The river was knocking on the back door of Cassens Bait Shop on West Main Street in Grafton Sunday, but, so far, the water has stayed out of the building and the business remains open. Owner Dave Cassens said he has been forced to vacate the building six times since he bought it in 1993, the year of the Great Flood. "The day I took possession, water was coming in the back door," Cassens said.
