 A Tribute to a 200-Year-Old Tree 
     I was away the other day when my neighbor had a tree cut down.

Not so good? We’ve got you covered there, too

      Very often, my newspaper gives me just what I want. Plenty of puzzles to work over the splendidly empty days after Christmas. Insight into the world around me, from my community to the cosmos. Advertisers to fix what’s broken and bring me unexpected benefits, like the Pashmina shawl from Green Phoenix that’s kept me warm since Christmas.
Help Bend the Arc of the Universe
      The holiday season invites us not only to make resolutions for the New Year but also to reflect on our lives and our actions, our values and beliefs. It is the time when we turn the corner of the calendar from the darkest days to increasing light.
A Bird (and Cat) Story
     There seems to be a lot going on in the paper with birds lately. Here is my own bird story. 
Full Circle on Missing Birds
     I cannot believe the various responses regarding the plight of our birds. We still have a lack of participation, even with the woodpeckers. The squirrels are loving life. Thinking about roadkill to attract the eagles.
     Thanks Bay Weekly for providing this forum

Missing: Deale Songbirds
      I live on four acres in the woods

Recycle Your Pumpkins
by Timothy Johnson
     After Halloween, what’s next for your pumpkins? 
     Please, not the landfill. Pumpkins are 90 percent water and add tons of water to the landfills, contributing to the problem of groundwater contamination. As pumpkins break down, they create methane (CH4), a greenhouse gas more powerful than carbon dioxide (CO2).
