Special to the Courier

The Community Forest Trust, a nonprofit organization working to "create a community-wide ethic of stewardship for the Prescott National Forest and surrounding landscapes," has announced opportunities for service to the forest in observance of the Martin Luther King Day.

Classes, clubs, groups and individuals from area middle schools, high schools, and colleges are invited to volunteer a day or half day on Jan. 19 and/or Jan. 21, to work on service projects in the Prescott National Forest. Volunteers are needed to assist in making repairs to the popular Thumb Butte trails and assisting in cleaning trash from the forest.

MLK Day is the perfect time to volunteer your energy, time and enthusiasm to help the forest in our area. Make this MLK Day "a day on, not a day off." Contact Bruce Maurer at the Prescott National Forest office 443-8320 or email him at bmaurer@fs.fed.us. He will help make the arrangements with your organization.

Article comment by: Using MLK

Everyone is trying to take advantage of this holiday for their own purposes and ignoring the message of MLK's life, which was NOT about serving or volunteering. As a matter of fact, a Day of Service wouldn't even be necessary if we had our priorities straight. But hey, we turn Jesus' sacrifice into a Season of Shopping, so what's new?

The kids get something to put on their college application, the agencies get free help, and MLK's words are lost too soon, just like his life.

Article comment by: MLK on gun control

"Most people think King would be the last person to own a gun. Yet in the mid-1950s, as the civil rights movement heated up, King kept firearms for self-protection. In fact, he even applied for a permit to carry a concealed weapon."

In the spirit of the season, I wonder how MLK would feel about gun control...
