Making smart, healthy choices in selecting and preparing fresh foods has the short-term benefit of better health for those you feed as well as lower energy bills; it has the long-term effect of caring for the planet. The article provided easy ways to accomplish better health and lower bills for our entire co-op. Who wouldn’t dig that? —Laura Withers, Planters EMC member, Perkins Refreshing my memory I enjoyed June’s magazine. I especially liked the article on judicial review. [See “Liberty notes,” page 7;] It was good to have my memory refreshed. I know I had studied Marbury versus Madison, but had forgotten. And I grow blackberries, so I enjoyed that story. [See “Brambles without the briars,” page 36;] Do keep up with the ideas on the “green angle.” I am very interested in doing anything I can to cut down on my energy use and do what is good for the environment. —Brenda Vail, Hart EMC member, via email A bundle of joy I received a wonderful gift box from you yesterday that contained a tote, two magazines, a pen and pencil, two recipe books, a day planner, etc. as a second-place prize pack in your Travel Guide giveaway. Many thanks for the gifts and for your magazine. We love it, read it through and pass it on to our misplaced Georgia relatives in Colorado and Idaho.
