Parents of teens are invited to learn “Everything You Wanted to Know About Davis Teens But Were Afraid To Ask” from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Brunelle Performance Hall, 315 W. 14th St.

Sponsored by the Davis Police Department, the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office, the Davis school district and the city of Davis, the presentation will focus on Internet safety, adolescent substance abuse and drug trends in Davis.

The event is free and open to the public, though intended for adults only. For more information, contact the school district’s crisis counselor, Jennifer McNeil, at jmcneil@djusd.net or (530) 757-5400, ext. 133.

Donate to Red Cross at Davis Ace

Davis Ace Hardware will donate $1,500 to the American Red Cross this month to support tsunami survivors in Japan and is challenging Davis residents to match the contribution. Donations are being accepted through March 31 at any Davis Ace Hardware cash register.

For more information about the American Red Cross, call (800) RED-CROSS or email info@usa.redcross.org.

‘Heart to Heart’ moves to Wednesdays

“Heart to Heart,” heard on KDRT radio in Davis, moves to a new day and time this week. The show, hosted by Dr. G, a psychotherapist and life coach, airs at 4 p.m. Wednesdays on 95.7 FM.

In addition, alternate weeks will feature a French-English version of the program, titled “Coeur a Coeur.” It will feature French music and poetry, as well as messages and comments intended to provide guidance and inspiration. English translation will be intermingled along the way. Occasional guests will continue to add flavor to the program.

“It’ll be great for folks who miss speaking or hearing French or are learning this beautiful and poetic language,” Dr. G promises.

Health Care for All plans strategy

The Davis chapter of Health Care for All invites members and the public to help plan strategies to pass the California Universal Health Care Act, SB 810, at a meeting from noon to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 26. The group will gather in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis. Pizza will be provided.

“Please bring your questions and thoughts about a single-payer health care reform approach, and ways to be involved with the enactment of universal health care in California at the state level,” an organizer suggests.

For more information, contact directors Millie Braunstein at (530) 747-0380 or Jerry Marr at (530) 759-9928.

Children present musical at church

“The Rock Slinger … and His Greatest Hit!” will be presented at 7 p.m. Saturday by the Children’s Musical Ministry at University Covenant Church, 315 Mace Blvd., Davis.

Tickets are available at the door for a suggested donation of $2.

DPNS rolls out red carpet at auction

The annual DPNS fundraising auction is Saturday from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St. The evening’s theme is “The Red Carpet.”

Tickets are available for $35 at the door. For more information, contact Cindy McReynolds at cindybrownmcreynolds@yahoo.com.

Preview spring plant sales at UCD

Gardeners thinking about adding new plants to their home landscapes can visit the new demonstration plantings at the UC Davis Arboretum Teaching Nursery during a special tour on Saturday.

The tour will focus on the best plants for Davis’ garden climate, including the Arboretum All-Stars — plants selected by the Arboretum’s horticultural staff for their beauty, reliability, heat and drought tolerance, and value in attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators.

No plants will be for sale during the tour, but visitors will get a preview of the Arboretum’s spring plant sales.

The tour will meet at 2 p.m. at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery, on Garrod Drive across from the School of Veterinary Medicine on the UC Davis campus. Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 55.

For more information, call (530) 752-4880 or visit http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu.

Learn basic Arabic this spring

Local residents are invited to enroll in Arabic 101 this spring at the Davis Art Center. Razzan Zahra will teach a class from 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays, April 7 through May 5, at the Art Center, 1919 F St.

The class is designed for beginning students, from teens through adults. Participants will focus on learning to speak, read and write standard Arabic. In an interactive and supportive environment, students will learn basic nouns, verbs and adjectives.

Arabic 101 is equivalent to half a quarter of Arabic teaching material at UC Davis, Zahra said. Those who complete Arabic 101 and 102 may qualify to test out for Arabic 001 at UCD.

The fee is $90 for Art Center members and $100 for the general public. For more information, call (530) 756-4100 or visit http://www.davisartcenter.org.

Free employment law clinic slated

Legal Services of Northern California’s Yolo County office will host a free employment law clinic for low-income residents of Yolo County from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 29. The clinic will take place at Legal Services’ Woodland office, at 619 North St.

The clinic is an opportunity for low-income Yolo County residents to obtain free legal advice concerning employment-related problems, including unpaid wages, unemployment insurance claims, state disability claims, wrongful termination, discrimination and general worker’s rights. Interpreters will be provided.

To sign up for the clinic, call Legal Services at (530) 662-1065 or (916) 447-5798 (for West Sacramento residents).
