Clean Up with Criminals

July 9, 2008 - Heather Ziegler
I had the opportunity recently to travel through Indiana and Maryland and I couldn't help but notice the cleanliness of their roads. Both states have well-maintained highways and two-lane highways. I saw a large street sweeping vehicle on one highway and work crews on others. In West Virginia, where a known murderer was permitted to attend plays and music shows, it seems we could at least send some lesser hardened criminals out to clean up our roads. Why aren't prisoners utilized in these endeavors? The weeds along the exit ramp from I-70 near Perkins are at least three or four feet high. The crumbling curbs and other garbage remain on I-70 in Ohio County. A deer was spotted on I-70 eastbound not far from the lovely tunnel for at least two weeks. Thankfully someone at least put some lime on the dead animal. I know the DOH has its really big issues to deal with right now and I know tax dollars for road upkeep are down, but there has got to be a better way to get the roads cleaned up. And please stop littering, folks. It only fuels the hillbilly jokes.
