12/9/17 Dolan Springs Craft Show (pictures)

Below are pictures of some of the many vendors and their crafts / goods at the Dolan Springs craft show today.  If you are a Dolan Springs or Meadview artist or crafter, you are welcome to post about your creations, pictures and contact info at the new forum.

I’ll add some of our local talent “as time permits” and I’ve been incredibly busy.  My visitors often want to buy their souvenirs from LOCALS.   If you post pics, prices and contact info, you might just get a call or email.   And if you’re going to a local event, you can post where you’ll be and what you’ll bring.

Is supervisor Lois Wakimoto pro life or pro GMO, pollution, sickness and death?

My email to supervisor Wakimoto:

Dear Supervisor Wakimoto,

I’m fighting for the health and lives of the American people and I was not happy to see you appointed to the BOS as I’m very aware of the Wakimoto GMO farming and pollution of our food supply, drinking water and air with cancer and all sorts of illness causing pesticides and herbicides. I’ve publicly expressed my frustration with your appointment and today Steven Robinson wrote at https://www.facebook.com/groups/640301882835314/permalink/711038822428286/:

> Lois is divorced from the Wakimoto Family Farm. That’s a cheap shot

I would LOVE to apologize to you and call you an ally in my fight for clean food, air and water.

I had read your BOS bio and it looks like you have been very active in farming and lobbying. Which side are you on?

Sincerely,

Christine Baker
