Use more care

with cigarettes

To the person driving the silver car, I have a favor to ask of you.

You were driving north on U.S. Highway 83 on Sunday, Oct. 3, at noon.

You turned west on 6 Mile Road. I followed you up the highway. Before

you turned, you threw your cigarette out the window. No. 1, you

littered; No. 2, there have been two fires further north on the highway

due to cigarettes being thrown from vehicles. Do you realize the lives

you put in harm's way? A previous fire killed 25 of our trees,

threatened our horses and came close to several homes. Where you threw

your cigarette out, there were several horses. This time of year, the

ground is extremely dry. Please think of others and what might be

affected before you throw your cigarettes out of the window.
