For the sake of water cooler conversation, it would be good to know that about 80 years ago this week, construction commenced on the Hoover Dam, which took five years and over 100 lives to complete.
And for the sake of having no secrets or surprises between us, it would also be good to know that today, due to being all tuckered out from a long and eventful weekend, we're running this article on a Tuesday instead of its usual Monday slot, and it's in a somewhat condensed format.
To epic works and shortened ones!
1) Let’s get the government meeting stuff over with: Tuesday at 6 p.m., city staff, two city council members, an ad-hoc group and a few members of the public and meeting will attend the joint meeting in the Hercules City Hall Council Chambers.
2) Wednesday will hold another meeting of the local government-minded when the meets. The committee will continue its quest to find a new city attorney. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at , and it’s open to the public.
4) Are you in need of a makeover, or do you know a Herculean who is? Well, why not check out Salon 2138 at 2138 Railroad Ave.? The full-service salon opened only a few weeks ago.
5) If you happened to find a man’s wedding wing this weekend, you now know who to return it to. This person lost their gold wedding band at Franklin Canyon Golf Course over the weekend.
