I hope you had a fun-filled holiday weekend. I spent so much time with family and friends I took a three and a half day leave from the computer. Looking for good news to share with you I came across stories I wish I hadn’t seen and you probably have. If you don’t like the news you’ve heard lately I hope you will keep reading to see there are good stories out there.
My first piece of good news is that I received confirmation that a sidewalk will be built connecting the grocery store plaza with the rest of the town. Of course not all good news comes from the goodness of the heart. Years of wrangling over a sidewalk with residents who didn’t want it the decision was made after a young woman was hit by a car on this stretch of the road. Luckily, the victim is doing well and wasn’t seriously hurt.
In other news, Brad Pitt (the actor) with his “Make it Right” foundation is building modern beautiful homes for Native American’s, living in reservations, who are at or below 60% of the reservations average income. In addition a percentage are being reserved for seniors and disabled veterans. Check out some of Pitt’s amazingly designed homes.
The EPA has proposed new standards for landfills to reduce methane through capturing landfill gas. This is good news but let’s do our part and reduce what we send to the landfills. Going after the gases from landfills wasn’t enough, the EPA has proposed approval of climate-friendly refrigerants.
what good News do you have to share this week?
