To the editor:
When we talk about the beauty of Douglas County, Lawrence and the surrounding area, we look at fine lawns and great amounts of vegetation. This is wonderful to see in the spring, until the dandelions appear. They multiply by the thousands every spring, and the city does nothing to stop it.
I spend more than $100 each year to put weed and feed on my lawn (as small as it is), but to no avail. I am losing a battle that can't be won alone. We need the city to get serious about killing the millions and millions of dandelion plants or we soon will be overrun with them and lose the beauty of the area. A little bit of weed killer on them and they will be gone, but it must be everyone who does this or we all suffer with those ugly things.
