The Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation is cautioning local residents about a scam they’ve been informed about. YKHC’s Compliance Administrator and Privacy Officer Shailee Nelson says the health corporation has received reports about suspicious calls.
Bethel resident, and KYUK Talk Line host, Diane McEachern was in the audience when President Barrack Obama delivered a speech in Kotzebue as part of his Alaskan tour.
McEachern says the people of Kotzebue gave him a warm welcome, but some attendees questioned his decisions on oil-drilling in Alaska- which contradicts his reasons for touring Alaska.
Listen to McEachern’s statements here:
The future of alcohol sales in Bethel takes center stage in this episode of Talk Line with some callers upset the Bethel City Council is considering a move to put local option on the ballot this fall, while others are concerned commercial alcohol sales could have devastating impacts without the control provided by local option.
The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board will host a community meeting in Bethel Monday, August 6, about proposed alcohol sales. KYUK 640 AM and kyuk.org will air the event live starting at 5:30 P.M.
Director Cynthia Franklin will present on how the license process works, what laws the board follows, and how it takes community input. No board members will be present.
