What does it take to stick around in Alaska politics for three decades?

For 60 years, the oil and gas industry has been front and center in the Kenai Peninsula’s economy and politics.

Across the state and on the Kenai, Native languages are finding new life through new speakers.

On KDLL's special fall membership drive edition of Kenai Fresh Air, host Jay Barrett speaks with writer, editor and publisher Jackie Pels. She is responsible for a couple dozen books, mostly about pioneering Alaskans, including her mother, in "Unga Island Girl," the one-time "commodore of the fleet" of the Alaska  Marine Highway, Walter Jackinsky, in "Any Tonnage, Any Ocean," and the definitive history of the Jesse Lee Home in Seward, in "Family After All." She is also a member of the Kenai Territorial High School graduating class of 1953.
