The Bridge and Ethanol
By Charles Moon


November 29, 2005

It appears that Ketchikan's bridge probably will not be built. I can't see the state giving us the money to build it as it's not very popular up north either. But how about getting the funding to subsidize the ferry? Free ferry rides to walk ons and cheap prices for cars and trucks would be good. We can develop Gravina just as well by ferry, maybe not as easy but it's still possible.

Also what happened to the proposed Ethanol plant at Ward Cove? If we could produce Ethanol here with a local work force that would mean more jobs in Ketchikan and the gas money stays in Alaska and not overseas to our potential enemies.
