To the Editor:
In regard to your editorial, “Oswego needs to upgrade rail crossings”: Illinois records show two of the crossings in Oswego to have railroad crossing lights/gates installed in the next few years for a mere $580,000, which is two sets of gates and 20 trips to the Bahamas for whoever is signing off on this thievery. In my book, the overcharges preventing crossing signals at other crossings is murder. By the way, there have been like seven people killed in the last month in Illinois at crossings waiting on this list. There are only two trains a day. Why not drop down gates on the front of the train or stop and flag orders?
