On this episode of Drinkin’ with Lincoln, we’re not drinkin’ with Lincoln at all. Host Clint Cargile marks the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote with a special spinoff episode we’re calling Sippin’ with Suffragists. To celebrate the occasion, he travels to Galena, Illinois, to interview one of the most famous suffragists of all: Susan B. Anthony.

BNSF Railway crews have been working around the clock all weekend to clean up debris from last Thursday's derailment of oil tanker cars south of Galena, Ill. The goal is to have their north-south main line along the Mississippi River back in operation by the end of today.

Using a temporary road built along the railroad right of way, heavy equipment has been brought in to re-rail eight of the 21 derailed oil tank cars and remove by truck the remainder of the 21 cars that left the tracks.
