Donna Fechter still remembers a song that a priest taught her 40 years ago at her Queens, N.Y. Catholic school called, "God Bless the Garbage Man."
It goes like this: God Bless the garbage man. He is so nice and clean. He's always picking up our stuff, but he is never seen.
If that priest could see her now, he'd probably be proud. This is the second time in five years that Fechter, Danville-Boyle County Solid Waste Coordinator, has been named a solid waste shining star by the Kentucky Environmental Protection Cabinet.
The award is given for overall excellence in disposal, recycling, cleanup and education. Fechter does it all here, and a member of the cabinet came to a recent Boyle Fiscal Court meeting to tell the magistrates how impressed the state is by Fechter's performance.
