Freighter Arthur Anderson arrives in Port

The famous freighter Arthur M. Anderson finally made it into port for winter lay-up on March 4.  It's month-long futile slog from Indiana to Ohio to pick up cargo ended with it returning to Sturgeon Bay, WS with empty holds.  It looks like this winter's ice build up on the Great Lakes will be a repeat of last year's deep freeze when the shipping slowdown cost 4000 jobs and $705 million in economic losses.  See full article here
