HEBER - Martha Gonzalez would take her morning walks along the canal near Pitzer Road and recalls seeing the sunrise and the sky filled with colors. “It was a wonderful thing that you can't see in cities anymore,” she said in Spanish. But the last time she had her walk and got near her house on Meridian Street, she saw trash under trees on the empty lot. “I imagine people dump trash at night,” she said. The empty lot on Pitzer Road and Meridian Street, where Heber ends, has become an eyesore for many residents like Gonzalez and her neighbor Irma Partida.

Scott Sheppeard. Volunteers divided into two groups, with one group painting over graffiti and another group picking up trash and clearing brush.
