Sea Lion Stories & Brick
in the Wall
by Bill Ayers
March 18, 2005
Sea Lion Stories: I too have heard of sea lions hauling fishermen
away from their boats while trying to clear fouled propellers.
This was in Valdez & Cordova during the '89 oil spill. I
remember thinking that the stories were so similar that there
had to be a reason, perhaps Mr. Fruehan is right about them trying
to protect us from the damaging propellers.
Brick in the Wall: Does anyone
remember the old Billikan Bowl? It was a vacant grey building
in a grey town for a long time, then it turned into the U of
A Southeast Robertson Building and got a great mural paint-job
during the '80s.
How about we put a great S.E.
Alaska mural on the new 3rd Ave. bypass wall? I see it every
day from Tongass and it just reminds of that song "another
brick in the wall", but it could look so cool & give
our visitors such a taste of what we are if it had a mural as
great as the one on the ol' Billikan Bowl!
