	The 15 Fairbanks elementary schools run through 26 May. I don't
have the data for the Kenai Peninsula (or Anchorage) but I suspect they
would be roughly similar.

	The Ester Dome _cardui_ was caught 14 June. Ester Dome is about
10 miles from downtown Fairbanks--the distance to schools could be from
5 to 15 miles.
