Give the members of Highland Park FIDO (Friends in Dog Ownership) a thumbs up for their effort to focus their neighborhood on a real problem: Dog poop. No, it might not be something people want to think about or talk about, but it is an issue people need to aware of — in all neighborhoods.
Folks walk their dogs, their dogs do what dogs do, and then the folks don’t do what they should do: Pick up their dog’s waste.
It’s not just a problem in Highland Park.
“It’s a problem in most communities,” said Sharon Nelson, a member of the Highland Park FIDO group. “This is a common problem for most municipalities.”
