Books make good gifts, but great books make super awesome, potentially life-changing gifts. Dollar Radio Headquarters offers their gift recommendations here.
The award winning Kossuth Garden is threatened by a proposal to develop housing on the property. Progressive urban planning policies are designed to protect such useful projects that have great educational, social, nutritional, and neighborhood benefits. The volunteer leaders are making sincere efforts to compromise with the developers to retain the garden while still allowing the housing development. Columbus City Council will address the proposal on Monday, December 7. To learn more, and to write a letter in support of the garden, contact Michael Doody <email@example.com>.
