A canoe spotted floating upside down near the Veterans Memorial Bridge shortly before 11:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 11, caused some concern and the response of Harbormaster Katherine Pickering and Fire Chief Jim Richards to ensure that no one was in the water.

Pickering said she didn't believe anyone was in the canoe, because the bottom of the boat was covered in dust, which implied it had floated away from wherever it had been pulled up on land.
