Carola is still Carola

The Carola has been at anchor off the Duluth piers. Although built in 2000, it has only been here once before, arriving last July (above). It is expected to come in later today to load grain at the CHS elevator. The J. W. Shelley arrived yesterday and is now loading grain at the Gavilon Elevator in Superior. The Shelley used to be called the Algocen, and the Gavilon used to be the Peavey. The Kaministiqua is loading grain at the CHS elevator in Superior. The CHS elevator used to be called Harvest States, and the Kaministiqua has been the Saskatchewan Pioneer, the Lady Hamilton and the Voyageur Pioneer. So far, wheat is still called wheat. Although there is durum wheat and spring wheat and winter wheat, both hard red and soft red winter wheat. Photo taken on July 09, 2007
