Commentary: Can we keep Columbia clean?

By A Concerned Citizen

I believe Columbia/Adair county is quite possibly one of the best places to live in Kentucky. We have good people, good churches, good community and absolutely beautiful country here. Columbia offers that small town, hometown feel that so many still welcome and treasure.

As I drive through our county, I am baffled at the amount of trash that is along our roadways. There is litter of every sort that dots our beautiful community, and leaves a negative impression on many that choose to visit, and most who live here. I don't believe I have ever seen it this bad, and I wonder why anyone would consider it acceptable to use our county as their personal landfill.

I hope the county can come up with a solution to clean things up and keep them clean including monitoring and enforcing the maximum fines for this offense. I would also urge those who are littering to please consider how disrespectful and appalling their actions are.

Please lets keep Adair county clean.

Note: We've withheld contact information at the writer's request, but have it on file. We are pretty sure his concerns are shared by lots of Adair Countians.
