Good news: the Buckeye is coming to Duluth with a load of limestone. Good news because it just came out of a long time lay up that included all of 2003. That is a good sign for shipping on the Great Lakes, the economy, and also the owner, Oglebay Norton. They are in bankruptcy and need all the help they can get.
