Draining the swamp of corruption in San Juan County. Host Kris Halterman interviews Ed Kilduff and Nick Powers on the lawsuit against San Juan County government for failing to follow the law; to benefit themselves and their friends.

Part 1: Was Whatcom County prepared for the coronavirus pandemic? Councilmember Tyler Byrd shares what he knows and how the County has handled this outbreak. And, what needs to change for public safety to be the first, priority of government?

Part 2: There has been a lot of information given about how best to protect yourself and your loved ones from the coronavirus, on the web, on TV, and many media resources. You've heard that zinc has great properties to help boost and protect the human immune system. Popular guest on Saturday Morning Live, EJ Ledet will share his research on this topic, so you can better understand how our bodies assimilate and properly use the vitamins and minerals within our food sources and through daily supplements.

Guest Host, Vince Buys will be doing a two-part interview with two important candidates for this upcoming General Election.

Part 2: Interview with (Chief) Loren Culp who is running as a candidate for Washington's Governor.

What does an “affordable“ Bellingham look like? With the recent election results and the recommendations of Bellingham’s “Climate Action Task Force,” soon to be taken up by the City of Bellingham (and likely Whatcom County, too) it is really important that local stakeholders pay attention to what’s happening and what’s contributing to the increased “lack of affordable housing/shelter,” in our community.

You may ask yourself, “Why is the Bellingham City Council pushing the Climate Action Task Force agenda on its residents?” The reality is that what is happening in Bellingham/Whatcom County is a compilation of the Delphi Method and the Overton Window.

 

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. 

Guest Host Vincent Buys will be interviewing two Washington State, statewide candidates on today's show.

Today's show was pre-recorded prior to Tim Eyman's announcement to run for the office of governor for Washington State.


The November General Election is over. The people voted to restore $30 Car Tabs. King County and the Mayor of Seattle are mad as H-E-double hockey sticks. What next? Tim Eyman and Glen Morgan talk about the voter approved upset for $30 Car Tabs and other amazing stories of how "We the People," can be the change we want and need when we show up.

Part 1) Host Kris Halterman interviews Max Nelson, of the Freedom Foundation, on Washington State's Department of Health's failure to revise the stats on their COVID-19 death reports after promising to do so when, the Freedom Foundation's research showed that the death statistics were inflated.

Host Kris Halterman will discuss the 2019 Election Results with Vincet Buys and Charlie Crabtree.


Why did you vote to lower the car tab taxes?
1) You don't like car tab taxes, but you are OK with other kinds of taxes?
2) You don't like it when agencies pull shenanigans with how the determine car values?
3) You think our car tab taxes have been spent unwisely.
4) Of all the increases in taxes this year, this was the only one you could cut.

WOW!!! The tin ear of our elected officials is really something to behold.

It really takes a lot to get through to the Democrats who are running our state. They really do not believe that we have been taxed too much, that there is a limit to the taxes we will pay without concrete results. That we have had enough of taxes that only fund more red tape for the rest of us. It is not just the Car tabs, take a look at the advisory votes on the tax increases from the past Democratic controlled legislature. There is no confidence out here that we will get what we are paying for.
