New Bedford Fire Department boat saves critically injured fisherman

NEW BEDFORD — The father of a critically injured fisherman is crediting a speedy rescue effort by the New Bedford police, fire and EMS departments with saving his only son’s life after a serious accident at sea last Saturday night. “He’s still critical but he’s breathing on his own. Thank God for New Bedford fire and rescue. They did a fine job,” said Carl Albert, the mate aboard the clam boat Misty Dawn. “I already lost a brother and my father at sea so I didn’t want it to go to a third generation.” http://www.southcoasttoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20121108/NEWS/211080369/1011/TOWN10 http://bore-head007.newsvine.com/_news/2012/11/08/15031119-new-bedford-fire-department-boat-saves-critically-injured-fisherman-southcoasttodaycom

The Obama Administration’s Commerce Department Is Obstructing Justice. Swartwood II

What are they afraid of?

The findings, by Special Master Charles B. Swartwood III regarding NOAA’s fishing enforcement tactics, were completed in early May. They are said to be detailed, numerous and explosive. But that report remains hidden from the public. Both John Bryson, who resigned after his now-infamous June hit-and-run escapades in southern California, and acting Secretary Rebecca Blank have ignored multiple calls to make the latest report public. And so NOAA administrator Jane Lubchenco, whose shown nothing but contempt for Congress and any other oversight since 2009, when she took the reins of an agency that is even more dysfunctional now than it ever was then.
