Dear Ketchikan Residents, I have been living in Ketchikan for the last 5 1/2 years. I consider it my home. I recently was in a boating accident and spent 3 hours in the cold Gulf of Alaska on my way to fish herring and Salmon. I was traveling on the Northern Belle that went down quickly in the Gulf. It was a both horrifiy and life changing experience. I wanted to write because it was noted in several sources that I was from various places in the Northwest. I have been avoiding national media.

I wanted to thank Ketchikan for all the support and love I have recieved and be very clear that I consider Ketchikan where I am from. I am proud of Ketchikan and especially proud that all of you who helped shape my life before this happened, preparing me to endure, preservere, overcome and enjoy the simple things in life. Thru grace I was calm, fought and survived.

In the true spirit of Alaska and the true gritty get the job done in your own way, I am proud to say I am from SOMEWHERE-Ketchikan Alaska. Bridge to NOWHERE- my ass. Thank you. Can't wait to heal and come visit.
