Anticipating its
demise, the
Courthouse (center)
was evacuated...
>>>


and stripped of
furnishings -- even
the window frames!
>>>


Town leaders decided
to change the course
of the river...

by secretly dynamiting
a nearby levee--
a federal offense!
>>>

The plan worked,

The town was saved,

and the identity of the
"demolition team"
