What do coal and oil trains bring Cheney?

Letters to the Editor

How does Cheney benefit from coal and oil trains?

Cleaner air?  Not so much.

Healthier population? Not so much.

Quieter nights? Not so much.

Safer and clearer intersections? Not so much.

Priority passage for emergency vehicles? Not so much.

Fewer fires? Not so much.

Improved rail access for Amtrak and farm produce? Not so much.

Increased security from derailments or spills? Not so much.

Better fishing and outdoor recreation? Not so much.

More economic development? How much?

Increased revenue for Cheney? How much?

More jobs for Cheney residents? How many, what type for how long?
