CONNECTIONS. Here we gather, from
the little bird in the Everglades in Florida, the
grizzlies in Montana, wolves in Alturas
California, to the suckerfish in Klamath Falls,
Oregon. Is it the silvery minnow that caused
your home to be destroyed? Which reproduces
faster, a bunny or a wolf? What did the
dying little girl whose health insurance was
discontinued in Oregon think about the $15 million
fish screen on the Klamath for a fish that they do
not know how many sucker fish there were, how many
there are, or how many they want, but they are
'endangered', so they are more important than her.
And let's destroy the loggers to close down the
forest roads to protect the spotted owl that
burned up (along with some firemen and homes)
because we can't access the raging fires.
CONNECTIONS will grow.
It is a place you can call home. Feel free to send

Willamette River Basin -
Lawsuit may complicate boost in available Oregon dam
water, Capital Press 3/20/2020.
"...the federal agency would devote up to 327,650
acre-feet of water to agriculture from the 1.6 million
acre-feet that can be stored behind the dams...Another
159,750 acre-feet would be allocated for municipal and
industrial uses, while more than 1.1 million acre-feet
would go to fish and wildlife habitat...complaint filed
by Waterwatch of Oregon, Northwest Environmental Defense
Center and Wildearth Guardian.."

Tombstone needs our help!
21st Century Shootout at the OK Corral – Life and Death in Tombstone, Smoked Bear 5/11/12. "A few years ago, this same federal government that requested, and received, permission from Tombstone to use Tombstone’s water to fight forest fires has now shut down Tombstone’s access to its water leaving it with only minutes of water to protect the health, safety and welfare of its citizen from being destroyed by fire...Their minutes of water will prove worthless in saving the lives and livelihoods of the residents of Tombstone."
PLF asks the Supreme Court to rule that EPA isn't above the law! PLF, posted to KBC 3/10/11. "Not only has EPA told the Sacketts they can't build a house on their own property, it ordered them to restore the land to EPA's liking - or face tens of thousands of dollars per day in fines!"
an unwarranted “wetlands” designation in Idaho,
Pacific Legal Foundation 11/17/10
Another town needs help. Please watch this
20 minute video. We lived this
in 2001 when our water was shut off, and other
Klamath Basin farmers lived a water shutoff this
year. People with water rights signed by the
President of the U.S.A. Thanks Awaker on our
for finding this sad story told by Americans on
the East Coast being destroyed by environmental
groups and the same government agencies.
Water Wars Wage
in Fresno, KMPH Fox News26. 2/4/09, Lloyd Carter, CA. Board
member of Water Impact Network and President of CA Save
Our Streams council was on a panel debating Delta
farmers and farm workers;
parent raises their child to be a farm worker? These
kids are the least educated people in America or the
southwest corner of this Valley. They turn to lives of
crime. They go on welfare. They get into drug
trafficking and they join gangs."
Note: this is the anti-American mentality of well-funded
groups trying to rewild the West and decimate our
livelihoods, our people, our infrastructure (dams), and
our farm supplies.)
