No Means No

What part of no needs auditing? I see the people from the Matsu are relentless about moving the Capitol and 'The Bridge to Nowhere' advocates are no less stubborn.

On Annette Island we have a nice new road to our North End (Ketchikan side). We will be making do with a small ferry, the Lituya. True it doesn't cost $350 million but it gets the job done. The new road here is for opening up our Island a bit to outside investment and bringing some to the local businesses in Ketchikan.

You don't hear us crying around for the Queen Mary II. Give it up you guys, No is No.

When this road on the Island is finished, we look forward to development on a larger scale, such as re-opening our airport for business. It's much bigger than the one in Ketchikan, much safer and it will be accessed by a very scenic road to somewhere.

From just across the channel from Ketchikan - closer than the distance it would have taken the bridges,
