OUR OPINION: Litter is eyesore in city, county

Littering simply means throwing away objects on the ground or leaving them lying on the ground instead of disposing of them in a garbage can, recycling bin or trash container.

The most Herculean of all tasks

One day long, long again in ancient Greece, Zeus dropped by to visit his son, Heracles. He took the form of a bear or a wombat or a rock or something. Mythologists aren’t quite certain. It was probably a bird, though, so let’s just go with a goose. “You do far too much sitting around,” […]
