Nike Gives Everlast A Foot Up In Fitness Flooring

Lancaster, Penn.–Everlast Sports Surfacing will partner with Nike, Inc. for 2009 to begin incorporating Nike Grind rubber in its fitness flooring products, which will be called Everlast with Nike Grind. The product combines raw materials made from recycled athletic shoes including out-sole rubber, mid-sole foam and various other shoe components with recycled tire rubber. By using Nike Grind rubber in Everlast Sports Surfacing products, nearly 500,000 pounds of by-products will find a higher value reuse than may have otherwise been possible.


Updating Emergency Plans A Good Idea

I read your article “Sound the Alarm–Implementing an emergency operation plan” in (Nov 2008) PRB. I would like to receive a copy of your emergency operation plan. We have been trying to update an old and out-of-date plan that we have now into something more substantial. Would it be possible to receive a copy of the one you wrote about?Thank you for your assistance.

Recreation Road Show Strikes A Chord

Hello Randy,

I just finished reading your article Start A “Recreation Road Show” (Dec 2008). I can’t tell you how many times people in the public say to me, “your job must be easy–all you do is play all day.” Would you please e-mail me a PDF of your presentation? I would love to see it. What a great idea!

I just read your article and I am interested in your presentation–will you please e-mail me your PDF file? We have an upcoming Citizen’s Academy in February and would like to have something in the way of a PowerPoint presentation to showcase what and who we are!

Hi Randy,

I just read your article on the Recreation Road Show and was very impressed. Nice article and good information. After taking a serious hit for the 2009 budget that was just adopted in our city, I now know that I need to do some serious educating here. Is there any possibility that I could get a pdf file of this info since it may help me and give me ideas of what I need to do?
