Hey, parents: Are you already hearing that dreaded summer chorus, "I'm bo-o-o-ored!" No need to put up with whining any longer: The City of Aurora is offering a kids' cooking class, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. today. Open to kids ages six to twelve, it costs $24 for Aurora residents and $31 for the general public, and will be held at the Expo Recreation Center, 10955 East Exposition Avenue in Aurora.
