Jim Wertz, writing in the March 14, 2018 issue of the ErieReader, notes that "kids who live south of the railroad tracks will have to make a choice that may literally be life or death..." He reminds us that "child safety is not an issue that requires public hearings, it is not an issue that should require years of debate, and it is not an issue that can be measured in dollars and cents. It is, quite simply, a basic civil right."
