Letters to the Editor

Letter: Is it just me, or is it getting really noisy in Cloverdale?

To the editor;

I wanted to know if anyone else is annoyed at the train horns in Cloverdale. They start around 11:30 p.m. and they go ‘till 5 a.m.

Why do they have to hit the horn for minutes? It is not just a few toots while they are going near an intersection. The horn keeps us awake on 175A Street. I hear from my neighbors how annoying that is.

Plus, this area is getting a lot of aircraft traffic. Every day we wake up with our cars and trucks with a film of diesel fuel that they drop because they have to get rid of it so they can land.

And at the casino track, they pour lime on the track and again when it is windy we get all the lime on our cars and trucks. How healthy is that for the human population? People with respiratory problems sure don’t need it.

I hope to hear any comments from others.
