What happened with the Christmas Lights?
By Terry Miles


December 23, 2009

As everyone might have noticed, the Christmas "Snowflake" Lights that we've enjoyed in the past that hang on the power poles along Tongass Ave. are, at best, let's say, "Random", this year. I was wondering why? In years past the decorations hung from at least every other power pole.

I know a significant amount of work goes into prepping and maintaining these. The reason I know is because my wife is one of the people that does it. I know that several lights were prepared for this year, but never made it on to the poles. Why was that?

I've heard rumors but nobody has had the courage to say why. Any "Official" explanations?
