Bridges & Roads to Somewhere
By Terri Wenger
July 24, 2007
My opinion only, but I am really tired of listening to people
who think they should run or be involved with a community 100's
or 1,000's of miles away in another states. I really don't care
about your credentials and that you lived here for a while or
maybe visited here ONCE.
To think that someone in Tennessee or any other state can sit
here and tell us that the citizens of Ketchikan are not important,
or that we want bridges to nowhere, WELL WE ARE SOMEWHERE, we
are here. I do not visit other open opinion letter sites in
other states and tell them they aren't important or what they
should do. Our city is at its max. Where are our children suppose
to live when they grow up. You can't find affordable housing
anywhere in this town. No wonder our youth are leaving this
Other communities can develop
their towns, and cities, but Ketchikan shouldn't be able too.
No matter which way you believe for bridges against bridges,
for roads or not, we don't need outsiders telling our people
in our town or state what we need. Just because other communities
and cities have ruined their towns, doesn't mean we will be ruining
As far as I'm concerned, WE
ARE SOMEBODY AND WE LIVE SOMEWHERE "IN KETCHIKAN ALASKA".
