Goats: Progress, not poison

When I see the goats briskly grazing noxious weeds on the side of our community bike path, I gain a wonderful sense of joy and relief. We're experiencing progress instead of poison. This may not be an end-all solution, but it shows first-rate intentions. I appreciate the open dialogue and each opinion in the newspaper as this helps plant seeds for even better solutions.

I am a rollerblader and I am so impressed by how the Blaine County Recreation District cleans the bike path every few days. If you come across the goat droppings before the path has been swept, remember there is another way—just turn around and keep on enjoying yourself.

On another natural note: I find it equally inspiring that esteemed scientists have cultivated a worm that wants domestication and munches our food scraps and shredded paper quickly, then excretes the richest soil on the planet. Seeing goats and knowing worms, I feel that anything is possible as we try to evolve into better earthly beings.
