No Pebble Mine! Pebble asks EPA to 'stop the madness' of potential veto by Manuel Quiñones

Below is the second of two recent articles that reflect the continuing resolve of the Pebble Limited Partnership – that is, Northern Dynasty Minerals. Their new CEO – a DC lawyer named Tom Collier – has been doing the rounds in DC, arguing in the strongest terms that the Pebble Mine is a good project, that the environmental community is conspiring illegally with EPA, that EPA is an out-of-control agency for responding to the request of Bristol Bay residents for help, and that new funding for the project is imminent.

Obviously, we have a different view – see below. I was in DC recently myself with a long list of Pebble Mine meetings on the Hill and with EPA. These articles demonstrate how important it is not to let up – and we won’t.

The Secret Of Muhammad Ali: Al Satterwhite’s Photography Book ProfilesThe Return Of Ali In 1970


Published In The Sportsfan Journal, Tuesday, May 20, 2014

At only 26 years old, Al Satterwhite won the boxing lottery. He picked up the phone and was told that Time Magazine wanted to send him out the 5th Street Gym to cover Muhammad Ali as he trained for his first fight in over three years. It was 1970. Satterwhite would shadow the living legend from his comeback fight against Jerry Quarry in Atlanta through the biggest heavyweight fight of all time Ali-Frazier I. Now Satterwhite is allowing us a never before seen glimpse into that time, with his forthcoming fine art photography book, “The Secret of Muhammad Ali.”

Venice Art Walk 2014 - Los Angeles


The weekend of May 17-18 is a BIG fundraising effort for both Crossroads School (where my children go) and for the Venice Family Clinic and their legendary annual ARTWALK. Yesterday I posted the auction image and information about Crossroads, but that is an event for the school only, not the general public.

On Sunday the 18th, however, the ARTWALK event is VERY public so come enjoy the MANY things that are going on.
