Rep. Derek Kilmer took to the House floor Thursday to say a few words about a certain someone who schooled him — and quite possibly most of Port Angeles, Wash. — in the finer points of hard work and perseverance. “I think he may have taught my entire hometown,” the Washington Democrat said of his father’s staggering reach following 51 years devoted to feeding young minds. The elder Kilmer was even able to bask in the well-earned praise, as he was up in the gallery during the congratulatory address.
