A: Well, since it is your neighbor’s tree, I don’t think you can cut it down. This is a common problem with maples, elms, cottonwoods and other trees that have seeds that are easily carried by the wind......

I don't remember what kind of response I got since it wasn't a big article.. it was published in the local paper

For some reason, I did so good on that article I decided to submit it to the newspaper and that's what with they came up with.

What class was this for, was it a business class?

Also when you submitted it to the paper, did you do anything special or simply send it in?

Justin that is great! You were able to utilize a business connection you had and you got your article published! That's awesome!

Have you thought about writing another article?

Also, are you going to add this article to your website under a news section?
