Ron Glynn send letter to Oregon elected officials

Op-ed

PNP comment: Ron Glynn sent this letter to Oregon Senator Wyden; Senator Jeff Merkley; Congressman Peter DeFazio.  — Editor Liz Bowen

Dear Gentlemen:

In New York City’s Central Park, there is current play production called Shakespeare In The Park which is currently putting on “Caesar”. The play has been modernized and the character playing Caesar looks like President Donald Trump. In the end of the play, Caesar is violently stabbed to death by a mob of attackers. The liberal audience is clapping and cheering as the Caesar character is murdered. Do you get it? Hundreds of Americans nightly are cheering the murder of President Trump. I challenge you to watch the scene on You Tube. This play is outrageous Nazi style propaganda put on by sick people for sick people.

 I call upon you to condemn this play.

Sincerely,

Ronald B. Glynn

Managing water under California’s broken water system – opinion

Op-ed

BLOG: Managing water under California’s broken water system

California Farm Water Coalition

California’s farm water suppliers don’t shy away from hard work. They never have-but our broken water system continues to erode their ability to do the most important part of their job- managing and delivering the water used to grow the food and fiber we all depend on. With the ever-escalating demand of more than 15 different overlapping agencies that require farm water suppliers to meet perpetually-changing regulatory processes, it’s little wonder that despite bountiful water provided by nature- scarcity and uncertainty continue to burden farms, rural communities, and even our cities.

A recent Sacramento Bee Editorial underscored the complexity of managing water under California’s broken system, claiming that not filing a form with the Department of Water Resources (DWR) has left Californians in the dark about where and how the water used to grow our food and fiber is delivered.

Comment: Angry Mob Of Anti-Trump Protestors Attack Pro-Trump Supporter At Portland Airport

Op-ed

Dear Freedom Loving Americans:

Watch the attached video to see the kind of people turning out for protests against President Trump.  These protests “breaking out” across America are not spontaneous. Left Wing forces started organizing Resistance against President Trump the day after Election. I know because I am on their email lists. Money coming from the Extremist Billionaire George Soros is paying for organization and the mobs are centrally controlled and directed where to protest. Those controlling these mobs have lots of young useful idiots to fill their ranks of protestors.  

 

The Left is making a strategic error using Viet Nam War Era Protesting tactics to an attempt to win over the Average American to side with them against President Trump. What they are doing is going to backfire on them. The Average American(Liberal, Conservative, Moderate) are not going to support violence and property destruction done by mobs of vulgar, shrieking hateful people. One of the mistakes they are doing is interfering with people’s right to move and to have free association with other people. An example of this was their effort at the Inauguration to block people from getting to see the Inauguration.

They have also been blocking traffic in large Metropolitan areas. Some liberal sitting in his car stuck in traffic and ending up being two hours late for work is not going to look to too kindly on their movement. Let’s hope the Left Wing Radicals keeps up this type of movement and that the Democratic Leaders like Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon keep supporting their activities. It will get real old for most Americans in a matter of few months.

Yours For Freedom, Liberty, and Prosperity,

Rex Cozallio: Reasons for no expansion of Cascade/Siskiyou National Monument

Federal gov & land grabs, Op-ed, Rex Cozzalio

To Siskiyou Co. Supervisors:

Subject: Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument

When the existing Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was created, extensive and adamant promises were made to the affected regional majority in opposition.   Forcibly imposed upon the affected public, the ensuing years have revealed EVERY ONE of those promises a premeditated lie:

– Ranchers with generations of vested contributions helping CREATE the biodiverse region, assured by proponents they would have continuing ability for survival, were surreptitiously regulated into extinction.

– Residents within the monument boundaries have been harassed and impeded into compelled positions of ‘willing sellers’.

– ‘Preservation and access to the public’ has instead resulted in essentially unmanaged lands made virtually inaccessible through road decommissioning and policy degraded conditions such as the dominance of invasive weed species and fire potential growth.

– ‘Untouchable’ fire policies have resulted in real world consequential added risk and threat to the lives and property of residents living in, and adjacent to, the monument borders, as evidenced during recently experienced fires.

– Promises of a vast increase in regional jobs and income that would result from ‘monument status’ in ‘exchange’ for the many livelihoods and productive regional benefits lost, has instead seen NO identifiable resulting enhancements  to ANYTHING other than the pockets of otherwise unaffected proponent NGOs and regulatory administering agencies.

Logically, the drastic expansion of the existing monument once again proposed by the same prior personally benefitting entities, using the same already established lies, can only produce the same proportional ‘expansion’ of previously experienced failures. The only reasonable explanation for an effort compounding past failure is that the real intent is for FURTHER expansion of ‘rewilding’ policy ‘executive’ imposed devastation and attrition upon the region.

Federal lands should be accessible to all Americans, and should be actively managed for multiple benefits and multiple values. Expanding the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument under the Antiquities Act would accomplish just the opposite.

We and the vast majority of Siskiyou County fought the previous intended California expansion of the Monument which originally mapped their ultimate intention for the Monument far beyond even those presently and destructively imposed.  The well documented intent goes far beyond even this incrementally oppressive agenda.  Once this irresponsible and unaccountable mandate is in place, the final stage to the original intent becomes a much easier additional step.  Therefore, even after this travesty is implemented, the battle against area attrition and loss would  not be over, instead it would only be the beginning of one even greater..

My family and I are opposed to the proposed expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.  I would hope that enough resolute public attention in opposition can be made to impede a unilateral Executive Order.  As with the special interest KHSA/KBRA/KBCA/KPFA debacle, Wyden and Merkley are once again proving themselves the facilitators of an agenda using any deceptive means against the survival of the very regions they claim to represent.  Please consider opposing the Monument expansion.

Sincerely,

Rex Cozzalio

OPINION: Learn from history … fight to keep your water

Modesto Bee

At an important meeting last week in Modesto, The Bee reported, Francisco Canela, a member of the Stanislaus County Water Advisory Committee, asked one of the state’s top water regulators a great question:

“Where’s the end game for this community? That’s our concern. We’re giving more water and more water, and we aren’t getting anything back.”

The short answer to Canela’s question is that the community will never get back any water or anything else.

Former USFS/KNF employee comments on Pony Fire

Pony Fire KNF 62016 PNP

Date: Thu, Jun 9, 2016 at 12:43 PM
Subject: Pony Fire KNF

As far as I am concerned, the forest service and the mangers of the national forest should be fired and put in prison for leaving this forest in this condition after past wildfires.  This picture tells the whole story of the forest service all over this nation and their inept management of national forests.

This Pony Fire is located in what was at one time a very productive and living forest on the Klamath National Forest.  It has always had a history of wildfires, but 20 years ago or more we had forest service personnel who cared about the forest and its health.  Today, the only thing this bunch of corrupt buffoons know is to waste their time and money with their idiotic diversity, civil rights, and any other social foolish program that some liberal fool has in mind.

Not only has this lack of management of the forest created a potential fire catastrophe, but has put hard working fire fighters at extreme risk and communities as a whole at risk for severe injury or death during these wildfire situations.  Talk about a death of a forest, you are witnessing it here in this picture.  All those dead and down snags in this picture and described by the Incident Team could have been utilized after the last fire in the area creating jobs, new homes, and other useful construction as well as rehabilitated the land, but no, we have potential for loss of life and destruction with this ongoing fire.  Simply put, the problem lies at the feet of these incompetent forest managers.  Guess what their solution to the problem will be…..we need more money….simpletons.

Be careful of Lies and Bias

Op-ed

Comment from Editor Liz Bowen

I will not give any press space to the recent Record Searchlight article that slams Siskiyou Co. Sheriff Jon Lopey.

He, like others, should be considered INNOCENT, until proven guilty.

These are nothing but lies and misdirection.

If anything, the Hmong and other pot growers, here in Siskiyou County, are intimidating their neighbors, especially the ones that have complained about their BIG pot grows.

Please realize that the marijuana criminal element wants to take over our county and will do it in any way possible.

When over 1,800 new voters registered from the UNINCORPORATED areas of Siskiyou — since April 8, 2016 — it looked suspicious to our Siskiyou Co. Clerk Colleen Setzer. She then did the appropriate thing and contacted Sheriff Lopey and then D.A. Kirk Andrus, who then contacted the state Secretary of State’s office.

The State Investigators were the LEAD on the residential checks that occurred last week, June 2-3, 2016  in Siskiyou County in the Hornbrook, Shasta Vista and McCloud areas. The sheriff sent deputies, the D.A. sent his investigators, the county sent Planning Dept. staff to check on property zoning violations.

SHOCK !!!!

They found violations and NO homes on numerous properties — just dry empty land, some with pot plantations growing.

SO, PLEASE do NOT believe everything you read in Record Searchlight.

These are dangerous and outrageous allegations against our sheriff.

Oh, also I have women friends that are down right scared because of the INTIMIDATION by some Hmong and other illegal pot growers, because they watch their property, watch them as they drive in and out of their dirt roads.

I am making a pretty strong statement here:

A NEW criminal-marijuana-growing-element started moving into Siskiyou two years ago.

They are determined to destroy agriculture and replace it with marijuana.

They are determined to change our way of life.

They are determined to destroy any semblance of a government that stands on the CONSTITUTION.

Remember, under the U.S. Constitution we all have RIGHTS.  But your right stops, when you infringe on my property and my rights !!!

Luckily, we the people passed Measures T and U, so Sheriff Lopey and D.A. Andrus can do their jobs of enforcement.

But it looks like we have brought down the wrath of hell for standing for the Constitution and what is right.

Turning Point for Siskiyou County

Elections, Op-ed

PNP comment: We totally agree with Michael Stapleton. We also recommend a “YES” on Measures S for the new jail and R for a $5, per parcel with house on it, for equipment for search, rescue and emergency volunteers. — Editor Liz Bowen

Letter sent to the Editor of the Siskiyou Daily News:

On Tuesday June 7th, the citizens of Siskiyou County have an important decision to make in voting for Measures “T” and “U”.  Voting “YES” for these measures will allow the County to maintain local control over the expanding marijuana industry in Siskiyou County and yet would generously allow 12 marijuana plants per household for legitimate “medical marijuana” use.

I spent 32 years living in Humboldt County and sadly watched that county over the years change from a nice place to raise you kids with working families in the ranching, timber, and fishing industries.  Now the county is overrun with individuals, many moving in from other areas, who would rather “grow for a living” rather than “work for a living”.  The marijuana industry also attracted other drugs such a methamphetamine and heroin to Humboldt County with drug dealing at times out of control.  The outdoor marijuana grows there have diverted water from  important fish spawning streams, drastically changed formally remote pristine open country with development, and destroyed neighborhoods.  Crime increased dramatically and drug related murders are a frequent occurrence.  It is common knowledge in Humboldt County that the “medical marijuana 215 permits” are widely abused to commercially grow marijuana for sale and it is beyond enforcement in Humboldt County.  All it takes is roughly a $100 fee to have a “Pot Doc” write you a medical marijuana prescription over in Humboldt County to get your “license” to grow marijuana.

Siskiyou County is a very special place to live. Please do not let it be destroyed by the marijuana industry.  Its wide open spaces and untrampled remote areas are treasured by many that live here.  We don’t want our hillsides bulldozed to create growing areas or our wildlife slaughtered because they are detrimental to marijuana growing.  We want citizens that are proud to “work for a living” not “grow for a living”.  Please vote “YES” for Measures “T” and “U” and also for Lisa Nixon to insure that Siskiyou County does not turn into another Humboldt County.

Western Livestock Journal

March 14, 2016

I’ve been traveling to a lot of bull sales around the western U.S. during the past few weeks. For the most part the sales are off a bit but the quality of the bulls is much better. It has also given me the opportunity to visit with a lot of public land ranchers to find out how they are getting along with their local BLM range conservation officers. I don’t recall anyone telling me they have had major issues with their local office. I’m sure there are exceptions, but it sounds like there is really a spirit of cooperation with ranchers and the BLM on range issues.

The federal government is throwing a lot of money at conservation projects, especially the Sage-Grouse Conservation Plan. The industry avoided having the grouse placed on the endangered species list this past fall. Most resource users felt that the existing conservation efforts sufficed in increasing habitat. But the federal land agencies went ahead and implemented the land management plans anyway.

It’s perplexing that on the local level ranchers and land management folks seem to get along. And then you have these heavy-handed initiatives come out of Washington, D.C. that disrupts any harmony that exists at the local level.

Last week the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), Public Lands Council, and many state cattlemen and farm groups had to file an amicus brief supporting Idaho’s suit against the sage-grouse land management plan, saying the BLM and U.S. Forest Service’s restrictive land management plans are a back-door alternative to not listing the sagegrouse under the Endangered Species Act.

This should illustrate that any land management decisions on public lands should be made at the local level. Tracy Bruner, the new President of NCBA, said in a press release that “Ongoing state management has led to a 63 percent increase in sage-grouse population in the past two years alone, further illustrating that these range management plans and land-use plan amendments are unnecessary. They added that, if these new standards are implemented, they will have a negative economic impact on ranchers and rural communities without any corresponding benefit to the grouse habitat.”

Also, last week a group of environmental organizations—including Wild Earth Guardians, Western Watersheds Project and our favorite, the Center for Biological Diversity—filed a suit against U.S. Fish and Wildlife asserting that they are not protecting a subspecies sage-grouse in the Mono Basin in California and Nevada and that the birds need to be placed on the endangered species list.

It’s no secret to anyone in the livestock business that these groups have an agenda to remove livestock grazing from public lands and the sage-grouse is one of their tools to do just that. I’ve traveled through a lot of sagebrush country over the past few weeks and the ground looks healthy to me. I have seen what restoration efforts are being made; they are positive for all.

In Utah alone, they are removing junipers and reseeding 18,000 acres to improve sage-grouse habitat.

It is a huge effort being made by the government and private landowners.

As I said, the folks on the ground in the local communities seem to be getting along fine. But when these national efforts get underway, they eventually end up in court and the game is on. These environmental groups knew what the ultimate results would be after listing the spotted owl on the endangered species list; it killed the logging industry in the Northwest.

The bad thing about these environmental litigator groups is that everyone wants them to go away. The BLM, Forest Service and Fish and Wildlife want to reduce their litigation load. Yet, the groups file lawsuits with reckless abandon and we pick up the tab with the Equal Access to Justice Act.

They intend on using the same playbook on the cattle industry and it appears they will stop at nothing to get the greater sage-grouse on the endangered species list. They will use the courts with no intention of cooperating and finding common and workable ground.

It’s crazy how these nonprofit organizations work.

They may not show a profit but they pay plenty of salary and benefits to those who start and operate them. These non-governmental organizations are becoming a major nuisance to society. They use selective science and the courts to fight their cause, yet it appears to me that they should have little standing to even use the courts.

It’s vital that we obtain a new political climate in this country because common sense left the building and nobody noticed him leaving. — PETE CROW, publisher

Guest Opinion: The Westside project is necessary

Forestry & USFS, Op-ed

Hard work and high hopes from several local community collaborative groups went into the Westside Fire Recovery Project.

Printed in Siskiyou Daily News, Yreka, CA

By Bruce Courtright, chair,
Westside Klamath Fire Recovery Steering Group

Posted Mar. 18, 2016 at 10:00 AM

Hard work and high hopes from several local community collaborative groups went into the Westside Fire Recovery Project.

During the summer of 2014, catastrophic wildfires burned 183,000 acres on our Klamath National Forest. Many of our local citizens volunteered hundreds of hours spending much of that summer representing the needs of local communities with fire teams assigned to these fires.

In the end, the fires burned about 90,000 acres of forest set aside as “Late Successional Reserves” for old growth dependent wildlife species, including 18,000 acres of high quality Spotted Owl habitat. Some of the area burned so hot that little is left for wildlife habitat or healthy timber. Some of the burn, however, was spotty and with specific scientific treatments offered an opportunity to create a forested mosaic in which all wildlife species could flourish, future catastrophic fire behavior could be moderated and important road systems could be protected.

As the smoke cleared that summer, the Klamath National Forest proposed a forest restoration effort called the Westside Fire Recovery Project. The forest collaborated with numerous groups including our Westside Steering Group. More than 13,000 comments were received from other agencies, tribes, groups like ours and the public. The forest service designed a conservative project to treat less than 10 percent of the burned area to significantly lessen impacts to fish and water quality, to address concerns raised during public scoping and to meet legal and policy constraints of the Northwest Forest Plan.

Harvesting of dead and dying timber followed by proposed fuels treatments by private companies will help reduce the risk of future high severity wildfires in the burned land and in adjoining communities. In addition to supporting much-needed local jobs, payments to the government will offset the costs of the project to American taxpayers and forego expensive future tax-funded fuels treatments necessary for community protection if the work is not completed now.

On Feb. 29, Forest Supervisor Patricia Grantham signed the Record of Decision for the Westside Fire Recovery Project. This decision includes 5,570 acres of salvage harvest, 12,700 acres of tree planting, 320 miles of roadside hazard treatment and 24,450 acres of hazardous fuels reduction, including 11,180 acres of prescribed burning. These activities are strategically located on the landscape to provide increased community protection and reduce the damaging effects of any future high intensity wildfires.

Despite the hard work of the KNF, numerous cooperating local groups, the Siskiyou County Collaborative and participating regulatory agencies, legal action by opposing groups has already been filed to stop the project.

You will hear from project detractors, many of whom live outside Siskiyou County, that the project is a huge clear-cut and large amounts of sediment will go into the streams, adversely affecting fish and water quality. The project maps show this is anything but a clear cut, with distinct areas and treatments called for in various parts of western Klamath National Forest.

Page 2 of 2 – After a fire that denudes steep landscapes, sedimentation can occur until the soil stabilizes, whether treatment occurs or not. The recovery period following rehabilitation treatment is expected to be shorter in comparison to doing nothing, with a lessened chance of a repeated fire event of this magnitude.

There are those who say, “Leave the burned area alone and it will come back.” This is possible for some areas, but as hot as a lot of the fires were in many places, it may be hundreds of years before conifers can reseed to this area. As the dead trees fall, brush grows through them, and after six years, the area becomes an unnavigable landscape of matchsticks. If another fire starts there, the fire will be hotter and harder to control than those of 2014. Untreated landscapes in our area with repeated devastating environmental effects have been well documented on the Megram Fire footprint in the headwaters of the Trinity River.

It is critical that the project move forward quickly. Small diameter trees are already rotting and becoming bug infested. As this happens, the bugs will attack the surviving trees to complete the destruction. The massive Rim Fire’s untreated area bug epidemic, coupled with drought, was recently recognized as a state emergency by Governor Jerry Brown. This is another example of what can happen by doing nothing (“nature’s path”) that some advocate after large fires.

Our Steering Group that has represented you during the planning for fire recovery the past two years asks that you give your support in whatever form you see fit to the Westside Fire Recovery Project. If we lose the ability to complete this critical forest recovery work, the loss to our communities, our recreation industry and to future generations will be horrific.
