  1. “The legislation was introduced by Cantwell and Sen. Lisa Murkowsky”

    Ironic that Sen. Murkowski was first elected as a write-in where misspelling her name invalidated the vote.

    1. Good article, Chris. Having grown up “on the water,” in SE Alaska and Puget Sound, I’m especially interested in local maritime history. Various family members have been active on Puget Sound since the 1880s when great grandfather Burrow homesteaded on Maury Island. Dad and his brother both served on merchant ships operating out of Seattle. His father rowed from Des Moines around Whidbey Island in the 1890s then sailed to Alaska (bound for the Klondike) and back, 1897-1900. Mom’s father made multiple Seattle-Nome roundtrips beginning in 1899 and she made yearly Ketchikan-Seattle roundtrips in the 1920s and early ’30s while at UW and teaching jobs in the States. btw, Lisa Murkowski’s mother Nancy and grandparents Irene and Lester Gore were personal friends of Mom.
