Bristol Bay and Beyond, Dec. 9:  This week, we get reaction from Glen Alsworth Sr. on the tragic loss of four who were onboard a plane that went down in Lake Clark Wednesday. Plus, the moose bull-to-cow ratio in GMU 17C isn't quite what biologists would like to see; Fish and Game's Neil Barten joins to discuss. If you do bring a moose in this season, Susie Jenkins-Brito offers a wonderful recipe for moose heart migas as she introduces a new KDLG program:  "Set-The-Net: Recipes Inspired By Life in Bristol Bay." We drop by Tide Table Coffee, Dillingham's newest small business, to see how things are going. And has it been a while since you've run that snow go? Jay Hoover from Dillingham's MotorPlex has tips. Those stories and more, plus a look back at some of the week's news.
