Wildfires may be just a newsflash on Long Island where the cool fall air does not signal a water shortage. But these are perhaps the two most significant issues of the American Southwest. Water is the most ignored at-risk commodity in the artificially lush Los Angeles area that has literally made water run uphill as it carelessly drained the water recourses of the state. In parallel, the recent rash of suspicious fires is a scary reminder of the death and destruction that sears through the region each year. The tinderbox of homes and trees are clearly at the mercy of nature and sociopathic arsonists testing skill and daring of the first responders…. the thin line of defense against wildfires.
About the Book: Tunnel Visions
Working 5 miles inside a water tunnel in 1971, Willie Carter was one of 17 men killed in a methane explosion. The ensuing underground fire burned for two days before Los Angeles firefighters could attempt a rescue in what became known in California as the Sylmar Tunnel disaster.
Tunnel Visions, a work of “faction,” blends fact and fiction, weaving together the historical facts of the Sylmar disaster, the current struggle for control over California's diminishing water supply, and a fictional plot to attack Los Angeles' water delivery system.
Tunnel Visions occurs on a single day, during which Nick and Cindi experience a series of harrowing events as they attempt to stop an act of eco terrorism.
Kurt Kamm’s expertise in the parallel issues of water and fire educates his readers in the telling of a fictional story laced in facts … providing a deeper understanding of the men and women across the country who fight the fires … and the politics. au

David back this Thursday with Part Two
Thank You David - IMPORTANT issue - that of ..................... Jihad at our Southern UNSECURED border
David and Ruthie will discuss many aspects - information YOU SHOULD KNOW!!
David is a US Army veteran, former instructor in Middle East Studies with operational experience in Bosnia, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Pakistan and Afghanistan. He is currently a member of the Texas Border Volunteer
As I previously asked in PART ONE: With the current violence and threats we are witnessing around the globe... What could possibly be a reason for NOT SECURING OUR BORDERS AND PORTS???
Why is our southern border unsecured to the point - children can enter illegally and if children are able to enter at will -common sense would lead one to believe terrorist could!!! - Ruthie
And now the rest of the story. I was born in Pine Bluff, AK, raised in Monroe, LA and matured in San Francisco, CA. (Yes. I'm an old school hippie).
I'm also one of those fortunate people who has been able to combine my personal passion with professional work. As Director of Development for Diversity and Outreach at the University of California, San Francisco my responsibility was to help increase diversity in the fund raising profession.
I believe God has always had his hands on me and skillfully guided me through the trials and tribulations of life to get me where He wanted me to be, doing the work He has for me.
In the early 90's I developed an unbelievable thirst for the Word that I have to this day. I began taking classes, attending Christian conventions and workshops.
Rev. Frierson and I moved to Corinth, TX in April 2007 and joined Antioch Christian Fellowship in July 2007, and "are members in good standing" (I just like saying that). I currently serve with a variety of Ministries.
I am very active in the community. Volunteer, loves to travel recently visiting New Zealand & Australia. Later this year I will travel to Israel (where Jesus walked.
In summary, it is my prayer that I have an impact upon others that outlasts my lifespan on this earth. I want to leave a legacy based on biblical principles, a spiritual inheritance that will affect the lives of others for all eternity. Passing on to the next generations a legacy with eternal value is far more important to me than a temporal inheritance of money and property.
Advice Ladies: Whatever you do, do with integrity; whomever you serve, serve with caring; wherever you go, go as a leader; whenever you dream, dream with your all; and never, ever give up.
