Unwelcome Train 

Pin It

I was browsing through a past issue today and saw the Hits & Misses column title “Trolley to Nowhere” [July 11, City Weekly].

People are still thinking that this is going to be a quaint little trolley going down 1100 East. Unless they make a dramatic change from what comes up through my neighborhood along the old rail lines just off of 2100 South to Sugar House, it’s going to be a train.

I went to the neighborhood meeting they had here and it was being called a trolley. When I asked the very direct question, “What is it?” the answer was, “Oh, actually it is going to be a train, just like the one along 300 West.” Next question, “Is it going to be noisy?” “Oh, yeah, real noisy.”

No “hopping on,” no “quaint,” no anything that this wording is making the community think it is.

We have had a bunch of people already sell their homes and move away because of what they learned at our local meeting.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
