Plastic, Apparently

Recently, the Customer Service team at Whole Foods Market took some time on the hottest day of the year to clean up a portion of Schenk's Branch from McIntire Park to Charlottesville High School's softball field. Here we are in all our post-cleaning glory!

Plastic bags, bottles and cans were by far the most common commodity. More unusual items included various intimate types of clothing, the longest hose I've ever seen, a golf club, several plastic balls from a kids play pen (the kind you find at various fast food restaurants), a large piece of chain link fence and the type of large wooden reels used to hold coaxial cable.

I used to be a death penalty opponent, but I now believe throwing packing peanuts into a creek should be a capital offense.
