Alaskan United States Senator Lisa Murkowski visits Unalaska and the Port Of Dutch Harbor, and proves to be one of the nicest people around!

The Dedication Ceremony for the New Carl E. Moses Small Boat Harbor was held on August 24 .........
And our Amazing Senator was able to join us!
Lisa Murkowski arriving at the Airport. NOTICE THAT SHE FLIES COMMERCIAL UNLIKE A FEW SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES I COULD NAME!!!!!!!! (Nancy Pelosi (D) Harry Reid (D) Barney Frank (D))
After a Brief rainstorm in the morning the sun had come out and it had warmed up by the time she got here so she got to see the island in it's full green glory.
A Warm and genuine hug for our Mayor, Shirley Marquardt and Chris Hladick the City Manager
And a shot or two with one of her biggest fans, CB!

There was a full day of events planned so after a quick lunch at the airport it was off to the School then the Northern Waters Task Force Meeting, where she spoke to a packed audience.

And Now, Just for Kay, A quick interlude with Roger and BJ!
The Ceremony provided another opportunity to have some of the Housekeeping staff out and about so joining me at the dock were
....From the left, Jon, New Hire Hunter, Maria, My wonderful assistant Veronica and Michael.
Just one portion of the Harbor......
The Rest you can see under construction still behind one of my Favorite people AB!
Lisa has a lot of fans on the Island, Young and old alike, because of all the good work she has done over the years representing us in the halls of Congress.
She is just so kind and gracious to everyone she meets.

Our Great Mayor Shirley and City Manager Chris introduced Lisa and the Coast Guard admirals that accompanied her for the dedication.
Some of my favorite people were there, From My Housekeeping Staff to to Zoya, the Winters and Elizabeth.

And the Sun coorporated for a few Really good Photos of our Senator!

We are all ok Up here. Really, the earthquake back in June was a lot worse.
As always I will leave up the negative comments because I really do believe in free speech, everyone has a right to speak their mind.........and to show just how stupid they are.
I'll leave you with a few Quotes that should make Anonymous #2 think.
"Love your neighbor as yourself, and love the Lord God above all else"
"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"
Those two are from Jesus. You really want to argue with Jesus?
And now for one from South Park's Character Butters
"God Made me. God does not make anything that is not perfect. So, if I'm made from God and I'm gay then I figure God Must be a little gay too"

Hey, I said I support free speech, that does not mean I dont want Anonymous #2's head to explode after reading that last quote.

God Bless you all!

How sad that people believe there is a god. Sad that people pray for someone after an accident,if there was a god the accident would not have happened. As for killing babies. A baby is not a baby until it is born. AND we need to stop the out of control birth rate. You are right on one thing. All politicians are evil.

White, Black, Gay, Straight, I really don't care. Love all. I just get a little frustrated with your Die Hard Republican ways. That's all really! Cant anyone remember why we are in the mess we are in? I will give you a hint "Bush"!!!
How in the world can someone fix the mess he created in 3 years. Google the worst president in US history and look what comes up, It was no surprise to me to see Bush JR. come up for over 5 pages before I stopped reading.

Still enjoy the pictures. I thank you for that.
