Entry Title Date
Tribute To David Grannis January 26, 2016
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"I also want to echo many of the comments that our committee staff has made about David including one that was passed onto me where a colleague said that he “has been the rock upon which the staff’s foundation is built.” He has been a solid and stable leader that has provided the confidence that the staff needs to flourish. David’s intellect and knowledge of the intelligence community and his communication skills in conveying that knowledge to committee members has gained him the respect and admiration of the entire committee. Finally, his demeanor and behavior in dealing with people, both inside and outside the committee, on both sides of the aisle and in both bodies of Congress, as well as with leaders of the intelligence community and the executive branch, is an example to be emulated."

Recognizing The 60Th Anniversary Of Orlando Science Center January 12, 2016
Daniel Webster, R-FL
"On July 2, 1960, the museum opened the first planetarium in Florida. The planetarium was a technological feat in its day; NASA astronauts used it for briefings. On March 23, 1970, the museum displayed a moon rock brought back by the crew of Apollo 11. The rock drew over 4,200 visitors making it the museum’s largest single-day attendance to-date. Over the past 60 years, Orlando Science Center has achieved significant growth and continues to inspire learning."

Jeff Fortenberry, R-NE
"Their likenesses are in the rock, timeless and unchanging; but the ideals they represent must be reestablished in each generation. The renewal of America will depend, in large part, on whether or not we can grasp what these leaders stood for and whether or not we can make the sacrifices necessary to reclaim our country’s potential in this time, our time."
