The fight for King Cove : Where do we go from here?


by Whitney LB Miller

ANCHORAGE - King Cove tribal and community leaders continue to express their outrage over the silence from U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.

This - ever since Christmas - when she rejected a land exchange that would allow for a small gravel road to be built, connecting King Cove to Cold Bay.

A road many say is now a matter of life and death.

In this piece, we conclude our series "The Fight for King Cove" as we find out what's next for this small fishing community.

Your Alaska Link's Whitney Miller sat down with Senator Lisa Murkowski who continues to put pressure on not only Sally Jewell but now the President.

Take a look; and join the conversation.

Hi Bob! Thanks for watching!! The State is behind the road… its the Federal Government that is not behind the road!.

The community needs to make the road about MONEY not about HEALTH. By locating a mine about oh say, HALF way from Cold Bay to King Cove, then the STATE will get behind building a road. It will be built when it is about money....
