Our focus for this next school year will include repurposing as part of our continued focus on “anti-litter” and environmental responsibility. Learn how you can make something old new again by repurposing! As you flip through the pages of this Sept/Oct issue, we found it very important to share the importance of what nasty critters mosquitoes can be for our health. When they bite, you just think it makes you itch; however, did you know they carry many viruses and today, the scary Zika vir us? The Zika virus has been all over the news, so, it is very important to know what it is and where it comes from. September is still a hot month in Tennessee, so we need to educate ourselves about this new virus that has made it into the United States. I asked myself, “Why is it called the Zika virus?” That lead me into a great deal of research and investigation as to where it came from. As one thing lead to another, you will discover why is it called “Zika” and from what country it actually originated. Learn a little bit about Yap and its people which is part of the Federated States of Micronesia as well as the part the Rhesus monkey played. You will find out how all of these relate to the Zika virus! In addition...Find out how to Repurpose Old Tires... and much MORE!

The United States has had the same type of government for more than 200 years. It’s called a “representative democracy.” Among the nations of the world, it is

to last so long. Most governments are based on a written set of principles,

sometimes called a “constitution” or a “charter.” When citizens directly participate by voting, the government is called a “democracy.”
