Letter about why is County Road 1 still rerouted ...

To the Editor,

Someone in the know explain to me why County Rd. 1 north through Spring Valley, which is currently under construction for three years, is still routed up to the Kingsland School and then west to Highway 63, then to County Road 8, and then back to Highway 63 again? Why isn’t it just routed to Highway 63 until it is routed back to County Road 1 again? This would reduce the extra stop and go at all of the stop signs in the current detour and save time and the chances for more accidents, especially where the detour connects back to Highway 16/63 by the Kwik Trip in Spring Valley. I am afraid there is going to be an accident there that could be as serious as Highway 16/63. It is a busy road some of the time during the day and night. I know it would sure save a lot of frustration for some of the drivers using this road who are not familiar with the time and effort saved by just using Highway 16/63. I see big semi-trucks trying to make the corner by the Kingsland School and how they almost have to move facing traffic out of their way to make this corner.

Just wondering who makes these decisions and why.

To the Editor, Stan Gudmundson’s fear of people who are different than us is legitimate: we do not know what to expect, we wonder if they will respect us and our culture and our mostly good government. We wonder how Syrian Orthodox Christians as .....
