It doesn’t snow too often in Ketchikan, but when an 8-inch snowfall greeted residents one Sunday morning in February, a local correctional officer saw an opportunity to help and took action, according to a report appearing in the February 26th edition of the Ketchikan Daily News. CO Brian Calvin fired up his four-wheeler and spent part of a Sunday morning clearing walkways, common areas and the parking lot of a residential apartment complex. Homeowners Association members joined in with shovels and cleared areas where the four-wheeler couldn’t reach. “It is this kind of generosity and thoughtfulness that shows who our local heroes are,” wrote resident Rachel Ross.
