River History....


September 28, 1850 in US Navy History
 

The US Navy abolished flogging as a punishment.
 

Source: yellowad.co.uk

Flogging, also called whipping or caning, a beating administered with a whip or rod, with blows commonly directed to the person's back. It was imposed as a form of judicial punishment and as a means of maintaining discipline in schools, prisons, military forces, and private homes.

Mississippi River Near New Madrid, Missouri

Luhr Bros. Awarded $11.8 Million Dike Contract........

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis District recently awarded a contract of more than $11.8 million to Luhr Brothers Inc. of Columbia, Illinois for the construction and maintenance of a dike along the Lower Mississippi RIver at Donaldson Point near New Madrid, Missouri.

 

The Corps is partnering with commercial towing interests, represented by the Lower Mississippi River Committee as the non-federal sponsor to carry out the contract at Lower Mississippi River Mile Marker 903.

 

Project manager Zach Cook says that the work is needed due to concerns raised by towboat pilots during recent low-water years. Cook adds that the region has required repetitive dredging over the past several years as well........

River Des Peres In University City, Missouri

U City Looking To Buy Out Homes In Flood Plain........

 

In spite of plans for buying out 380 properties, University Coty is now looking to only purchase 24 homes located within the River Des Peres flood plain.  City Manager Gregory Rose says that they would have liked to purchase all of the homes that were flooded, however, it would not have been practical.

 

Rose says that the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency did not see a way to fund the purchase of 300 homes via federal funding.  Rose adds that the estimated cost of purchasing all 24 homes is approximately $4.7 million.

 

The buyout plan includes properties along Wilson Avenue, Burch Lane and the Hafner Court Apartments.  If SEMA approves the buyouts, some homeowners could see an estimated $195,000 check........
