Recreation Mecca Lawsuit
File--In this Aug. 2, 2010, file photo, a kite boarder sails along the Columbia River in Hood River, Ore. The town of Hood River is one of America's premiere spots for recreation lovers. Located on the scenic Columbia River, it has become a mecca for windsurfers, kiteboarders and cyclists, and has prospered because of it. But environmentalists say the latest development plan goes too far - building a 45,000 square foot hotel, a sprawling new parking lot, and other amenities threaten endangered salmon, and they bare filing a lawsuit to try and stop it.
