There's a big difference between taking someone's word on the uses of a Pop up Canopy and checking it out for yourself. We can tell you about it all day long, but until you experience an outdoor afternoon under the convenient, reliable shelter these tents provide you may not have the complete picture. Once you put a single get-together in the capable hands of a Pop up Canopy of your choosing, though, you can't help but be convinced. See http://www.ecanopy.com/pop-up-canopies.html for product details.

Skatepark at Tierra Dedicated
Students continue raising funds to provide park equipment
Mayor Don Wesely, Parks and Recreation Department officials and Southeast High School students today dedicated the city�s new skatepark at Tierra Park, 27th Street and Tierra Drive. The students, who helped fund, design and build the new skatepark, raised over $30,000 to help complete Phase I of the Tierra Skatepark Project.
"This celebration is the manifestation of a vision shared by our community and our young people," said Mayor Wesely. "These students took on this skatepark challenge with a passion, and today you see their dream turned into reality. I�m very impressed and proud of the efforts these students have displayed."
The city funded the new skatepark�s 60-foot by 100-foot concrete base, which cost about $15,000. The Phase I modular equipment, which cost about $26,000, was funded through the students� campaign. The students are continuing their campaign to raise an additional $50,000 for the purchase of park equipment. The concrete base will be expanded to 80-feet by 100-feet when fund-raising efforts allow for the addition to be constructed. A 100-foot long, 10-foot high chain-link divider fence is in place to provide a safe separation between the skatepark and an adjacent soccer field.
This is the city�s second skatepark. The first, at Peter Pan Park, 3250 "X" Street, was dedicated in December 2001. Southeast High students helped build the Peter Pan Park facility, and the project was funded through the Neighborhood Self-Help Improvement Program, donations and city funds.
"Once again I�m inspired by the youth of our community," said Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson. "I continue to be impressed by their ambition and dedication. We are always willing to partner with such outstanding volunteers."
"We really wanted to create a good place for us and our friends to skate, a place where we could all be comfortable," said Southeast High student Colby Collura. "We feel that this open location is perfect for us, and we hope that the park neighbors feel the same. Best of all, we know that this park will be enjoyed way beyond our years here and that the little guys just learning to skate will look at what we�ve done and see that they can continue our efforts, because it can be done."
The skatepark dedication and ribbon-cutting are part of a day-long celebration at Tierra Park. Among the activities are skating demonstrations conducted by a team from Precision Skateboards, an open skating session with music provided by KISS-FM, live music from 4 to 9 p.m. as well as various games and activities, provided by Tobacco Free Nebraska. Sponsors for today�s Tierra Park Skatepark Dedication are Lincoln Southeast High School, Precision Skateboards, Tobacco Free Nebraska, the Lincoln Council on Alcoholism and Drugs, Inc. and the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department.

Recycling turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources. Collecting used bottles, cans, and newspapers and taking them to the curb or to a collection facility is just the first in a series of steps that generates a host of financial, environmental, and social returns. Some of these benefits accrue locally as well as globally.
Benefits of Recycling
• Recycling protects and expands U.S. manufacturing jobs and increases U.S. competitiveness.
• Recycling reduces the need for landfilling and incineration.
• Recycling prevents pollution caused by the manufacturing of products from virgin materials.
• Recycling saves energy.
• Recycling decreases emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change.
• Recycling conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals.
• Recycling helps sustain the environment for future generations.
Steps to Recycling a Product
Recycling includes collecting recyclable materials that would otherwise be considered waste, sorting and processing recyclables into raw materials such as fibers, manufacturing raw materials into new products, and purchasing recycled products.
Collecting and processing secondary materials, manufacturing recycled-content products, and then buying recycled products creates a circle or loop that ensures the overall success and value of recycling.
Step 1. Collection and Processing
Collecting recyclables varies from community to community, but there are four primary methods: curbside, drop-off centers, buy-back centers, and deposit/refund programs.
Regardless of the method used to collect the recyclables, the next leg of their journey is usually the same. Recyclables are sent to a materials recovery facility to be sorted and prepared into marketable commodities for manufacturing. Recyclables are bought and sold just like any other commodity, and prices for the materials change and fluctuate with the market.
Step 2. Manufacturing
Once cleaned and separated, the recyclables are ready to undergo the second part of the recycling loop. More and more of today's products are being manufactured with total or partial recycled content. Common household items that contain recycled materials include newspapers and paper towels; aluminum, plastic, and glass soft drink containers; steel cans; and plastic laundry detergent bottles. Recycled materials also are used in innovative applications such as recovered glass in roadway asphalt (glassphalt) or recovered plastic in carpeting, park benches, and pedestrian bridges.
Step 3. Purchasing Recycled Products
Purchasing recycled products completes the recycling loop. By "buying recycled," governments, as well as businesses and individual consumers, each play an important role in making the recycling process a success. As consumers demand more environmentally sound products, manufacturers will continue to meet that demand by producing high-quality recycled products.
