Eyes on Gravina
By Roberta McCreary
February 27, 2007
Thank you Gregory for giving us a comprehensive analysis of the
situation about the roads being built on Gravina Island. Personally
I was appalled to read that the basic laws that have been adopted
to protect our environment have been put aside with the result
of apparent degradation of the land adjacent to this road building
We have a wonderful place to live here in Southeast Alaska.
Can't we think beyond the immediacy of commercial objectives
to a longer term vision that not only assures the ongoing opportunity
for commerce but also protects our environment for the people
who will follow us in the future?
This lack of long-term planning is very sad to me, when we have
such a grand opportunity to do it better.
