"...From your arrival at the restaurant, which anchors a rather unexciting strip mall complex, you know what's in store. This Austin veteran, in business for over a decade, looks like some sort of seafaring barge, its exterior painted a marine blue and hung with sturdy ropes and nets..."
"...Mamet regular Mantegna takes over the directing reins in this screen adaptation of David Mamet's first play. Acting heavyweights Durning, Falk, and Forster make up the mouthy crew of a steel barge; Tony Mamet (David's little brother) plays a first-time deckhand picking up the tools of the trade (and, no doubt, life lessons to boot)..."
"...In 1994, an errant barge smashed into the ships, causing extensive damage. The Pinta and Santa Maria wound up as museum exhibits while the Nina sits off-limits to the public, rotting at a berth in a waterfront marina...."
"...Groceries for the facility are purchased in Juneau and arrive at Little Port by supply boat once a month and more frequently by seaplane. Produce selection in Juneau is not as fresh or affordable as we enjoy in mainland cities because it is shipped by barge from Seattle..."
"...A little chopping, a little translation, and much laughter flavor the days of gathering, cooking, and savoring this essential French cuisine. On one afternoon, they team up to get the Julia Hoyt -- Kate's 86-foot barge/home -- underway for a floating picnic..."
"...Guerrilla nuclear tactics would bypass SDI. Why should potential adversaries forego the cost of constructing this albatross of limited nuclear war when The Bomb could be delivered via railroad, river barge, tramp steamer, or U-Haul truck -- a quantum leap above what happened to the OKC federal building..."
"...Clearview Marina & Resort (4), 903/872-1442, www.clearviewmarina.com, is one of the nicest places on the lake. Has cabins, camping, RV sites, store, bait, bird sanctuary, nature trails, beach, and enclosed fishing barge..."
"...Left to his own devices, Mike the drummer forms his own group that requires months of rehearsal before they dare play in public. The small-town scene in southern Oklahoma and North Texas is presented in excruciating detail as a process of renting old wooden buildings from suspicious church groups and of outraged redneck parents interrupting his band's set when they barge in and drag their rebellious children off the dance floor in the middle of a hot rendition of "My Baby Does the Hanky Panky."..."
"...Eagle Fest in Emory conducts barge tours on Lake Fork and Lake Tawakoni where at least 59 adult eagles winter and four nesting pairs live year-round. There will also be birds of prey demonstrations, campfire storytelling, crafts show, and live music; Jan..."
"...At the same time, while the carefully staged photos and fictitious subjects of Sherman's Untitled Film Stills series lend us a disturbing yet subtle perspective on the dark side of life, Mark Todd's creations in "Bad Lands" barge into darkness with much more offensive images of real-life horror stories. It's such a change that walking through the three galleries where Todd is showing is like stumbling through a briar patch..."
"...Her adjustment to her new life includes new relatives, a new school, and experiences unlike any she had in the U.S.A. She learns about the disagreements between Arabs and Jews and how hard it is to live comfortably knowing that Israeli soldiers could barge in and smash your things any second..."
"..."Great to have you. How about shutting the fuck up? I didn't barge into your sales meeting this afternoon and holler, `The Michelin Man's better than you!'"..."
"...Rains County Eagle Fest in Emory offers bus and barge tours at Lake Fork and Lake Tawakoni to view the bald eagles along with other activities, Jan. 17-19. 903/473-2901...."
"...Robert Hewitt, Jr., a lifelong Republican from Victoria, who has contributed to and volunteered on Republican campaigns -- never Democratic -- for 20 years has switched gears to throw his energy behind Morris' campaign. He's afraid that as a legislator, not only will Paul be unable to get anything done, but he could actually hurt the district's economy with his attempts to stamp out the federal government. Hewitt, whose work for Morris is strictly volunteer, doubts, for example, that Paul would vote for federal funds to support the Victoria County Airport, or the Victoria Barge Canal, which runs from the coast to Victoria and transports products to the petrochemical industry there..."
"...Austin's first foot, carriage, and railroad bridges were all built over the creek near Pine and Pecan (today's Fifth and Sixth) Streets, making those streets the major east-west downtown thoroughfares. Before the bridges, people and things either rode upriver by barge to the Stone Docks, at the foot of Trinity Street, or got dropped on Waller Creek's banks..."
"..."We had a lot of hazardous material incidents," explains Collier. "Town Lake came up, a barge broke loose and was floating downriver and we thought it was going to hit the dam. The airport had fuel tanks floating up out of the ground threatening to spill..."
