Hart Family deaths in Mendocino, California

 

Family of Eight found dead at bottom of cliff in the Pacific Ocean, Mendocino County, CA.

Tragedy has struck and taken the lives of a family of eight travelling through Mendocino County, California on Monday, March 26, 2018. Although, only five bodies have been recovered, the three missing children are presumed dead, according to the local authorities on the scene. “The adult women, identified as Sarah and Jennifer Hart of Woodland, Wash, were found in the 2003 GMC Yukon, while three of their children were found outside of the vehicle.”

“According to the Associated Press, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman believes that all six children were inside the vehicle when it went off the cliff, likely killing the entire family”. https://www.inquisitr.com/4845900/jennifer-and-sarah-hart-devonte-harts-homeschooling-parents-werent-feeding-them-had-cps-pre-deaths-visit/ It is a sad day for America, when something happens, ending six young lives.

Sarah Margaret Hart and Jennifer Jean Hart were a married couple, who had adopted six children and were living as a family in Woodland, Washington. The mothers are reported as the same age, being either 38 or 39. The children are: Markis Hart, 19; Jeremiah Hart, 14; Abigail Hart, and missing but presumed dead, Hannah Hart, 16; Devonte Hart, 15; Sierra Hart, 12. They are a mixed, multi-racial family unit and have suffered the brunt of death threats for their lifestyle.

The Harts were known for embarking on many spontaneous road trips. They were involved with social justice causes with the whole family attending a diversity of activist events, including many Bernie Sanders campaign rallies. They were affectionately called, The Hart tribe; “a free-spirited family of two women and their six adopted children who raised their own food, took spontaneous road trips and traveled to festivals and other events, offering free hugs and promoting unity”. https://apnews.com/1d89be2d0d6c4dd69eabbabf94a1bf59

It is from their involvement in activism that the public would already know about them. A viral photo was circulating around the internet, during the time of the 2014 “Black Lives Matter” protests in Ferguson, Missouri. That emotionally-touching photo featured one of the children, Devonte Hart (aged 12 at the time), hugging a “white” police officer.

The sighting of the wrecked SUV was called in by a passerby on the Pacific Coast highway (Route 1) at 3:40 p.m, an indeterminate amount of time after the accident occured. https://usa-newnews.com/2018/03/29/jennifer-sarah-hart-5-fast-facts-you-need-to-know/ No other witnesses have come forward, who may have been there at the desolate stretch of highway. Investigators are unable to say what caused the accident, until they complete a thorough investigation, including forensics tests of the vehicle’s black box.

There are many unknowns at this point. What moved the vehicle? Was it by human will, mechanical error, or other force, causing it to plunge off of a steep 100-foot cliff to drop below onto the rocky coastline of the Pacific Ocean? What seems to be strange, is the fact that there were no skid marks on the area prior to the crash, denoting that brakes were not applied.

The fatal accident can be traced back in time to the whereabouts of the family at their residence in Woodland, Washington on Friday, March 23. They are also reported as being from Linn, Orgegon, which could be where their identifications were registered. Clark County, Washington had recently opened a child protection case regarding the Harts. This was instigated by their brand new neighbors, Bruce and Dana DeKalb. The Dekalb’s have reported that they were concerned about the Hart children. One of whom, apparently came to their residence, asking for food.

Mainstream media is apt to be playing with speculation at this point, as to the motivation behind the road trip that the Hart’s were taking. It is to be found repeatedly that the Hart’s were fleeing the Child Protection investigation. It does seem to be a possible cause. Possible also is that they could not get along with their neighbors. Many of us can relate to that predicament.

“Moms of family who drove off cliff have dark history of abuse – by Ruth Brown” https://nypost.com/2018/03/29/moms-of-family-who-drove-off-cliff-have-dark-history-of-abuse/
Much is being made of the past criminal record of Sarah Hart, who took the rap for domestic assault of one of the children in 2011. This was in the state of Minnesota, it was seven years ago. It was settled for a plea bargain and no time was served, in lieu of one year’s probation. That punishment was apparently accomplished and the individual could be assumed as rehabilitated. Yet the suspicion of recidivism is much-touted in this media speculation. That’s due to the tendency of negative thinking, as if nobody ever could learn from their mistakes!

“According to CBS News, Dana DeKalb said Devonte told her that Jennifer and Sarah weren’t feeding the children and were “punishing them by withholding food”. Bill Groener, a previous neighbor, said the Harts didn’t eat sugar and grew their own vegetables.” https://www.inquisitr.com/4845900/jennifer-and-sarah-hart-devonte-harts-homeschooling-parents-werent-feeding-them-had-cps-pre-deaths-visit/ The inquisitr needs to post a follow-up on Mr. Groener’s dietary recommendations.

We mustn’t take any sides until all the facts are in. The other side of the coin gives the many glowing reports by various family and friends, who say that the mothers and the family are happy and harmonious.

Terra Bundance is an activist who is working to promote a positive legacy of the Hart family https://twitter.com/terrabundance/status/979179418752114693 She is circulating the heart-felt words of another friend of the family, Jillian Berry, “The world lost 5 if not 8 of the highest quality individuals ever in existence yesterday and your story was salt in the deep, thick wounds that are only beginning to be licked by more people than you could imagine. I urge you to display a shred of compassion, respect and honor by retracting any seemingly slanderous statements until a thorough investigation has occurred.” https://www.facebook.com/terrabundance/posts/10160134626105371

RawStory spoke with Jeni Wren Stottrup, a friend of the family and a journalist who writes for a local weekly newspaper, to find out that the Hart mothers had recently celebrated their ninth anniversary of adopting, days before the fatal accident. https://www.rawstory.com/2018/03/boy-hugged-cop-iconic-protest-photo-may-killed-fleeing-adoptive-mothers-cliff-crash-report/

The parents and the children were also involved with music production, in a youth empowerment project. Their collaborative song can be listened to at this link https://soundcloud.com/maxirib/wolf-pak

It has already been noted that the Hart’s were frequently taking family trips. No facts are known at this juncture about their destination, if there was one? Were they intentionally going to end up in Mendocino County? Was there a rally in the area? Or were they actually headed to Sacramento, California?

That would make a lot of sense, considering that it is already proven that the Hart family does social justice activism. Presently, there are massive protests in Sacramento, due to the fatal shooting death of an unarmed black man, by police officers. If it sounds familar, it should. It is a very similar incident as the previous one in Ferguson, the protest of which the optimistic, Devonte Hart photo encapsulated.

The obvious and logical questions are: what was the Hart family doing from the time they departed their residence in Woodland, until the time of their fatal accident? Where did they spend their time? Who did they spend time with? They covered several hundred miles. There are 3 nights and 3 days in that duration.

Answering these basic questions would provide many clues about what they were doing along the road trip and possibly if there was foul play. To date, this writer has found no other news outlet forthcoming with any pertinent information. It is hoped that important facts will emerge and dispell the distasteful speculation. One does have to speculate, but please do so within the bounds of good reasoning.

There are many issues wrapped up in this tragic story, not the least of which is child abuse. There are also the loaded topics of: racism, leftism, rightism, lesbianism, police excessive force, and death threats. Let’s learn from all this or America will continue to fall into deeper civil strife.

Standing Rock

 

Dear Peter Appleseed,

Winning Justice at Standing Rock
Trial dates are set, and it’s a critical hour for our legal efforts. On August 13, Chase Iron Eyes will walk into a North Dakota courtroom and face prosecution for his alleged crimes. The charges? Trespassing on the Lakota’s own sacred land and inciting a riot — when a group of 74 unarmed water protectors peacefully withstood a raid of Last Child’s Camp and subsequent arrest at the hands of fully armed law enforcement officials.

Thankfully, Chase has a dedicated team in his corner. You are among a group thousands strong who stood with Standing Rock in its hour of need, who have followed this story to the courts, and who have taken repeated action to keep the fight for justice on track. Now, in order for that justice to be served, we need your financial support.

Our legal team must — and will — gather a staggering amount of evidence in the coming months. This includes more than 50 depositions, requiring travel to Texas and North Carolina to question, under oath, officials of Dakota Access pipeline parent company Energy Transfer Partners and their hired mercenary security firm, TigerSwan.

In preparation for this moment, the Lakota People’s Law Project staff has spent the past several decades combining investigation, litigation, education, and organizing to create solutions for social reform in the US. Once again, we’re ready to challenge injustice. This time, we are confronting racism and violations of the Federal Civil Rights Act and the Environmental Protection Act in support of our First Amendment rights under the Constitution.

There are several key distinctions about the Chase Iron Eyes case:

We are pursuing a potentially game-changing “necessity defense”;
73 other water protectors can use the evidence we gather in their own defenses;
We successfully petitioned to replace an assigned judge with our preferred judge;
These landmark legal defenses can set precedents that will safeguard all future protectors of water and land, all those who stand in strength to tear down injustice. This case is being fought for all of us who care about indigenous rights, all of us who care about the First Amendment, and all of us who care about Mother Earth. Your support now can help Chase make history.

Wopila — we thank you!

P. S. The upcoming trials — and surrounding public education — will not only exonerate our clients; they will expose the injustices perpetrated by state-sponsored private military operations. We will continue to provide updates to you as the team uncovers the truth and explores the extent of the rights violations at Standing Rock. With your continued aid, we will turn the tide in this country at its darkest hour. With your support, we will prevail.

Going Zero Waste

 

◊April is just around the corner. This means we’re rolling into Earth Month! Earth Day is April 22nd, but many celebrate all month long. Well, there are some of us that celebrate all year long. You know, , folks like us.

Earth Month means that I am gearing up for lots of events, and I cannot wait to share them with you! I’m doing something a little different with my weekly email. I’m using this as a little bit of a roundup of weekly happenings and things I’m currently loving.

Here’s what’s new on the blog:

Zero Waste Hostess Gifts – I go to a lot of parties, and I don’t like showing up empty handed. Grab a few of my favorite gifts to bring.
Why You Should Recycle Less – I’m talking all about recycling. Did you know China recently put a ban on plastic and paper recycling?
5 Places to Find Zero Waste Supplies – If you’re looking for zero waste supplies, here’s five places you should look.
Here’s one of my favorite new photos!

Here’s a quote that’s really resonating with me, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – Buckminster Fuller. I love Buky Fuller. If you’re not familiar with him, he’s worth reading up on. A revolutionary who was far ahead for his time.

I’m also currently digging roasted sweet potatoes and homemade peanut butter. I hope you have a wonderful week!

Sincerely,

Kathryn K.

Andy Warhol exhibit in Hudson Valley area New York

 

Chronogram magazine featured the story recently.  It’s all about the current Andy Warhol exhibits. Click here to read full article.

My friend Ivy Nicholson and her two adult children will be pleased that the legacy of Andy Warhol is going strong.  Click here for Ivy’s movie listing.

Commented as Ahgamen Keyboa, site user: I will have to check this out at SUNNy New Paltz and Vassar Poughkeepsie. Although I Ahgamen knew Andy Warhol not, I’m associated with some of the Warhol factory members, such as photographer Billy Name and Ivy Nicholson. Ivy appears in my movie Protesters (director Tasciotti) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0629833/ This is an amazing thing, what a blast from the past. I’m interested in art history and pop culture. As such I’ve been studying the movements and influential figures. Andy Warhol is one of those who successfully capitalized on his activities, notably commericalizing everything he did. What pop and satire! Is it art? Is it good art? What art is good? I dunno, it’s in the eye of the beholder, it’s all opinion. My opinion of late, is that I prefer realism, landscapes and portraits especially. I do use digital and electronically-enhanced art, but what I am moving back towards is manually-done paintings and sculpture. I have nothing against Warhol. It’s fascinating and a historical part of America’s past and that of the whole world.

Extreme Winter Weather Northeast United States, Canada

 

Update 2018 March 15 12:06AM

Researching some of the latest forecasts, came up with this article on Bloomberg news – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-14/northeastern-u-s-may-start-spring-with-yet-another-snowstorm

Northeastern U.S. May Start Spring With Yet Another Snowstorm

After reading this article, looks like it is going to agree with the second half of my prediction, which was posted March 9, more than 5 days ago.  read initial posting below this UPDATE
——————————————————————-

I am Ahgamen-Keyboa, researcher, naturalist, painter, author, historian, sometime psychic. The weather has been extreme in the Northeast U.S.A. of the past two months, from January to the present March 7, 2018 (publishing this 12:30am March 9).  This region also includes the parts of Canada adjacent, their southeastern sector, as weather movements know no nationality barriers!

If we were to compare this winter to other winters of the past few decades, it could be deemed as average and the standard. It’s going to be cold, that’s going to freeze the ground, it’s going to freeze the precipitation, there’s going to be snowfall periodically. This region is known to be cold and wet in winter, as opposed to being dry and arid.

There was one highlight of unusual occurrence from February 20-22, 2018. The temperatures went way up and way down. It brought warmth to the region more typical of June weather, practically summer-like! This was not merely in the Northeast region of the U.S.; it began in the Rocky Mountains region, especially in Colorado. These record highs were surprising for millions of people, to say the least! It will be remembered for a long time.

Then there has recently been these back to back winter storms!  Two noreasters in a row.  We are just now in the midst of the second one and clean-up is not finished.  In fact, as I am now able to share this, there was no electricity or internet to post my article on March 8. when I wanted to.  Power outages were widespread throughout the region.

Aside from the relatively normal and average year with the odd exceptions, I’ve been taking a careful look at my charts and permutations.  Basically, I have been crunching some of the pertinent facts and trying to make interpretations. I noticed something and I’m going out on a limb to state that I discovered a pattern. It is such that I can extrapolate this and make a prediction. If I am right, then I will be able to continue with the methodology. If I am wrong, then I will go back to the drawing board and try again.

It seems to me that there is a high probability of another major winter storm. Let me describe the scenario: It is possible that around March 16th to the 17th (2018) there will be another unseasonably warm event. This means that it could approach record high temperatures in the Northeast and possibly extend into southern areas of the East Coast, as well as northwards into Canada.

What will follow possibly is another weather maker. It could move into the region late on March 17th. It should be a lot of precipitation and possibly some windy turbulence. If the temperature is able to drop enough from the previous days, then it will bring quite a bit of snow.

Basically, the storm will carry through March 18th and into part of the 19th. It would be considered a very late winter weather event, considering that the Spring Equinox is only days away, the official start of Spring season. This is unusual for the region. I am predicting this more than 10 days in advance. We’re going to find out. It’s kind of exciting!

 

Can hardly wait for the pleasant days of Summer.  When all the trees and plants will be in bloom and fruits will be ready for harvest!
