I don't think that the intent is to scare people. The intent is to hold those who made decisions which deliberately increased risk to children's lives and also increase taxpayer costs on the order of $30 million dollars without real benefit, to be held fully accountable. These elected and appointed officials need to understand that they not only increased the cost to the community, they increased risk to children over a 50 year period. Neither outcome is acceptable.

i asked you before for documents claiming the cancer rate around here. where is it? where can i find that info? do you understand the difference between fact and opinion? if you are going to make a bold statement about that, be able to back it up with the facts. not your opinion. you always seem to spout of numbers but where is your proof? think of it as being a trial lawyer, its not what you know, its what you can prove. maybe then, people will take you a little more serious.

What I was appalaed at was, sitting on 146? Where 18 wheelers "fly" (not to mention regualar traffic) down it? WIll that section become a normal school zone going down to 20 mph? On a freeway? Personally I can't see how a school can safely sit there wtih children traveling to/from & have no incidents. What am I missing?

As part of the mitigation plan for traffic near the school the "risk consultant" suggested that the traffic speed be reduced to 50 mph and the light which was just put in at Warton Wheems be removed so that traffic could flow. Of course, neither of these will happen. What will happen is that construction is commencing on the flyover and traffic will be very dangerous in the whole area for some time to come.

I wouldn't mind seeing the data on the cancer rates myself. I hear Luekemia rates in Deer Park are high but I have never seen any numbers on it. Where do you go to get info like that?

Houston Area Lung Cancer Rates Higher Than Average
February 5, 2006
Courtesy: Houston Chronicle
When 68-year-old Lucie Wood tells someone that she is battling lung cancer, she is irritated that most automatically assume she is a smoker.
Terri Diaz, who contracted lung cancer three years ago at 41, also has grown tired of her illness being stigmatized as a "smoker's disease."

okay got it, i read it but it left alot questions unanswered. smoking was the big factor which could lead up to 87% of the causes. alot of factors go into play so its not just living here causing cancer. would like to see more recent study,also one that includes family history of cancer. would also like to see a comparison to other states like california or new york. okay, heavy,you delivered the info, good job!!
