Saturday April 9, 2005

Folk Plus airs Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on WJFF, Jeffersonville,

Water and Floods. We are HYDRO POWERED radio and
WJFF is streaming live at

Last week our movie night was cancelled - That wasn't all that was cancelled.

The creek in the village here, jumped it's banks and a third of main street was submurged. The Delaware peeked at over 4 feet higher than it did last fall for hurricane Ivan. Picnic Tables and Campers were taken down river and placed randomly on banks. The Roscoe Library had two feet high water mark on the outside of the building. The Brisco lake damn is gone, waters rose over the bridge to the livingston manor school. Holdiay mtn ski shop 200,000 damage to the ski shop alone. The rest of the areas go carts, arcade,  snow making machines,etc, totally over 2 million in damages. Damage estimates reach 80 million in our region according to the TImes Herald Record, with Sullivan county at over 19 million estimated currently.

Local firemen have spent a week working with floods not fires. Congressman Hinchey and Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther and Bonasac all have asked Pataki to declare the region a national emergency. SULLIVAN County contains a portion of 4 watersheds: East Branch Delaware, Middle Delaware-Mongaup-Brodhead, Rondout, Upper Delaware.

Todays Folk Plus involves water and floods. I subbed for Maris last Thursday night and ran a "dry run" of this show. So here again, floods and water songs.
Thanks to dj recommendations, especially KDHX's Paul Stamler in St. Louis, Missouri who sent MP3s, and locally to John Bachman, John Webber, John Sincok and Jonathon Mernit for loaning or sending songs.

We should no longer accept the counsel of those who tell us that we must fill our world with poisonous chemicals, we
should look around and see what other course is open to us."        Rachel Carson
Thanks to all well wishers with my curret battle withneurotoxic poisoning and chemical sensitivities
and welcome to new listeners on the web.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
