The Pribilof Islands in the Bering Sea are a magnet for scientists who come to study everything from fur seals to migratory birds. When they leave, that research often leaves with them.

But for the last nine years, the local tribe has found a way to bring it back home. Each fall, a group of scientists return — not to do research, but to share its findings with the students of Saint Paul and Saint George Islands.

For the first time this year, a former student is now a teacher.

As Election Day approaches, we’re checking in with voters around the state, asking what issues matter to them most — and who they’re supporting for president.

Yesterday we heard from Julie Tisdale, a Trump supporter in Anchorage.

Tonight we hear from Bill Briggs of St. Paul. Briggs is 60. He’s lived in St. Paul for 10 years, and manages the island’s seafood processing plant. And he is definitely not on the Trump train.


KUCB's annual One Day Radio Pledge Drive took place on Friday, Oct. 14, and it was a huge success. This year, our goal was $20,000, and we beat that number by a big margin. At the close of our drive, we raised a total of $26,000 — more money than any fundraiser in KUCB history.
