Serving Only Pure Wind Power From Texas
Most wind power companies are owned by big energy corporations that have holdings in coal and natural gas, but Breeze Energy is owned by Walter Hornaday and John Spicer, who are committed to providing 100 percent clean, green Texas wind energy at an affordable price.
When he was studying for his degree in engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, Hornaday told his professor that he wanted to write his master’s thesis on wind power. He was promptly told to quit working on “sugary, tree-hugging ideas” and get serious about his career.
A background in mechanical engineering and an MBA from Texas A&M led Spicer to an origination and business development position at a major traditional energy corporation. Purchasing wind energy for the company made him realize there must be a better way.
Breeze Energy has a strong and growing green education program, supporting and serving on boards of nonprofits such as Ground Works, providing scholarships and grants to Texas students and enrichment programs to their schools. Breeze is the only power company that provides solely wind-generated energy.

Earth Kind Services Enables Organic Lawns and Gardens
Earth Kind Services
Earth Kind Services, in Denton, Texas, wants to bring homeowners an organic solution for struggling landscapes. Top dressing with organic compost adds microbes to the soil, which release nutrients to the lawn and shrubs and are essential to plant vitality. The soil is usually of poor quality in North Texas, where builders have removed the topsoil or compacted it during construction. Adding organic matter is the best thing to do for depleted, compacted soils, bringing the soil back to life.
“I wanted to start a local service business that would bring a great organic alternative for landscapes,” explains owner Beau Popes. “I have over 25 years in landscape management, and for years I owned and operated a lawn fertilizing and shrub/tree care company.” Earth Kind uses a specialized spreader that allows for topdressing lawns more effectively than just by wheelbarrow and rake.
Beau notes, “Many people want to feel good about what they put on their lawns that their kids and pets play on. Anyone that wants to have a more drought-tolerant, pest- and disease-resistant lawn would enjoy our service. It’s a great value, since we deliver, spread and clean up, too.” Earth Kind Services also delivers and installs mulch. their newest service is providing lawn leveling with a soil/compost mix. Healthy soil grows healthy plants.

Used by a trained thermographer, RT can reveal where disease may be obscured and reports on all the internal organs, glands, lymph system, breasts and teeth in detail.
Philosophy of healing: Unlike with mammography, there is no pain, compression or radiation of the breasts.
