There's a little–known phone number you can call to leave a message for the governor or your state legislators. We meet the woman who has spent the last 15 years making sure people know they can have a voice in state and local government – and sharing that phone number.



At 2:08 p.m. – Sound Reflections: Vintage Instruments, Timeless Sounds (archive from 12/13/07)
Kearney Barton's 50 year old studio microphones have been used to record music from the Sonics to the Seattle Symphony. In an archive from December 13, 2007, Kearney tells Amanda Wilde why the old equipment still sets the standard for recording in the 21st century.

At 2:20 p.m. – Nancy Amidei and Civic Engagement
There's a toll–free number you can call to leave a message for the governor or your state legislators. The number isn't well–publicized. But thousands of Washingtonians know about this number because of Nancy Amidei, who teaches at the School of Social Work at the University of Washington. She's spent the last 15 years showing people how they can have a voice in state and local government. Her turning point was during a Congressional hearing in the other Washington.
1–800–562–6000 is the Legislative Hotline to leave messages for Governor Gregoire and the State Legislature.

At 2:50 p.m. – Soulumination (archive from 1/7/08)
Think of the photographs you display in your home. They are likely of happy moments, the times you want to always remember. Local photographer Lynette Johnson captures experiences that some people may rather forget – she photographs dying and seriously ill children through her foundation, Soulumination. In an archive conversation from January 7, 2008, Lynette tells Megan Sukys how it all started for her.
