Cascadia residents met Friday with State Sen. Mae Yih and representatives from several government agencies in their continuing effort to have Cascadia State Park Bridge reopened.

The meeting lasted nearly an hour and those present discussed three options to get the bridge opened. Since the bridge was closed three weeks ago, park traffic has been routed off Hwy. 20, across the Short Covered Bridge and past a small group of residences on Cascadia Drive.

A local resident is being hailed as a hero by the Sweet Home Fire Department after rescuing a neighbor from his burning duplex.
