Know Knowles = NO Knowles

The morning shift arrives at the Ward Cove Pulp Mill in Ketchikan, Alaska, Monday, March 24, 1997, to relieve the night shift on the mill's last day of production. The mill is closing down after 43 years of operation, leaving its own 500 employees and thousands of others who depend on the mill's business pondering an uncertain future.

In 1997 both President Clinton and Gov. Knowles are employed. And how many Ketchikan residents move elsewhere to find work? Almost 10 years later and both former Gov. Knowles and his ex gov./pres buddy Clinton are out of work and both looking for a job. In a couple of years we will be able to keep Clinton looking for work. And now it is "our time" to tell Knowles he is fired before he gets hired.

Just say "NO to Knowles".
