Key Food Parking Lot

What's going on at the Key Food parking lot?  They repainted the parking spaces and moved them back a way from the sidewalk.  Was hoping there was a plan to plant a nice screen there.

Voting Info

FYI Where ever you're voting. If you are confidant with where you need to be & they claim not to have your name. demand that they find it. Today me and another gentleman fought for a good 5 minutes until they actually figured it out. They tried to send me to another location. I refused and they found my name. Also the Board of elections website was down for most of the morning and for my county, no location info is/was on file Including

It doesn't matter who for, as long as you vote.

Cherish that right, exercise your voice. What is at stake is really important. Not just in the abstract. But in concrete ways, your life will be impacted.

You live in a country with an imperfect system. But you still matter in it. So make your voice heard, and vote.

Thank you for indulging me the editorial,

Just a fellow citizen

The New Tioronda Kids; Songs Of The Garden; Yellow Taxi Video is Right On The Mark About Global Warming!

Some of you know me for the work I've done with the 9/11 Survivor Tree, & some know me from the Sargent~Downing Gardens.
