Swimming Pool Water Discharge
I accidentally killed a fish. It was a goldfish, and it was a long time ago. My sister gave me one of her's to take home. It didn’t occur to her that I knew very little about fish in general. At home I placed my new friend...
Some bad littering here. I don’t get it. I really don’t. A few months ago the Town of Aurora was determined to implement a clear garbage bag program; a form of garbage diversion. It was supposed to be a good thing. It was supposed to be a ‘social responsibility’ thing....
