I read the Gazette article “Satellite hits Atlantic – but what about next one?” (Nov. 12, page A4) with interest.

Also, I turned on the TV one night and saw part of a program about a floating mound of thousands of tons of debris in or on the ocean floor – moving around? Why haven't we heard more about that?

A man cleans barge loads of “stuff” from the Mississippi River with lots of volunteer help each year. Rock Falls cleans the canal every year.

We need more interest in our water areas. They're very precious to us. Keep the stories coming.
