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.
