Tolling Bells
By Al Johnson


August 20, 2007

Dear Editor,

Regarding too many jewelry stores, many ways to look at/or cook, breast, harvesting kumquats and such, the other bell tolling issue it the location and number of churches. My gosh, and in neighborhoods close to public schools.

There is a specific distance that liquor stores and bars are allowed from pubic schools. Churches, like in Church and State should be required to adhere to a distance standard, or perhaps shades of Schoenbar extravaganza, move the schools.

All the above said with tongue in cheek. Don't you just love political correctness? What fun.

Ketchikan is quickly gaining National notoriety with various subjects. Bridges, jewelry stores, firing Superintendents of the Year to name just a few. What it really represents in my opinion, is that Ketchikan is gaining a reputation as a sour place to live, that being said on a bright sunny day!

Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.
