6:35 Tom DeWeese, American Policy Center,  


The American Policy FOUNDATION – the educational sister group to my America Policy CENTER is launching an online video news outlet.


It is called CATCHING FIRE NEWS  and will feature programs no other network dares to air!


Obviously, you are aware of the outright lies and censorship of the truth coming from CNN, MSNBC, plus all the major networks and their local affiliates. 


Never will you hear the honest truth from these media sources the full truth about the Climate Change hoax, or the forces behind the lie. Nor will you hear about the massive move to crush our agriculture industry or the 30×30 land grab. 


How about the facts about the army of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that surround nearly every local elected official, pressuring them to impose their private agendas? 


Above all, they don’t ever mention what the Great Reset is really designed to do, including the elimination of private property, free markets, your life savings, and individual liberty, as they move to impose a global communist state.


Most conservative news outlets only manage to give pieces and parts of these issues. And do they ever have those of us who do know these facts as guests? Very rarely!


Catching Fire News will give our movement the outlet to expand our reach and keep a steady force of information coming. Most importantly, not only will we spread across the Internet to expose the threats, we will also carry a very different message. Catching Fire News will focus on solutions.

 The Ashland-Area Mineral Springs

By Dennis Powers

During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the mineral springs percolating around the Ashland area were hailed for their medicinal and healing values. The bubbling carbon dioxide (“CO2”) and presence of lithium salts (lithium carbonate and/or lithium chloride) were valued dating back to the Native Americans. They soaked in the waters to ease sore muscles, believed in the healing properties, and called the mineral spring vapors “Hi-u-Skookum” medicine, or the breath of the Great Spirit. Lying on pine boughs within a circle of stones, natives breathed the CO2 gases; then sat inside skins-and-boughs enclosures for reviving, followed by chanting with a shaman in a sweat lodge.  

Referring to the five mineral-springs-fed, public swimming pools, large colorful railroad posters in the early 1900s described Ashland as “The Venice of the West.” These five were the Helman Baths, off Otis Street in Ashland; Twin Plunges at First and A Streets; Buckhorn Springs, off Dead Indian Road; Colestin Springs, south of town; and Jackson Hot Springs (now Jackson Wellsprings) on Highway 99 North. Only Jackson Wellsprings reconstructed pool and drastically remodeled facilities remain today (owing to the pandemic, only “soaking and RV camping are open”); Buckhorn Springs is a resort with cabins and other facilities (individual cabins now are available for rent.)

Throngs of tourists would get off at the Southern Pacific railroad station at “A” Street. A 1915 flyer heralded Ashland’s being a resort city on the Shasta route, midway between Portland and San Francisco, as eight trains arrived and left daily between these major cities. It read: “Ashland is noted for three things: beautiful environment, matchless climate, and wonderful mineral springs. There are over forty known mineral springs in and about the city.”

The tourists apparently chose the Colestin Baths, whereas locals preferred the Helman Baths in town. Springs formed a marsh in front of the Helman building, as waters flowed between the rocks forming one end of the indoor pool. People soaked their aching joints and muscles in the heated spring waters at the building’s front with water flowing from a pipe at a holding tank.

Even the City of Ashland worked to get into the act. The owner and editor of the Ashland Tidings, Bert Greer, strongly supported the creation of a health spa centered on these beneficial aspects. Although this never came into being due to acrimonious political and financial controversies, the publicity greatly helped the passage by voters in 1914 of a $175,000 bond issue, $65,000 of which was earmarked to develop Lithia Park.

During the Chautauqua series (summer-time, public lectures) in Lithia Park in the early 1900s, exposition visitors camped in the maple and evergreen groves near the Helman Baths. Trains carried people to Colestin Springs, off Mt. Ashland Ski Road in the Siskiyou Mountains, for its medicinal properties. Passengers, baggage, and tents were offloaded onto a wooden platform. As the small hotel could only house 25 guests, the rest (and as many as 100 families at a time) would pitch their tents underneath the conifers and stars.

Buckhorn Mineral Springs was adjacent to the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and Pacific Crest Trail. A lodge with fir floors, high ceilings, and single-pane windows was built on 120 acres deep in a canyon by Emigrant Creek. Health-seeking visitors flocked to its artesian well and drank the “bubbly waters rich in carbon dioxide.” Among other facilities, a terra-cotta block hut housed six vapor-bath closets. With the water vapors containing carbon dioxide (valued for their effects on the body), users sat in the chamber with their heads sticking out the top. (It’s now widely understood that breathing CO2 in quantities is very dangerous.)

Over time, these attractions wore out, especially with the hardships of the Great Depression. The public baths headed into disrepair and disuse. In 1989, the National Register of Historic Places placed the Buckhorn on its register. The Colestin Resort gradually disappeared. The “beautiful wood frame building” around the Helman pool burned down to be replaced by a plain metal structure. Where the spring-fed Twin Plunges once operated, the Ashland Food Cooperative now stands.

Little remains of the time when mineral springs were considered to be more beneficial than good exercise, healthy foods, and vitamins–but those were heady times.
