Redevelopment in Columbia Gorge Stirs Passion

SEATTLE, WA (2008-03-12) One of the scenic wonders of the Northwest is at a crossroads. At least, that's how some people living "in and near" the Columbia River Gorge see it.

The bi-state Columbia Gorge Commission wrestled inconclusively all day yesterday (Tuesday) with a proposed new destination resort. Tonight, a large new tribal casino is up for discussion by a different agency. Those projects - and several others - could bring new energy to the national scenic area... or ruin it, depending on your point of view. KPLU's Tom Banse has more from the scene.  A link to the audio file from NPR can be found here.
