Some dog owners still don't get it

To the editor:

Consider this a decidedly Scroogey letter to the editor written on Christmas Day.

It’s a beautiful, sunny and crisp day as I walk my dog along the river path that begins at the end of Lime Street. Not 5 feet from the very considerately placed free poop bag dispenser (there is one at either end of this path) and receptacle are piles of — yup, you guessed it! — dog poop. To those who allow their dogs to run free, even though there is a leash law, please pay attention to where he roams so you can clean up after him. The city and the rest of us are doing our job. Why not you!

As for the sewage treatment plant’s unpleasant effluence odors, I’m still hopeful this project will soon be completed and odor-free.

Other than that, I hope your Christmas was merry, bright and filled with the good smells of pine trees and delicious food!
