New businesses and bad air
Sunday’s Bee had a couple of interesting articles which on paper had no relationship to each other, but in reality do have a strong connection.
The first was a column: McEwen: Diesel truckers should pay for bad air
The second was an article about new businesses on West Shaw: National businesses flock to Fresno’s West Shaw Avenue
In the opinion column, McEwen brings up the continuing problem of the valley’s bad air, and how it will be especially pronounced this week with “air alerts” being called.
The column hits on a few ideas I called upon a year ago such as tolling trucks and closing drive-thrus.
