Racist graffiti has shown up at the isolated Ponderosa Bridge on the north fork of the American River. Rafting company president Steve Liles said he spotted the graffiti this past weekend on the bridge, located about 7 miles north of the American River Confluence. Liles, of W.E.T. River Trips, said the graffiti included white supremacist gang and Nazi references. The graffiti was reported to the state Parks Department’s Auburn State Recreation Area and is expected to be removed as soon as possible, Liles said. – Gus Thomson
