Viewpoint: Adapting to a changing climate
I'll never forget the time that I got lost running on the trails at Jay Cooke State Park in the pouring rain. My friends and I were up north for a 1980s-style girls weekend camping trip (more on that another time) and I was training for my second Grandma's Marathon. Early in the morning,...

There was a whisper of spring in the air, tickling the needles of the pines and ruffling the feathers of the phoebes. I took a deep breath and smiled.

Viewpoint: Hold the salt, please
There's been a lot of talk in the press lately about the salt we use to keep our roads and parking lots safe in the winter. While good old-fashioned salt is the deicer of choice for many municipal road crews and private parking lot maintenance companies, it threatens lakes, streams...

When the Washington Conservation District approached the county fair board in 2006 about building four demonstration raingardens at the Washington County Fairgrounds, some board members were a bit skeptical. In addition to the one week per year that people flock to the county fair,...

After a long, cold winter like the one we've just experienced, it's easy to get dreamy-eyed thinking about a time when we will be outside enjoying our yards. The first time we need to mow the lawn each year, it's almost enjoyable. At the same time, though, it is easy to get over-zealous...
