The American Century was expected early this morning and was probably loading coal as the sun came up. It is seen above departing the port in April 2008. It should finish early this afternoon. The American Integrity also is expected today, just before noon, and should depart shortly before midnight. These two boats have followed each other since they both arrived in the Twin Ports on April 24. Departing here with coal, one came back on May 1 and the other on May 2. On May 8, they both came back and on May 14, one arrived; the other came the next day. Today, they are both back in the Twin Ports. Both were to load 64,000 tons of coal and both are taking it to Detroit Edison in St. Clair, Mich. That means we will see them both in about a week. They are both 1,000-footers and were purchased from the Oglebay Norton Co. by American Steamship in 2006. Aren't you glad someone is keeping track of this for you?
