Missing dog: Paul August sent this in and it gave me a laugh so I thought I’d share. “I saw this posted at the only gas station in North San Juan. ‘Missing dog. Reward (no amount). One and 1/2 year old American bull dog, missing since June. His name is Kilo.’ “

Want to help on Grad Night? I ran into Janis Aydelott at B&C, and she told me they could use volunteers Saturday for NU’s Grad Night. Grad Night is a safe and sober all-night party for graduating seniors from Nevada Union. The event takes place at Club Sierra Sports and Fitness from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Graduates spend the evening dancing, sumo wrestling, swimming, playing racquetball, laser tag, watching movies or enjoying the casino room, hypnotist, manicures, magic shows and much more. Prizes and complimentary photographs are also provided as mementos of this fun-filled evening. Grad Night is not school-sponsored; it is funded entirely by donations and ticket sales. For more information e-mail or Tina Skrukrund,

A 5-year-old’s birthday wish: This is different! Anne King e-mailed me the following: “My daughter turns 5 next Monday and for her birthday she wants to ride on the local buses. I’m not sure how many people use the bus, but my daughter thinks it looks like a lot more fun than riding in the car!”

Canned cat food: The shelter is desperate for this! Any type, any size! Kittens are here! Bring to Nevada County Animal Shelter on McCourtney Road from 1-4 p.m. Monday through Saturday or to The Union and I will deliver for you.

Praise for Nevada City Music Events: If you haven’t been to one of these at Miners Foundry, you’re in for a treat! Here’s what Michael Hill-Weld had to say. “My wife and I attended our first Nevada City Music Event at the Miners Foundry, Nevada City, and it was great. Mikail Graham created the best nightclub in town featuring two great bands, a dance floor big enough for the many dancers, seating areas above the dance floor for listening and viewing the bands, a smoke-free atmosphere, a full bar and delicious food. It could not have been better. He has 10 more music and fun-filled evenings scheduled between now and mid-September. I urge you and your readers to support live entertainment by attending one of the events soon!”

Want to speak Spanish? Susie Fatheree sent this in. “Several months ago you ran an item for me regarding my trying to start a group for people interested in speaking Spanish. A group was formed, but we really need more members. For the most part we are all at a fairly basic level. Our next meeting will be June 26, at 2 p.m., on the deck at Alta Sierra Country Club. Anyone having questions should contact Bob Crooks, 272-3173.” Bob will give you an idea of what the group is about if you want to call him to chat.
