What's on your mind ahead of the visit, and what will be the message Mr. Obama hears Wednesday during his brief stop in Bristol Bay?
(A schedule of Wednesday's events is posted here.)
Last week KDLG spoke with many of you to see what's on your mind ahead of Wednesday's visit. Some told us you were excited and proud to have the President in Dillingham, while quite a few have grumbled about the hassle of the trip during the fall hunting season. A few have a laundry list of issues they want the President to do something about, and others say they just want the chance to shake hands with Mr. Obama.
The White House has said the purpose of the trip around Alaska is to call attention to climate change, and it appears likely the President will deliver remarks from Kanakanak Beach, which has been eroding for decades.
What do local leaders hope he'll hear about or speak to during his three hours on the ground: Pebble, oil and gas in Bristol Bay, the fishery, climate change, economic security, Native issues?
Below are three pieces from the August 28 Bristol Bay and Beyond.
