Last retort to you Mr. McColley on the bridge issue. You have
made up your mind to have the United States of America taxpayers
pay for a bridge to Pennock Island so you can drive to your property.
$240 million dollars of our hard earned tax dollars.
Who cares about Juneau, Sitka or Kodiak. So they have bridges
but the costs in those days are not near the costs today to build
Yes Mike, I miss the fishing in Ketchikan. I miss the subsistence
food gathering the most. One day I will move back to Ketchikan
and one day I will be buried on Pennock Island Tribal burial
Matter of fact, I will be coming up to Ketchikan this coming
summer. To fish, visit family, Tribal members and friends.
I will be or help organize a massive clean up on our Tribal grave
yard sites on Pennock Island to show respect to our Tribal ancestors
and show them we are still alive. I will even enjoy roasting
a hot dog on a stick while we are on the beach. Mike, you are
welcome to join us.
