      Longtime ferry back open after hiatus

      After a nearly three-year hiatus, the ferry in Grafton is running again.

      The city-owned ferry connects Illinois' Jersey County to Missouri's St. Charles County.

      Using the ferry cuts about 30 minutes of time off a commute.

      Ferry service was halted because of silt collecting along the river bottom.

      Then dredging efforts were postponed because of flooding.
