This is the first episode of 2022, and I know that many of you have already broken at least one resolution if you are even still making those. But I have a suggestion for one that is EASY to do, and will make a big difference in the daily lives of all of us here in Holly Springs. I want you to stop leaving your car idling when you’re waiting in car lines. That’s it.
Now this idea isn’t mine, it’s the aim of a group here in town called Clean Air Holly Springs. I spoke to their co-founders Rachel Woods and Kristina Natt och Dag. They’re focused on helping us get more air quality days in the “green” category and fewer in the “yellow” and “red” classifications.
