... to the doctors and nurses of Petersburg General Hospital.
The family of Marie R. James would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the loving care you provided for our mother during her last weeks with us. We saw the love you showed our mother through the gentle care each of you provided while she was in the hospital.
To doctors Mark Tuccillo and John Bergren, a special thank you for providing the best medical care available. Thank you also for the compassion you showed to our family during a difficult time of our mother's life.
We especially acknowledge the care provided by Linda, Laurie, Norman, Candice and Jennifer, as well as the many support staff that work behind the scenes at the hospital. The time spent watching our mother decline in health I know was as hard for you as it was for us. However, you continued because of your dedication to provide the most loving care you could to make our mother comfortable, and for this we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Petersburg is a better place because of the quality of care all of you provide to the residents of this community.
With our deepest thanks,
Arcadio and Wilma Tagaban and family
Pauline Young and family
Felipe and Maryann Tagaban
Dorothy and Patrick Owen and family
Lenora and William Evans
Michael and Sandy Tagaban and family

... for all the help.
From Jan. 25-29, the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) held a training for the Alaska Youth in Action program, a student-directed effort to combat underage drinking. High school and middle school students and their adult supervisors were trained in how alcohol affects the developing brain and how they can work within their communities to prevent underage drinking by working with law enforcement, addressing local and state leaders and utilizing the media. Participants attended from Ketchikan, Sitka, Wrangell, Anchorage, Dillingham and Juneau and took the opportunity to address state legislators about underage drinking issues and the need for an alcohol excise tax.
We would like to thank Karen and Phil Greeney at Mt. Juneau Inn Bed and Breakfast and Phil and Clovis Dennis at Alaska Wolf House Bed and Breakfast for providing comfortable accommodations for the out-of-town participants. Mt. Juneau Inn also hosted our training sessions, and both bed and breakfasts served as our homes away from home. McDonald's donated Value Meals for the participants, and Gross Alaska provided movie passes. Budget Rent-a-Car gave us an excellent deal on our rental van. And we thank all of the youth and adults who participated in the training to learn more on underage drinking.
