Grow Green

MSU News - September 6, 2017 - 1:53pm
Well, summer is over. Labor Day has officially come and gone, classes have begun in earnest, Spartan Stadium hosted its first game (Go Green!), the air is cooler and the leaves have started to change. And, I concede. I give in. I admit I lost. I lost the ever-exhausting battle of the lawn. I did my darndest, but this year, the weeds won. I thought I'd try the season without professional lawn care and go it alone. I mowed, I watered, I pulled weeds from their roots. And yet, I was easily overtaken by a variety of voraciously reproducing visitors from the wetlands my yard backs up to. Crazy weeds: 1, Lisa: 0. I also had my fair share of dry, brown areas, bumps from some sneaky moles and edging I just couldn't get right. But hey, my flowers looked great - well, until the fearless deer in the neighborhood wandered up to my front door and ate all my petunias and a fair number of leaves from my hostas. Oh, and I stopped weeding the front garden once some poison ivy showed up; so that got a little messy. I can do a lot of things, but apparently my thumb isn't as green as I thought it was. Oh well, there are a lot worse things that a few dandelions, so I simply shrugged and admitted defeat.

Lynne Goldstein: MSU Campus Archaeology, the future

MSU News - September 6, 2017 - 1:25pm
I created and direct the Michigan State University Campus Archaeology Program and, as of May 2018, I will be retiring from the university (although not from archaeology). The job of directing and administering MSU CAP will go to Stacey Camp, who has just arrived in East Lansing so that we can overlap for a year. MSU CAP is in very capable hands, and I am confident that the program will not only survive, but thrive.

MSU News - September 6, 2017 - 11:59am
When asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I've usually answered, "I have no idea." But that isn't necessarily true - A better answer is, "I have too many ideas - there are too many things I'm interested in to ever make a decision!"
