The public weighs in on hoverbarge issue

More than 200 people filled Centennial Hall’s Sheffield #3 ballroom last night for a public meeting on the possibility of hover-barges carrying minerals from the Tulsequah Chief Mine down the Taku River. Centennial Hall’s other rooms were booked by the Canadian owners of the mine. But the main action was in the standing-room-only information session hosted by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources.
