Letter to the Editor: Band together to stop road trash

Tuesday, January 4, 2005

To the editor:

I have been complaining to anybody who will listen about the trash on the roadside and medians of our area for years, but who will listen to a submissive grandma? Start a movement. Surely the service clubs, college groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and do-gooders of our county could turn these slobs in and expect legal action. The law is on the books. With 90 percent of the automobiles having a cell phone, digital camera and/or movie camera in them these days, we could "narc" until we make believers of them. In comparison to the problems facing the rest of the world these days, the least we can do is carry our trash home with us.
