This partition behind marketing director Kathy Hirsch's desk is made from old cardboard cylinders at the center of rolls of paper used for printing blueprints. Once empty, the 3-foot-long cylinders were cut into 12-inch sections and connected with wood glue. The larger cylinders serve as mailboxes for the CMSA staff. Staff photo / Harold Bubil; 2-21-2013.
