The demise of the Condit Dam and the return of salmon to the White Salmon River

FELLING THE CONDIT DAM

For a century dams have blocked salmon runs throughout the Pacific Northwest. These dams have wiped out or greatly reduced many of the salmon runs in the Columbia River Watershed, which was once the greatest salmon river in the west. But in the past few years, some of these dams have been removed. On October 25th, the Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Klickitat County, WA, will be the next large dam to fall. After years of controversy and many missed deadlines, the dam will be blown up to make way for salmon to return to the upper reaches of the White Salmon River.

Joel Salatin, pioneer of chemical-free farming and local food advocate speaks on Local Food

Joel Salatin – Local Food (lecture)

The ominous subtitle of Eric Schlosser’s bestselling “Fast Food Nation” is “The Dark Side of the American Meal.” There is one food poisoning and contamination scare after another from beef to spinach to peanut butter to ground turkey. The latest is cantaloupes. You know the line, “It must have been something I ate.” Indeed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that food safety problems now account for roughly 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths annually. The growth of local food, community gardens, closer to home food networks, community supported agriculture subscriptions, and farmers’ markets are increasingly popular alternatives to industrialized agriculture.

Focusing on the new release ELEKTRAFONE, as well as rarities, remixes, classics and covers... Refreaked!! Like youve never heard them before.

Since the group’s inception from the eclectic underground of San Francisco’s performance art scene, Beats Antique has been notorious for making it nearly impossible to sit still. They meld their mediums as attentively as they fuse the cultures that inspire their sound. All self produced and composed, the trio creates a unique collage: an animalistic, raw musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic, while still maintaining an allegiance to the muses of class and beauty.

Well be offering tickets to Vagabond Operas Transylvanian Voodoo Ball Oct 29th, Ott w/ Pututure Primitive Nov21, & Blackaliscious w/ Lyrics Born & Freestyle Fellowship Oct 21st , Blockhead w/ Dj Cam Nov1. As Thank You Gifts for your Pledge...
