Blowback: Township's Citizens Override Board's Vote for Wind Project

The  Wizard of Oz story is an instructive parable to many problems that we face in everyday life whether we choose to do so is another matter.  If you recall a big wind whisks Dorothy Gale's house all the way to Oz just to land on a nasty witch.  Dorothy takes the witch's shoes and has a whole host of adventures, just to lose…See More

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.
