Subject: FARMS OR FISH?

A SATURDAY FOOD CHAIN RELEASE FROM METROFARM.COM

The United States Department of the Interior has turned off water to
1,200 Klamath River basin farmers in order to protect sucker fish, thus proving
up Mark Twain's contention that "Whiskey is for drinkin, and water is for fightin!"

This Saturday morning at 9am Pacific on AM 1080 KSCO and AM 1340 KOMY, the Saturday Food Chain with Michael Olson will host Klamath Basin farmer John Crawford and U.S. Department of the Interior representative Jeff McCracken for a conversation about their fight for water.

Topics will include a brief look at how the Klamath irrigation project has provided water to area farmers for 94 years; why the government has elected to take this water away from farmers in order to protect sucker fish in Tule Lake; and what kind of precedent this action will establish for
agriculture throughout the United States.

Listeners are invited to call the live program with questions and comments
at 831-479-1080 or 831-477-1340. If you are unable to listen to the California radio stations YOU CAN LISTEN to the Saturday Food Chain streamed live or recorded as an archive whenever and wherever you want by logging on the radio page at http://www.metrofarm.com.
