    Have you noticed how holidays start earlier and earlier?  As a child the Christmas season didn't start until after Thanksgiving.  Now Halloween stuff starts appearing in stores in Aug and the holiday season begins sometime in Sept.

    The holiday season is fast approaching and everyone should try to celebrate sustainability.  The idea behind celebrating sustainability is not creating a mountain of waste.  The first thing to do is to shop small, local, indie and farms.  Another way to celebrate sustainability is to give events.  Events are simply activities instead of things.  Mark your calendar for Nov 17-18 and head up to Bangor for the Maine Harvest Fest.  Take the family, invite a friend and enjoy a day of Maine.

    Some words are so powerful they have both concrete and abstract meanings, and “home” is one of them.

    Home can be synonymous with “house,” a structure in which we live, seek shelter, raise our families; but it is also an amorphous concept linked to feelings of belonging. I have a little sign in my living room that sums it up in one nostalgic sentence:  Home… a place your feet may leave, but your heart will always stay.

    I’m super excited to announce I’ll be on the news!  I was interviewed yesterday by Hannah, a reporter with WLBZ2 News Center about my Zero Waste/Plastic Free Journey.  I had to do a big kitchen clean only to realize it still looked untidy.  I also realized how imperfect I am and that’s OK.  Hannah asked about tips to get started and I said “Pick up trash”.  Pick it up today, tomorrow and everyday you can get outside.  It’s good for you and good for the environment.

    How do you keep a year-round island community vibrant? One key ingredient is a flourishing school, a fact that Islesboro realized generations ago.  Education has always been important to islanders, from the days when there were half a dozen one-room schoolhouses dotting the winding roads to today, when the halls of Islesboro Central School hum with engaged kids from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

    Halloween is a fun and festive holiday but also quite trashy.  Please make sure you collect all your outside decorations.  Left outside not only do they look sad and forlorn  but  anything made of plastic starts to break up into tiny pieces.  We might not notice but small creatures think the bright colored bits are tasty morsels.  Pack everything away to use next year.  You’ll save money and less will end up in the landfills.

    You may not have considered what a tutor could do for you and for your child.

    Is your child having trouble with organization? Where does a student learn how to take notes, keep vocabulary lists, make flashcards, practice pronunciation of a foreign language or memorize key math formulas? Classroom teachers have a great deal of material to cover in every class. They may not be coaching students on how to keep on top of everything. Tutors can help.

    As the election winds down I feel that it is important to let the constituents of Camden, Rockport and Islesboro know where and how I spent my clean election funds. I appreciate the Clean Election system and feel fortunate that the program exists here in Maine.
