"You have to do a lot of fighting. You're fighting over water; you're fighting over property lines; you're fight- ing over animal rights. It's huge." But she said it's balanced by the beauty that sfirrounds you daily; it has made her a strong and independent woman. In the current econo- my, she is comforted by knowing that she is self-suffi- cient. She can grow her own food and eat her own bee What does she see in her fu- ture? Maddalena wants to be a voice for the farming and ranching communities. She wants to keep ranching alive for the next generation. Kathleen G0icoechea was the last,to-speak ~t the Cattle-, Women's presentation of their women's history. She has only lived here 20 years, but she described how com- pletely the valley shelters its own. In April 2007, the Goicoecheas' 117-old barn burned down and with it their hay and all their sheep. The ranchers rallied, first with emotional support and food, and then with a promise to help them rebuild their flock. Doris Goss was the first to arrive with lambs and the other ranchers followed suit. "'I had never experienced such an outpouring of kind- ness," she said. Her daughter, Marsha, handles much of the ranch ' work today, and Goicoechea devotes herself to numerous community organizations, like the Farm Bureau, the Fire Safe Council and Sierra Valley Health Care Coalition. Her husband, Dave, is the chairman of the Sierra ] County Board of Supervisors. ] Both of them are cbncerned about preserving the ranches and ranching life of Sierra Valley into the future.
