Trash Everywhere
By Andrea Wick

I would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to Gretchen Klein and her highway clean-up crew! What a wonderful service they did for our community and our neighborhood!

I was just commenting the other day to my kids that it was time to break out the yellow bags and clean-up our area of Shoreline and the highway ditches that line our property.

To address the comments about "Cleaning-up=Trouble", I would never think that anyone that was picking up garbage along our highways were in trouble and doing community service, I save those images of people wearing bright orange suits with KCC stamped across the back. (Too bad those who are in jail can't help cleanup our town while serving their time on our tax dollars.)

So residents of K-Town grab a bag and help clean-up our neighborhood trash, one bag at a time!
