Attention website visitors: You may have noticed production has dropped off sharply on this website. The reason is I have had some health problems recently coupled with being out of town a lot. However, my radio show, "Down in the Valley" will air tomorrow at 1 p.m. on KFCF 88.1 FM. You can listen live streaming at www.kfcf.org. My guest will be Bakersfield Californian columnist Lois Henry, who writes frequently about water issues in her neck of the woods. Stay tuned.
A note from Lloyd:
On Thursday, July 10, at 1 p.m. on KFCF radio, Fresno, I will interview Loren Wood, overseer of the Harlan P. Kelsey Arboretum, on my monthly radio show. If you are in the Fresno area, you can hear the show at 88.1 FM. You can hear it live streaming on the internet at www.kfcf.org.
Mr. Wood, who holds a master's degree from Harvard University and is the overseer of the Kelsey Arboretum, contends that Kelsey was the East Coast counterpart of John Muir and was an acclaimed native plant horticulturalist as well as a driving force in the establishment of several national parks in the Eastern U.S. Wood has written a book entitled "Beautiful Land of the Sky."
Tune in if you get a chance.
I will be interviewing Richard Bookbinder tomorrow at 1 p.m. PDT, live on KFCF radio in Fresno, 88.1 FM, and also streaming live worldwide on www.kfcf.org. Bookbinder works for TerraVerde Capital Management LLC, a New York-based investment firm that specialzes in sustainable infrastructure including water, power, agriculture, transportation and waste management. TerraVerde has released a report on the water crisis worldwide and what can be done to solve it. Bookbinder will also be talking about drought conditions in California. Tune in if you get a chance.
