If you drive by the corner of S. 14th and Sayles this week, you most likely have noticed the beautiful, green lawn between the road and McMurry University campus buildings has been populated by camping tents. You may also notice several “panhandlers” on that street corner, who look suspiciously like college students. This is all a part of McMurry University students acting locally in order to raise awareness for a global situation.
I don’t usually pay close attention to what other guys are wearing, but the other day I noticed my coworker, Chaz, was wearing a classic pair of shoes: checkered Vans. You may remember it as the shoe that Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn) used to thump himself in the head in the 1982 classic movie “Fast Times At Ridgemont High”.
Now, 30 years later, Chaz is sporting them on Casual Friday at the office.
The Abilene Zoo will be holding an Earth Day celebration Saturday. In addition to the normal zoo activities(looking at, feeding and petting animals), visitors will be treated to fun and informative activities, aimed at raising awareness of animal conservation efforts.
