Care-takers of our town
by Arilee Bird

There seems to be a dis-ease in
the "care-takers" of our town.... albeit like other
tourist towns I've lived in. All I see is once the "town"
is gobbled up by 'outsiders' flashing big $$$$$ - duty free"
jewelry or whatever businesses - then we must remember beautiful
old towns. The people who "work" there have to be bussed
in or drive miles and miles to go to work their four or five
Here ya go Ketchikan, but you
ain't got no Copper Mountain, and I tell ya now, North Revilla
is not going to be your "stoop" grounds. Build a kajillion
dollar bridge so that us workin' flunkies can camp out over there
- if we can afford what you're gonna charge us to walk over your
bridge. I'll betcha they'll charge us to walk it too!!!! Lie
Like Rugs! Ah, I want to move away from here because I can't
