A Healthy Community
By Diane Gubatayao

Kudos to Mike Harpold for being a Big Brother, and kudos to Ketchikan
for sustaining such a great program. As I work in Sacramento,
California, a region rich in diverse resources, I reflect on
how blessed Ketchikan is by comparison. That may seem odd considering
the extensive things available in this area. But there is a wealth
to be had in community connections, personal relationships, and
other intangibles that are the hallmark of Ketchikan.
I salute all of you who strive
tirelessly to build a healthy community.
And, finally, congratulations
to Dick and Mary Kaufman for their well deserved Chamber award.
There is no fair measure of the time and energy they devote to
this awesome website. Thanks, Dick and Mary.
