Railroad needs bailout funding

Dear editor,

Since anybody or any company can get a bailout from the government, I think it is high time that one of their own get a loan or bailout, this being CSX Railroad. If they do not have enough money to fix the crossings in Thorsby or Jemison, it is high time they get a bailout.

Both cities and also the county says no one can work on these crossings but the railroad. I think it is past due time they work on them.

I have already replaced the struts on the front end of my car. If they can’t get the money to fix the crossing, let someone else fix them, and I don’t mean the person who put the gallon milk jug in one of the holes.
