Mikrut rail variance approved (03/27/2013)
From: Amy Wobig

I was very disheartened after reading the Mikrut article on Sunday, March 24th. These board members hardly seem qualified to be deciding the fate of my childrenís health, their future, and the future of our neighborhood. I tried to call each of these board members personally to speak of my concern to which only one answered their phone. I was rudely spoken to by one and hung up on by another. I left two messages to which only one was returned. I was urged by one member to write a letter addressed to the city expressing my personal concern and can only hope it was at least read by the board, but obviously without enough concern to take action.

What has this world come to when we can no longer rely on fellow man/woman to listen, respect, and have each otherís best interest at heart. My children will no longer be able to play at our neighborhood park without the environmental concern of breathing in a class one carcinogen. If you think, but cannot prove, that putting up a fence or covering a rail car, less then 200 feet away from where my 23-month old child plays, will prevent an invisible silica dust from entering our air and lungs then why would you even consider putting them at risk. Children are already so much more susceptible to illness and have young immune systems.

I am fed up with peopleís obsession for money that they too easily overlook the simple importance of health, happiness, and the freedom to be able to breathe fresh air. Who will stand up for the little people?
