Bullhead City enjoyed the crowds that the River Regatta brought in, but the trash debacle from this year’s event caused the city to cancel it in the future.

A few weeks ago there was a story in the Miner that Bullhead City wasn’t going to have the River Regatta anymore. The reason is people trashed the riverbanks. They said that they picked up all kinds of garbage. Even sleeping bags. I thought, “How terrible.”

That River Regatta drew a lot of people to the area and also a lot of money into the local economy. I just don’t know what is wrong with some people. I am sure that there was a lot of trash cans put out.

There are so many people that are right down lazy that they wouldn’t walk 10 feet to put trash in a trash can. They just throw it on the ground. I see it all the time. People don’t take pride in the area.

It is the same thing with shopping carts. A while back I parked next to a shopping cart place in a parking lot. When I came out of the store there was a shopping cart in front of my car. The person was too lazy to go behind my car to put it in a cart rack. People need to have a little more consideration.
