"Decatur. That's for sure. Commanded the Mediterranean squadron from 1815 to 1820 in the Brooklyn navy yard from 1824 to 1833. He was president of the board of navy commissioners from 1837 until his death in 1840 at the age of 67. So yeah, he saw a little bit more action, but he seemed like more of a desk guy, you know, a home. He didn't really make a lot of waves. No pun intended. When he was when he was commanding the Lake Ontario squadron, he was definitely no Oliver hazard Perry or Stephen Decatur. But solid job, you know, good solid career, nothing fantastic, but not bad either. He at least he didn't get in a duel, right? Yeah. I think a lot of the people who came out of this war, they were either hard chargers like Decatur, and they made their mark and kind of a more flashy way, but a lot of people came out of this war like Chauncey and Isaac hall, who even other ones who really, I mean, Henry Clay, they really molded what this country would become. They didn't, it's not exactly what they set up, but they really built the foundations that people in the Civil War and the reconstruction period built on to what we have today. Yeah, I mean, we need those people just as much as we need the swashbucklers, right? I mean, we've got to have bureaucrats. We've got to have people who set up procedures and policies and build up institutions. So I think their role was not as exciting to read about, but just as much important as your Decatur's and your Andrew Jackson's and your parries and people like that. All right, last one, listeners are saying, finally. Hopefully not. I'm just kidding. I hope I'm kidding. But one more naval guy, the hero of the Lake champlain, the battle of Lake champlain, and that is another unsung hero somebody you don't hear much about today. Thomas MacDonald, what happened to mcdonagh?

"My dad died around Christmas time, which was tough. I didn't know what to ask for because I already got what I wanted. So I'm in therapy. All right, thank you, I guess. No, I'm in therapy. I've really been talking to my therapist a lot about my mom. My mom passed away. And I know you're like, oh, dead mom, dead dad, what next little orphan tranny? We are talking about my mom a lot. Like, my mom was great. My therapist said, I should talk to my mom every day, which seems a little crazy. So I just talked to the mannequin in the attic, I dressed up in her clothes. But she was great. My mom was great. She was like this Martha Stewart type, you know? A convicted felon could cook. And now when I first came out to her as trans, it took her a while. She said she had to pray to God after I told her, which makes sense, because if you're a middle aged white woman and you don't like something, you talk to the manager. I had a little close to home. Hi, LA. No, I still try to please my mom. Like when she after she passed away, I thought, I'm going to do something nice. I decided I was going to spread her remains and let her favorite place. The town I grew up in. It's a town called Westport, New York. It's in the adirondack mountains. It's on Lake champlain. And don't clap, you're not from there. But it's beautiful. So I drive 6 hours and I started to spread a remain. Someone comes running out and says, stop, you can't do that. You can't do that. And I'm like, why not? He said, you have to cremate her first. So then I had to put her back in the garbage bag. So she's at her second favorite place. Behind an Arby's. That's why I'm late tonight. And. I had three brothers. It was weird with three brothers. Like, our parents were kind of cheap. So when they ran the bathwater, they did it once. And we all had to share one right after another, right? Oh, it's the worst. If you're the last one, it's like the Hudson River at low tide. And I'm in there, and I'm looking down one day, and I'm thinking this is disgusting. I'm 32 years old.

"My head of artillery. Yes yes a thousand times. Yes sir thank you. You'll never regret this. I got to tell my wife. She'll never believe. I'm working for the george washington. Oh by the way where all your cannons and stuff. Well they're just like you know three hundred miles away over mountains and rivers and valleys and forests at fort ticonderoga fort ticonderoga. Yeah i know can. Can you go get them. You're going to need them mr artillery. Sure yeah i'll just go get them. Yeah that'd be great. Thank you going to get. These canons was a completely ludicrous job. Most assumed it was a fool's errand. Henry knox just saw an opportunity to make a name for himself and thought he could figure it out so he said yes. I'll go get those cannons. Fort ticonderoga was recently in british hands. But it had been captured by american forces including benedict arnold. This was before he broke george washington's heart and became a traitor to the american cause in fort ticonderoga there were dozens of cannons and mortars the artillery that george washington needed so badly to chase the british out of boston and now they pretty much belonged to the americans but moving these huge iron and brass weapons many of which weighed over a ton. Each was such a hard job that no one wanted to do it or really could do it. For that matter ticonderoga is on lake champlain. Near the new york and vermont border. And let's just say wintertime can be pretty serious up there to add insult to injury. Knox would begin his journey from boston to ticonderoga on november sixteenth. He first went south to new york city and then headed two hundred and fifty or so miles over mountains frozen rivers and forest land to reach the fort along the way he hired men acquired horses and hired a few oxen. Once they arrived at the fort it took a tremendous amount of effort days of dangerous and exhausting work in the bleak. Windy cold to just to get the canons out of the fort and ready to move back to boston. All the while they wanted to maintain the greatest amount of secrecy so the british wouldn't know what they were up to now. It's hard to be quiet when you're moving hundreds of tons of heavy artillery with a train. Not just a manpower but actual horsepower not to mention when you're asking every capable man that you meet and trying to find as many horses as possible word is bound to get around that. Something's up the first part of the canons journey. Required sailing down part of the lake. In boats one of the boats immediately began taking on water. Probably because it was carrying way more weight than it was built for so the men bailed her out rebalanced the precious cargo among the other boats without losing a single cannon and headed off. They were soon met with snow which meant that. They could build sleds and the horses could pull the heavyweight along the way they'd blazed a wide trail cutting down trees to widen the path for the large train travelling on foot once while crossing a frozen river. The ice gave way underneath the weight of a particularly large cannon and down. It went but henry wasn't going to show up with one fewer field peace than he had promised washington so they spent a few days getting it up from the frigid river bottom. If you ask the men they probably would disagree on what was worse than that making it through the berkshire mountains with the dead weight. They were hauling or the mud they had to trudge through when the weather broke and the snow melted either way. He was miserable but they got the job done. By late january the artillery began to show up near boston. Henry knox had assembled a team and done impossible. Not bad for a young man who most recently had been a bookseller. One morning in march. The british army woke up to a surprise when they had gone to sleep the night before. Nothing was unusual. Nothing was amiss but when the sun shone the next morning their wide is saw from high point surrounding the city. All of henry knox's cannons which the american soldiers had labored overnight to put into place within days the british who had been hunkered down in boston for months unwilling to leave while they got the set sail leaving the city for a season and canada. Some people thought. Hey that's the end of the war maps. That were they right. They were worse than right. They were wrong the next summer the british would take new york and spend the next few years running washington ragged henry. Knox was there the whole time to a constant support to washington and the american revolution and he could always credit any future glory to the time that he said yes to the impossible and then made.

This new exhibit is called diving in pop culture and it runs through december two thousand and twenty one the exhibit showcases. The underwater world portrayed in advertising entertainment and mainstream culture. The museum says that there is something for everyone. They have the regulator that was used in star wars. I think i read somewhere that a been an old decor that was used for darth vader's heavy breathing. They also have stuff from jaws men of honor and of course see hunt. Yes it's still alive. This is not a virtual So you'll have to get down to i'll miranda before december thirty first to catch diving in pop culture. Pick or it didn't happen. That's the tagline used by light. I'm sure to have my acolyte. Olympus t g six rig when i head down on a couple of days well i just saw that. They are running a contest for people to design their new pick or it didn't happen shirt. The design winner will get five hundred dollars worth who i like year. That's pretty nice. I hope you also get a teacher now. The contest opened on may first and runs until june sixth. So he's not a lot of time. The designs must be underwater photos or have underwater theme. And you must incorporate pick or it didn't happen into the design. No other words are allowed. You cannot use the ike light logo or any other copyrighted material the entry form on the lake blog so you have to search for light contest to find the link. I wasn't able to get to directly from their main websites. Who just do a little bit of searching there so fire up your creative juices and enter the pick or it didn't happen. T shirt design contest from michael. Light is reef. Well this is very interesting. Hope reef is an initiative that is being sponsored by shiba. The cat food brand hope reef is in sulawesi indonesia and they are planning to restore one hundred eighty five thousand square meters of reef spells out hope and apparently you can spot the letters on google earth. The purpose beyond restoration is to drive awareness and show how positive change can happen in our lifetime. Hope was unveiled on may fifth. Two thousand twenty one but it actually started two years ago is using something called restare technology that incorporates centimeter wide steel stars that the corals can attach to hope reef has its own youtube channel and you can check out the short one minute and thirty eight second video called the film that grows coral. It's called the film that grows coral because all advertising revenues from the film support the hope reef. Just go out there and search hope brief. Take a look diving with a purpose. That's exactly what a team of divers started last week. According to an associated press article. That i read this team of five to ten. Divers started a massive six month effort to clean up lake. Tahoe out in california. Their plan is to cover seventy two miles of shoreline and their goal is to conduct three dives each week to a depth of about twenty five feet. The team will be running this dive schedule from now through november. The operation is being sponsored by a nonprofit called. Clean up the lake. It was founded by a guy named colin west who is a diver and a filmmaker. The ultimate cost of this endeavor is two hundred and fifty thousand dollars on that i dive. They pulled two hundred pounds of trash from lake tahoe and tagged twenty larger items for subsequent removal. It's amazing that people still use our lakes rivers and oceans as garbage dumps. Good luck to this team for making a difference and diving with a purpose in case you missed it. Psi pci the gurus scoop scuba cylinder inspection. Recently posted a short article on died news wire. They needed to dispel a couple of rumors. Flying around out there about scuba tanks. One was about old luxury tanks. But that's not what i want to talk about here. Apparently there is a really bad rumor going around that beginning in two thousand and twenty one. Steel cylinders are exempt from ota cleaning requirements. What how did that one start. That is just unsafe and dangerous.

"Everyone and welcome to another episode of the town hall as all move forward we have been stuck for like two and a half months now and it's really weird time in history but the town hall is staying dedicated to telling really important sustainability stories. And we're lucky. We get some really massive brands. This episode is one of those lucky ones. Today I'm actually joined by two guests. Jones enlisted were from National Wildlife Federation earlier in the year. Rubicon was named the official sustainability and tech partner for recycle mania of the competition under the management of the NWF but will get into all of that and enlists. Thank you both so much for being here today I've only done multiple jest episodes like once or twice so let's just establish a little bit of water for answering some of the questions. Honest truth besides my husband and my dog youtube or the only people. I've interacted with today so I'm a little over all of us to bumble words over each other so Liz let's start with you. Tell me a bit about your role at. Nwf A little bit about your professional time line and how you can got to where you are and then in that time line or in your story what do you think sparked passion for environmental sustainability in in Christie. You're on deck and I'd love to know the same free. We'll start with this. I am the director of Pre K. To twelve education for National Wildlife Federation. I have actually end with the fedaration for most of my career. I'm going into my twenty four th year and I really started off in a regional office and did a lot of regional education work and for the last eleven years have been focusing my efforts and the national level And really pushing forward the work that we do with schools and other informal education opportunities and community My background actually. My undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology and forestry and I started off as a wildlife biologist but Kinda fun interesting fact is I found. I had a lot more fun topping and and I feel like I made a bigger impact talking with people within the community that I was doing my research in collecting data. You know like the nighttime Barstool chat where we were talking about. Grizzly Bear Habitat. And what it meant to you know Maintain and keep that habitat healthy and the ways people get involved so that that's somewhat how I moved from that into education and got my masters in education at in Oregon And then pretty much. Except for one other job with The Lake Champlain Basin Program doing watershed education. I've been working for WF And you know my my passion for this work. I I think really stems back from my childhood. I was lucky enough to spend every single summer and a place called a Greensboro Vermont which is in North East Kingdom of Vermont on Kathy Lake. It was my grandparents Cabin and my parents would just throw out the door every morning We'd be gone all day with the catching crayfish and swimming at night. We'd be catching lightning bugs and watching a shooting stars with my grandparents and it just it set the stage for my wanting to be able to pass this Passion for Nature and the environment and to also protect loved that Christie Europe. Sure yeah so I have been with National Wildlife Federation for several years as well. I think I'm going on. I started in two thousand three at National Wildlife Federation. So I guess I'm going on my sixteenth seventeenth year. I've worked in higher education program so I manage higher education programmes at National Wildlife Federation working with colleges and universities working with them to help them advance their efforts on campus Sustainability Renewable Energy Waste Reduction Habitat Restoration Green purchasing that sort of thing. And I've I've done that since the entire time I've been at NWS We also in our program here. We also help college students. Young professionals develop leadership skills and also learn more about career opportunity so career development to learn what their opportunities are in conservation field or their opportunities are in learning about sustainability and sustainability skill. So they can bring that to whatever a career field sector. They choose to go into after they finish school. So I believe you know similar to Liz. I grew up outdoors playing all the time spending all day in the summertime that we would be out as soon as the sun was up and become home. You know. As soon as it was starting to get dark I grew up camping. You know we would go to the closest national park to win where we grew up was Shenandoah National Park here in Virginia and I still live in this area in that area. So we we go to the park all the time. It's beautiful and so I take my little girl there as well So just growing up. We spent a Lotta time outdoors. I really enjoyed seeing wildlife and spending time and hiking and going to the beach and searching for seashells and that sort of thing when I graduated college. Actually a little bit. Before I graduated college I went on a trip to Andros Island. The Bahamas in it's a family island in the Bahamas and I went to a field station their biological field station and that is where I spent the next six years of my life. After College I worked at the field station. I worked with college. Students and high school high school students helping down learn about ecology and learning field skills in that type of thing and that really helped me really understand value of hands on learning. So you know whenever you education as you know there's sitting in the classroom and learning there is value to that there's also value to being out in the field learning skills. You know the experiential part of that and so. When after that after I left the field station I worked for nonprofit for a little bit in the environmental security sector and that really looked at conflict around natural resources so water timber diamonds was another example and that that was looking at conflicts most likely outside the US. And then. When I started looking for a new opportunity I was really attracted to. Nwf's education programs. We have a very large education program. National Wildlife Federation engaging. Little kids all the way up through adults and so that is kind of what got me hooked at. Nwf and applied for a job on the campus sustainability team. And so I've been here since two thousand three. That's awesome okay so I will let you guys now kind of feel these answer. You know whoever wants to answer white and build upon each other's responses in we're going to focus a lot on education recycle mania but you know the. Nwf Is a massive umbrella brand for a lot of different environmental conservation causes. So I did want to do a little bit of background about the mission. You know the strategic plan the six pillars of what makes the NWF and then we can get into the specs of the educational programs so whoever wants to field kind of the overall NWF mission answer can A. I'll go again and you know the midst of NWF is really to unite ensure that wildlife thrive in a rapidly changing world and There's no doubt in all of our minds and these days that our world is rapidly changing whether it's with this pandemic Like we're facing right now or the pack that more than one third of Americans. Fish and wildlife are at risk for extinction or the climate crisis. And of course all of these impacts what the impacts are on any of our marginalized communities so you recently. I just wanted to mention this because I think it's really important and it really sets the stage who I believe. Nwf is particularly right now and our it was CEO Calling Amarah who recently said that we need to be leading this charged with compassion. You know during this time because this pandemic is clearly showing that men. There are many structural inequalities in our societies such as access to clean water food healthcare or the

An Interview With John McKenna, Chairman of Recreational Aviation Foundation

"We're speaking with john. Mckenna who is the chairman in one of six co founders of the recreational aviation foundation or simply r._a._f. Korea created during a backwoods campfire discussion in two thousand three the r._i._f. Has developed into an organization that stretches from the pacific to the atlantic and beyond what exactly is the purpose of the r._i._f. I think our mission statement says it pretty well. It's to preserve protect and to maintain and creates recreational opportunities rare scripts for people across the united states komo early for recreational opportunities so we're talking about remote airstrips when i have in my mind is grass gris drips in the woods. Is that what we're talking about. That could be certainly what you might see or think of if you were to do the poster but they r._a._f. Has really taken to the fact that where people can go and enjoy themselves with their plane or have a fun time they also count and <hes> so we might sort of break it into two kinds of airports one which would be known as backcountry airport which might somewhat fit that descript or that you just suggested and the other is <hes> perhaps same front entry airport that isn't necessarily buried in the in the back woods or in bottom of a deep canyon if might frankly c._b._s. Not on the lakefront edger <hes> on the edge of town. I think of some in oregon that are on the beach people can frankly fly into their bonanza go for a hike or go set up their tent and bring their children or their grandchildren or friends and <hes> for a bike ride or whatever the case may be so the stereotype might be as you described. We'd like to think that it's expanding recreational use and preserving the fun places for people to go with an airplane. So how many airports like that are you counting and are they endanger of closure well. There are certainly some that are very definitely in danger and when i say danger there are activists that perhaps don't share the same interest in aviation that we all do and they would just assume that airplanes in any way shape or form place would go away and they candidly work at making that take place so there's certainly people who are actively taking to close certain airstrips in certain parts of the country then there are frankly ones where might go but at the other end of the spectrum they've just been forgotten about and there's some use but not a lot so people fly by and they asked the question. I wonder could you land there. Can i land there and our first filter is does it have some recreational value or some interest to it that people might enjoy once they get on the ground bill today. Today i find myself standing in stover mont and we spent a great day yesterday exploring some of this area with some friends many of which you would know touching down on grass airstrips all up and down the shores of lake champlain up near mount marcy and in the mountains of vermont bond and you may not think of that as that country flying but it was a landing in some spectacular places with spectacular views and lots of things extraju yeah actually i've been there and it's a beautiful part of the world i know you're from the west the news the taller mountains than they have in the east but that can be pretty rugged around stowe vermont well isn't that the fun part about airplanes and that is that we get the opportunity to see things that maybe aren't in our backyard and and yes. You're absolutely right. I might have been one of those previously biased people who thought that all the mountains in the west but i can assure you they're not <hes> <hes> somebody left behind right here in vermont and they they go up to some tall elevations and i'm convinced we don't have the corner on the market working out in the west funny so the r._a._f. Is sixteen years in to its existence into its program. How would you evaluate your record so apar- astonishing i think it would candidly i'm both at times stunned and more often humbled when you start out with six people who literally have an idea and sort of parked himselves around a campfire and you find yourself involved with an organization fifteen almost seventeen years later that has some ten thousand plus members scattered all across all fifty states in twelve or fourteen eighteen different foreign countries and you know bill. One of the most interesting things is the foreign members that we have is the r._a._f. Who i every once in a while get a chance is to engage with and their reason for belonging is they want to preserve what we've talked about here because it's probably already been lost in the place they live and they're willing to support it here just on the off chance that they may get a chance to come and do it themselves or they think that we should be pretty vigilant about this because we live in a very special spot that has some are unique freedom attached to it. What are the greatest challenges or obstacles to the r._i._f. Fulfilling its mission. It's probably not much different than most of our businesses or anything else and it's the people and the challenges we are nearly one hundred percent volunteer organization. Asian people are all volunteers. They all do this because they love it. It's surely always the <hes> the challenge to keep the right kind of leadership and people who <hes> have the time to devote to it to that end. We are blessed with a great deal of folks. That are are just passionate about this stuff so i may be you. Don't worry about the same things that others do but yet at the same time i do worry about the interest in aviation. I was just asked yesterday as a matter of fact what do you think of the drone industry and how will that affect what you're doing and we're about the places whereabouts saving the places and maybe my children or grandchildren will help them up way be he delivered to some of these special places in some sort of a vehicle that i don't quite understand yet today but if the place doesn't exist then perhaps they won't make any difference. I feel like we're on the right track. We're basically land conservation group that plies airplanes and probably not bad place to be not a bad place at all and you're at a very very good place right now up in sto- in thank you for your time and good luck with the program. Thank you so much. We appreciate all you do.
