Some of those previous owners include the former Imperial Wizard of the KKK (that's the national leader of the Klan for the rest of us...)
Daryl is an African-American man who grew up in Chicago and around the world as an, "emabssy brat" (his words). When he returned to the States, Daryl began to see racism all around him, and found himself the target of racist threats and violence. Instead of becoming afraid and turning away, Daryl decided to ask some Klan members, in person, "how can you hate me when you don't even know me?"

Klamath Basin Refuge - water conflicts and bird die-offs

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 04/30/2012

Hosted by Stephanie Potter

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Lower Klamath were drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge in Southern Oregon and Northern California is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month 10,000 or more birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade. The refuge is last in line for water, behind farmers and endangered fish, and as global warming heats up, scarce water supplies are likely to become even scarcer.

Tune in and join the discussion as a representative from the US Fish and Wildlife Service provides an initial overview, and then host Stephanie Potter is joined by Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild and Jim McCarthy of WaterWatch to talk about the issues and what needs to be done.

 
 
 

 

Klamath Wildlife Refuges -- for the birds?

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 04/30/2012

Most of the lakes and marshes of the Klamath Basin were "reclaimed" and drained for agriculture nearly 100 years ago--only 20% remain, but the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex on the Oregon/California border, is still the most important waterfowl habitat on the Pacific Flyway. However, last month over 10,000 birds died there from overcrowding as a result of a water cut-off by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This was the biggest die-off in a decade. The refuges there are last in line for water, behind farmers and endangered fish, and as global warming heats up, scarce water supplies are likely to become even scarcer.  Matt Braun, spokesperson for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) provides an initial overview, and then host Stephanie Potter is joined by Steve Pedery of Oregon Wild and Jim  McCarthy  of WaterWatch.

(Unique among the more than 500 wildlife refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System, the USFWS allows broad-scale commercial agriculture within the Tule Lake and Lower Klamath refuges that provides no benefit to wildlife. View interactive maps here to see how the Klamath Basin has been altered by development.)

CALIFORNIA 90420, a documentary on Oaksterdam University

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Fri, 04/27/2012

Host Jay Thiemeyer interviews filmmaker Dean Shull about his new documentary CALIFORNIA 90420 which  looks at Oaksterdam University, the nation's only college preparing students for work in the medical marijuana industry. The film shows at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland starting Friday, April 27th.

90420 focuses on the rapidly open and growing marijuana trade in the State of California. The film explores the burgeoning 'above ground' industry through the eyes of four, 20-something characters whose real lives are caught up in the changing green landscape.

The film follows faculty and students at California's Oaksterdam University, the nation's first college to prepare students for careers in the ever changing marijuana industry and the epicenter of legalization efforts in California. Recently federal agents from the DEA and IRS raided Oaksterdam University as well as the home of Oaksterdam University Founder, Richard Lee. Although medical marijuana is legal in California, it is still prohibited under federal law, leaving Oaksterdam in a precarious legal limbo.

CALIFORNIA 90420 is a New Coast Productions Film directed by Dean Shull (Waiting...) and produced and written by Dean Shull, Steve Roberts and Colin Goldman. The film features Dale Sky Jones and Oaksterdam co-founders Richard Lee and Jeff Jones.
