That said, I have been curious as to what the dispostion of the funds from the land sales at Ward Cove is. Where are they, and what has happened to the original fund for creating jobs? I know some money was loaned to Ketchikan Ship and Drydock. Have they been paying it back? Hasn't that money been going back into the originating fund? Shouldn't the money from the land sales of Ward Cove and Mud Bight be going back into that fund to be loaned out for increasing the jobs and economy as originally intended?
