Beyond Beltway, Democrats are even worse off for now

Syndicated Columnist - Dick Polman

We’re all so fixated on what’s happening right now in Washington - where Team Trump, shocked by its own victory, is scrambling to form a government with predictable incompetence - that it’s easy to ignore what’s happening in the states beyond the Beltway.

A Word About Recycling

Ollie Maier- Columnist

Last week we concentrated mostly electronic recycling so today we’ll cover a little on plastics from the Resource Recycling eNewsletter.

The first item in their newsletter spoke about the election just over. “With the long election season finally over, our election signs can now forget their divisive past and begin anew as toys, lawn chairs or trash cans.”

We find that in a past election, one plastics reclaimer received about 150,000 to 200,000 pounds of the corrugated PP signs. They receive those plastic signs from all over the country.

Dahlia Does Design: Old linens: Re-purposing family heirlooms

Q: Dahlia, can you recommend ways to use family linens passed down to younger generations?  So many times we inherit tablecloths and bedding from our grandmothers, moms and aunts but they don’t go with the latest décor, current colors or patterns.  So, Dahlia, please suggest ways to re-purpose a legacy of hand-me-downs to use in our homes.
