Treasure Hunter Uncovering the Case of a Lost Safe from a Dam Disaster

Desert Roamer Press is negotiating with ranch owners to film a documentary about the developing Arizona Territory and the Walnut Grove Dam disaster of 1890

CHEYENNE , WYOMING, UNITED STATES , January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greg Hawk, specializing in treasure hunting in the American Southwest, is currently in the process of negotiating with ranch owners near Prescott, Arizona to produce a documentary on their property.

The documentary will be based on Hawk’s own quest for answers to where exactly Bob Brow’s Saloon was located at the time the Walnut Grove Dam failed. Inside the saloon was a safe containing a safe with $5,000 to $10,000 and barrels of whiskey which disappeared. To this date, the safe has never been verified to be found.

There is a great deal of history surrounding this story which starts back in 1886 when they first started building the dam and at a time when Prescott, Arizona was the capital of the Arizona Territory. The documentary has a vast wealth of history to draw from, not only of the building of the dam but also of the gold and silver mining boom along with the railroads and stagecoaches bringing people and supplies to the new territory.

Greg Hawk and his esteemed colleague, Prof. Jim Fink, a geological engineer and physicist from Tucson, collaborated in researching the Walnut Grove Dam failure and gained extensive information from resources like magazine articles, newspapers, and history books. However, what kept eluding them was the exact location of Bob Brow’s Saloon during the dam failure.

Although the safe is suspected to be buried in the sands of the Hassayampa River, which is an intermittent river flowing predominantly Southwards towards Wickenburg, there are a number of speculations about where the Saloon was located. Various treasure hunters suggested maybe it was further downstream where a crew built a lower portion of the dam or it was closer to Wickenburg.

The Walnut Dam was 110 feet high, holding back nine billion gallons of water. The water that flowed out when the wall failed was 80 to 100 feet high and heading towards Wickenburg, where it started to flatten out to 20-foot-high waves. With this, the water rushing from the dam caused many to lose their lives, it’s reported that bodies were found 30 miles downstream from their original location and the force of the water tossed large boulders around as if they were balls.

More information about the Walnut Grove Dam Disaster of 1890 and it’s devastating consequences can be found in Jim Liggett’s book, ‘Arizona’s Worst Disaster: The Hassayampa Story 1886 – 2009’, which has been republished by Desert Roamer Press with permission from the author.

Greg and Jim’s research led them to visit the old Walnut Grove Dam site now located on a ranch. The family owning the ranch is the fourth generation, coming from a line of ranchers owning that land since 1909. The family gave Greg and Jim a tour of the dam ruins, including valuable information from old images of the dam and reservoir before its failure.

After visiting the dam site several times over a time period of a few months, Greg and Jim connected the dots that the information given by the ranch family could possibly point them to the actual location of Bob Brow’s Saloon. The ranch which covers 45 square miles along the Hassayampa River provides a perfect location for filming.

Raised in a small farm town in Illinois, Greg Hawk’s adventures and experiences are extensive. Before starting the Desert Roamer Press he owned and operated Fantasy Dive Charters in Port Douglas, Australia. He explored sunken ships and planes during his numerous diving expeditions throughout the Pacific. After college, Hawk served in the army, which led him to Vietnam. After his time in the army, he worked in commercial and civil construction, which led him to work on private and governmental water resource projects.

Currently, Hawk lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and his treasure hunting is mainly focused in the state of Arizona, occasionally also around the border with California. Find more information about his publications and treasure hunting adventures on the Desert Roamer Press website, where he regularly updates his Travel Blog and Videos, along with his latest book, ‘Random Tangents: Embracing Adventures in Life’, where he explores his life’s adventures and many challenges along the way.

PTSD in Domestic Violence Victims & Veterans of War ‘Conquering the Enemy, the Memory Within’

Christian Espinosa Announces a New Cybersecurity Guide “The Smartest Person in the Room”

LONDON, UK, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In his book, “The Smartest Person in the Room: The Root Cause and New Solution for Cybersecurity” Christian Espinosa teaches the seven steps of his Secure Methodology to help boost awareness, communication, and mindset – all vital elements within every organization wanting to win the war against cybercrime.

The Smartest Person in the Room addresses common issues faced by people working in the field of cybersecurity. Christian Espinosa presents a solid solution to help companies protect themselves against cybercriminals. The author has decades of experience and many achievements in his field. Espinosa’s cybersecurity career includes roles as an US Air Force officer, DoD contractor, freelancer, entrepreneur, and business owner. He has a complete understanding of the fears and devastation cyberattacks can cause in business.

The book details how uncertainty and feelings of significance can hinder the personal and professional growth of even the brightest technical minds. According to Espinosa, the problems within the cybersecurity industry are caused by people, not a lack of cutting-edge technology. His experience has shown that technical people typically find it difficult to interact with others. This manifests through intellectual bullying and posturing.

Even though technical staff are naturally curious, they often fear showing this curiosity to the public, preferring to remain silent rather than allow people to think they lack knowledge. This fear of judgment is what prevents the essential communication required to effectively solve cybersecurity problems.

Espinosa uses his experience to focus on why the mentality of not wanting someone else to be the smartest person in the room perpetuates. It also influences management and their hiring strategies.

Insecurity, fear, defensiveness, and posturing are common among technical teams, and these all lead to complicated cybersecurity solutions. Teams should be more focused on prioritizing and offering solutions that are easy to implement. Espinosa knows that simple and easy are two different things because nothing can be achieved without some effort.

The seven steps of the Secure Methodology are each designed to boost internal and client relationships through listening and communication techniques. Espinosa knows that people skills (empathy, trust, listening, and vulnerability) are necessary to develop and refine.

Throughout his life, Christian Espinosa felt he had to relentlessly pursue success to overcome the sense of not belonging. From early on in his career, his willpower to be the best drove him to succeed in many things. Each achievement was dampened by his fear of getting too close to people.

It was only in 2014 that Espinosa realized his amazing professional and athletic achievements lacked fulfillment. His ego was getting in the way because it was keeping his mind closed to the support and good advice of others.

Espinosa says the book was an opportunity to share everything that took him years to realize. “It is a guide for leaders and technical employees to improve. Heightened cybersecurity can be achieved when the unknown becomes our strongest defense.”

Christian Espinosa recently said, “Statistically, given my childhood, I wasn’t likely to ‘succeed’.” This has not stopped him from achieving great things in his career or personal life. In “The Smartest Person in the Room”, Espinosa generously shares snippets from his life.

The Air Force Veteran and CEO of Alpine Security not only finds time to write, coach, and speak, but also holds multiple patents in cybersecurity. He also continues adding to his various sporting achievements. These include mountain climbing, skydiving, deep-sea diving, Ironman triathlons, and travel. He also teaches outdoor survival skills.

He continues to work and play hard, and his inspiring life story shows how someone living below the poverty line managed to become the founder and CEO of his own successful cybersecurity company.

Espinosa has said about his journey of self-awareness: “The next level of success took me a while to achieve. I realized that without a different approach, I would always be sidelined. Entrepreneurship woke me up to the fact that I needed emotional intelligence.”

In this book, you can share the remarkable journey of Christian Espinosa. The book is not only aimed at company executives and technical leaders, it is for anyone interested in learning skills needed to take a career and life to the next level. Espinosa shows how opening the self to fulfillment and belonging is the path to a more fulfilling life and career.

Hunting Snipes +four, David Martin Anderson's Latest Anthology Collection, Now Available

Hunting Snipes +four Book Cover

ConRoca Publishing Announces the January 2021 Release of David Martin Anderson's Latest Novel, HUNTING SNIPES +four!

Here snipe, snipe, snipe, snipe.”

— David Martin Anderson

BOERNE, TEXAS, USA, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Conroca Publishing’s Editor-in-Chief, Kevin Abreau, announces a January 2021 release date of David Martin Anderson’s collection of stories titled "Hunting Snipes+four" (76,000 words; general fiction). Anderson’s collection of prose consists of five stories, novellas to short story novelettes, all thoroughly enjoyable and quite remarkably told. Suitable for ages 16+, Conroca Publishing strongly feels the collection could make into a required literary tome for high school age children as a YA read, but the plots also make into an entertaining read for adults. Anderson wrote the diverse collection to transport a reader’s imagination to worlds non découvert—an Indian raid in West Texas in 1867, encounters with the ghost of Cole Porter, Iowa during the 2020 pandemic, southern Utah and a serial killer hunting elderly couples, and Beggar’s Night in 1938 Brooklyn and the infamous Orson Welles radio broadcast of ‘The War of the Worlds.’ Each story lends itself to screenplay as they are concise and visual with crisp and realistic dialogue. Book distribution is through Ingram and Conroca Publishing. Books are also available through Amazon both in trade paperback and as a E-reader. Anderson’s career as a writer spans over twenty years. His The Last Good Horse is considered one of the twenty greatest horse stories ever written (ref., Amazon) and was a finalist for the coveted Faulkner-Wisdom literary award, as was its sequel Beaty Butte. Other major works include The Cowboys of Haddington Moor, Harry’s Apology, and Les Tres Papillons. Hunting Snipes+four is Mr. Anderson’s first stab and shorter storytelling, and he does a masterful job.

Of special literary quality is Anderson’s "Runner Speaks," an action-packed novella (12,000 words) set at Fort Lancaster, Texas in 1867. While loosely based on the only hostile attack on a Texas fort, the plot, itself, is historically accurate. The protagonist is an eleven-year-old German immigrant, the lone survivor of the Nueces River massacre of 1862 (a slaughter initiated by ruthless Confederate soldiers). Seeking help, the boy wanders to the Union-controlled Fort Lancaster one hundred miles away only to find the fort abandoned; the remote fort sits on the banks of the Pecos River in a desolate corner of Texas. For five years, the boy lives off the land along the river, alone; running becomes his catharsis to ease traumatic memories of murders he witnessed along the Nueces. Coincidentally, the boy has lost his ability to speak because of mental anguish suffered during that killing spree. In the summer of 1867, U.S. Cavalry ‘Buffalo Soldiers’ reoccupy the fort but the boy refuses to intermingle with any adult wearing a uniform. Now, at age sixteen, a ‘hostile’ raid besets his tranquil Pecos valley. Kickapoo warriors have successfully stolen the fort’s horses but their Comanchero brothers want to continue fighting until female hostages are taken. This means a massacre will undoubtedly take place because Lancaster soldiers refuse to surrender. Badly outnumbered 800 to 40 and with no horses available for a messenger to ride to Fort Stockton to summon reinforcements, the boy is sequestered into carrying a letter on foot the eighty-mile distance. If he reaches Fort Stockton in less than two days, the survivors at Fort Lancaster stand a chance to survive; if he fails, death will surely follow. The Comancheros discover the boy’s flight and pursue him in a twisted hunters’ game of ‘cat-and-mouse.’ En route, the boy’s letter is lost. Thus, if the boy somehow survives his mission to Fort Stockton, he must find the strength to overcome past ghosts and verbally communicate the situation to the fort commander. The current-tense writing style of this story propels a reader into the midst of the plot with every twist and turn felt along the way. It is a remarkable piece of prose!
Other stories in the collection are more contemporary but just as creative. All are available at Amazon and distributed through Ingram!
ISBN 978-1-892617-34-7 (Paperback); ISBN 978-1-892617-35-4 (Digital/eBook)

New Book on Helping Chamber Professionals Have Greater Impact Achieves #1 Bestseller Status on Launch Day!

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ignite Press announced this week that Dave Adkisson’s new book, Horseshoes vs. Chess: A Practical Guide for Chamber of Commerce Leaders, became a #1 bestseller on Amazon this week in the categories of Commerce, Fundraising and Grants, Business Teams, and more!

The book is available on Amazon at https://amzn.to/35RDpP2

Horseshoes vs. Chess offers a wealth of practical ways and lessons to help any Chamber leader increase their positive impact on their community and achieve greater prosperity.

“This is not meant to be an instructional manual or a scholarly work on organizational dynamics, nonprofit management or leadership,” says Dave. “Rather, it attempts to offer particular insights about leadership in a chamber of commerce context – to address time management, politics, group dynamics and similar matters – all within that context.”

To celebrate the launch of the book, the Kindle version of the book will be on sale for 99 cents for a limited time.

A veteran chamber executive and former mayor, Dave Adkisson, CCE, served as the CEO of three chambers: his hometown chamber in Owensboro, KY; the metro Birmingham (AL) Regional Chamber and the Kentucky (state) Chamber. On the national level, he served as the 2010 chairman of the board of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), was the 2014 chairman of the board of the Council of State Chambers (COSC), was a founder of the national State Chamber Policy Center, served six years on the board of the U. S. Chamber and served as the chairman of the U.S. Chamber’s education policy committee. He is a past chair of the ACCE Foundation. Together, he spent more than 30 years in the chamber field.

Adkisson retired from the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce in 2019 after 15 years as president and CEO. During his tenure, the Chamber was routinely ranked as the top lobbying organization in Kentucky, tripled its budget, doubled its staff and was named the 2017 State Chamber of the Year. In addition to achieving several landmark legislative victories, Adkisson created the Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center and the Leadership Institute for School Principals, a program which has invested more than $3 million in executive leadership training for school principals.

Earlier in his career, he was elected mayor of Owensboro, KY at age 34 and re-elected four years later without opposition. He championed the creation of the RiverPark (performing arts) Center on the Owensboro riverfront, the Mid-America Airpark, a city-county workforce center and the 13-mile-long Greenbelt Park which was later named in his honor. He was a co-founder of Leadership Kentucky and is a former chairman of the Kentucky Advocates for Higher Education. He serves on the board of the Kentucky American Water Company.

Originally from Owensboro, Adkisson received his B.A. in philosophy and political science from Georgetown College, where he is the immediate past chairman of the board of trustees and earned his masters in ethics from Harvard University. He was the 2019 recipient of Leadership Kentucky’s “Flame of Excellence” award and in 2020, was one of two recipients of ACCE’s Life Member Award. He and his wife, Bonnie, reside in Lexington, KY, along with their two children and three grandchildren.

Desert Roamer Press is Negotiating to Film a Documentary about the Walnut Grove Dam Disaster of 1890.

Walnut Grove Dam Disaster of 1890

The Story of the Walnut Grove Dam Disaster of 1890 Involves Early Arizona Territory History and the Hook in the Story is the Search for the Lost Safe.

CHEYENNE, WYOMING, USA, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Greg Hawk, Author and Treasure Hunter, has been negotiating with the owners of a ranch close to Prescott, Arizona in hopes of producing a documentary on their property. The story involves the history of the developing Arizona Territory and the rush for gold. The treasure story that is intertwined in the Walnut Grove Dam Disaster is that of Bob Brow’s Saloon that disappeared along with barrels of whiskey and a safe reportedly containing between $5,000 and $10,000 worth of valuables. The safe is believed to still be buried somewhere in the sands of the Hassayampa river.

The Walnut Grove Dam failure is documented in the book, Arizona’s Worst Disaster: The Hassayampa Story 1886 – 2009, by Jim Liggett. Desert Roamer Press has recently gained the rights to republish the book from the author. If interested you may find it at www.desertroamerpress.com

Working with his good friend, Prof. Jim Fink, a geophysicist and geological engineer based in Tucson, they started gathering all relevant information they could find on the Walnut Grove Dam Disaster of 1890. Reading numerous magazine articles on the dam failure, studying the weekly newspaper articles during that period, and scanning through Arizona history books provided a vast amount of research material.

The biggest question is where was Bob Brow’s Saloon located when the Walnut Grove Dam failed? Some treasure hunters believed the saloon had to be downstream close to the work crews building a lower dam. Another thought was that it was located closer to Wickenburg that was becoming a small town at that time. The actual story of the dam failure tells of bodies being found 30 miles downstream from where they were and of large boulders being tossed like tennis balls. The 110-foot-high dam held back nine billion gallons of water and when it failed a wave of water that was 80 feet to 100 feet high started its way down the canyon. By the time the wave hit Wickenburg and flattened out it was still 20 feet high.

Over the last several months Greg and Jim have made several journeys out to the site of the old Walnut Grove Dam site. The owners of the ranch where the dam was erected showed them the ruins of the dam. They provided pictures of the dam and reservoir prior to its failure and talked about the history of the area. They are fourth generation ranchers and their family have owned the land since 1909. The information they provided may reveal the actual location where Bob Brow’s Saloon stood.
