Dear Editor
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 ourĀ  neighborhood.

Brett Bowen,

PCHS Academic Team

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.

New Zion Disaster Relief Mission Team picked up trash Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

On March 23,2013 11 members of the New Zion Baptist Disaster Relief Mission Team picked up 38 bags of trash on the side of the road. We began at the new Falmouth Bridge and walked for four and a half miles east on State Route 22. There were 38 bags full of pop bottles, beer bottles and various restaurant cups and wrappers.

It's a shame to see so much debris along the beautiful Licking River bottoms! Let's try to keep our Kentucky roads free and clean of unsightly debris!

The Oakland Youth Group helps by cleaning roads Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

Oakland Christian Church Youth Group a.k.a. Ridge Kids are thankful for the opportunity to serve our community by cleaning up four and a half miles of Milford Road. We collected 13 bags of garbage. This service project allowed us to earn much needed money for a summer trip. During our clean-up we found beer bottles and cans, pop bottles and cans, whiskey bottles, McDonald's bags and food. The strangest items were an eight track tape player and a toaster! We did not just do this for money, we want to help Mother Nature. This earth needs less alcohol and littering and more appreciation for Mother Nature's beauty.

Sincerely,

Della Bowling, Fifth grade student

The experience was fun and good fellowship for all.

Butler Baptist picked up trash along the highway Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

On March 23, 2013 17 members including four youth from the Butler Baptist Church Wellness and Youth Program picked up trash along highway 1657. We were amazed about just how much trash there was. We filled 27 bags of trash, along with finding five tires, and one gas tank. One item that was found numerous times were empty nasal decongestion tablet containers. These were probably left behind by those who were making meth. It's sad that there are those who don't care about littering along the road but are also making illegal drugs. We would encourage you to think twice before throwing something out alongside the road. We want to thank all who make this possible that we can help to keep our county clean.

Rev. Daryl Mullins,
Butler Baptist Church
Wellness and Youth Program
