Shoreline Litter Post, Again...

2 posts in this topic

I apologize if there have been lots of posts similar to this one, but I see it getting worse instead of better. We've owned a little property on a lake in the Walker area for 4 full years now.

Every year I go around picking up a bunch of [PoorWordUsage] that apparently people can't seem to dispose of. I will hardly mention the beer bottles and cans that I find riddled on our property every spring (we have a Cty road that splits our property). This year alone I found one large styrofoam bait cooler, one five gallon bucket, and 4 worn out car/truck tires. This is only including 200 feet of shoreline! The tires makes me mad because they are unsightly. Now I get to pay to dispose of them because someone is too cheap to pony up themselves. The two bait buckets (150 feet apart) I'm assuming are ice fisherman because they weren't there late last fall.

I realize there is nothing really to be done, except to clean up after these slobs. What kind of fine can someone get if they get caught disposing of tires in a lake? Would fellow lakeshore owners confront someone if they saw someone dumping in their lake? We're on a beautiful lake with 14 foot clarity. Just had to get it off my chest, and hopefully others aren't experiencing the same thing I am.

Not to your extent, but we do pick up any trash we find in the lake, whether on ice or in boat. Teaching the grandkids that from the time they started going with. Hopefully it will rub off and they will always do it, and teach their frineds as well. Last year Bald Eagle was a mess during ice...

    • The Clinton camp might have thought twice before parading the former beauty queen out to show how bad he is to women considering the extensive list if women her husband has had his fun with over the years. I am surprised that the Republicans haven't made them more if an issue but I suppose they didn't want her to play the victim card but at this point I think they have to take off the gloves and throw it out there.
    • Is that all I'm good for?!         I know the answer is yes....
    • Thanks Lip Ripper, I've looked at a couple of your builds on this page and I never would have noticed that! I've never seen a fish house in my area as the closest lake safe to drive on in the winter is an hour and a half away, so I definitely appreciate all the help I can get from the experts!!!  
    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.
