Take plea from victim's family to heart

In the Nov. 22 edition of the Chilkat Valley News my friends had two paid advertisements on pages 4 and 9. I wish you all to know that we are from a close-knit ski town of 150 people and the loss of our friends’ son Nick has been devastating to us all. These letters were written from the heart but also with much fact checking, phone calls and emails in order to piece together accurate information. We hope that you, as a tight-knit community, take their words to heart and ask your powers that be “to do their job” in order to prevent another tragedy like this from happening again to another family and community.
