How do you feel about the Great Lakes Basin Railway. The path it follows and where it will start and stop. Does it concern my fellow Northern Illini or is my brain reading too much into it.

I have a lot of opinions on it. First, If I was a farmer and someone offered me 3 or 4 times the value of my land I would take the money and run! Get out of the cesspool of Winnebago County and IL! If I lived close enough that they wouldn't take my land but I had to live next to it, that is a different story...
Second, there will always be the need for progress, for infrastructure building and transportation improvements, that is a fact of life.
The residents of Boone County fought it off and I am sure the residents of Winnebago County will do the same thing.
Rockford and Winnebago County have a long track record of running off infrastructure projects. NIU, the Woodruff Freeway, the Air Guard, the Chicagoland Speedway, and many other projects that would have helped our city vastly. So this will be another notch in the NIMBY crowd's belt. Rockford is only going to be a mediocre second class city until their mentality changes.

No I understand your first point but it's not the inferstucture growth I have an issue with. But the prepper in me wondering why they take that path. That's all.
