• 89.1 FM KXPB-LP Pacific Beach (Pacific Beach Food Bank)
• 91.3 FM KOSW-LP Ocean Shores (City of Ocean Shores)
• 98.5 FM KGHO-LP Hoquiam Oldies – moving to 99.9 FM

Low Power FM stations are limited to 100 watts and cannot accept advertising, but can support operations with fund-raiser and “underwriting” announcements, similar to the way Channel 9 KCTS raises funds.

OLYMPIA – As state highway crews shift into winter gear, they have a few words of advice for drivers: be prepared and slow down.
Those simple words of wisdom could be the difference between a long wait on the highway or more time for family and fun.
“The last thing we want to do is see a car in the ditch,” said Mike Krahenbuhl, maintenance supervisor on Interstate 90 at Hyak. “That usually means the driver was going too fast or had to avoid someone else going too fast.”
Krahenbuhl has spent more than 40 years clearing snow and ice from Washington’s roadways. He said it takes just one person driving too fast or forgetting to prepare their vehicle for cold weather to cause a chain-reaction collision.
And it’s not just in the mountains, said Monty Mills, snow and ice program manager for the Washington State Department of Transportation.
“Prepare your car and prepare yourself for the conditions you will be driving into,” said Mills. “When the temperature drops, drivers all over the state need to be ready. We’re working to keep the highways open but need drivers’ help.”

The Mason County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search & rescue mission for a missing hunter, but found him deceased the next day.
On Monday, 10/21/13, around 9 AM, Owen Vrooman, a Mason County resident, was dropped off by a friend in the Mason Lake area in order to hunt. Owen was supposed to meet up with a friend in the Deer Creek area around 6:30 PM, but Owen never showed up. The Mason County Sheriff’s Office was called around 8:14 PM and began a Search & Rescue mission.
Over 6 search & rescue teams from three counties, along with K-9, searched for Owen. Mason County Sheriff’s Office Detectives and Chaplains met with family members and a news media release was prepared to be published, but today, 10/22/13, around 9:45 AM, right before a news release was to go out, Owen Vrooman was found deceased.
Coroner Wes Stockwell was able to notify next-of-kin. Foul play is not suspected in any way, but an autopsy is scheduled to be performed tomorrow.
No other information is available at this time.
