BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER

Rising Sun High School students in Ms. King’s 3D Art class put in some hard work to brighten up the hallways. Ideas for their abstract mural were born by first researching the work of other artists. This was followed by sketching their ideas for the hallway and creating a palette. After mixing their paint and taping off their design, they got to the fun part: painting! After the creation was dry, they revealed their masterpiece by ripping off the tape.

“History repeats itself ... at a recent meeting the subject of river drift control was brought up. It has and will always be a concern on the Ohio River and especially the old public landing. ... The problem had to be addressed early on in the development of the Ohio River as a main logistics route before railroads became king. One solution from the late 19th century and early 20th century was to employ “snagboats.”  Simply put, a snagboat was a steamboat with an apparatus for removing impending debris, such as snags, from inland waterways. The attached image is of the U.S. Snagboat E.A. Woodruff taken approximately 1901. It was built in 1874 and operated on the Ohio River. It was decommissioned in the early 1920s and was used as a wharfboat in Louisville Kentucky. During its operations, it would travel from Cincinnati making trips covering areas from the Pennsylvania state line and to Wheeling West Virginia. Rising Sun was a normal stop on its routes. Local history matters.”
