Letter: My two cents on the Smuggler poop problem

As an avid hiker on Smuggler, I would like to give my two cents on the poop problem. We have all seen a lot of people pick up their dog’s poop and leave it in the bags along the road. Not cool, but it makes no sense in the world for our paid Parks Department to go around putting warning stickers, flags, etc. on bags of poop — come on, think about it. We the tax payers are paying for your salaries. Pick up the poop yourselves and spend more time policing the problem. What you guys are doing is making it worse. In my company, I have to do everything from sign the paychecks to unplug the toilets. Suck it up.
