Thank you so much for printing the stunning photograph by Carl Thompson of the Tongass Narrows' Sunset. Ketchikan was my home for a couple of decades, and this photograph really captures the gorgeous chiaroscuros there.
I thought Olney Webb's letter was hilarious, but I have to say I am deeply ambivalent about the jewelry store petition. On the one hand, I am cheering Helen Finney on -- go Helen, go! Let the citizens take back the town before it is too late! But on the other hand, I really look forward to shopping at Chris Elliott's emporium. I see a little mini-mall on Hopkins Alley where I can purchase tanzanite earrings in one shop, kumquats in another, and a McKinley Burger in the third.
And since I am sticking my
nose where I have no business doing so (according to so many
Sitnews contributors, because I moved) I also want to say I completely
support Aan Kadax Tseen's position on the bridge. All of these
things contribute to why I loved living in Ketchikan in spite
of the isolation and rain, and why I still long to return.
