Commending the good stuff

Letters to the Editor

How many times do we look around the community and not see what’s going on? I know it’s only human nature to complain when things aren’t right and not compliment on a good job, but I think it’s about time to thank some of these federal entities, the people doing the work and their contractors on a job well done.

For instance, Grant County has done a great job on the road to Eden Harbor, with new gravel and grading even tough the rug dumpers had been there the same as North Dam Park, leaving their garbage around. For the Park Service to allow us to walk our dogs at Crescent Bay, keeping the roads up and a clean area even though the beer drinkers throw their cans when they are finished. Somehow it gets cleaned up.

BPA takes care of the downed trees below the power lines at North Dam Park after a wind storm and takes care of the roads even though people dump rugs there. Somehow it gets cleaned up.

USBR workers have done a lot of work at North Dam Park dozing a lot of the area and keeping the weeds down. The upper park (Banks Lake Park) by the rest rooms look great and is well maintained by USBR contractors.

Oasis Lawn Care does a fabulous job keeping the ball fields and the lower entrance and amphitheater looking good. It’s not just a get-it-done job, there is loving and caring, like all their otherCommending the good stuff

I just thought that their efforts needed commending because without them a lot of stuff would not get done.
