Islander Olympian still inspires

I found your article about Nancy Ramey Lethcoe very inspiring. I, too, was befriended by Nancy and her late husband, Jim. I met her as a pen pal while in prison. She has worked for the benefit of other prisoners as a result of our unique friendship. As an aspiring candidate for a seat in the Alaskan government, I would say she is most qualified to hold that seat. Gov. Sarah Palin isn’t the only inspiring female candidate in the state.
