Volunteers help clean up Pike River

A lawn mower, a computer, and 15 tires — including a giant tractor tire — were among the debris pulled out of the water during the annual Pike River Revival Saturday.

Launched in 2007 by an avid kayaker hoping to clean up the river, the Pike River Revival now draws volunteers including Boy Scouts, church groups and supporters of the Kenosha Sportfishing and Conservation Association, all hoping to improve conditions in the river that flows through Somers and Kenosha before pouring into Lake Michigan at Alford Park.

Today's Poll

This week Marriott hotels launched a program that encourages guests to tip the housekeeping staff. The company says the program, called The Envelope Please, makes it easier for guests to show their gratitude to room attendants, who often go unnoticed. What do you think of this idea?
