The Saginaw River saw an unusual visitor on Thursday when the Stephen B. Roman arrived with a cargo for the Essroc Cement dock in Essexville. There was a lot of speculation when the new powdered cement unloading system was built last year if the Roman would call on Essroc. That speculation was ended Thursday morning with her arrival. Also calling on the Saginaw on Thursday was the river's most frequent visitor, the tug Olive L. Moore and her barge, Lewis J. Kuber. The pair traveled all the way upriver to the Lafarge Stone Dock in Saginaw.
