A Healthy Community
By Diane Gubatayao


February 03, 2006

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.

Warmest regards,
