Letter to the Editor: Railroad Track Blocked at Pan Am Community

Please let us know why a train can block a community from around 2am until now and nothing has been done about it.  This isn’t the first time this has happened here at the Pan Am Community. This has been happening for years but still our representatives and city officials could care less.  After all, it’s not them that’s being blocked in.  This was the first day of school and the children couldn’t even catch the bus but had to go to the next community.

What is so hard about moving the train a little so people can get in or out of their community.

The city but up gates between the communities and locks them like they are herding or fencing in cattle. 

Can someone explain why this keeps happening. Something needs to be done. Who will have the balls enough to do something about it.

God forbid an emergency happens.
