HUNTINGTON — It's a muggy Monday morning at Harris Riverfront Park along the shores of the Ohio River in Huntington. It's quiet for the most part, with the exception of a honk from a goose and the chatter of the ducks congregated around one man standing and tossing alms of food for the feathered flock.
Mark Ray, from Green Bottom, says he regularly comes to the park to feed the ducks.
"I usually have my grandson with me," he says as he throws bread to the ducks who have been joined by geese and a few pigeons.
Ray talks about a variety of subjects ranging from the weather to his opinions of government on all levels.
A haze clings to the hills as the sun slowly rises and burns off the mist to start a sweltering hot day in Huntington.
