John reads from his novel the Milagro Beanfield War.

John spoke at a benefit showing of the Milagro Beanfield War on the 20th anniversary of the film for the Martinez Hacienda on Mar 28, 2008 and is introduced by Morris Whitten. John Nichols views are his own, not those of Cultural Energy, so please, Robert Redford, don't sue us. Editing by Harvey Soloman with normalization by Robin Collier

La Serna Grant Bylaws
The Dec 16 09 meeting on re-organization of la Serna Grant simply reviewed the bylaws already covered in the previous meeting with the only signicant change being the reduction of the Board from 7 to 5 members.
