It started at the beginning of the school year when the class was talking about water conservation and evolved into a major recycling effort that has netted the class almost $200. Newhard, who lives on the mainland and commutes to work, walks to the afternoon boat with a dolly, fully loaded with boxes of empty plastic bottles which she takes to a recycling center near her home to col- lect there redemption value. The recycling effort has become so big that Catalina Flying Boats has offered to assist in getting the empty water bottles to the mainland. Students help after school by smashing the bottles and boxing them up for the trip to a mainland recycling facility= Courtesy photo Founded in 1913 by Ernest Windle Publlsllmr Vince Bodiford General Manager Jon Remy Interim Editor Travis Perkins Office Assistant Kristy Throndson Graphic Designer Christy Smith Multimlla Dior France Te THURSDAY GATHERING 6:30PM 635 CRESCENT AVENUE .
