Two items in the news

President Trump will visit Cincinnati this week to urge investment in rebuilding the nation's lock and dam system.

Meanwhile, up the river, work on repairing and rebuilding part of the bridge connecting the town of St. Marys to Middle Island, the largest island in the Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge, has been delayed until next year at the earliest. The bridge now in use was part of the original Hi Carpenter Bridge, which was of the same design as the Silver Bridge at Point Pleasant.
