This week, an update on a deal between EPA and Pebble. Graduating seniors share thoughts through poetry and prose, we profile a local entrepreneur, and a young man shares his story of addiction and recovery.
Bristol Bay and Beyond, May 12: This week, we invite Pebble CEO Tom Collier back on the program to discuss the deal just struck with EPA. "What we were after in this settlement was a return to normalized permitting," he says. They got it, and now must put a plan on the table within 30 months. On Thursday, Pebble opponents, now no longer fans of EPA, held a rally and press conference in Dillingham. "It is a day of disappointment, but we'll continue to stand united," said Gayla Hoseth. We’ll visit with a budding area entrepreneur who just left a cushy state job to open a new gym in town. "My main goal is to educate people and to teach people how to take care of their bodies," says Ian Fo. Some graduating seniors share thoughts on their futures using poetry and prose, and a young Dillingham man sits down to share about an addiction that nearly cost him his life, and his new road to recovery. "It's like I'm taking the first necessary steps on a journey that I've chosen to take, and I can kinda see where it can lead to," says JJ Larson. Those stories, plus a look back at some of the week's news.
