On Tuesday afternoon, the Observer News Enterprise visited local people in the city of Newton to pose the question, â€śHow are you staying warm through the cold weather?â€ť
O-N-E Staff Reporter Jimmy Hilton asked this question to three people and took down their responses.
Keeping the streets of Conover clean is not an easy task, but Keith Lynch and his crew are up to the challenge.
Lynch, who is the city's Solid Waste supervisor, said their jobs include picking up the garbage, lawn debris and recycling.
â€śConover, Newton and Hickory are the three major cities in Catawba County that handle garbage and recycling,â€ť Lynch said.
