The Voice of Nosara Now On Air
By Ashley Steyaert

Exciting new things are happening with our local area news, media coverage and exposure! As of February 2010, The Voice of Nosara has joined forces with All Tribes Radio in an effort to further improve and expand the content and publicity of Guanacaste’s local news and opinion. For those who aren’t familiar with All Tribes Radio (also known as ATR), here’s a breakdown in the words of founder Ken Dunn.

VON: “What is All Tribes Radio?”
Dunn: “ATR is one of the world’s most unique Internet radio stations. Calling all tribes to unite in peace, we play an eclectic mix of down tempo, trip hop, world beat, rock, Latin, jazz, and acoustic music. In keeping with our message of world peace, we also broadcast regular updates from United Nations Radio in New York. We were also one of the first Internet stations to play only Creative Commons licensed music. Creative Commons is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share. ATR is 100% commercial-free, depending entirely on donations from our community of listeners and sponsors.”

“All Tribes Radio’s Nosara connection is [called] Radio Todas Las Tribus, which produces a Spanish language program of international Latin music called ‘Pura Vida de Nosara, Costa Rica’. We have also recently partnered with the Voice of Nosara to produce a local Nosara news program.”

VON: “Who listens to ATR?”
Dunn: “We are a relatively small Internet radio station with an average 6,000 unique listeners per month in over 120 countries. Approximately 45% of listeners are from the United States, with Canada, Japan, Mexico, Germany, France, Spain, the United Kingdom, and other European Union countries forming the bulk of our listeners.”

VON: “What plans / goals do you have for ATR in the foreseeable future?”
Dunn: “In addition to our focus on global issues and the promotion of international Creative Commons music, I would like to see ATR evolve into a format linking small progressive communities around the world, such as Nosara. I would like to increase our Costa Rican listener base, while providing a vehicle for increased communication within the local Nosara communities”.

Ken Dunn and his wife Anna Green are originally from Canada and fell in love with Nosara when they first arrived here on holiday around 6 years ago. Ken’s love affair with radio began as a child, when he first turned in to shortwave broadcasts from Latin American countries, including Costa Rica. In his words, “the experience obviously made a lasting impression!”

“VON has recently begun producing a brief Nosara news program on ATR as part of our Radio Todas Las Tribus programming. We look forward to working with VON on future programs.”

Escuelita de Verano 2010

We are proud to report another successful year of Nosara summer school arts and education program. Every year we have record breaking enrollment and this year was no exception with 220 children who attended this year’s program. Thankfully we were able to rent a bus from Empresa Rojas from Nicoya in order to provide transportation. The bus was packed full and so was the school. To make room for everyone we set up extra classrooms outside. More >

Trees destroyed again…

OPINION – The tree ‘trimmers’ came 4 weeks ago to the properties behind mine to trim ‘a couple of branches’…and it makes me sad and disappointed that no thought, care, consideration, supervision, planning or basic common sense was used when the trees were trimmed. As you can see from the photo…this is just one of the trees that were basically destroyed (there are many others). More >

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I was pleased to see the “water issue” following some of the public discussions that occurred when I last visited Samara from my water starved town of Austin, Texas. I would urge developers and builders (and their deep campaign contribution pockets), to take the lead on enacting legislation at the local, state and/or federal level for mandatory low flow toilets, low flow showers, xeriscape landscaping and grey water sewage systems for all new construction, as well as for additions and any redo of existing construction that exceeds 25% of the value of the structure.
