Joel Gunnlaugsson captains the Arni J Richter, one of the Ferry Line’s two ice breakers. Gunnlaugsson, who was born and raised on the island, says he has constant worry about the sustainability of the community where he still lives with his own family, including four kids. After high school he left the island, went to college, and landed an internship at a Green Bay company that did electrical technology for paper-making. When the economy took a downturn, he was laid off. He already had a captain’s license from working the ferry before, so he went back to what he knew. But with fiber internet service available on the island, Gunnlaugsson said the future is bright.
