Ice-breaking operations postponed for Saginaw Bay

BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard has postponed ice-breaking operations for Saginaw Bay that initially were scheduled for this weekend. The crew of the 225-foot cutter Hollyhock had planned to begin work Sunday morning from Gravelly Shoal to the entrance of the Saginaw River. The Coast Guard announced Friday, however, that the Port Huron-based cutter's crew is heading to another area to break ice. The Coast Guard says it will announce later a new date for Saginaw Bay ice-breaking work.
