    Re: Remember

    Two of the names on the wall were friends. Lost in '71~'72. That section appears to be those lost at the end of the war, 1975. 63915

    Re: Our County has just abandoned recycling.

    Same behavior here as you see, Paul. Beer cans, McD bags, all manner of 'snack' containers. And we're in a subdivision.
