Oregon's Oldest Beekeeper, Gone but Not Forgotten

Remembering 99-year old Oliver Wendell Petty, A Beekeeper’s Beekeeper
June 9, 1914 — April 6, 2014

(SALEM) - Oliver PettyAs an early beekeeper in the Willamette Valley, Oliver Petty was instrumental in convincing farmers to rent bee hives to improve crop yields. Prior to that time, most beekeepers made their living by selling honey.

“Oliver, in his beekeeping career, had seen things that only we can dream about- thousands of acres of hairy vetch blooming all over the Willamette Valley and other bee forage untouched,” said beekeeper Dirk Olson.

PRESS TV: Ukrainian Anti-Semitism Revealed

Without question, this alleged act hearkens back to the Nazi years, when the Ukrainians were largely associated with Adolf Hitler's Third Reich in Nazi Germany.

(SALEM) - Ukrainian riot police cracking down on peaceful protestersIn order for US foreign policy to appear justified, feckless American politicians always must assess blame to the proper "bad guy" country. It is the way this world works, and it is, quite frankly, why everyone alive is marching directly toward an entirely avoidable third world war.

According to reports, a mysterious group in the Ukraine is telling Jews they have to register with the government, disclose their property and vehicles, and pay a $50 fine for processing. A memo handed out to Jews exiting a synagogue, says those who fail to comply will be forced to leave the country and forfeit assets.

Say No to Big Money

We’ve already seen the results of Citizens United.  We know what happens when the special interests are left unchecked.  We know what the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove and their deep-pocketed friends can do when they have free reign to spend and spend and spend on political campaigns.

(WASHINGTON DC) - Senator Ron WydenYou’ve heard me say it before: The Supreme Court’s recent decision in McCutcheon v. FEC is another crack in the dam standing between us and unlimited political spending.

The decision eliminates the restrictions on how many campaigns wealthy donors can seek to influence. And let me tell you – it’s a step in the wrong direction.

''Killing George Bush''

This morning's piece on "Mike Palecek & The New American Dream"

(WASHINGTON DC) - George H.W. BushYOU MIGHT HAVE SEEN that George H.W. Bush still lives. That old snake that we saw sneering in the backroom on the night his son was dishonestly named President of The United States. The one who lied that he was out of the loop. The one who ordered the killing of thousands of people in Panama.

The one who ordered the building of many new prisons to get tough on drugs and criminals in America, and it was all a scam, all to get elected, gain power.

Lunar Eclipse Creates Stunning Blood Moon for Sky Gazers

Millions of people around the world were watching the sky late last night, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "blood moon"

(SALEM) - blood moonThe "Blood moon" is a sight only witnessed during a total lunar eclipse, when the Earth spins between the sun and the moon.
The shadow of the Earth catches the refracted light from the sun, and the moon has a reddish, almost copper-color sheen cast upon it.

Though the blood moon was to be most prominent in North and South America, most of the United States was cloud-covered and the spectacle was hidden from view.

I will always wonder what happened to the very sad woman and the happy little guy named Simon.

(OKLAHOMA CITY) - Woman begging in the streetToday, when I was out running errands I saw an older woman and a young boy panhandling on the side of a very busy street. Yes, I admit, it was the young boy that gave me pause.

The woman was holding the boy’s hand and with her other hand was holding up one of those handmade, brown, ragged cardboard box signs. It was written in such a way I could not discern her plea but that didn’t matter.

The Climate Is Invading the Earth!

Ah, but the dark lord of the heat is subtle. He has cells of loyalists among us. They push fossil fuels on us and tell us comforting lies. No longer!

(WASHINGTON DC) - If an alien invader with a face were attacking the earth, the difficulties that governments have getting populations to support wars on other humans would be multiplied a thousand fold.

The most common response to officials calling some petty foreign despot "a new Hitler" would shift from "yeah, right" to "who cares?" The people of the world would unite in common defense against the hostile alien.

Pro-Russian militia groups have seized government buildings and police headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk and Slovyanks--where the shoot-out took place--and despite a Monday morning ultimatum by the Ukrainian government, these groups have shown no sign of giving in.
