    They didn’t come in the numbers like they did last year, and they didn’t start quite as early, but the 51 volunteers at Riversweep 2009 collected nearly a full Dumpster-load of garbage Saturday morning along Milton’s riverbanks.

    Shannon Hoskins, Milton’s city clerk and one of the organizers of the event, said last year’s event drew 80 volunteers.

    She said a severe early morning thunderstorm Saturday and rising water levels on the Ohio River may have kept some volunteers from showing up this year.

  • Soccer program should receive funds

    Editor:

    I have a son who will be going into the fifth grade  at Cartmell Elementary next year. He currently enjoys playing for the school basketball, and for parks and rec. soccer and he also ran for the middle school track team. Although he has also played baseball in the past and enjoyed that as well. He has always been an excellent student. This was the first year for grades and he made honor roll all year. I am a very supportive parent who believes school and education comes first and sports later. My son has always been able to handle both.
