Bridges to Somewhere
By Terri Wenger
July 30, 2007
There is no question that you have rights and I don't have time
to sit and debate in a 5 year old fashion, what you can and cannot
In my letter no where did I mention your name, I was talking
to everyone that feels the need to meddle somewhere they are
no longer residing or paying taxes. Your letter was just the
one that put me over the edge. But you felt the right to point
your finger at Jerilyn and I. Well we are not the only ones to
feel this way, and I'm sure you felt this way when you resided
here when people tried to but in on your community.
My letter was just pointing out things I have heard in my community
of Ketchikan, concerns about children and families being able
to stay locally.
And I will say again - FOR THE BRIDGE, AGAINST THE BRIDGE - FOR
THE ROAD OR NOT - when you move back here and start paying local
taxes and actually start participating in the community that
you say you love so much, then maybe we can have a cup of coffee
and I will listen to your opinion, but now you're an outsider
and well your opinion just seems like meddling.
So sit down take a breather - have a cup of coffee and remember
I have rights too and I am constitutionally insured that I can
speak the way I feel also and I am a Ketchikan Tax Payer.
Please have a good evening Don. Don't stress on this subject
of the bridge it is really bad for your health, and just remember
if you voice your opinion others will voice back.
