This episode originally aired on 11/30/22

Back in early October, Homer area schools were under what was deemed a “soft lockdown” following the threat of a school shooting on TikTok, according to the Homer Police Department. On this week's Coffee Table, KBBI's Hope McKenney talks school safety with Police Chief Mark Robl and Lt. Ryan Browning from the Homer Police Department, as well as Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Superintendent Clayton Holland and Homer High Principal Doug Waclawski.

In 2019, Hope moved to Unalaska/Dutch Harbor to work for Alaska's Energy Desk and KUCB — the westernmost public radio newsroom in the country. She has lived, worked and filed stories from California, New York, Bolivia, Peru, Cuba and Alaska.
