Valley Viewpoints: Setting a good example

by Bob & Sandy Weston of Fulton

We would like to publicly thank two young people for taking the time to care for and improve the appearance of our city. We observed Courtney Whaley and Daniel Grandinetti, both juniors at G. Ray Bodley High School, with bags in hand picking up litter on the side of the road and front lawns of the neighborhood.

Courtney and Daniel certainly set a good example for all of us, young and old alike, to take pride in our neighborhoods. They acted on their own, not part of an organized cleanup, because it was the right thing to do.

We wonder what some people are thinking when they act irresponsibly by tossing their garbage (water bottles, soda cans, fast food wrappers, etc.) alongside the road for someone else to pick up.

Thanks again Courtney and Daniel for a job well done.
