The following is a letter to the editor and does not reflect the views of The Skagway News.

People of Skagway, I would like to put a challenge out to all you railroaders and anybody else that is laid off/ drawing unemployment. Why can’t you look up people in need of help here and help them instead of sitting doing nothing but drinking and waiting. When you get older and you need help, I pray there are still people that will.

So get off your butts and help. There’s always wood to be split or just talk to them and see what they need. But true to yourselves, be greedy and help only yourselves.
