Need for pools
By Morgan Doubleday


September 16, 2008

Many thanks to my friend Zig Ziegler for the great pool comments for Ketchikan. I write this because we have a pool here in Sitka at the Hames Center, on Sheldon Jackson campus which has closed its doors. The property likely will be parceled out and the gym and pool facility are very important for Sitka and I'm not sure they see its true value.

I spoke with a woman from China living in a city of 16 million and they did not have a facility like ours here in Sitka. We have 9,000 people here. We need to preserve this facility for our lucky folks. Thanks for your time.
