PA dairy farm families' cows produce Testing Shows Water From Local Roadside Springs Contaminated September 24th, Two popular roadside springs in the Coudersport area and others near Emporium and Port Allegany have been tested as not safe for human consumption, but people continue to drink the water.
Extensive testing of the four springs by Penn State Extension showed coliform bacteria. Many locals use the springs as a source of drinking water and routinely fill jugs for personal use. They are: The Rigas Spring off Rt. No E coli was detected. The spring has a built-in drinking fountain. The spring has a distribution network feeding a handful of homes. Railroad Avenue Second Switchback spring in Cameron County, with a coliform level of ppm, as well as an E coli level of two.
Route 6 Spring, east of Port Allegany, was found to have a coliform level of ppm and an E coli level of one. Coliform is considered an unhealthy contaminant of drinking water.

The Class of '64!The first thing that caught my eye was the "as told by" part of the title. There are a lot of books published by non-Native writers There's some excellent critical discussion of that kind of book. Second thing is the word "legend" in the title. People of any given faith don't call their traditional or creation stories legends.
Native peoples don't do that either. Using 'legend' for a Native story is, for me, a red flag. I got a copy of the book from Net Galley. I looked at the table of contents for a page of background information and found the author's note.
But, it isn't a typical author's note. Instead, it is a letter to Steve Fobister. I wondered if Nordgren had sent the actual letter to Fobister, or if the letter in the book is the means by which Fobister will know that he figures prominently in Anung's Journey. The letter has several more red flags. Here's the opening: Dear Steve, When you told me the story of Anung I was immediately captured by the magic of it.
When you asked me to popularize it, I was honored by your request. Where I have added to it, your magic has guided me. I see that sort of thing a lot, too. Native people asking a white person to tell our stories. No--let me rephrase that. White people telling readers that a Native person asked them to tell this or that story. Invariably, that white author has spent some time with a Native community and finds us, well, as Nordgren says, "magical.
He goes on to talk about how, when the two went fishing for the first time in 40 years, Steve told Nordgren the story of Anung: You asked me to do my best to turn this legend into a full story that would delight and inform people of all ages and all cultures, and I promised you I would. I promised to work to get it published. And I promised that if Anung was published and widely read that, along with accomplishing your goals and fulfilling my promise, I would invest a share of the financial success back into the health of Grassy Narrows.
That is another red flag Are you wondering about the story? Well here it is in a nutshell.This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played.
We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions. Sep 19, Nose Flute on the Bellowphone! Found by our friend and high class guitarist-ukulelist Herman Vandecauterthe video of this incredible instrument, the Majestic Bellowphone.
In this video, its inventor, Mr. Leonard Solomon see this articleplays the Hungarian Dance by Johannes Brahms, and whistles some notes on a purple Humanatone: at 0'51 and at 1' Sep 18, The Amazing Nose Flute.
It was a little box containing a nose flute, a small book, 4 cards and a card holder, well designed with funny graphics. The graphics design is pleasantThe nose flute itself is a simple Humanatone by Trophy Music, packed in its regular blister and so, no need to say more about it. The four cards are supposed to work as basic music sheets, with staff and notes on one side, and the song lyrics on the other.

Here is a video by a Thai musician, Worreapuek. The original song is from a Thai family band named Footpathband here is the original version. Worreapuek plays the guitar and sings very well, although there's still a good room for improving the nose flute part starting at 1'58, but mainly played from 3'20 and 5' The presentation of the nose flute, at the beginning of the video, is very interesting.
This very clever idea could be used for designing a nosey nose flute, at the same time with a funny human face and easily held on stage a mix of this Thai flute and the Mosurin's one And the video:. We previously posted an article about the advertisement campaign that the Johnson Smith Co. But during those years, the Johnson Smith company was not the only novelty mail-order company to advertise for the Humanatone. Indeed, I found 3 other competitors selling the tin nose flute through Popular Mechanics.
