Step into Nature

As I was driving north on Route 123 toward the traffic light, my peripheral vision caught an unexpected sight on my right. A set of freshly constructed wooden stairs and handrails had magically appeared, seemingly overnight, leading into the woods.

How delightful! My imagination conjured up a group of forest sprites who must have worked overnight with tiny saws and hammers to entice passersby ...

The Art of Protecting Water

Last week it was announced that the Daily News had laid off half its editorial staff. The parent company, the aptly named Tronc, Inc., explained that the layoffs were necessary in order to focus on its online media. If you plan to get all your news online, you probably know by now that the internet is a great place to find cat videos. Do you hear “laurel” or “yanni?” Did ...
