    Small safe, economic reactors

    offer possible alternative

    An interesting recent technological improvement in the production of electricity using small fully self-contained, safe, reliable, and relatively inexpensive midget nuclear reactors are being developed and are very close to becoming the first generation of their type. Several companies are striving to become the first to get on the market with these remarkable devices but it appears that right now Japan has the early lead in their development with China a close second.

    Many supporters made

    Monte Carlo a success

  • Cracker Days: a cure for cabin fever

    It is one of our area’s premiere winter events and an easy one to support because it is just so much fun.

    The annual Cracker Days celebration, a unique two-day exhibition on our area’s past will be held this weekend at Rainbow Springs State Park.

    It is an event that gets better each year and involves the Friends of Rainbow Springs State Park, park volunteers, park staff, authors, historians, vendors and musicians.

    As with any event at Rainbow Springs State Park, the natural setting alone is worth a visit anytime, as is the park gift shop.
