City Council and Mayoral Candidates Forum
Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs ( ONE-PS) and the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce are co-sponsoring a City Council and Mayoral Candidates Forum on October 14 at the Jewish Community Center on Alejo Road. The Forum will be moderated by award-winning journalist Hank Plante and shown live on KMIR. The Forum will be from 
6:00pm to 8:00p.m.,
 but because of the live TV broadcast, audience members will need to be seated by 5:30 p.m. If you would like to submit questions for the candidates to answer, please email your questions to 
by Sept. 25. Anyone may submit a question.  Hank Plante, as the moderator, has the final say on what questions are asked and how they are phrased.   Hank will consult with a group of ONE-PS and Chamber volunteers to review the potential questions.  No one who is a candidate, working for a candidate, endorsing a candidate or donating to a candidate will be involved in reviewing the questions or in preparing the questions for the Forum. The questions will not be made known to the candidates before the Forum.



The Living Desert is excited to announce that the baby giraffe, born at the zoo on April 26, has been named Ayo, announced Allen Monroe, President/CEO of The Living Desert.
The name Ayo, which means "happiness" in Nigerian, was chosen by the director of animal programs along with the main African area zookeeper, from more than 50 entries in an internal contest. The contest was open to park staff and volunteers and the winning name was entered by The Living Desert's director of trains, Joe Schneider.
"Ayo is a perfect name for this baby giraffe," said Monroe. "He exudes happiness and brings smiles to everyone who sees him."  
Ayo is the first baby for mom, Tuli, and sixth calf for the father, Hesabu, who both came to The Living Desert from the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The Living Desert is currently home to a herd of six giraffes, four males and two females, all of which are on exhibit in the African section of the zoo.
