Yes absoltely and by the way we pick up trash and walk in a shopping cart on our way in to theRead More store.

I constantly pick up trash on our street and if i am walking some people do not care are they lazyRead More ,slobs,or inconsiderate back to the subject yes they should ban styrofoam there are many other choices we have that are biodegradable

We never liked Styrofoam containers! Paper and cardboard cups, and containers at least deteriorateRead More with time, while Styrofoam lasts for decades! Enforcement of law by police for littering would also help diminish the environmental pollution on our fields and roadways as well! Illinois would be wise to pass legislation which would begin a returnable deposit on bottles, cans, and containers!

I have found if you have the right stuff for sale it doesn't matter what day of the week you haveRead More the sale......its how well you advertise, place signs that you pick up each day at the end of the sale. We've done quite well in a child moving out and then downsizing. You don't expect to sell $100 + items unless you advertise them on craigslist first.

I like going out to yard sales more than holding them although we do at least twice a year. MyRead More boyfriend is great at finding deals (more expensive items) and then flipping them, that's pretty awesome! I enjoy the early mornings out together, coffee, meeting new people and sometimes coming across something really cool, like my angel bell. I've never heard of bookoo.com Stephanie P, gonna look into that for selling : ) thanks!

Come on people get a grip! The product is NOT MADE FOR CONSUMPTION, even though the article seems toRead More have confused most of you. It’s just a healthier alternative for children, free of toxins.

Don't know about this BRAND - but health food stores sell coconut butter, which is very tasty onRead More toast. Some of you "commenters" need to check facts...

Do you think opening Midnight Pass is a good idea? Patch file photo.

Restore Midnight Pass. As a 30 year eyewitness to the gross deterioration and loss of marine seaRead More life, birdlife, sea grasses plus theloss of Turtle Beach , this natural asset needs to be restored. Denial of permits has always been political, not sound environmental assessments. For the record, I am not a boater and never had been.
John H Cisler August 27, 2013 at 08:39 pm
my family and friends used the pass many times and camped out overnight with our boats, the flow wasRead More a great cleansing for the bay and what a great place for shrimping at night. Open it\ John Cisler

bob tripp, 8/28/13 Closing the Pass was a colossal mistake and should never have been allowed. ItRead More deprived the Community of a natural gateway from the Gulf to Sarasota Bay and resulted in the Bay suffering significant damage. It should be re-opened. Long over-due.

Marijuana is a good thing because: It heals people in many waysRead More http://www.realfarmacy.com/still-believe-nature-got-it-wrong-top-10-health-benefits-of-marijuana/ By legalizing marijuana people can use a natural plant to help them rather than the miriad of drugs and chemicals that pharmaceutical companies try to get us addicted on. By legalizing marijuana you keep many people out of prison who should not be there and thus not taxing the system and the general populace as much. By legalizing marijuana people smoke fewer cigarettes and drink less alcohol, which is much more harmful then marijuana. By legalizing marijuana, industrial hemp becomes much more attractive which is better for the environment to harvest and use for products then any other plant By legalizing marijuana you will then take some of the hypocrisy out all the hands of those who are trying to control you and me.

Yes, I am all for legalizing marijuana, especially for health reasons, of course the drug companiesRead More might not be happy thinking of the money they will lose.
Deborah Weatherby August 21, 2013 at 10:40 am
Remember that the Prohibition laws gave rise to the mafia, an organization that still thrives todayRead More due to its beginnings when the Volstead Act. Today gangs from all ethnic areas have arisen due to the draconian laws concerning drugs. Legalize and eliminate crime, allow the states to tax it for income and allow it to be available for those who need it for medicinal and yes, recreational use. Who would I rather see driving down the road, a drunk or someone high on pot, neither, however one is so impaired that he can't stay on the road, the other drives way too slow..WOW

It is desperately needed for our northern beaches. Of course we want visitors who visit the islandRead More on weekends to enjoy themselves, but it is time to use manmade structures to protect our homes, as Gov. Christie has said so eloquently.
Don Griffith July 11, 2013 at 09:20 am
There was never supposed to be building in that area to begin with. Unfortunately money talks andRead More they were permitted to build there. As far as I am concerned let nature take it's course, as it will and quit messing with it.

So, once a new runoff/sewage pipe is installed in this area (like Venice), will Siesta Key beRead More demoted to a -2 stars? Too many times I have been anchored off Siesta Key and found myself surrounded by a brown sheen on the water that smelled like feces! What happened to our priorities if we can't/don't care for our once pristine beaches?
BluePeach28 June 29, 2013 at 10:09 am
I can't believe this!! I'm a native Floridian that has just moved back here. This is so sad andRead More shocking! Grrrr. What can I do???
Liz Taylor June 29, 2013 at 11:16 am
It is ironic that people like to treat the ocean as a supermarket and a sewer at the same time.Read More Whatever we contaminate the water with comes right back to us by way of fish and shellfish.
Liz Taylor May 19, 2013 at 01:00 pm
One of the best and easiest things people can do to help protect these springs, and ultimately theRead More ocean, is to reduce use of chemicals- especially fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
