Schaller conducts his own curbside recycling ‘analysis’

PART 2

Program efficiency is meaningless unless taken in context of costs, as many communities have learned. Section 5.2 is titled ‘Benefits of curbside programs’ yet there is no section or mention in the report of drawbacks or historical unintended consequences.

It is a report I would expect of a used car or solar...

Promoting the Dine Holistic view of the world: Humane education. Preventing Bullying and Animal Neglect to Build a Kinder Community

E-mail Print PDF
Since time immemorial, the Navajo have respected, honored and protected the four sacred elements of life: air; light/fire; water and earth/pollen.  The Diné have a duty and sacred obligation to respect, preserve and protect all that was provided them; and they are designated as stewards for their animal relatives.

Bullying has been making regular headlines, been blamed for suicides, and is of great concern to schools today.  Local schools have regulations prohibiting bullying and have signs designating “Bullying-Free Zones”.  Another problem is the epidemic of abandoned and starving cats and dogs wandering the streets of Gallup, and surrounding communities.  Dead dogs and cats...

Parent unhappy with principal switcheroo

To the Gallup McKinley School Board:

It has come to our attention that you have recently made and are making huge changes in staffing some of the schools. We realize that some of these changes may be necessary or for the good of the schools, however we are unable to see the benefits of changes being made at and affecting Roosevelt Elementary.

As parents and grandparents of students at Roosevelt Elementary we are disappointed and very upset with some of the changes you are making. We are a tiny school compared to most in the district and we realize that Roosevelt Elementary will eventually be dissolved in another few years but it is a very family oriented school and we would like to keep...

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re feeling full of bright ideas these days. Maybe you want to interview someone famous, like Patrick Moraz, the keyboardist for the Moody Blues. Yes, the iconic 70s band with the curly-haired keyboardist, and dreamy rock ballads. Madame G, hee hee (blush) is showing her age. But, you need to go in a unique direction this week.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

TMI = Too Much Information. You’re usually the strong one, bullish and full of pride. Nothing bothers you, not even your Uncle Martin flashing his stained dentures to scare the kids. But, lately you’re a tad sensitive to people telling you too much information. You don’t want to know that your friend...

Schaller conducts his own curbside recycling ‘analysis’

E-mail Print PDF
I have been following the numerous city meetings on curbside recycling since last summer, asking questions, taking notes, following up with extensive research and even providing a condensed feasibility study from previous articles I have written in local publications.

I recently discovered the Sustainable Gallup Board already reached a curbside decision several months ago. Since neither the city council nor SGB will grant me twenty minutes speaking time, I am presenting my comprehensive analysis in writing.

I was formerly a Sierra Club hippie on a spiritual quest to save the planet in the 1970s and 1980s. In 1975 I studied wind energy at EWSC. In 1985 I instructed GHS sophomores on the...
