Rainbow Gathering Washington State 2011 News Coverage

June 24, 2011

just love this pic! Mt St. Helen's Rainbow.

July 7: Now officials are saying they don’t know how the Rainbow sister from Weed, CA died. She suffered from cardiac arrest, but no drugs were found near her nor was there any evidence of drug use. The death is under investigation. More here.

Sherriff backtracks on cause of death of Amber Kellar.

Crap journalism here at the Willamette Weekly:  Rainbow Gathering in Washington Was a Bum Trip for Some.

AP:Rainbows, locals bemoan Forest Service presence

July 6: Sad news. A sister died of an overdose at the Gathering. Read about it here.

This one from Oregon Live is pretty good but some of the comments left are pretty rude.: Oregon Live

July 4th Welcome Home Brothers and Sistahs!  Here’s a recent article, hot off the press: Seattle Times

June 30: I got a good chuckle from this news coverage. They say the Forest Service is expecting 50,000 Rainbows. lol

check it out here.

This was posted out of Portland today, June 29. Click here:  Rainbow Gathering

This is a pretty good news report from KVAL out of Eugene, OR. (link here).

Barry Plunkett is interviewed.

The reporter showed both sides but I think it was way more favorable than some of the things I’ve seen online.

I think they should have interviewed the merchants in Cougar on video. In my experience, most  merchants are generally thrilled with Rainbow Gatherings. No matter if there is some shoplifting, which they are used to anyway, their business skyrockets during the Gathering. Generally, the Rainbow Family shows respect and are friendly! It’s only a few folk who are afraid. Poor thangs. 🙂

I wish I could download this video and embed it. I just don’t know how!

I don’t think I will be able to make it to the Gathering this year, although miracles happen.

Please, brothers and sisters, be gentle to the Earth and to each other.

    My nephew Edward “Christopher” Bennett died in a head on collision in Washington, on July 23rd. He was a great soul, a loving and kind person with fierce determination, a great downhill skater, with aspirations of becoming pro. He was returning to Maryhill, WA to compete in the downhill event there.

    Definitely imagine that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the internet the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other people think about issues that they just don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
