What's up with the Navy ships in Commencement Bay?

I have heard a rumor about the cost of keeping the two ships docked in Commencement Bay - they have been there for years - and I just want to get the facts. Anyone know?

VA Golf Course

You have probably seen the VA Golf Course at American Lake in the news lately. They are trying to raise money to build the back 9. Jack Nicklaus has donated his design team to the cause and now it is just a matter of raising the 3m or so required to build it. It is amazing what this golf course does for our veterans. It is designed for the disabled but is utilized by many veterans and active duty personnel. We have disabled in wheelchairs golfing in specially designed golf carts, the blind rehabilitation clinic brings patients over for some fun, and many more of our military, in all phases of rehab and recovery, come to relax and have some fun and exercise. It is a very heartwarming and humbling experience to see these brave, strong, determined men and women. If you want more information or would like to donate to this worthwhile cause, feel free to contact the Friends of the American Lake Golf Course or me at
