Today is Earth Day! I just learned about an interesting way to celebrate -- join the newly formed Citizens Climate Lobby. This group - which has chapters all over the country - takes action on a local level to lead to changes on a national level that will help address the problem of climate change. The group isn't a Democratic or Republican group. It is simply a group for people who want to face the issue of climate change. Come out for the first meeting of Pottsville's Climate Change Lobby at the Pottsville Library tonight at 6:30 pm.
On a totally different note, there are three different business oriented workshops throughout Schuylkill County all happening this week for those interested in expanding their knowledge and skill set.
