Written on Megasite Aftermath: Effort Now is to Stop the Intermodal in New Market with Focus on County Government:

Sunflower Power!!! Please, plant sunflowers, wear sunflowers! The sunflower is the symbol of JCT and wearing them shows your support, just like wearing a green ribbon shows your support of SOFAH. We citizens of Jefferson county need the SUNSHINE on our county government.
Very factual article! Kudos! One oversight is that New Market Elementry school is literally a stone's throw from the footprint of the site. Noise, dangerous traffic, air pollution, threat of major train derailments, etc... and sitting right there on top of it- several hundred school children. Did you know that if all the trucks that Norfolk Southern says are going to be using this site each 24 hours were lined up end to end they would stretch over ten miles? Now, if you want some 'reality' programing?? Just show up at a Jefferson County Commission meeting! The characters are just so real to life! Last meeting was conducted in a total power blackout! The courtroom has NO lighted exit signs or any 'emegency' type lighting. Finally one commissioner did go to his work truck and bring back a flash light. Everyone else struggled on with light source from eletronic devices. The citizens who came to participate in OUR government??? We were left in the dark and could not hear anything that went on (budget was the topic!!) After more than an hour, I went home totally disgusted. There are a minority number of commissioners who do a great job of being knowledgable and informed. And, they do challenge the 'good ol' boys club' of EDOC and Chamber of Commerce. But, the majority just ask how high when the chairman cracks his whip and says JUMP! Since the EDOC (an NGO who gets 160K county tax $ and has ZERO accountability) tried to obliterate my home and community with that Megasite I have attended every county commission meeting. Will be doing that until I draw my last breath, too, just to protect myself from their terrorism!! Anyone want to know more? Check out the SOFAH and JCT websites for future meetings. Unlike EDOC and Chamber of Commerce, our meetings are open to public and SUNSHINES on us all!!!
Have a blessed day. If you ate some food this morning?? HUG a farmer and say thank you! Get out and enjoy our green open spaces before EDOCs and Chamber of Commerces pave them all over and render it a hell hole.
