  • LETTERS: Trash for Cash

    Dear Editor,

    I recently participated in the Trash for Cash program, which benefited the LaRue County 4-H Teen Club. I, along with other club members, cleaned up roadsides in the Magnolia area. Our members completed pick up for a total of ten miles. We split up into groups to accomplish this task.

    We picked up lots of plastic and glass bottles, Styrofoam and plastic cups, tobacco dip cans, as well as many wrappers to various food items. We even found a toilet in a ditch. Another very common item found on the side of the road was cigarette butts.

    Last week I got a parking ticket. This drives me crazy, not because I don’t agree with the law—I do—but it’s impossible to follow a law you don’t know.

    Back up for a second, here’s what happened. We had visitors at our house and the driveway was full, so I parked our car over on a nice, quiet side street in our subdivision. Back where I’m from, this would be a perfect parking spot. So how did that piece of paper end up on my windshield?

  • The many varieties of winter squash
