There used to be hundreds of seafood canneries all along Alaska’s coastline. Two people are involved in documenting and preserving some of that rich history in order to share it with others. KFSK’s Angela Denning reports from Petersburg:
A recently completed runway extension at the Kodiak Airport originally prompted environmental concerns among local groups and a tribal organization, but some members of the community now say they’re satisfied with the compromise that was reached.
Petersburg Borough Assembly has asked the federal agency to help it conduct a feasibility study to dredge the south harbor, where many of the larger boats have been going aground due to the rising basin. Assembly members have approved $325,000 for the dredging study.
