Invasion of the Hedge Fund Almonds 12.1.2015 Mother Jones
By Tom Philpott | Mon Jan. 12, 2015 6:00 AM ET On a sunbaked August morning, off a rural road in the heart of California's Central Valley, a low-slung tractor rumbles between neat rows of identical, light-green trees. To its right, a plume of dust billows up, thick enough to blot out the sky above the treetops. A chute on the truck sends a steady stream of almonds flying into the trailer hitched behind. Sweating as I skitter around to avoid the moving tractor, I'm witnessing what has emerged as one of the Central Valley's most lucrative rituals : the almond harvest. Here in western Fresno County, which generates more than a fifth of California's almonds, production has more than doubled since 2005. Almonds are now nearly as valuable as the state's vaunted grape harvest. Learn more about photographer Matt Black's project documenting the communities affected by the California drought. Another truck has already been through the orchard, armed with a giant metal forceps that grabs each tree trunk and shakes ...

Broken water pipe temporarily puts popular downtown sushi restaurant out of business 6.1.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Minutes after the pipe burst and water started raining down at a devastating rate of 17 gallons a second on Friday night, the community sprung into action to help save a flooded sushi restaurant on Yampa Street. Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue quickly stopped the surge of water that made it out the front door and forced diners at Sake2U to evacuate. Steamboat Flood Suckers arrived shortly after that to start cleaning up. The mother of the restaurant's owners, in her 70s, came to help wash dishes and wade through the debris. And neighboring restaurants and local electricians like Aspen Electric started calling and offering their help. "We get a lot of community support in this small town," co-owner Kier Delaney said Monday. "In all the trauma of this, that's one part that's been really positive." The burst pipe and the ensuing flood damage will keep Sake2U from reopening for several weeks. Delaney said the restaurant will have to stay closed for at least a month because of the extensive damage caused by the ...
