KDLG:  The city of Dillingham has hired a new DMV clerk, and a new public works director.A cool, rainy weekend has helped tamper the state’s first wild land fire of the season. State Division of Forestry spokesperson Tim Mowry says the size of the Medfra fire northeast of McGrath is holding at about 9,600 acres.“There’s still a few hot spots in the hills and some black spruce on the northern edge of the fire. We’re taking some resources off that fire and they’re thinking they’ve got four to six more days of work before they put that fire to bed.”School may be out for summer, but Bristol Bay libraries are trying to get local youth to keep cracking the books anyway. Preliminary report to LBC recommends western Bristol Bay instead form long-discussed borough and share revenues from taxes on salmon, herring, and tourism.

Efforts to launch local processors in two Bristol Bay communities may finally be coming to fruition.

Rod Rau has been principal at the school for eleven years; teacher Sueal Cunningham will take over in the fall.
