Aunt Jemina is toast. It's all over the news today. Her pic has been toppled like a Confederate monument and they are also re-branding and are going to use a new name.

Yep. It was fresh and in great shape and I do believe likely from a then-recently killed boater. Two guys sat anchored right in this spot...
...they ignored the warning buzzer, one or two of those gates were openned and it instantly flipped their boat. On that Saturday, me and my roommate/dive partner/workmate/drummer were getting off a morning shift at noon from our factory that sat right on the river. We went to see what all the commotion of the emergency vehicles was. The capsized boat was still anchored by the dam, but the anglers were missing. Mr. Genius excitedly says, "let's race home and get our dive gear and help the rescue workers find them!" I replied, "'Sounds like a great idea, but what...what if we should find one of them? Ew!"
About a week later, in the general area, I found the Zebco 33 combo while diving.
One guy was easy to find. They found him underwater, attached to the boat with the anchor rope wrapped around his leg. The other guy got blown about 1/4 mile downstream and they found him underwater trapped with his foot wedged under a rock.
