Letters to the Editor, AND, July 9, 2020

With so much going on in the news today, we often forget the people who have served Anchorage for many years. This year is the 25th anniversary of the Nunaka Valley Community Patrol. This group of volunteers have made our neighborhood a safer place by patrolling over all these years.

They have gone above and beyond and have gotten to know the new neighbors and make them feel welcome and safe in their homes. This is exactly what a group of volunteer dedicated individuals hope to achieve. I for one want to thank and recognize these men and women who make Anchorage and Nunaka Valley a wonderful place to live. Thank you!

Community volunteer patrol - thank you!
Michael Cooper, Bayshore/Klatt

Just a shout out to our community patrol volunteers, thank you for your work!

Light sleeper, I work to a car stopping out front with engine running in front of the neighbor's house around 3am this morning and within a minute a truck with the community patrol sticker on the side came rolling up, checked the car out, circled around the street a bit until the car left.

Could have been a legit visit for some reason to the neighbor, but with another theft from a car in the driveway on our street earlier this week, appreciate the work you volunteers are doing to help keep us safe!

Thank you for a great 2019 Dog Jog!!!
Heather Rafalko, Friends of Pets

Thank you so much for volunteering at this year's Dog Jog! It was great to share the 25th Anniversary of this event with you. I am so thankful we have amazing volunteers, even with the rainy weather, all of you showed up with smiles and excitement. This event is always a huge undertaking, but with your commitment and time, this year’s Dog Jog was a success.

Thank you

Good morning. I wanted to take the time to comment on our area’s community patrol and your Council’s active participation. Thank you for your advocating for our area.

I live in the area of Petersburgh and E. 74th. The dead end of E. 73rd Avenue has a prevalence of abandoned or stolen vehicles being ditched there and questionable activity in parked vehicles. I have no clue how many times I have reported abandoned or suspected stolen vehicles to APD over the years. I have lived in the area since 2005. In addition, it seems to be a popular place to dump old tires and such. We pick up what we can to keep the area clear of trash.

Recently I have seen APD patrolling the area, in addition to the Community Service Patrol driving down the dead end street. I have noticed a reduction in vehicles being abandoned there and less people parked in their cars doing God knows what in them. Believe me, I have witnessed people engaging in sex acts and doing drugs at this dead end. We use the area to walk our dog. I don’t feel as apprehensive or fearful of my safety now that I have seen more community patrol. I appreciate the Council’s efforts in keeping our area safe. Keep up the good work.

2019 Polar Plunge
Emily Tymick, Director of Sports Development and Competition

All of our staff agreed that the 2018 Polar Plunge was the best year for parking yet. It was so great working with you all and everyone (ACCP, Search Team, Police Citizen’s Academy Alumni) worked together very well to pull the event off. Kevin Eldridge with ACCP was an amazing help and kept in close communication leading up to the event, keeping me informed of who would be there to help out day of. It also helped that he was a member of the Search Team and the Citizen’s Academy Alumni, so he was able to stay in close communication and coordinate with those groups as well. Also, I believe it was Dave who put together the map of strategic points with who was assigned to each. This was a very helpful tool to have. I understand this was done in year’s past as well, but I’m not sure SO-Staff ever got a copy before.

In the past we’ve had law enforcement work as the POC between us and the groups overseeing the parking lot and traffic. This was the first year our staff served as the direct POC for the groups. By having one of our staff work directly with you all it helped us make sure we had a solid plan for the schedule for the day and the number of personnel we would have working the event. I hope ACCP felt the communication leading up to and during the event was a little better this year, too.

I assume our systems and communication will continue to get stronger as we move forward. We are very grateful to have the support of ACCP we look forward to working with you in the future.

Jeep Ditch Diving
Karen Decker-Brown, Anchorage, AK

I want to thank the two gentlemen that helped my son get my Jeep out of the ditch. I ended up there, intersection of Shore and Woo on Monday, January 7th. My goal was to arrive at my dentisr’s office for an appt. but my Jeep had other ideas. Bad Jeep! I guess it did not like the idea of me driving on slippery roads, while reaching for my phone to answer a call from my dentists office, and being inattentive to road conditions. So, it decided to teach me a lesson and instead of turning left it went straight for low ground and buried its front end in the snow. Two gallant men wearing their colors (Community Patrol on the neon yellow-green vests) came to our rescue to give my Bleep Jeep the last back and forth motion and leverage to finally force it back on the road. No small effort on the part of my son, Chalon, so a big thanks to him as well.

Anyway, everybody likes to complain but less in number are the thank you’s and recognition of good deeds, so thank you to those kind gentlemen. We were glad you came upon us in your rounds.

Thank you
Roger Stickney, Anchorage, AK
