Tales of Tyranny IV: The Bert Wasch Story

Posted: October 22, 2013 at 11:45 am   /   by

All Bert Wasch wanted to do was build and live in his retirement home on five acres of land he purchased in rural Thurston County. It was his own personal, humble American dream. Bert asked the County for permission to build and paid the necessary fees.
