Potential Elim Rock Quarry Under Discussion

An informational meeting about an Elim rock quarry project took place on Thursday, followed by a tri-party meeting with the Elim city council, tribal council, and the Elim Native Corporation. The fate of the quarry is uncertain, and further meetings will be determined.

"Humpys" like these were seen in record numbers last week in the Shaktoolik and Unalakleet rivers.

Record Numbers of Pinks in Norton Sound
