I pick up styrofoam cups In The wetlands along Kettletown road all the time. People throw themRead More and beer cans, nip bottles, soda cans, and McDonalds bags there regularly. In the woods, their personal dumping grounds. No one picks them up. I do. People honk their horns when I'm out there, but no one helps. What gives?

Nobody bothers to pick up trash across from their homes. Maybe they're embarrassed to be seenRead More picking up trash, but nobody does it. George's Hill Road is also littered with ignorant people's trash. Can't people take the time to pick it up?

Sure I'd use my own mug or a paper disposable cup if they offered it through the coffee shops. HowRead More about 5 cents off the cost of a cup of coffee if you bring your own mug?? Supermarkets do it if you bring your own shopping bag why not coffee shops?? Lord knows we all love our coffee! Ok, I do anyway. :)

And yes, I take my signs down immediately after my garage sale.

I like going out to yard sales more than holding them although we do at least twice a year. MyRead More boyfriend is great at finding deals (more expensive items) and then flipping them, that's pretty awesome! I enjoy the early mornings out together, coffee, meeting new people and sometimes coming across something really cool, like my angel bell. I've never heard of bookoo.com Stephanie P, gonna look into that for selling : ) thanks!

Come on people get a grip! The product is NOT MADE FOR CONSUMPTION, even though the article seems toRead More have confused most of you. It’s just a healthier alternative for children, free of toxins.

Don't know about this BRAND - but health food stores sell coconut butter, which is very tasty onRead More toast. Some of you "commenters" need to check facts...

Interesting topic, but I would love more detail in this article. For example, I'm assuming that theRead More "Friday" in question is July 5th? Also, is there a place and time for the "Free Bag Friday" or simply an email on ANY day? Do we need to include our mailing address in our email to yet unnamed "rmelia"? Thanks!

Here's a message from Rachel Melia of the San Mateo County Health System to answer your questions,Read More Elissa: "Because of the story last week's Free Bag Friday was incredibly successful. We have been running Free Bag Fridays most Friday's. Generally we just honor requests through Friday (or sometimes those that come in late on Saturday morning). In this case since it looks like people saw the Patch story throughout the weekend we are honoring requests through Monday morning. I am letting everyone that emailed after Monday morning know that they can go to our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/smchealth and look out for upcoming Free Bag Fridays. Moving forward, we will be doing these at least once a month, and sometimes up to every week. You can direct anyone that asks about Free Bag Fridays to our Facebook Page."

I wish Patch was more timely. I read about Free Bag Friday (which was Friday, June 28th) after itRead More was posted on June 30th!! By the time I requested my bag it was too late. This is NOT the first time something has been posted AFTER it happened!

It is astonishing that that ancient boats are allowed to remain in the water. If a car were blockingRead More the highway, it would be towed rather quickly. Why don't they just take a tugboat out there and tow them away?
