In a painful and ironic twist of fate, Marcus Henthorne, a member of Port Townsend’s Non-motorized Vehicle Advisory Board and a prominent Port Townsend advocate for bicycle safety, died of injuries sustained in a collision with an automobile while riding his beloved bicycle down 19th Street in Port Townsend a couple of weeks ago. This week on the Compass we reprise a special memorial program produced by Tossed Salad host Phil Andrus remembering Henthorne.
Host Phil Andrus welcomed 18 talented students, beginning with fiction from Elly Dam and literary opinions by Ava Cecil, Tilly Norton, and Kai Ryan.
They were followed by music from six 4th graders who sang songs from The Drum, a musical directed by Kim Clarke.
Finally the seven pictured 5th graders rounded out the segment with a presentation on Ocean Acidification.

(First airdate: April 10, 2018) TICK, TOCK: IT’S FATHER TIME. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Bob Farr, the guy behind Father Time Clock Repair. Super-mechanic Bob worked his way from cars to jet planes and finally to grandfather & cuckoo clocks. Every clock has a story, he says, if only they could talk about the generations they have watched. One peninsula clock dates back to 1741. That family has the multigenerational story memorized. Some clocks he worked on came from the great sailing vessels, some are more modest family mantle clocks. But all are lovingly restored.
