I agree 100 percent with Mr. Jim Wilson (Empire letters, Feb. 3) regarding giving the go-ahead to Coeur to get the Kensington Mine going. It is a good thing to put work on the back and food on the table, in a responsible way.
I was at the Fireside Chat last Friday, where David Stone and Scott Willis presented the historical documentation of Juneau's mining and hydropower successes through the Nugget Creek Power plant. It was located near our present Mendenhall. Look at a what a beautiful recreation area we have out of all that now.
