This week on the Compass, local activists rise to meet the threat of a seven-fold increase in oil tanker traffic on the Salish Sea; KPTZ reporter Jack Pokorny covers a Port Townsend protest of President Trump’s threats to the Dreamers Act; and then we revisit a program from late last year about the Ecumenical Helping Hands Organization, or ECHHO, which provides everything from wheelchairs to free chauffer services for the handicapped in Jefferson County.
KPTZ reporter Chris Bricker visits a prairie buffalo herd that’s been brought back from the brink of extinction and chats with Blackfeet Tribal Business Council Secretary Tyson Running Wolf in the second installment of his series of reports on the New Old Time Chautauqua’s working visit to the Native American Blackfoot Confederacy. Then KPTZ reporter Jack Pokorny takes us on board the Committee Boat for the Thunderbird World Series.
