First Saltie In Port

Another landmark day for the new shipping season in the port.   The first ocean going ship, or saltie, is in port now taking a load of grain from the Richardson elevator in Current River. The captain of the Federal Elbe will be presented with a top hat at a ceremony taking place this afternoon.  After that he will be taking the ship and its cargo to Casablanca, Morocco.
