Gravina Access Highway and
Bostwick Road: Immoral, Illegal, Unchecked
By Jessie Ballowe

To Whom It May Concern:
Gravina Island needs our help. I do not live close to it, I've
never seen it, but I do know about what is happening to it.
I know that we each have a power inside us to do good things.
Stopping the destruction caused by two road projects on this
island would qualify. I may be over 2,000 miles away but I can
see the need. Even from here. I write to ask you to do whatever
is in your power to help keep Gravina Island from further destruction.
The Gravina Access Highway and Bostwick Road projects need to
be stopped. Illegal dealings, immoral decisions, and unchecked
actions are leading to consequences that no one wants. I don't
feel that I need to list the many reasons that have leaded me
to this conclusion. If you feel compelled enough to learn and
act I hope you will see what needs to be done. I encourage you
to use all your resources. Gravina Island needs all the help
we can offer. Thank you for your time.

About: "Jessie looks forward
to visiting the Tongass and Ketchikan this year, and hopes that
when she does Gravina isn't fully roaded, and a reasonable Forest
Plan is in place."
