  • Spring Valley home now powered from sun

    “It’s nice and open up here,” observed Dennis, taking in the rays in his back yard on South Broadway, knowing that the home’s southern exposure and the 18 solar panels on the garage roof did their part to actually turn back his power meter if there was enough sunshine.

  • My family has this thing for weapons. Ever since I can remember, we’ve had toy swords and guns lying around the house. They’re something we can’t really do without. My family can get a lot of enjoyment out of a day spent outside swinging swords around and yelling, “Bang! You’re dead!” at each other. I can remember spending some afternoons playing incredibly epic Wild West games, but those are probably equaled in number by the times we’ve engaged in full-scale battles and charged at each other with swords.

  • There’s been a lot of concern, expressed in this column more than once, about children not spending enough time in nature. Research has shown that a typical child spends 38 hours per week consuming media outside of school.
