2014 in review – Thank you!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. We are happy to see that residents in Marion County – and the rest of the United States (and Italy and Brazil) are using the information on our website.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,700 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 45 trips to carry that many people.

Did you know that one of the most common items items of litter found along side the road and by the river after Christmas are discarded Christmas trees — live trees and fake ones with all the trimmings. Can you imagine anything with less Christmas spirit?

The Marion County SWA Recycling & Litter Control and the WV DEP are working together to provide proper Christmas Tree Disposal.

Live Christmas Trees will be used to create habitats for Tygart Lake in Taylor County WV.

***Please make sure that your trees have any tinsels, bows, decorations, and lights removed before dropping them off.***
