"The Solar Saucer" made an appearance yesterday in the Safeway Market parking lot. The owner/operator, Scott, was visiting friends here in Ashland, taking a break during a long road trip. The saucer is "a mobile solar powered DJ booth made almost entirely from reclaimed or found objects". Towed behind a solar panel encrusted truck, it's logged something like 40,000 miles - making stops at music venues, public parks, elementary schools, etc. More about it can be learned by watching the YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RteelKAAx0M

Ashland High School alumnus and Kansas City Royal starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was in town yesterday to help kick off a fund-raiser for renovation of the school's football field. Jeremy has pledged $650,000 to the project, which will replace the current grass field with synthetic turf. He addressed a crowd in the Grizzlies' gymnasium and afterwards signed autographs and posed for photos.

I originally posted an entry about the guitar man pictured here, Chris, back in October. Then I saw him performing in front of the Peerless Restaurant on 4th St. A few days ago, here he was near Ashland Hardware, playing and singing from his extensive playlist for the pure enjoyment of doing so.

A couple of days ago, a group of activists gathered at the downtown Plaza to voice their concerns regarding geoengineering, pertaining to what they describe as a systematic aerial spraying of toxins into the atmosphere. The Southern Oregon Blue Skies Project headed the local protest in hopes of making more people aware of their message.
