Message of thanks for help with tire cleanup

To the Editor:
Many thanks to TVA, Northeast Regional Economic Partnership, AmeriCorps Environmental Stewardship, and the Keep Carter County Beautiful volunteers who dedicated their Saturday morning to the TIRE-ER-CISE Tire cleanup! Or, should I say “Mud-fest?”
It is estimated that almost 1,000 tires were removed from the Cherokee National Forest, Buffalo Mountain. We had a fantastic group of strong, determined hard working volunteers, who once again got the job done. Thank you to all!
KCCB looks forward to the day when these sorts of clean-ups are no longer necessary. Our environment is suffering. These dumps sites are illegal, and violators can be prosecuted.
