Tickets are still available at the Waterloo offices, LOBO Books, Book Woman, and Top Drawer Thrift Shop. Don't know about you, but we're going as therapists. Now that's frightening. 444-9922. Ooooh Scarier! Don't forget, Tue, Nov 4 is Election Day. There are a number of propositions on the ballot. A re-cap of our endorsements is under "Page Two" in this week's issue. As usual, the League of Women Voters has published their excellent Election Guide, including lists of polling and early polling locations. We found ours at a local Rec center.

Hack & Whack The Arthritis Foundation is looking for a few good golfers... or mediocre golfers... or complete duffers. There are only 39 slots (filling quickly) in their 100 Hole Challenge to raise $$ for arthritis research and community programs. No matter how bad you are, you will be treated like a PGA pro. Raise $10 per hole and you are in. The Challenge is Mon, Nov 3, sun-up to sundown at the Berry Creek Country Club, 30500 Berry Creek Dr., Georgetown. 800/284-2438. 3-Minute Blow Hards You've got three minutes to present your pro or con on the whole Gas-Powered Leaf Blower issue. There will be a Public Hearing, Wed, Nov 5, 7pm at Council Chambers, 301 W. Second. Don't even think of talking about any other kind of lawn equipment. This is for blowers and their "stakeholders" only. 499-1898 Blow Up Your Own Skirt No hemming. Or hawing. Those lesbians are at it again: drinking, dancing, cruising, carousing, raising money for a good cause. Lock up your daughters, daddy, it's time for the Autumnal Club Skirt, Thu, Nov 6, 7-11pm to raise $$$$ for Cornerstone Gay & Lesbian Community Center. Bring $10 and your best line. 708-1515. Hippier Than Thou In conjunction with National Literacy Day (Sat, Nov 1), our local Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is hosting their annual Kidz Concert & Bookfair, Sun, Nov 2, 2:30-4:30pm at Liberty Lunch. For only $5 per, you and the li'l crew will enjoy Los Pinkys, Joe McDermott, the Ben Hur Shrine Drum & Bugle Corps. Cool. 345-9629. Terrible Twos & Holiday Blues We've been doing this column for two years now and we just want to let you know how much we love you (kiss! kiss! kiss!). What better time to celebrate the true intention of this column than the holiday season, which for us laconic hedonistic types stretches from now until the Epiphany!

"Public Notice" will print Holiday Wish Lists in early December again this year. Submit a list of 10 items your organization needs. On your organization's stationery, include your name, address, and phone, plus a contact name and number for publication. Address it to "Holiday Wish List" using the guidelines below. Deadline for Holiday Wish Lists is Wed, Nov 12. E-mailing these lists is highly encouraged; faxing is highly discouraged.
