News That Matters
Good Thursday Morning,
The new Yellow Book crop has grown out of the frozen ground again, the one plant that defies Nature's winter sleep, isn't there one day, but the next, is everywhere one looks.
It is Holiday Shopping time again and remember our pledge?
$20 and nothing from China. It's tough, I know, but belts are tight all around and splurging at Christmas is one of those things that's hard to undo once the oil bill comes along. Be sensible with your spending this year.
Over at the blog there's a list of small, local companies who can meet our $20 pledge. If yours can too, drop me a line with the pertinent information for inclusion on that page. But remember, you need to offer quality gifts for $20 or less and they must not be made in China.
Political correctness has reared its rather ugly head again. Several kids at Westchester Community College were talking amongst themselves, 'Yo! Nigga!" When a Black student walked by, overheard this interpersonal conversation and took the language out of context. An argument ensued. A fight ensued. The courts are involved and in the meantime, both Blacks and Whites of a certain age continue to use the term freely amongst each other in greeting, common speech and well, to be and sound just like their cultural icons. Man, is that ever gay!
Tomorrow is our weekly Things To Do Edition so if your group, organization or club is having some sort of event this weekend or into next week, drop us a line by this afternoon for inclusion. Don't forget!
And now, the News:
Wild Hive Farm, of Clinton Corners, celebrated the opening of its new cafe, bakery and local foods store in November.
More than 1,000 trees were planted on behalf of customers of Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. who switched to electronic billing, the company said in a news release.
