Jim Parks is most widely known as the veteran host of HGTV's remodeling show, "New Spaces," which has been enjoyed by television audiences for over nine years.  Today's Green Minute was born as Jim was doing research for a magazine series. He discovered the wealth of innovation being generated in the green world and set out to write a weekly newspaper column. An audio podcast version soon followed, and now video.  One of the things The Lansing Star is proud of is that we are a green, electronic newspaper.  You don't even have to recycle the Star.  This feature offers more on how to make your world greener.  Every few weeks a new episode will be added so check back often.

Pet of the Week

by Rochelle Davis

PMissy Bonjour, mes amis! I am Missy, and I am known to act like a queen. It seems to me the problem in my previous home was that I was not sufficiently appreciated for the magnificent feline I am - but that's neither here nor there. No, it WAS there! My human family consisted of a husband and wife and their son; I thought the guys were just dandy, but somewhat less the FEMALE! I very much appreciate being petted, not always to be picked up. I'm not nervous around men, but I've never lived with young children or babies. I've lived with other cats and a respectful dog, in case you were wondering, though the other female cat wasn't my favorite pal. So, are you the ruler of my next kingdom?
