Two 1,000-footers are expected in port today to load coal for Detroit Edison power plants in St. Clair, Michigan. The American Integrity was expected early this morning and should be loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. It will likely depart this afternoon, leaving the dock open for the arrival of the American Century tonight. The Edgar B. Speer, seen above departing Duluth on April 6th, 2004, is expected here today after battling thick ice on its way to the Soo. Upon arrival, it will load iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth for Conneaut.
