The damage continues
by Jerry Cegelske

The dumpers and burners continue to cause problems for people
in the community. Last week the school bus driver on South
Point Higgins had difficulty turning the bus around due to the
location of two burned pallets and small couch or seat of
some type. With all the nails in the pallet, it's just
a matter of time before the school bus gets a flat tire due to
the nails. Of course there was the obligatory beer bottles
left in the area.
This is only a half mile from the South Point Higgins beach area
where the beer drinking Litterbugs usually make a mess for others
to clean up. Complaints are coming in about the endless
litter (beer bottles and trash) left by them. They do not
care if your experience at the beach is ruined by their litter
or your child steps on the broken beer bottles or other trash.
Cheers to Boy Scouts of America Troop 4 for cleaning up their
section of the North Tongass Highway on Saturday! The community
appreciates the effort with the exception of some litterers.
Jeers to the Litterbugs that dumped pop cans within feet of the
litter bags collected by the Scouts within hours of them collecting
the trash! Can you think of a better insult to the Scouts
or the Ketchikan Community?
Cheers to the management and crew at Shaub-Ellison Tire Company
on N. Tongass for their painting and cleanup work over the last
few weeks. The place looks very nice with the new paint.
Cheers also to the management and owners of the Tongass Commercial
Center. The remodel with new windows and green paint make
for a great looking building and a real asset to the community.
Jeers to the people that continue to litter the Ketchikan Community
because you refuse to cover your trash on the way to the dump!
Jeers also to the dumpers and litterbugs that don't care about
the hard work groups expend to make this a better place to live
and continue to dump their trash and burn pallets for others
to clean up. Wouldn't it be better to spend the money on
the community projects this community needs?
