(Part 2 of 3) Today I'm joined by Marcus from 'the Return of the Repressed' podcast to discuss Jim Jones and Jonestown. Marcus walks us through Jim Jones's early career, his psychiatric history, Guyanese history and anthropology, the Ukiah era, welfare scams, drug rehabs, several more interesting topics, and my personal favorite: the very curious crossover between Jones's ministry, the Mendocino State Hospital, Emmanuel Swedenborg, and Herb Mullin. Oh, and the first school shooter in the US.

November 11, 2022 -- The Arts Council of Mendocino County will soon receive over 3 million dollars in grant funding from a statewide program called the California Creative Corps. The California Creative Corps is a pilot program aimed to help communities recover from the impacts of the pandemic. The grant program invites artists to identify areas of need in their community, and to then create projects to ameliorate these issues. The program is funded through the state's 2021, one time allocation of 60 million dollars to the California Arts Council. The Arts Council of Mendocino will partner with the Nevada Arts Council to help local artists identify areas of need in our unique neighborhoods, brainstorm projects, and apply for grants when the money becomes available in the spring of 2023.

In California, the electoral contest has at stake the governorship and several congressional positions at the state and national levels, in Mendocino county, voters in several localities will decide positions of city councils and measures for libraries and fire department funding. But for election officials and voter support organizations the focus of the day is to make sure that everyone eligible has access to exercise their right to vote. Hoy marca el final del ciclo electoral de este año. En California, la contienda electoral tiene en juego la gubernatura y varios cargos en el Congreso a nivel estatal y nacional, en el condado de Mendocino, los votantes de varias localidades decidirán posiciones de los ayuntamientos y medidas para el financiamiento de bibliotecas y bomberos.

October 31, 2022 - This past weekend Mendocino county started the celebration of the spookiest holiday of the year, Halloween, n ancient celebration tied to the harvest and in many cultures also has a connection with the spiritual world. In modern western cultures, Halloween is a time when people of all ages have the opportunity to dress up as their favorite characters and go door to door collecting candy.
October 26, 2022 — The Surface Transportation Board, the federal entity that regulates railroads, issued another ruling on the Great Redwood Trail this week, deciding that the agency can convert 176 miles of line to a trail. The Great Redwood Trail Agency will be allowed to railbank the track, which means filling it in with aggregate or dirt so that the railroad ties serve as a frame for the trail. The track runs from Commercial Street in Willits, where the Skunk Train depot is, to just outside Eureka. Robert Pinoli, the President and CEO of Mendocino Railway, the Skunk Train's parent company, did not know what the Agency's plans regarding the depot are. Representatives for the Agency and the State Coastal Conservancy, which is now in charge of the trail, have not addressed our question about the depot. Last week, the Surface Transportation Board rejected Mendocino Railway's bid to purchase thirteen miles of track from the depot to Longvale. A few hours after the Surface Transportation Board's Monday- afternoon approval to railbank the line, Senator Mike McGuire held a virtual Town Hall to unveil the first step of the trail's “master plan,” a process he expects will take two to three years before building the trail can begin. Karyn Gear, of the State Coastal Conservancy, is the Executive Director of the Great Redwood Trail Agency. The Conservancy has been involved in conservation projects on the shoreline as well as inland rivers bearing anadromous fish. Gear spoke about her organization's role in the planning process. “The Conservancy was asked by Senator McGuire and the Legislature to take a leadership role in doing the master planning for this project, and also to help be the interim staff for the Great Redwood Trail Agency,” she began. “The Legislature appropriated ten million dollars to the Conservancy to do just that, to help move this project forward. So the first thing we did, after we started looking for additional staff with expertise to work on this, was to start to develop a request for proposals to look for consulting firms to help with the master planning process.” The Conservancy settled on Alta Planning and Design, which has offices all over the state. McGuire insisted that there is plenty of money for the project, announcing that, “We have the funding sources for all of the trail master plan, and we have money in the bank for construction. We were able to secure ten and a half million dollars in state funds to pay for the staffing and master plan of the Great Redwood Trail. This is going to take us through the next several years of hard work and planning the trail. And a half billion dollars, five hundred million dollars, has been secured for the State Coastal Conservancy for projects that will help us fight our climate crisis and build trails of statewide significance. That includes the Great Redwood Trail.” McGuire and members of the Trail Agency hope that private landowners alongside the trail will take advantage of opportunities to offer hospitality services and amenities to trail users. Wild camping will not be allowed, but the senator enthused about one site that he said has already committed to providing a campground. “Eventually, what you're going to see are authorized camping spots throughout the trail,” he said. “In fact, just last year…the state, along with the Wildland Conservation Board, just purchased the old Lone Pine Ranch,” a remote forested property on the eastern bank of the Eel River, on the border of Mendocino and Trinity counties. It was formerly owned by Dean Witter, who bought it in the 1940's. It stayed in his family until his heirs decided to sell it to conservation groups. The Conservation Fund's website says that, “For many years, our partners at The Wildlands Conservancy owned a 3,000-acre portion of the Lone Pine Ranch. But in 2019, they sought our help to protect the remaining 26,000 acres…The support for this project has been tremendous with the help of Governor Newsom, Secretary of Natural Resources Crowfoot, the Center for Biological Diversity, California Wildlife Conservation Board, and the California State Coastal Conservancy.” McGuire described the property as “some of the most spectacular land that you've ever seen. It's 30,000 acres. It will have 12 miles of riverfront trail. That's going to be our first authorized campground. You're going to have restrooms there, be able to stock up on provisions and water. This is a game changer for the trail.” Deven Young, with Alta Planning and Design, which is preparing the master plan, said that the design could include enhanced access for CalFire vehicles, though McGuire pointed out that trail users are not among the main culprits, when it comes to human-caused fires. And McGuire referred to a ranger service that he hopes to deploy along the trail to pick up trash and assist travelers. Young spoke about ideas to create solar-powered hotspots that would enable hikers to call in emergency responders if someone gets hurt. “A lot of it comes down to wayfinding in and around the corridor itself,” he said. “It's remote. So demarcating and outlining and creating points along the corridor is really critical. As part of that wayfinding, we've actually found remote, really rugged trails have a lot of success using things like bluetooth beacons” with tiny solar panels along the trail, which allow hikers to have cell phone access and call for help. Timelines and exact figures are not available yet. And it will take a separate ruling from the Surface Transportation Board to allow railbanking south of Willits to Ukiah, and on to Cloverdale. Carol Hart, Chairwoman of the Great Redwood Trail Agency, is pushing to make it happen within a lifetime. “And I really hope, for our eighty-year-old plus people who have tuned in, that they are going to get out on this trail,” she enthused. “They are going to get to see the phenomenal Eel River Canyon, and the Founders Trail, and enjoy what this trail will have to offer.”
October 24, 2022 — Drug overdose deaths increased dramatically last year, with the availability of ever more powerful synthetic and addictive drugs. Dr. Jeanine Miller, the director of the county's Behavioral Health Department, told the Board of Supervisors last week that opioids and synthetic drugs are taking a heavy toll.* “We went from 43 (overdose deaths) in 2020 to 72 in 2021,” she said. Three additional people who died from overdose were determined to have intentionally committed suicide. “When we look at opioids as a whole, we're looking at natural, semi-synthetic, and synthetic. That's our number one. If we separate that out, and just look at the synthetic, which is fentanyl, our number one overdose is actually methamphetamine, followed very close to fentanyl. We believe fentanyl would be actually the number one if it wasn't for Narcan and Naloxone, and we continue to work on getting that in our community.” The opioid blocker Naloxone was first approved as a fast-acting medication for opioid overdose in 1971. But Narcan, the nasal spray that can reverse overdose within minutes, only received tentative FDA approval in 2018, with final approval granted in April of the following year. Since then, it's become a mainstay for first responders. A smattering of communities across the country have installed vending machines, where people can help themselves to a free box of Narcan. Some local organizations offer it for free to people suffering from drug addiction, and to their friends and family members. On Saturday during Farmers Market, county, tribal, and non-profit workers set up tables in Alex Thomas Plaza in Ukiah to share information about drug overdose and treatment, and to spread the word about the rising death rate. Lindsey Daugherty, the Executive Director of NAMI Mendocino, the local branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, spoke about what's still being learned about Narcan. Some reports indicate that people who have overdosed multiple times require more than one dose of Narcan to be revived. “There is some research out there to suggest that we are developing some kind of an immunity to the Narcan,” she said. “Or that the opiates are becoming stronger and stronger, or being taken in higher doses. So that is one theory. Another theory is that it can take a couple of doses of Narcan to bring someone back to consciousness. Typically, you would give a dose and wait two minutes to see how that goes, and give another as needed.” She added that “Narcan itself is not psychoactive. It's an opiate blocker, so it blocks the opiate receptors in the brain, stops that person from being high immediately, and throws them into acute withdrawal, so really intense withdrawal symptoms.” She pointed out that Narcan is still relatively new, but that “There is no known side effects currently to giving people multiple doses of opiate blocker.” Gabriel Ray, who works for the Pinoleville Nation's Native American Youth and Family Empowerment Program, is working on an approach he hopes will prevent kids from needing emergency treatment. He said he is “teaching kids about their culture. I think it's important to know your history, where you came from…we don't know our culture. We're picking up other types of culture, and sometimes that may be gang culture. So getting to our kids younger is good, and then working with the families. Having as much support as we can provide to our tribal families.” Ray has offered talking circles in schools, and has a whole program called Boys with Braids, to teach kids about the cultural significance of long hair, and to discourage bullying. The Pinoleville Pomo Nation is the owner of New Life Clinic, an outpatient medication assisted treatment program that's been in Ukiah for about a year. Physician Assistant Noah Schutz gave an overview of the program, which includes three medications: Suboxone, which is widely available as an outpatient treatment; the traditional Methadone; and Naltrexone, what Schutz calls “a full antagonist.” He said many of the clinic's approximately 155 patients have found out about the clinic's services by word of mouth, but also through referrals from the hospital, probation, parole, and jail. “Basically, it's giving our facility a call, and just saying, we're interested in treatment, and we set up a time, ideally that day, if not the day after, to get people some care,” he concluded. Jill Ells is the manager of the county's Substance Use Disorder Treatment program. She has been in the field for 23 years, and said, “I've never seen the likes of what is happening with our county right now. With the nation.” She explained that residential treatment is available, but some patients, especially kids, have to travel a long way to get it. The Ukiah Recovery Center offers residential treatment locally, and people with insurance through Partnership Health Plan can take advantage of services in seven counties, including Mendocino, that are part of a regional model. “So if we can't get you in a program here in Mendocino County, we absolutely can get you in a program in one of the other six counties that's a part of this regional model,” she declared. But Els has sent young patients for treatment as far away as Los Angeles. “Our adolescents are the concern,” she acknowledged. “Sending them clear to LA to me is not the solution. It is one of our county problems, yes.”
California is one of the states where undocumented students can get access to higher education, this week the California Community College Foundation is holding the 6th annual Undocumented Students Action Week. In Ukiah, the Mendocino College's Dream Center is organizing activities for students and staff.

Octibre 10 - 2022. Por Victor Palomino. La temporada de incendios forestales tradicionalmente alcanza su punto máximo entre julio y octubre, pero los funcionarios meteorológicos advierten sobre la posibilidad de incendios peligrosos antes de que termine la primavera. Para las personas que no hablan inglés, el acceso a la información de emergencia ha sido históricamente mínima o inexistente. Por este motivo en el condado de Mendocino, UVA Vecinos en Acción está realizando sesiones de capacitación en español de seguridad durante emergencias. Listos Mendocino es el nombre del programa de preparación para emergencias creado en Santa Bárbara que hoy se usa en todo el estado para ayudar a la comunidad a estar lista durante situaciones de emergencia. Los miembros de la comunidad también pueden inscribirse en un programa de certificación donde aprenden las herramientas para enseñar la capacitación básica en sus comunidades. UVA está llevando a cabo el programa de entrenadores por primera vez en Ukiah. Uva está realizando la capacitación los días 22 y 23 de octubre, más información en la página de facebook de UVA
The "Mendocino War" was a bloody conflict between the Yuki tribe and white settlers in Northern California. White settlers raided and stole Yuki lands and massacring hundreds of Yuki in the process. The Yuki fled to "The Mountain" in what is now known as the Jackson Demonstration State Forest to escape the violence. Those villages in the forest are now sacred sites to the Coastal Yuki and Northern Pomo tribes. The state of California is allowing logging companies to log the 50,000 acre Jackson Forest for profit to finance CalFire's operations fighting wildfires. Despite Gov. Gavin Newsom's direction for California state agencies to co-manage state lands with local Native American tribes and seek opportunities to return State lands to Native American tribes, the Dept. of Natural Resources has only designated 75 acres as "sacred sites." Flying solo, Scott talks with Pricilla Hunter, Polly Girvin and Andy Wellspring with the Pomo Land Back (@PomoLandBack) campaign and the Coalition to Save Jackson Forest (@savejacksoncoalition) about the ongoing campaign to save the Jackson Forest and the sacred sites within it. The campaign has seen backcountry blockades and tree-sit action as well as rallies and marches in Mendocino County and Sacramento. The campaigners see this as potentially the next great environmental struggle. We discuss. Bios// Priscilla Hunter is a Tribal Elder of the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians, former Chairwoman of the Tribe, and currently the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer. Priscilla is working to protect the Sacred Sites of her Northern Pomo and Coast Yuki peoples that are threatened by logging, road building and pesticide operations in the Jackson Demonstration State Forest, which is located in her homelands, also called Mendocino. Polly Girvin is a movement elder, Chicana activist, and civil rights and Federal Indian Law attorney graduated from the University of California Berkeley and Columbia University School of Law. Andy Wellspring is a member of Showing Up for Racial Justice, the Mendo Coast chapter. SURJ is white folks committed to racial justice nationally, and SURJ Mendo Coast is a member of the Coalition to Save Jackson State Forest and supporting the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians in this struggle to protect sacred sites and end commercial logging on Pomo Homelands. ----------------------------- Outro- Stuart James "NoDAPL" Links// Save Jackson Forest: https://savejackson.org/ Donate to support the tribe's legal strategy.

Episode 140: Erin GleesonThis week, Erin Gleeson joins us to #TalkCookbooks.What a fun episode! I packed up our recorder and microphones and headed south from San Francisco and into the woody, serene drive to Erin Gleeson's charming cabin-esque home in the South Bay. Just look at this enviable set-up—I wish we could record every episode here!And Erin even prepped us a plate of lavender shortbread, which is featured in her latest cookbook, and a warm pot of coffee:Anyway — we were at Erin's house to talk about her latest cookbook, The Forest Feast Road Trip.A California native, Erin spent her early career pursuing art and photography. But she was always drawn to food, and it quickly became the subject of much of her work. When a cross-country move brought her from bustling New York to a serene cabin in the Santa Cruz Mountains, she set her focus on working on cookbooks. Before long, her content was finding an audience online, and her signature aesthetic (hybrid watercolor-photography) was born. Soon after came her first cookbook, The Forest Feast: Simple Vegetarian Recipes from My Cabin in the Woods. To date, Erin has authored five vegetarian cookbooks. Her most recent, The Forest Feast Road Trip, is built around her family's extensive road trip, covering more than 2,500 miles around California.As Erin explored the state and stayed in 10 unique cabin-like places, she created recipes, art, and photography that evokes each stop, from Palm Springs to Mendocino.In today's show, Erin and I sit down on her deck to discuss her childhood filled with California produce, the career path that led her to Forest Feast, and about the travels that inspired her latest book. We've got a great chat and Erin takes a stab at our signature culinary game.I hope you enjoy my conversation with Erin.P.S. Just as I was leaving Erin's home in the mountains, I noticed her kids and their friends had set up a lemonade stand. For a few bucks you could grab a glass of lemonade—and, if you had enough cash on hand, a copy of The Forest Feast Road Trip.

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read by spotlighting efforts of censorship. The American Library Association tracks a rising trend in book challenges in the United States; eight months into 2022, the number of attempts to ban or restrict library resources in schools, universities and public libraries is on track to exceed record counts from 2021, with over 1,600 targeted titles. In 2022, most of the titles target LGBTQ people and themes. Listen to Ukiah Branch Librarian Melissa Eleftherion Carr, and bookseller Toni Wheeler, speak about local attempts to censor books and the rather surprising outcomes.
