We’ve written about it before, and we’ll write about it again: the importance of voting. It’s a critical component of our democracy, and come Tuesday, Sept. 24, would-be voters can register during National Voter Registration Day.

It’s actually a holiday endorsed  by the National Association of Secretaries of State, supported by the National Association of State Election Directors, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and the National Association of Election Officials. It’s not a partisan day.

Many questions about recycling

Recycling may not be the most exciting thing to think about, but it is something that we all do at home and out in the streets. After years of throwing away used pizza boxes in the paper bin, we now know not to, that the greasy cardboard contaminates the stream.
