Another Kiwanis Newspaper Bin Set Afire

Click article to enlarge
The Kiwanis paper recycling bin in College Square was set ablaze. This was the final bin for this fundraising program. The junior high students who committed the incident were identified and restitution was made.
NOTE: It should be noted that Nick Teig was misquoted in this article.  Nick said "a Million pounds of newspapers" and the reporter identified it as "a million tons."  This million pounds (only 500 tons) was a "big thing" and buttons were even created to celebrate this benchmark.
