PETERSBURG-AK Some of Wrangell’s assembly members are expressing hope that their community and Petersburg can work together on a proposed hydroelectric plant near Petersburg.
The Ruth lake proposal is one of several recent power issues that have caused a political rift between the two close neighbors.

But as Matt Lichtenstien reports, Wrangell’s Borough Assembly may reconsider.
