White Cliff Center is a great
By Margaret Antonsen

What a great idea! The White Cliff Center is a great idea for
a number of reasons:
1) It provides a place for senior citizens that is not in isolation.
What could be worse than to have a Senior Center where they (we)
do not interact with people of all ages? The White Cliff Center
would provide them (us) with a place that is their own and a
place that they can contribute and interact with other organizations
of this community;
2) There is adequate parking;
3) Many of our historic buildings have been lost or altered beyond
historical recognition: Main School - gone; Spruce Mill- gone;
the Marine Ways - gone; the High School - transformed; even Ketchikan
bars are now jewelry stores. An Alaskan town that is just tour
shops is not an Alaskan town but a tourist mall. We need to
save some of our historic buildings for our sense of identity
and as places of interest for visitors.
Please support our elder citizens. Support the year round residents
of Ketchikan. Vote "yes" for the Propositions #1 &
Ketchikan, AK - USA
