Last night as I was driving down town I observed the flag painted
on the roof of Tongass Trading. I though it was great and that
was before I read about it on Sitnews. I'm proud that our community
was chosen for the honor by Mr. LoBaido in Alaska. It just proves
once again that we are the First City and rightfully so.
We may not all agree on the

mission. - More...
