Ban blowers to improve air

So China is causing Kern County's air problems ("Valley air pollution: made in China?" Sept. 1)?

We should we clean our own house before accusing a country thousands of miles away.

Let's start at home. Stop the usage of the leaf blowers. How about buying a push broom to sweep the sidewalks after the lawn has been mowed? I have yet to see a leaf blower pick up trash; it is blown into the streets.

Automobiles drive through that trash and create another dust storm. The Bakersfield City Council and Kern County supervisors should pass a law banning the use of leaf blowers. Maybe our allergies would be cured if gardeners were not allowed to use them.
