More humor from Monte

April 16, 2011

As seen in earlier postings, from time to time Monte would create parodies involving issues of local interest and of people known to him.

The first illustration involves the decision of Fulton County officials to accept sludge from the Metropolitan Sanitary District of Greater Chicago (MSD).  Fulton County officials agreed to receive Chicago sludge for economic reasons and theoretically to assist in the reclaiming of ravaged strip-mined land located in Fulton County.  The sludge was transported to Fulton County by barges on the Illinois River down to Liverpool, IL and then pumped eleven miles through a twenty inch pipeline to the areas to be reclaimed (see, New Scientist, August 29, 1974, p. 544).

Below is a drawing which includes local characters known to Monte during his time at Big Lake.

The image below is of one of Monte’s brothers during a stint in the army.

The last image is another parody drafted by Monte during his tenure at Big Lake and of people who frequented the area over the years.
