Cameron Beierle, KACS general manager, hands a check to Sharon Gober who directs long-term recovery efforts in the Chehalis (Wash.) Valley. KACS service is available from Olympia to the coast and from Chehalis to White Pass in the Cascades. They recently received an FCC construction permit for a signal to reach the Long Beach peninsula, with potential coverage into Astoria, Ore. Upon completion, KACS will reach virtually all of southwest Washington and the South Puget Sound below Seattle. In recent years, KACS has been integrally involved in flood-relief efforts.
