Ohio River shrimp threatened

The BP oil spill occurred about a year ago, and now there's concern that it could affect a freshwater animal known as the Ohio River shrimp. There's a question about whether the Ohio River shrimp even lives in the Ohio River anymore, although a hundred years or so ago it did.

That wasn't supposed to happen

A restaurant boat comes sort of comes loose from its dock, spins around and bumps another boat. Maybe the restaurant boats and barges in the Cincinnati area should think about closing when the river is at or near flood stage. They seem to have some bad luck there lately.
