Letter to the editor: Heroic action

To the editor:

Ed Daniels, Lecompton Township trustee, is a true governmental hero! As Trustee, he was asked to retroactively sign a permit agreeing to the brutal destruction of trees along the Scenic River Road. For three months he listened to the voices of the local citizens and landowners and withstood pressure from various sources to sign the document. Currently, a one-inch diameter underground power line is being installed on the north side of the BNSF railroad track instead of along the north side of the scenic road as originally proposed.

A big “Thanks” is due all parties involved who agreed to this change which should prevent further destruction of the Scenic River Road!
