Wow! I can’t believe that it is 2020. It’s hard to believe that we are entering a new decade. At least we entered this one without all of the Y2K drama of the last. Here at Webb Weekly we are entering our 18th year. I get a little choked up thinking that Webb Weekly is
Wow! I can’t believe that it is 2020. It’s hard to believe that we are entering a new decade. At least we entered this one without all of the Y2K drama of the last.
Here at Webb Weekly we are entering our 18th year. I get a little choked up thinking that Webb Weekly is officially an adult!
We’ve made a fair amount of changes here over the years, but at our core we are still abiding by the same philosophy that we started with. A family-oriented publication that strives to bring you all the good our community has to offer.
Thank you for sticking with us for the better part of TWO DECADES. The unwavering support we get from the community never ceases to amaze me.
As we roll into another year, I once again send out the call for your contributions! If you, or someone you know has a great story to tell, please let me know! If you, or someone you know has done something amazing in or for our community, please let me know! We want to help share your stories.
I also want to thank all of our advertisers. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. The support that you given us over the years has been astounding. We all work so hard to put out the best publication possible each week so that you see more customers and so that our readers are happy. It’s amazing to see all the advertisers that have been with us from the very beginning. The foundation that they helped us build is how we keep going every week.
Another Visit From Don
Every now and again I get a visit from my friend Don. Don comes to see me to request help to get the word out about an ongoing problem in the area. That problem is trash. See, Don lives on the outskirts and between where he lives and where he hunts, he spends more time cleaning up other people’s trash than he does enjoying the outdoors.
So once again, I’m here to remind you to clean up after yourselves. I’m not sure what would make people think that the area near Rose Valley and beyond is the perfect place to dump trash, garbage and whatever else, but it has to stop.
People, this is ridiculous! If you are driving into rural areas with the express purpose of dumping your trash, you should be absolutely ashamed and more than a little embarrassed. Don, his wife, his kids, and grandkids are picking up trash BY THE TRUCKLOAD on a regular basis. Over the years Don has picked up over 600 tires, tons of trash, parts of cars and more recyclables than you can imagine.
The recyclables are what really gets me. How many drop-offs did you pass on your way to dump your trash on someone else’s property? And a lot of this trash is being dumped on State Game Land, so that’s ALL OF OUR PROPERTY! I’ve said it before — recycling is FREE! In some cases, depending on the material, places like Staiman’s will PAY YOU!! And instead, there are people out there driving out of their way to drop trash on someone else!
According to Don, dumping isn’t the only problem. A lot of the trash he’s picking up is coming from disrespectful people who are just chucking their garbage out car windows as they are driving around. Really y’all? Is it that much of a hardship to keep your trash in your car until you can find an appropriate place to get rid of it? Do you have any idea how many trash cans are around? USE THEM!
We have one planet on which to live. We can all do better at taking care of it. So if you are out and see trash lying around, pick it up and dispose of it properly. Or, at the very least, don’t add to the problem. Dispose of your own trash and recyclables properly.
