What, Not A Saint?

RE: F. B. Baker III letter of May 12 – this will be my last answer to any of your letters. By the way Mr. Baker let me know when you become a Saint.

Was It Necessary?

RE: Dr. Paul Kerr letter – from one old man to another, "Doctor, do you really believe the Iraq war was necessary?"

Our Sincere Appreciation

All of us at PENNDOT District 4-0 would like to express our sincere appreciation to all the volunteers, both individuals and groups, who took part in last month’s Great Pennsylvania Cleanup. There is no more discouraging sign of spring than the vast amount of litter that appears along our roadways when the snow melts. There is also no more encouraging sign of community pride than the thousands of volunteers who help clean up that mess each year.

PENNDOT spends more than $10 million each year on litter cleanup. That figure would be three to four times more, if it weren’t for the volunteers who help us remove litter from our roadways.

The Great Pennsylvania Cleanup on April 24 was a big success in Northeastern Pennsylvania this year, thanks to the volunteers who gave up their time to make this area a better place for all of us.

We thank them and all of the volunteers who help us keep the highways cleaner year round through the PENNDOT Adopt-A-Highway program.

It’s one thing to sit back and complain about all the litter on the highways, it’s quite another to actually do something about it! All of us who travel on the roadways of Northeastern Pennsylvania should be grateful that so many volunteers take the initiative each year to help Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.


Robert T. Doble, P.E.

Acting District Executive
