THE WEST NEWS…THE OLDEST BUSINESS IN WEST- ESTABLISHED IN 1889


Whoooooooh…big news alert in paper..the city is considering closing down 2 railroad crossings..has to do with our jupe mill and jupe feed…they use tracks to load up cars full of feed and some of the tracks need repair and as it is so costly they are considering closing 2 crossings so they can use one for loading…which is ok with me i guess as it is good for our little mill…but fuck..its hard enough to get across the tracks sometimes when there is a train stretched clear across town…we have to drive way down to the other end of town (maybe 6 blocks) and cross over…and then go the same amount of blocks back to where all the main stores are…will scan a map for you one of these days…any how, that will be a pain in the ass, but not as bad as living in a city of 100,000 people or more…2,500 people is nice…
