Roslyn WA * Movies * TV * and Coal Miners
We visit Roslyn WA to see the famous set of the TV show "Northern Exposure" and much more. Roslyn was founded in the1880's as a coal mining town. Workers from all over Europe and the British Isles came to work in the mines. In 1979 the town was the choice for a Kubrick film starring Dick Van Dyke. Then in the early 1990's the town was the setting for a TV series that was nationally popular and acclaimed. More recently the series "The Man in the High Castle" was filmed there. Today the town still remembers it's colorful past and so do the tourists who arrive there weekly. Situated in the scenic PNW forests of Central WA this town is a must see when traveling down Interstate 90.

Wheelying @Historic Coal Hill #3 ROAR
I was bored. #3 Coal Hill was made in the late 1800's, early 1900's. Back then, it was part of Roslyn, Washington, but after Ronald was established, it became a part of Ronald. My great grandpa contributed to the Roslyn area before there was a Cle Elum, and before the State of Washington was a State of the Union, before it became part of the United States of America. He was a gold and ore miner, and was the Mayor of Roslyn, and one of the first Federal politicians out of Roslyn and Kittitas. He did many other things, including being a member of the fire department, on the board of the Pacific Railroad, and was very involved in the unions.

In 1965 An Unforgettable Warning Was Broadcast For All To Hear: 53 Years Later, It’s Sadly Come True
Subscribe Our YouTube Channel Newzmagazine.com For More Paul Harvey, the news commentator and talk-radio pioneer whose staccato style made him one of the United States’ most familiar voices, reached more than 24 million listeners at the peak of his career. Although he was very accurate on everything he had to say, no one could imagine that his famous words from 53 years ago would become the reality of today. I read this today and thought how relevant it is. The speech was broadcast by legendary ABC Radio commentator Paul Harvey on April 3, 1965. He starts his ‘prophesy’ by saying: If I were the Devil… and then continues discussing issues that are these days ours to face. EVERYBODY should listen to this. Sad to say but Paul Harvey was spot on 53 years ago. ”If I Were the Devil If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree. So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.” To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.” In the ears of the young married I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be “extreme” in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old I would teach to pray — to say after me — “Our father which are in Washington.” Then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull, uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa. I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing, less work. Idle hands usually work for me. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild. I’d designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts and I’d get preachers to say, “She’s right.” Then in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science. If I were Satan I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg And the symbol of Christmas a bottle. If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. Then my police state would force everybody back to work. Then I would separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines and objectors in slave-labor camps. If I were Satan I’d just keep doing what I’m doing and the whole world go to he*ll as sure as the Devil” I use to listen to Paul Harvey with my mom in the 70s. He is very accurate on everything he says. All the things he mentioned 53 years ago are exactly what’s going on NOW! Incredible man, Incredible insight. Share this if you agree. #ComeTrue #53YearsLater #1965 #UnforgettableWarning

050 Hillbilly Eviction: Big Business and the Making of Appalachian Poverty
This week at In The Past Lane, the history podcast, we look at the history of one of the more troubled regions in American history, Appalachia. In particular, we’ll examine the backstory to how Appalachia became one of the poorest places in the US, and why it has stayed poor. I’ll speak with historian Steven Stoll about his new book, Ramp Hollow: The Ordeal of Appalachia. Stoll takes us back in time to when immigrants from northern Europe settled the region and developed an agrarian society that was self-sustaining and based on kinship networks. These backcountry people were the quintessential pioneers of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, clearing land on the frontier, establishing farms, building log cabins, and developing kinship networks that helped them survive. Much of the economy was based on barter and the livelihoods of the people depended on open access to vast tracts of forests (primarily for hunting) they treated as commons. Whiskey made from rye was a key source of cash that allowed them to buy tools, guns, and other finished goods. This was the world of Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. But after the Civil War, this world was upended by the arrival of big business. Lumber companies clear cut most of the forests and the coal companies enticed or forced people off the land, turning them from independent agrarians into dependent coal miners working for wages. This story of the decisions and policies that led to Appalachia’s impoverishment raises important questions about how we think about the sources of poverty and our notions of what capitalism is. And as a consequence, Steven Stoll’s book, Ramp Hollow, offers an important corrective to some of the underlying assumptions found in the bestselling memoir, Hillbilly Elegy, by J. D. Vance. Among the many things discussed in this episode:  The agrarian society that developed in Appalachia before the arrival of big business. Why whiskey became so important to the people of Appalachia and why Hamilton’s tax sparked the Whiskey Rebellion. How after the Civil War, coal mining companies forced the agrarian people of Appalachia off the land and into the mines. How big business brought coal mining -- and poverty -- to Appalachia. How the story of Appalachia reveals the important ways in which Americans misunderstand capitalism. What J. D. Vance’s memoir, Hillbilly Elegy, gets wrong about Appalachia.

American History - Part 171 - Hoover - Great Depression -  America Lives in fear
Please excuse the ads..price for including copyrighted music in video Welcome to THE MAKING OF A NATION-- American history in VOA Special English. I'm Barbara Klein. And I'm Steve Ember. The stock market crash of 1929 marked the beginning of the worst economic crisis in American history. 1,000,000s of people lost their jobs. 1000s lost their homes. During the next several years, a large part of the richest nation on earth learned what it meant to be poor. Workers lost their jobs as factories closed. Business owners lost their stores and sometimes their homes. Farmers lost their land as they struggled with falling prices and natural disasters. And Americans were not the only ones who suffered. This week in our series, we talk about the economic crisis that became the Great Depression. One of America's greatest writers, John Steinbeck, described the depression this way: "It was a terrible, troubled time. I can't think of any 10 years in history when so much happened in so many directions. Violent change took place. Our country was shaped, our lives changed, our government rebuilt." Steinbeck, winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize in literature, said: "When the market fell, the factories, mines, and steelworks closed and then no one could buy anything, not even food." Unemployment rose sharply. The number of workers looking for a job jumped from 3 percent to more than !25% in just 4 years. 1 of every 3 or 4 workers was looking for a job in 1932. Falling production. Rising unemployment. Men begging in the streets. But there was more to the Great Depression. At that time, the federal government did not guarantee the money that people put in banks. When people could not repay loans, banks began to close. In 1929, 659 banks with total holdings of $250,000,000 went out of business. The next year, 2 times that number failed. And the year after that, almost twice that number of banks went out of business. 1,000,000s of persons lost all their savings. They had no money left. The depression caused serious public health problems. Hospitals across the country were filled with sick people whose main illness was a lack of food. The health department in New York City found that 1 of every 5 of the city's children did not get enough food. !99% of the children attending a school in a coal-mining area of the country reportedly were underweight. In some places, people died of hunger. The quality of housing also fell. Families were forced to crowd into small houses or apartments to share costs. Many people had no homes at all. They slept on public streets, buses or trains. One official in Chicago reported in 1931 that several hundred women without homes were sleeping in city parks. In a number of cities, people without homes built their houses from whatever materials they could find. They used empty boxes or pieces of metal to build shelters in open areas. People called these areas of little temporary houses "Hoovervilles." They blamed President Hoover for their situation. So, too, did the men forced to sleep in public parks at night. They covered themselves with pieces of paper. And they called the paper "Hoover blankets." People without money in their pants called their empty pockets "Hoover flags." People blamed President Hoover because they thought he was not doing enough to help them. Hoover did take several actions to try to improve the economy. But he resisted proposals for the federal government to provide aid in a major way. And he refused to let the government spend more money than it earned. Hoover told the nation: "Economic depression cannot be cured by legislative action or executive decision." Many conservative Americans agreed with him. But not the 1,000,000s of Americans who were hungry and tired of looking for a job. They accused Hoover of not caring about common citizens. One congressman from Alabama said: "In the White House, we have a man more interested in the money of the rich than in the stomachs of the poor." On and on the Great Depression continued. Of course, some Americans were lucky. They kept their jobs. And they had enough money to enjoy the lower prices of most goods. Many people shared their earnings with friends in need. Other Americans reacted to the crisis by leading protests against the economic policies of the Hoover administration. In 1932, a large group of former soldiers gathered in Washington to demand help. More than 8000 of them built the nation's largest Hooverville near the White House. Federal troops finally removed them by force and burned their shelters. Next week, we will look at how the Great Depression of the 1930s affected other countries.

"No National School Board" Television Advertisement
Lamar Alexander's re-election campaign has announced a new statewide television ad that shows him pushing back against the Obama administration acting like a de facto "national school board." The ad, which will begin airing Sunday, July 20, starts with Alexander saying that as governor he worked with President Ronald Reagan to get Washington out of local schools, and that now he's fighting to stop President Obama from exerting more control. Alexander says, "Washington just can't keep its sticky fingers off our public schools. That's why I'm fighting to send those decisions back to states, back to parents where they belong."

Native American Tribe Protests Keystone Vote
A Senate vote to approve the Keystone XL pipeline Tuesday took an odd turn after Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., read the final vote tally as protestors of the pipeline in the Senate Gallery burst into song. Capitol Police officers dragged out five protestors, including Greg Grey Cloud of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe as he bellowed a tribal song. Grey Cloud, who wore a headdress, continued singing as he was knocked to the floor and pulled to the wall of the hallway. Protesters were handcuffed with plastic zip-ties while standing shoulder-to-shoulder, facing the wall. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Drew Willson arrived on the scene as doorkeepers and police officers tried to direct the crowd away from the protesters. In response to the Nov. 14 House vote to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline, Rosebud Sioux Tribe President Cyril Scott announced that the tribe recognized the action as an act of war.

DOGM JOHN MARINONI Oral History Interview
Name of Informant: GIOVANNI (JOHN) MARINONI Age at Time of Interview: 100 years old Name of Mines and Dates Worked: MAPLE CREEK MINE, Carbon County, 1931-1934 SOLDIER CREEK MINE, Carbon County, 1945-1974 Summary of Interview: John's first experience with mining occurred at the Maple Creek Mine west of Helper, Utah. The coal mine was owned by Greek-Americans and 12-year old John was an Italian immigrant. After a break from mining during World War II, when John worked as a welder in the naval shipyard at Bremerton, Washington, he returned to Carbon County in 1945 to help his father and brothers at the Soldier Creek Mine. They jointly operated until 1957 when John and his brothers bought out their father and ran the mine under the name Premium Coal Company. John's mining career ended in 1974 when they sold the mine. By his admission, John did not excel at digging coal, but he was good with equipment and solving mechanical problems. The interview emphasizes learning to mine and John's efforts to improve mine processes, and provides a few stories of his experiences.
