RE: Thanks Bill & 4th of July

How did you miss Bill Williams in the parade, Dave? He was marching alongside his wife, albeit without asking us to vote for him.

I, too, would like to give my thanks to Bill for all his years of legislative service, as well as thank him for being a kind, openminded person! I think he would have been a shoo-in for the Senate seat had he decided to stay active in politics.

I would also like to respond to the allegation in another letter that this was a "lame" Fourth of July celebration in Ketchikan this year. While I was a bit disappointed that the fireworks seemed to end a bit early (and I have since found out that it was apparently due to our precious gift, rainfall!), I had perhaps the best Independence Day I can remember. I loved that it was mostly a "local" affair.
