Today's program covers the gamut of community safety by looking at how the enforcement of law needs to be administered to be effective 'and' the safety of living in rural areas when our public lands are managed to keep them healthy and available as a valued, renewable resource.

Part 1: Host Ashley Butenschoen interviews Whatcom County Health Department Director, Erika Lautenbach, about the Health Departments role in testing and reporting on COVID-19.

Lorraine Newman and Don Goldberg discuss business and economics in Whatcom County.

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?

Host Kris Halterman interviews Philip Stockton, WSRP Regional Field Director and head of the Trump Victory movement for Whatcom County.

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.

LIBERTY ALERTS:

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.

COMMON CENTS:

DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW

SUMMARY:

Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

Guest Host Vince Buys will interview Perry Eskridge, General Affairs Atty, for the WC Realtors about the recent edict from the Department of Ecology on the first part of the show. Vince and Perry will talk about the Dept. of Ecology's move to side with the extremists and reduce the available water for domestic use from 3000 gallons per day to 500 gallons per day. These properties in rural Whatcom County often have small farms and growing operations on them, so it'll be an interesting interview to say the least. The second half of the program, Vince will speak to State Representative Luanne Van Werven, of the 42nd Dist. about recent issues happening in Washington State without the consent of the state legislature.

nolan comicPart One: Calling all comic book fans of the 1940's thru the 1970's--local author Michelle Nolan has published an illustrated and historical book on the stories we all grew up loving, "Archie's Rivals in Teen Comics." Michelle will be interviewed tomorrow morning on Saturday Morning Live to talk about her book and how these comics influenced her life and the lives of many teens.

Part Two: The "Cancel Culture" is alive and well in Washington State politics as our state continues to lock down and shut out the kids from "in-person" educators during the Days-of-Covid. David Spring, M.Ed., and candidate for the office of OSPI was recently asked to participate in an interview for the office of OSPI with Chris Rykedal, the incumbent. How do you get your message out in today's political realm of, "I don't want to hear what you have to say?"
