|A TREASURE AMONG THE TRASH|
HIGHWAY CLEAN UP DAY 4-16-14 LMS
Wednesday, April 16, was trash pick-up day for city and county personnel. Last year the two entities committed to clean a jointly adopted portion of Highway 93 North between mile post 306 and 308.
Following a fried chicken lunch at the Island Park Pavilion, twenty three people gathered at the point where the Lemhi Hole road intersects with Highway 93 north. The section of highway adopted by the city and county begins there and extends north for two miles.
All debris on both sides of the road was picked up and placed in large orange trash bags distributed for that purpose. Workers along the two mile stretch filled 31 of the oversized bags for state crews to haul away.
The most outstanding find of the day was a local residentís fully active and valid American Express card. It was turned over to Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman and will be returned to its very fortunate owner.
Former Salmon City Councilman and highway adoption instigator Jesse Bender was, as promised, a working member of the clean-up crew. The city/county commitment to the stateís Adopt-A-Highway program lasts for three years and consists of two clean-up days a year.
