News Midwest backs high-speed rail Ferry makes its first run MANISTIQUE, Mich. {AP) — The Beaver Islander ferry made its first run Sunday from the Lake Michigan island to Mahistique. "This is the first trip of what we hope will be many," said Jim Anderson, Schoolcraft County Economic Development director, as he welcomed about 50 passengers aboard the boat. • Officials are considering whether to have regular ferry service between the Upper Peninsula town and Beaver Island. Presently, the only regular ferry route is between tSe island and Charlevoix. Seafood fest a big success MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP> — Organizers of the Marquette Rotary West Seafood Fest say last weekend's event was among the best ever. The three-day event for the benefit of local charities took place at Mattson Lower Harbor Park. It drew tens of thousands of people, according to co-chairman Scott Jagger. CHICAGO (AP) — A 3,000- mile, high-speed train network is needed in the Midwest because cars are increasingly clogging highways and travelers need new ways to reach destinations, experts say. That forecast was contained in a draft study produced by Amtrak and nine state transportation departments, including Michigan's. The rail network, spanning nine states, could produce more frequent train service and cut travel time, experts said Monday. "As the region continues to grow, traffic congestion on area roadways will only worsen," said Lee W. Bullock, president of Amtrak Intercity, which operates 68 pasenger trains daily throughout most of the United States. "Many highways are becoming congested in urban areas, and air travel can be expensive for shorter distance trips," added James DeSana, director of the Michigan Department of Transportation. "A high-quality rail system can fill the needs of people traveling for business or pleasure between Midwest cities." The study envisions the network as a catalyst for economic development along the rail corridors. Passengers would be whisked along at top speeds of 110 miles an hour, faster than the 79 mph average in the Midwest now but far below the 300 mph achieved by state-of-the-art, magnetic levitation systems whose costs would be far higher. The system could cut travel time from Chicago to Detroit to four hours from the current six, while almost 90 minutes could be trimmed from the run from St. Louis to Kansas City. Increased frequency 'of service would vary, depending on route, according to federal officials. The proposed network would link cities in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin. Three Michigan routes would be upgraded: Detroit to Chicago, Port Huron to Battle :Greek and.ths Kalanaazoo-Grand -Rapids-Holland corridor., ...... Consolidation to be decided IRON RTVER, Mich. (AP) — Voters in Iron River, Caspian, Stambaugh and Mineral Hills will decide in November whether to approve a charter for the consolidated city of West Iron. It would take a majority vote in. each of the four municipalities for the charter to pass. The West Side Consolidation Committee, which has been working on drafting the proposed charter, recently completed the task of choosing a name for the proposed city. Art Koski of Caspian proposed West Iron. "It is a modified form of West Iron County, which was originated by the school district and was later adopted by other agencies such as the West Iron County Fire Department and the West Iron County Sewer Authority," Koski said. Under the charter, the city would be divided into four precincts, each selecting one commissioner. Residents would elect a mayor to a four-year term. One U.P. escapee captured The plan calls for spending an estimated $371 million on infrastructure improvements in Michigan, 80 percent of which would be earmarked for the Detro.it- Chicago route, according to state Transportation Department spokesman Gary Naeyaert. "Until we get the Detroit-Chicago route taken care of, the rest' is premature," Naeyaert told The Holland Sentinel in a report today. The draft study lays down a blueprint for developing such a system. But a commitment to spend the estimated $3.5 billion needed to bring it into full-scale operation can be made only by state governments and Congress. The study is expected to be one basis for the debate, according to Amtrak officials.

(AP) — The second of two convicted sex offenders who walked away from the minimum-security section of Marquette Branch Prison remained at large today, authorities said. Douglas A. Burger, 34, of Hillsdale County, who was serving 5 to 15 years for third-degree criminal sexual conduct, was apprehended Monday. Police said he was caught at about 2:30 p.m. near the village of Autrain after a citizen reported two strange looking men in the area. The second escapee, Ty J. Beilby, 38, fled the area on foot. He's 6-1, 220 pounds, with dark, shoulder-length hair, wearing cut-offshorts and a T-shirt. Canine units were dispatched to the area and a Department of Natural Resources plane was flying over the site. Beilby, of Delta County, was serving three to 10 years for criminal sexual conduct. They were roommates in the prison's trusty division, which is dormitory-style housing, Administrative Assistant George Pennell said. Officials realized they were missing during the noon roll call Sunday, he said. The section from which the men escaped is a level-one facility; one of the lowest-security lockups. "They met our requirements for minimum security. They were not behavior problems and they didn't have a lot of time left to serve," Pennell said. . . Before the escape, Beilby had an early release date of Nov. 11, 1999! Burger's early release date was July 31, 1999. Escaping from prison is a felony carrying a maximum of five years.
