*The City of Ashland invites citizens to provide their feedback and input on what artists should consider or know about Ashland when creating a major art piece for the Gateway Island (the piece of land between the Fire Station No. 1 and the Library).

*Another very informative article was written for us by local nutritionist Greg Gillette. This time he discusses amino acids and their unique abilities to help us with emotional and physical pain, and breaking harmful addictions.

*Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s “Two Gentlemen of Verona” has partly received attention due to its all female cast (and the canine cast member). The Daily Tidings reviews the play.*

*The Daily Tidings also reviews the Ashland Contemporary Theatre’s current production of “Mr. Williams and Miss Wood“.*

*We recently posted our latest installment of our “photo blog”. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is then a 10,000 word article displaying the beauty of the flowers along the Pacific Crest Trail in the Soda Mountain Wilderness.

*In order to demonstrate to our legislators that Oregonians care about climate change, Southern Oregon Climate Action Now invites regional residents to sign the ‘Oregon Climate Declaration.’ We’ve already reached roughly 3/4 of the way to the global warming ceiling of 2 degrees Celsius, the time to act is NOW.

*A barn that stands in the way of development of an Ashland park on Hersey St. will be torn down after no buyers stepped forward to purchase and move the building.*

*The fire danger level has risen to “High” recently, and therefore restricts a number of activities which you can read via the link. We’ll see if today’s rainfall has a lasting impact on the danger level moving forward.*

*Created in fall 2013, the Food Integrity Project (FIP) started with an earnest idea: A group of people simply wanted to be able to go out to eat (in Southern Oregon), but didn’t know if there was anywhere, other than a couple organic salad bars, where they could be sure they weren’t eating GMOs.

*If you’d like to catch up on all of our listed events for this week, you can do so by visiting our calendar page.

*For a lighter piece reading, the National Wildlife Federation has posted an article about 10 of the Best Things About Camping.
