Nancy Gibson, who, in 1985, was one of the original founders of International Wolf Center located in Ely, MN. The center is a leading authority on world-wide wolf education advancing the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship with wildlands and the human role in their future.

Methanol Plant canceled in Tacoma. Does that mean we can all just relax and not worry about the petrochemical industry’s impact on th Northwest? What about the other proposed methanol plant in Kalama? Baakan oil in tankers through our cities and barges on the Columbia River? All of these issues will be addressed by our panel. Dorothy Walker of the Sierra Club has been involved with both Methanol plant proposals and other issues with the petrochemical industry’s impact on Washington State.. Redline Tacoma’s Jose Chavez and Save Our Water’s Donna Walters will join documentary film maker and friend of the show’s Melinda Raebyne to round out the discussion.
Bev Harris is an American writer, activist, and founder of Black Box Voting Inc., a national nonpartisan, nonprofit elections watchdog group. She helped popularize the term Black Box Voting, while authoring a book of that title. Prior to HBO’s award winning documentary HACKING DEMOCRACY that reveals a broken system riddled with secrecy, incompetent election officials, and electronic voting machines that can be programmed to steal election, her original investigative work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post TimeMagazine, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CBS, Fox News, and NBC, as well as by the Associated Press, NPR, and many others. Filmmakers Simon Ardizzone, Robert Cohen, and Russell Michaels followed Bev and her activist group from Florida and California to Ohio and Washington State to answer the question: How does America count its votes? Bev has proven our votes can be stolen without a trace by Diebold voting machines. She is also a witness in John Brakey’s Audit Arizona lawsuit seeking redress for the recent Arizona primary that has national implications as well.
