About DCNews 

In The Spotlight 
Currently in the DCN Community Spotlight is the Yolo Hiker web site, 
at:  http://www.yolohiker.org 

Log on to the web site for the new Fall 2004 through late Spring 2005 
schedule of guided hikes in the Cache Creek, Putah Creek, Berryessa and 
Blue Ridge areas of Yolo County and surrounds.  Andrew Fulks and 
friends have provided maps, photos and descriptive information on this 
site, to help raise awareness of our regional natural places and 
resources, for all to enjoy.  Take a look, and join them on one of the 
many scheduled hikes. 

Every few weeks, the DCN web team chooses a new Davis-oriented web site 
for the community spotlight. Spotlighted sites are featured on the DCN 
home page. Good spotlight candidates are new or recently revised web 
sites, ones that deserve more attention or have timely content.   If 
you've a suggestion for a spotlight candidate, please contact the web 
team, msmosaic@dcn.org 

DCN Organization & Community Calendar  
DCNís Web Team has developed and is now offering a free web calendar 
program for community groups and nonprofit organizations.  The unique 
offering is both an Organization Calendar and a Community Calendar.   
As part of an organizationís  web site, the Calendar can list 
organization events and schedules.   Events of broader popular 
interest, can be marked to appear on a Community Calendar, and can be 
user searched by topics, such as arts, education, sports, and more.  
Early users include the Explorit Science Center, a number of school 
PTAs, and City of Davis.   
To see examples, log on to the Community Calendar on the DCN home page 
at http://events.dcn.org 
If your group is interested in a free Calendar or in knowing more, 
please contact rl@dcn.org 

DCN Mailman Listserv Class 
DCN will conduct a free Mailman listserv class on Thurs. Nov. 18.   
This class is offered to assist community groups and organizations that 
 have requested and will be using this free DCN allocated community 
Internet application. 

If your group is already using or is interested in using DCN Mailman 
listservs, and you need some help, this class is for you.   To reserve 
a class seat or to request one or more Mailman listservs for your 
group, just contact rl@dcn.org 
DCN classes are from 6:30-8:00 p.m., at the City Computer Lab, 600 A
