Ketchikan: Youth Develop Leadership Skills by Joseph Branco - Leaders are seldom noticed until those moments of crisis that faces a school, a church, a city or a nation. Rudy Guliani was a good mayor, but on September 11th he emerged as a genuine leader. Seemingly calm and self-assured on the outside while his internal organs broiled he led the city of New York through its worst moment. Leaders in small scale and large scale possess a quality that tells everyone else that "it will be okay because together we will get through it". Leaders never stand alone; they stand as a member of the team. - More...

photosL. Ron Hubbard's Alaska Adventure; His long winter in Ketchikan - For such a small city in such a remote location, Ketchikan has had its fair share of experience in welcoming the rich and famous. Names that come to mind are Bing Crosby, John Wayne, Cary Grant, as well as Olivia Newton-John, Bill Gates, and Chubby Checker - plus many, many others!
