I found the spotlight letter from Mr. Andrie interesting. I and many longtime rural residents in the county can certainly sympathize with him. I suppose this problem exists everywhere. I live on our farm at 500 South and our “dumpers” live in Mineral Springs and the new development just to its south.

And like Mr. Andrie says, it seems to always be the same beer, whiskey and wine drinkers and the same White Castle and McDonald’s eaters. I’ve talked to a few of my rural neighbors, and they echo this issue if any development is nearby.

I wish I knew why people feel it’s OK to pitch these things out their car windows in rural areas, but for the most part refrain from doing so along city or development streets. Any ideas?
