My low-tech greenhouse is sprouting baby rainbow chard. I use egg crates, nestled in an aluminum pan, covered with plastic wrap, and have them sitting by a window over a heating duct. The baby plants are just pushing up and you can already see the colors: yellow, orange and red. My husband loves Swiss chard; I do not. I blame my Aunt Rosemary for traumatizing me as a child by making me try spinach.

So many meetings this week and not enough time! Monday night we had an EDC meeting. Tuesday night was the Regional School Unit 3 compliance meeting. Wednesday night was the selectmen's meeting, which had been postponed from Tuesday so I could attend the Tuesday night meeting. Thursday night we split duties, with Dan and Tony attending the public hearing on dwelling standards, while I went to the RSU 3 municipal officers budget meeting. Who needs to go to the gym when I've walked the 10 1/2 miles to Room M111 twice this week!

We should see some of the new LED streetlights around the first week of May. They will go in the four major intersections and one by the Family Dollar.

Mary Leaming at Unity Barn Raisers is working on a volunteer event for Earth Day April 21 to clean Triplet Park, Kanokolus, and other areas around town of trash and debris. It'll be a two-hour event, followed by coffee and snacks. More details to come.

On Friday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be a drug-take back at the Community Center. This is supervised by our Sheriff's Department. It's very important that you do not throw your old drugs (including over-the-counter) in the trash or dump them down the drain.

Coffee with the sheriff Thursday, April 12, at 93 Main Coffee Shop from 6 to 8 p.m. It's a great time to meet and talk with Sheriff Trafton in a non-blue-light atmosphere.

Special town meeting Wednesday, April 18, to vote on the proposed dwelling standard change in the ordinance and a few TIF articles. The warrant will be posted next week around town and on unityme.org.

Our deepest condolences to the family of Mark Huard.
