Unalaskans can now file to run for local office; the Board of Fisheries has declared an emergency over the failed sockeye run in Chignik; and the Trump administration has reopened a decades-long fight over whether tribes in Alaska can create sovereign areas known as Indian Country.
Unalaska's Lisa Tran has been named salutatorian of the 2018 Rural Alaska Honors Institute; conservation groups say the Interior Department has gone behind the public's back to conduct a land survey in the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge; and the Trump administration is trying to make it easier for developers to navigate the Endangered Species Act.
