Apr. 16: Nosh, Beads, Heat, Hinckley, OMG PD

Our newest Readers' Choice poll, temps in the 80s, and our first-ever OMG PD make up 3/5 of your 5 Things To Know Today.

Nosh: Johnston's got some of the best eateries around — and we're looking for your vote on where to get the best sandwich in Johnston. Stay tuned for our newest Readers' Choice poll.

Beads: It's April vacation everybody! [Kids: YAAAY! Parents: AAAGH!] Don't panic, though, because we'll be posting daily reminders of great activities to do with the kids — like today's Beads Galore program at Marian J. Mohr Library, scheduled to start at 11 am. Kids 5 and older [bring an adult, too] are invited.

Heat: Have you been waiting for one of those nice, sunny, 80-degree days? Wait no more — the JohnstonPatch WeatherBug forecast is calling for exactly that today. Clouds build in tonight and tomorrow, but nothing serious; next chance of precip is Tuesday night.

Hinckley: In case you missed it, we posted our latest Great Debate question yesterday afternoon, asking: How Do You Rate Hinckley's Chances? And if you don't know who we're talking about, click the link to learn more.

OMG PD: You'd be forgiven for thinking that we've been posting OMG PD, our weekly wrap-up of odd police reports, forever — but in fact, we only started it on this date last year. Guy claiming aliens shot him was our top entry.
