Celebrity edition: Obama's in Bristol Bay, Bear-ack Obearma draws crowds at Squaw Creek, and former NFL players, too. Plus, preserving tips for fall harvest ...
Coming up on the "celebrity edition" of Bristol Bay and Beyond, we’ll sit down to speak with President Barack Obama (nope, kidding; the President took no questions from Alaska media this week!) Nevertheless he made quite an impact during his three hours in Dillingham Wednesday, and we'll get reaction from two commercial fishermen.
What about that other famous mammal drawing crowds this week? The young brown bear, now affectionately known as Bear-ack O-bear-ma, became a fan favorite at the makeshift zoo at the Airport Y (with signs and plenty of media attention, too). We hear he's still alive, and we'll ask wildlife authorities if they plan to leave him that way.
Plus a handful of former NFL players were in Bristol Bay last week; their visit was slightly overshadowed by the President, but they made a unique impact with the kids, too. Those stories, plus tips for preserving your garden harvest for the winter with Patricia Carscallen, coming up after a look back at the week's news.
