Great turnout for spring cleanup
I would like to thank all the volunteers who came out on May 10 to participate in the annual spring Keep Terre Haute Beautiful cleanup. It is because of the volunteers our streets got the spring cleaning they deserved.
It takes a lot to put on a big cleanup, and it would not have been as successful without the very generous sponsorship of Bush Restaurant, Data Management Shredding, Indiana American Water, ISU Recycling Center, Spectacular Soiree Wedding and Event Planning, Kimbler Heating and Air Conditioning, Gurman Container, GraphicFX, TREES Inc., Republic Waste, Kroger, Big Lots and Starbucks.
I would like to especially thank Union Hospital for allowing us to stage on its property.
Because of its immense facilities, Data Management Shredding was able to take approximately 8,500 pounds of confidential documents out of harm’s way, and the Terre Haute Police Department was able to remove 185 pounds of prescription drugs out of our community safely.
A big thank you again, to everyone involved. See you in the fall.
— Jane Santucci, director
Keep Terre Haute Beautiful
I read with interest on Friday about the national average gas price being $3.65.
I see that once again the people of the Wabash Valley have been raped — yes, I said raped — by the oil companies raising their gas to between $3.85 to $3.89 and higher per gallon. The fact that it’s done in this area often on the weekends, and particularly even more on holiday weekends, is no surprise to the people who live in the area.
The fact that this has been allowed to continue by our elected officials is a shame.
