15-ton steel sculpture of sturgeon draws attention

(PORT HURON) -- A 15-ton steel sculpture of a sturgeon is drawing attention along the Blue Water River Walk in Port Huron. The Community Foundation of St. Clair County installed the sculpture of the fish, which lives in waters including the Great Lakes. Lou Rodriquez, of South Haven, says it took him three months to complete the sturgeon sculpture. The $10,000 sculpture was funded by private donations and commissioned specifically for the river walk, which officially opens Saturday. "Sugar, the Iron Horse," a sculpture to the south of the sturgeon, cost $15,000 and also was paid for through private donations. Names for the sturgeon sculpture are being solicited on the Community Foundation's Facebook page. More sculptures could be added in 2015.
