So, are the police still there, TBC? And any idea why?

The whole thing started with what looked like a routine traffic stop, but the officer immediatly walked the driver back to the squad car and handcuffed him. A few minutes later another squad showed up. What I didn't immediatly see was that a female passenger had apperently baild and was hding behind a neighbor's house. She tried to nonchalantly walk away out of view of the police, but was ratted out by another neighbor.
In all there were 5 or 6 squad cars involved. They stuck around for a couple of hours. I still don't know what it was all about.

I was lucky enough to spend a day with the late Gaylord Nelson. I was the President of my High School Recycling Club. Back then, they allowed cans of sugary, carbonated, caffeinated beverages to be sold in school that everyone simply threw in the trash. A teacher nominated me to be his guest during an environmental symposium at UWM (same teacher bestowed a scholarship upon me, funded by the aluminum can money). He was a very serious individual who was intimidatingly intelligent.

I guess this is my long-winded way of saying," Yes Mrs. SL, I know that symbol."

It is Theta, right wink

Yes, it is, BBG. Great memory for you to have from the founder of Earth Day.

The first Earth Day was when I was a senior in high school, and being on the student council, we organized an Earth Day activity for our school. We had a nice campus with lots of trees along the main road in town, so different classes went to different parts of the grounds to pick up trash. Kind of like an old-time CITO. The groups that got the fence lines along the parking lot and by the sides of the building hit the mother lodes in trash.

Everyone in that era was really into that eco, peace, love thing after Woodstock right before our senior year started. Halfway through the second semester the dress code at our school was relaxed, and girls could wear pants, a great improvement over miniskirts, IMO. The first draft lottery was also during our senior year, although our class wasn't affected by that one, but many had older brothers who were.

Kent State was a month before our graduation. That brought everything home to us. Many of us were headed off to college campuses in a few months, and there was rioting at many universities. Some closed down without having final exams or commencement exercises.

Memorable times... and it wasn't all groovy, man.

The first Earth Day I was a sophomore in high school and we had this really cool student teacher who influenced a lot of what happened that year....there was a sit-in strike earlier that year, thanks to him!

Anyway, we had a HUGE day organized by the brand new Ecology Club (yes, I was a member) with a wide variety of activities. Everyone in the school had to choose something. A day off class for most, but some of us planned lessons to teach at the various elementary schools, and I was with a friend teaching at my own grade school that day. We were wearing fashionable maxi skirts created from old blue jeans. I'm just a couple years younger than Mrs. S.

I certainly can't credit that first Earth Day with shaping so much of my life philosophy, which stands today years later, but it had to have been part of that.

Lucky for you BBG. It's interesting that so many pioneer ecologists are tied to Wisconsin. I wonder what their influences might have been......
