Nulato opens city liquor store; expects to both create and solve problems

City governments across Alaska are struggling. But a handful get a financial boost from the sale of what many consider to be the cause of Alaska’s most serious social problems: alcohol. The Yukon River village of Nulato is the latest community to open a city liquor store. Further up the river, municipal governments in Tanana and Fort Yukon have operated liquor stores since the early 1980s.
