Opening back up

Al Raper, owner of Al's Auto Service, looks on as the Court Street bridge reopenedFriday. "I'm really happy! I'm glad that the nightmare is over," Raper said. "I knew the construction was coming, so I put work ahead of schedule. Trying to move things in and out of my shop has been a challenge. I'm pretty happy about it, and I'm sure everyone in the neighborhood's going to be pretty happy about it." (Jon Decker/The Laconia Daily Sun photo)
