John J. Boland here instead of Silver Bay

Unless the Edward L. Ryerson departed on Sunday night, there was no traffic going in or out of the port yesterday. Today, the John J. Boland, seen above departing Duluth last July 4th, is making its first trip to the Twin Ports this season. It was originally set to load iron ore pellets at Silver Bay but it is now coming to the Twin Ports where it will load iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth. It spent the winter lay up at Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
