River stories needed for local documentary Craig Ernster, owner of River Rat Video Productions of Yankton, is creating a documentary video on the Newcastle/Vermillion bridge.
"We are looking for people who have information, stories, or photographs on local ferry traffic of the past. We are hoping to contact people who can share stories about the rich river history of the Vermillion and Newcastle areas," said Ernster.
"It seems every story we have been getting refers to several other stories and we want to document some of this history as well. We know the stories are there, and now we need to find local people to interview. We are also looking for any stories, photos or videos of the Newcastle Vermillion bridge when it was under construction," he said.
People who have stories or materials to share please contact Ernster at 605-665-4507 or 605-661-4506.
