The Good Earth

Save the Planet. That phrase has been on the minds of many these days. Despite what you have heard on the fake news channels, or what the guys at the barber shop are saying, or what the cast of Vanderpump Rules is spouting off about lately, there is something very real and tangible occurring to our planet, our country and our state. As parents, we want a future for our children, with clean air and water, nature’s wetlands, parks and prairies.

We are reminded of the need every April as we celebrate Earth Day, a tradition that began in 1970, as I was finishing up high school Calculus.
