"The Man" from Ketchikan

You'll have to reference the above article from Anchorage on Jim Elkins' recent passing since the Ketchikan Daily News is a "closed class" newspaper.

In any event, Mr. Elkins worked as Ketchikan's lobbyist in Juneau for years prior to becoming a member of the state House of Representatives. He was true to SEAS and our goals and to all commercial fishermen. We were proud to have worked with him during his tenure and prior to that and we will miss him greatly. He had a heart of gold and a spirit that soared like an eagle.

As the story mentions his replacement, Mr. Kyle Johanson, I am sure that Jim would approve of the long hours and hard work that Representative Johanson is doing in his stead. We see a bright future for Kyle and he is filling Jim's shoes nicely.
