Emily Vaill Pfaff urges citizens to develop sustainable practices so future generations don't suffer.
For over 15 years, Emily Vaill Pfaff of Bayside has been eating organic foods, recycling as much as possible, saving energy and engaging in many other key aspects of a "green" lifestyle. “Every bedroom has a recycling basket, and at every desk there is a recycling receptacle. The kitchen recycle can is twice the size of the garbage can,” Vaill Pfaff said. While most residents in Bayside use one rolling recycling dumpster, Vaill Pfaff’s family has two. Vaill Pfaff also has strict rules on water usage at home and showers must be kept to a 10-minute maximum.

Fire Chief Robert Whitaker was unable to pinpoint a particular reason, but 2012 should have more building fires than any year in recent history.
Building fires in the North Shore Fire Department region are up dramatically from last year and are on pace to be the highest total in years. Fire officials haven't been able to pinpoint a common cause. They also say the building fires are not clustered in any one geographic area among their seven communities. "Nationally, some communities are seeing a rise in people starting houses on fire intentionally because they can't afford to keep them anymore and are trying to get rid of the property, but we haven't seen that," Fire Chief Robert Whitaker said. The causes of the building fires are "all mixed up," Whitaker said. "Lightning strikes, and so on." Meanwhile, medical calls are down, and the department is still on pace to handle roughly …
