Update: Morning Bus Stops
By Amber Anderson

Ketchikan never ceases to amaze me. The community is very strong and alive here in Ketchikan. People in this community take matters to heart, make a difference and change for the good in our community.

It's been nearly a month since I posted my letter about school bus stop issues and I am still having concerned citizens ask if these situations have improved.

Change and improvement were immediate. Parents have talked with their children and I'm seeing more adults at the bus stops. Kids seem happy and are making friends. No further complaints reported to me. Although, there will always be minor things of course as we would expect from large numbers of kids waiting for their buses.

Thank you to all of the parents who have spoken to your children about this issue and/or are being more present at bus stops. It is obvious that your concern is making a big difference.

This is one example why I love Ketchikan. I am easily reminded how people in this community come together.
