Trash collection
by Karen Ramsey

I too would like to thank the Dixon Entrance Chapter of the American Society of Foresters for their efforts this past weekend and also in past years. As a North Tongass Highway commuter, I have seen these folks on the highway many times, doing for us what really shouldn't have to be done, and that is picking up other people's garbage. It always dismays me how quickly the highway becomes littered again.

Several groups have adopted sections of the highway; I wonder where they are? The stretch out near Lighthouse grocery was cleaned up last year once, and as noted before, quickly messed up again by those who do not handle garbage properly.

Thank you again too, Mr. Cegelske, for keeping this issue fresh in our minds!
