Changes at Cherry Point - Death by A Thousand Daggers?

Guest Host Vincent Buys has invited people who are members of "Whatcom Coalition" and work at Cherry Point Industries, whose lives will be greatly affected by the proposed changes to Cherry Point under strong consideration by the Whatcom County Council, if enacted.

Hosts Kris Halterman and Lorraine Newman interview the outgoing Whatcom County Assessor, Keith Willnauer. Keith has served Whatcom County for 8-terms as our County Assessor; for the past 32 years he has seen a lot of changes in the way our property taxes are assessed and distributed out to the taxpayers. The assessor has some concerns for the 2020 - 2022 tax periods due to the McCleary Fix and how the state will tax properties statewide and what that means to residential, commercial, and other property owners.

This program was prerecorded outside of the Cascade Radio studio recording facilities due to time constraints and availability of the guest and studio time. Please excuse the lesser audio quality and listen to the message from the W.C. Assessor. 

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

LIBERTY ALERTS:

Washington State Legislators are back in session – January 13th, 2020. Will they push for more tax increases? Will they push for a capital gains, aka income tax this session? There are many ways to stay informed about what’s happening in Olympia. The Washington Policy Center is one of the best organizations that reports on all concerning legislation being considered in Olympia, as well as the Freedom Foundation, the Fourth Corner, and of course Saturday Morning Live’s Facebook Page, Liberty Road.

Guest Host Vince Buys interviews John (Westy) Westerfield, General Manager of Yeager’s and Lorraine Newman, board member of SAVE, on the importance of teaching economic principles, the role of business, and the role students/kids have in shaping a vibrant economy. 

Kris Halterman and Hans Erchinger-Davis discuss what is happening at the Lighthouse Mission to address homelessness in Whatcom County.

David Spring, Program Director for SAVE joins me to talk about two important issues. Why you need to be concerned about the explosion of "ransomware" happening at our public institutions. And, will the State of Washington mandate that we give them access to our personal vehicles to send us a monthly bill for road taxes and why you should be concerned if they do?
