A Radiology Mistake . . . .
When I was 13, I had severe hip and joint
pain, and no doctor could figure out what
was wrong. They were even telling me to
exercise more for a painfully long time.
Finally, I found out I had a slipped capital
femoral epiphysis in my hip -- previously
missed by a radiologist.
I could not have had a better experience
than with Tyler Goldberg-Hoss. He guided
me through every step and never talked
down to me or my parents. With the
settlement I received, I know my medical
needs will be taken care of in the future.

single word, compassion. The essence of
compassion is a desire to alleviate the
suffering of others and to promote their
well-being. This is the spiritual principle
from which all other positive inner values
emerge.” — Dalai Lama

If anyone wants to know why I like
these quotes, they could be a topic for a

Since the license fee referendum of
2012, the Board of Governors has
voted to voluntarily maintain member
fees at the level set by the referendum
($325 annually for active members)
for three years until 2015. However,
financial projections have shown that
if costs remain at their current levels,
the WSBA’s reserves could be exhausted in the near future. The Board
Budget and Audit Committee has
recommended that, for fiscal 2016,
the fee be raised to $385. How do you
foresee the Board handling fee-level
proposals in the following years?
It is clear that the referendum forced us
to subsidize the license fee by spending reserves. Every member was subsidized up to $70–80 per year in their
license fees by spending reserves to
maintain the lower fee. This was a
short-term fix only, and if we are going
to meet our ongoing mission of service
to the members and the public, we must
raise the license fee or we will have to
fundamentally change what the WSBA
