Editor, the Leader-News:

Releasing balloons is littering and harmful to wildlife, marine life and livestock.

Released balloons kill countless animals and cause dangerous power outages.

Litter is covering our ditches, landscape, waterways and oceans. Balloons blow ... don’t let them go.

For more alternatives, facts and photos, visit Balloonsblow.org.

While I’m at it, pickup owners, don’t throw your trash in the pickup bed. It blows out.
