Naturally Starched

We got our first clothes dryer in 1985. My mother was on her way to Europe, and this was our crutch: We’d have an easier way to do laundry in her lengthy absence. She returned, the dryer stayed, though it is seldom used. I never developed an affinity for the appliance. Weather is less convenient than the appliance, and weather takes up more space, but line-dried laundry makes your outfit stiff and straight. Naturally starched by springtime. While most people think of me as mainly a farmer; I have been a consultant on laundry lines for years. Helping new homeowners ... 28 May 2024 by Marilee Foster

VIEWPOINT: ‘Skip the Stuff’ To Reduce Waste

The “Skip the Stuff” concept — and, in some places, already the law — is galvanizing communities all over the country who are looking for ways to reduce single-use plastic that litters our streets and waterways and chokes our landfills. The objective is to reduce the needless distribution of single-use plastic at food service establishments or via those who deliver food by requiring customers to request items such as plastic utensils, extra containers, condiment packs and/or napkins. Currently, an estimated 60 percent of Americans order takeout or delivery at least once a week, and online ordering is growing 300 percent ... 27 May 2024 by Susanne Jansson

The Very Last Surrender

The history textbooks tell us that the end of the Civil War was when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox on April 9, 1865. Another candidate for the war’s conclusion has an anniversary this weekend: Two months after Appomattox, on June 2, General Edmund Kirby Smith, commander of Confederate forces west of the Mississippi River, surrendered in Galveston, Texas. Once again, the textbooks leave out the Native Americans, because the very, very last Confederate field general to surrender and thus truly end the Civil War was Stand Watie. Born Standhope Uwatie on December 12, ... by Tom Clavin

Strength in Numbers

The Village of Southampton has become the first municipality on Long Island to completely ban the use of gas-powered leaf blowers. The process was deliberative and inclusive, with an emphasis on a phase-out. Southampton Village’s deputy mayor, Gina Arresta, said last week that when “I first became a village trustee four years ago,” there was a “push from residents” for a ban on gas-powered leaf blowers. A task force was put together that she led, which consisted of people from “all sides — contractors, landscapers, residents, members of the village’s Environment Committee. You have to bring people together.” And the ... by Karl Grossman
