Jan 4th 2017 – as many know, this past year this site has been off line. I have been working for a year on a federal Senate and Congressional seat. Am happy to say….my guys got in. My contract would not allow me to do this site, but that is all over now and after taking a month or so off, may start to do something a little different here.
Jan 11th 2017 – Well I was planning to start doing something local again….but. I received a call today from a PAC that I had been doing work for last year and was offered a position for the upcoming national 2018 senatorial races. Yes, the work is already started. I’m pretty much retired from my woodworking business now and have the time to devote to it. Considering the offer, I will continue keeping this site on hold. If something big happens here locally I will keep the twitter account and the site dormant, but available.
Sept 10th 2017: We are turning the site back on in anticipation of something big coming.
ABOUT: All material (c) Montesano Today and T0M FREDRIKSEN. Montesano Today was established May 7th 2012. We actually started broadcasting in 2011 but that was more informal. For years I ran this blog as a more writing editorial type format as well as acted as the main political/cultural editorialist for our local newspaper. We published area news/cultural stories for years. It got boring and quite time consuming so I quit doing it.
This was and always has been an opinion format blog. We are not a news site. If you don’t know the difference…go away.
In November 2014 we moved to a video format. All original video/audio content (c) montesanotoday.com. Reaching an average of approximately 50-100,000 unique viewers a month. We do not charge for anything, embed video ads or take advertising. Unlike local media….we can’t be bought. Except for rides in boats. We can be bought for rides in boats…or airplanes that fly aroud and do dips and stuff.
In 2016 I began doing media work for a national PAC organization and as of January 2017 have begun work permanently with that organization electing conservative Representatives and Senators on a national level. I don’t have the time I used to have so don’t expect this blog to be as active as it was.
CONTACT – see PRIVACY statement below prior to writing: you can also use @montesanotoday on Twitter
I can’t guarantee I will write back but you can try. Sometimes I get bored. TIPS: Try and give details. I never burn a tipper….feel free to send me a phone number or we can meet at a variety of secret location. Bonus attention to people in black coats, hats and a scarf over their face that like to meet in the fog and pop out at me and speak with a gravelly voice about public corruption.
PRIVACY: There isn’t any on the web. If you think there is you are an idiot. While montesanotoday.com does not share statistical information it collects in regards to site visitors, IP information, etc., your browser probably does. Emails, voice messages, and live show call-ins by viewers of a commenting nature are archived and subject to posting in a variety of formats, including but not limited to RSS podcast/videocast feeds, social media storage presentation, video presentation, as well as in text form for use in a variety of formats including web presention, newspaper publication, article presentation for other media, and other text and video uses at the discretion of Montesano Today.
COMMENTS: I don’t have time to proctor them. Nor do I care to post messages from someone called Skippy 314. If you are ashamed of putting your name next to what you have to say there are plenty of blogs around here that you would be happier at. Most of the time it is bots or other blogs and trolls trying to get traffic. If you want to comment on something, put the article on your Facebook/Google page or whatever social media you use and comment there. I have sharing buttons on all the pages.
We don’t maintain a Facebook page. We also post all our our articles on Twitter so you can follow us there and comment on them there as well. That is the only Social Media we maintain. Frankly I would like to get rid of that, but I do have a use for it here and there.
ARCHIVES: Videos after Jan 2016 will be for the most part archived now via our YouTube Channel. If you see something you want, save it – I can’t guarantee I will save or archive it.

CHARITY: We are all about helping people wanting to get on their feet by providing disposable phones for job interview etc. Here and there we run promotions.
