Re: "Relocating rail line should be priority," the Now letters, Feb. 19.
Only during election campaigns will you hear politicians promise to relocate the train tracks. Linda Hepner, Wayne Baldwin and soon-to-be-heardfrom Dianne Watts will all promise to relocate the train tracks.
It will never happen and they know it but it sure buys votes from the gullible voters.
Fences are a lot cheaper than relocating the track and I think they are an appropriate solution for safety issues.
White Rock and Crescent Beach are nothing more than a bunch of NIMBYS (not in my back yard).
Too bad for you. You all bought your properties knowing the train tracks were there, now you can either live with your buying decisions or you can move to another location.
I have no sympathy for any of you because you would happily relocate the train tracks to my area of Morgan Creek, wouldn’t you?
To solve your so-called problems with the train tracks, you can slow down the train speed and Crescent Beach residents can pay a special levy for their community to put in an underpass.
See, the problem is solved!
