Movie buffs – remember the line in the movie Network – “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore”? Well, all the residents of Talbot County should be “mad as hell” – wishing we didn’t have to take it anymore. Take what you might ask?? Having to look at the unsightly trash that is filling the ditches along our beautiful country roads.
It is disgusting. It is sad. It is disgraceful and a stain on our beautiful countryside. And It can be fixed if only people would stop throwing trash out their vehicle windows and tie down trash and articles being hauled in the back of their trucks. It would also be helpful if property owners would take the time to pick up trash that has been thrown or blown onto their property.
The Talbot County Roads Department should also help keep our County beautiful. Its charter for road maintenance includes, “debris removal.”
Spring is here – how wonderful it would be to drive the country roads and be awed by the beauty of the flowering trees and flowers and not see our ditches filled with trash.
