Kudos to those who put trees in city’s downtown

Published: Saturday, May 18, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

It is so easy for people (myself) to accept good things as normal, and say nothing. However, we are quick to complain about anything negative.

Well, I want to pass on a big thank you to whoever had the vision to plant the trees all over downtown Sterling.

The past few weeks, the downtown area has been so beautiful, with the trees covered in white blossoms.

I realize it took planning for the future, and [supporters] probably faced difficulties getting the idea approved.

So, thank you, whoever is responsible.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
