Ahoy, Mates! A Review And Forecast For The Port Of Duluth-Superior, And Music From Babie Eyes

Heard On Simply Superior
The Federal Bering Loads Grain In Superior
The Federal Bering loads grain at the CHS elevator in Superior. Oceangoing vessels like the Bering were able to move cargoes longer on the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway during the 2023 shipping season due to less ice and a later closure for international traffic. 

The 2023-24 shipping season is over and the iron boats are laid up for the winter — except with our unseasonably warm temperatures, you may be asking, “What winter?” Nevertheless, the port of Duluth-Superior sticks to its schedule, gearing up for the new season in March after posting impressive numbers for iron ore and grain shipments, along with recently expanded container cargo operations. Duluth Seaway Port Authority Executive Director Deb DeLuca joins “Simply Superior” host Robin Washington to review the activity at one of the top 20 ports in the U.S. on Friday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m.

Also, when Poplar native Heidi Feroe started assembling bandmates to feature her growing repertoire of new songs, she had no trouble tapping mainstays of the Twin Ports music scene. The result is Babie Eyes, whose members interchangeably play different instruments depending on the song. Feroe and collaborator Ian Alexy join Washington in an encore interview ahead of their performance Friday at Wussow’s Concert Cafe in Duluth.
