The Whatcom Excavator WEDredge! page is a series of topical news stories and expose' articles available in "blog" format. Information comes to us from many local sources in many forms, and every piece is thoroughly vetted - checked for accuracy and loaded with links in evidence -- before being posted for public review and scrutiny. Readers are encouraged to submit leads and ideas in total confidence.
Everything submitted through the CONTACT US form will be kept in strict confidence. But readers can also share thoughts and comments openly by using the "Leave A Reply" input form. To "Leave A Reply," click on the Comments link located just under, and just right of, every article's title. The "Posting Rules" on the right side of the page explains that you can use any nickname you'd like to use if you don't want to reveal your identity. Don't fill-in your e-mail address or your website on the reply form unless you want other readers to contact you directly. Choose whatever level of discretion you feel comfortable with. Comments are "moderated," but WE only screen public input to the degree that personal attacks and outrageous profanity are not accepted. This site holds truth and honor in very high regard.
Categories: Just a subject-topic index.
Because the Dredge is in "blog format," the newest articles (posts) are located at the top of the page. By clicking on a category (such as Property Rights or Taxes), you can find all the Dredge articles related to that topic. Readers are welcome to suggest better categorization for any article by sending a note, using CONTACT US. We want folks to find what they're interested in quickly and easily.
When you click on "All," every article (post) that's ever been published here becomes available in one long "page." Almost all web browing software offers a page search utility of some sort - and you can search for a word like "marketplace" or "council" and locate all occurances of that word. This can usually be found through "Edit" then "Find." Experiment!
There's a wealth of local information here. Dredge around yourself - and please join in. WE cover what newspapers just don't, won't, or can't.
Final note: The Archives section just stores articles in groups, by date published. Dig-dig!
