Two quick items

Here's some more on the new AEP towboat Mike Weisend. I've got to get on AEP's news list. Wait, I thought I was. Oh well.


The Ohio River ferry at Sistersville, W.Va., was saved by a $25,000 cash infusion from the state when it looked like the season would shut down early because of money problems.
