DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Salvage operations for a sunken towboat on the Mississippi River at LeClaire have been slowed as workers cope with below-freezing temperatures expected to linger for days. Workers had hoped to raise the bow of the sunken Stephen Colby by Friday, but were unable to do so. U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Jaclyn Young says workers are able to spend only two hours outside before they must be cycled through a warming tent. Divers are only allowed only 30 minutes in the water.
