When March rolls around, people wonder if it comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, or vice versa. With the weather we have been having, it is hard to tell.

Some will say the cold weather would be like a lion; others will say this "balmy" weather we have had the last few days resembles a lamb. The verdict is still undecided. You decide! Either way, March brings us a wide variety of entertainment.

You can start tonight by making your way to the LuCille Tack Center for the Arts. There you can view the imaginative art work of Kathryn Petke. Her opening reception runs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. If you did not get a chance to eat, there are some refreshments available.

Enjoy the weekend, but remember to set your clocks ahead before you go to bed Saturday night. Yes, that's right, it is daylight saving time. It doesn't seem possible with all this snow covering the ground.

If you enjoy reading books, especially those by Wisconsin authors, you will once again want to visit the LuCille Tack Center for the Arts on March 16. Jay Gilbertson, author of the Madeline Island series, will be on hand to talk about his new book. The program starts at 2 p.m. If you are not familiar with his works, you might want to come and listen. All his books are good reads.

Guess what! There is a local election this year for the Spencer School Board and the Village Board of Trustees. There is actually a race in each area. Three people are running for two seats on the school board and four people are running for three seats on the village board. The Woman's Club is hosting a candidates' forum at 7 p.m. March 20 at the Spencer Municipal Building.

On March 22, Atlantic Steps brings one of Ireland's oldest dance forms to the LuCille Tack Center stage. Reserved seating tickets for the 7:30 p.m. performance are $20.

On March 23, another entertaining event takes place in the gymnasium. The Spencer Rockets Special Olympics basketball team resumes their rivalry with the Spencer Fire Department. For more details, keep an eye open for one of my columns in the near future.

On March 25, the C.O.M.E. (Community Outreach Meal for Everyone) will be held at St. John's Lutheran Church from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Anyone is welcome.

Of course, what would March be without March Madness! Boys basketball has reached the sectional level while the girls just got underway this week. Do you have your bracketology picks ready? The NCAA tournament is just around the corner.

What's your take on the Packers Family Night change?
