I am fascinated by how other countries approach recycling. I recently visited a website called Recycle More from Ireland. Their approach, like so many European countries, is detailed. They expect their citizens to make the effort to recycle as many items as possible. And they certainly don't limit their recycling to plastic bottles and aluminum cans. There is no one-stop drop-off for many items. If you are Irish, you take electronics back to electronic shops, batteries to shops that sell them, etc.

Turkey platters abound on the top shelf in my kitchen. There are all kinds: tin, white glass, clear glass, colored china and thick plastic. Some may be alike, but most have different scenes with a large, colorful turkey in the center. I think I have at least 30. I just cannot help myself when I see a pretty one that is cheap and colorful.

According to the Federal Register, on Dec. 7, 2009, the Environmental Protection Agency "found" that current and projected concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations. Unfortunately, this finding and the EPA's subsequent action threaten the health and welfare of current and future generations of Georgians far more than greenhouse gases do.

Dear Georgia public-school teachers, It is new school year but, alas, the same old impediments: an out-of-touch federal bureaucracy, ideological state legislators who choose not to send their kids to public schools but intend to tell you how and what to teach, and a society that values reality television more than quality education. Sometimes, I wonder how you manage.

Trapper Jack removed four gators Wednesday morning from ponds in Hinesville's Bryant Commons Park. The city contracted Trapper Jack and his assistant, Valerie Jones, to remove the nuisance gators for fear they would attack children who fish in the ponds during special events. Bryant Commons, which is leased by the city, holds music festivals and events that draw large crowds. Jones said the gators will not be euthanized andwill be relocated 20-25 miles from Hinesville.
