"Shovel Ready" But No Flights Departing

What's $750,000 between friends, anyway?

St. Cloud Regional Airport touts lots of amenities on its website—a cafĂ©, ATM, free wi-fi, free parking and a $5 million completely renovated terminal whose capacity went up dramatically from 30 to 200 travelers. There’s also a new $750,000 passenger boarding bridge secured with federal stimulus funds to keep travelers out of the elements while catching a flight. One asset, however, the newly renovated airport notably lacks—commercial flights and passengers....

Seems that commercial flights stopped last year. No demand.

I want my personal train to take me to that airport so I can see the (useless) new passenger boarding bridge.
