Generally, I try to keep my big fat mouth shut but once again,
I just gotta say:
Over the course of the last year or more, I have quietly sat
by and read the incessant babbling of Mr. Hoff. I have collected
just a few of his eloquent remarks which are listed below.
"I believe discrimination and racism is alive and well in
Ketchikan and Alaska."
"It is time to fight for what is ours. Remember, it is the
Caucasian people that are raping tribal members of all our natural

"I am urging the Democratic Party, Independence Party, Green

to vote out these money hungry greedy leeches Republican incumbents
and candidates that will destroy and ruin Alaska."
"Stupid minds comes stupid ideas . . . a theory I have."
"How arrogant! Well..."These people in Washington,
D.C. that want this bridge to nowhere, They're just a bunch of
drunks," Aan Kadax Tseen says."
"The real problem is America needs to build our own fuel
refineries and open the oil fields in Oklahoma and Texas that
is tucked away for a raining day or start a war with the Arab
Countries and take their oil and gas like the good old days like
they did ours in America."

You proclaim to be some sort of Elder and spokesperson for the
Native people of Ketchikan and Alaska and yet you constantly
speak of racism, separation and a negative view of anything that

What kind of example are you trying to set for the young people
in our communities? What message are you trying to send?
I have yet to see you submit a positive response to anything
with regard to economic growth in SE Alaska. I have yet to see
you submit anything positive period. As a concerned Native Alaskan,
I would think that you would want to see events occur that benefit
everyone in this region, regardless of race.
Hope all is well down there in Hixon, TN. (How many miles is
that from Ketchikan?) Perhaps there is a spotted owl that needs
This, Mr. Hoff, is my own opinion.
