Snow dumped in the water
By Joey Tillson


February 23, 2009

This is in response to dumping the snow in the water. It's unfortunate that we have litterbugs in this town that make it impossible for that to happen. Have you seen what our city plow-guys have had the wonderful opportunity of plowing along with the snow? Cigarette butts, cigarette boxes, drink containers, gum, gum wrappers, and other crud.

If we get upset with the cruise ships for dumping waste into our waters, what makes us any different if we dump garbage into it? Our wildlife is at risk enough already, why would we do it intentionally?
