A fast-paced locked-room mystery in Utah’s awe-inspiring canyon lands provides thrills and spills in book 3 of the bestselling RM Outdoor Adventures series.
River guide Mandy Tanner and her fiancé Rob Juarez, owners of RM Outdoor Adventures, are leading an off-season rafting and climbing trip on the Colorado River. The unfamiliar topography and a lecherous local climbing guide have Mandy on edge — but that’s nothing compared to the trouble the clients bring. When a young man is found dead, everyone on the trip is a suspect. Since there’s no way out of the Colorado River’s steep canyons, it’s up to Mandy and Rob to solve the mystery before the murderer strikes again.
Beth Groundwater writes two mystery series, the Claire Hanover gift basket designer series and the Rocky Mountain Outdoor Adventures series starring whitewater river ranger Mandy Tanner. The first book in her Claire Hanover series, A REAL BASKET CASE, was released in hardcover in 2007 and re-released in trade paperback and ebook in November, 2011. The book garnered good reviews from Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and other national reviewers and was nominated for the 2007 Best First Novel Agatha Award. The second book, TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET, was released in hardcover in 2009, also to good reviews, and was re-released in trade paperback and ebook in November, 2012. The third book, A BASKET OF TROUBLE, will be released in November, 2013.
In June, 2011, she was the parade VIP for the First in Boating on the Arkansas River (FIBArk) whitewater festival in Salida, Colorado, which is featured in DEADLY CURRENTS. Beth lives in Colorado and enjoys its many outdoor activities, including skiing and whitewater rafting.
It may be a new year, but it's the same fight as far as fractivists are concerned. What can we expect in 2015 with oil prices hitting record lows and data that documents unprecedented levels of spills and groundwater contamination? Are frackers going to make money no matter what happens to their businesses, local roads and living conditions, water resources and the environment? When they lose money or go out of business, who ensures the safety of the well pads and equipment they leave behind?
Talkupy with Annie Lindstrom welcomes Shane Davis, aka Fractivist, back to the show to answer these questions and continue our discussion on what fracking is doing to our environment, our economy and our way of life. Join us live on Thursday January 22 at 11 a.m . ET, or via archive using this same link after the show.

On Tuesday December 16th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, we are excited to be welcoming Dave Foster, Executive Director of the ACCA, to Natures Talk Show to discuss cave conservation. We will learn some fascinating details of cave ecosystems and groundwater issues. There are amazing animals and plants that have evolved in cave conditions. Created on An Ecological Mandate
ACCA is concerned with all caves, regardless of their mode of origin or location. However, most caves are found in the earth's more water-soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, marble and gypsum. The lands in which these types of caves are found are called karst or karstlands.
In karst, there is appreciable groundwater movement through dissolved-out openings in the bedrock; karstlands often have features such as sinkholes, sinking streams, springs, and sometimes caves.
Approximately 20% of the United States is karst. In karst, the surface and the subsurface are intimately connected; cave and groundwater resources cannot be widely used without careful land use of the surface. Simply put, clean caves and karst equal clean water.
Beth Groundwater and Kathi Macias stop by to discuss their many novels.
The first book in Beth's new Rocky Mountain Outdoor Adventures mystery series starring Mandy Tanner, a whitewater river ranger, to be released March 1, 2011. When Mandy rescues a man who fell out of a raft on the upper Arkansas River in Colorado and he dies on the river bank, she feels driven to find out what—or who—killed him.
Fukushima nuclear disaster has hit the US – are radiation levels underestimated? Jhoane Robinson joins Joe to discuss.
Although news programs don’t report it and our leaders in government don’t publicly discuss it, we live in a world that is becoming a little more radioactive every day:
Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, damaged by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, was leaking 400 tons of radioactive groundwater into the Pacific Ocean each day. Operators of the power plant have recently stated that the groundwater is within legal safety limits.

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

The film follows a proposed uranium mill in southwestern Colorado—the first to be built in the U.S. in 30 years—and the emotional debate pitting a population desperate for jobs and financial stability against an environmental group based in nearby a resort town. Without judgement, both sides of the issue are brought to life in heart-wrenching de- tail as the film follows conflicting opinions and visions for the future.
What do you do when your community is dying from lack of funds...is it worth dying from a cancer-causing uranium mill? What is the cost of life in these United States?

From the film:
"I want them to understand that there's people here."
"yeah, but I don't think they care about us people. I mean there's no compromise--they don't care about us!"
"Nuclear Power was supposed to be our future. Al lot of this town is here because of Union Carbide and then when they left we're still here! They're long gone now "
"If you're only hearing the piece about jobs, you're not protecting the community. I dare you do better"
"The people complaining the most are driving to the protest in their Mercedes. You can only kick a dog so many times and pretty soon he's going to turn around and bite you."
"I have pulmonary fibrosis"
"I lost a father and two brothers from lung cancer. They all worked in the mines. My dad and my younger brother both died at the age of 48, but the way I feel it was...their time to go."
Ground Water Awareness Week is sponsored by the National Ground Water Association — the nation's leading authority on the use and protection of groundwater.
According to the association, 98% of our drinking water comes from underground sources. This is why we need to protect it...I say WE, because the government isn't doing it's job, as stated in the U.S. Constitution!
In Southern California, we cannot rely on our groundwater any longer due to two very dangerous contaminants that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) doesn't even recognize as a groundwater pollutant!
Case in point: Hinkley, California.
We're back in the news again because PG&E has NOT cleaned up their mess and the local water board, headed up by a bankrupt state and the Regional Water Quality Control Board, now taking over for the EPA, can do nothing but levy fines...BIG WHOOP!
So what can WE do?
Today, I welcome Jane Griffin, President of The Groundwater Foundation, located in Nebraska and home to the largest aquifer in the world.
The foundation's mission is to educate and inspire action, and we hope to do just that on today's edition of The Green Revolution Show.
