Did railroad spray hurt anyone else in 2013?

An open letter to the residents of the Rupert and Rainelle area:

Were you (or anyone you know) affected by the spray that was applied along the railroad tracks on July 15, 2013? Did you have trouble breathing, eyes burning, irritated nose/throat or have to see a doctor?

Did you lose your garden, shrubs, trees or bushes? Do you have proof of those losses or injuries (i.e., did you see a doctor or take photos of the damage)?

If so, we would like to hear from you. Perhaps together, we can find an attorney who would be willing to take this case to court for damages suffered. Because we were also affected by this spray that was used.

Please contact us with a brief description of your injuries and/or losses at or write to us at P.O. Box 1147, Rupert, WV 25984. Please include contact information such as your phone number and the best time to contact you.

Frank and Margaret Zibura
