Yard sale trash

This letter is for everyone who has the time to put their yard sale signs/boxes out on country roads but who don’t pick them up after the yard sale. Those who put them out there, at least have the courtesy not to leave trash out on our country roads.

Out on Alexander Road and Mabton/Sunnyside Highway I have seen several yard sale boxes for two weeks or more. People just leave their trash there…and that’s what those boxes and signs become after cars and trucks drive over them, just pieces of cardboard lying all over.

What is happening, people? Sooner or later none of us are going to have the right to put our yard sale signs and boxes out on country roads to help advertise our sales. Just like in town, when I remember seeing all of those yard sale boxes and signs on poles. It looked so bad after the sales were over.

I hope this message will have people thinking that I’m right. Pick up your garbage.

Let’s keep our countryside clean. I hope some care.

Sunnyside pageant

I would like to thank this year’s Miss Sunnyside candidates for participating in the pageant. You are all exceptional young ladies in our community!

I would also like to thank each candidate’s parents and local businesses that sponsored each one. I would like to once more than everyone who helped with the pageant…the stage crew, all the back stage crew and all of the businesses that donated to the Miss Sunnyside program.

I also want to give a big thank you to the community of Sunnyside for attending our pageant. Thank you for making the Miss Sunnyside program a success.

/s/ Teri Alvarez-Ziegler, pageant director

The Sunnyside Lions Club sponsored a “Play it by Ear” golf tournament Saturday, Sept. 16. Thanks to all who participated. We raised more than $350 for the Northwest Lions Foundation for Sight and Hearing.

Thank you to those who donated prizes, including Banner Bank, Wilbur-Ellis, The Funny Farm, Carol Stone, American West Bank, Cristina Klatovsky, Martha Conradt, Cherry Hill Golf Course and Doc’s on the Green.

The Daily Sun News and KZXR provided excellent public service announcements.

Congratulations to the golf winners and raffle winners.

We are already planning on our second annual golf tournament…bigger and better.
