Were not the ‘Tong Wars’ entertainment for the miners?

Taoist philosophy practiced in Weaverville’s Joss House may subtly or overtly deal with evil. This special place in the Trinities is where one may achieve balance in a world filled with chaos and upset. 

 

Interestingly, Taoist practitioners highly involved in working toward balance are well aware of the symbolism and philosophy of the Joss House. Yet, those unknowing may or may not realize evil is dealt with through physical and spiritual barriers.

 

In addition to what our Chinese heritage still adds to our lives today, our Gold Rush pioneers also passed along wisdom. Judge C. A. Paulsen, whose parents arrived in the early 1850s, told me a saying he learned from his mother and father who appreciated diversity in people and opinions. I was in first grade when I first heard Judge Paulsen say, “Never worry too much about what happens here (in the Trinities), people get along, die or leave.”

Deukmejian got in a classic quote in this article:

Dan

Deukmejian was followed most of the day by more than a dozen reporters and photographers.

In Weaverville, the news media trailed the governor into the century-old Joss House, a temple built to keep out demons.

"It didn't stop the press from going in there. I'm not sure how effective those barriers are," the governor quipped.

  After that morning rumination about Trinity River gravel vs. DG, I got to wondering if Ed Barnes could possibly still be around (he’d be ancient) – and found this http://articles.latimes.com/1985-07-24/news/mn-4728_1_governor-feeds-salmon, a 1985 piece about Governor Deukmejian visiting the TRRP on a campaign swing  – and what Ed (who gets promoted here from civil engineer to ‘state environmental scientist’ - or would that be the other way around?) had to say about the program’s success. 



  We so ‘live in the moment’ I thought you-all might enjoy a longer view of Trinity River matters.
