Water Crisis
Jan 13,2009

The average amount of water that American’s use outside per year is over 66,175. Each person per household uses about 70 gallons of water per day. We can reduce these large numbers with a few easy tricks, which in turn will help our suffering environment. A faucet dripping once per second will waste 3,000 gallons per year, so make sure you turn off that dripping faucet.

Recycling
Jan 13,2009

I am a student a Carl Sandburg Middle School. Starting off the New Year of 2009, our science is beginning the unit of Investigating Energy and Its Transformations. Many students of our school have strong opinions about whether global warming is a natural cause. Other students, including me,


global warming
Jan 12,2009

Hi my name is Brian Smith and I am an eight grader at Carl Sandburg Middle School. I believe that Americans are accelerating the global warming in our earth by using too much energy. Even though America only has five percent of the world’s population, we consume 26 percent of the world’s energy. America is ranked second in the world when it comes to consuming energy.

The environment
Jan 12,2009

I am a student in the eighth grade at Carl Sandburg Middle School. Two words in today's society seem to cause a lot of commotion. Climate Change. Some say it's us, some says it's just a natural cycle. I personally think it is both. Yes the earth has patterns, and maybe we haven't been around long enough to have seen this happen before. But there has to be some reason why the changes are starting again, why now?


ASK MERRILY/Stop Gifting Me
Jan 06,2009

I have a friend who often gives me things for my home that I really do not like. I have tried to only put them out when she comes to visit but she has begun to come by "just to stop in".

ASK MERRILY / War Movies
Dec 30,2008

Dear Merrily, My husband is a veteran who likes to watch war movies in the evenings on TV. I hate them as they give me nightmares. I usually read in the other room, but I'd rather be where he is - we are both busy and our time together is special. I have mentioned this to him, but it doesn't seem to register. Have you any suggestions?

ASK MERRILY/ Absolutely Annoyed
Dec 30,2008

Dear Merrily, Your answer is fine to a point. But, I need good time for me, not just always being a good wife and mother for someone else. I need real relationships that do not always ask me to be patient and giving. I need to have me be a priority at least to me. Your answer may be right, but there are times, right now being one of them, when I am absolutely annoyed at being told I just need to nurture a little more.

ASK MERRILY / Funeral
Dec 25,2008

My husband and I are scheduled to go on a once-in-a-lifetime all-expenses-paid trip to London. My 87-year old grandfather is in failing health and has weeks to live. What should I do if my grandfather passes while I am overseas? Should I come back for the funeral? My husband would not be able to come back early with me. Or, should I "say my goodbyes" before I leave?
