The fact that the well-being of the environment and politics so often are part of the same conversations might be frustrating for some. But it is true. Environmental laws often depend on the powers that be in Georgia, our nation and beyond.

If you are like many Georgia residents and holiday lovers in general, you might have lights hung on the house and around a tree or two. While the twinkling lights put a twinkle in your eye and joy in your heart, they might be leaving something a little less happy on your hands.
