ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I'm just uploading, when time, favorites of what seems useful, solid, and possibly great as I run through past lessons and materials. I'm currently working to put legislation before MA state voters for environmental health through Last Tree Laws, which accepts donations for the ballot measure. Free materials may be available there as posted. I've a new website, Beatty.fyi, on which I'll eventually post more materials.
