      The Coast Guard says a section of the Ohio River in Louisville was re-opened Friday after a tugboat and coal barge accident forced its closing.

      Coast Guard officials say a towing vessel was pushing 15 loaded coal barges when it hit the 2nd Street Bridge on Tuesday.

      The crash caused the 15 barges to break free. The Coast Guard says six barges have sunk.

      Coast Guard officials announced late Friday that the Ohio River was reopened to all vessel traffic from Twelve Mile Island to McAlpine Lock and Dam.

      I have fished the Ohio River extensively. Many people aren’t aware of it but the Ohio River has some incredible fishing. The fish are already dangerous to your health if you eat them. We don’t need an additional influx of toxic substances.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".
