Why we need to make the Holgate Channel Ross Island lagoon wake-free or non-motorized zones - and wh

Between Ross Island and the east bank of the Willamette lies the Holgate Channel, a patch of natural paradise only a couple miles south of downtown Portland. Sitting above the river on the eastbank, with osprey and eagles and blue herron as your companions, you have no idea you're anywhere near a city. . .except for the roar of jet skis and motor boat engines - not to mention the bass enhanced stereo systems booming across the river. Bob Sallinger, Urban Conservation director for the Portland Audubon Society has been working hard to create a wake-free zone in the Holgate Channel and ban motorized craft outright from neighboring Ross Island Lagoon. Tune in to hear why he believes this is necessary to make the Holgate Channel a safer place for humans and wildlife.

Bob Sallinger is the Conservation Director for the Audubon Society of Portland where he has worked since 1992. His current responsibilities include managing the Audubon Statewide Important Bird Area in Oregon, recovery of imperiled species, promoting wildlife conservation in the Portland Metropolitan Region, and overseeing the Society's wildlife rehabilitation center. He has a particular interest in anthropogenic impacts on wildlife and promoting wildlife stewardship in urban ecosystems. His favorite pastime rappelling off Portland area bridges to monitor the region's growing population of bridge nesting peregrine falcons. Bob has a B.A. in Biology from Reed College and a J.D. from Lewis and Clark Law School. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Coalition for a Livable Future and the East Multnomah County Soil and Water Conservation District. He lives in Northeast Portland with his wife Elisabeth Neely, two children, a dog, a cat (indoor!) and a couple of chickens

Michael Parenti - The Hypocrisies of Capitalism (lecture)

Michael Parenti is one of this country's foremost independent political analysts. He has taught at major colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad.  He is the author of numerous books including the classic "Democracy for the Few" and the highly acclaimed "The Assassination of Julius Caesar." His latest book is "Contrary Notions."

The "Newsweek" cover declares, "We are All Socialists Now." Some people have a different take on it. Paul Krugman, commenting on the bailout of banks and the giant insurance company AIG, says it's a classic example of what he calls "lemon socialism," that is, taxpayers bear the cost if things go wrong, but stockholders and executives get the benefits if things go right. Krugman, a Nobel Prize winner, is describing our economic system as it really is, not the fantasy tale spun for mass consumption by Alan Greenspan and his disciples. One salient aspect of the economic collapse is the focus on rotten apples like Bernard Madoff and Robert Allen Stanford. They are easy pickings. We can all be virtuous in denouncing them as cheats and swindlers. But what escapes scrutiny and discussion is the barrel itself. And that is the capitalist system.

"Potato Talk!" 

Potatoes are Oregon’s 7th biggest cash crop, grown primarily for frozen French fries and chips in the Columbia Basin, and in the Klamath Basin for fresh sales. Tubers also kept our grandparents and parents alive during the Great Depression. Maybe you’re cooking with them more now, to stretch those food dollars during these tight times. Though maligned by the low-carb craze, potatoes are a vitamin-and-fiber-rich nutritional punch.

On today’s show we’ll hear from:
•    Eco-chef and activist Bryant Terry who will tempt us with a recipe for “Cumin-Cayenne Mashed Potatoes with Carmelized Onions,” from his just released cookbook, Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African-American Cuisine. The third person to call (503) 231-8187 after the interview will win a free copy of the book!

•    Heirloom potato breeder Tom Wagner of Tater-Mater Seeds in Everett, Wash.

•    Local organic farmer Lyle Stanley of Gee Creek Farm, on potato varieties and how to plant them.

•    Roosevelt High School students overcoming learning disabilities in the garden.

12:00pm - 2:00pm
