Do you get tired of certain people saying “Drain the swamp!” at every opportunity? Christine Hatch, author of the November 16 Earth Matters, goes beyond that - she considers it a gross insult to swamps, better known as wetlands. In the column, she explains just why we need these important ecosystems.

P.S. If you’re unable to access the Gazette page, wait until Monday or Tuesday and go to the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, where you’ll find the article on the home page.
