Drowning Deaths In Missouri Increasing This Year........


The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that during the first six months of 2021, Missouri has recorded more drowning deaths than in the same time period of any year since 2008.


As of Thursday, 47 people have drowned in Missouri since the year began. Since the Missouri State Highway Patrol started keeping records in 2008, the state had averaged 39 drowning deaths during the first six months of the year.


According to Kyle Green, a spokesman and education officer for the MSHP, he has been unable to find an obvious reason for the increased number of drownings this year..........

Missouri Disabled Water Ski Association Held Annual Event Saturday........


On Saturday, Creve Coeur Lake hosted the annual Missouri Disabled Water Ski Summer Splash event where people get to water ski, go boating and more. 


Rainfall put a damper on this year's event, which was running from 8 am to about 10:30 am when the rains began. Jody Higgins said that it was the first time in 20 years that the event was delayed by rain.


Participants in the water felt the rain fall, heard thunder and saw lightning.   Higgins said she was already in the water and in her ski, hoping to get a second run in when officials said it was a no-go........

Underwater Oddities

SpongeBob And Patrick Spotted On The Sea Floor........


This week marine scientist Christopher Mah was doing some remote research on the Atlantic Ocean's sea floor, when he spotted two critters that bore an uncanny resemblance to the cartoon characters SpongeBob and Patrick Star.


Mah was studying the Retriever seamount, which is an underwater sea mountain off of the east coast.  Mah was using a remotely operated vehicle capable of making and documenting deep sea dives.


Mah, who has ties to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration posted his SpongeBob SquarePants find on Twitter.  There was no word on whether a pineapple was found in the area........

are urged to transit the area at their slowest safe speed to minimize their wake and proceed with caution after passing arrangements have been made.

Continuing until August 20, 2021, L/D 27 in the vicinity of Mile 185.5, will be closed for repairs on the following schedule. One L/D chamber will be available to pass traffic at all times. Continuing until July 28, 2021, Auxiliary lock closed and August 2, 2021 until August 20, 2021, Main lock closed.
All navigation interests should be alert for, and abide by, any special instructions that may be issued by the lockmaster.

Mariners should exercise caution and minimize their wake in all high water zones. The laying up on saturated levees is prohibited. Mariners should be experienced in high water conditions and avoid down-streaming operations. Mariners should remain vigilant to an increase in debris and maneuver appropriately. Be aware that a buildup of debris in fleeting areas may have occurred and take appropriate action to prevent breakaways. Exercise caution in all meeting situations, as swift currents may be present. Navigational buoys may have been dragged off station,
so remain alert while transiting. Recreational traffic is discouraged


The U.S. Coast Guard is conducting a Waterways Analysis and Management System (WAMS) study of the Missouri River from the confluence of the Mississippi River (Missouri River Mile 0.0 to Mile 732.3), in the vicinity of Sioux City, MO.

Mississippi River At East St. Louis, Missouri

Underseepage Wall To Be One Of The Largest Infrastructure Projects No One Will See.........


The St. Louis region is home to many landmarks and engineering marvels such as the Eads Bridge, the Gateway Arch and Union Station.  Soon, it will be home to another engineering marvel, however, this one will not be visible.


Colonel Kevin Golinghorst, commander of the St. Louis Engineer District says that the East St. Louis cutoff seepage wall project is one of the largest infrastructure projects that St. Louisans will never see.


The reason people won't see the project is that it is completely underground, as it's job is to protect the levees along the Illinois side of the Mississippi River from underseepage and sandboils.


When completed in 2022, this cutoff wall will be the larges and deepest of it's kind.  It will run 4,600 feet parallel to the existing levee on the Illinois side of the river, just north of downtown St. Louis........

Mississippi River Near St. Cloud, Minnesota

How Do The Current River Levels Compare To Other Drought Years?


This summer, the level of the Mississippi River in the St. Cloud region is very low, with many rocks and sandbars exposed that many people have not seen before.


According to Tracy Hodel, the Public Services Director for St. Cloud, there are a lot of similarities between this year and 1988 as far as drought conditions are concerned, and water levels are approaching the 1988 levels.


Hodel adds that the two years are so similar because in both years, the dry period began in the spring and early summer.  In 1988, that trend lasted until mid-August, when a wet weather pattern started bringing river levels back up........

Boat Maintenance

Don't Lose Your Cool When Your Boat Overheats........


Hot summer days are perfect for being on the water, and luckily, boats are designed to run just fine on hot summer days.  It is possible, however, for boats to overheat, and that could add up to big trouble as well as big repair bills.  According to BoatUS Marine Insurance data 9 percent of boat fires are caused by an overheating engine.


Boaters have a variety of ways available to tell is their boat is overheating.  The first is to look at the temperature gauge, if it's headed for the red, there is trouble brewing.  If an engine feels as if it is losing power, or doesn't want to restart until cooled down, that could be a sign of trouble.  A large amount of steam from the exhaust could indicate a problem as well.


If you determine that an engine is running hot, some troubleshooting will need to be done to determine the cause of the problem.  Some of the more common failure points include water pump impeller failure, an issue with the belt driving the water pump is damaged or broken, or the raw water strainers or intakes are clogged........

We have ordered our steel (for the) building and they are in the process of making it. They said it usually takes about 3 months to have it built and delivered. Let’s pray everything goes smoothly and there are no setbacks

Kinder's Restaurant





Hi Bill!
We have the foundation built!!! Unfortunately, since lumber prices are so high right now we are putting a hold on the build. Hoping all of this ends soon so we can get back to it.


Kinder's Restaurant




Foundation work started

"The plan is to keep it in the same location, maybe a little closer to the river and up about 7 ft higher. The building will be just a little smaller with a bigger deck."
