Billy Lynn operates a barge as it is filled with coal on the Mississippi River at Knight Hawk Coal LLC in Chester, Illinois, U.S., on Friday, Nov. 30, 2012. The family-owned Knight Hawk employs 400 people and has another 300 contractors, including about 140 truck drivers. The company has never had layoffs since it opened in 1998, said Andrew Carter, vice president of sales and distribution. A blocked Mississippi could change that.
