Dear Editor
Pendleton NJROTC cleaned litter along road Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

On Saturday, March 23, the NJROTC unit form Pendleton County High School cleaned the entire length of Route 22, from the Grant County line to Route 27. The 31 NJROTC cadets were joined by five members of the eighth grade ROTC Club from Sharp Middle School and 10 chaperones. The group filled 99 bags with trash and picked up multiple tires and other oddities such as basketballs, glass sheeting and various tools. Additionally, 12 bags with aluminum beer and soda cans were taken to a recycling center instead of unnecessarily filling our local dump.

During the clean-up, tow very generous gentlemen stopped to talk to the cadets, thanked them for their work and each made a very generous donation to the NJROTC unit.

At the end, when counting the trash bags that were filled during this five-hour evolution, it was disheartening to see that the road was already littered with several freshly discarded cans and bags from the local fast-food establishments. How can people be so uncaring?

To the residents for Pendleton County: Please help keep our roads clean.

PC girls softball team picked up 96 bags of trash Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

PCHS girls softball was given the opportunity to pick-up trash  on Hwy 17. This event was an amazing eye opener for us, we had nine players, two moms and three coaches covered Hwy 17 from the Pendleton County line to the Kenton County line (10 miles). We picked up 96 bags of trash,  five tires, a windshield and multiple other car parts. The two surprising issues were we picked up over 500 beer bottles and cans and 25 hard liquor bottles in this area. We were thanked by several residents in the area. This event made us all more of the reason to put trash in the proper place.

Thanks,
Samantha Smith,
Senior Team Captain

May is National Foster Care Month, a time to come together on behalf of over 7,000 Kentucky children who are living in foster care because their own families are in crisis. This month provides the opportunity to thank the foster families who provide homes and love to children who need them. Foster parents often become the substitute family for the youth regardless of how long they stay – be it an hour or a lifetime.

Knoxville Christian Church help to clean Hwy 467 Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

What a beautiful day for the Knoxville Christian Church as they picked up litter on Hwy 467. Over the winter the litter had accumulated for our spring clean-up. We were very busy making our county clean. There were a lot of cans, bottles, paper and trash from fast food restaurants. After we were finished we had picked up 27 bags of litter. We are proud of our county and want to keep it clean. Please don't throw out your trash!

Morgan Christian cleaned up roadside litter Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

On March 16, 2013 the Unity Baptist Church Youth Group picked up litter on KY 467 beginning at mile point 6.40 and ending at mile point 10.20. We picked up 18 bags of trash in just under five miles of road. We have adopted this highway and we would like to urge the community not to throw your trash on the roadway, but put it in your trash in your garbage cans or recycle (even better) when you get home. We picked up a variety of items ranging from screwdrivers, pocket knives, fast food trash, bottles cans, car parts and many more items. Please help us keep our community clean.

Thank You,

Youth leader Beverly Davis

Crossfire Crew picked up trash Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

It started out cold but turned into a nice day for the New Zion Baptist Crossfire Crew as we picked up six miles of trash starting from the bottom of the hill on Hwy 159. Ten of us picked up 48 bags of trash. The kids said that it was hard work, but worth it since it was for a good cause.

PCHS Academic Team picked up litter along the road Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

On 4/15, some students in the Pendleton County High School Academic Team picked up trash on Straight Shoot Road. There were nine people who picked up trash and we had 24 bags full of trash and three tires in this stretch. We also had a couch and a fire extinguisher, but most of the trash was paper and plastic from fast food and drinks.

Thanks for the opportunity to improve our  neighborhood.

Falmouth Baptist Pink Flamingos collected trash Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

The Falmouth Baptist Church Pink Flamingos Relay for Life team recently collected trash on Fishing Creek Road. We were quite surprised at the amount of trash from about five miles of road. There were lots and lots of cans, fast food wrappers, bottles, empty milk jugs, etc. We even picked up garbage bags of garbage that were just thrown along side the road. We also found five tires along side the road. It is so sad to think that residents of Pendleton County choose to throw their trash out their car windows instead of taking it with them to put in a trash can. Please help keep our county clean by NOT throwing your trash along our roads.

Signed,

Janice Polley

N.E.H.S. cleans 1054 North Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

On the chilly morning of April 3, Southern Elementary's N.E.H.S. Club had 10 adults and 11 students show up to do our Spring service project of cleaning trash from the roadside. Armed with yellow vests, water, gloves and bags groups separated to clean each of the four miles assigned to us.

The chill wore off quickly as we gathered trash including four five-gallon paint cans, tires, rugs, bottles, cans, bolts, cigarette butts, fast food containers, shoes and even a steering wheel cover. We couldn't believe we filled 42 bags only having four miles! There would have been even more bags of trash if we could have reached into the steep areas along the hillsides. We are not sure what people think when they throw these items out, but obviously the litter thrown out lingers for quite a long time. It destroys the beauty of nature and harms the habitats of the creatures that live there.

N.E.H.S. would like to thank the Pendleton County Fiscal Court and the 109 Board for giving us the opportunity for us although it is under unfortunate circumstances.
