    Calvin Frost || May 20, 2016
    In my last column I wrote about the opportunities to convert to “green energy,” the demise of the coal industry, and the explosion of the use of wood pellets as feedstock in commercial boilers. I seem to have struck a chord, as I’ve…

    Don’t be a passenger. Find something, it doesn’t make any difference what, and just get involved. Make a difference even if attitudes and behaviors of others overwhelm your idea or your focus. Don’t be a passenger. I was struck by t…

  • Another monster

    I didn’t get invited to The Wall Street Journal’s ECO:nomics Conference in Santa Barbara, CA, USA in March and I can’t figure out why. I’m the only voice of reason in the ongoing debate on “Emissons vs. Efficiency”…

  • Keep the change

    Calvin Frost || October 10, 2014
    Thursday at Labelexpo was a bit slower than Tuesday and Wednesday. It gave me a chance to walk the show and look for change, change that would affect our industry and make an impact. While Tuesday and Wednesday were exhilarating, it was a grueling 48…

    Calvin Frost || October 14, 2013
    The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (in Old English, The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere) by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, is the story of a sailor who has returned from a long sea voyage.  The Mariner stops a man who is on his way to a wedding and begins t…

    I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the items that I come across during my readings. Beach reading? Not quite, but I call this “summer” column a potpourri of information. I’ll return to my normal messages and ruminat…
