Write to be heard: Kudos to Captain cleaning the waterways

ADVERTISEMENT

I take my hat off to Capt. Carlos Macias and his wife, Rose, [“Skipper’s anger nets a ton of trash, all pulled from his SUP,” page A9, December 2012] for picking up all that trash, and wish them all the best.

Marcia and I live on Rockfish Canal in Ft. Lauderdale and are constantly out on the water, in a kayak or dinghy, doing trash patrol.

This year, having participated in the Marine Industries Association of South Florida’s annual Waterway Cleanup once more, we returned home in time to see our neighbor tossing his yard trash and doggie doo from the dock into the canal, yet again.

We asked him to cease and desist, and informed him it is against the law, common sense, courtesy and decency. I accomplished nothing as “stupid does what stupid wants.” And no one in authority gives a toss.
