Subject: Re: Record Low water/Newspaper River Colums.


Now we're talking serious stuff, when a casino has to
close! They'll probably ask E.St.Louis to import enough
water to keep afloat, they ask for everything else (and
we give it to them). As for Dale's river column
question: we have nothing locally, just the occasional
article. In fact 2 years ago when Lock 15's gate broke
and effectively shut down the Mississippi shipping
system, there was nothing in the media. After the 2nd
day I phoned the editor of the newspaper which is
located on the river directly across from the L&D. I
suggested he look out his window at the big thing on
the deck barge - it was the lock gate, and he had a
national story under his nose and didn't know it. It
appeared in the paper the next day. That was the time
the AQ got trapped up here and spent 3 days in
Davenport. The only regular column I know of was in the
Quincy Herald-Whig by Carl Landrum, who died recently.
I'm not sure when he quit writing it, but it lasted
until 1990 at least. .........
