So sad Jeff is leaving. He was always so supportive - helping to get the word out when was a concern & is such a creative educator - finding interesting & informative items to share with viewers. Not to mention what a truly nice man he is. Happy trails & thanks, Jeff!

A new year means a fresh start on keeping the air clean. You can help by idling less and encouraging others to do the same. When we reduce vehicle idling, we help save lungs, air pollution, fuel, vehicle wear-and-tear, and money. Healthy air is in our hands!

Somebody got pajamas for Christmas!! For healthier air, avoid using the fireplace when temperatures drop by adding a layer or two to what you are wearing inside the house. Perhaps there was a matching robe to these holiday P.J.s!

Let's kick off the 2019 with clean air! This New Year's, help us keep PM2.5 out of the air by carpooling or using alternate modes of transportation, burning seasoned hard wood and enjoying nature's clear-skied star show.

There is a certain sense of freedom in being able to get around without your vehicle. And you get in touch with the peeps around you, instead of being isolated all by yourself in your car. I have taken the bus for 20+ years & my transit/bus buddies improve my life considerably.
