(Intro & Bio) - RIGHT From RUSS© with Russ Waymire :
RIGHT from RUSS © with Russ Waymire Brief Bio & Intro : Our family has farmed in the Central Valley since 1976. We have farmed row crops in Kings County, pistachios in Kern County and Madera County. Since water is the lifeblood of Farms and Cities located in the Southern San Joaquin Valley I have been involved in water issues. I have co-chaired our local Farm Bureau Water Committee and have attended numerous water meetings with politicians and Natural Resource Agencies in California and Washington D.C. In 2009 I was honored to be chosen as Agriculturalist of the Year for Kings County.

(Apr 03 2016) - What's Gone Wrong With the Water Projects ?
HANFORD, CA -- My ancestors, like many midwest 1930s Dust Bowl casualties, migrated to Californias Central Valley. Why settle here? Because the (CVP) Central Valley Water Projects created all kinds of Valley jobs and opportunities. Whats gone wrong? Politicians passed laws seizing CVP Friant & Westside contract water, turning the Central Valley into a Politician Created Dust Bowl. Politicians force us to pay for water delivery systems and for water not received.

(Dec 17 2014) - Is Sleep Deprivation is Torture ?
HANFORD, CA -- If sleep deprivation is Torture as U.S Senator Diane Feinstein claims, then surely denying water to people pleading for water to sustain life, jobs and communities is Torture ? Are Farmworkers, farmers, home owners and Cities in the south Valley being targeted and Tortured by powerful politicians who pass and support Legislation successfully stealing their valley water resources to benefit the areas they favor? Over four million acres of valley land including valley cities is the collateral for the construction and repayment of the water systems serving the valley and other regions of the state.

(Apr 18 2013) - Valley Water Allocations Cut Again
HANFORD, CA -- Now we learn that Federal officials as of 4-17-13 have again cut scheduled Friant Class One Water Deliveries to 50% for the Friant Water System that supplies Water to 15,000 Valley Eastside Growers. Federal Officials are flushing 170,000 acre feet of Friant Water down River for environmental purposes. Other Central Valley Water Districts have also seen their Water allocations cut - again ...

(Nov 30 2012) - Mexico selling water
HANFORD, CA -- Will Mexico sell some of its Colorado River Water to Los Angeles? A far-reaching agreement between the United States and Mexico will give Mexico rights to store some of its Colorado River water in Lake Mead, a lake that stretches across Nevada and Arizona. Does this increase Mexico's water storage capacity or does it allow Los Angeles and other cities to exploit the Mexican people along with Imperial Valley Farmers in the United States?

(Jul 10 2012) - Those Unscrupulous Politicians ...
HANFORD, CA -- My last column discussed the need and innovative thinking that went into the development of the Friant Dam on the San Joaquin River to prevent flooding, generate electricity and store water for the Friant-Kern canal water system serving valley farms and cities. From Chowchilla to Southern Kern County, including Fresno, Fresno County, and Farms and Cities in Tulare and Kern Counties, the Friant water system has delivered water to these Counties and cities all along the eastside of the valley for over 50 years ...

(Mar 16 2012) - A Little History About Our Water
HANFORD, CA -- In the late 1920's and early 1930's California's shortage of developed water became real apparent on the Eastside of the San Joaquin Valley as many water wells went completely dry. As water wells, farms and jobs dried up on the valley's Eastside, farmers, Landowners and cities knew they needed a more reliable water source to survive and an innovative idea was hatched. The new idea was to divert Water from the San Joaquin River for use on the Valleys Eastside by constructing Friant Dam and the Friant Kern and Madera Canals.

(Mar 02 2012) - Are we Winning or Losing the Water War ?
HANFORD, CA -- Are we winning or losing the Battle for our Valley's "Water" and JOBS? The Good news Congressman Devin Nunes has sponsored Water Legislation HR 1837 that would resolve the Water Crisis at its root. We in the Ag community really thank all our urban neighbors for participating in the Water Marches and placing signs on their properties. Both actions illustrated the seriousness of the Valley Water Crisis to those driving through the Valley and to the national and international news organizations. The Bad news is, the FACT of losing water and Jobs really hit us in the face again last year even when 2011 was a flood year.
