Ketchikan/ Statewide: Alaska's October Unemployment Drops Slightly; Ketchikan's Unemployment Rises - Alaska's unemployment rate fell one-tenth of a percentage point in October to 6.6 percent according to Dan Robinson, an economist at the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Over the last five years the average October increase has been four-tenths of a percentage point. This year's decline may not be significant, however, since it is well within the statistical margin of error.

Ketchikan's unemployment rate rose from 6.1 percent to 8.0 percent in October. According to the Alaska Department of Labor 6,618 in the work force were employed with 578 reported as unemployed in October. - More...

photosKetchikan, Alaska - Let There Be Light! -- Citizens Light & Power and then KPU - At the Incorporation of the City of Ketchikan back in the summer of 1900, the little town on Tongass Narrows was powered largely by optimism and resolve. The Alaska Gold Rush of '98 had focused the eyes of the world on the nation's Last Frontier. The courageous and confident were among those who "rushed" north to participate not just in the search for gold but in the founding of a great new American territory. Ketchikan's pioneer founders moved quickly to develop such modern amenities as electric lights and indoor plumbing. - Read the rest of this story by June Allen....
