Scenic River Trail flowing smoothly

Friday's Bobcast features the latest developments from the Alabama Scenic River Trail. Fred Couch, the brainchild of the river trail and pictured third from left, gave The Star on update on the project's progress Wednesday afternoon. He was joined by, from left, Ken Deal of Alabama Power, state Sen. Del Marsh, R-Anniston, and Charlie Doster, who is active on the Alabama Scenic River Trail board.

Plans for a June 2008 launch are going swimmingly. Once completed, an ambitious paddler could cover 631 miles from Northeast Alabama to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Friday Bobcast will be uploaded later this evening.
