The downside of summer

Opinion: Letters To The Editor

Once again, as predictable as the return of fireflies each summer, is the stench of rotting garbage in the alley behind Jewel Roosevelt Market. Why am I the one who has to alert the company and the health department? Why can neither of these entities ever inspect for themselves? Currently, there are at least nine garbage cans scattered near the compactor. The alley bears a sheen of lord knows what. At the back door and around a storm sewer are pools of fetid liquid and hundreds of flies. The alley also has become Jewel's dumping ground for other types of trash: pallets, crates, boxes, broken shopping carts. It looks like the black hole of Calcutta back there, and I seem to be the only one who cares.
