Among changes: a limit to large items that can be put in the garbage at once and a requirement that all garbage goes in a container. The city council will also have to approve the new rules at a meeting next month.
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum appeared in Sparta this morning and pressed his own argument that he’s the best candidate and rival Mitt Romney is the worst to challenge President Barack Obama on the health care issue in the fall. Santorum told a group of lumberyard workers and supporters that healthcare is the most important issue in this election. While Romney says he would fight to repeal Obama’s health care law, Santorum says Romney essentially is disqualified because he put in place a similar law in Massachusetts when he was governor, including a requirement that all residents buy health insurance. Santorum won Louisiana’s primary Saturday but continues to lag behind Romney.
