ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Tom Stokely, former Hayfork resident and Trinity County natural resources planner, is very knowledgeable about the implications of Governor Brown’s “Peripheral Tunnels” project on Trinity River, State of Jefferson and California. July 2012 Governor Brown announced his plan to drill two 33’ tunnels 150 feet under California’s Delta, big enough to siphon the entire Sacramento River to thirsty San Joaquin Valley agribusiness and Southern California cities. Previous plans to build a “Peripheral Canal” were defeated by California voters in 1982 during Brown’s first tenure as governor of California. The Governor is refusing to define any specifics of the project and is asking citizens to just “trust us.” Water export amounts and fishery protection flows are being put off until after project is constructed, a “plumbing before policy” decision to misinform the public about true costs. Cost estimates are significantly underestimated. While Peripheral Tunnel proponents claim that the beneficiaries of the project will pay for it, they are planning on substantial subsidies from state and federal taxpayers amounting to billions more borrowed dollars. Much more cost effective means of providing water supply reliability including recycling, conservation, storm-water capture, desalination and reinstatement of the urban water preference in State Water Project contracts. A cost/benefit study found for every $2.50 spent on project, there would be only $1 in benefits. Tom Stokely worked for 20 years on passage and implementation of 2000 Trinity River Record of Decision that reallocated water back to Trinity River for fishery restoration. He now works for California Water Impact Network and lives in Mt. Shasta. He is a public member of federal advisory committee for Trinity River Restoration Program, the Trinity River Adaptive Management Working Group. California Water Impact Network promotes equitable and environmental use of California's water, including in-stream uses, through research, planning, public education, and litigation. More info: call Tom Stokely at 926-9727 or email tstokely@att.net

Fracking involves injecting millions of gallons of water, sand, and chemicals thousands of feet underground at high pressure to crack the rock and release trapped pockets of oil and gas. The gas leaks into our water table with the chemicals used to extract it. The damage is irreversible. This dangerous method of oil and gas drilling is already causing poisoned water and air in Wyoming, earthquakes in Ohio, and tap water that lights on fire in Pennsylvania. You can bet there is already Frack waste in your water in California, Colorado, and other states. It is not regulated anywhere. The underground explosions risk more earthquakes, and we are already seeing cancer clusters in neighborhoods around frack sites. While we know fracking is happening in California's Monterey Shale formation - which extends from Monterey County and the Central Valley to the Northern Los Angeles area - there are currently no regulations protecting our water from fracking in California. It's not even clear if it can be practiced safely. History has shown that the cement casing crack within 3 years. This is related to the Gulf disaster. Yet the Department of Conservation is moving forward with regulations that will continue to allowing fracking in California. We have enough water problems in California already. There is a global water shortage already. We don't need flammable water too. Until fracking can be demonstrated safe, which is unlikely, Governor Brown should Ban Fracking in California

I am not telling anyone not to eat meat, but it is important to know where your meat comes from and how is is raised and slaughtered. If you buy commercially produced meat, you are supporting an industry that is unnecessarily cruel to animals. If you have 11 minutes, please watch this video for a short and painful education about what really happens at commercial animal factories and slaughterhouses. Then consider paying the extra money to buy your meat from local sources in Northern California, where the animals are allowed to live out a more natural life outdoors and are slaughtered more humanely.

"75% of food and fiber we grow today was discovered and cultivated by native farmers and hunter-gatherers of North, Central and South America. These indigenous varieties include corn, beans, peanuts, cotton, potatoes, tomatoes, chili peppers, avocados, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, squashes, black walnuts, pecans, chocolate, tobacco, rubber, sunflowers, and medicinal herbs and plants." Read rest of article

"When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money." - Cree teaching

For 10 years, Angelis’ first CD, Violin Voyager, resided on Taiwanese Billboard charts.

Her 1996 CD, Esperanza, was selected as a “Choice Recording” by Strings magazine and received a nomination by Just Plain Folks for Best Instrumental Album. Kim’s 2005 release, Gypsy’s Odyssey, made Top Ten lists from Santa Cruz, CA, to Herford, Germany. Kim Angelis majored in music at University of CA, Irvine, where she studied with the best violinists in Los Angeles Philharmonic. She won every available scholarship and was featured soloist with UCI Symphony, performing major works by Vivaldi and Saint-Saens. After graduating Magna Cum Laude, she met and later married guitarist Josef Gault, who introduced her to World Music. Kim Angelis is very grateful to be accompanied, at every concert, by her husband, Josef Gault, on guitar. "Josef Gault, the guitarist, enhanced it all.

LA Weekly calls them “cross pollinated gypsy music... one of the most thrilling young acts on the planet.” Formed in 2005 and playing everywhere from hippest LA clubs to festivals, cultural centers, museums, parades, and even on the street, the gypsy jazz band includes two explosive violins, the world's best slap bass player, musical saw, flamenco and gypsy jazz guitar, opera, jazz and gypsy vocals, and one little banjolele. Tackling everything from French hot jazz to wild Serbian and Transylvanian gypsy anthems, Flamenco, and oddball originals, the band is a not to be missed event for world music lovers...and everyone will love this intoxicating mix of music! The dynamic, virtuosic, fiery and peripatetic quartet that comprises Fishtank Ensemble take their roots both from their own varied musical and national backgrounds, as well as from their adventures and travels. The singer Ursula sang opera on the streets and town squares of Italy, until she found a love of gypsy music. Their French violinist voyaged around all of Europe in a handmade mule-drawn caravan for ten years, collecting music and experiences. Their Serbian bass player has spent time playing with gypsies as well as some of rock and roll's legends, and aptly defends his reputation as the best slap bass player in the world. And the guitarist is a master of flamenco and gypsy jazz guitar who honed his craft in the gypsy caves of Granada, Spain. Whatever wild time you can expect from this band, it will never match their out of this world performance!
