Build high-speed rail, not airport


A few weeks ago, President Obama reiterated his call for this country to invest in high-speed rail trains. For several years, I have been perhaps too quietly and certainly ineffectively pointing out through the local media that the tourist and working persons' corridor, now served by the 70-mile, two-lane state Highway 75 between Twin Falls and the Wood River Valley, is ripe for being served by high-speed rail.

I am passionate about high-speed rail for the Wood River Valley and Twin Falls corridor because it makes complete sense compared to the proposed relocated airport.
