Proposed plans for bike across Everglades

 A 'Black top Bike Trail' will lead to Golf-carts, then Motor Scooters, then Motorcycles, then ATVs and so on!

We need to protect our "Water Supply" Wild-Life and the Land?

Our state is already selling our drinking water to the highest bidder twice as fast as it can replenish itself!

TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) - Florida voters have passed a measure that designates billions of dollars to conservation efforts over the next 20 years.

This bike trail is a "BACK DOOR" opportunity for this "Greedy Congress" to be able to end up selling the Everglades to "Big Business!"

In spite of what the public wants for "OUR LAND!"

Bike trail across the Everglades draws protests

A bike path across the Everglades, even a green one intended to do little damage to the fragile ecosystem, is drawing fire from a group of indigenous people and other critics who say the proposed 76-mile long ribbon of asphalt is an insult to them and nature.

“It opens the door to more development in the Everglades,” said Betty Osceola, a member of the Miccosukee Tribe, which lives in the Glades. “Once you give them that door and open it, they’re going to walk right on through and keep opening more and more doors. It won’t stop.”

The Associated Press declared Amendment 1 passed on Tuesday. With about half the expected votes counted, the amendment had 75 percent "yes" votes to 25 percent no. It needed 60 percent of the vote to pass.
