In The Region:

The bridge that five anarchists allegedly targeted in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park cuts near Brecksville’s Scenic Railroad station, a favorite fishing spot for Northeast Ohio, and a pair of nesting bald eagles. 

All of which make it a bizarre target, says John Keller, who lives in nearby Sagamore Hills.

“It seems a ridiculous target to somehow associate this with corporate America.”

Another Sagamore resident, Mike Garcar, uses the park  regularly.

“I always come down here and run on the towpath trail and, actually, run this same route under this bridge. And it’s crazy. You don’t think something like this is going to happen in a small town like Sagamore Hills. It’s mind boggling.”

Still, he says, he won’t let the terrorism allegations change his routine.

“Just because someone says there’s a possible terrorist attack in my city, I’m not going to let them dictate my life. I’m going to go about my daily life and show they don’t have control over me.” 

The FBI and U.S. Attorneys Office say the five men planted what they believed were C-4 explosives at the bridge supports Monday night, and tried to detonate it remotely. They say the five were disgusted by corporate America and the government.
