Getting information into the Daily Bulletin
Then on Saturday, the Record had a heart-warming front-page feature about the Village Community Outreach Campaign, which has raised $32,000 this year for Citizens Concerned with Crimes Against Children. "They were like angels falling out of the sky," CCCC organizer Judy Harding says about the Village dons and other residents who helped bring in the money.
Rose Simone, the reporter who writes many of the Record's articles about higher education, will be speaking on campus today, at 12 noon in Davis Centre room 1302. Her topic: "Feminism, the Mainstream Media and the '90s Backlash". She's sponsored by a lively collection of UW agencies: the faculty association, the Professional Women's Assocaition, the women's studies program and the advisor to the provost on academic human resources.

A public meeting tonight at Bluevale Collegiate Institute looks at the future of the Bechtel Park wetland on the east side of Waterloo. Graduate students from UW and Wilfrid Laurier University, advised by George Mulamoottil of the school of urban and regional planning, are doing a study of the area.
Job posting #4 is available this morning in the co-op department in Needles Hall, as the spring work term draws ever nearer. Employer interviews will be starting Monday.
And for faculty and most staff members: tomorrow's payday! The January pay date was advanced by two days, from Friday to Wednesday, because December's pay is just a distant memory by now.
