Sunday’s editorial attempts to explain why normal folks might want to pay attention to the flow control debate that’s been consuming local politicians:
Your trash disappears each week like clockwork. Leave it by the curb or throw it in the Dumpster and it’s gone in the morning. Most of us don’t care that much about how it happens as long as it takes place.
So why should Horry County residents care about the knock-down, drag-out fight taking place over the county’s trash management rules? A couple of reasons. First because it’s your money being used to wage this fight. Second, because our leaders’ time and energy are not infinite, and the vast amounts of energy expended on dealing with local garbage means less to spend on other issues.
