Hate to tell you, but the Boom Days are gone, unless you have a Davis-Bacon job and are willing to work outside in all kinds of weather (no snow days allowed) for 8 to 16 hours a day, depending on the season, than it just ain't happening.
Ketchikan is a town that pulls
together, during other folk's tragedies, to help with housing,
food and comfort, and this is worth more than any retail price
on any item. After one year Sir, I don't feel you have any right
to complain, as the planes fly out, as well as in, and the town
is not holding you hostage. PS.. Order the 'less expensive'
products online and then see how you feel about the "shipping
cost being almost as much (if not more) because we live in Alaska.
About: "Lived in Ketchikan over 20 years, plus have lived in Fairbanks, Anchorage and the Aleutian Chain"
