In response to Gilton fined over tires (Aug. 10, Page A-1): Really? Who are the greedy people behind this? Gilton does our county a big favor by hauling off those tires. This is ridiculous. The ones who need to be fined are the people who junk tires on our back roads with the rest of the trash out there.
Editors note: The fine, which Gilton is appealing, was filed by the California Department of Resources Recycling & Recovery.
