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.

Teenager falls overboard from Carnival cruise ship originating in New Orleans

A cruise ship headed to Key West from New Orleans lost a passenger Sunday evening when an 18-year-old man fell overboard, the Coast Guard said. The call came in at 9:45 p.m., said Petty Officer Nick Ameen, a Coast Guard spokesman in Miami. A teenager, likely a member of a high school group celebrating graduation, had fallen into the water. Now, almost 14 hours later, the man is still missing, Ameen said. Helicopters, a C-130 Hercules and the Coast Guard Cutter Nantucket are still scouring the ocean about 150 miles off the Florida coast from Tampa Bay. The cruise ship, the Carnival Fantasy, circled the area until 2:30 a.m., before proceeding on to Key West, Ameen said. Ameen said he didn't have any identification for the teenager, but WWL-TV is reporting his name is Bruce O'Krepki of Hammond, a recent graduate St. Thomas Aquinas High School.
