At this time of the year, our bulbs are in full bloom, the trees and shrubs are flowering and leafing out, insects and other critters are emerging from their winter hibernation, and many colorful birds are arriving to take advantage of these new resources.
The way we sit, stand and move every day leaves an imprint on our bodies, which builds up over time and can lead to pain, low energy and poor focus. And if you’re one of the many people who sit at a desk working with computers all day, it’s important to train your body to be able to handle this well.
Trees are critical to our livelihood. One tree can sequester up to one ton of carbon. Trees also help to improve the air we breathe by absorbing harmful pollutants through their bark and leaves and releasing clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Letters to the Editor
I was deeply disappointed to see this year’s proposed Fitchburg Capital Improvement Plan delays funding for the Fitchburg Teen Center (to 2030!) and the Hub, both of which were approved last year after hours of supportive citizen testimony. We cannot wait 9 more years to invest in our young people.
