THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE GREEN
 As a proud 1971 U graduate who participated inthe rst Earth Day celebration/protest in 1970, I wasthrilled to see a whole issue dedicated to how the U is working on sustainability. Keep up the good work!

 Ater reading this [Summer 2012]
Continuum
, Ihave to say that I am somewhat disappointed in how the U is relentless in shoving down people’s throatsthis green initiative that the University seems tobe engaged in. Ater reading the magazine articlesabout recycling, organic gardens, sustainability,energy innovation, military bases going green, greengrads, and solar ivy, let me provide a little anecdoteor you. I have returned to the U ater an almost year-long hiatus to pursue my MPA. I am taking a politicsclass in Milton Bennion Hall, Room 105, and sincethe summer semester started, the heater has beenon in that classroom. Not intermittently on and of,but on and blasting hot. … I personally made threecalls to acilities and maintenance, and last week my proessor called, and it seems to be nally of. AsI look around the campus with all those brand new buildings built and being built, it is a shame thatexisting ones get let behind in maintenance…

Keep up the good environmental ethic,contrary to the politicians o Utah. It is good toknow o the many areas [where] the U is at theoreront in environmental matters. I try to keepin touch with the meteorology department where Igraduated in 1958.

AN INSPIRING PROFESSOR
Fred Montague [“aking the Long View,Summer 2012] was one o the most thoughtul,motivational (in a serene way) instructors I havebeen privileged to take several classes rom. I alsotoiled in the garden by the Sill Center or a semester,contributed horse manure or several years, andloved the experience. I appreciate this man and what he is about.

A GAME REMEMBERED
I am an intern alumnus, ’45-’46, but a Columbiagraduate. Way back when, I saw [Wat] Misakamake a play I have never seen, beore or ater theact [“Te Blitz Kids,” Spring 2012]. A great Utahteam—Misaka, [Arnie] Ferrin, [Vern] Gardner, etal—was playing a great Kentucky team in the NItournament at Madison Square Garden. RalphBeard was guarding Misaka when Misaka madea bounce pass between Beard’s legs into the post,likely Gardner. It was an amazing pass, and I’venever seen it duplicated.
