History in the making Aug. 28, 2014 at California Capitol

51st State proposals, CA & OR, JEFFERSON DECLARATION, Siskiyou County, State gov, State of Jefferson

By Editor Liz Bowen

Mark Baird, leader of the Jefferson Declaration Committee to create the State of Jefferson,  spoke at the Jefferson rally on the West steps of the Capitol in Sacramento on Aug. 28, 2014.

 Great 5 minute speech explaining the grievances, reasons and process of this movement.

Mark and leaders from Siskiyou County then delivered Declarations and Petitions from Siskiyou and Modoc Counties petitions to withdraw from the State of California to the State legislature, both houses, and the Secretary of State.

Jefferson supporters took in flyers of information about the State of Jefferson and delivered them to all Assemblymen and Senators throughout the Capitol building.

It was a great day for the 51st State of Jefferson. We have “noticed” the California State government that our intention is real. We are not going to stop or as Mark put it: We are never ever ever going to go away until we receive representation.

Judge won’t block release of water

Agriculture - California, Federal gov & land grabs, Klamath River & Dams, Salmon and fish, Water rights, Water, Resources & Quality


The Associated Press

Posted Aug. 28, 2014 @ 5:42 pm

A federal judge Wednesday denied a request by irrigation suppliers in California’s Central Valley to stop emergency water releases intended to help salmon hundreds of miles away in the Klamath Basin survive the drought.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill in Fresno, California, denied the temporary injunction sought by Westlands Water District and the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority. Westlands is the nation’s largest supplier of water for agricultural use.

The judge ruled that the potential harm to salmon from drought conditions right now outweighs the potential harm to farmers next year.
Dan O’Hanlon, attorney for the irrigation suppliers, did not immediately respond to a telephone call and email seeking comment. The bureau routinely refuses to comment on pending litigation.

At issue is water in a reservoir on the Trinity River in Northern California, which has long been shared with farmers in the Central Valley. The river is the main tributary of the Klamath River, where sharing scarce water between fish and farms has long been a tough balancing act marked by lawsuits and political battles.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation ordered the emergency releases to prevent a repeat of a massive fish kill in 2002. The agency has said the salmon releases were not expected to reduce the amount of water exported to the Sacramento River this year, but would likely mean less water stored for next year.

Indian tribes that depend on the salmon for subsistence, ceremonial and commercial fisheries had pressed the bureau to reverse an earlier decision to only release more water once significant numbers of fish began to die.

“The court again recognized the scientific basis for the supplemental releases, and the best decision was made for the resource and the fishery,” said Susan Masten, vice chairwoman of the Yurok Tribe. “Klamath (Basin) water is meant to support Klamath River fish, not industrial agriculture in the Central Valley.”

In his ruling, O’Neill cited a statement from tribal fisheries consultant Joshua Strange that the extra water was needed to prevent an outbreak of disease from a parasite known as Ich, short for Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, that attacks fish crowded together in drought conditions. The parasite was the prime killer of salmon in the 2002 drought.

O’Neill noted that the fish expert for the irrigation suppliers, Charles Hanson, asserted that higher, colder flows in the Trinity would harm other protected species, such as the Western pond turtle, yellow-legged frog, and lamprey.

O’Neill has indicated that he is likely to find in favor of the irrigation suppliers on at least one of their claims in a lawsuit over last year’s releases to the Trinity, but that would not affect his findings in the current case, he wrote.

Siskiyou County seeks high court review of groundwater decision

Siskiyou County seeks high court review of groundwater decision

Pacific Legal Foundation.org

Liberty Blog

August 28, 2014Damien M. Schiff

Last month, the Sacramento Superior Court issued a decision in Environmental Law Foundation v. State Water Resources Control Board, holding among other things that Siskiyou County cannot issue any new well permits unless it assesses the impacts of new groundwater withdrawals on the Scott River. The decision is the first of a California court holding that the common law public trust doctrine extends, under any circumstance, to groundwater extraction.
This week, the County filed an original writ in the California Supreme Court asking for immediate review of the trial court’s decision. Although such direct review is generally not granted, the California Supreme Court has often agreed to such review of cases presenting issues concerning water rights and the public trust doctrine (for example, such review was granted in the Court’s leading public trust doctrine decision, National Audubon Society v. Superior Court). For the high court to address and definitively resolve the public trust doctrine’s relationship to groundwater would undoubtedly have a significant impact on the Legislature’s debate over whether to enact a new regulatory regime for groundwater extraction.

Emergency closures of Klamath National Forest

FIRES, Forestry & USFS

Yreka, CA—Roads, trails and lands within and adjacent to the Happy Camp and July complexes, as well as the Beaver Fire, are closed to protect public and firefighter safety. This includes those sections of the Pacific Crest Trail within closure areas.

Approximately 75 percent of the 1.7 million acre Klamath National Forest remains open to forest adventures.

These temporary closures are meant to protect the safety of everyone during current wildfire suppression efforts. It is unsafe to be near wildfires due to unpredictable changes in wind, rolling fire debris, poor visibility and narrow roads busy with emergency vehicle traffic. Only fire personnel are allowed to go into or be upon National Forest land within closed areas. Forest visitors are encouraged to seek alternative destinations.

With fall on the horizon and this year’s hunting seasons just getting started, hunters and other recreationists should be aware of areas affected by these closure orders. Maps and descriptions of closed areas are available at Klamath National Forest offices in Yreka, Fort Jones, Happy Camp and Macdoel, CA; as well as online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/klamath/alerts-notices.

Fire Area Closure Orders have also required closure of some Klamath National Forest campgrounds and trailheads. Campgrounds closed by fire are:

• Grinder Campground
• Curly Jack Campground
• Fort Goff Campground
• Indian Scotty Campground and Group Camp
• Norcross Trailhead and Campground
• Sulphur Springs Campground
• Lovers Camp Campground
• Beaver Creek Campground
• Mule Bridge Trailhead and Campground
• Idlewild Campground
The remaining 30 Klamath National Forest Campgrounds continue to be open to campers.

The ranger district office nearest your destination will best serve as a source for information in planning a recreation adventure on the Klamath National Forest. Hunter-related information is also available on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife website at https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Hunting.

Forest users should also be aware of fire-use restrictions presently in effect. Using a campfire or stove fire outside of developed campgrounds, picnic areas and signed camp fire use areas is prohibited by the Forest Order found online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/klamath/alerts-notices/?aid=23345. Portable stoves using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel are allowed with a valid California campfire permit. Fire restrictions also affect the use of generators and chain saws. Check with local National Forest offices for specific regulations.
Following are Forest office phone numbers:
• Klamath National Forest Headquarters: 530-842-6131
• Goosenest Ranger District: 530-398-4391
• Happy Camp/Oak Knoll Ranger District: 530-398-4391
• Salmon/Scott River Ranger District: 530-468-5351
California is in the midst of a very active wildfire season. Record low levels of snowfall coupled with the ongoing drought have left the state vulnerable to catastrophic wildland fires. A high percentage of wildfire starts in California are human caused. Human-caused fires are preventable—and are therefore the target of a state wide fire prevention campaign.

One of the goals of the One Less Spark, One Less Wildfire campaign is to increase public awareness about unwanted wildfires. Check trailer safety chains to ensure they are not dragging on the pavement—generating a trail of sparks along the highway. Check chains periodically during a trip. Checking brakes and wheel bearings is equally important. Find additional useful fire safety tips at http://www.preventwildfireca.org/

Published in Siskiyou Daily News, Yreka, CA

We still have a bunch of fire personnel and equipment driving by our house as they change shifts each morning and evening on the White’s Fire. Just saw a Forest Service lowboy go by with an excavator, then several engines and two buses of firefighters. Sure will be happy, when the fires are out.
The last few mornings have been nice to wake up with a bit of clear skies. The thick smoky days are extremely exhausting. “Thank you” signs have gone up letting those fighting the fire know they are appreciated.
But, now is the time when people start complaining about how the fire is fought, tactics and cost. I am not going to go there, but will go back 30 years to what became fashionable “save the spotted owl” and “save the trees” philosophies.
It is this “save” everything idea that is destroying the environment. Experiments designating endangered species habitat have failed both the animals and the environment and must be stopped. Forests are so over-thick that they are not natural. Through lawsuits, Greenies have stopped timber harvests in the Beaver Fire and other areas and now thousands of acres are burning and the nasty carbon and smoke polluting the skies is worse than anything from vehicle engines – that the State of California are now over-regulating.
The real problem lies in society believing the Greenies. For over 40 years, the Greenies have preached “save the environment.” This created a lack of practical management, which has led to this utter senseless destruction. Whether you like the look of logging or not, cutting down trees and removing them with equipment doesn’t cause this kind of destruction and death to wild animals. I learned that a herd of elk was burned over and Cal-Wild had to go in and kill the ones that survived the inferno, but were suffering. The “save” everything regulations are murdering wild animals.
Logging opens up the forest and allows for the brush that deer and elk thrive on and those open spaces actually help stop wildfire. And we have learned that logging certainly doesn’t affect spotted owl populations.
The Forest Service and other federal and state agencies should not allow themselves to be influenced by thousands of postcards sent by Greenie worshipers regarding our local lands. Fraudulent science is believed by people, who are led by their fashionable nose to save everything. Yes, there is a disconnect, when you do not really live on the land. Rural folks must be able to make the decisions locally. The time has come for sanity. The time has come for the 51st State of Jefferson, which would be a very prosperous state as it actively manages forests and resources instead of destroying them.
Scott Valley Protect Our Water will not hold a meeting this month. Instead supporters are invited to participate in the presentation and submission of Siskiyou and Modoc Counties Declaration and Petition to withdraw from the State of California this Thurs. Aug. 28, 2014. We are meeting on the West steps of the Capitol in Sacramento at 2 p.m. Call me if you would like to join the car pooling group at 530-467-3515.
We do mean business. Burning up our forests is not acceptable. Governing must be brought back to the local communities and counties.
POW held a splatter board donation drawing for a Hellgate Jet boat trip and Pat Ellis of Fort Jones won. Congratulations.
Republican BBQ
The Siskiyou County Republican Women held a drawing for a BBQ at the Republican booth at the fair and I forgot to announce that Michelle Rush of Greenview won that nice prize. Congrats Michelle.
No to SB 53
A dangerous Senate Bill for gun owners has passed both the California Assembly and the Senate, so it is headed for Governor Jerry Brown’s desk for signing. Senate Bill 53 by Senator Kevin de Leon a Democrat from Los Angeles will require Californians to obtain permission and then purchase a permit from the Department of Justice before buying ammunition for their firearms. This is a huge infringement on Second Amendment rights.
If signed into law by Governor Brown, SB 53 will demand that all ammo purchased must be with a dealer face-to-face. Each purchase will be recorded, including a fingerprint and address. These records will also be open to public scrutiny. The bill also states that California residents will not be allowed to purchase ammo over the internet and authorized ammunition vendors in other states will likely not risk selling to anyone from California.
There is a chance that Governor Brown will NOT sign SB 53.
To protect your right to purchase ammunition call Governor Brown immediately and ask for a veto on SB 53. Call 916-445-2841 or fax 916- 558-3160.

Federal judge says waiting period is unconstitutional in some cases

2nd Amendment rights

Court: It can take too long to get a gun in California

The Second Amendments extends to all fifty States, regardless of what the politicians and special interests say. In Illinois crime has gone done thanks to the ability, finally, of concealed carry in the State. States that have strict Second Amendment enforcement has fewer crimes. New York and other cities that use government to steal weapons, have more crime—and many honest citizens are forced to break the law to protect themselves.

In California, the politicos tried to hold up the delivery of guns to honest citizens—criminals never have a background check or waiting period. Now a court has told our confused Guv Brown he must enforce the Second Amendment, like it or not.

The 10-day waiting periods “impermissibly violate the Second Amendment,” the decision says. The ruling applies to those who already lawfully possess a firearm as confirmed in the Automated Firearms System; to those who possess a valid “carry concealed weapon” license; and to those who possess a valid certificate of eligibility, the ruling says.”

Court: It can take too long to get a gun in California

Central Valley Business Times, 8/25/14

•  Federal judge says waiting period is unconstitutional in some cases

•  “It is expressing no opinion on the constitutionality of the 10-day waiting period in general”
California’s 10-day waiting period for gun purchases is unconstitutional in some cases, according to a ruling by Senior District Judge Anthony Ishii of the U.S. District Court in Sacramento.

The waiting period was challenged by California gun owners Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs, as well as two gun rights groups, the Calguns Foundation and Second Amendment Foundation.

The 10-day waiting periods “impermissibly violate the Second Amendment,” the decision says. The ruling applies to those who already lawfully possess a firearm as confirmed in the Automated Firearms System; to those who possess a valid “carry concealed weapon” license; and to those who possess a valid certificate of eligibility, the ruling says.

It also says the waiting period may be constitutional in some cases. “Given the nature of the challenges made, the Court emphasizes that it is expressing no opinion on the constitutionality of the 10-day waiting period in general or as applied to first time California firearms purchasers,” Mr. Ishii says.

“This is a great win for Second Amendment civil rights and common sense,” says Jeff Silvester, the named individual plaintiff. “I couldn’t be happier with how this case turned out.”

Under the court order, the California Department of Justice must change its systems to accommodate the unobstructed release of guns to gun buyers who pass a background check and possess a California license to carry a handgun, or who hold a “certificate of eligibility” issued by the DOJ and already possess at least one firearm known to the state.

“We are happy that Second Amendment rights are being acknowledged and protected by our courts,” said Donald Kilmer, lead attorney for the plaintiffs.

Attorneys Victor Otten of Torrance and Jason Davis of Mission Viejo were co-counsel for the plaintiffs.
