Looking for a fun event this weekend that doesn’t involve horror movies, trickery, and lots and lots of sugar???

Look no further than the 2008 Tallgrass Bioneers Conference!  As I mentioned in our last post, Grinnell College, in partnership with the Grinnell Tourism Group, Catnip Farm, Cityview Magazine, Faulconer Gallery, iDEZiN Digital Workgroup, Imagine Grinnell, Iowa Foundation for Education, Environment and the Arts, Iowa Renewable Energy Association, and Radish Magazine, will be hosting the 2008 Tallgrass Bioneers Conference.  Head out to Grinnell this weekend to connect with other Bioneer locations throughout the country for the three day conference (October 31 – November 2).  You can find the full schedule of events here.  Or, to register, go here.

With all the excitement this weekend, don’t forget to head to your local polling place to cast your ballot for president and a host of other important offices.  You can vote early in Johnson County all election weekdays from 8am to 6pm at the Johnson County Auditor’s Office, 913 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City and at satellite locations.  Call the Auditor’s Office at 319.356.6004 with questions.

[If you get an error message on that page, place your cursor in the “house number” box after entering your full address information and hit “find.”]  For a Johnson County sample ballot, click here.  The Gazetteonline also has a great voter guide with information about candidates and ballots.  Find it here.

So get out there and vote! vote! vote!  (Well, only do it once…  but with gusto!)

Be well,
