I have read with great concern as to how Emery St. Cyr has gotten his wind up about lawn clippings landing on the walk or road after lawns are mowed (“Your neighbors aren’t your lawn’s keepers,” Aug. 21 Pick of the day).
I am wondering if St. Cyr has ever thought about the possibilities that his neighbors are either unable to mow their lawns or don’t have the time to do so; therefore, they hire someone else to do the job, whereas the hired person may be careless about sweeping up said clippings.
I would like to suggest a sure-fire way to solve this problem, which is really bugging St. Cyr.
If St. Cyr will check the lawns in his neighborhood to ascertain the lawn clippings situation, he just might find it in his heart to volunteer the neighborly act of cleaning up the debris, since he has stated how much he cares about his neighborhood. This will create attention from his neighbors, which could stimulate his neighbors to walk in St. Cyr’s shoes.
Miracles do happen.
