Five Things You Should Know for Friday, July 8
The weekend is just around the corner (for some, it may have already arrived); here are a few useful items for your Friday.
1. The crazy winter and spring are sure seeming worth the trouble now. Weather.com is predicting another great day: mostly sunny with a high of 85 degrees and virtually no chance of precipitation. Overnight, skies will be mostly clear and temps will fall to the mid 60s.
2. Friday is the first of three straight days the Hinsdale Swimming Pool will be closed to the public for the Hinsdale Swim Club Invitational Meet. The parks and recreation department suggests members head over to the Clarendon Hills' Lions Park Pool for the weekend.
3. BAMTheatre continues its Chicago-area premiere of Jeanine Tesori’s critically-acclaimed musical "Violet" Friday at the Hinsdale Community House. (It began Thursday and runs through Sunday.) According to the event's Patch announcement, "Tesori’s work with lyricist Brian Crawley on Violet—a toe-tapping blend of Country, Rock, Gospel and Rhythm and Blues—is arguably among her most powerful." Tickets are $16 in advance and $18 at the door.
4. On Patch this morning is an introduction to the Village of Clarendon Hills Home Rule Research Committee that met Thursday night as well as Jeff Ward's latest column, "Bicyclists Versus Drivers—Let's Try For Fewer Crushed Limbs This Summer."
5. On Friday, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will release its report on job growth unemployment rates for the month of June.
