Zine scene: Pebble and Palin

The June issue of Outside magazine has a big feature on how some people perceive the proposed Pebble copper and gold mine as a potential threat to salmon-rich Bristol Bay.

"Get ready for the fiercest wilderness rumble since ANWR," a headline declares.

Sorry, I don't have a link to the article for you.

Elsewhere, The New Yorker has an article titled "Fish Out of Water" about a recent Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute event in the Big Apple.

Gov. Sarah Palin was supposed to attend but had to divert, sending husband Todd instead.

Todd, a Bristol Bay setnetter, was "the biggest fish in the room," the article says.

The article quotes, among other Alaskans, ASMI board member Kevin Adams and Kodiak seiner Bruce Schactler.
