The transmission in our minivan died two weeks ago. Unlike the olden days, when a dead vehicle was towed to a junkyard and if you're lucky you wouldn't have to pay to leave it there, I instead placed a Craigslist ad. Within three hours we had $200 in our pocket and the van was on its way to a new owner: the Lake County High Schools Technology Campus, in the care of an auto repair instructor who drove an hour to Milwaukee to pick it up. Craigslist: more than just hookers, it helped the environment by keeping potential hazardous waste out of the junkyard, and is helping high-schoolers get another opportunity to learn.
