Acadia National Park News:
Local artist displaying signature landscapes at Community Music School
Painter Barbara J. Zucker's work consists of glowing reds and oranges, brilliant splashes of yellows and greens, and bold blues. She accentuates her signature landscapes with divisive outlines separating shapes, yet binds them using light and shadow. Her palette is the rainbow, her subject, nature, and her goal is to harmonize them.

Geoscience exhibit displays 'Trail of Time'
Spectacular in its depth and breadth of beauty and unequaled in inspirational power, the Grand Canyon is a natural masterpiece. It took a lengthy 6 million years to carve the world-renowned steep-sided chasm but with its one-in-a-million views that amount of time seems almost appropriate - it's the paradox embedded within the canyon that is the real surprise. Often unnoticed by the millions of visitors each year, the age of the canyon itself pales in comparison to the age of the rocks within it. Acting upon the canyon's potential for public geoscience education, scientists coordinated the construction of the world's largest geoscience interpretative exhibit titled the Trail of Time.

Yellowstone National Park News:
Wyoming's Majestic Yellowstone National Park
There is a reason why in 1871 President Ulysses S. Grant chose Yellowstone to become the nation’s first National Park. All you have to do is breathe deeply the clean air and look around at the wide array of wonders to understand why he wanted to preserve this special place. Almost than 140 years later, people are still adhering to his admonishment that it be "dedicated and set apart as a public park or pleasuring ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people."

Culture: Bobby Jindal - Science Fail (Editorial - Note, I almost did not publish this one due to its obviously partisan nature, but decided to because of the content about Yellowstone. Let it not be said that I don't publish it all).
Bobby Jindal, the GOP governor of Louisiana delivered the Republican response for Obama’s Joint Session of Congress speech. You know it didn’t go well when Fox talking heads calls it lackluster. You are certain it sucked bad when folks over at Little Green Footballs, Free Republic and Red State think he made “Palin look smart,” “guarantees 8 years of Obama” and “anti-science.”
