Port Clinton Citizens: Don’t be a “Grasshole!”

It’s that time of year again.  When lawns grow inches overnight and pent-up homeowners respond furiously with their lawnmowers.  Bless their hearts for keeping our neighborhoods trim and good-looking.

But, as you join this noble troop, please keep in mind that your lawn clippings belong in your lawn – not in our streets.  

Every year, inconsiderate people (called “Grassholes”) blow their grass into our streets.  Consequences of their thoughtlessness include:

  • clogging our already-overburdened storm sewers,
  • grass flowing into the Lake, adding to our algae problem,
  • “slippery” pavements for motorcycle and bicycle riders,
  • just plain ugly streets and neighborhoods.

So please, please, don’t be a Grasshole yourself.  And if you see one, gently educate them by giving them two beeps of your car horn (for Grass … Hole.)  Possibly they’re not as inconsiderate as they seem to be.

Yours for cleaner streets, 
Jeffrey H. Bryden
