Looking for 'good junk'

Cassandra Mickle (center), an art teacher at Stover Middle School, has been collecting "good junk" for years. The "good junk" includes Styrofoam meat trays, egg cartons, old magazines, containers with lids, toilet and paper towel tubes and other items.

Due to recent budget cuts, Mickle said she has relied more and more on these items – much of which is donated by the community -- for her art classes. Most recently, a large donation of art sketch pads was given by Dan and Lisa McDonald ...

More spending by public, private sectors would stimulate economy

In August you ran an enlightening editorial on the U.S. government's revenue, appropriations, deficit, and debt levels for fiscal year 2011. By eliminating eight zeroes from each figure, thereby reducing trillions to tens of thousands, you brought the picture down to a scale the hypothetically typical Smith family could relate to; and you reasonably concluded that the unfortunate Smiths would "be headed for financial oblivion."

We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
