Old computers, hiking boots and a visit to Wal-Mart may sound like an odd combination to show reverence for the environment. But for organizers of local Earth Day events, it all makes perfect sense. Organizers are planning a series of events in Winchester on Wednesday in celebration of the day, which is set aside each year in April in an effort to bolster environmental awareness. Gary Epperson, Clark County's solid waste coordinator, said two group hikes are scheduled at the Lower Howard's Creek Nature Preserve.

Dear Editor, I would like to know why, when wrecks occur, that the wrecker drivers don't have to clean up the broken glass and dispose of it. I saw a wreck recently south of Wal-Mart and the turn lane has a lot of glass still in it causing people to run over it and damage their tires. I think if they want to haul off the wrecks, they should do the cleanup, also. Darrell KendallHustonville
