“Part Four”

Internationally acclaimed actor Mark Rylance and Emmy-winner Damian Lewis (“Homeland”) star as Thomas Cromwell and King Henry VIII in this adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize-winning novels, which chart the meteoric rise of Cromwell in the Tudor court — from blacksmith’s son to Henry VIII’s closest advisor. In episode four, Anne (Claire Foy) gives birth to a baby girl, failing to produce Henry’s longed-for male heir.

Most of us in the Great Lakes states live within a short drive to one of the Great Lakes and usually within walking distance to a nearby stream, river or inland lake. Our water is abundant, cleaner than it was years ago but not as pure as it could be. Wherever we are in the Great Lakes region, the emerging issue of trace amounts of pharmaceutical compounds showing up in our surface, ground water and municipal water systems affects us. The Great Lakes Clean Water Organization collects and properly disposes of unwanted/unused drugs in a safe and approved manner to help keep our water clean. Yellow Jug Old Drugs containers and contents are picked up at pharmacies and are then transported to a Waste-to-Energy facility for secure and assured destruction.
