Marigolds that had glowed yellow and orange in August, looked as if they’d donned brown trench coats.

Chiniak logging is devastating
To the Editor: The logging operations out in the Chiniak area have been going on now for over three years. The devastation is hard to believe — tens of thousands of trees removed. What’s left are stumps, thousands of piles of tree debris, tree limbs lying everywhere on the ground, mile upon mile of logging roads, open gravel pit sites everywhere, a large scale runoff of top soil into Chiniak Bay, impacted salmon s...
