On the subject of bears...
By Vanessa Nowland

I don't think that trapping and disposing of bears is the answer
to keeping our neighborhoods safe and our garbage in the cans.
Take a trip down to any local hardware store and purchase a tie
down strap, bot bungee cords and make sure your garbage is secure.
Rinse out food containers before throwing them away. Store meat
packaging in the freezer until garbage pickup day. If all else
fails drive your household garbage to the Solid Waste Facility,
it won't cost anything extra and pretty soon the bears will realize
the garbage cans in Ketchikan are not an easy food source. It
is our responsibility to keep our trash, our neighborhoods and
our wildlife safe.
