    Our credit and thanks to CNN for posting these photos and story on the internet.

    Sludge as Fertilizer on Crop Lands May be Harmful to Health! What Are We Feeding Our Families?

    Years ago when I was a banker and running a trust department in Swisher County, Texas, we had cattle feed lots as well as a need to dispose of sewer sludge.

    BEDBUG EPIDEMIC NATIONWIDE

    WHAT'S BUGGING YOU? If you are taking your family on a summer vacation, here's another thing to watch for -- bedbugs. Check your beds, sheets and furniture for bedbugs when you check into a room, and look carefully. They are tiny, have a red color, and baby bedbugs can look like just a beige piece of dirt.

It is located in the Sandia Mountains near Albuquerque, New Mexico...

    Take a vacation to the Caribbean, and you may see this, a five-mile-wide floating sea of plastic bottles, garbage and plastic. "How did it get there?"

    In Utah, the Bear's Ears National Monument is about to experience the largest "shrinkage" of national land under federal protection in history.
