Seeking more than an empty gesture

Posted: Tuesday, November 04, 2003

I was pleased that Senator Murkowski came to Juneau to hear what our community has to say about her bill to trade 12,000 acres of wonderful public land at Berners Bay for 3,000 acres of private land near Ketchikan - much of which is clearcut. But did she hear us? It seems to have been an empty - and expensive - gesture.

Please, Senator Murkowski, listen to your constituents. Berners Bay should be left in public hands so that we (and our children and grandchildren) may enjoy this very special area in our back yard.
