Compass for the Week of January 9, 2016

(First airdate: January 9, 2016) In a repetition of history that has nightmare qualities for many residents of Whidbey Island, the U.S. Navy is once again proposing to vastly increase its Field Carrier Landing Practice operations, along with the number of the noisy Growler aircraft at Ault Field and the Outlying Landing Field in Coupeville.  Because of its uncanny relevance today, this week on the Compass we reprise a show originally produced three years ago, about a Port Townsend community meeting protesting the Navy’s plans at the time of the last proposed expansion.
