To the editor:
While driving home from time with my daughter, I got to thinking of all the people I need to thank for just doing their jobs this year.
First is the city of Lawrence for being my hometown. That includes the parks and recreation department for making the locations around town full of beautiful lights and trees, banners and activities for everyone to enjoy,
The next department I am especially grateful to this year is the street crew for all the work getting Kasold finished, for the redo on 15th and Ninth streets and the list goes on for more streets than I frequent, but I am sure others will be thought of this month.
The last I want to give a special thanks to is the trash collection staff. They have collected leaves until I’m sure they are dreaming of green lawns or snow to come. They are due a big THANKS and maybe a goody with the trash.
And now a big thank you to all those who have made their homes lovely to look at these holiday seasons celebrated by so many faiths.
