Parish must work hard, smart in 2009
• Clean up. Lincoln Parish is likely not even close to the midpoint of a years-long fight with litter and garbage. We’ve made some moves that will help — the nonprofit Keep Lincoln Parish Beautiful was formed and affiliated with the national agency, and the Lincoln Parish Police Jury is looking into consolidating Dumpsters, for example. Really helping change the way we think about trash will be the only successful way to attack any effort to keep the parish clean, and attitude changes begin with kids.
