When I learned about “Zoot Suiters” in seventh grade, there were immediate feelings and responses i had towards it. While it wasn’t really that important in the mind of a seventh grader, I remember thing that the movement, as a whole, was pretty dumb. It sounded like youths who were protesting the war in exactly […]

We never fucking learn. This entire damned country, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, has always been an escape valve for the social problems of badly misgoverned societies, either at home or abroad. This has been the case since early colonial days, when early modern Europe was encouraged to dispatch its wretched refuse and its […]

Joe Badon knows a thing or two about working on a tight budget. The New Orleans native blindsided the indie film community last year with the release of his art-house, surrealist horror flick The God Inside My Ear. Outside of weird absurdity of the film’s plot and visuals, the project made headlines for being so […]

The other people watched me go with a mixture of shock and awe. They were more than willing to wait the rain out, and as I reflect on this day, I don’t know why I was so unwilling. I was determined to get home for some reason. There was probably some food for me there that I was looking forward to gorging myself on. That’s really the most reasonable conclusion. So I stuck my poor little suede boots outside of the protection of the Palacio and nearly gasped as the weight of the water crushed me.

What some may not know is that Wisconsin had an influential role in the development of Earth Day. Here’s how things unfolded decades ago. Wisconsin State Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day in 1970. He […]

PACIFIC GROVE – A retiree at a senior facility has taken her life-long experience and interest in the environment and given the community where she lives an Earth Day focused on providing information about how they can all reduce their environmental footprint. “I have many hats here, and one of them is called the ‘Trash Lady’,” said Nancy Frost, a 76-year-old resident of Canterbury Woods in P.G. Frost, a native of California, retired from the Environmental Protection Agency in 1994 and moved to the retirement community in P.G. five years ago. Frost said when she first arrived, she noted there was much confusion about recycling partly due to the lack of an educational program for residents. Her eye for environmental concerns made her a force behind transforming how the senior community in which she lives practices reducing, reusing and recycling materials. Frost helps provide information to assist residents in knowing which items are recyclable and which are not. “Since I’ve been here, we are under the third, going on fourth reiteration of what can be recycled because of what’s going on worldwide,” said Frost. The former EPA employee explained that part of the change has come with different companies providing trash service who come with their own rules of what they will pick up and where they will take it. Besides the trash companies, the landfills or recycling centers have their own set of guidelines for what will be accepted. And now another challenge is the countries that used to take our trash and recyclables, have stopped. Earth Day gives Frost a chance to provide more focused information for the community with a display that is placed in Canterbury Woods’ main hall for three days, giving people information and updates on what can be put in recycling as well as other steps they can take to reduce their environmental footprint, according to Laura Darling, Covia spokesperson. Covia is the company which owns Canterbury Woods. “… Through her efforts, Canterbury Woods has become the senior community that does more recycling than any other” communities in the area, said Darling. Frost said her goal is to get folks to reduce waste and to also get things that can be reused and recycled. “With 170 residents and about an equal number of staff, if we make a slight change, it’s a big change,” said Frost. Frost was one of the first employees of the Environmental Protection Agency when it was established in 1970 and whose mission is to protect human and environmental health. Frost was born and raised in the Oakland area and spent summers as a youth in Pescadero “among the redwoods.” “Our family were campers. We went to many parks and being outdoors has always been a part of my life,” said Frost. She developed an interest in the environment from those experiences and it became part of her career. “I ended up at the EPA literally by luck,” said Frost. She worked first in the United States Department of Agriculture before the federal government took aspects of nine different agencies and transformed them into the EPA the same year as the first Earth Day. “There were 900 of us across the country,” said Frost. Spending most of her 30-year-career working for the EPA, she went from duties in the lab, to the field, then working with states to develop programs, and ultimately managing people within the agency. Frost’s work covered California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, and Indian and Pacific Island territories, where the agency helped to develop and expand programs in regulating pesticides. Now retired for more than 25 years, Frost spent much of that time doing volunteer work with California State Parks in the Pescadero area before settling on the Monterey Peninsula. Through her advocacy and annual displays, Frost educates and brings an awareness to the issues of waste and recycling in her community. “Earth Day is one day a year when we can remind everybody that really every day is Earth Day,” said Frost.
