Comment: Grant for environment? or more personal responsibility?
Suggest third alternative, starting with grabbing litterers by nape of neck . . .

By Guy Babin
Linda, it is a big problem in my view also. Trash along our otherwise bucolic byways is as distasteful as the sight of a roach on a weddin' cake.
Grant funds wisely expended toward the issue seems like a great idea. I wonder though:
What if everyone took responsibility for their own relatively small stretch of our roadways and picked up the deposits left by those inclined to litter?
It's not fair, I know. I'd rather grab them by the nape of the neck and rub their littering noses in it and force them to pick up their own mess; but, Sheriff Moss likely would not approve.
We can't change those that don't care by force, nor grant I suspect. We can make a difference by keeping our part of paradise clean in spite of those who don't care.
