News Release


PADUCAH, Ky. - On-scene assessment teams have reported the maximum estimated potential clarified slurry oil released from the tug collision is now 250,000 gallons, Thursday.

The maximum potential spill has been reduced because the two remaining partitions aboard the affected barge were reportedly secured.
A Coast Guard HC-144 Ocean Sentry fixed wing aircraft conducted an over flight earlier today, which revealed a five-mile discoloration beginning at the impact site.

A safety zone is in place on the Mississippi River, and currently closed to all traffic except response vessels between mile markers 939-922. A queue is in place, six up bound and nine down bound.

Coast Guard Sector Ohio Valley watchstanders received a call about a collision between two towboats at mile marker 937 at 8:22 p.m. Wednesday.

The Coast Guard is working with the barge owner and SWS, an oil spill response organization, to determine the amount of slurry oil that has been discharged.

Mississippi River Near New Boston, Illinois

Statue Of Black Hawk Arrived On New Boston Riverfront........


The hand crafted, life sized wooden statue of Sauk Warrior Black Hawk has been erected along the riverfront of New Boston, Illinois.  The wooden statue was designed by Moline based artist, Rob Storm.


Storm says that he sort of went with the flow, in that he had a few ideas of when he wanted to do.  Storm added that he wanted Black Hawk to have an intense face, that also looked protective. Black Hawk was native of the former Yellow Banks Territory, which includes New Boston.


Storm is already working on his new statue, a life sized wooden likeness of Abraham Lincoln, who surveyed New Boston in 1834........


Click here to read this news story from





From Wikipedia Encyclopedia

Black Hawk, (1767 – October 3, 1838) was a war leader and warrior of the Sauk American Indian tribe in what is now the Midwest of the United States. Although he had inherited an important historic medicine bundle from his father, he was not a hereditary civil chief. Black Hawk earned his status as a war chief or captain by his actions: leading raiding and war parties as a young man, and a band of Sauk warriors during the Black Hawk War of 1832.

During the War of 1812, Black Hawk had fought on the side of the British against the U.S., hoping to push white American settlers away from Sauk territory. Later he led a band of Sauk and Fox warriors, known as the British Band, against European-American settlers in Illinois and present-day Wisconsin in the 1832 Black Hawk War. After the war, he was captured by U.S. forces and taken to the eastern U.S. He and other war leaders were taken on tour of several cities.  click here to continue reading

On August 26th, the Spirit of Peoria Paddlewheel Boat will be presenting something a little different on their Mississippi River cruises:  a cabaret-themed cruise.

Lake Of The Ozarks

Shootout On The Strip Returning To Lake Ozark........


After a two years at the Laurie Fairgrounds, the Shootout Street Party will be heading back to the Bagnell Dam Strip.  On Wednesday, April 8, Race Director Ron Duggan made the announcement during a Shootout meeting at Captain Ron's Bar and Grill.


Back in 2013, the event left the strip following a crackdown on an open alcohol container ordinance by the Lake Ozark Board of Aldermen.  At the time, businesses on the Strip could not get behind a proposed "Temporary Outdoor Consumption Permit" that the Board required.


The Laurie Fairgrounds proved to be an adequate venue for the event, however, there was a big problem with dust.  Apparently, powerboaters were getting frustrated about spending quite a bit of money getting their boats to shine, only to have them end up dirty following one day at the fairgrounds........
