We're #8 in the USA!

"Did someone say free Frosties?"
Brazoria County ranked eighth in the nation for toxic releases in 2003, the federal government said Friday.

While Harris County beat Brazoria County by finishing sixth in the nationwide ranking of toxic releases, longtime Brazosport residents said they remain proud that lesser-populated Brazoria County achieved a national ranking.

"Next year, we may crack the top 5," said Pappy Jackson, who spends his days whittling, drinking beer and walking aimlessly up and down the heavily industrialized Highway 332 corridor.

Brazoria County residents who wish to celebrate the county's toxic release ranking are invited this weekend to enjoy a free Junior Frosty at participating Wendy's restaurants.
