...for medical support

On behalf of my daughter and my family, I wish to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone's prayers, moral support and monetary support for helping us go to Seattle to have the pacemaker surgery for Catherine L. Johnson.

I would like to thank all of the businesses, owners of businesses, Native corporations and individuals who opened their hearts to my daughter known only by her name. Here are the businesses as follows: Totem Treasures, Ben Franklin Store, Costco Wholesale, Western Auto-Marine Store, Perkins Postal Contractor, Travelodge Hotel, MiCasa Restaurant, GCI, Miss Scarlet's Greenery, Heritage Coffee, Alaska Fudge Co., Kake Seafood, Chilly Willy Car Wash, Honda Hut Team Toyota, Nugget Alaska Outfitters, Fiddlehead Restaurant, The Prospector Hotel, TK Maguire Restaurant, Super Bear, Taku Smokery, Suzanne's Hallmark, The Plum Tree, Mount Roberts Tram, Body Essentials, Northern Hot Spots, Blockbuster Video, Alaska Laundry & Dry Cleaning, Wings of Alaska, Hoonah Trading Store, Tideland Tackle Store (Hoonah), The Black Raven Store, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, fellow patrons at the following bingo halls at ANB, Grand Camp, Filipino and T & H Bingo.

Next, the businesses and organizations that made monetary donations are as follows: The Driftwood Hotel, Super 8 Motel, Bullwinkle's Pizza, Mike's Refrigeration, Douglas Indian Association, Ray Paddock Emergency Fund Committee, Pres. Edward Thomas w/NCAI Convention, Hoonah Indian Association, Sealaska Corporation, Goldbelt Inc., and the Yan Shu Kaa Dance Group for performing and their donation.

Next I want to especially thank special individuals for helping us morally and spiritually, and they are our parents - Sue Ann K. Lindoff, Glenn and Lenora Johnson, Harlan and Lavina Adams, my grandmother Emily Williams and all of our family who came forth to help us. A special thank you to all of the individuals who also came forth to help us in our time of need. Unfortunately that list is too great to add to this list, but you are in our hearts and minds for helping us.

Our efforts raised enough to help us with our room and board while in Seattle. However, we will need to go back next year for another examination. It has been a month since we came back from Seattle and my daughter is doing fine. Finally, I want to thank all of the medical staff and personnel who found this problem and treated this condition and they are: SEARHC, State of Alaska Health Center and the Seattle's Children's Center. If it weren't for everyone's prayers, support and donations, we would not have been able to make it through this crisis. If there are questions regarding my daughter's condition you can call 364-2583 and leave a message. You can also call 463-4839 and my mom can help answer questions. As time grows closer for our next trip I will inform everyone when the time will be and be doing more fund raising efforts. Thank you everyone for your help.

If I missed anyone, I apologize; as you can see there was a lot of help.

...for bike support

I'd like to thank all the people who made this week's Tour of Juneau and the Juneau Freewheelers cycling season a great success. Over 30 riders participated in at least one of the four races, which is outstanding participation. It would not have been possible without race directors and volunteers.

Lou Edwards directed the prologue and road race as well as an outstanding final awards ceremony at Lena Loop. Lou also volunteered at the time trial. Rose Welton and Scott Fischer organized the Eaglecrest hill climb. Lyda Travis organized the time trial with help from Dennis Travis, Tim Travis and Bernie Sorenson. Caro Polley, Mergne DeSmet and Carole Edwards assisted in the prologue. Bill Cummings, Bill and Barbara Johnson, Rose Welton, Carole Edwards and Dennis Travis assisted in the road race. All this volunteer help was greatly appreciated.

Our club sponsors gave generous awards and door prizes throughout the year. Juneau Racquet Club, Mountain Gears, Taku Smokeries and Valley Lumber were excellent sponsors. Foggy Mountain Shop and Adventure Sports gave special door prizes for the Kluane relay. Foggy Mountain Shop also has donated storage space for club race supplies.

A special thanks goes to the riders from out of town who participated in our races. Dan Harrington, Dan Kelliher and Steve Williams were excellent competitors and are always welcome in Juneau.

Without support of our sponsors and active volunteers within our club we could not put on events throughout the year such as Bike to Work Day, Tour of Juneau and our many races.

Corrections: In my first e-mail of the standings, Betsy Fischer should have had 24 points (as listed in the paper). I double-checked Chris Scholes' points and the e-mail total is correct (not the paper). He finished fourth. Another timing slip-up resulted in Friday's time trial times being listed a minute faster than they actually were (if you keep records - the time listed would be a formidable PR), but we don't have to tell anyone that...
