It’s an exciting day in Vernonia. In 1996 and 2007, the town's schools were wiped out in floods. After five years of fighting for money and holding classes in temporary buildings, the new kindergarten through 12th grade buildings opened today. Superintendent Ken Cox says they're still trying to get donations to help pay off the construction loans. They’ve received major funding from the Ford Foundation and Fred Meyer.
