Response to 'Peace broken on Saturday nights'          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

I am responding to the gentlemen that sent the letter opposing the racetrack noise on a Saturday night. [Letter]

WELL, I also live extremely close to the racetrack. NEVER has the noise been a problem. Sometimes you can even sit outside. It's actually a good thing that Lincoln has the opportunity to try to enhance the visitors to our community.

I also have worked in a nursing home that is very close to the track. MOST of the residents are in bed way before the feature races even begin, and believe me, MOST of them really probably don't even notice the NOISE...

[to top of second column in this letter]

I don't think it was fair for him to judge our community leaders for the SENIOR CITIZENS in the area, which most of them can't speak out.

THANK YOU for the "YES" vote. We need the growth to our community.

Helen Charron
