Ron Chiles - Volunteer Spotlight - August 2010

Ron Chiles, a volunteer with Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Affiliate OKC Beautiful, is being honored in the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful “Volunteer Spotlight” during August.

Since 2001, when OKC Beautiful’s “Litter Blitz” began, Ron has been leading a group of approximately 40 volunteers who collect 130 bags of trash annually across 150 square miles. Taking into account that an average bag of litter weighs 20 pounds, Ron and his volunteers have collected 23,400 pounds of litter over the past 9 years. “Ron is always upbeat and undaunted by the size of the project in front of him,” remarked OKC Beautiful Program Manager Nicki Largent.

Aside from volunteering with OKC Beautiful, Ron is the president of the Green Pastures Progressive Community Association. This past year, the association collected 125 bags of trash and aided in the removal of 36 illegal dumpsites. In 2008, this group of highly motivated volunteers conducted a tire clean up campaign that resulted in 3,000 tires being collected.

Would you like to nominate someone from your organization? All we need is a brief description of the nominee’s work (250 words or less) and at least one head and shoulders photograph. Nominations will be accepted only online and that process can start by clicking here.

- The Shedd jeliles exhibit was one of the few that I've been to that was worth it. I went to the B-more aquarium a few years ago for a jellyfish exhibit, and there were no jellyfish. Baltimore has nothing on the Shedd.

With the pressure plate rmoveed, you should be able to see the flywheel (Figure 15). This particular flywheel was used on a E36 318is with air conditioning. For some reason, the AC 318s used a dual-mass flywheel (probably to reduce vibrations from the high compression 4-cylinder engine). Unfortunately, this flywheel can be expensive to replace more on this later. The next step here is to remove the flywheel bolts. You can use a socket and breaker bar, or simply zap them off with an impact wrench. I used a handy electric one here (Figure 16). With the bolts rmoveed, your flywheel should be able to be tugged off of the crankshaft (Figure 17). Figure 18 shows the flywheel rmoveed from the engine.

I'd like to see a brand analysis on Crossfit. Honestly it's dirfefent than these corporate brands because it's not owned by a single entity and since Reebok took up sponsorship they have achieved world wide recognition. It's interesting because I think Crossfit is growing on such a large scare, but it's owned, instead people are doing it because of the community aspect and the fact that the work out changes all the time and overall I find it just to be interesting from a brand perspective since it seems to have started as word of mouth and evolved into something popular because of the driving force of another brand that could potentially own the Crossfit brand itself just based off of good branding on their part.
