A Lady of Charity in Mourning

The American Civil War claimed the lives of over 622,000 men between 1861-1865.  210,000 were Hoosiers or called Indiana Home.  With the heavy toll of war a Lady of Charity from 1865 would be in mourning over her family, friends and on April 15, 1865 we would grieve the death of our commander and chief  President Lincoln.   The mourning period  for women lasted for at least one year and could continue for up to two and a half years. Mourning was done for different amounts of time determined by…See More

The Case Against CAFOs in Indiana

There are already far too many protections and allowances for the many CAFO’s in our state.  A CAFO was proposed 2 years ago in Lakeville and our community rejected it.  The CAFO would have released liquid manure into near surface groundwater.  When stormwater reaches high levels in areas of near surface groundwater, karst, or other fragile lands,  existing IDEM rules mandating manure lagoons to contain the waste are NOT adequate and the waste can overflow into nearby surface waters or groundwater. Methane emissions are huge from CAFO’s.  A major contributor to climate change, methane is several times more of a concern than fossil fuel emissions....

First Green Tip for January, 2015

BUY RECYCLED PAPER PRODUCTS, such as greeting cards, paper plates, paper towels, computer paper, envelopes, gift wrapping, etc. It’s good that we all recycle our waste paper, but if there’s no market for the recycled product the system won’t work. Besides, using recycled paper products vastly reduces the amount of trees that are destroyed, and trees are crucial for absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Forests around the world are being decimated at a prodigious rate. “If every household in the U.S. replaced just one package of 40 paper plates made from virgin fiber with 100% recycled ones, we could save...

Climate Clues

You can’t tell anything about the climate by just looking out your window at the conditions in your backyard.  Likewise you can’t tell anything about the global climate by looking only at the conditions in Indiana. Jeff Dukes, Purdue professor and director of the university’s Climate Change Research Center, tells how 2014 was relatively cool in Indiana but other parts of the United States were clearly warmer in 2014 and globally it was one of the warmest years on record. Check the Indiana Public Media website for the full article.  Submitted by: Dick Sprague Regional Coordinator Anderson

Net gain

Hello, Renee!

I have been forever collecting the plastic mesh bags that hold produce — mostly apples, limes, lemons, etc.  I keep thinking my kids could make the best fishing nets out of them if needed. This is probably just a bad side effect from watching too much Doomsday Preppers
