Maritime Heritage Report; Catholic Seamans Club

4Culture, the King County (Seattle, WA) arts and heritage agency, released a report by the Seattle King County Maritime Heritage Task Force, which was organized to study numerous problems with maritime heritage preservation in the area. You can find links to the report at the Maritime Heritage Network task force page.

The Seattle Times had a nice story today about the Catholic Seamans Club and a Christmas Mass aboard the bulk carrier Zagora at Pier 86 in the Port of Seattle. I couldn't find a link to the story on the Times website, but I'll check later and update this entry. The local papers write this story every few years. The dailies here rarely cover real issues facing these workers. I wrote a piece on foreign seamen in US waters for Evergreen Monthly that took an in-depth look at some of the immigration issues. The story was headlined Human Cargo. [link]

The family survived Christmas. We watched the DVD version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy last night.
