Boston Globe visits Gallipolis Locks and Dam

 Four days ago, the Boston Globe ran a story written by a reporter who went fishing with a Gallipolis, Ohio, resident at the Gallipolis Locks and Dam. It's behind a paywall, so I paid $1 for six months of access and (probably) all kinds of spam to come.

The thing that interests me about the story is that it gives no reason for being in the paper or online. I don't know why the Boston newspaper had someone at Eureka, Ohio (known locally as Chambersburg), to do that story.

As a crooked politician once said, any publicity is good publicity. Just get your name in the paper.

M/V Amber Brittany upbound ...

 ... on a blustery November day that threatened rain but didn't deliver.

Here it's pushing a full tow of empty coal barges past the remains of a partially dismantled coal dock that was taken out of service about 40 years ago.

American Duchess in the fog and under a bridge

 Not under the bridge yet, but it was about to be.

This was taken Wednesday morning before the boat's stop here in Huntington WV.
