Gov. Inslee extended the “Stay Home Order” through May 31st. He spoke of a 4-phase opening with 3-weeks for each phase. That equates to 12 weeks or the end of August 2020 for a full opening – which, according to Inslee, will still require social distancing until there is a vaccine for CV19.

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?

SHOW OUTLINE 

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:

Dec. 3rd, 2019: Whatcom County Council Regular Meeting

On the agenda will be the 2nd public comment on their expected approval of an 8th vote to reinstate the “emergency moratorium on Cherry Point Industries.”

New organization “Whatcom Coalition for Economic Growth” The purpose of this organization is to support and defend the industries at Cherry Point which provide a valuable economic resource to thousands of Whatcom County families and businesses. To stay informed and get involved please sign up for their email notices. They will soon have more social media resources that feature the many ways we all benefit from these industries.

The City of Bellingham is hiring a Climate and Energy Manager for an annual salary of $80k - $95k. If the City of Bellingham  is not “all-in” on the Climate Action Task Force’s recommendations to go 100% fossil fuel free in 10 – 15 years, and the candidates running for the council and mayoral races said so—then what’s the rush to create this brand new FTE. The COB has a lot of needed capital expenses to fund. Is it wise for them to grow the budget and the bureaucracy with a new city department at this time?
