Convert just unused rail line to trail

In your May/June issue, a letter from Ken Kaufmann of Skaneateles has provided what I believe to be the correct solution to the entire debate over an Adirondack rail trail between Lake Placid and Old Forge.

Just convert the unused portion between Saranac Lake and Old Forge into a trail for now and everyone gets a piece of the pie.

Compromise is a wonderful tool and should help get this conversion approved.

I do hope so, since I am seventy-five and would like to bike this trail in my lifetime.

Thanks for all the great pro/con articles regarding this ongoing rail-to-trail discussion.
