What the heck! My lord, who makes the decisions to tear down the train piers? People of Pocahontas it's part of our heritage! They could of had a walking bridge crossing the Black River. Heard that the State of Arkansas heritage would had fund it. They have a name called: Rails to Trails! What a lost!!!!! We have people today just don't have any common sense! Very Sad!

They could made it with the train Depot. People would like to do something else like a walking trail. I have seen the Rails of Trails in Hot Springs. Beautiful!

It would have been great to have the caboose up on the bridge as a nice thing to look at when people drive right on through Pocahontas. If they do tear them down perhaps someone will get the rest of the old growth timber that was not burned when the river level was down. If someone on the city council would have had the idea to sell the timber rather than burning it. It could have added a bit to the cities coffers.

. I think it's a great idea! It would be very cool to have a walking bridge across the river. Any else exciting around here. I would donate $50.000 to get it started... How much would you danate?

You want a walking bridge to carry the weight of a caboose,who is going to pay for maintence/insurance,it sounds as though you dont understand what you are talking about.

Where did I mention having a walking bridge? I just stated that it would have been a nice photo op for ones passing through.

yes i agree with you i dont want to get out on a bridge built for walking with the weight of a caboose on it and someone will fall off a sue the city,there are some ppl that just have know knoledge of what it take to carry that type of weight in ice storms,wind storms,nor do they understand cost,because they have never experinced the cost of doing business,as you can see this person is wanting someone beside him/herself to pay for what they want,everything is ok if only someone will pay the bill,just not them,its just the way some ppl think.

We nneed something besides a dumb bridge,how are we going to profit from that,enough wasted money in this town even though the mayor is suppose to be a [REP.] or conservtive,either way our money could be spent more wisely than a bridge.

like a $7.5 mil water park thingy that 90% will never use.
we had a chance to save the bridge for less than a walkway or depot remodel cost but officials dropped the ball.
should of taken the now 1/4 mil depot and ugly concrete out of the river when they took the bridge.

How about they leave the bridge alone and tear down that ugly-ass wall in the river park. I'd gladly contribute to that.
have you seen the parks they all are going down hill.. Rusting roofs, weed in all parks flower beds... Bathrooms are all nasty trash cans full! Lake run down missing boards on dock.. My little girl got Hirt in swing. Roof leaking on about all buildings! The council and mayor are not doing their job! Community center closed early and open late! You want us to spend more money!!!! You can't keep up what you already have! Everything is going to pot! Go look at the Pocahontas Parks yourself and see what I see and you can tell that the parks need help! Spend more money?
