Here are some events I’ll be covering today:

I’m going to watch Nancy Alleman, a dental hygienist who provides services to underprivileged preschool kids in Pierce County, give a presentation and screenings at Sheridan Elementary. Cue the warm and fuzzy feelings.

I’ve put in some calls and e-mails about the possible closure (and sale?) of Trinity United Methodist Church on McKinley Hill. I’m hoping someone from the church’s regional office will get back to me today, and I’ll pass on the info as soon as I get it.

Tonight I’ll be at the community forum dealing with the friction at Ninth and Pacific (where Brick City is located). I’ll update live from the meeting (it starts at 6 p.m.) and have something in tomorrow’s paper.
