(First airdate: September 26, 2017) LANCE BAILEY: THE CZAR OF BUILDING PERMITS. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Port Townsend Planning Director Lance Bailey. From the Howard Street expansion to Water Street construction to your neighbor’s renovation, he’s the man on the ground when it comes to building permits. And, as ever in Port Townsend, the real question is "to grow, or not to grow?" There are some very differing opinions out there on that one. Lance must listen and carefully weigh all options and all opinions.
We attend a fundraiser to support four Canadian First Nation Tribes in their legal defense against a planned oil pipeline they say infringes on their aboriginal title and rights, and then we hear about recent medical studies showing that our health may not depend so much on what we eat as when we eat it.
Over more than 45 years of cruising with her husband Larry, Lin Pardey has possibly logged more hours at sea than anyone else alive, and also probably done more to document those experiences in books, articles, and videotapes than any other. Pardey came all the way from her home in New Zealand to be at the 41st Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival, where we interviewed her live during the four-hour remote broadcast from the Festival of Phil Andrus’s Tossed Salad on Friday afternoon. This week on the Compass, we bring you a lightly edited version of that live interview.
* Tues Sept 12 @ 12:30
* Wed @ 5:30pm
* Thurs & Fri @ Noon.

This week on the Compass, we talk with KPTZ Board President and General Manager Robert Ambrose about his past and the future of the station under his direction, and then we talk with the saviors of what is almost undoubtedly the world’s oldest surviving luxury yacht, which was recently in Port Townsend for repairs.
