There has been a lot of talk lately about renewable, clean energy sources, and about oil in particular. I've been very interested in learning what presidential candidates Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain think about the future of America's energy. So far, I haven't heard enough about the environment, though. Maybe in the last debate they will touch on it; the candidates are scheduled to discuss domestic and economic policy. In the meantime, I ran across this article in a newsletter sent out by Tim Abe with the Washington County Public Schools' Fairview Outdoor School Center.

In other words, windsurfing is like making a hollandaise sauce. " It was his turn to look baffled. Swish. Hey, if you want to play games, I can play games. Although I wasn't sure this windsurfing gig was one in which I wished to engage. I could always hold my own in the top-tier sports: baseball, football, basketball, tennis.

I have several things on my mind this week. First, I was elated to see that someone reads Leif E. Green. I got an e-mail from Herald-Mail reporter Julie Greene that a reader had called in about an earlier article I wrote about reducing the number of catalogs in your mailbox. The reader suggested instead of calling each catalog (my suggestion) to go to www.catalogchoice.org/dashboard Web site and they would remove your name from any catalog mailing list you wish. I got on the Web site to see how it works.

To the editor: I would like to add a postscript to the Bill Stryker Jr.'s excellent article - "The oil is there, if we'd only drill" - that appeared Sunday, June 22. Stryker makes an excellent case for more oil production by the U.S., but there are still many more reasons. There are many more products that are petroleum-based than just gasoline. Also, when is our Congress ever going to become educated to all of these facts that will affect our total economy? Here's a list of many items that we use every day in which petroleum products are used in the manufacturing process.

I've found that taking a little time to store my lawnmower properly in the fall saves a good bit of frustration at the start of the next growing season. It can also improve performance, add life to the machine, and help avoid costly repairs. To winterize your lawn mower, Dan McFarland, ag engineering educator from York County Extension, suggests these simple steps: 1. Empty the fuel tank. Gas that sits in the engine during colder winter temperatures can gum up and clog the carburetor.
