The Gravina Highway construction
started. Gravina is blazing. The runners are now hotfooted.
It is just the beginning of the harm. Perhaps if residents have a jolt of pride for Gravina, they will act.
I am a dreamer, I believe people can always change their attitude and decide to act.
So, the race has begun but
it is far from over and Ketchikan residents still have time to
act in Gravina's favor. Over the political party, over the old
resentment against environmentalists, there is a right choice
concerning Gravina: at the moment there is an inane highway project
costing 8 million dollars per mile, which goes nowhere, which
means nothing more than money, logging, and difficult loss. It
is time to fight!
