Recognizing the efforts of Willette Janes in your recent Empire article caught my attention. She is definitely to be applauded for her time and energy. Many families have lived on both sides of Gastineau Channel, even after the infamous "Cave In."
Some of those known for the chronicling of early years have left us. It is reassuring to have such a capable and dedicated lady working to preserve the very unique past of this wonderful community.
