CALENDAR

 

Date: March 18 (Tuesday)

Event: Green Drinks

Time: 5 p.m.-7 p.m.

Location: Riverside Wine, 911 N. Mantua Street, Kent

Description: Probably not on the deck this month, but one never knows what climate change may have in store. Riverside's intoxicating promotions remain in effect, dollar-off draughts 4 p.m.-7 p.m., and Tuesday remains "no-corkage night," so plan to buy a bottle rather than a glass. Topics of discussion may include problems: pipelines, toxic wastes, climate change; and proposed solutions: on-site solar, wind, nonvehicle transportation; as well as relativistic discussions of the effects of imported versus locally produced beverages, and possible late planning for the Kent Environmental Council annual meeting February 10. Tuesday is "no-corkage night” at Riverside, so a bottle of wine may be purchased for on-premises consumption at the retail take-out price. Happy Hour, dollar-off draughts, is 4 p.m.-7 p.m., so come early. All are invited. No cover charge.

Date: April 28(Monday)

Event: KEC Spring Forum

Time: 7 p.m.

Location: Kent Presbyterian Church, 1456 E. Summit St., Kent

Description: Teresa Mills, a member of the staff for the Center for Health, Education and Justice, will speak about injection wells. The Center for Health, Education and Justice (CHEJ) was started by Lois Gibbs (founder and director of CHEJ). CHEJ now assists groups nationwide in dealing with chemical spills and pollution situations. Her talk will cover topics such as how injection wells are constructed, how long they may be expected to last, how they are tested, the requirements they are supposed to meet, who inspects them and how well are they regulated.  She will also tell why she and CHEJ petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to remove the Ohio Department of Natural Resources from being the agency primarily responsible for regulating injection wells. After her presentation, she will take questions from the audience.
