6th county in Jefferson is official

JEFFERSON DECLARATION, Jefferson News Service, Media, State of Jefferson

Trinity Gazette

July 2014

By Liz Bowen, Jefferson News Service.com

YUBA CITY – Two counties made it official this past month and have joined the State of Jefferson movement making a total of six counties in Northern California that desire to create the 51st State in the USA.

It was Tuesday, July 22nd when the Sutter County Board of Supervisors approved a “resolution supporting the Declaration and Petition to the California State Legislature for redress from lack of representation and possible formation of a new State of Jefferson.” The vote was 5-0.

Dave Bryan, leader of the Jefferson Committee in the Sutter area, said he was encouraged by the “hearty response” from the Sutter Supervisors. “I applaud their courageous leadership and thank God that our leaders are not content with the status quo!”

Supervisor James Gallagher led the charge echoing the grievances of “the people” and the current poor state of affairs in California. The other supervisors each shared their frustration with the lack of equal voice at the capital level. Board Chairman Stan Cleveland supported the Jefferson effort from the beginning and worked to address any concerns.

Then on July 15, 2014, the Tehama County Supervisors voted 5-0 approving the “Declaration and Petition” to withdraw from the State of California making it the fifth county to officially join the new Jefferson State movement. The supervisors were following up on an approved motion that sent the ultimate decision on splitting from California to the voters of Tehama County. And on June 3rd, during the Primary Election, Tehama voters did pass Measure A with a 56 percent approval.

Tom Knorr, leader of the Tehama Jefferson Declaration Committee, said he was pleased the “supervisors stuck with their promise” and made the vote unanimous. “We achieved something important. People are getting motivated for the State of Jefferson,” he said.

Because the supervisors placed the Measure on the ballot, the Tehama Jefferson Committee found itself in a campaign with little funding and only a few months before the election. It was a grass roots effort to educate the public, but there were many good and enthusiastic supporters willing to put in time and effort.

Knorr said the committee became quite creative and even built a huge float for the Red Bluff Rodeo Parade, in April that depicted a sinking ship called “California” burdened with heavy debt. A life boat was titled “State of Jefferson”; and the float was shared with other events and counties.
It was just 10 months ago, when a fledging grass roots group approached the Siskiyou County Supervisors, at first, asking for a resolution to split from California. But on Sept. 3, 2013, Siskiyou County Supervisors approved a “Declaration” to withdraw from California with a 4-1 vote. Modoc, Glenn and Yuba Supervisors then took the plunge and approved the Declaration.

Mark Baird, spokesman for the Jefferson Declaration Committee,
said the “voice of the people has been heard” and welcomed Sutter and Yuba Counties. “It’s a great day for the State of Jefferson,” he said.

Since last September, Baird has been on a speaking tour of Town Halls in various counties and to county boards of supervisors. Lately, meetings and committees have sprung up in the southern part of a would-be Jefferson. Placer and El Dorado have held Town Halls and committees were just recently organized in Nevada and Plumas Counties with Town Halls being organized.

Lake County was the most recent Town Hall on July 11, 2014, where over 125 interested people showed up. Truman and Sheryl Bernal have been leading the Lake County Jefferson project and were pleased with the enthusiasm and expansion of their committee. Truman said they now have several active businesses helping to gather “support statement” signatures that will be given to the Lake County Supervisors — when the time is right.

Baird spoke to the Sutter County Supervisors on July 8th along with a dozen others and the room was packed with supporters. The supervisors discussed the Declaration and decided to write a “resolution” and did indeed become the sixth county to agree that California is too big and lacks safe government.

Currently, the list of active Jefferson Declaration County Committees now includes: Siskiyou, Modoc, Glenn, Yuba, Tehama, Sutter, Butte, Shasta, Lake, Placer, Plumas, El Dorado, Nevada, Lassen, Del Norte and Trinity. Anyone who would like to support the cause can contact the Committee leaders in each county, which are found on the county pages on the website: JeffersonDeclaration.net.

The website is a blog and is updated daily, so check it out for more information, progress of various counties and dates for Town Hall meetings.

Because Baird and other speakers have been asked a variety of questions over and over again, a group of short youtube videos have been put together, where Baird provides the practical and up-front answers. They are titled: Question Mark? So far 16 of these two to three minute videos have been posted on the Jefferson Declaration.net website and can be found at the top page/tab called: QUESTIONS.
Three county committees in Butte, Placer and Del Norte, have put together extensive websites with financial information along with additional questions and answers. They are well worth checking out. They are: www.JeffersonButte.com; www.placerjeffersonstate.net/; and www.delnortejefferson.net.

Counties can also be found on facebook by putting in the county name and then “for the State of Jefferson.” There is also “Jefferson State News” on facebook with up-to-date info, including Town Hall dates and other events.
A weekly hour-long talk show “Jefferson State of Mine” can be found on Redding’s KNCR 1460 AM every Saturday morning at 8 a.m. with hosts Red Smith and Kayla Brown. For archived shows on the web, go to: kncr1460.com or listen to it stream live.

News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: Recently, local rancher Richard Marshal attended a meeting of the Auburn Dam Council down by Sacramento and learned that the council supports more water storage throughout the state including keeping the Klamath Dams in place.

“The Auburn Dam Council supports the water storage and flood control managed by the Klamath dams,” said Marshall, who also heard Congressman Tom McClintock speak about the most recent Task Force demanding removal of the Klamath dams. McClintock discussed Oregon Senator Ron Wyden’s Task Force that is pushing for the destruction of the Klamath dams; and McClintock said Wyden will never find enough federal funds to pay for Klamath dam removal.

McClintock and California District 1 Congressman Doug LaMalfa sit on the House Natural Resources Committee and both have said that no funding will be coming from the House of Representatives to the Senate for Klamath dam removal. It is the House that appropriates monies, so Wyden’s U.S. Senate Bill will likely be left sitting high and dry.

Both California Congressmen are strongly opposed to wasting money on Klamath dam removal.

Siskiyou County citizens voted in 2010 that they were against Klamath dam removal. The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors have sent letters to Washington D.C. to Wyden’s Task Force and the House Natural Resources Committee showing significant science and reasons the well-maintained hydro-electric Klamath dams benefit the Klamath River Basin.

With the vocal good support for keeping the dams, Marshall was also pleased to hear that the Auburn Dam Council is also supporting saving the Klamath dams. “California needs more reservoirs for water storage, not less,” said Marshall.

Utah demands feds relinquish public lands to the state

News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: Earlier this month, Utah Representative Ken Ivory spoke in Grants Pass, Oregon about statehood and demanding the federal government relinquish public lands to states.

In 2012, Representative Ivory sponsored Utah legislation H.B. 148, which asserted that the federal government must grant its federal lands to the State of Utah. The legislation titled, “The Utah Transfer of Public Lands Act” passed the Senate and was signed into law by the governor. The feds have until December 31, 2014 to transfer the lands that should have been granted to Utah upon statehood. That was back in 1896.

Under the U.S. Constitution, Article four, the federal government is expected to relinquish the public lands to states at statehood. This process occurred East of the Rockies, but not in the Western states.

Ivory said each state is a sacred sovereign and that “States do not have to yield to the federal government.” For 200 years, Congress recognized its duty to dispose of the public lands at statehood. It wasn’t until 1976 that Congress passed the Federal Land Policy Management Act declaring it was their new “policy to retain these lands in federal ownership.”

However, in 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that Congress doesn’t have the authority to change ‘the uniquely sovereign character’ of a state’s admission into the Union, particularly “where virtually all of a state’s public lands are a stake.”

Ninety percent of Illinois was managed by the feds, until the state fought for those lands. “This has been done before,” said Ivory, adding, “All it takes is knowledge and courage.”

As a result of the meeting, a group in Oregon will be pursuing the right demanding federal lands must be relinquished to the state.

News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: The Jefferson Declaration Committee was cheering yesterday as a fifth county joined the State of Jefferson project.

 

“It is a great day for the State of Jefferson,” said spokesman Mark Baird. “The great County of Tehama approved Measure A in the Primary Election on June 3rd. Tehama citizens approved the Measure with a 55 percent vote showing they favor less government involvement in their lives.”

 

Tehama now joins the Counties of Modoc, Glenn, Yuba and Siskiyou in their Declaration to withdraw from the State of California.

 

But two other measures lost – one in Siskiyou and one in Del Norte, which has caused confusion.

 

Del Norte County Supervisors also placed a Measure A on the ballot for the voters to decide about splitting from California. Then opposition from the SEIU and AFL-CIO Unions spent over $40,000 dollars in a media campaign against the Declaration to withdraw from California. Measure A lost in Del Norte County with only 41 percent of the vote. 

 

Yet, the most difficult to understand is the Jefferson Republic Territory Measure C in Siskiyou County, which also lost by 41 percent of the vote — and national media picked up on the irony.

 

“Don’t be confused by the media’s misstatements about Siskiyou County,” said Jefferson Spokesman Baird. “The failure of Measure C and its Territory Special District has absolutely nothing to do with the State of Jefferson. Measure C was an attempt to hijack the support of the State of Jefferson — an attempt which failed, and rightly so, said Baird. The State of Jefferson is in full force. We have just added a fifth county to the growing project.”

Flight harassment by DFG Wardens on 5-6-14

News in Jefferson County from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: Wardens from the California Department of Fish and Game are stirring up concern in Scott Valley.

On Tuesday, May 6th, 2014, Quartz Valley rancher, John Menke, confronted two game wardens for buzzing his cattle. Menke was in his field, when a low-flying helicopter circled not once, but twice, which harassesd his cattle. Menke followed the helicopter to the Scott Valley Airport, where he discussed the threatening behavior with DFG Wardens Steve McDonald and Dan Beck.

McDonald reported to Menke that he is now the head Game Warden for the Siskiyou area and that Dan Beck works for him handling Quartz Valley.

Warden McDonald admitted they were surveying the creeks and irrigation diversions for possible 1600 violations. A 1600 permit is needed if an irrigator needs to improve a streambed for diversion of water into an irrigation ditch.

Menke reports that several years ago, Warden McDonald told him that he was actually looking forward to summer low-stream flows, expecting to be able to cite ranchers for Endangered Specie Act perceived threats against juvenile coho salmon.

Mark Baird, vice-president of Scott Valley Protect Our Water, is disgusted with Warden McDonald’s domineering behavior.

Baird, who is a pilot, said that it is illegal, unprofessional and unethical to fly beneath FAA minimums that may affect lives or property. “This is another example of Warden McDonald and his agency acting illegally in order to persecute local families growing food and fiber for this nation,” said Baird, who encourages all landowners to become vigilant against the over-bearing behavior of DFG.

Baird said to carry a camera or a recorder to document suspicious DFG activities and be sure to report violations to Protect Our Water and the sheriff’s office – EVERY TIME they are observed.

Baird welcomes phone calls as does Pow President Andrew Hurlimann, Vice-President Liz Bowen and Vice-President Mike Adams.

Snow surveys are zero in Siskiyou

Agriculture, Air, Climate & Weather, Jefferson News Service, Water, Resources & Quality

News in Jefferson Country

May 7, 2014

Broadcast on Buffalo Broadcasting radio stations KSYC 103.9 FM and KSIZ 102.3 FM from Yreka, CA.

 

News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: Dismal and dire describe the snowpack surveys conducted May 1st throughout the state.

Locally, the snowpack is zero. Yep, zero percent of 60 year averages. Forest Service employees completed the snow surveys in the western mountains surrounding Scott Valley in Siskiyou County.

In the Middle Boulder area west of Mt. Bolivar, there is typically 5 feet of packed snow. This year at that 6,600 elevation there is no snow.

Nearby Scott Mountain at 5,900 feet there is normally over 2 feet of snow and on May 1st, this year, there was none.

And Swampy John, behind the City of Etna on Salmon Mountain, usually boasts around 5 feet of snowpack at the 5,500 foot level. You guessed it, not a speck of snow in sight.

The snow survey is conducted throughout the state to help water managers estimate annual runoff available for hydroelectric generation, agriculture, stream flow releases, recreation and municipal water use.

Statewide the May 1st survey verifies that California is deep in a drought. The Sierra mountains held about 32 percent of average on the April 1st survey, but because of extra warm temperatures, the Sierra snowpack is down to just 18 percent of average.

The snowpack is considered California’s largest reservoir and normally provides one third of the water used by cities and farms.  As a result of the continued lack of rain and snow, most of California’s reservoirs are sitting at about 50 percent. Shasta Lake, near Redding, is at 53 percent from the top.

On April 25th, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order to strengthen the state’s ability to manage water and called on all Californians to redouble their efforts to conserve water.

CPUC’s actions may increase rates for Siskiyou Telephone customers

Jefferson News Service

News in Jefferson Country 

May 6, 2014

Broadcast by Buffalo Broadcasting radio stations KSIZ 102.3 fm and KSYC 103.9 fm, Yreka, CA.

 

CPUC’s actions may increase rates for Siskiyou Telephone customers

n  Currently, the basic rate for telephone service at Siskiyou Telephone is just $20. But, CPUC decision could see it raised to $80.

 

News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: Scott Valley, Salmon River and Klamath River country may see a gigantic increase in their Siskiyou Telephone bill, if the California Public Utilities Commission reduces or stops support funds of a special program.

The California Commission oversees a program that provides funds, which support independent rural telephone companies. But the Commission also seems to have several misunderstandings about life in rural California as commissioners have complained that perhaps people in rural areas should pay more for services in exchange for the right to live further away from cities.

If the Commission has its way, Siskiyou Telephone Company may be forced to raise its rates — double or triple. Jim Lowers, president of Siskiyou Telephone Company, is concerned. “That is just too high,” he said.

Local customers should attend a meeting that will be held by the California Public Utilities Commission this Thursday, May 8th at the Holiday Inn Express on Montague Road in Yreka. Time is 4 p.m.

Specifically, customers need to ask the Commission to continue to fund the California High Cost Fund A program. And that the economy of rural Siskiyou County is poor. A significant rate increase will affect health and safety of telephone customers.

Customers should also send pithy, specific comments to:

Public Advisor’s Office,

505 Van Ness Ave, Room 2103,

San Francisco, CA. 94102.

Yuba Co. is 4th county in State of Jefferson

JEFFERSON DECLARATION, Jefferson News Service

Yuba Board of Supervisors vote 3-1 to approve the Declaration to withdraw from the State of California on April 15, 2014.

Press Release

By Liz Bowen

Jefferson News Service.com

On April 15th, the Yuba County Board of Supervisors approved the Declaration to withdraw from the State of California with a 3 to 1 vote. A fifth supervisor was not in attendance. Leaders of the Jefferson Declaration Committee attended the Supervisors’ meeting and were ecstatic with the decision, along with a room packed full of local Jefferson supporters.

“Yuba is the fourth county in the State of Jefferson,” said Mark Baird, spokesman for the Declaration Committee. Previously, three counties approved the Declaration. They are: Siskiyou, Modoc and Glenn.

“I am so proud of all the people who spoke in favor today,” said Baird, “one lady said she wants a state that her grandchildren can be proud of and California isn’t it.”

Baird also praised Sally Rapoza, who said to the supervisors: “What harm can come from endorsing the Declaration?” That statement seemed to change a few supervisors’ minds, except one, who uttered the many-times repeated statement: It is just too hard.

And that statement brought another local citizen to the speaker stand saying, “I’m sure in 1964 that’s what ninety percent of the people thought about the Civil Rights movement.”

“I want to also thank Supervisor Andy Vasquez, who was instrumental in bringing the Declaration to the Yuba Board,” said Baird. “He has championed this cause. He is appreciated.”

And next, Baird praised God. “I thank God. This is his will,” said Baird, who added that “prayer works.”
