South Florida transplant appauled by litter, calls for more pride

Dear Editor:

I moved to Glen St. Mary in August of last year from Hollywood, FL to be closer to family. I have grown to love the small town atmosphere. The people I come into contact with here are some of the nicest I have ever met.

My only complaint about the area is that some people do not seem to have any respect for their towns and neighborhoods. I’m talking about the trash and garbage on the side of the roads — fast food wrappers, drink cups, big bags of garbage — sometimes in the middle of the road with cars hitting them and spreading garbage all over.

I am aware of at least two county dumps, and wonder why people want to make the area look like a garbage dump. Returning from Starke the other day, I was behind a car when the driver’s door opened on SR 121 and several empty beer or soda cans went out on the roadway. I swerved to miss them.

Wildcats hammer Bishop Snyder 70-49 at home

Cameron MackThe Wildcats cruised to a 70-49 win January 8 versus Bishop Snyder in the BCHS gym. The Cats opened up a large lead early as Charles Ruise Jr. sunk basket after basket in the beginning minutes.

The Cats ran out to a 23-9 edge in the first period when Ruise was virtually unstoppable. The Cardinals could not keep up with the pace of the Wildcats’ transition game and struggled to find their offense.

They were able to shoot more effectively in the second period as the Cats slowed the pace a little and BCHS led at intermission 44-23.

The Wildcats spread the ball around a little more in the second half, getting the ball into the paint more, but were able to hold the Cardinals at arm’s length.  The Cats led 60-39 at the end of the third period.

Ruise led all scorers with 22 points. Alex Mack added 10 for the Wildcats who travel to Baldwin on Thursday night, January 10.
