Four news items to start a Sunday morning

The Big Four pedestrian bridge project in Louisville, where they're converting an old railroad bridge to a pedestrian and bicycling bridge, has hit a bit of a snag. A small one, they say.


The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) has elected a new chairman -- Charles A. "Chuck" Duritsa of Hempfield, Pa.


The Courier-Journal of Louisville provides an update on the Olmstead Locks and Dam project, and it's not good.

The article itself, though, seems pretty thorough and well-written. If you have an interest in Ohio River navigation or even pleasure boating, or if you're a political animal interested in infrastructure needs vs. tax rates, check it out.


And Parkersburg, W.Va., now has its own nice park along the Ohio River front.
