Natural Gas; Pebble Mine; and Poultry Farms

This week on Alaska Edition, host Michael Carey is joined in the studio by Tim Bradner, of the Alaska Journal of Commerce, Dermot Cole, of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, and Jill Burke, of the Alaska Dispatch to discuss the top news of the week. Some of the stories they will talk about this week include: the Senate Resources Committee hears voluminous testimony on natural gas and potential gas lines; a former Lisa Murkowski aide Arne Fuglvog remains in the spotlight; new trials for former representative Vic Kohring and former representative Pete Kott will proceed; proponents of an initiative on the Pebble Mine have gone to court and won a big victory; there have been any number of serious plane crashes this summer across Alaska; who is Sam Pandolfo – and why does he matter?; Alaska grown may apply to many products – but not to poultry.
