The below-zero temps and double-digit-below-zero wind chills of February can make the annual Winter Bike Week a hard sell some years.

But this year?  As we head into the second year of social distance and Covid precautions?  Plenty of folks are already taking to the trails on their fat tire bikes - now the trick is reminding them to take advantage of the nice temps (before Saturday, that is) and walk or bike to work or maybe just to run an errand or two.

The Feminist Action Collective was formed the day after the election in 2016.

Just over a year later, over 1700 strong, the mood has changed from one of trauma post-election to one of celebration.

And as people gathered last weekend for the Twin Ports Women's March, that celebratory feeling could be traced back to "resist" ("policies that discount our shared humanity and try to silence many community voices," says FACilitator Andrea Crouse) and "persist" (to move forward with many diverse voices for the common good").

Green space is a term you hear bandied about when someone is talking about reintroducing elements of nature into an environment.
