A news conference is scheduled this afternoon to announce that Little Rock will host a national conference on recreational trails next November. It's a big deal and has a good purpose -- to expand the network of biking, hiking, skiing, snowmobile, four-wheeler etc. trails across the country.
Maybe this coming event will light a fire under the Clinton Foundation on conversion of the old railroad bridge by the library (pictured) to a pedestrian/bike link envisioned as the eastern end of the bicoastal river trail that stretches to the Big Dam Bridge on the west. Silence on that promised project continues to be deafening. Right, Gene?
