MUNCIE, IN - A walking trail down busy River Road will proceed despite objections from landowners who do not want to give up their front yards for it.
Nearly $1 million will be spend on a pedestrian and bicycle trail from Morrison Road to County Road 500W. And that trail to help reduce auto emissions could begin by 2014.
Flo Lapin, one of the affected property owners, told of maintaining her property and right of way, adding she had a right to defend her property from government and planned to do just that,
Other residents questioned the project's cost while a Muncie woman, Kim Thompson said she supported the trail and had no problem putting on in her yard.

YORKTOWN, IN - The orange tractor planting corn stood out among the green trees and grass of Gary Prater's back 40 on Monday.
And it was retired veterinarian and neighbor Neil Perril helping out to give Gary's Garden that one last push before summer and fall.
Prater recently was laid up, but returned to the garden in time to harvest a bumper crop of new strawberries that are sweet and just the taste of the early garden season.
But Yorktown's well known organic Gardner says it will be a late garden with broccoli, cauliflower and other vegetables in October and even November that will surprise even the old farmers and farm to table crowd because of historic rain in April and a continued wet spring.
