MARYSVILLE — Now 35 and the owner of a martial arts school, Carlton Doup admits when he was younger, he was the target of plenty of bullying because his feet turned in noticeably. Oct. 5-11 is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Week and Doup said the obvious physical difference in his feet was a perfect example of something bullies latch on to in order to make their victims feel small or bad about themselves.

The good and bad about Compact Fluorescent Lights

The good and bad about Compact Fluorescent Lights

Compact fluorescent lights are trendy, environmentally sound and last forever — up to 15 times as long as incandescent bulbs. But they’re no angels. They are mini fluorescent lights, like the tube versions found in nearly every office in America. That means they contain calcium phosphate powder, which contains mercury. This gets into our landfills, and can eventually seep into our waterways.
