Barrow's 'Next 40 Years' began over the weekend

Over the weekend, a forum looking at oil and gas development for the next 40 years wrapped up in Barrow. North Slope Borough mayor Edward Itta says the turn out was excellent, with representation from industry, state and federal government, environmental organizations and local residents. Itta says one of the highlights of the gathering was the discussion between Shell Offshore and forum participants about development in the Beaufort sea.
