Round Two, LaMalfa and Constituents, Live on KVMR Monday Night

It's round two, live (well, nearly) on KVMR.

We'll bring you the latest Congressional Town Hall with Republican Rep. Doug LaMalfa this Monday night at 8pm, recorded earlier that evening in Oroville.

LaMalfa will likely talk about the Oroville Dam situation and the massive 190,000 person evacuation that took place because of fears the dam would fail.

He'll also likely take questions and comments from constituents at this session at the historic Oroville State Theater.


A pair of Town Hall Meetings will be broadcast live from the Nevada Theatre, downtown Nevada City and just one elevator stop from KVMR, Monday and Tuesday (April 17-18) 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Monday features the Nevada County Cannabis Alliance welcoming Amber Morris, state branch chief of the Cal Cannabis Licensing Branch and a key state official in the aftermath of California's vote to legalize recreational marijuana.

For the first time in history, the state of California is partnering with cultivators statewide to roll lout a set of monumental changes to regulations that will turn cannabis growers into legitimate business owners. The new regulations will also address patients rights to cultivate and personal use.

Joining the discussion are Hezekiah Allen, California Growers Association executive director, with cultivation policy updates, as well as Tawnie Logan, Sonoma County  Growers Alliance executive director, discussing how Sonoma growers organized to pass a robust cultivation ordinance.


The impact of children's dependency on cellphones, tablets and computers will bring together both national experts and concerned locals in a Town Hall being presented  and broadcast live by KVMR 89.5 FM.

It'll take place Tuesday at 6 p.m., also at the Nevada Theatre, and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Nevada City with assistance from Yuba River Charter School.

Special guest is mental health counselor George T. Lynn, co-author of the book "Breaking The Trance," regarding the use and abuse of media and screens in American  culture.

Because of the two Town Halls, the news show Democracy Now! will air earlier each day -- 9 a.m. Monday, Noon Tuesday -- and will be available to stream online at kvmr.org
