photosKetchikan: Honoring the Fallen, Past and Present - Yesterday's wartime Memorial Day in Ketchikan was attended by approximately 50 people who paid homage to today's and the past generations of servicemen and servicewomen who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

This year's observance carried added significance because of the war in Iraq where the sons and daughters of Ketchikan residents serve and have served, and where more than 800 Americans have died in service to their nation. - Read more & view photos...

new gifHoward Dean: Electronic Voting ­ Not Ready For Prime Time - In December 2000, five Supreme Court justices concluded that a recount in the state of Florida's presidential election was unwarranted. This, despite the desire of the Florida Supreme Court to order a statewide recount in an election that was decided by only 537 votes. In the face of well-documented voting irregularities throughout the state, the U.S. Supreme Court's decision created enormous cynicism about whether the votes of every American would actually be counted. Although we cannot change what happened in Florida, we have a responsibility to our democracy to prevent a similar situation from happening again. - Read more...

photosAlaska's Deepwater Highway; A part of Alaska history - When the first Alaska state ferry sailed northbound through the Inside Passage of Alaska on its maiden voyage in January of 1963, there was rejoicing along the entire route from Ketchikan to Haines at the head of Lynn Canal! At last! Cars and even trucks and vans could now travel to and from isolated island-bound towns all along the 450-mile length of Southeastern Alaska's Panhandle. At either end they could roll off the ferry's ramp onto terra firma, connected to road systems north or south! The roadless towns of the famed Inside Passage finally had a "highway" from Prince Rupert B.C. to Haines, Alaska - even if it happened to be paved with salt water and used marine charts instead of road maps. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen...
