Mississippi River Mayors Commit To Reducing Plastic Waste.........

 

Members of the Mississippi River and Cities Initiative, which is a group of Mississippi River mayors from Minnesota to Louisiana, is committing to reducing plastic waste by 20 percent within the next two years.

 

Plastics are considered to be a persistent pollutant, meaning that they typically don't break down.  Instead, plastics turn into what is best described as a toxic confetti that accumulates in the food chain.

 

State lawmakers met with Mississippi River town mayors to pledge their commitment to reduce plastic waste in the Mississippi River Valley.  This announcement was made during the 7th annual meeting of the MRCTI organization........

River History....

22 September 1842 in River History


Abraham Lincoln and James Shields, then State Auditor of Illinois, rowed out to an island in the Mississippi River across from Alton, IL. to duel with broadswords.

The duel was over Lincoln's severe criticism of Shields' proclamation that ordered tax collectors at that time to accept only gold and silver for payment of taxes and school debts. .

While the parties set up the dueling area, the principal seconds tried to resolve the issue peacefully. To demonstrate his obvious physical advantage, Lincoln then reached up and lopped off a high willow branch. After discussion the two seconds finally agreed that a note in which Lincoln admitted authorship of the letter and asserted that he "had no intention of injuring your (Shields) personal or private character or standing as a man or gentleman" would satisfy the honor of both them.

The duel never took place.

Today the Lincoln Shields Recreation Area is located on the Mississippi River in West Alton, Mo directly across the Mississippi River Alton, IL

Lake Of The Ozarks

The Fall Shoreline Cleanup Has Begun........

 

Amren Missouri and Adopt-The-Shoreline had announced that the 27th annual fall volunteer shoreline cleanup has begun.  Every year, ATS organizes volunteers to clean up over 500 miles of shoreline around the Lake of the Ozarks.

 

Adopt-The-Shoreline coordinator Bryan Vance says that during the fall, water levels are typically higher, which allows boats to access areas that were not accessible during the spring cleanup.

 

Vance adds that the fall cleanups offer the additional benefit of seeing the incredible fall foliage that lines the Lake of the Ozarks' shoreline........
