Detroit News Article

Today's Detroit News ( is running a great article called Rebuilding the Soo Locks. It details clearly the need for a new lock and the importance of the shipping industry to our economy and security.

You can click on the article and I'd like to hear your comments on the ideas expressed there.

Are any of you readers attending the ground breaking tomorrow for the work that is beginning on the Locks? I hear that Governor Granholm and our senators will be attending. I'll keep you informed as I learn more.

Only boat that I saw today was the AlgoSar. She is tied up to the Purvis docks on the Canada side of the River. Looks like she may be laying over waiting for a load.

Wet weather is forecast for the new lock ceremony tomorrow morning at 10:00 AM. Be prepared just in case. Temps will still be in the 50's so take a jacket.

Thanks Bill. Sounds like boat traffic is light this week. Must be everyone tried to get to the Soo for Engineer's Day last week.
