Mr. Cowley the point is that the money was earmarked for Ketchikan, The bridge which was promised 30 years ago and the bridge was supposed to go the airport and since the airport is on Gravina then it was going there.

Since you seem to have deemed it necessary to attack me personally then I am addressing you personally. How long has it been since you lived here? Now that you live in Chickaloon do you drive to your airport?

Yes I almost missed the plane to my Mother's funeral because of the weather and have been late a time or two because the ferry could not run or was broken down. The Alaska government keeps saying they will get us an alternate method but never comes through. Now they have spent the last of the money earmarked for any kind of alternative method of getting to the airport and that includes bigger and better ferries.

So Now I REITERATE Governor Palin Stole the 199 million and is putting the other 34 million
out to bid for the mainland to have. Since that money was earmarked for Ketchikan don't you think we deserve to have it? Evidentially not.

Furthermore I don't want the planes to land in my driveway, that would be as stupid as your comment about it.
