Editor Sitnews,

There are moments in community entrainment that are or should be political free. Being blindsided, even forewarned if that were the case, is not a welcoming aspect when one anticipates joining with other community members which one may not be politically aligned, yet the thread of a community being is when all join for the common purpose of sharing joy.

Maintaining focus on the serious issues that face our Nation have an arena to debate and share opinions. Editorial columns, letters to the Editor, Chamber of Commerce lunches, announced gatherings with a specific agenda, and political candidate forums, all are clear by definition.

The front page of the Ketchikan Daily News depicting the photo of Ms. Welsh's political statement, while apparently meeting the criteria of the program theme, was in my opinion, atrociously out of place.

A sharp tongue, a knowledge and use of an intelligent statement is worthy of injection in the above mentioned defined public arenas. Ms. Welsh choosing the Wearable Art Show chose poorly.

A Palin Supporter, for her firm principles regarding moral, religious, family convictions,
