NEW: The US Supreme Court is taking up challenges to that pro-life Texas law that has virtually ended abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.  The Texas Heartbeat Act made law in September, has reportedly led to an 80% reduction in abortions in Texas – the nation’s second-largest state. *The justices will hear a separate challenge to Mississippi’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks. Those arguments are set for Dec. 1.

Experts stress: Don’t Rake Those Leaves.

Save time and help your lawn by mulching leaves.

Seriously. A study from Michigan State University shows that you can forget about raking, blowing, and bagging leaves. Leaf mulching will save you work, improve your soil, and add nutrients. It also saves you money. Mulching fall leaves simply recycles a natural resource, giving you richer soil for free.
