Safe Cruise

Project Safe Cruise Press Release: See www.projectsafecruise.blogspot.com & details below. Leave a message if you have experienced incidents involving poor security & safety practices of cruise lines. Hearings are scheduled; we will provide them to Congress. We must act to insure passenger safety. The current lack of safety & security is not acceptable especially after 9/11. On 5/12/05, we were on the Carnival Destiny near Aruba when an elderly couple disappeared without a trace.

Government could save $50 billion per year by having two shifts of white collar employees work each day. Office space costs $50,000/year for each employee yet we only use space 30% of time. We can no longer afford to have banker's hours for all. With over 2 million federal employees this cost-free paradigm change could avoid lay offs/furloughs and reduce pollution.

Victim Identified In Cruise Ship Death


The man who fell overboard from the Keweenaw Star to his death Thursday night was 23 year old Jessie James Jaukkuri. Authorities released his identification Friday, along with information on how the accident apparently occurred. Witnesses say Jaukkuri was leaning backward over the railing when he slipped, falling 15 feet into Portage Canal. He wasn't seen again. Divers with the Michigan State Police Underwater Recovery Unit are now trying to recover the victim's remains. They estimate it may take three days. Some remains were found on Thursday night. More than 70 passengers were on board the boat.
