Emmys

It's grand being a community with an Emmy under its belt.

Two Emmys is even better, and that's not the full extent of Ketchikan's winning ways. It has received Emmys before.

This is the result of the Ketchikan Story Project, which started in 2008.

A feature on Ketchikan's timber industry years and another about its Bush pilots won at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Northwest Chapter over the weekend.

This is a great way for Ketchikan folks to tell the story about our community to those who haven't lived through it all. Not only do cruise ship passengers have the opportunity to view the films, but they are shown on Alaska Airlines flights and here locally — not everyone in Ketchikan experienced the timber years, and this gives us a way to be educated about our history.

Previous films feature Ketchikan's fishing industry, and its Native legacy. The next film to be premiered will be about Ketchikan's history and culture.

Ketchikan has many stories to tell. They're being told well, based on the receipt of the latest Emmys.
