It's Friday, April 26, Audubon Day. Happy birthday to comedian/actor/TV's gold standard Carol Burnett (1933). Today in 1986, a reactor explosion damaged the Chernobyl nuclear plant near Kiev. It was the worst nuclear accident in history. More than 100,000 people living in an 18-mile radius around the plant had to be moved from an uninhabitable zone. Thousands of people were poisoned by the nuclear fallout. It should be mostly cloudy, with a light northwest breeze and a high in the low 60s. Here are a few things to do after you've spruced up your natural habitat today:




• Find a nice vase at Gathering of the Guilds, the region's ceramic showcase, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Oregon Convention Center, 777 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. gatheringoftheguilds.com/
