Pacific Gas and Electric says it's facing a criminal investigation, for possibly starting the state's largest wildfire so far this year. The company says in a new filing with federal securities regulators that the US Forest Service has reached an "initial assessment" that the fire started near a PG&E line. Reporter: Dan Brekke, KQED   Affordable housing is hard to come by for most Californians. In Sacramento, there's also a severe lack of affordable housing for low-income seniors. But construction is underway to help ease that shortage. Reporter: Chris Nichols, CapRadio  When we hear about homeowners in trouble or losing their homes, it's usually a story about foreclosure. But there's another process that can penalize homeowners – and sometimes result in people losing their homes. That process is called receivership. A new investigation from The Sacramento Bee found a company called the Bay Area Receivership Group has left some homeowners staring at massively excessive fees and forced them out of their homes.

A weekend of power shut offs and evacuations that could all have been avoided if only the US Forest Service put out the single tree fire that became the Cedar Creek Fire. I am really angry about this as it is just the latest example in a string of large fires that could have been stopped early, some that took lives and homes. Tax increases and stadiums were on our agenda again this week. More votes have been counted in the recall of Claire Syrett and the yes to recall side has expanded their lead.

More than 700 athletes finished the race.   The first across the finish line was Alex Whetman of Riverton, Utah. It took him 9 hours, 11 minutes, 17 seconds to swim 1.2 miles in Auke Lake, bike 112 miles on Glacier Highway and run a full 26-mile marathon through the Mendenhall Valley.   Liz Cullen of Gibson, British Columbia, was the top female finisher with a time of 10 hours, 23 minutes, 3 seconds.   The first person from Juneau to finish was Will Coleman, who was 14th overall. Beth Gollin was Juneau's first female finisher and 13th female overall.   John Bursell was Juneau's second finisher. He has completed several Ironman races in the past, and met his goal this time to qualify for the Ironman World Championship event in Hawaii in October.   “It was a great experience overall,” he said. “I think Ironman did a great job. I was super-impressed and proud of Juneau. You know, the way people turned out — the support was incredible, the volunteers were incredible. And we heard that over and over again from people who came from out of town to compete. This was basically the most supportive community they've ever raced in.”   Bursell said locals volunteered, loaned out their own personal bikes, opened up their homes to house athletes and even offered free car rides around town. According to a press release from Ironman, more than 1,400 people volunteered.   The event had a lot of challenges. Race officials cut the swim portion in half, due to the cold water temperatures in Auke Lake.   Before the race even began, logistics issues drove down turnout. In a press release, Ironman said “approximately 1,000” athletes came to Juneau for the event. An official list dated from April had identified more than 1,300 participants.   Juneau's destination marketing organization, Travel Juneau, worked closely with race organizers. Executive Director Liz Perry said there will be a full debrief to work on making the second Ironman Alaska event go smoother. Perry said there's a three-year contract, meaning Ironman Alaska will be back in Juneau in 2023 and 2024.   What's New in the 303:   XTERRA USA Championship returns to Colorado in August 2023 The 22nd annual XTERRA USA Championship off-road triathlon will return to Beaver Creek Resort in conjunction with a community festival in Avon, Colorado, on August 25-27, 2023.   XTERRA will host full-distance, sprint, relay, and beginner-friendly off-road triathlons along with trail runs, demo events, and a variety of activities for the family. This includes kid's races, yard games, exhibitors, food trucks, beer gardens, and live music at the open air Harry A Nottingham Park and Performance Pavilion in the heart of Avon.   “It's an amazing venue, for both its natural beauty and world-class facilities, and the support we receive from the community is incredible,” said Steve Andrus, XTERRA US Tour Manager.   “We're looking forward to building on the partnerships we established last year, and excited about our new date in August which provides us with more opportunities to engage with local partners and deliver a truly exceptional experience for participants.”   The main event will award US$25,000 in prize money to professionals, plus XTERRA USA Championship crowns to age group division winners, along with 51 qualifying spots into the 2023 XTERRA World Championship to be held in Trentino, Italy.   While this will be XTERRA's 14th year of racing at Beaver Creek Resort, it is just the second time XTERRA has hosted its national championship in the Colorado Rockies following 12 seasons at Snowbasin Resort in Utah (2009-2021) and eight years in Incline Village, Nevada (2001-2008).   The championship event starts with a one-mile swim in the cool waters of Nottingham Lake situated at 7,400-feet elevation. This is followed by ‘a fun, up-and-down, 16-mile mountain bike' – finishing with a 6-mile trail run through the aspens and into the village square.   The weekend of events is supported by partners from the Town of Avon, Beaver Creek Resort, US Forest Service, The Cycle Effect, and Walking Mountains Science Center.   “We enjoyed collaborating with XTERRA and their use of Nottingham Lake and Park, and the Performance Pavilion really showcased Avon,” said Danita Dempsey, the Culture, Arts & Special Event Manager for the Town of Avon. “We are thrilled to have them back.”   Upcoming Multisport Events in Colorado (runningintheusa.com) Upcoming Classic Runs in Colorado (runningintheusa.com)   Video of the week: RACE DAY RECAP! *1st ever IRONMAN Alaska*   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Evan Guzik is a Public Affairs Officer for the US Forest Service out of the Bridger Teton Forest and joins the podcast to walk me through the basics of wildfires. Not only am I honored to have the US Forest Service represented on my show, but it's made even more special because Evan and I served together in the Marine Corps nearly 20 years ago. My knowledge of wildfires is very basic. Aside from the obvious, I don't really know a whole lot so Evan and I thought it would be good to just cover the basics of how all this stuff works so that we can all learn together and gain a better understanding of wildfires.We cover what prescribed burns are and why they're useful, how fires are managed from beginning to end, what to do if you see a fire or you're around one when you're hiking or backpacking, and how to handle yourself in an area after a burn. There's a lot of great stuff in this episode that to me is really helpful and I think you're going to really enjoy it. Just the fact that I now know more about what goes on in our forests is huge because I figure the more I know, the better a steward I can be out there.If you want to learn more about wildfires, Evan provided some links that I've listed in the show notes so be sure to check those out when you have a chance. Again, this episode is really special to me so thanks to Evan for doing the legwork to make this happen, and thanks to the US Forest Service for being willing to put this out there!Show Notes Introductions Catching up with EvanEvan's backstoryWildfire burns, prescribed burns, and a brief history of forest managementHow a fire turns from good to badHow a wildfire is fought and managedHow to handle a wildfire if you see one How the Forest Service gauges fire danger To build or not to build a fire?What the public can do to help prevent wildfires Advice for hiking through a burn areaLinkshttps://inciweb.nwcg.gov/ (fire information)https://www.nifc.gov/ (Wildland Fire resources)https://www.nwcg.gov/ (Wildfire Training)https://www.nfpa.org/Public-Education/Fire-causes-and-risks/Wildfire/Firewise-USA (Home Defensible Space)https://smokeybear.com/By Land LinksLEARN HOW TO BACKPACK: https://www.learnhowtobackpack.com/YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChSSISEgIfwYz2cc0aHQj3gJOIN A FACEBOOK GROUP: https://byland.co/facebook-groupsINSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/emory_by_landDONATE: https://byland.co/donate

In a previous podcast, Historian Dale Cox set the stage for the American attack on the Fort at Prospect Bluff. In this episode, Dale recalls the actual determined American campaign and the fort's stubborn resistance between July 10 and July 27, 1816. This was not rag-tag defense by desperate self-liberated former slaves. These were well-trained British colonial marines who were black. Some indeed were former slaves, but all considered themselves free men and women. The fort's defense was an all-hands operation with the wives and children filling bags with gun powder that the marines used to fire artillery rounds that kept the Americans at bay on the Apalachicola River in Spanish Florida. The marines successfully warded off continued American naval barrages until the Americans' very last shot, when everything changed in a flash. Reenactors portray British Colonial Marines of the 1816 era.   When open, visitors can walk the grounds of the fort. The National Park Service teamed with the US Forest Service to conduct a non-invasive above-ground survey of the fort's former confines. (Below) Pompey Fixico, a Seminole Maroon descendant from Los Angeles, spoke at the 200th Commemoration of the Battle of the Fort at Prospect Bluff, in 2016.  Amidst the rubble, the Americans landed unopposed at the fort at Prospect Bluff. Authorities interviewed and executed some. And, regardless of previous manumission, the Americans condemned free, self-liberated maroons back into slavery, whether that was in the United States or in Spanish Florida. A few months later, in the late fall of 1816, the British finally returned, only to find the fort destroyed and its occupants dead or re-enslaved. Then-Captain Woodbine picked up stragglers who had fled into the woods after the explosion. He resettled them at Nero's Town on the Suwannee River, still, in Spanish Florida.   The Secretary of War forwarded to Congress a report on the Destruction of the Negro Fort, wholly "justifying" US action in the Spanish Florida territory, based on military reports.  Dale Cox examines the fighting, the explosion, and the grim aftermath for the fort's defenders. TwoEggTV produced a video feature that can be used as a supplement to this podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Uq8tl0tZBc   Host Patrick Swan is a board member with the Seminole Wars Foundation.

#067:  Real Organic grain farmer Anna Jones-Crabtree of Vilicus Farms in Montana shares her farm's vision for a more sustainable approach to their land and local food system. Through diversifying their plantings and income streams, and focusing on customer relationships that offer them more protection than is typical of commodity farmers, Vilicus is primed to become a model farm for organic and sustainable grain production. But...how much will that matter if the rest of the system operates with an industrial mindset? Anna Jones-Crabtree holds a Ph.D in Civil and Environmental Engineering  and is a registered professional engineer and an early accredited US Green building Professional. She has fostered a national sustainable operations effort for the US Forest Service serving as the first Regional Sustainable Operations Coordinator and as the National Sustainable Operations Director.

The lack of enforcement is also jeopardizing the overall health of the customers who support the organic movement; customers who are not getting what they pay for at market but still paying a premium price.

Sen. Martin Heinrich talks with correspondent Laura Paskus about New Mexico's wildfire season, what the future might hold, and the need to professionalize the country's federal wildland firefighting workforce. In the Gila National Forest, the Black Fire ignited on May 13—and has already grown into the state's third largest wildfire in history. Fire behavior analyst Arthur Gonzales, with the Southwest Incident Management Team #5 talks about the conditions fueling the giant fire. "I started this business in 1995, and I've seen a lot of large fires,” he tells correspondent Laura Paskus. “But it is surprising, Laura. It's surprising. And it should surprise everybody. These are unprecedented conditions.” Gonzales also talks about the fire's footprint, the varying levels of fire severity within the perimeter, and what people might expect to happen in the Gila this summer. The Line Opinion Panel reacts to the U.S. Forest Service's decision to pause all prescribed burns for at least 90 days.

Many of the decisions we make require us to compare numbers. Which car is most fuel efficient? How is a stock performing relative to the market? How risky is one medication versus another? A problem arises when we fail to make these comparisons in the right units.In this episode of Choiceology with Katy Milkman, we look at the mistakes we make when we overweight absolute numbers and neglect their relative value.Damon Lesmeister is a wildlife biologist in Oregon who studies a very special bird: the northern spotted owl. This iconic animal is struggling to survive in the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. Among other challenges, the northern spotted owl is being crowded out of its habitat by an invasive species: the barred owl. Conservationists are now faced with a difficult decision, but one that is made more clear by properly comparing the relative sizes of the two owl populations.Damon Lesmeister is a research wildlife biologist with the US Forest Service and holds courtesy faculty appointments with Oregon State University in the Departments of Fisheries and Wildlife, and Forest Engineering, Resources and Management.Next, Yale finance professor Kelly Shue joins Katy to talk about places where non-proportional thinking is likely to occur and why it''s such an easy mistake to make. She explains how the dollar value change of a share is much less important than the percentage change. Focusing solely on the dollar value can lead to consequential investor errors.Kelly Shue is a finance professor at Yale University and serves as an associate editor at The Journal of Finance and Journal of Financial Economics She previously served as an editor at the Review of Finance.You can read more about non-proportional thinking in financial markets in Kelly Shue's research paper co-authored with Rick Townsend.Finally, Katy discusses how you can avoid these non-proportional errors by making calculations that consider the denominator in any decision involving a ratio.Choiceology is an original podcast from Charles Schwab.

Read the companion article here. With Dr. Susan Cordell, Director and Research Ecologist, US Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station, Hilo, Hawai'i. How might a more culturally inclusive viewpoint replace negative historical language associated with invasive plant biology? “In many parts of the world, we cannot uncouple the fact that humans and natural systems are linked and that pristine landscapes are often, in fact, a mirage.” This quote from a paper authored by our guest and colleagues was published recently in Frontiers of Ecology and Evolution. Noticeable right away is that this essay gets very quickly into talking about the language we use when we talk about nature. Our guest and her multi-disciplinary team have taken a unique approach to ecological restoration that considers language and cultural context around how plants in complex ecosystems can be managed. To learn more about Dr. Cordell's work, please read her group's newest paper, inspired by the Liko Nā Pilina experiment: https://www.hawaii.edu/likonapilina/.

Ted Dergousoff and I sat down together in Arizona and had a conversation about his company, NewLife, forest restoration efforts, and the role they play in the 4FRI Initiative with the U.S. Forest Service. "We think that with an effective forest reforestation program working in concert with the US Forest Service and the 4FRI group, we've got an effective plan as to be able to maximize the value to all the stakeholders." The overall goals of the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI) are to restore the structure, pattern, composition, and health of fire-adapted ponderosa pine ecosystems, reduce fuels and the risk of unnaturally severe wildfires, and provide for wildlife and plant diversity in four national forests - the Kaibab, Coconino, Apache-Sitgreaves, and Tonto. Read more here: https://4fri.org/ The NewLife website is here: https://www.nlfpaz.com/ NewLife is the largest vertically integrated forest products business in the Southwest region with next-generation manufacturing facilities currently producing value-added wood products. NewLife works closely with an ecosystem of local industry partners including mechanical thinning crews and smaller forest products manufacturing facilities. NewLife has developed a manufacturing system to extract value from the low-quality fiber removed from the forest as part of its restoration initiatives. The expansion program will dramatically increase the total industry processing capacity within the Four Forests Restoration Initiative (4FRI) operating area, enabling large-scale forest restoration efforts across Arizona. The company will restore 25,000 acres of forestland per year, dramatically expanding the capacity to proactively address the rising concerns of wildfire. Through its subsidiary, NewLife is contracted by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) as part of the 4FRI. The landscape scale restoration project was designed to combat the impact of climate change and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire by restoring the forests to a more natural state while protecting large healthy trees, wildlife and the watershed. Wildfires have devastated the western forests, endangering local towns, causing severe damage and unleashing huge quantities of greenhouse gases. NewLife has managed Phase 1 of the 4FRI contract, the nation's largest forest stewardship contract, since 2017 and partners with the USFS on mechanical thinning initiatives throughout Arizona, with plans to expand to neighboring states. The company will use the proceeds of the bond to complete the build-out of its 425,000-square-foot industrial facility in Bellemont, Ariz., which will include a new high-speed sawmill, planer mill, and dry kilns. NewLife will also double the capacity of its Engineered Wood Products (EWP) plant and significantly expand the capacity of NewLife's Lumberjack sawmill located near Heber, Arizona. Production from the new sawmill will commence in the next six months and scale to full capacity in 2023, in a multi-phase roll-out that will create hundreds of new jobs with opportunities in the sawmill, remanufacturing facilities, forest operations, and hauling operations.

A trip to Alaska to follow the Salmon run changed the course of Chris Wood's life; upon returning home he resigned from his job working for an ice cream company. Choosing a new path, Chris resolved to dedicate his life to saving endangered fish and waterways. He began his career as a temporary employee with the US Forest Service in Idaho where he quickly realized the power of learning from mentors and teachers in the conservation field.  They - in turn - saw his passion, tireless work ethic, and optimism. He went on to become the senior policy and communications advisor to the Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, where he assisted in protecting 58.5 million acres of publicly owned land. He began to realize his potential to have a significant impact on the environment and our natural resources. In 2009 Chris began his leadership as President and CEO of Trout Unlimited.  Today TU is an internationally respected conservation powerhouse with close to an $80 million-dollar annual budget and national staff of 260 employees. TU has become the science delivery system for state and national agencies who have sustained large budget cuts.  Trout Unlimited, in partnership with their three hundred eighty-seven local chapters across the country, is protecting, reconnecting, restoring, and sustaining our cold-water resources. TU invests tens of millions of dollars annually for river and stream recovery, protecting head-water streams, thus reducing downstream drinking water filtration costs. This evangelist of fishing and fisheries conservation was recently inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.

Created by Mari Feher, Hosted by Ania WictorowiczSo you like backcountry skiing and mountaineering? If you are a beginner you may stick to known routes but if you do like getting off the heavily traveled areas and find your way through new pow in the backcountry, are you sure you can find your way out? What can you do to ensure you make it out safe without spending a cold and wet night huddled under the shelter of some branches? Do you rely on a compass, an app on your cell phone or try to rely on your memory to find your way ? What if you dropped your phone or the battery dies?  What is your next move? John Godino is the unofficial guru of navigation of the Pacific Northwest. He is a former US Forest Service wilderness ranger and wildland firefighter  with  a Masters degree in geosciences / cartography.  While  contributing to the new edition of Freedom of the Hills, he is  active in the sport of competitive orienteering and have been a  volunteer climb leader, navigation and mountaineering instructor at the Mazamas for the past 20 years. He is here to tell you what you can do to ensure you never find yourself in a pickle. Sources mentioned in the show: alpinesavvy.comcaltopo.comgaia.comcroc.orgApps to locate current gps coordinates:mygpscoordinatesmygpslocation
