Bike to Work Day

Last issue, Josh Lee wrote an Event Horizon pick "Bike to Work Day" in a sarcastic tone so thick as to cross the line of good taste.

Hoof Dreams

2019 Hoof Health Conference

The wait is over! The Hoof Trimmers Association is stampeding through town this weekend for what will most likely end up being three solid days of absolute debauchery at the 2019 Hoof Health Conference. The infamous band of scoundrels are gathering at the Crown Plaza to view chute and trimming demonstrations, shop vendor booths and meet with like-minded, hoof-obsessed enthusiasts—for three days. Yes. Starting at 1pm on Thursday, Feb. 21 and continuing through Saturday, Feb. 23, those rowdy rascals are trading hoof secrets and discussing hoof health with basically no oversight, meaning pretty much anything can happen … like maybe a comedic ventriloquist amongst a 40 and under mixer and other tomfoolery. Tickets for active members of the association, dairy producers and veterinarians cost $175. For casual observers, tickets cost $310.

No Peace, No Justice!

Black Lives Matter March

The state we live in is historically a melting pot of culture and beauty. During February, Black History Month, we observe all facets of African-American culture: history, progress, the victories, the continuation of repression, the love. What better time than Saturday, Feb. 23 for the annual Black Lives Matter March? Stand tall and raise a fist to fight alongside the brothers and sisters of the community. The march starts at 5pm at Century 14 Downtown and goes loud and proud into the night, ending at 10:30pm. Stand against police brutality. Stand against inequality. Stand for peace. Stand for justice. Affirm the existence of black bodies in a world that consistently tells them they aren't human. Stand for humanity.
