For us down-to-the-wire procrastinators, there's still time to get free tax help today and tomorrow at various locations of the Seattle Public Library. Be prepared to wait in line, and bring all your paperwork. Not all the branches offer help during all business hours: look here for locations and times.

A panel discussion on the Future of Capitol Hill will look at the Broadway light-rail station and its expected impact on parking and density. Dow Constantine and five Capitol Hill movers and shakers are confirmed panelists. While free and open to the public, it may already be full. (Erickson Theatre, 1524 Harvard Ave, 5:30 p.m.)

The Ballard District Council Meeting is jam-packed with agenda items, including historical landmark preservation, parks levy projects, converting street lights to LED from sodium vapor and rezoning industrial lands. (Ballard Library, 5614 22nd Avenue N.W., 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)


City Light is bribing people with offering a free compact fluorescent light bulb and an energy saving shower head to the first 100 attendees of a future of energy meeting. (Southwest Community Center, 2801 SW Thistle Street, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)

Today's your very last chance for free tax help. Speaking of taxes, you old fashioned paper-filers who need that midnight postmark have only one semi-local option: the Riverton Station at 15250 32nd Avenue South in Sea-Tac.
