Sam Ketchum is working at the Crazy Mike's Video on Lincoln Street Port Angeles corner Sixth Street. He expects to attend TESC The Evergreen State College, Olympia, Washington in 2001. He is working on wall illustrations of the planets at Port Angeles High School. He is friendly with Sean Root, now in computer technical school in Phoenix Arizona.
