Fish disease prompts river flushing

Air, Climate & Weather, California water, Endangered Species Act, Federal gov & land grabs, Hypocrisy, Klamath River & Dams, Salmon and fish, Trinity County, Water, Resources & Quality

PNP comment: While it is commendable to want to help inland resident trout, low summer flows are the typical type of summer environment they live in — and do survive. Anyone claiming there is a need to artificially pulse the rivers — in hot August and September — are buying into the lie that it helps salmon.

It actually targets and stimulates the salmon that are happily playing in the ocean to start swimming inland, when there is not sufficient water flows for them. (Pulsing artificially suggests that the autumn rains have arrived  — of which they have not!)

So the salmon will begin swimming up river, when the trouts’ disease and the back-to-normal low water flows will greatly endanger the lives of the salmon. What a bunch of disgusting bunk and fraudulent science pulsing truly is. Why would anyone want to bring the salmon up river before the real autumn rains naturally raise the water flows? — Editor Liz Bowen

 

By Damon Arthur of the Redding Record Searchlight

Posted: Yesterday 6:58 p.m.

To prevent an outbreak of a deadly fish-killing disease, federal officials plan to begin tripling the amount of water flowing out of Lewiston Dam and into the Trinity River.

Starting Thursday, the amount of water coming out of Lewiston Dam will increase from 450 cubic-feet per second to about 1,300 cfs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which operates the dam.

The Trinity River flows into the Klamath River and the higher flows in the Trinity are meant to aid salmon and trout in the Klamath.

Federal officials and others are worried about an outbreak of a disease called ich, which spreads among fish crowded into slow-moving pools of warm water in the river. The higher flows from the Trinity are supposed to flush out the lower Klamath with cooler water and reduce crowding among the fish.

A small number of fish have become infected in “extremely warm water” in the Klamath, said Michael Belchik, a senior fisheries biologist for the Yurok Tribe, which is based on the Klamath River.

An ich outbreak in 2002 killed some 35,000 salmon and steelhead trout in the river.

“We take this threat to our fish very seriously, and we’re looking at every option to protect our fish,” said Thomas P. O’Rourke, Yurok Tribe chairman. “We don’t want to go through another catastrophe like the fish kill in 2002, and we will do anything we can to avoid that outcome this year.”

The Klamath Fish Health Assessment Team, which monitors fish fitness in the river, rated danger in the stream on Wednesday at “yellow” because of unfavorable physical and chemical conditions in the stream.

There are four “levels of readiness,” for the river, starting at green, the lowest level and best conditions for fish. Levels increase to yellow, orange and red, which means a fish kill is imminent or underway, according to the team’s website.

During the past several years of warm summer weather and drought, the higher releases from Lewiston Dam have been an annual event in August and September.

This year’s higher flows, which could go as high as 3,500 cfs, are expected to last until late September.

David Coxey, general manager of the Bella Vista Water District in Redding, said sending more water down the Trinity River means there will be less water for cities and agriculture in the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.

Nearly all the municipal water districts in the Redding area get water through the bureau.

“It’s disheartening how our supply reliability continues to erode,” Coxey said.

There is also less hydropower generated when more water is sent down the Trinity River, Coxey said.

Water is shipped via large pipes from Lewiston Lake to Whiskeytown Lake, where it is used to also generate power at the Carr Powerhouse. The water is then shipped by pipe again from Whiskeytown to Keswick Reservoir, where power is generated again at the Spring Creek Powerhouse.

Higher flows into the Trinity and Klamath rivers also ultimately mean less water flowing into the Sacramento River to aid endangered winter-run chinook salmon that spawn in the river in Redding, Coxey said.

“This is a discouraging decision that further hurts the salmon over here,” he said.

County Board Calls Patriots Cop Killers

CORRUPTION, Trinity County

Posted on January 14, 2014 by Tad Cronn

GodfatherPolitics.com

In Trinity County, California, a rural area with one traffic light, no freeways and less than 14,000 population according to the Census, the community may be small but the politics get just as nasty and underhanded as in any big city.

A local group of Patriot activists has been wrestling with the County Board of Supervisors over a range of issues, culminating in a citizen-driven effort to recall the board’s five members and place voter initiatives on the ballot.

In response, the Board of Supervisors did what every responsible political body does when its constituency exercises its constitutional right to petition for a redress of grievances — it sued the upstarts and publicly called them cop killers.

On January 5, the Trinity board sent out a press release justifying its actions against the citizens group, saying that the activists were wasting public funds, lying to the public and just generally behaving in an insane manner.

“The sane and rational members” of the community, as Supervisor Judy Morris referred to the board and its staff, then tossed out this gem:

“There is also broad concern about the overall intention of many of the members of the group, including some who have identified themselves as “sovereign citizens,” a group whose members nationwide hold the belief that there is no government and refuse to participate in long standing systems including everything from not having a driver’s license to creating their own internal militia structure.  Members of sovereign citizen groups have been convicted of killing law enforcement officers in more than one incident nationally over the last several years.

“According to Supervisor Debra Chapman, “This group of people will take down anyone who disagrees with them at any moment, through lawsuits, verbally or by other means.  They’re dangerous.” [Emphasis added.]

(Hmm. Couldn’t be any projection on the supervisor’s part, could there?)

In an email, the Patriots group responded to the accusation, saying, “We are unaware of any sovereign citizens within our group or in Trinity County. Not only do we support local law enforcement but many of the group have served on the Sheriff’s public safety and coordination advisory team. Our initiatives actually support the Sheriff and his department far more than the present policies of the board.  One of the initiatives restores priority funding for law enforcement which under the present funding policies of the board leaves the Sheriff’s department dangerously understaffed.”

The group went to court this week in the lawsuits brought by the supervisors over the initiatives. Among other things, the county is asking for legal costs, most of which it created itself.

(This is the famed legal tactic known in Latin as tincidunt bibendum ipsum, or “stop hitting yourself.”)

According to the citizen activists, the county government has a history of bossing around residents who try to get information the board doesn’t want made public, such as county-paid credit card statements. After filing a California open record act request, the county still refused to provide the statements, claiming it would be too burdensome, activists say.

Other bureaucratic tricks have been used to foil efforts to hold the county government accountable to voters.

According to Kay Graves, who is involved in the initiatives effort, four of five recall drives against the board were nullified in December because the county did not deliver letters acknowledging there were adequate signatures on the recall petitions until it was too late for activists to publish the required notice in the county’s only paper of record.

When the group found in the California elections code that a public posting of such a notice was sufficient, they posted the notices. However, the county registrar/clerk/recorder refused to recognize the public posting and said the notices were not published on time.

The Trinity Gazette, a local publication put out by activists, reported on an October board meeting in which editor Diane Richards, who is also involved in the initiative lawsuits, was escorted out by a deputy for bringing up the Fourth Amendment during the public comments portion of a hearing about using “administrative warrants” to increase municipal code enforcement on private property.

Suffice it to say that Trinity County politics are complicated.

There may be a court ruling in the initiative lawsuits as early as today.

Regardless of the court’s decision and however the Board of Supervisors tries to spin its bullying of citizens whose only “crime” is expecting the government to behave responsibly, there is clearly a serious problem when a local elected board behaves like a petty monarchy trying to crush the peasant revolt.

It’s different in some other countries, but in America, government’s purpose — its primary reason for existing at all — is to protect the rights of its citizens, not to tell citizens what rights they may exercise.

BELOW COMMENTS FROM COMMUNITY MEMBER IN ATTENDANCE:

Didn’t you also allege that your 1st Amendment Rights were violated?

{This entire section has to do with paragraph 3.  I don’t want to type what is wrong with paragraph 3…because it-is-all-wrong!}

“On the date in question, the Chair, Debra Chapman, opened the meeting and solicited public comment on the issue of adopting the manual.

No, that is not what the Chair said or did.  Chair did not solicit public comment on adopting the manual until the afternoon and not at the opening of the meeting.  Below is the text from the agenda on public comment.   They do NOT write that you cannot speak on something that is on the agenda…they just say that while you are speaking.  So even if you DID mention the manual (which you did not) they cannot stop you.  Their instruction here is just on BOS jurisdiction.

PUBLIC COMMENT This time is for information from the public. Comments are limited to three minutes and must pertain to matters within the jurisdiction of this Board. No action or discussion will be conducted on matters presented at this time. When addressing the Board, please state your name for the record prior to providing your comments. Address the Board as whole through the Chair.

Fiscal Impact: No fiscal impact.

There was no ‘disorder to the meeting’ until Debra Chapman brought disorder to the meeting.  (BTW I think it was right after you spoke another woman spoke about the 4th amendment and didn’t stop when Chapman said to and was not ‘removed.  You will have to check the DVD on that).  If she wanted to bring order to the meeting, Chapman should have thrown herself out!

You were” removed” by an armed peace officer at the direction of Debra Chapman at about 1 minute 30 seconds into you 3 minute public comment.  (Have to check the DVD on that also).  So there was ‘disorder for…what 45 seconds…caused by Chapman…and you were forced to leave?  B—- runs a tight ship!!

Prentice has zero proof that they would have allowed you to make that comment in the afternoon (during the code manual issue).   Your statement was not on the code manual and the comment on issues must pertain to the issue. (So, would they have said that it wasn’t about the code manual and stopped you?)  Also, the DVD proves that your comment, that you almost made in the morning public comment, and the comment that you did make in the afternoon code manual issue were not the same.

Also, at the time of public comment on the code manual, we were instructed by the chair “Please don’t use your 3 minutes to grand stand.  We are all aware what the 4th Amendment says”.  So we told not to speak about the 4th amendment in the morning public comment (and shown that we could be removed by an armed peace officer if we did) and then instructed NOT to speak about it when the code manual issue came up.

Since paragraph 3 is wrong and bull; the last line is also wrong and bull…–

Trinity County, recall proponent trade barbs

CORRUPTION, Hypocrisy, Trinity County

 

Trinity County supervisors took an unusual step late Sunday night, with all five members signing on to a lengthy statement expressing concern about the fiscal effect recall efforts against them are having on the county.
The board didn’t stop there, however, and raised safety concerns, claiming some of the proponents identify themselves as “sovereign citizens.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigations classifies “sovereign citizens” as an extremist anti-government group and part of a domestic terrorist movement.

An attorney representing Diane Richards, one of the most vocal recall proponents, today condemned the “offensive” statement, accusing supervisors of throwing around shaming labels against six women involved in the recall attempt.

“What evidence do they have to associate these people with the sovereign citizen movement? What verifiable incidents can they point to?” asked an agitated William Abbott, a commercial litigator in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. “These statements are libelous and way out of bounds for elected officials to be making.

“In a current context, saying someone is a member of a terrorist movement, that to me is the modern equivalent of blood libel,” he said, also drawing parallels to anti-communism during the Cold War. “If they want to meet a terrorist, I can tell them where they can go, but it ain’t going to be Trinity County.”

All five supervisors, Judy Pflueger, Judy Morris, Karl Fisher, Debra Chapman and John Fenley are quoted in the statement. They complain the small “fringe group” has filed numerous lawsuits against the county and eight recall attempts against officials within the past year.

“Our county’s business priorities and financial needs are being sacrificed to manage this insanity,” Morris said in the statement. “The sane and rational members of our community need to start taking action or there could be serious consequences for the future of this county.”

It wasn’t clear when or where supervisors agreed to release the letter. California’s open meeting law forbids elected officials from meeting without notice to the public.

Pflueger did not return requests for comment.

Richards said it is true she has been behind recall attempts against county supervisors, but she had nothing to do with organizing failed recall efforts against the district attorney, sheriff and clerk-recorder/assessor.

She said she has no intent to let up on her efforts to recall the entire board and would fight the county in court.

“We are trying to get our hearing expedited. If the judge does not rule in our favor, we will go get the signatures again,” she said.
One of her contentions is that the county has been giving her the run-around for a year over a records request she made for an itemized list of how the employees are using county-issued credit cards. She claims the monthly statements range between $25,000 and $50,000.

Time after time, she has been told itemizing the statement would be too burdensome, she said.

“They expect low-income people living in the county to pay for all of their ‘Yeses,’” said Diana Sheen, a supporter of the recall attempts.

Abbott also was in Weaverville to file special motions to prevent the county from recovering attorney fees from his client.
He contends the county has no basis to recover attorney fees where the case deals with recall petitions and ballot initiatives.

The county has sued Richards in an effort to block two initiatives from getting on the June ballot. Those initiatives would overhaul and downsize government.

Richards acknowledged a special recall election could cost the county about $30,000, and she is aware that Pflueger and Chapman are going to be up for re-election in June.

But she insists the money on a special election would be well spent.

“There is a quote from George Washington … when they do not do the job, you must recall them,” she said. “We do not want them to run at all. They are not holding up to their fiduciary duties. We don’t want any chance of them being back.”

‘The sane and rational members of our community need to start taking action’

| 8 Comments

So says Trinity County Supervisor Judy Morris in a press statement released this morning by all of the county’s supervisors attacking the recent recall drive and other local efforts by a group of self-described constitutionalists.

The supervisors complain the “fringe group” has filed multiple lawsuits, and the costs of defending them have sapped vital resources from the cash-strapped county. Of course, at least one of those lawsuits was filed by the county to block ballot measures filed by the same folks, but the county officials said the inevitable costs of defending those unconstitutional measures made it necessary.

Anyway, read the whole thing. I don’t recall seeing quite such a display of frustration from local politicians.

— UPDATE —

For those who’ve had trouble reading the link, here’s the whole thing:
Board Concerned About Escalating Costs of Fringe Group’s Activity

Weaverville, CA – January 5, 2014 – The Trinity County Board of Supervisors is unanimously expressing concerns about the financial impact of a small “fringe group” that has filed multiple lawsuits against the County and eight unsuccessful recall attempts against elected officials within the last year. To pay the legal fees required to address this ongoing activity, the County must reallocate limited taxpayer dollars that should be devoted to basic services for the public.

“Our County’s business priorities and financial needs are being sacrificed to manage this insanity,” said Supervisor Judy Morris, “The sane and rational members of our community need to start taking action or there could be serious consequences for the future of this county.”

The validity of claims being made is also a concern for board members.

“They can’t keep their facts straight and I’m not sure whether they’re lying on purpose or they just don’t get it,” said Supervisor John Fenley, who represents the southern part of the county, “One example of many is that the board passed a resolution that eliminates the 5% longevity pay increases and travel stipends for department heads, and they turn around and say we’re increasing salaries by 5% every six months, it’s Orwellian.”

There is also broad concern about the overall intention of many of the members of the group, including some who have identified themselves as “sovereign citizens,” a group whose members nationwide hold the belief that there is no government and refuse to participate in long standing systems including everything from not having a driver’s license to creating their own internal militia structure. Members of sovereign citizen groups have been convicted of killing law enforcement officers in more than one incident nationally over the last several years.

According to Supervisor Debra Chapman, “This group of people will take down anyone who disagrees with them at any moment, through lawsuits, verbally or by other means. They’re dangerous.”

Karl Fisher, who represents Hayfork and Douglas City, also reiterated the financial implications of some of the group’s recent activity, “I think we can all agree that wasting taxpayer money on a recall-induced election cycle now when there is a general election coming up in June is ludicrous. Anyone promoting that has no business being in business.”

Board members are encouraging community members to connect with their own Board members or County Administration directly for clarification of any issues being discussed and also to attend public meetings.

Supervisor Judy Pflueger also wants the public to know what they should expect to see when attending a Board meeting, “When you see these folks in action yelling and holding signs calling us Nazis, you get a pretty quick understanding of their lack of good will and their divisive intent.”
