Mississippi not so deep

A spray of sand-laced water shoots Wednesday from the Jadwin, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers vessel that is cutting a deeper channel for towboats to navigate the Mississippi north of Greenville, Miss. Coast Guard authorities will inspect the channel, then reset navigation buoys allowing barge traffic to resume on a limited basis as federal agencies deal with the continued drought that has lowered the Mississippi River.
