I’m writing about a man who was walking along Biltmore Avenue by the Biltmore Fitness Center at around 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22.
I was on a treadmill by the window when he came by and stopped to pick up some trash along the street. I watched as he then crossed Biltmore Avenue, deposited the trash in a trash can and then continued heading north, stopping periodically to pick up more trash.
I realize that this was Earth Week in Asheville, but I suspect that man is the sort of person who does this all year round. As one Ashevillean to another, I want to say a hearty thank you.
