These painted rain barrels were auctioned in a silent auction at the Artists in Paradise Gallery on Big Pine Key.
Looking around my neighborhood recently, I see little changes that show me that instead of being part of the problem, some residents are choosing to be part of the solution.
For example, at the Winn-Dixie on Big Pine Key, I notice more lone male shoppers walk into the store with their stash of reusable bags. It really makes my heart swell.
