Letter to the editor: Train service worth the effort

Just picked up my loving, soon to be 80-year-old mother-in-law at our Middlebury train station. COVID-19 kept her apart from my wife too long, and in the prior years we drove to Albany, N.Y. or Rutland, Vt. in whatever weather conditions. The look on her face when we picked her up less than a mile from our home was pure elation. Really could not put a dollar amount on it, because some things that are just right you cannot. As a full-time Vermonter here in Middlebury, I, as well as my community, persevered through the construction process. No regrets, no rear-view mirror, and nothing personal, but I take very little advice about being “environmentally friendly” from the state of Ohio.
