Litter crew cleaning up Pacific County one piece at a time

<I>KEVIN HEIMBIGNER photo</I><BR>Tasha Ford, sophomore at Naselle High School, is part of a litter crew hired by Pacific County to help clean up roadways in the area. She was busy Wednesday picking up "lots of different stuff" on Pacific Highway in the Klipsan area.

PACIFIC COUNTY - A group of about a half dozen Naselle High School students are working with Pacific County to form litter crews to clean up the roadways in the area. The young people, mostly freshmen and sophomores-to-be, have been filling bag after bag with "a lot of different stuff" according to worker Alex Bennett.

Bennett says the oddest thing he's found was someone's school report card, no doubt littered with poor grades. He also found a toilet. Tasha Ford said, "The strangest thing I've found so far is a pair of men's underwear."

The crew works four days a week and should be finishing up their project some time next month. The crew members agreed that the nicest thing about the project, besides helping keep Pacific County beautiful, was that they were getting paid.

Motorists are reminded to drive with caution in the areas the litter crews are working.
