Bee coverage of Grey Davis
is off color
Soon after the November election,
the Fresno Bee runs a story on the 30-person transition committee
appointed by Governor-Elect Grey Davis to help him fill on his
appointed jobs. The Bee did not list the 30 names. It cited only
a handful of San Joaquin Valley selections headed by rich Republican
John Harris a large farmer. Plus a few legislators. When Elfie
read this story, he opined, Looks like the same old political
game - cutting out the poor and liberals... However, a few days
later he got an e-mail from the United Farm Workers Union reporting
that their president, Artie Rodriguez, was one of the 30 appointees...
How come the
Bee overlooked the union¿?
Buy A Bale A Month Club
As reported in our e-mail message of October 12, member Vic
Bedoian has organized a Buy A Bale A Month Club. Each club member
pledges to donate to SunMt $5 a month to buy, truck and store
a bale of straw for Baby SunHouse, SunMt's demonstration passive
solar straw bale-adobe dwelling. Purpose to develop engineering
data so that straw bale construction can become a part of the
regular building. The club will live until the project is fully
financed. You can join by sending in your first $5.
This chronicle is transformed most every Monday.
