Rain expected later this week could force a delay if it impacts the ability of construction crews to complete final preparations for the slide. Once the bridge is moved onto its permanent piers, it will take approximately a week to complete inspections, road connections to the bridge and other work, which means the bridge will remain closed until mid-April.

  • Tears over lost and found

    When the phone rings here at the newspaper, you never know who’s on the other end and what the person will say.
    That’s why we have an antacid dispenser in the break room. (Not really.)
    One day last week I got a call from a woman who sounded greatly distressed; she had lost her wedding rings.
    It happened several months ago when she was going through cancer treatment. She said the treatment muddled her brain, made her absent-minded and forgetful.
