  • Living a light-green lifestyle

    People say they love spring because everything turns green overnight. This spring, I turned light green overnight, and the next day, confused my husband with my advocacy at Wal-Mart.

    He asked if I’d like to add a case of bottled water to our shopping cart, and I wanted to answer quicker than I could get the words out. At that moment I decided purchasing bottled water – those 24 bottles, specifically – would pollute the earth. Immediately.

    When it comes to feeding the body and the soul, James Stovall is smokin’.

    Oldham County residents, stop polluting

    To the editor:
