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! …

Ater reading this [Summer 2012]
, 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. Ater reading the magazine articlesabout recycling, organic gardens, sustainability,energy innovation, military bases going green, greengrads, and solar ivy, let me provide a little anecdoteor you. I have returned to the U ater 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 proessor 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 let 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 theoreront 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 thoughtul,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, beore or ater theact [“Te Blitz Kids,” Spring 2012]. A great Utahteam—Misaka, [Arnie] Ferrin, [Vern] Gardner, etal—was playing a great Kentucky team in the NItournament 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.
