Schoenbar: End the nonsense
By Susan Doherty


June 21, 2005

So, the front page of the newspaper says Schoenbar will not be done. Is anyone else out there so mad they can hardly see straight?? We have been patient to the point of stupidness. So what can we do? At this point I don't care who is responsible, both sides I'm sure. McGraw has been awarded other contracts in SE and has demonstrated they have no regard for the hardship this situation has created for the entire community.

So, what can you and I do? I'm not sure, but I am seriously considering a community campaign to bombard McGraw's fax machine and telephone with letters and comments of concern. Perhaps a "watch" on SE projects that they are potential bidders on, and hundreds of letters to potential victim communities of what they have done here in Ketchikan might get an additional worker or two on site. I'll go for a long run or bike ride before doing anything rash, maybe I'll come to a more calm decision.

Meanwhile, anyone out there have any good ideas of how to put an end to this nonsense?
