Letters to the Editor


On Sept. 8 on News Channel 5, the St. Clair County Health Department stated that they treat standing water for mosquito larvae. I live next to Dead Creek (aka Cahokia Creek) and I have yet to see anyone from St. Clair County treating Dead Creek. So, their comments on TV are nothing but bunk and/or bull for the camera.

I keep putting mosquito dunks into Dead Creek at my own expense, purchased at Walmart and/or catalogs that I receive in the mail. I almost forgot, Cahokia is not part of St. Clair County or is it, Mark Kern?
