    To the Editor: My pet peeve with Pennsylvanian and Morrisons Cove highways is the prevalence of huge billboards. The article accompanying a map in the Sept. 9, 2021, edition of the Herald (Page A-10) regarding the billboards in Pennsylvania seemed to present a rosy view of having billboards along our highways. I myself counted almost 30 billboards between east Freedom and Martinsburg advertising some local businesses but also fast food operations and beer. I believe that the state of Pennsylvania and the local communities should do more to end...
