Today in Tallahassee  Ryan Smart of Florida Springs Council and Cris Costello of Sierra Club organized a press release for No Roads to Ruin Coalition (NRTR), which is a group organized to stop the proposed new toll roads.

The new roads are unnecessary and would wreak havoc on the environment by fomenting development and urban sprawl.

Since the proposal came last spring, few people have shown enthusiasm other than road builders, and of course, a small number of people standing to make huge profits.

OSFR was well represented by President Mike Roth, who spoke, and board members Kristin Rubin, Bill Basta and your historian.

Comments by OSFR historian Jim Tatum.
-A river is like a life: once taken, it cannot be brought back-
