McCarthy goes unnoticed by many

The Walter J. McCarthy, Jr. came in for some repairs on Thursday before it could move over to Midwest Energy Resources in Superior to load coal. That done, the thousand footer went under the Lift Bridge about 12:30 on Saturday afternoon (pictured), in time to be ignored by many who, even though they had run 26 miles to get to the Marine Museum in Canal Park, had more important things to do than watch a boat, as in recover, sit, and rest, maybe even eat a snack or better yet, drink something.
