1: After evaluating his consumption habits, Jefferson Athletic Director Mitch Whitehurst discovered it would take 6.17 Earths to support a population that used the same amount of resources as he did. The Earths Chart was part of a Carbon Footprint Fair held by the students of Jefferson High School on Wednesday, March 18. Visitors were interviewed by students and community members about their habits and given tips about how to reduce their impact on the environment. Students and community organizations also operated booths about proper insulation, the importance of biking, recycling and community gardening. An all-electric Xebra and a Toyota Prius Hybrid were also on display.
   2: Jefferson students Akela Auer and Marco Solis were part of a National Honor Society project that attempted to show people how many recyclable items are thrown away. The students collected four large bags full of cans and bottles – all from trash cans or litter during a week's time.
