Continued from last week: What is happening with the shutdown of Intalco and Whatcom County? State Senator Doug Ericksen will join the first part of the program to discuss what is happening back in Olympia. Afterwards, Host Kris Halterman and Jim McKinney are joined by Brian Urban, Shop Steward for Intalco Aluminum, working in the Refractory as a brick mason. They will share what they know and plans for urging local, state, and federal agencies to help move the process forward for the benefit of the county, state, and nation.


HAPPY MOTHERS DAY -- from myself to everyone who contributes to, reads the articles posted to Liberty Road, and listens to this program.

Common Threads NW and The Fourth Corner are co-sponsoring a candidate forum with the Republican candidates for Governor. The forum has been scheduled for June 18th, 2020 at the WC BIAW. The forum will run from 7 – 9 pm and will be aired lived on KGMI, TVW, YouTube and other media platforms (to be announced later). Mark your calendars because this is an important race for our state. Gov. Inslee has proven that he does not value “all” small businesses equally. The thousands of business owners and their staff need someone that represents them in Olympia and values their contribution to our state and local economies.
