What I see in my daily commute is occasional brief periods of intense, well-staffed activity, then long periods of nothing, or one small crew working on an isolated part of the project, such as a section of sidewalk, while the rest of the project lies fallow.

I would really like to see this project completed, but I suspect it’s low on some important people’s list of priorities.

Nuclear disarmament

EDITOR: The United States, with more nuclear weapons than any country in the world, is in no position to tell North Korea that it can’t have nuclear weapons too. It’s time for the United States to say to Kim Jong Un, “We will eliminate our nuclear arsenal if you will end your nuclear weapons program.” This action would be setting a precedent for other nations to dismantle their nuclear arms, giving the world assurance that life on earth will be preserved.

A solution: Don’t litter

EDITOR: The amount of trash along our roads and highways disgusts me. We have so many serious problems without easy solutions. However, the solution to trash is literally in our hands.

I don’t know why so many people think it’s fine to throw their trash down on paths and roads. We shouldn’t have to pay city/county/state employees to pick up that trash. I traveled the roads of Michigan this past year and was amazed at how trash-free the roads were.

Are their people cleaner than Californians, or do they spend money to clean up trash deposited by their citizens? Maybe we need another “do not litter” campaign starting in the grade schools so that kids are raised to respect their environment.
