Unintended Consequences of Hanford Clean-up Nightmare - October 30, 2019

After a summer of 2019 visit to the Hanford Nuclear Site by Bud Anderson and his wife, along with Julia Hurd and Kathleen Flanagan from Skagit County, Bud Anderson recently presented information learned on their tour and further research by Bud, a retired Shell Refinery electrical engineer. These people are part of No More Bombs in Skagit. Bud does not dramatize the information, but it will keep you interested to know that little, if anything, has been cleaned up there ALL these years after Hanford was used during WWII to construct nuclear bombs like the one dropped on Hiroshima. The Hanford site is located close to the Columbia River in Washington State. Tracy Powell is the founder of No More Bombs in Skagit. He was born on July 27, 1945 in Roswell, New Mexico, a week after the first detonation of a nuclear weapon and less than 200 miles away from the site.

David Cunningham talks about Elections issues and changes - October 23, 2019

Join us for Speak Up! Speak out! this week as jim talks with Skagit County Election Supervisor, David Cunningham, about issues from the August primary: many ballots mailed AFTER the post office closed, signatures and addresses didn't match what is on file, and people did NOT have a phone number on record, so the office could verify their info. About 400 ballots could not be counted!

David has taken on other responsibilities in the Auditor's office, but right now this is his concentration.

Family Promise Helps Homeless Families - September 11, 2019

Born of chagrin over the high numbers of homeless children in Skagit County, a small group of volunteers started a local chapter of a national organization called Family Promise, whose aim is to find sustainable housing for homeless families with children. Now, almost 10 years later, with the help of an ecumenical group of churches and hundreds of volunteers, they are doing what they set out to do. This interview with Family Promise volunteers Peggy Bridgman and Shirley Scott, hosted by Ginny Wolff, tells their story, and invites people to their largest fund raiser of the year, "Homeless for a Night" on Sept. 21.
