Strawberries, grass, guns, more


On a story about a crackdown on littering, and if you know of an illegal trash dump that needs to be cleaned up:

• Clines Country Road in Pinoak, off of Route 10. Sections of Wright’s Mountain Road in Lashmeet. Springton Mountain Road. Wherever there is a “back road” you will find trash... — Tina H.
