Sorry to be chiming in twice in the same week but I think we've
been overlooked here in Ketchikan.....again.
I just voted on the website to select the design for the Alaska
State twenty-five cent piece. The choices were:
Polar Bear-Midnight Sun, ( my pick)
Dog Mushing-North to the Future
Gold Panner-Denali-The Great One
Grizzly Bear with salmon in its jaws-The Great Land
Now let us think of what has been the most newsworthy item about
Alaska in the last 18 months..... I think many of you will agree
with me......one of the choices should have been-
KETCHIKAN-BRIDGE TO NOWHERE
Sorry, couldn't resist, here's the website if you wish to vote
