When Patty Misner recently took her two boys, Montgomery, 9, and Jackson, 6, to the field at North Park to fly their kites, she was surprised by what she saw.
“I was appalled at the incredible amount of trash,” she said.
So Patty and the boys went back the next day. “They were quite happy to help. My oldest son, Montgomery, stated he wanted to help because ‘trash isn’t good for the environment,’” she explained.
They picked up trash in the area between the parking lot of Dollar General and the Cedar Springs Mobile Estates, coming up with at least nine bags, as shown in the photo.
Great job, guys!

Alice Jackson sent us some photos of the “wild” things going on in her yard on Harvard Avenue.
“I set up a trail camera to see what was eating up all the things I bury in the garden,” she wrote. “They would dig it up, so I started putting it in a dish.”
She was surprised when she saw images caught on camera. “I didn’t think it would be coyotes,” she said.
She was even more surprised when she saw a raccoon and coyote feeding at the same time out of the same bowl. “It’s very unusual to see a coyote and raccoon eating together,” she remarked.
Do you have a wildlife photo you’d like to send us? Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ve also been hearing rumors again of bears in the area. If you have photos, and have seen one, please let us know!
