I just found out that your prosecuting attorney believes that he has the right to serve warrants to Facebook to obtain information on anyone who was invited to an event in absolute violation of the co...nstitutional right to freedom of association. I am politically concerned, but my political activism is limited to voting and the occasional note such as this one objecting to clear violations of the constitution. Nor do I find assurances that a "privilege team" will review the list comforting. I trust governmental bodies about as far as I can throw them, regardless of what fancy-sounding monikers they are given. Your prosecuting attorney should do his job and target actual criminals, and not try to create McCarthey-esque lists of anyone who is or every has been associated with political action that he doesn't like.

From the Superior Court, the Municipal court, to the Bellingham Police Dept,
This County is a failure.
My abducted child lives in Bellingham and I can find no advocacy....
The family that has abducted him has a standing threat on my life, has filed false documents against my son and I in three states, and has now recruited Officer April Michelson to perpetuate the abuse of my son by violating my civil rights and illegally harassing me.
I have been allowed no avenue of grievance and a saddened that an Officer of the law can be complicit in the abuse of my child and use the badge to perpetuate the violent agenda of those who have harmed us.
Shame on you, Whatcom County.

Keeping Shellfish Beds Open Requires On-going Effort—
We have been celebrating the reopening of 129 acres of shellfish beds for harvest in central Birch Bay due... to improved water quality in Terrell Creek. Keeping fecal coliform bacteria and other pollutants out of our waterways requires everybody in the community helping however they can—by picking up pet waste, inspecting and maintaining septic systems, managing pastures and manure, using marine pump out stations, or keeping food away from wildlife. Continued community participation in these and other pollution prevention actions is needed to ensure clean water to keep local waterways safe and shellfish beds open.
Learn more about what you can do and check up to date water quality morning data in your area by visiting the Whatcom County Public Works Water Quality Program website ( or explore the Washington State Department of Agriculture’s
“A Story of Water Quality in Northwest Washington”

Taking Care of Septic Systems – Landowners in the Terrell Creek and Birch Bay watershed are joining others throughout Whatcom County to regularly inspect and ma...intain their septic systems (also called on-site-sewage systems or OSS). Regular inspection and maintenance identifies problems early before they become expensive fixes and ensures that harmful bacteria and viruses don’t enter waterways from failing systems. Watch this short video from Whatcom County Public Works ( and visit the Whatcom County Health Department’s website (…/Operation-and-Maint…) to learn more.
We are celebrating improved water quality in Terrell Creek and the reopening of shellfish beds at the mouth of the creek in Birch Bay.
For more information read the press release (…/…/32365).

Thank you, landowners, for inspecting and maintaining your septic system to keep our waterways clean.

Hertz Trail Closure
A minor landslide occurred at Lake Whatcom Park over the past weekend and is affecting use of the Hertz Trail. The Hertz Trail is closed to all users near the 0.5 mile trail marker. Crews are assessing the damage and will begin cleaning up the debris in coming days. For your safety, do not attempt to cross the slide debris.
For more information on this closure, contact the Whatcom County Parks & Recreation office, 360.778.5850.

A good refresher on traffic rules....

Unlike a solid yellow light, which warns that a red light is coming, the flashing yellow reminds drivers to be careful going through an intersection.

Such good work for our community -- an outstanding example of community support.

The Whatcom Dream, an amazing organization, was the recipient of The Chrysalis Inn & Spa’s January spa donation in the amount of $2,100.

Congratulations Liam! Well done!
