Get Green, Get Your Money Back

In national news, Larry Hagman, of Dallas fame, has launched a fantastic campaign to support such green causes as Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF). RefundsForGood will show you how to get money back from the IRS and donate it to do some real good for the environment.

In local news Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio drives a hybrid Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio, please consider moving across the bay and running for office. Mayor Iorio has signed the Conference of Mayors For Climate Protection agreement. St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker has not.

St. Petersburg’s Mayor Rick Baker’s approach to development, and his lack of enthusiasm toward any efforts for recycling are often criticized, and rightfully so. In fact, our esteemed Mayor, Rick Baker was instrumental in getting the Val Pak Coupon Printing Plant to be built in St. Petersburg. Expectations are that the plant will be able to produce 54-million coupons per year, up from 24-million. Imagine, billions of packages of unsolicited coupons dumped into mailboxes and then trash cans all over the country will come from my very own back yard. Way to go Mayor Baker!
