Take responsibility for righting wrongs
I saw a funny sight the other day. The brethren, my cousins, were lined up on the garbage carts on both sides of the highway.
Now, buzzards are not normally attracted to household garbage. But the story goes that it was particularly ripe, maybe a rash of missed pickups. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with things that bear watching around here.
I may have mentioned a month or so ago that they were repaving the road to Barrett’s Fish Camp in the west part of the county. The surface looks good on a fly-by, but did they pave all the way to the business, or just to the turn-off to the wealthy homes? I know another business that can’t do any business because the road to their site is so bad.
Rockford has a lot of veterans residing. It came on the breeze that one vet noticed the flag flying over Town Hall, flying at night and not lit up. I am not terribly well informed, but I think the Boy Scout Handbook has some information about U.S. flag protocol. It seems that the flag should be taken down at sunset, or lit up through the night.
So many little things to pick at! But, folks, the difference is in the details. Our community would grow if people cared, things got done, and people took responsibility for righting wrongs. Keeping an eye out while drying my wings in a dead pine!
