IQ: Jump for joy! 

Springtime is here and there's a lot to do -- houses to clean and lawns to grow, gardens to plant, games to play -- not to mention the observance many religious people are paying to their respective faiths this time of year. And what about the city? Our local government has a lot of work to do, as well. Drivers, pedestrians and bikers alike have been inundated all winter with road construction, especially downtown (and they're not even done yet). But hey, overlook the dust and drill sounds and enjoy the serene perfumes of blossoms, the sight of leaves jutting out on trees, the return of the birds and the life-giving rains that soon, no doubt, will fall.

Student
Neighborhood: Colorado College

What is your big spring-cleaning project (figuratively or literally)? Get rid of most of the stuff I have accumulated

over the past three years, because I'm moving to India.

What are you personally doing to save the planet? I don't have a license or a car. Actually, probably not as much as I should be doing. Obviously I recycle -- all the basics.

What is Passover? I don't know. I'm pretty sure it has

to do with the trek from Egypt, but I don't want to make

any specific comments.

What does Good Friday mean? Good Friday is the Friday before Easter when Christ died.

What city project should be the no. 1 priority? I think that Colorado Springs especially and most of Colorado is expanding at an amazing rate and that we're killing a lot of our natural resources and the area around here. Maybe if we do our best to kind of slow that process.
