Today’s Lowdown

There he is!

July, the summeriest and thus best of all months, begins today in Humboldt and elsewhere. Whee!

But there is a problem. As he has a penchant for doing, our striped friend Waldo has gone missing again. Bwa no! This time, it seems, he is lost somewhere in Arcata — this intel comes from this submitted event which goes on to tell us that Waldo will be “hiding” in Arcata businesses for most days in July. If you find him, you just might win prizes at a party on August 1. More details can be procured with a stop in to Northtown Books

(LoCO Exclusive Hint: This particular Waldo is roughly four inches tall and prefers to hang out on shelves.)
