Open Letter to Ketchikan Police:
By Amber Anderson
September 21, 2010
I wanted to express my appreciation for your presence in the
Schoenbar school zone this morning (09/20/21). It was nice to
see a lot of cars tapping their breaks and stopping for kids
in the crosswalks. I've lived on this bend for 3 years and have
been frustrated with the lack of concern for children walking
to school and bus stops. My children and I have often been nearly
hit by people in a rush and/or on their cell phones. This is
not something I thought I had to worry about when we bought our
home here. I was naive in thinking it would be a safe walk since
we live in a school zone.
It always brings a smile to our faces to see you present in the
school zones. It sends a reminder to people to slow down and
watch for kids. I thank you and the kids thank you. You had
a bus stop full of cheering kids this morning. Thanks for sending
the message that you care about their safety.
About: " I'm a mother
that has lived Schoenbar Road for three years. I walk my kids
to the bus stop every school day."
