A non-denominational chapel in Coos Bay is set to reopen two months after it was the target of an attempted bombing. The Prayer Chapel has been closed since the attempt sparked a small fire in early September. Restoration workers have repaired the smoke-damaged interior, and chapel founder Steve Plinski tells The World newspaper (http://is.gd/4RA4FW ) a rededication ceremony will be held Nov. 4. The attempted bombing triggered the largest federal law enforcement response to the South Coast in recent memory as roughly two dozen FBI agents came to downtown Coos Bay. The newspaper and the city of Coos Bay received letters claiming responsibility for the incident as well as an Aug. 23 bombing at the Mingus Park Vietnam War Memorial. The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction.
