I was driving home across the causeway on Friday evening. One pickup to the side of me was spewing construction size plastic bags on to the road.

Two weeks ago a pickup truck spewed six concrete bags out of the back with the bags going into the marsh. This scenario has happened many times over the years that I have lived here.

We live in an ecologically fragile area. The negative impact of plastics in the ocean and our marshes to sea life is well documented, I strongly suggested that the powers that be place some signage on the causeway that trucks must batten down the debris in the back of their vehicles.

I would further suggest that when a police officer sees debris flying out of the rear of a truck, the driver is either issued a warning or a ticket.

Sincere dedication to the ecological protection of our precious coast needs to be enforced.

Fire gutted a vacant house shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, leaving fire crews working hard through noon to extinguish the flames and make sure they did not spread to nearby trees or the neighboring business.

This past week, I received a telephonic Robo Call from someone stating he represented the Glynn County Republican Party. There surely must be a parallel universe with a similar name since that call was nothing but false accusations and lies about ESPLOST 3.
