Just curious, what made you decide to move to Columbus? Will you still be able keep running your club in Greenwood?

There is an issue with
railroad behind my house.  The traffic is going to go from 8 trains per day to 22 and they will be twice as long. I've know about this for awhile, but
only heard rumors, so I assumed incorrectly that I would have more time.   I did some research and found out that it may be October.

I'm trading a drive to Columbus every week for an equal drive to Greenwood.  But it already takes me 15 minutes to
get to
Greenwood.  Now it will be 36
.   I'll be a mile south of the Columbus Chess Club, and I
save 30 minutes to my mother's place.

Best wishes,

I see what you mean. I knew about the tracks near your subdivision, but I didn't know the trains were that active. Well, your decision to move makes sense now. I'm relieved to hear it's not something personal or tragic necessitating the move. If I could pick one small town to live in, away from Indianapolis, it would be Columbus.

The train tracks wrap around Mill Race Park in downtown Columbus.  Because of a sharp bend, the trains will only be able to go 20 MPH through there.  There is much concern about the trains blocking traffic, especially on the west side of town where the tracks cross highway 46, which is the main entrance into the town.  This is thought to have such an impact on the city that they are going to build a 30 million dollar overpass there.

A Scientist Spilled 2 Drops Organic Mercury On Her Hand. This Is What Happened To Her Brain.

When I was young there were plastic maze toys with a drop of mercury inside.

Years ago I had an environmental activist knock my door. His agenda was that his organization wanted tighter government controls on mercury emissions. I wasn't particularly interested at the time.

When it comes to poisons, concentration is everything. What could be deadly in one dose could also be harmless in trace amounts. Chemical structure is also important.
