Alpena makes final visit of season

The Alpena is a regular visitor to the Twin Ports. Since 1996, it has brought cement here 140 times. It will be here today for the 14th and last time this season. Built as the Leon Fraser in 1942, it is one of the oldest and prettiest boats working the Great Lakes.
