Many agree the proliferation of plastic grocery bags in area landfills is environmentally unsound, but one man here is trying to do something about it.  For the sixth year, Jim LaRue has raised money from local businesses and individuals to purchase canvas tote bags and have them decorated by local school children.  LaRue says it is the kids and teachers who do most of the work in this program.  Meanwhile, over its lifetime, he says one of these reusable bags can avoid the use of as many as 5-million plastic bags. Those bags are being given free on Saturday to the first 500 shoppers who go by Jackson Whole Grocer beginning at 9:00 am.  No purchase is necessary.

  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
