Proposed Rail Link a Train Wreck

Here's a piece I wrote recently for Florida Today on the Canaveral Port Authorities proposed rail extension. Not only does it call for them to build 11 miles of rail over and through an area that's been protected since the early days of the space program, but it also eventually calls for them filling in 50 acres of the same area to create a fourth turning basin. Hard to believe projects like this are still being proposed. If you'd like to voice opposition to this, go here. You can also learn more on Facebook on the No Fill, No Kill page.
