fast ferry over budget
- Hello group,
I am new to this group and have found it a great wealth of
I read in the Appleton Post Crescent newspaper this morning that the
new ferry terminal in Milwaukee is going to cost a million and a
half more than originally budgeted. Since the deal is already signed
with Lubar, the taxpayers get to supply the excess funds. Doesn't
it really make you respect a guy like Charles Conrad who spent is own
money to start a buisness?
If anyone is interested in seeing some pictures, I took some of the
Badger leaving Manitowoc on the final trip of the 2003 season. I
also have some shots of her in Sturgeon Bay, and 1 or 2 "silhouette"
shots from her evening departure from Manitowoc after the 2003
Wisconsin shoreline cruise. If anyone is interested let me know, I
can upload them to the group here or send them direct.
- Here's a link to an article in the Milwaukee paper about the budget
Groundbreaking for the terminal is to be this coming week.
