#1 There has been a drought in Panama recently. An article I read somewhere says there is only 40 feet depth in the locks in the canal. I guess that's enough for a carrier to pass through.

#3 The USS Lincoln is a Nimitz class carrier, these ships cannot use the Panama Canal. Even with the larger locks.
