JEERS: To landlords who rent to folks who apparently cannot afford lawn mowers. Homeowner neighbors are fighting mosquitoes, rats, snakes coming out of waist high weeds/grass in front & back yards. Code Enforcement on AR-TX sides need to cite landlords & renters for violations and act on it. City employees need to get out and drive around and see the blight taking over mid-town and do something about it.—J.B., Texarkana, Ark.
Cheers and Jeers are published each Saturday on the Opinion Page of the Texarkana Gazette.
Cheers and Jeers must be limited to 100 words or less, and may be edited for length and legal considerations. No personal attacks, business/commercial, or consumer complaint Cheers or Jeers will be printed.
