Tune in this Monday at 7:00 p.m. for Mind Over Matter with Elaine Schroeder. Her guest is Dr. Emily Kane, and the topic will be management of chronic pain.

- Opponents of the Pebble Mine are doing all they can to get Sen. Lisa Murkowski on their side. But Murkowski is not ready to make a declaration about the mine, for or against.
