LARSON: Every day is Earth Day at Hamilton Mill Library

When my friend Nancy Rowland insisted I see the Hamilton Mill Library, I had no idea what would make this library any nicer than the rest. It took only seconds to realize that not only was this place a work of esthetics, but a work of environmental genius as well.

LARSON: An activity that’s for the birds

Last year, after reading about the yellow-bellied sap sucker in a Daily Post blog, I tried to find out more about the bird. Not only did I learn more than I could ever want to know, but I found myself clicked in at a Web site posted by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

LARSON: Happy to have run with the horses

Having raised our boys in the Parkview cluster, I’d always thought of myself as a pure bred Panther. But in writing my last column, Mike Doyne, of Lilburn Middle, made me realize I have Mustang roots

LARSON: Read any good books lately?

Going over my book list for the past year always provides a bit of entertainment, especially when I see titles I don’t even remember.
