“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” —George Bernard Shaw
The closed Sparrow Point shipyard in Maryland, once the biggest steel mill in the world, is opening up again to make wind turbines. The United Steelworkers Union has partnered with U.S. Wind to start building the wind turbines there. The first project will produce 22 turbines.
The steel mill once employed thousands of workers and this new partnership will bring jobs to the area with 500 permanent and more than 3,500 construction workers.
The jobs will be Union jobs and provide not just income to the workers and their families, but will also have a positive financial impact on revitalizing the community.

June Roundtree and her husband had scoured their neighborhood for three weeks looking for their dog, Abby, to no avail. All that Abby left them was an empty collar and dog tie-out. They began to believe that Abby was lost forever.
June was working at register six at the local Walmart when she could hear a commotion in the store. Staff and shoppers alike were trying to catch a stray dog that was running frantically through the store. Soon, racing through June’s register was Abby. June called her name and she came right to her. United at last.

These kittens are very happy with their heated floors. We wish we had those floors in our RV too!
