A Word About Recycling with Gloria and Ollie Maier - Feb. 7

Today is Super Bowl Sunday, so some may have other things on their mind than reading about recycling so will keep it short (but we hope they recycle the beverage cans and jars/cans from the chips dip mix).
An item from the Resource Recycling eNewsletter caught our eye. (We were not even aware there was such a program as this.)
The article started: “In recent months, a number of communities in North America have inched closer to exploring mixed-waste processing, while other projects have hit roadblocks.”

Life's Surprises with Gary Smith: The choice to take the high road

Sooter Hooples stood near his apple shed at his Hooples Apple Farm.
He was in his 80s and still told stories with a gleam in his eye.
“God First. No Sunday Sales.” That is what his advertising sign said.
He taught Sunday School still, as he had most of his life.
He told us of when he was in the fourth grade and a bully picked on him regularly.
Sooter had a plan. He had a rock in his pocket. The next time the bully picked on him he would pull the rock out of his pocket and bash the surprised bully in the face.
