    Valley Shine Interview August 22, 2015

    in Music

    Valley Shine was distilled from a love of whiskey, cats and bluegrass music. In early 2014, Jenna Blake was in search of a writing partner with an appreciation for folk music who shared her passion for songwriting. Hailing from Louisville, KY, Jenna was influenced by traditional bluegrass music and roots rock like CCR, CSNY and Joni Mitchell. By a sheer stroke of luck, Jenna discovered Sam Sobelman and the two met up to see if there was any musical chemistry. After a couple of writing sessions influenced by whisky, laughs and some banjo pluckin', they quickly discovered their songwriting styles were a perfect match.

    There is a valley into which the true watchmen must go, a valley where the shadows of death rise high.  But beyond those shadows, light dicloses a vision.  Here in the valley of vision, there is truth to be obtained and a message that must be delivered to THIS generation.  Watchmen, are you ready to go into and transform the Valley of Vision into a Valley of Decision?

    BENNY J ANDRÉS, Ph.D., UNCC & author, "Power and Control in the Imperial Valley"

    in Business

    The book by Dr. Andrés "Power and Control in the Imperial Valley" examines the evolution of irrigated farming in the Imperial-Mexicali Valley, an arid desert straddling the California–Baja California border. Bisected by the international boundary line, the valley drew American investors determined to harness the nearby Colorado River to irrigate a million acres on both sides of the border. The “conquest” of the environment was a central theme in the history of the valley.


    Colonization in the valley began with the construction of a sixty-mile aqueduct from the Colorado River in California through Mexico. Initially, Mexico held authority over water delivery until settlers persuaded Congress to construct the All-American Canal. Control over land and water formed the basis of commercial agriculture and in turn enabled growers to use the state to procure inexpensive, plentiful immigrant workers.


    Benny Andrés is an Associate Professor of History and Latin American Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he teaches courses on Latino history, the American West, the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, U.S. immigration during the Progressive Era, U.S. Food history, and a graduate seminar in modern U.S. history. His research and publications examine transmigration, race relations and environmental issues along the California borderlands during the twentieth century.


    Dr. Andrés is a long-time member of the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the Western History Association, and the American Society of Environmental History. His professional work includes serving on the Alice Hamilton Prize Committee (for best article in environmental history published outside of the journal Environmental History) from 2015 to 2016.
