Metlakatlans Benefit Ketchikan Businesses
By Virginia E. Atkinson


October 10, 2007

Now that the chances of constructing a ferry terminal has been shot down like it means nothing, just remember that Metlakatlans spent their paychecks in Ketchikan every payday. Remember when the state dividends come out, many Metlakatlans choose to spend their permanent fund in Ketchikan.

When you people in Ketchikan pass by the old building that 'could have been' just remember ALL the support Ketchikan gets from Metlakatlans during Christmas and other holidays, and this is what Metlakatlans get in return: a Big Fat "NO" vote after all the years Metlakatlans have been supporting Ketchikan businesses for so many decades.

What a shame! It's too bad Metlakatlans have no other place to take their business and be appreciated.
