Cascades Amateur Radio Society joined Adopt-A-Highway 20 years ago

Nick Dentamaro | Jackson Citizen PatriotSteve Rauscher, center left, pokes at Larry Phillips as he and Fred Bruey, left, and Dick Stanley clean up M-50. The members of the Jackson Amateur Radio Club have been cleaning up their adopted stretch of M-50 since 1990. Read more about the Adopt-A-Highway program

Fred Bruey bent down and wrangled a rusted hunk of metal twisted in the grass.

“Oh look, a muffler,” he said.

Not much was left of the muffler, which had probably been lying on the side of M-50 for some time. But not anymore. Bruey, a member of the Cascades Amateur Radio Society, slid the garbage carefully into his official Adopt-A-Highway bag, and in doing so another piece of trash was removed from one of Michigan’s roadways.

The radio society joined the Adopt-A-Highway program 20 years ago during the statewide highway clean-up initiative’s first year.

“This is one of those things we decided to do 20 years ago, and we’re still doing it,” said the society’s Dick Stanley, who originally adopted the 2-mile stretch of M-50 between Rives Junction and Hendee roads.

On April 12, the evening 12 volunteers from the Cascades Amateur Radio Society cleaned along M-50, the bag count numbered around 20. The group, splitting into teams and employing a popular divide-and-conquer approach to the trash, filled bags with cups, wrappers, bottles, crumpled cigarette packs, chunks of shredded tires and even a set of gloves. Stanley scored big, finding a still-sealed, half-pint of rum and the club head of a 9-iron. Bad day on the course, he thought.

Initially, there was no connection between CARS and its adopted stretch of M-50. Stanley chose the section of roadway, in part, because he thought it would be safer. But he also wanted neighbors to see the difference.

“We thought maybe it would be a little connected to the neighbors if we did one of these side streets,” Stanley said.
