Perhaps the ultimate ‘buy local’ enterprise is the NCCA-Artsplace “Holiday Artist Market” in downtown Fremont. Those familiar with this oasis of creativity have likely already paid a visit to this emporium of artistry. However, if you have never been through their doors during this time of year you have been missing out on the opportunity to be gifting some truly unique items to the favorites on your list all from local and regional artists and makers.

Generate Upcycle's Bill Caesar seems to have omitted a few issues lately when he has been in contact with the press. Reading both sides of this evolving story, it appears that EGLE, perhaps because it is now under a new director, began to look more closely at the AUA permit (Agricultural Use Approval) issued to Fremont Regional Digester (FRD). These types of permits generally have less oversight than the new type that is being required. Egle’s Director, Phillip Roos stated that part of the reason that the Fremont digester's AUA permit was even sent up any red flags in the first place, in part, was because of the ongoing and frequent odor and digestate spread issues/complaints that have occurred since FRD opened.

A lot of backyard animals, like rabbits, are hibernating. Many birds and ducks have flown south. And turtles are burrowed into the sides of creek beds. But squirrels seem not to notice that winter has arrived. Near me, numerous grey and black squirrels are hopping from tree limb to tree limb and occasionally foraging for nuts below. With leaves off the trees, their nests are visible everywhere.
One tree looks like a hotel for squirrels. These nests are made of...
They’re killing me.
Love the Lions, love Coach Dan, but man, I gotta tell you they are killing me these past few weeks. A squeaker, an improbable comeback win and a truly bad loss and now this Jekyll/Hyde performance against the Saints?
Look, I have endured this team’s propensity for striving toward mediocrity since Eisenhower was president. I know what being a Lion fan is about.
You don’t allow any more than fleeting optimism.
You await big plays being called back due to penalties or third down stops evolving into pass interference calls.
Turnovers at crucial moments are...
