Final trip

Fran Mullen, who lives along the Ohio River north of Crown City, Ohio, sends these photos of the towboats Indiana and Ohio on what we're told is their final trip down the river before being sent to South America.

The Indiana is closest to the photographer.

Bird in the grass

I'm no bird watcher or ornithologist or whatever. I just know that this bird was hopping around the public use area of the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam today with its mouth open constantly. But it made no noise, so it said nothing. It must be a newspaper editorial writer.
