Much agreement about leafblowers

To the Editor:

I could not agree more with Jane Shanley about the insufferable noise and pollution from gas-powered leafblowers.

If I had my way, they would be banned from the Island!

We at Seagrape Colony are attempting to do something about it by ordering a battery-powered blower to be used by our landscape service.

We’ll see how that works out.
