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.

I give Mr. LoBaido my heart felt thanks and am proud once again to be an American and a Ketchikanite.
