Salmonfest Alaska

The annual Salmonfest in Ninilchik, just over a week away, promises to be the biggest ever, with a fourth stage added to entertain concert-goers during the three-days of "Fish, Love and Music." Now, for the first time, one of Homer's most nationally successful musicians will be performing.

It's been a little over 20 years since Homer's Jewel Kilcher burst on the national music scene, and though she's toured worldwide, her performances in Alaska have been few and far between. But according to Salmonfest President and Producer Jim Stearns, that will change this year.

This week, Shaylon Cochran sits down with Rep. Gary Knopp (R-Soldotna) to talk about ongoing state budget issues, the economic future of the state and how things could work more smoothly in Juneau.
