Music is in the air and in our souls as the world greens up around us, and music is the subject of a lecture by St. John's College tutor Andre Barbera on Wednesday at Francis Scott Key Auditorium.
Barbera will speak on "George Gershwin and Jazz," at 8:15 p.m. The free event is open to the public.
XTC "The compositions of George Gershwin are identified with jazz for both historical and analytical reasons," said Barbera.
He has a doctorate in musicology with a minor in symbolic logic, and is the author books and articles on ancient and medieval music.
Previously, Barbera taught at St. Mary's College, the University of Notre Dame and Cornell University.
No matter how much one detests housecleaning, it's hard not to get bitten, just a bit, by the urge at this time of year.
One technique for making it easier is to get rid of the clutter in your life, like last year's phone books, and leftover hazardous materials that you knew you shouldn't put in the trash but didn't know how else to dispose of them.
The county comes to the rescue this month by accepting hazardous household waste at the Public Works Department on Truman Highway. Products should be left in their original containers.
Old phone books are also being collected at locations around the county. For information on locations and hours for the hazardous waste collection, call 222-6103.
What is billed as "The Best Spaghetti Dinner in Annapolis" will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Salvation Army building on Hilltop Avenue.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $2.50 for children age 12 and under, and include spaghetti, bread, salad, dessert and a beverage. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
The Salvation Army is offering free delivery to people who can't make it to the hall.
Call 263-4091 the day of the dinner to arrange delivery if you need it. The price is the same.
The county is looking for counselors, specialists, directors and counselors-in-training for playground activities this summer.

For information on qualifications and interviews, call coordinator Kathy Kremer at 222-3535.
Speaking of summer, is your bathing suit glaring at you from its wadded-up position at the back of a drawer? Does the idea of going out in public with your winter insulation hanging out make you want to switch to the night shift at work?
