Still no ID of body found in river 2 months ago 14 hours ago More than two months after a woman's body was found along the banks of the Mississippi River near the northeast Missouri town of Hannibal, her identity remains a mystery. Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn told the Hannibal Courier-Post ( that police are no closer to identifying the woman than they were when the body was found in September. Shinn believes the woman was not from the Hannibal area. He says one possibility is that she was in the country illegally. There was some evidence that she toured the Mark Twain Cave two days before the body was found. The cave is south of Hannibal, not far from where the body was discovered. ___ Information from: Hannibal Courier-Post,

I've biked from my driveway to the Mississippi river in 4.5 days. 4. I walked on Miller Park's and Lambeau Field's turf in the same year. 5. I need to do the Appalachian Trail. Hoped for a through hike, but may have to settle for segments. 6. I am traveling to Ireland with my family and parents next year. 7. I don't deserve what I have on one level, but have earned it in spades on another. 8. I have never stepped foot in a Walmart. Never will.

Save to my tree IOWA The state of Iowa borders in the north on Minnesota, in the east on Wisconsin and Illinois, in the south on Missouri and in the west on Nebraska and South Dakota. Iowa's total area comprises 55,045 square miles. It is almost entitrely a prairie with wooded areas on the edges of the rivers. It forms a well-watered plain with many small lakes in the north. The terrain slopes toward the Mississippi and the Missouri Rivers from it highest elevation of 1,400 feet in the northwest. Iowa is an agricultural state like Ohio and Illinois and is destined soon  to surpass those two in importance in that regard. The terrain is gently undulating and characterized by deep, rich soil. Only two per cent of the entire surface of Iowa is not suitable for agriculture. The state also has important coal deposits, iron ore, commercial clay, gypsum, marble, peat, and lead and tin mines which also yield silver. The climate is very healthy though the weather often changes rapi ...

seeing how everyone is doing this. and I got a 7. So 7 things you may not know about me because I've had a really crazy life…. enjoy In 1995 I got a gig with Van Halen to be a apprentice roadie for their 'Balance' world tour that started March 11, 1995 in Pensacola, Florida. After a slow start picking up trash, my job was changed to help Sammy and Eddie during the shows. They would point out a girl from the stage, and I was to then take them to the blue tent that was under the stage so that they could do what wanted. That’s why sometimes Eddie would come up on stage wearing nothing but a robe. I only had sex with 1,134 different women during that tour. When the tour was over I decided to slow my life down and went to school at CSU focusing on women's studies. On May 15, 1995 in the middle of the Van Halen tour, when they were in Sacramento, California I got to meet Jay Roach who was the director for Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. Because I hooked him up with what happens at the Blue ...

All my brothers, aunts and uncles, and cousins live in the West
These pics taken on our way out to Arkansas. Ella loved the rock layers that we saw as we climbed up into the Ozarks. The first pic here was taken as we crossed the Mississippi River. Looks like it is going dry. We entered Arkansas on the southeastern side. It was real trashy in a lot of places down there. I wonder if people who litter will finally be happy when they are wading in it? Trash draws rats, rats carry fleas that carry the plague. Filth breeds disease. Please don't litter. I realize that most of these pics are boring, but I am posting them for the family so they can see how the land changes as ones goes west. As we neared our destination in Bull Shoals, the mountains just got prettier and the landscape was clean. They tell me that there is no work out there, and one must not go just anywhere in the mountains as it is dangerous because of illegal crops. I wish I had better pics, but this is the best my camera will do from a moving vehicle. LOL
I use 3 sites Quad City Area Exchange, Moline Mississippi River Swap & Quad City Buy & Sell to list items. Also I list items on FB. I have had several ppl say they are interested then they back out. One said they would pickup an item then turn around and said they needed to pay for car repairs and backed out. I was also told I bought some brand new boots and the first in line must not got back to them so I was next in line and she listed them as still available. I said I would take them. Then I was told the other person decided they wanted them. Then she had another pair of new boots and I said I'd take them. She didn't show up. I text her and ask if she was close and I stayed as long as I could since I had Dr. Appt. I told her I had an appt. So I told her sorry it didn't work out. It ticked me off.

I stopped off to do a metal detecting hunt in Audubon Park, Wednesday, after I delivered a new foster dog to one of our volunteers. I found another ring within five minutes of my hunt! But it's nothing special...just an aluminum ring stamped Hong Kong. LOL I've been impressed with my luck there the past two hunts. The Mississippi River is very low right now. I'm thinking about walking the banks by Baton Rouge tomorrow to see what I can find. I want more silver coins! :-)

By Emily Main, Prevention One fish, two fish, bad-for-you-fish. Yes fish, no fish, red fish…OK fish? Our oceans have become so depleted of wild fish stocks, and so polluted with industrial contaminants, that trying to figure out the fish that are both safe and sustainable can make your head spin. "Good fish" lists can change year after year, because stocks rebound or get depleted every few years, but there are some fish that, no matter what, you can always decline. The nonprofit Food and Water Watch looked at all the varieties of fish out there, how they were harvested, how certain species are farmed, and levels of toxic contaminants like mercury or PCBs in the fish, as well as how heavily local fishermen relied upon fisheries for their economic survival. These are the 12 fish, they determined, that all of us should avoid, no matter what. PLUS: Which packaged goods aren't packed with toxins or preservatives?

Test your knowledge by reading some of the fun facts below—you may be surprised? •Modern-day astronomers say that the famous Star of Bethlehem wasn’t a star at all.

St. James council goes on record against terminal site By Kate stevens Special to The Advocate November 21, 2013 0 Comments VACHERIE — The St. James Parish Council endorsed a resolution Wednesday opposing the proposed site of Wolverine Terminals LLC’s crude oil terminal and blending operation in Paulina after residents objected to industry operating in a residential area. The St. James Parish Council in May had unanimously endorsed Wolverine Terminals to participate in the Louisiana Enterprise Zone/Quality Jobs Program for potential tax breaks. But nearly all the councilmen sided with residents of Paulina and Grand Point when they approved the resolution Wednesday during a Parish Council meeting. The resolution states the proposed construction of Wolverine Terminals conflicts with the future planned development of residential neighborhoods, causes health concerns to existing residents within close proximity of the proposed facility and will increase congestion and ongoing traffic problems in that are ...

The Clues to a Future Crisis Are Usually Hiding in Plain Sight (Excerpted from an article by Jim Welsh, with David Martin and Jim O'Donnell, in “Global Economic Intersection”, November 12, 2013 In coming months we're going to highlight a number of crises that may emerge in coming years. If and when they make the evening news, the reaction will be one of surprise even though the clues to each crisis were likely hiding in plain sight well before the event. Inspiration for this series comes from the housing crisis, which led to the 2008 financial crisis. Although most investors were surprised by the housing crisis, the clues to the potential problem were hiding in plain sight in 2006 and 2007. For instance, according to the National Association of Realtors, the ratio of median home prices to median income held near 3.2-to-1 between 1965 and 2000, as mortgage lenders restricted mortgage payments to one-third of a homebuyer's income. Low interest rates and lending standards for liar's loans pushed ...
Lino Garcia Jr. a professor emeritus at the University of Texas-Pan American writes the following on the missing history of Hispanic contribution in textbooks: "Few history books fully explain the vast contributions of Hispanics, through many centuries, in developing the United States. With a few exceptions, most texts glorify events after 1845 and leave out much covering the years before. Thus, one sometimes must return and trace the Hispanic presence that has always been part of this country. In many cases, our 21st-century obsession with undocumented immigrants sometimes clouds the vast and long-lasting Hispanic presence among us. Long before the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth Rock, explorer Ponce de León was the first Hispanic to set foot on present-day American soil in 1512, exploring Florida, and about four years later, Capt. Alonso Pineda first mapped the coast of México to include present-day Texas. Explorer Vásquez de Ayllón was the first Hispanic to establish a village, San Miguel de Guadalupe ...

There's a campfire burning on the Mississippi River bank. My old pickup speakers are cranking out alot of Hank.
The Mississippi River was rising, just like it does every spring, bringing with it all the mud and pollution from all the Missouri River feedlots and the Ohio and Mississippi River industries. It was rising well above the flood stage, and the levee needed some extensive repair work, so there was a need for a lot of sandbags. It was a good rain coming down, cleansing, warm, and steady. The day was quiet, Mr. Brown said, “We got time for a quick little story here, something a little lighter.” He looked at the men. Herman was smoking a Marlboro cigarette, and not even trying to act like he was working. Mr. Brown just looked at him, and didn’t say a word, just kept looking at him. Herman shifted in his seat. Then he put his cigarette out. Then he wiped his face with his hand, and Mr. Brown steady looking at him. Finally, he couldn’t take any more, and said, “I got a story, kinda short, but I got one.” Mr. Brown said, “I thought you might.” Hermann was a big man, mixed Black and German, a reade ...

Getting ready to head into town for a talk at the Lion's Club lunch meeting. Going to talk about our new temporary exhibit on the Civil War in Midwest.

Went for a Sunday drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway. It follows the Natchez Trace: "Largely following a geologic ridgeline, prehistoric animals followed the dry ground between the salt licks of central Tennessee to grazing lands southward and the Mississippi River. Native Americans used many early footpaths created by the foraging of bison, deer and other large game that could break paths through the dense undergrowth. In the case of the Trace, bison traveled north to find salt licks in the Nashville area. After Native Americans first began to settle the land, they began to blaze the trail further, until it became a relatively well-worn path. Numerous Prehistoric indigenous settlements in Mississippi were connected by the Natchez Trace. Among them were the 2000-year-old Pharr Mounds of the Middle Woodland period, located near present-day Tupelo, Mississippi." The most interesting part was about the death of Merriweather Lewis, of Lewis and Clark fame, and the controversy surrounding it. Some have s .. ...

USGS report on Mississippi River nitrates contains a little good news, mostly bad news, and multiple complex factors
When you think of St Louis, does your mind go immediately to sports, such as the first U.S. Olympic games in 1904, or the St. Louis Cardinals? Maybe your first thought is its importance in U.S. history; the Gateway Arch or the Mississippi River. However, for many Americans, including a host of famous people and celebrities, St. Louis is just home sweet home. Although no persons life, famous or not, can be condensed to a few short lines, I will try to highlight a few key areas in some well-known people's lives that I hope you'll enjoy reading. So why not kick off your shoes and take the time to read about so many that have come from St. Louis and have made a name for themselves. How many people do you recognize?

Winfield Scott Schley (9 Oct 1839 - 2 Oct 1911) rear admiral in the United States Navy and the hero of the Battle of Santiago de Cuba during the Spanish-American War. Civil War-Born at “Richfields” (his father's farm), near Frederick, Maryland, Schley graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1860, and went as midshipman on board the frigate U.S.S. Niagara to China and Japan. On his return in 1861, the American Civil War was in progress. He was made master, and was assigned to the Potomac of the Western Gulf Squadron until 1862. He then served on the sidewheel gunboat U.S.S. Winona of that Squadron, and later on the sloops U.S.S. Monongahela and U.S.S.

I Stole This From My Boy Fabi Aguila, But It Makes Total Sense...Anyone notice how when Kayne proposed to Kim Kardashian how small the ring was. The ring was smaller than the one Kris Humphries gave her, and Kayne is worth way more than Humphries is. Just let's you know what he really thinks of Kim. My mom always said you can always tell how a man values his woman by the type and size of the ring. Sorry, but in my opinion Kim Kardashian is not housewife material. She's been ran though more times than the Mississippi River runs through New Orleans
Models are coming into better agreement today taking a strong low from the Panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma and rapidly pushing it NNE towards the Great Lakes just in time for Halloween. Ahead, there is a strong warm front with a fairly focused area of strong isentropic lift Scattered Showers, perhaps heavy rain... Tuesday PM into Wednesday. Then we enter the warm sector by late Wednesday. Thursday, as main low approaches Lake Michigan it will be in the process of deepening (approx: 1003 mb to 996 mb), this raises the concern of Severe Weather as Low Level Jet amps up in response to the deepening along the attendant front that will be advancing east along the Mississippi River... at the least heavy rain appears likely, severe weather QLCS-type is possible in this scenario... this is a full week out still, but big concern is this lands on Halloween... Normally, I am not so quick to throw out severe weather probabilities, but given the continuity across models atm and the power behind the trough we're deali ...

LATE OCTOBER MISSISSIPPI RIVER FISHING REPORT Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 41° - 45° F Water Temp: 51° - 55° F Fished the last 2 days with Dave, Tim and Mike. The guys are from Indiana, and stopped off to fish Pool 9 a couple of days on their way to SD to hunt. Yesterday we started out fishing walleyes, but the weeds prevented a good presentation. We did manage a pretty nice bag of fish, smallmouth, largemouth, white bass, sauger, crappie and bluegills. Today we decided to fish for bass, and the guys did real good, boating 15 to 20 fish, the largest around 3 pounds. Caught them on crankbaits and jigs. They wanted a few more fish for a fry while out west, so we fished a couple of hours. They kept 21 total, bluegills and perch. Still getting bluegills, but the size seems to be going down from what we were catching a couple of weeks ago. Still some nice ones though. These cold, windy days have the water temp. down into the low 50's. Still lots of good fishing ahead! Thanks for reading my reports, and hav ...

Waterfowl season for the central zone opens this Saturday and according to yesterday's aerial inventory, ducks are pouring into the Illinois River valley. Check out the latest numbers at www.bellrose.org and here's what Aaron had to say about the latest census: October 23rd, 2013 – Aerial Waterfowl Inventory Blog Wow, this week’s inventory of the Illinois River had 360,860 total ducks which was 167% greater than the 10-yr average for 3rd week in October. This is an astonishing number of ducks for an October flight, and it exceeded the fall peak number of ducks along the river in 16 of 65 years of data collection. Total ducks this week were 43% higher than the 10-yr average for mid-November. I observed more American green-winged teal, gadwall, and northern shovelers this week than have ever been observed along the Illinois River in October, and it was the 2nd highest number of northern pintail ever observed during an October flight. Amazingly, I still had 7,610 blue-winged teal on the flight; normally ...

I wanted to let y'all know that I will be out of touch for the next few days. Starting tonight at 6PM I will be on a silent retreat until Sunday evening. This is an annual event sponsored by the Alumni Association of my high school, De Smet Jesuit High School. This is certainly not my first spiritual retreat but it is my first silent retreat. I am looking forward to spending this time in quiet with the Lord in the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River in Southeastern St Louis County. I'm asking my friends to keep me in prayer while I discern how to witness the Gospel in my role as partner, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend. May His peace be with you and may He grant us all His grace.

You can make a difference and I imagine, you are. Imagine pulling tires, refrigerators, washing machines, and pianos from a river. Well, one man is doing that with volunteers along the Mississippi River. He saw no one doing it, so he did it, with a small grant and vision. He has removed 67,000 tires from the river. Yes, you read that correctly! It's messy and dirty work but he and his volunteers recycle and remove the debris. He even has found 64 messages-in-a-bottle. These people are making a difference. His message is that anyone can make a difference. Volunteering helps one do something that is positive and is one way to make a difference, yet, there are so many ways to make a difference. You can do that with just a smile or a reaching out hand. Carolyn

More insight from our founding fathers. Patrick Henry Warned About Infringement on Liberty: by Thomas S. Kidd At the conclusion of Virginia’s 1788 ratification convention, a meeting tasked with voting on the new Constitution, Patrick Henry strode to the assembly floor, convinced that the future of American liberty hung in the balance. In his mind’s eye, the great orator warned, he could see angels watching, “reviewing the political decisions and revolutions which in the progress of time will happen in America, and the consequent happiness or misery of mankind–I am led to believe that much of the account on one side or the other, will depend on what we now decide.” To Americans familiar only with Henry’s blazing “Liberty or Death” oration of 1775, it may come as a shock to learn that Henry opposed the adoption of the Constitution. Henry always had a flair for the dramatic, but on this occasion Mother Nature offered him an improbable assist: As he thundered against the dangers of the new cen ...

1812 BAPTIST Joseph Willis (1762-1854) organized the first black Baptist church west of the Mississippi River in the Bayou Chicot District of Louisiana. Willis was a free black who had begun his missionary efforts in southwest Mississippi and went to Louisiana in 1804. He became the first moderator of the Louisiana Baptist Association, when it was formed in 1818. He was succeeded by his grandson, who was ordained in 1849. 1815 AFRICAN METHODIST EPISCOPAL (AME) CHURCH Methodist in Charleston, South Carolina, secretly began to form their own church when the separate black quartery conference was abolished. Morris Brown (1770-1849) was one of two persons sent north to be ordained by Richard Allen. Brown became the first pastor of the church when blacks withdrew from the Methodist Episcopal Church. The church was suppressed, and the building demolished, in 1822, due to the involvement of members in the Denmark Vesey polt for a slave uprising. Brown escaped by being smuggled north.

The continued presence of an active Madden-Julian Oscillation, with emphasis near the International Dateline, will be boosting chances for a significant storm and cold spell in the October 29 - November 2 time frame. Note typhoons Francisco (nearing Japan) and Lekima (an almost textbook symmetrical system) in the western Pacific Ocean, and the general stream of moisture and energy from both Malaysia and Oceania into a cold storm exiting the Aleutian Islands. This alignment boosts ridging over the West Coast in coming days, and forces the powerful cold disturbance to dig into the Texas Panhandle. The GFS series is now taking the lead on the concept of the "third year in a row" Halloween time storm, with emphasis this time on the south central states and Mississippi River watershed. I continue to advertise a heavy rainfall and severe thunderstorm event with this "Panhandle Hooker B" storm track. More later.

~Spooky When I was younger I used to work as a night auditor for a very popular hotel chain in New Orleans. This particular hotel was once an old warehouse in the Central Business District. It had a long history that dated back to the Underground Railroad where tunnels built throughout the building were used to secretly lead slaves to boats on the Mississippi River. When the hotel owners started to demo the property to convert it into a hotel, they found old distillery equipment used during the prohibition days. The building was saturated in fantastic and interesting history. I was told that during the renovation a decision was made to keep much of the existing brick and woodwork. This gave the hotel an intriguing historic and warehouse feel to it. While it hadn’t been occupied in nearly 40 years, the guts of the building were amazingly in great shape. It had such an interesting vibe and New Orleans is known for attracting the most interesting of guests for Mardi Gras and JazzFest. I loved it there, unt ...

for all those get over it theorists... Slavery transformed America into an economic power. The exploitation of black people for free labor made the South the richest and most politically powerful region in the country. British demand for American cotton made the southern stretch of the Mississippi River the Silicon Valley of its era, boasting the single largest concentration of the nation’s millionaires. But slavery was a national enterprise. Many firms on Wall Street such as JPMorgan Chase, New York Life and now-defunct Lehman Brothers made fortunes from investing in the slave trade the most profitable economic activity in New York’s 350 year history. Slavery was so important to the city that New York was one of the most pro-slavery urban municipalities in the North. According to Harper’s magazine (November 2000), the United States stole an estimated $100 trillion for 222,505,049 hours of forced labor between 1619 and 1865, with a compounded interest of 6 percent.

October 20th The Louisiana Purchase “There is on the globe one single spot, the possessor of which is our natural and habitual enemy,” Thomas Jefferson wrote. “It is New Orleans, through which the produce of three-eighths of our territory must pass to market.” The port city lay at the southern edge of Louisiana, the vast region named for French king Louis XIV that stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains, and from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico. In 1801 President Jefferson instructed Robert Livingston, his envoy in Paris, to try to buy New Orleans from the French. Jefferson sent his good friend James Monroe to aid in the negotiations. The Americans were in luck. Napoleon Bonaparte needed money to pay for expensive wars. And he didn’t have much use for Louisiana, which he believed might be seized by the British or Americans at any moment anyway. Livingston and Monroe were stunned when Napoleon offered to sell not just New Orleans but the entire Louisiana Territory fo ...

Yesterday I watched a large flock of American White Pelicans work their way downstream on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River. They wouldn't settle, at least where I could see them. They could have landed on the blind side of the island, but I don't know. I spent a nice time watching and photographing the Great Egret I'd captured the day before, but the light was from a awkward angle and I'm not anticipating very good images. Met a new friend, Paul, who mistook me for someone else and stopped to chat. Today, after the museum closed, I headed for the water. I was delighted to see two Bald Eagles. The first one fly over my head, as if to say "howdy" and then flew back to the Illinois bank of the river. The second one, seeing the first, came flying out of the "eagle tree" as if to join in. I settled down and took a look around. Mallards were paddling near the duckweed. My friend the Great Egret flew off the casino boat, which surprised me somehow. Its flight was beautiful, etherial, and uncharacteri ...
HISTORY OF THE CAR RADIO Seems like cars have always had radios, but they didn't. Here's the story: One evening, in 1929, two young men named William Lear and Elmer Wavering drove their girlfriends to a lookout point high above the Mississippi River town of Quincy , Illinois ,to watch the sunset. It was a romantic night to be sure, but one of the women observed that it would be even nicer if they could listen to music in the car. Lear and Wavering liked the idea. Both men had tinkered with radios (Lear had served as a radio operator in the U.S. Navy during World War I) and it wasn't long before they were taking apart a home radio and trying to get it to work in a car. But it wasn't easy: automobiles have ignition switches, generators, spark plugs, and other electrical equipment that generate noisy static interference, making it nearly impossible to listen to the radio when the engine was running. One by one, Lear and Wavering identified and eliminated each source of electrical interference. When they fi . ...

Have you ever cruised the Mississippi River?? What a cool way to see and experience more of the U.S.!
From The American Minute by Bill Federer The Democrat Party's candidate for President in the 1848 election was Lewis Cass, born OCTOBER 9, 1782. In 1807, Lewis Cass became the US Marshal for Ohio. He was a Brigadier-General in the War of 1812, fighting in the Battle of the Thames. President James Madison appointed him Governor-General of the Michigan Territory, 1813-1831, where he made Indian treaties, organized townships and built roads. In 1820, he led an expedition to northern Minnesota to search for the source of the Mississippi River in order to define the border between the U.S. and Canada. Cass' expedition geologist Henry Schoolcraft identified the Mississippi's source as Lake Itasca in 1832. President Andrew Jackson appointed Lewis Cass as Secretary of War in 1831, then minister to France in 1836. He was elected a U.S. Senator from Michigan, 1845-48, 1849-57. Senator Lewis Cass wrote from Washington, D.C. in 1846: "God, in His providence, has given us a Book of His revealed will to be with us at t ...

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is defying orders from Washington, D.C., to close down several state parks that receive federal funding. Despite receiving a closure directive from the National Park Service, Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has decided instead that parks partly funded by the federal government would stay open to the public. In the wake of this week’s federal government shutdown, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also placed barricades by a boat launch on the Mississippi River because it was on federal land. Wisconsin’s natural resources agency reopened it. […] Wisconsin has also decided to not fully follow a Fish and Wildlife agency’s directive that hunting and fishing be prohibited on federal lands during the shutdown. Hunting access would be allowed in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, state officials said.
The French and Indian War was precipitated through a series of altercations over rights to land in the Upper Ohio Valley. In April 1754, a force of French and Indians traveling down the Allegheny River, with orders from the governor-general of New France to claim this prized territory for France, encountered a small garrison at the forks of the Ohio. This was a strategic location for both the French, who sought unfettered access between their North American settlements on the Great Lakes and Mississippi River, and the British who craved fresh territory for their colonies' expansion. Both coveted the lucrative fur trade with the Indians beyond the Allegheny Mountains. The garrison in question was Fort Prince George, established some months earlier by the young Colonel George Washington while scouting for Virginia's Ohio Land Company. Declaring the area "extremely well-situated for a fort, having command of both rivers," Washington established a British settlement that would eventually develop into the city ...

Summary: · At 8AM, Tropical Storm Karen was located about 445 Miles South-southwest of the Mouth of Mississippi River which is approximately 538 miles south-southwest of Pensacola, Florida. · Karen is forecast to slow down in foreword speed later today with a turn toward the north, before making a sharp turn to the northeast on Saturday before landfall late Saturday/early Sunday. · Maximum sustained winds are at 60 mph with higher gusts. Environmental conditions will promote some strengthening over the next day or two and there is a 23% chance that this system could become a hurricane 1am on Sunday. · The tack of this system will depend on the timing of a frontal boundary which is expected to descend into our area. Models have become more uncertain, and solutions suggest a possible landfall anywhere between Gulf County in Florida and New Orleans, but the majority of solutions place a landfall near Mississippi, Alabama, and Northwest Florida. · The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center ...

A "little" bike ride across the heartland. The Book, “An American Journey” is kind of a Huck Finn story that was written by James Ernest Shaw, as a little past middle age adult being the first person character. It is written not along the Mississippi River on a raft but across the highways and byways on a unique small bicycle on roads that we cross every day but never stop to closely examine what we have been missing. It encompasses not only the John Steinbeck style of writing which the Author refers to frequently but the bare human struggle against nature of Ernest Hemingway. At the age when most adults are content with just recollecting their memories of past victories and long forgotten loves, James Ernest Shaw sets out on a quest of a somewhat similar journey of his nemesis John Steinbeck did late in his life in the book “Travels with Charley: In Search of America”. This is a story of freshness and hope, and that the the current course our country has been sliding into is but a false misdire . ...
Do we have a Nitrogen and Phosphorus Issue in our Watersheds? Court Ruling Forces EPA Action on Mississippi River Pollution The U.S. District Court in Eastern Louisiana ordered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to determine within six months whether to set new limits on the pollution that is fueling the dangerous algae growth choking the waters throughout the Mississippi River basin, the Gulf of Mexico and waters across the country. Attorneys at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) led the suit, filed on behalf of several conservation groups and based on longstanding efforts by the Mississippi River Collaborative to break decades of inaction from the federal government on the issue of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution. These chemicals fuel the formation of the Gulf Dead Zone and toxic algae blooms and cause damage to drinking water supplies. Nitrogen and phosphorus from sewage plants, urban storm water systems and agricultural operations fuels the growth of algae in waterways around t ...
Georgia, my adopted state: There are some things that all Georgians should know - Georgia is the largest state east of the Mississippi River. - Coca Cola is ours, and unless you've had one in a six-and-a-half ounce bottle, with a slight crust of ice on top, you missed a real treat. - Try pouring about half a pack of salted peanuts into one sometime. - If it weren't for a Georgian - Crawford Long of Jefferson - all surgery would hurt like terribly. - Georgians, native or adopted, say "ma'am" and "sir" and call their mothers "mama" and their fathers "daddy." - They know that y'all is perfectly good English and never means just one person. - "Fixin to" is perfectly acceptable, too. It's really preferred. - And if y'all don't like the way we talk, Delta (which is also ours) is ready when you are. - Long before the Olympics brought the world's greatest athletes to Atlanta, we gave the world Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, Walt Frazier, Luke Appling, Johnny Mize, Fran Tarkenton, Bobby Jones, Wyomia Tyus, and Herschel ...

The Louisiana State Penitentiary (LSP, also known as Angola, and nicknamed the "Alcatraz of the South" and "The Farm") is a prison farm in Louisiana operated by the Louisiana Department of Public Safety & Corrections. It is the largest maximum security prison in the United States with 5,000 offenders and 1,800 staff. It is located on an 18,000-acre (7,300 ha) property that was previously the Angola and other plantations owned by Isaac Franklin in unincorporated West Feliciana Parish, directly adjacent to the Mississippi state line. The prison is located at the end of Louisiana Highway 66, around 22 miles (35 km) northwest of St. Francisville. Angola is bordered on three sides by the Mississippi River. As of 2012 Burl Cain is the warden. The State of Louisiana's death row for men and the state execution chamber are there. In the State of Louisiana the names "Louisiana State Penitentiary" and "Angola," the name of the post office that serves the prison, are used interchangeably.

Good morning... Okay, I'm still a Raider fan...probably because I can still remember going to their games before the Oakland Coliseum was built, when they would win the game literally in the last few seconds...when they were mean, a fierce and scary...not so much any more...in fact I understand that they are the most losing team in the last decade.but there is always hope...just because they have gone from AR the Raiders to ah, a box of puppies doesn't mean they won't rise again...then I can say...see, told ya! And...today is the day...the chalk board paint is coming out and I'm going to do my thing...I'm not quite sure what that is but there will be something covered in CB paint in my house before the end of the day!!! Ar Have a wonderful autumn day...it's official now... this is the Mississippi River between Arkansas and Mississippi...pictures never do justice...remember being enchanted by this river as a little girl

Things u never knew Elvis is really dead. Elvis was Roy Orbinson's number one fan. Elvis flew Lisa Marie to Colorado to see her first snow. At 1;30 am. During a party Elvis summoned the plane to carry his friends to Chicago to get peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Then came back home We met Elvis first cousin Louise smith and she gave us autographed pictures of her and Elvis. This was in a restaurant called Marlowes near Graceland. We cruised the Mississippi River. We learned the song "Proud Mary" was written about a paddle boat on the Mississippi. We traveled into Mississippi and Arkansas. We saw National Civil Rights Museum. We saw where Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated. On Beale Street brass musical notes are embedded in the street. Taylor Swift was in concert in Nashville She had 23 freight liners parked on the street

On this date in 1842, James Shields and Abraham Lincoln met for a duel on an island on the Missouri side of the Mississippi River near Alton. Shields, a Belleville attorney and state auditor, had accused Lincoln, then a state legislator, of writing a critical article about him. Lincoln wisely chose cavalry sabers as their weapons. But Lincoln convinced Shields that he didn't write the article and the duel was called off. Shields could also see that Lincoln had a much longer reach... (Source: Vintage St. Louis)

HERE IS THE HISTORY OF PIGEON ROOST FOR ALL OF OUR FOLLOWERS TO GET KNOW BEFORE THURSDAY.Almost simultaneous with the Fort Harrison attack occurred the most diabolical event in our Indiana history - the "Pigeon Roost" massacre. What was known as the Pigeon Roost Settlement consisted of several families that made a little community in what is now Scott County. This settlement, founded in 1809, was separated from any other by several miles, and was confined to about a square mile of territory (Dillon, p.492). On the third of September 1812, this settlement was attacked by a band of about a dozen marauders, said to have been Shawnees, who, scouring the locality and going from cabin to cabin, murdered within a space of an hour, twenty-two persons, sixteen of them being children and five of them women. Prior to this general killing, two men, Jeremiah Payne and Isaac Coffman, were shot in the woods. Most of the cabin homes were burned down. The victims, besides Payne and Coffman, were Mrs. Jeremiah Payne and he ...

So, here is our Saturday Story. We went to bed last night knowing that we were heading to Iowa next--but had not really decided (or even checked yet) where we were gonna be when. Had a tentative "meet-up" with a former student, but hadn't planned when or how long it was gonna take to get there--that was left to today's "planning" agenda. Ends up--that by the time we got ready to get serious about it--we discovered that we were only a couple of hours from Iowa City--there in Hannibal --and that we wouldn't need to be there til Monday sometime. SO--we find that with very little effort we can leave Hannibal--after getting some "stuff" done--and get to a State Park in MO--at our "regular/usual/ideal" 5 to 6 pm "put-up-for-the-night" time--AND found a Casey's General Store just about 10 minutes from said State Park--where we got a pizza (we like Casey's Pizza)--and found a picnic table right across the street--just a stone's throw from the Mississippi River--where we , indeed, ate our supper of Pizza in b ...

THIS DAY IN AMERICAN HISTORY: Sep 21, 1779: Spaniards capture Baton Rouge On this day in 1779, the Louisiana governor and Spanish military officer Bernardo de Galvez, with the aide of American troops and militia volunteers, captures the British post and garrison at Baton Rouge, located in what was then British-controlled West Florida. In a cunning and brilliant move, de Galvez included in the terms of the British surrender of Baton Rouge that the British also surrender Fort Panmure at Natchez to Spanish control. Defeated and on the verge of utter annihilation, the British had no other choice but to accept the terms. The Spanish capture of Baton Rouge and Fort Panmure ended British control of the Mississippi Valley and opened the Mississippi River to a Spanish supply line—running from the Gulf of Mexico to the Ohio Valley--that greatly benefited the American cause. De Galvez was then able to lay siege to the British-occupied city of Pensacola, Florida, in the spring of 1781, which ended in a British surr ...

not all of Iowa! Go up the Mississippi River valley. Beautiful.
We had a double celebration today---a first Fall picnic on this beautiful sunny 70's afternoon. I filled up our coffee travel cups, swung by LuciaAnna's bakery, and we found a spot high on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River and just soaked up the beauty! I said double celebration because this morning I finished my kitchen wallpaper removal. You have heard the story about the man who lived in an old cabin who picked a flower and put it on his mantle, then had to replace the mantle to go with the flower-- then had to paint the walls, etc . I bought new dishes, then noticed wallpaper needed to be removed and kitchen painted-- hard telling where this will end- :-)
I visited the park nearby the great Mississippi River.
McGregor is a city in Clayton County, Iowa, United States. The population was 871 at the 2010 census. McGregor is located on the Mississippi River across from Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.

hmm, what should we do today? Beautiful day, let's see, go visit Olivia Rose at the Borner Farm Project, choose some spectacular tomatoes, encounter 6 thousand (okay, maybe not 6) motorcyclists, drive down the WI side of the Mississippi River, bike the Cannon Valley trail (40 stunning miles) and watch a bit of Footy. Seems like an all around good day. I shall sleep well tonight.

The weeks have been moving by very quickly! We want to prepare you for the first phone calls that will inevitably happen as the Company's are completing BRM in the next weeks. Have a list of questions you want to ask your loved one with you always as well as your cell phone. Warriors may be given permission to travel by POV if they are EAST of the Mississippi River for AIT by the Commanders IF they are in good standing. Generally the assumption is made if you have to ask Team FB if they are doing well they must be or else you'd know already ;) They will still have to report on FRIDAY after graduation regardless of what the projected orders their recruiter gave them; new "real" orders will be cut the last weeks of BCT with the updated date and time as well as location to report. We at BCT do not know if they will be given a weekend pass from AIT. Make the decision now if you want to do this so that you can let your warrior know during that call. Everyone knows by now mail can be very slow so take advantag ...

Even tho I will admit...this beautiful event was a lot of work...I dont think I would change a thing! (well...maybe more time to make the corsages and all the bouquets!) Kassie met someone who made her SMILE in faraway AZ...a bit of a rebel...like herself...but a decent, loyal, hardworking guy who also brought into our lives a cherished 'grand daughter' ! With 3 brothers and a protective Dad to deal with..we havent had to follow thru on any of the threats he has had to put up with for the last 9 years! Most who meet them..think them the 'perfect pair', and we all agree!.. so we patiently waited for that Special Question to happen..and it did on April 29th, in front of a roaring fire..on a camping/backpacking trip in MO..he proposed! So our 'Outdoor camping theme' for the reception included S'Mores kits, 'Stix and Stones' (pretzels and candy coated chocolate rocks), several trips to the Mississippi river for the perfect sticks, and bark, and many bags of decorative rocks! Her friend volunteered to make cup ...
