Dear Editor,

I have volunteered to pick up trash in the Lake Martin area for a number of years. I know that the Clean Community Partnership, Lake Martin Area Resource Association, the Boy Scouts, churches and many other organizations and individuals fight the litter problem in our community daily.

A lot of the litter I have picked up is the Talla-Coosa Advertiser lying wet, in ditches and unclaimed. I have seen it littering driveways of vacant lots and piled in the yards of elderly people on my Meals on Wheels route. I myself am finding it difficult to climb into the ditch in front of my home to retrieve the papers that miss the driveway.

I appreciate the free publication but respectfully ask that for those of us who do not want the Talla-Coosa that you provide a way to “unsubscribe.” Most companies now provide this option for the hundreds of emails we receive daily and I am respectfully asking that you consider doing the same.

Thank you for your consideration.

Wendy Powell
