'What leaf pick-up program?'

A recent letter to the editor wonders what happened to our leaf pick-up program. My question is, "what leaf pick-up program?" I haven't seen the new large picker-uppers anywhere near Wabash Street from 11th to Barker this year. The leaves from Greene to 11th haven't been picked up for the last four years. The only thing moving them was a snow plow that pushed them up on the sidewalk for me to shovel.

I have noticed that our infamous north end ice cream parlor doesn't see to have a single leaf around it. Could it be that it might be moved to the soon-to-be remodeled Washington Park? At least we might make some money with it down there. It didn't do much, sitting empty for, yet, another year by the tracks.

Better yet, we could paint it 10 different colors, designate it as a piece of art and put it on a north end street corner. It would join those other pieces of scrap down there.

Just a thought.
