Let’s win, not fight

May 31, 2013
By Lee Keet , Adirondack Recreational Trail Advocates

Brian Mann recently wrote (The In Box, NCPR news blog, May 23) that there are "very cool, passionate, community-minded people" on both sides of the rail-trail debate. I subscribe to that view. I believe that the increasingly bitter side arguments (Are there alternate bike paths? Will new freight possibilities arise? Is Pullman service the rail savior? Are the costs and economic impacts projected by either side real? Do trail advocates have a secret agenda? Could rails be put back if taken up even temporarily?) are dividing those community-minded people when they should be working together.
