Mark Hale: Most garbage truck drivers pick up lost garbage

They are working to keep county clean, not trash it

Mark Hale writes:
No doubt this fell off someone's garbage truck on the way to the dump.

All of those guys do a great job. I've seen them stop and go back and pick up bags that have fallen off the truck. Most times if the notice it they go back and get it. After all they are working to keep the county clean, not trash it.

Sometimes their trucks get really full on their route so once in a while they may lose a bag. It's not intentional, I'm sure. This was likely an accident that went unnoticed by the offender. All of our garbage guys do a great job. - Mark Hale

PTs suggests conservative treatment for opioid overuse

The American Physical Therapy Association has launched a national campaign called #ChoosePT to raise awareness about the risks of opioids and the choice of physical therapy as a safe alternative for long- term pain management.

By Jeffrey Buis, PTA & Kyle Salsbury, PT, DPT
Personal Commentary

Making the Choice: Physical Therapy Over Opioids "Physical therapy and other conservative treatments should always be considered first before medication or surgery." And "Don't put anything into your body that's not good for you and don't have surgery unless it is the last resort with all others treatments having been exhausted."

These sound like something our grandparents would have told us, being just good common sense.

It is not a secret that all medications have side effects. This begs the question: Why choose opioid pain killers when physical therapy may be a viable option?
