I am very pleased to see that many people, and programs like MILES have taken up the challenge to see what can be done in developing the Portneuf river as it runs through Pocatello. I live on Pocatello's west side, just a block from the unsightly aqueduct that channels the Portneuf river through Pocatello. Saying that it has always been an eyesore to me is an understatement. It's hideous to look at, largely inaccessible, and tragic waste of a good river and the opportunities and services that go along with that. I would very much like to be a part of that effort. The Portneuf river has so much potential to bring beauty, joy, happiness, and prosperity to the community.
