Like many of the Henry County Middle School students who walked around the edge of the first lagoon at the Waste Water Treatment Plant in New Castle on Halloween, there are a few things I don’t think I’ll ever forget.
The tomato plants growing up through the rocks that line the lagoon’s edge is one indelible image.
The veritable sea of white, green, purple, blue and pink plastic tampon applicators, littered along the rocks is another. In one photograph I took, I counted more than 50. It was a little disturbing and unforgettable.
