I saw the following news item the other day:

Ferry service to start in Ouzinkie

KODIAK, Alaska - Ouzinkie (YOU'-zink-ee) is about to become part of the Alaska Marine Highway System.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports (http://bit.ly/xdb3ea) ferry service is expected to start once the town's new dock is completed, probably sometime in May.

The ferry Tustumena will stop two Mondays a month as it travels from Kodiak to Port Lions.

It made me happy to see that, since this will make it a lot easier for me to get things to Spruce Island, which is where I'm planning to be for the Summers a few years from now. I go there for a week or so in the Summer now, but in four years I'm planning to become a resident. Prior to the possibility of Ouzinkie getting ferry service, I was thinking I'd have to leave my vehicles on Kodiak; with the advent of the announcement above, things became a bit less complicated.

Not all progress is a bad thing...
