Saturday, about 20 people gathered to pick up trash along Highway 12 from Verano Avenue to Agua Caliente Road in the Springs. The event was sponsored by the Springs Business Community. Luz Munoz and Elba Sanchez pick up trash under the watchful eye of a California Highway Patrol officer. And volunteers picked up between 30 and 35 backs of trash during the three-hour event. La Luz, which co-sponsored the event, said another cleanup could be scheduled in the spring.
