Default Re: Smokies and Brookies in the Spotlight

I'm all for cleaning the park. I have carried a plastic bag with me since at least 1999. I volunteer most years for TU's Hiwassee cleanup so I do my part. I don't necessarily believe that an organized clean up en masse is going to do more than if everyone just carried a plastic bag with them while fishing. I have preached this for deaf ears for a few years now. I know there are some who do the same but we are in the minority and unfortunately that is the way it will stay. I write this from experience and the fact that on my corner lot in Knoxville, it is like walmar's parking lot with trash. Yet have I seen anyone besides myself cleaning the street I live on. I do get a lot of strange stares though. I guess they think I'm on DUI detail or something. I jsut don't get it. I am frustrated and tired of the trash. I have visited at least 30 U.S. states and lived in 3 diffferent one's and none are as littered as Tennessee.
