"Thanks" again to the Society of American Foresters
for cleaning up their mile of the N. Tongass Highway. It
amazes me what they pull out of the ditches and from the road.
This time they picked up steel cable, a downspout and a
sheet of random strand fiber board that probably blew out of
someones truck. Keep up the good work, we appreciate the
On a negative note, there was a slob that threw out a M'D's bag
along N. Tongass. By the time it was done, the bag was
torn open and instead of one piece of litter, there was 28 pieces
scattered around for someone to clean up! Napkins, fries
boxes, ketchup packets, drink cups and other trash.
While checking out the trash I find along the road, I frequently
wonder what Slob or Slobett dumped the stuff. Last week
I was able to see one in action but I missed the license plate,
but can identify the vehicle if I see it again. I was driving
in the 1700 block of Tongass when I saw a late 80's or early
90's black or dark blue Toyota pickup coming in the opposite
lane. The driver was laughing while throwing trash out
the window. Apparently a friend was following him and he
was throwing the trash out to amuse his friends. I'm sure you
would also be amused when we observe his trash along Tongass,
I was-NOT. So if you see a black or dark blue Toyota pickup
let me know where it is at and a plate number so I can check
it out. I would like to see the 20 something driver be
rewarded for his entertaining antics!
