Bonnie Young was recently honored by the Benton Harbor City Commission with a Heart of the City for her work keeping Colfax Avenue clean for more than 20 years.

BENTON HARBOR — Bonnie Young of Benton Harbor says she’s not one to sit around and complain. Instead, she takes action.

So when she moved into her house on Colfax Avenue in 1995 and saw trash in front of it, she decided not only to clean it up, but to pick up the trash on both sides of the street for almost half a mile.
