I wanted to comment on the issue of the Borkum Road Off-Road Truck Series. In 1990, I lived on a quiet, country road in South Spencer surrounded by farmland and forest. We moved there to attain a peaceful setting in which to raise our children, our horses, and enjoy the quiet of rural living. However, our peace and quiet was disturbed by a sand and gravel business which required huge sand trucks to pass back and forth every five minutes on our road every day. We formed a commity of neighbors to rally at the town meetings to fight for the right to peace and quiet, and for the safety of our children. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that other neighborhoods in our town joined us in our battle to stop the noise, the pollution that these trucks caused. My comment is that the Borkum Rd. residents might appeal to other neighborhoods in the Northern and western section of town to join them at town meetings. We won our battle because we were great in number and were persistent. I can understand how traumatizing it is to move into a neighborhood in rural Spencer, only to have it invaded by noise pollution and disturbance of a peaceful atmosphere. I want to join the number of people and voice my opinion that this track not be allowed to operate.
