As I was contemplating this issue's 'Letter,' I was thinking about our Feature articles and how those industries being covered (metals and plastics) have actually become a part of my life without me realizing it.

While having a relaxed dinner the other night, my husband and I had another one of our little "dream sessions" - we chatted about some of the things we're looking forward to doing when we retire. One of the things at the top of my (long) list is travel...but with a twist! I would love to make a trip that centers around visiting different manufacturing facilities. To be honest, I really don't care what they're manufacturing; I just find it fascinating to watch all of those machines turning raw materials into finished products.

I have always been concerned about the future of our children, but have become even more so since I, myself, became a grandmother a year ago. I have a precious grandson, Connor, who is a healthy and energetic "little man" - my dream is for him to remain healthy and energetic. Fortunately, I'm not the only one who feels this way. I'm excited about the direction in which this great Nation is headed; we're headed for a much cleaner nation. Wouldn't our forefathers be proud? I am. And I'm excited about this particular issue - we consider it our "Clean Industries" issue.

At Trade & Industry Development, we have decided to take the positive approach to these challenges and we encourage everyone else to do the same. Sometimes we just need to step back for a moment and re-evaluate the situation. That's exactly what we strive to do with our editorials and we hope you'll look to us as your 'solutions provider.'

Another year has come and gone and we are both proud and excited to present our 4th anniversary edition of the Corporate Investment & Community Impact (CiCi) Awards....and from a personal standpoint, not a moment too soon. I'm exhausted - what a grueling task! After receiving over 1,000 submissions from across the country, we had the difficult mission of narrowing the list down to only 30 winners - 15 for Corporate Investment and 15 for Community Impact.

Well I never thought I'd see the day that the price of gas would drop so much...and so quickly. It wasn't long ago I paid $4.09 for a gallon of gas; last night I filled my tank for $1.59 per gallon. Amazing! Looks like the New Year is going to be great - I just hope we don't become complacent when it comes to finding alternative fuel sources.
