The Duluth Police Mounted Patrol is back in business and out on patrol. Here they are working the sidewalk in front of the World Headquarters of the Duluth Shipping News, next to the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge.

A balloon, a boat and a bridge

The Isadora is at anchor waiting to come in to load grain at CHS. The bridge is the bridge. And the balloon may or may not rise to the occasion.

Dewey’s Dumpster Delight

homboat
Bob Hom, formerly second in command at the DECC, recently retired, but Hom does not know the meaning of the word. When he isn’t out working on the crew of a Heritage tug , he is a builder of boats. His brother Dewey found this boat in a dumpster. Where some people see garbage, Bob sees another boat. He cleaned, sanded, filled and painted it to look like new, as you see above. I wrote an article about Bob and his boat building skills in the Winter 2011-12 issue of the Port Authority quarterly, North Star Port, which you can read here.  (page 5)  Thanks to Captain Tom Mackay (Ret.) for alerting me to this and taking the picture.
