This weekend turned out
to be a far cry from the likes
of last weekend and was a
most welcome change. We
have even seen some spring
flowers poking their heads up
through die earth —but I think
old man winter won't be lea

weeks. That will be toler -
able because of the eager an

It's such a shame that some
people think of our land as
just a garbage dump. I hope
that those who do will some
day be inundated with garbage,
but we get so mad to see beer

along our roadsides every few
feet, ft really is inexcusable
and so unnecessary. Oirgood
scouts and clean up crews
really have their work cut out
for them and when we get it
clean, please, let's keep it
that way.
