Re "Bringing life to a river that was dead," Aug. 23

How proud and pleased this reader was to read of the worthy work by splendid volunteers in Van Nuys who cared enough about the river environment to spend their valuable time and energy picking up other peoples' trash polluting the river.

It is so dispiriting to know that some people do not care to clean up after themselves, and are so lazy and indulgent as to ruin such a beautiful landscape for others.
