Taylor Green became the first player ever to be named the Brewers Minor League Player of the Year twice. He was named top prospect in 2007. The Brewers call these awards Robin Yount Performance Awards.

These days, organic duds are not only good for the environment, they actually look good, which puts the "fashion" back in earth-friendly fashions. What's more, the green clothing world now offers an array of fabrics, from the softest bamboo to the silkiest soy, which helps not just in the style department but feels comfortable as well. Organic cotton has made it big, for sure-you can find an organic onesie for your baby at Whole Foods, Target, and (close your eyes, this one hurts . . .

From a market-driven perspective, the fight against global warming hinges on creating demand for both energy-efficient technologies and renewable alternatives to fossil fuels. But these innovations come at a steep price, and cost-conscious businesses, already burdened by rising health care costs, want a relatively quick return on their investment in a facility upgrade or solar panels. If the payback is too long, most won’t commit.

I would like to see if anyone in the Milwaukee area is interested in attending a satellite rally here in Milwaukee in conjunction with the one advertised below in Washington DC. Depending on the response, I will look into a venue and post information regarding our own "Green Our Vaccines" rally. Join Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carr...
