Message from the Editor

If you are like me you are counting down the days and hours when Spring officially arrives with the Spring Equinox. Enjoy the longer days, the sounds of frogs and birds as life stirs awake.

In celebration of Earth Day, April 22, the next TAKE 5 will have a “green" theme with local news and tips to help us step a little lighter on the planet.

Here’s some highlights coming up this month:

  • 14th ~ Daylight Savings Time Begins,
  • 17th ~ St. Patrick's Day,
  • 20th ~ First Day of Spring & International Day of Happiness!

~ Marina Sacht Editor/publisher
