Today is Wednesday, May 25. Here are five things you need to know today.
1. We want to hear your thoughts on a Sullivan Square/Rutherford Avenue redesign -- on camera. Today reporter Stacey Leasca will be on Main Street outside of Zume's to capture local reaction to last week's meeting with Rep. Capuano and next steps for the city's plan to improve Rutherford Avenue and the square. If you've got an opinion -- no matter what it is -- please stop by around 5 p.m. today (that's Wednesday) to chat with Stacey. (We'll be airing the videos over the next week, if you want to hear what people have to say.)
2. The Charlestown Chamber of Commerce is continuing its with a presentation by holistic healer Shawna Pelton, who will be talking about wellness in the workplace.

4. I couldn't make it to Grasshopper Cafe yesterday for the mayor's "ribbon cutting" with the Smiths, but fortunately the Your Town Globe reporter could. Check out her photos and some details from the event here, at Boston.com.
5. Yesterday was pretty spectacular, weather-wise. I can't take all of the credit for it, but it *was* my birthday (32!) and I did ask the sun to make an appearance. Will it today? Forecast says mostly sunny, high of 73 today.
