New Citizen Air Monitoring Program Starts Up in Cleveland

by WKSU's KAREN SCHAEFER


Reporter
Karen Schaefer
 
The city of Cleveland has just launched a new air monitoring program that lets Cuyahoga County residents take samples of air pollution themselves. Officials are hoping the new program will help them identify what's in the air so they can pinpoint the source of the pollution.

Listener Comments:

Karen, So nice to see your web page and to hear your voice and delightful transmissions from time to time on WKSU. I write to request a Public Service Announcement to broadcast this coming week. It could read as follows:
A Benefit Concert featuring the multi-talented Balint Karosi, winner of awards on both organ and clarinet, will be presented on Sunday afternoon, May 6 at 4 p.m. at the First Church in Oberlin, United Church of Christ, corner of Main and Lorain Sts. No tickets are required, but offering plates will be passed to collect contributions for the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Lorain County, a coalition of congregations that feed and provide overnight accommodations for homeless families.

The organ half of the program will include works by Buxtehude, Brahms, Mozart and Reger. After intermission, Mr. Karosi will play solo clarinet in Mozart's Quintet in A Major, assisted by a string quartet from Oberlin Conservatory of Music.

A reception will follow the concert where, in honor of Mr. Karosi's birthplace, Hungarian refreshments will be served and Hungarian folks dancers will entertain.

Kren, Please feel free to shorten this also. We do thank you so much. Carol Longsworth, IHN
