Reunion Picnic, 2006 (Photos by Carole Housholder Radasch,
Heather Robertson, Candy Cloudy Bartsch, Lynda Zaugg, Bev Zaugg,
and Bob Terhar) - Hugs, smiles, ice cream and visits in the park.
Hot summer weather, a cool
sea breeze, large shade trees, a picnic shelter and wading pool.
It must be the Edmonds City
Park on the fourth Sunday of July-July 23, 2006, to be exact-and
it must be the annual Ketchikan Reunion Picnic. - More....

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony - Though the celebration went of
without a hitch, it was not your typical ribbon-cutting ceremony.
It was a ceremony of traditions-both
old and new.
District One Representative
Jim Elkins took time from his legislative duties to come and
do the honors cutting the yellow fire-scene ribbon. But no ribbon
before or since has been cut with a jaws-of-life, a hydraulic
tool for extracting people from car wrecks. - More...

Emergency Responders Find You? - It was the middle of the
night when North Tongass Fire Department EMS Lieutenant Jerry
Kiffer got a radio call that an elderly woman was having a medical
problem. During the call the 911 dispatcher, located in downtown
Ketchikan, informed Kiffer that the woman lived near North Point
Higgins Road and gave him the woman's address. But due to privacy
regulations the dispatcher could not relay the woman's name.

Builder Preserves History in 3-D - Take a good close look
at these boats. Start with the Evening Star and observe
her smooth lines, high white mast and forward-style house. On
her stern sits a dory full of bright orange buoys, coils of ground
line, a set of oars. And don't miss her green canvas staysail,
covered baiting table and deck loaded with ground line anchors,
flagpole markers and other fishing gear. - More...

progressing. Nothing was happening. We were about to get kicked
out of the condo we were renting because it was the busy season
in Florida. And we were spending money like a drunken sailor."
