Does anyone remember the phrase, “Let’s Keep America Beautiful” or how about “Don’t be a Litter Bug”? Maybe these slogans date me, but I can remember when there was an emphasis placed on not littering our countryside.

I almost wrote this letter this past spring. I regularly walk a two-mile stretch on a gravel road. This spring after the snow melted, I was appalled at the amount of garbage there was in the ditches. You name it - beer cans, pop cans, liquor bottles, soiled diapers, oil containers, bags from fast food restaurants - it was disgusting! Today on my walk, someone had pitched a microwave (I assume it didn’t work) and a bag of assorted, unopened canned goods (with Channel One labels, I assume they didn’t need) along side the road.

There are proper places to dispose of garbage and our road ditches are not one of them! I am asking everyone to be more respectful of our countryside. Don’t throw your garbage along the road. Set a good example for our kids, and teach them not to be a litter bug. Report anyone you see dumping garbage. Let’s work together to “Keep America Beautiful”.
