Jennifer Ramo worked with Senator Michael Padilla to write state law banning schools from shaming children without ability to pay for meals. An effective approach to poverty requires taking care of short-term needs like food and shelter, with an eye on long-term solutions. Community realities have to inform any policy solutions just as much as legal and economic realities.  New Mexico Appleseed addresses poverty from all of these perspectives.  Jenny Ramo, founder and Executive Director of New Mexico Appleseed spoke about the organization’s work, including the nationally praised “Lunch Shaming Bill” and its work using data to predict and prevent problems associated with poverty.

Water is for Fighting Over and Other Myths About Water in the West: An Exploration of Solutions to the Colorado River Basin’s Water Problems, with John Fleck.

Hosts: Andy Otto, Alan Webber & Bill Dupuy

In conjunction with the Santa Fe Watershed Association, Journey Santa Fe is offering four speakers in May on the subject of WATER  and WATERSHEDS IN NEW MEXICO  and how they relate to our local Santa Fe River watershed.

A science journalist with 30 years of  newspaper  experience, John first wrote about water in the 1980s as a beat reporter covering the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. He is the author of the book Water is for Fighting Over and Other Myths About Water in the West, an exploration of solutions to the Colorado River Basin’s water problems, published by Island Press.

Growing population and a warming climate are placing increasing pressures on the water supplies of the western United States. But contrary to common narratives of crisis, conflict, and looming apocalypse, the region’s communities have been quietly adapting to the changing circumstances. In showing that we can do more with less, and learning to collaborate rather than fight over water, these communities are lighting a path toward a future in which the West can not only survive but thrive in the face of its water supply adversity.

 

As a journalist, including more than two decades’ work at the Albuquerque Journal from 1990 to 2014, John grew to increasingly specialize in the water resource issues so critical in New Mexico and arid Southwest. His water-related writings and newspaper coverage have included important legal decisions as well as legislative activity, and spanned the state of New Mexico, as well as neighboring states, such as Arizona, Colorado and Texas.

Law Professor and Author G. Emlen Hall: “Water Tales from the St. Augustine Plains”

Hosts: Andy Otto, Alan Webber & Bill Dupuy

Santa Fe Watershed Association

The Santa Fe Watershed Association, in conjunction with Journey Santa Fe, is offering four speakers in May on the subject of WATER and WATERSHEDS IN NEW MEXICO  and how they relate to our local Santa Fe River watershed.

 

This talk will discuss the pending application to drill and pump 54,000 acre feet per year from a ranch in the Plains of San Augustine in Catron County near the Very Large Array (VLA). The application proposes to pipe that new water 130 miles up the Rio Grande where it would be offered for sale to water-short municipalities such as Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and others along the way. The municipalities have not committed themselves to the project or to purchasing the water. The so-called “APR project” has caused enormous controversy of all kinds. This talk will analyze the width and depth of that controversy and assess it against the historical, legal, scientific and human background of the APR pipeline proposal.  Em Hall became an emeritus professor of law in 2007. He has focused his research and writing on the history of land and water in the Southwest in general and New Mexico in particular. He has written three books on the topic: Four Leagues of Pecos: A Legal History of the Pecos Grant from 1800 to 1936 (1984); High and Dry: The Texas-New Mexico Struggle for the Pecos River (2002), and Reining in the Rio Grande (with Phillips and Black) (2011). Prior to joining the UNM law faculty in 1983, he spent seven years at the State Engineer’s Office. During his time there, he wrote an administrative history of the Pecos River Compact from its inception in 1949 to 1974. This was the beginning of his research for “High and Dry.”
