This week I drove the North Tongass Highway and observed that someone had graciously taken their time to pick up the trash in the ditches along the road from about Mile 12 to Higgins Spur where I turned off (and maybe beyond that).

I do not know who did it but I would like to say "Thank you for your service to Ketchikan!"

I tried to get it cleaned up last year but it snowed the night before the clean-up was scheduled and when it was rescheduled there wasn't much of a turnout as Mother's day was the next day. I had gotten complaints about it but hadn't gotten the help to clean it up.

I asked an individual that lives on N. Tongass if he cleaned it up. He replied that he didn't but that it looked very nice now. I hope it can stay that way.
