BRO-TV: Day on the Trail

December 30, 2020 0 Comments

first_imgOn May 1st, Leah and I joined forces with the folks over at Visit Southern West Virginia to host a hike on one of West Virginia’s many fabulous trails. The Grandview section of the park was our destination, and with sunny skies, cool weather, and a great group of folks, we couldn’t have asked for a better time! The Grandview Rim Trail overlooks the New River, and there are awesome overlook platforms along the way that make for great photo opps! The trail is partly shaded by rhododendron and mountain laurel, making it a great destination when the plants are in bloom.To top off the hike, the wonderful team over at The Dish Cafe in Daniels, W.Va., met us at the end to prepare a delicious lunch: polenta cakes, grass-fed burgers, and salad with homemade dressing. Delicious! Thanks guys! We’ll be back for those avocado brownies 😉The view of the New River from Grandview Rim Trail.The view of the New River from Grandview Rim Trail.Looking to the horizon.Looking to the horizon.Me (left) Leah (right) rockin' the selfie.Me (left) Leah (right) rockin’ the selfie.IMG_8372Another view of the New River from a Grandview Rim overlook.The whole gang!The whole gang!The fabulous Leah on a fabulous day.The fabulous Leah on a fabulous day. last_img read more

Protect environment, think before you buy

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI used to envy my friend in Portland, Ore. She could recycle so much more than my community allowed in any of the places where we lived. Now, recycling options are dwindling even there. The reason, according to www.waste360.com, is that China has adopted new standards in the materials they will accept from the rest of the world. The U.S. exports about one-third of its recycling, and nearly half of that goes to China. Now, because the materials are being looked at as too dirty or even hazardous, they have made the decision not to accept it for their own environmental and health reasons.When you are shopping for the holidays, try to make your vision: “reduce, reuse and recycle.” Or buy second-hand. Think about the items you are buying. Consider if they are necessary and take a good look at the packaging. If you have a choice, buy the ones with the least packaging or those in recycled packages. Bring reusable bags to the store with you. You can take them to the hardware store, bookstore or big box store, as well as grocery stores. Think about giving reusable bags as gifts this year. You can never have too many. And wrap in something fun like newspaper or fabric.Maybe Oregon is the “canary in the coal mine,” and the rest of our nation of recyclers could be next. This will affect local landfills. So if that is your concern, please shop wisely because our land and environment are too important to become garbage dumps.Florence CarnahanSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlinelast_img read more
