Only a few more weeks until the breeze blows those big boats out of town for the winter. It’s the best time to collect those noteworthy scraps of wind, so keep your ears open and send what you hear to the windy one at editor@skagwaynews.com, or drop off at the News Depot on Broadway and we will enter you in a monthly drawing for a copy of Best of the Skagway Police Blotter, Vols 1 and 2, featuring the best of “Heard on the Wind.”
