Sound Off — March 29

The “Grassholes” are back!
It’s that time of year again in Port Clinton. Trees are budding, grass is growing and the “Grassholes” are dumping grass in the streets again.
Familiar with the term “Grasshole?” This is an inconsiderate or unthinking person who, when cutting their lawns, lets their lawn mower blow grass clippings into the streets.
Where do they think this debris is going to go? Most intelligent folks know that the next rain will rinse the grass toward the nearest storm drain. If the grass doesn’t clog the drain, it will be dumped into our storm sewer system, adding to the already aged and over-stressed system of pipes beneath our streets. And when storm sewers can’t handle the rainwater runoff, remember the last two summers of flooded streets and basements?
Throwing debris of any type in the street is against the law. And it’s just plain inconsiderate too. Don’t be a Grasshole — keep your lawn in your lawn. And please pass this advice along to any neighboring Grasshole you see?
Yours for cleaner (and drier) streets,
Jeff Bryden
