A dear friend and someone I admired greatly passed on Dec. 9th, 2019; his name was Phillip Morgan, aka "Clean Phil." In January of 2017, I had the honor to interview Phil and share his amazing life full of adversity, sorrow, joy and success. As we pass through the holiday season meant for sharing, caring and giving, please take a moment to hear Phil's story and how he learned to make lemonade from the lemons in life. ~ Kris Halterman

Washington State has a reputation for being a stronghold of regressive ideology and policies that better represent socialism than the origins of the Democrat Party most of us grew-up with. Is Washington doomed to forever be a Progressive (regressive) tax and regulatory haven? Or, is there a hope to restore personal liberty and freedom to the state? Is there hope to bring business friendly leadership to the state? Is there hope that Washington State has a future beyond bigger government, higher taxes, unaffordable housing, out of control homelessness due to drug and mental health issues, traffic congestion, and public schools that refuse to be held accountable to teach not indoctrinate our children?
