I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is winding down.

To squeeze all we can out of our few remaining weekends, our little guy is having a big water party with his friends Saturday. So we'll be digging out our squirt guns.

We're also digging out buried treasures for our upcoming garage sale. A little extra cash at the end of the summer goes a long way.

For your summer fun, here's what Craig has up its sleeve for you.

The Craig Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors' business after-hours mixer is from 5 to 7 p.m. today at the Chamber, 360 E. Victory Way.

West Theatre is holding over "Charlie St. Cloud" and getting in "The Other Guys" to replace "Grown Ups." So if you haven't caught "Grown Ups" yet, you have just tonight to get down there. And then the next funny movie moves in.

Redbox has "The Ghost Writer" and a few others out this week, if curling up on the couch is what you're craving.
