Trails to Love

The annual Covered Bridge Festival brings thousands of people to Parke County, Indiana every year, providing a boost to their local economy in a short period of time. The Covered Bridge Gateway Trails Association is working on creating a more permanent flow of tourism by building connecting liner parks. In 2009 the Association, a501c3 non-profit, was formed, by a group of folks who are not avid cyclists or runners, but people who care about the future of Parke County. They are concentrating on a 12 mile trail development from Rockville to Rosedale. Through the Rails-to-Trails program Governor Daniels started, they...

Litter Pickers by Bicycle

Before the dew ever sets into the grass on Sunday morning, Terre Haute resident Rance Fuqua has already stopped for a donut and coffee on his bike. The red light on his back tire flashes, and he peddles in the darkness navigating to Walter Baldauf’s garage. Once there, the two tinker around for a bit. As the sun slowly starts to rise, they strap kitty cat litter buckets and large plastic totes to their bikes. With one hand on their handlebars, and the other holding a long grabber, they are off, meandering around the streets of Terre Haute to pick up litter....

‘Space tree’ serves as reminder to protect the earth

Exposing kids to a variety of experiences can help better direct their future. This lesson couldn’t be any truer for Jerry Ross. “The beauty of the earth is inspiring,” he said. As a child he was enrolled in 4-H. “It was one of those organizations I felt that helped me as a young person to mature and develop and to learn responsibilities and to learn to stick to something I committed to.” His 4-H foundation helped launch his stellar career as an adult. Ross grew up in Crown Point, is a graduate of Purdue University, a retired Air Force officer and...

Ditzler Orchard

Ditzler Orchard in Rosedale (8902 S 625 W) sits on the top of a hill off a half-paved, half-white-rock road. The orchard reminds me of fond memories from my childhood. Growing up in New England, it was a fall tradition for my aunt and uncle to take me and my sisters apple picking. As a child, the trees seemed so tall. My aunt and uncle, six feet tall or greater, would hoist me up or put me on their shoulders. I would reach high up into the tree and grab apples and pass them down below to be put in...

Renee,

What are the environmental impacts of heating my home with wood 

Ryan

Ryan,

A standard wood-burning fireplace is only 5-10% efficient. It typically only provides heat directly in front of the fireplace and much of the heat is lost through the flue and rear wall. Because it’s inefficient, it [...]

Amber

Amber,

What can you burn or what should you burn? I imagine you can burn a lot of different things. However, you really shouldn’t burn something [...]
