The Laker "James L. Oberstar" Pays Tribute To Its Namesake

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - At about the same time that funeral services were being held in Maryland for Congressman Jim Oberstar on Thursday morning, the laker that bears his name "The Honorable James L. Oberstar" arrived at the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth at around 9:30 a-m.  As the "Oberstar" approached the bridge, the ship's master blew a full, formal Interlake Fleet salute in honor of the congressman.  Boat watchers along the ship canal then observed a moment of silence to reflect on the countless contributions that Jim Oberstar made to the region, the Great Lakes and the country.
