Macon County needs to clean up litter

To the Editor:

Circumstances have prevented the organization of the annual county-wide litter pick-up/recycling event to celebrate Earth Day here in Macon County.  

Because there has been no one able to fill this breach for a spring-time effort, let me personally urge all Macon County residents to please go outside, pick up and appropriately recycle the glaringly evident roadside trash, the plastic bags blown into the fields, brush and trees, and the various junk decorating our streams and mountain vistas.

It is my hope we can organize a county-wide litter pick-up later in the year, on Saturday, Sept. 24, to coincide with an international earth effort taking place at that time.
