  • U.S. Sen. Cantwell learns about opioid crisis in Mason County

    SHELTON — U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell visited Shelton to host a roundtable with Mason County first responders, law enforcement and public health officials about the opioid epidemic.
    The Seattle Democrat led the discussion at Mason General Hospital on Saturday.
    Cantwell and California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris recently introduced legislation called the Comprehensive Addiction Reform, Education and Safety Act. It would hold drug manufacturers accountable for aggressive and misleading advertising and negligent distribution practices that help instigate the ongoing crisis.
    “It’s very important that the manufacturers do follow the law and do report,” Cantwell said. “Unfortunately, they’re not doing that. And one of the reasons why they’re not doing that is because the penalty for not report is so minimal. It’s in the tens of thousands of dollars. We want to change that to the millions of dollars so we’ll get their attention.”
    Cantwell’s proposal would double the maximum criminal penalty to $500,000 for companies who violate the act. The law would also target doctors who over-prescribe opioids.

  • 7-18-12 Mason County Commissioner Candidates Forum @ Shelton (336)

    Remarkably, all 3 positions for Mason County Commissioner are up for election. The level of earnest interest on the part of the candidates was uniformly high, but judging the voters' reciprocal feelings by the level of attendance--not so much. It's possible voter ennui was inspired by the dearth of competent well informed candidates in this field of 12 who arrived ready to have their depths plumbed.

    Applicants in attendance vying for votes to secure these well paid political offices were:

    MASON COUNTY COMMISSIONER
    District 1:
    Randy Neatherlin, Denny Hamilton, Travis Couture

    District 2:
    Frank Benevente, Randy Churchill, Mark Core, Roslynne Reed, Tim Sheldon
