Jon Halsey: Has never seen littering to the extent it is here
Situation with littering not getting any better, except for fewer beer cans and cartons since alcohol available locally
Comments re article 88000 Comment Grant for environment or more personal responsibility
By Jon Halsey
While littering is not unique to this community, I can say that I have lived for extended periods of time in widely diverse geographic areas and I have never seen littering to the extent that exists here. For about 15 years my wife and I have made a practice of cleaning up our little part of paradise and I regret to say that the problem is not getting any better.
Not any better except, now that alcohol is available locally, we are seeing fewer beer cans and or cartons among the debris.
The solution to the problem will be resolved in the same manner that another blight on this part of Kentucky will be resolved and that is a widespread attitude toward cruelty to animals, dogs, cats and horses.
I don't have the answer but both problems will require a major attitude change among individuals.
