Bristol Bay and Beyond, November 11:  Coming up this week, an update from the police department on the N&N arson and burglary. "Attempting to burn down the store was just malicious and mean. Now I don't know if you've heard or not, but there's names out there that people know did it. But once again, knowing and proving something, are two different things." DPD's Chief Dan Pasquariello tells us about that case, and his suspicion that meth is overtaking heroin as the drug of choice in Dillingham. Fresh greens are on the shelves of an area grocery, courtesy of a local hydroponic farm that is up and running. "He picked it the same day that he brings it. And you can taste the difference compared to what we were getting before," a produce manager says.  The Bristol Bay red king crab season is just about to wrap up, and we’ll ask one captain how this year’s fishery went. "Our quota was down about 15 percent but the price will likely make up that gap," Capt. Tom Suryan of the F/V Bristol Mariner tells us. Plus an update from the Unalaska mayor's race, and checking in with someone who was at that phenomenal World Series game 7 the other night, all after a look back at some of the week's news.
