Last week's poll, This week's Inbox

WELL, ONE THING WE KNOW IS DEFINITELY NOT ENDANGERED – YOUR BRILLIANT THOUGHTS ABOUT LAST WEEK’S SHOW. LET’S TAKE A LOOK, FIRST, AT HOW YOU VOTED IN LAST WEEK’S EARTH-DAY THEMED POLL. WE ASKED: DO YOU RECYCLE? AND MOST OF YOU – 69% -- SAID YES! GREAT WORK!

JAMES FROM CHAGRIN FALLS INTERMEDIATE COMBINED LAST WEEK’S FOCUS ON EARTH DAY, WITH OUR CALL FOR POETRY THE WEEK BEFORE, WRITING:
I LOVE THE OCEAN, THE LAKE, THE SEA,
THE WATER IS ALL COOL AND SMOOTH AS CAN BE,
BUT YET ONE THING CAN TOP IT ALL,
LAKE ERIE IS MY FAVORITE OF ALL!

KALEI FROM PRESTON ELEMENTARY SEEMS TO AGREE ABOUT LAKE ERIE – WHEN WE ASKED WHAT PART OF THE WORLD YOU WOULD ADOPT, SHE WROTE: I WOULD ADOPT THE PARTS AROUND LAKE ERIE BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE IT LOOK BETTER BY CLEANING THE RIVER. I WAS AT MY GRANDPARENT'S HOUSE IN
ASHTABULA AND THE RIVER WAS POLLUTED! THAT MADE ME MAD!

AVA FROM NORTHFIELD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WOULD ALSO CLEAN UP HER PIECE OF THE PLANET, TELLING US: IF I COULD ADOPT A PIECE OF THE PLANET I WOULD ADOPT MIDWAY ISLAND. I WOULD ADOPT IT SO I COULD CLEAN UP ALL OF THE PLASTIC AND GARBAGE ON THE ISLAND. IF I DID ADOPT MIDWAY ISLAND, IT WOULD LOOK GOOD AGAIN. I WOULD SHARE THE ISLAND WITH MY FRIENDS, SO WE COULD CLEAN UP THE ISLAND REALLY QUICK.

MALLORY FROM PARKSIDE HAD AN OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD RESPONSE TO THE SAME QUESTION, WRITING: IF I COULD PICK MY PIECE OF EARTH I WOULD HAVE TO PICK AUSTRALIA. I LOVE AUSTRALIA, MATE. BUT, IF I COULD CHOOSE FROM THE WHOLE SOLAR SYSTEM, I WOULD PICK MARS. MARS IS ALSO AWESOME. I WANT TO BE THE FIRST ONE EVER TO STEP FOOT ON MARS.

MEANWHILE, MISS SABA'S THIRD GRADE CLASS FROM WILSON HILL ELEMENTARY, CHOSE TO ADOPT SOMEWHERE A BIT CLOSER TO HOME: IF WE COULD ADOPT ANY PIECE OF EARTH, WE AGREED THAT WE WOULD CHOOSE WILSON HILL ELEMENTARY. IT IS OUR SCHOOL AND WE LOVE IT SO MUCH! EVERYONE AT OUR SCHOOL IS NICE AND WE WANT TO OWN A PIECE OF EARTH WHERE EVERYONE IS KIND! FINALLY, WE KNOW THIS LOCATION AND ALL OF OUR FRIENDS ARE HERE!

THANKS MISS SABA’S CLASS! THANKS ALSO TO JAMES, KALEI, AVE, AND MALLORY. YOU ALL GAVE US – AND MOTHER EARTH -- A REASON TO SMILE THIS WEEK!
