Bristol Bay and Beyond, November 11, 2016:  This week, Speaker of the House Bryce Edgmon joins to talk about his promotion and the politics ahead this session. "My role down in Juneau is going to change, but at the same time I'm not going to lose sight that I'm sent down there to represent my constituents. I'm going to be very busy, but I'm up to the task, and I'm looking forward to it," he says. We'll listen back to what some of you said on polling day, and get reaction from one area leader about what a President Trump might mean for Bristol Bay. "Any time we have an election, we have an opportunity. No matter which party wins. I was disappointed, but you know what, we roll up our sleeves and we start working," says Kimberly Williams, executive director of Nunamta Aulukestai. Dan O'Hara reflects on 23 years on the Regional Advisory Council, and we drop by the Veteran's Day assembly. "It allows the veterans to get together, and say hello, and renew old acquaintances. And it gives the general public a chance to recognize them and honor them," Joanne Nelson told us before the annual event got underway. Those stories and more, after a look back at some of the week's news. 

Believe it or not, these solar panels are providing a fair amount of power in Naknek. They were recently installed, sold to NEA, and producing electricity despite the short cloudy fall days.
