I’ve had enough! Litter continues to plague this community and complaints seem to be falling on deaf ears. The trash on our city and county roadways is ridiculous. Daily we have to pick up empty cigerette packs, lottery tickets, food bags, cups, used face masks and more out of the yard here at the newspaper.

I’m confident other property owners around town and along roadways in our county have to do the same constantly. These trashy people have no respect for others or this community.

As reported last week, Sheriff Mark Melton told me recently that he and his deputies are really fixing to crack down on litterbugs and start issuing more citations when they catch the culprits. Therefore I am making this New Year’s resolution...if local law enforcement write tickets on the people responsible for trashing our community with their litter, I promise to publish the names of these individuals.
