Coal is still the big cargo. There is not as much back up as yesterday to get to the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock in Superior, but it will still be busy over there. The James R. Barker came in yesterday from the anchorage and will probably leave sometime this morning for Detroit Edison. The Canadian Olympic should also be leaving today with coal, going to Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. It was built in Port Weller, Ontario in 1976, the year the Olympics were held in Montreal. The games also provided the name for the new boat. This is its 15th trip here this year. It is scheduled to be back here on January 6th for at least one more load of coal before the season closes. The CSL Assiniboine is expected to load taconite at the Burlington Northern dock in Superior. Above, it is doing the same in July, 2005.
