Comment: A.L. Sinclair is right - roadsides are a mess
Writer has had 11 tire punctures in three months from debris which didn't make it to the Transfer Station on L. Willis Road. She writes, 'It looks bad for the community as a whole when people interested in moving or investing in our county come off the Cumberland Parkway to see trash and debris scattered all along and sometimes in the roadways'
By Victoria Pike
I wholeheartly agree my A.L The roadsides are a mess.
It is a shame that people don't respect their community enough to try to keep it clean.
In the last two to three months I have had eleven flat tires on my tractor traveling from the farm in front of Walmart to the farm 1 1/2 miles south on Burkesville Road, KY 61S.
I urge everyone who has debris and sharp object to haul away to secure them down or make sure nails and roofing screws are removed so they won't fall out during transport to a recycling facility or trash transfer station.
Also, accident scenes are to be swept up and the road cleared of debris before anyone leaves with a vehicle.
Most do a fine job of this but on two occasions lately glass and other wreck debris have been left in the road or slightly to the side.
A.L and his crew do a fine job of trying to keep our counties roadsides clean but it is mine and your responsibility as well to try and make our community look appealing to those traveling through on business or pleasure.
It looks bad for the community as a whole when people interested in moving or investing in our county come off the Cumberland Parkway to see trash and debris scattered all along and sometimes in the roadways.
It is good to see my dear friend A.L back at work. He hates trash as much as I do. --Victoria Pike
