Whose Hill Is It?

June 30, 2011 - Heather Ziegler
My sister and I are regular walkers who slowly but surely climb Chicken Neck Hill when time allows. This winding, steep hill can be a challenge anytime of the year, but sometimes it's just gross. We joke that you could build an entire car with all the vehicle parts from past accidents on that hill. The bumper that rested along the sidewalk finally disappeared but there have been a few mirrors and assorted metal items strewn among the downed trees. The worst has been the dead animals. There was a large opossum that didn't make the trip across the street alive. Its body blocked the sidewalk for over a week before it was gone except for a large amount of fur. Not sure if human or beast removed it. The cinders that covered the sidewalk finally ebbed but that was probably due to heavy rain that washed them off. Don't even get me started about the cigarettes, pizza boxes, cans and bottles. When one disappears, another two show up. I'm just glad we haven't been hit by objects flying out of car and truck windows while walking there. The bushes that overhang the sidewalk can be a nuisance, too. I'm not sure if the city or state claim responsibility for that area but it can get ugly. The same goes for the sidewalk along Bethany Pike in front of Woodsdale School. It's still got winter's cinders and sand there. I don't know how people run or walk on that. Tread carefully, my friends.
