The Benefits Of Women's Leadership - February 15, 2017

It's been over 100 years since the first woman was elected to Congress. Since then, the rise of women into positions of political and corporate power has been slow-going to say the least.

Jay Newton-Small is TIME Magazine's Washington D.C. correspondent and the author of "Broad Influence: How Women Are Changing the Way America Works." She had to dig, and hire a team of researchers, but the data she discovered reveals how a critical mass of women in public and private leadership positions clearly benefits both realms.

Newton-Small spoke at Town Hall Seattle last June.

IS LOGGING THE FUTURE OF BLANCHARD FOREST'S CORE? - January 18, 2017

After decades of effort and following a hard won, successful agreement, will this precious forest become a permanent reserve and recreation area or will it be logged? 2017 is the crucial year. Julia Hurd talks with Skagit County Commissioner Lisa Janicki, Skagit Land Trust Executive Director, Molly Doran, and Conservation Northwest Executive Director, Mitch Freedman, who describe the forest's significance, historical efforts to preserve it, conservation and funding issues, and what citizens can do now.

"It would be a shame to see 10 years of successful partnership end due to a simple lack of funding from the Legislature." - Lisa Janicki
