What would we do without Jessica Cejnar? Her latest article (March 6) outlining the rather knotty history of funding attempts for our harbor repairs is outstanding.

Wouldn’t it be feasible to suggest for attorney Bob Black to consider the possibility of researching FEMA and DOD-Navy funding sources re: the repair and future emergency readiness of our harbor?

In fact, there’s a reason the Blackhawks train here. All you need is a map to see the strategic defense capabilities Crescent City offers our country in terms of China Sea and other Pacific threats. It’s in our national interest to maintain what only ostensibly seems this rural outpost of U.S. protection.
