Nature Now #401

#130 Gary Lane, American Legion Service Officer

(First airdate: February 26, 2019) READY TO HELP VETS IN NEED. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Gary Lane, the Service Officer for American Legion Post #26. Vietnam vet Gary was exposed to Agent Orange during the war. It took him quite a while to realize and accept the fact that he needed help getting the benefits due to him. He ultimately decided to put his expertise to good use. As Service Officer he has helped hundreds of veterans from all branches and all wars get the benefits and pensions due to them. Over the past seven years he’s learned how to maneuver through the endless paperwork and bureaucratic red tape. If you have a friend or family member that's a vet, this show should give you some valuable insight into how to help your vet.

From a teepee on the windy plains of Alberta, Canada, two Piikani tribal elders of the Blackfoot Confederacy speak of First Nation sovereignty, Treaty rights, and the importance of handing sacred traditions and stories down to the younger generations.

On a Roll to KPTZ 2.0!

Now that word is out about the campaign to Build a New Home for KPTZ, fundraising efforts continue! We’re on track to bring home the seeds planted during last Thursday's Love Is Alive 1-Day event to help reach our ambitious KPTZ 2.0 Goal.

So far, jumpstarted by supportive listeners and members of our KPTZ family, last week’s flash drive has brought in over $21,000, including a Leadership Circle donation. Tripled by the Sage Foundation match, this comes to a whopping $63,000! Heartfelt Thanks to all KPTZ Love Is Alive donors!

It’s inspiring to see such enthusiasm for KPTZ’s plans to move into Fort Worden's Makers Square project for programs in arts, culture and education. With your help, we can realize our collective dream for KPTZ and our wonderful community, in the timetable required to spearhead this construction project.
