RE: Ferries? WHAT ferries...

Dear Sitnews,

I winced and laughed when I read June Allen's letter about Channel 11 in Anchorage running the old ferry coverage. I can't tell you how many times I have chatted with clerks in Anchorage about Ketchikan only to
have them ask me if I "live in the Bush." It's rare that I run across anyone up north who actually knows where the fourth largest city in Alaska is! I'm with June- it's frustrating, embarrasing and laughable. No wonder we have such a hard time getting funding for regional projects. Maybe we should lead the movement for a new state- South Alaska!

We miss you in Ketchikan, June!
