CLEANUPS UNDERWAY - Junior Waldrupe, street superintendent, pushes some brush down in a dump truck on Tuesday morning as part of spring cleanup efforts underway in Hoxie and Walnut Ridge. Working with him were (not pictured): street department employee Kenny Jones and participants in the work release program from the Lawrence County Jail. Curbside cleanups began Monday in both towns, and Lawrence County also has dumpsters available at the former Moore's Feed Store in Black Rock and the Lawrence County Shop on Highway 67, south of Hoxie, for those who live in the county.
