Dear Editor:

It's been a good while since I've lived in Mount Carroll.

I've been reading the business news and wondered if my old home county is going to attempt to take advantage of the new connection being worked on between the United States/Canada/Mexico.

That sleepy little train track that goes through town is being merged into a railroad connecting North America with the main crossing on the Iowa side.

I would hate to see Carroll County or its towns let more opportunities pass, much like the departures of its progeny over the years.
