On the scene – Lots of great events

So much good feedback about events that happened last week. Miners Foundry was the venue for two successful events: St. Patrick’s Day (place was packed, said Bard Kathryn Smith), and the Mind/Body/Spirit Health Fair (“People seemed very happy to be wandering in a space where they could express themselves,” said organizer Suzie Daggett, who was happy also with the increased numbers of visitors).

Confusion resolved. Anyone who has been disappointed that their notice did not appear in the calendar section at the back of the Prospector might have gotten it in to Janet Lee too late. Her deadline is 5 p.m. on the Friday before the issue. When in doubt, it’s best to send notices earlier, like two weeks before the Prospector you want to see it in.

Another heads up. We cannot use photos off the Web. Too small. So the drill for submitted photos (by e-mail) is jpg, 150 dpi, with a caption, and large. What is large? No smaller than 4 inches by 6 inches. The graphics department has spoken.

We continue to get calls from folks who take umbrage with the Prospector’s style of using days of the week sometimes and dates the other times, but never together. It is the call of the managing editor, Pat Butler, and his call is: for the seven days covered by the current issue (Thursday through Wednesday), the days of the week are used. For all other references beyond those seven days, it is by date alone. So, now when you are reading the just-published Prospector on Thursday morning and a reference is made to Sunday, you know it means three days hence. This is also in the Associated Press Stylebook, which is a bible for journalists on correct style.

Anyone wanting to be profiled as the Friday artist, please contact me for a form.
