Charles M. Beeghly still the Beeghly

Great Lakes captains and their crews who are coming to Duluth today must be very patient people. Some of them have waited for good weather at the other end of the lake for up to 4 days. The weather cleared and they are all coming here today, give or take an hour or a day or so. The Algowood came in last night to replace the Mesabi Miner at the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock in Superior. The Canadian Olympic may have come in to take the next cargo, and 5 more boats may arrive today to load coal. Above, the Charles M. Beeghly arriving on Sunday to load taconite. The Beeghly was going to be renamed the Hon. James L. Oberstar this spring. The name was even painted on the hull, but the Congressman said no, and the old name was repainted on her hull.
