Klamath ‘Takings’ trial adjourns, H&N, posted to KBC 2/20/19. “The two-week trial started on Jan. 30 at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, within walking distance of the White House. More than 20 irrigators or those representing the interests of irrigators testified during the trial of their losses in 2001 when water was shutoff to benefit endangered fish downstream.”

Water decisions are not making any sense, by former Klamath County Commissioner Tom Mallams, H&N, posted to KBC 2/20/17. “The irony of this is so obvious. The rivers are at flood stage or very near it, and OWRD finally lifts the tribal call on the water…This applies to all uses on the listed water right, including stock water, and domestic…surface water, (rivers, creeks and springs), and ground water, (wells). Most all of the rights list irrigation as a listed use.” “…A single judge and our federal government send extra water down the Klamath River for fish in the middle of a flood. You would certainly think a flood event would contain enough water for any fish needs, including flush or pulse flows. It is absolutely necessary that logic and true science drive the decisions critical to the survival of our local economies…”

PNP comment: Be careful of the “Pulse flow curbed in wake of downstream concerns” article in H&N — it was Ray Haupt, Siskiyou Co. Supervisor, who raised the most ruckus to stop the pulse on top of flooding water. He found huge support from CA.

Matthew 10:8 – “Freely you have received; freely give.”

Reclamation pulls back on water releases, H&N 2/11/17.

Bureau to release Klamath water pulse today, H&N 2/10/17.

PRESS RELEASE: 2/9/17 – Statement From Representative Werner Reschke On Federal Court Decision Related To Klamath River.

Court orders extra water to protect salmon, H&N 2/9/17. “…The Yurok Tribe, Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations (PCFFA), Institute for Fisheries Resources (IFR), Klamath Riverkeeper and the Hoopa Valley Tribe sought a court order to compel the Bureau of Reclamation to manage river flows to protect juvenile Coho salmon. The case was heard last week. “Mismanagement of Klamath River flows below four major dams led to an outbreak of disease from a parasite called C. shasta in more than 90 percent of sampled juvenile salmon in 2015 and nearly that many in 2014,” according to a press release from EarthJustice.org… According to court documents, the defendants claim the proposed flows will require withholding more than 100,000 acre-feet of water from the irrigation districts that rely on water for agriculture in the Klamath Basin. The Klamath Water Users and the Klamath Irrigation District, and others on the project, filed as intervenors on behalf of the federal agencies in the case. Scott White, director for the Klamath Water Users Association (KWUA), said he had not seen the order yet, but bemoaned the fact that the issue was not resolved at the negotiating table…”

KBC NOTE: Earthjustice is funded by George Soros.  “…Earthjustice was founded as the “Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund” in 1971.This group seeks to place severe restrictions on how U.S. land and waterways may be used. It opposes most mining and logging initiatives, commercial fishing businesses, and the use of motorized vehicles in undeveloped areas….Earthjustice has provided free legal representation to more than 600 client organizations.”
Former Earthjustice clients: PCFFA, Klamath Riverkeeper (board members are Craig Tucker, Karuk Tribal Spokesman and Leaf Hillman, Karuk Counsel President, Yurok Tribal member Frankie Meyers and Klamath Tribal member David Taylor), PCFFA founded IFR. The Yurok Tribe, PCFFA, IFR, and Karuk Tribe were “friends” / “stakeholders” of KWUA, and claimed to support Klamath farmers in the KBRA / Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement. Yet in a 2011 video Tucker called the Klamath farmers “enemies”, and pledged to work to destroy Keno Dam after the other Klamath River hydro dams are destroyed.

Klamath Basin Crisis news 2-4-17 – Comment on saving Tulelake airport

Klamath Basin Crisis.org

KBC News

Comments are due Feb 28, 2017 for development of the WWII Japanese relocation camp near Tulelake, the NPS / National Park Service’s  GMP / General Management Plan. A second meeting January 18 was moved from Tulelake City Hall to the Honker Community Center because of the large turnout; approximately 67 concerned citizens and government employees attended. LB superintendent Larry Whalon said this was by far the largest turnout of all the recent meetings he has held from Washington to LA. This plan will affect every person and business in the Tulelake basin.

Most all those who spoke opposed expansion of the already-acquired 1300 acres of land to tell the story of those in the TuleLake internment camp, opposed the Japanese TuleLake Committee lawsuit against the airport, opposed such a huge acquisition of land already acquired compared to the size of Pearl Harbor monument, opposed the closure of the previously public Peninsula which is closed for the Japanese TuleLake Unit, opposed the site telling only the story of the Japanese and not the Tulelake WWII veterans who survived WWII and Japanese prison camps; they wanted the entire story told and not simply one part of the story.

Several brought up how hundreds of thousands of acres, most of the Tulelake area, are already owned by National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Forest Service, and Bureau of Land Management. They opposed what was told by Mr Whalon to San Jose meeting encouraging partnering with Tulelake locals to gain willing sellers, easements, and access to the Tulelake Airport for many daily tours which was not discussed with the Tulelake residents or private airport. They also opposed the concept of shutting down the airport in the winter and summer afternoons as Whalon suggested in San Jose at a GMP meeting, or using helicopters to spray our fields rather than airplanes. They were not comfortable that Whalon expressed in San Jose how the fence was awful and no one wanted the fence in the Udall facilitated meetings, which was not true; the majority of people in the Udall meetings felt airport security was #1 priority and we needed a fence to prevent fatal collisions on the runway.

Also of concern is that the TuleLake Committee has substantial ties with terrorist group CAIR / Council on American-Islamic Relations (see attachment), and the GMP promotes education of the Islam story, a goal of CAIR.

The full GMP/EA document is available at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/document.cfm?documentID=75566  or by request

NPS GMP summary: file:///C:/Users/krizo/Downloads/TuleGMP%20Newsletter3.pdf

* Attached is our letter from January 17, 2017 before the Jan. 18 meeting. It includes notes from what Lava Beds National Monument Superintendent Larry Whalon told Tulelake area residents regarding his preferred choice of GMP Plan C, and also includes a UTube link to his meeting in San Jose, which was contrary to the description he gave the Tulelake local citizens of the GMP.

Nick Macy, owner of Macy’s Flying Service, operates the airport. Macy, city of Tulelake which owns the airport, and Modoc County which manages the airport, are being sued by the Tule Lake Committee to prevent a necessary security fence from being erected around the airport to prevent aircraft accidents with deer, people, and livestock. Their stated desire is to shut down our airport so they can have it to add to their park.

* Attached is a letter from Nick Macy requesting people write comments on the GMP, explaining that the Tulelake community supports Plan A.

* Attached is a list of links to articles and documents with Tule Lake Committee board of director members and their affiliations, namely the partnerships with CAIR / Council on American-Islamic Relations
            A few of the articles include:

Republican lawmaker with a better tribal record tapped for Interior Secretary
http://www.indianz.com/News/2016/12/15/republican-with-better-tribal-record-tap.asp

Thursday, December 15, 2016

This time it’s official — Republican president-elect Donald Trump has tapped a lawmaker with a more favorable record on tribal issues to head up the Interior Department. Since joining Congress in 2015, Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Montana) has supported tribes on water, taxation, health care, federal recognition, economic development, energy, violence against Native women, and sovereignty matters.

If he is confirmed as Secretary of the Interior, he would be the key person in the incoming administration that deals with Indian issues. But Trump didn’t mention tribes at all as his transition team made the official announcement on Wednesday. Instead he indicated that other issues on Interior’s plate, including public lands management and exploitation of natural resources, were his priorities.

Zinke, however, didn’t leave Indian Country out. The announcement noted that he is an adopted member of the Fort Peck Tribes in Montana. “Most important, our sovereign Indian Nations and territories must have the respect and freedom they deserve,” Zinke said. As Montana’s sole representative in the House, Zinke has championed a number of causes for tribes in his state. The very first bill he introduced after taking office in January 2015 was H.R.286 to extend federal recognition to the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians. While the bill did not become law after it was added to a controversial recognition reform measure, Chairman Gerald Gray counted Zinke among the tribe’s “allies and friends” in a statement posted on Facebook on Tuesday. And that support could prove crucial because the Bureau of Indian Affairs, an agency at Interior, is still considering whether to grant federal status to the descendants of Chief Little Shell.

Another one of Zinke’s initiatives was more successful. He helped secure passage of a long-delayed water rights settlement for the Blackfeet Nation. H.R.5633, the Blackfeet Water Rights Settlement Act, was included in S.612, a national water bill that awaits signature from President Barack Obama. “Water is more than a drinking source to the Blackfeet, it’s their life source and we must respect and honor their culture and rights,” Zinke said in a press release on Tuesday in which Chairman Harry Barnes offered praise for the lawmaker. Zinke’s experience with water rights will prove crucial should he be confirmed to the Interior post.

The BIA and the Bureau of Reclamation, another agency at the department, play critical roles in negotiating and implementing settlements across Indian Country. And in yet another area of interest, Zinke would have the authority to make changes at Interior that he wasn’t able to achieve through legislation. He could revive a committee of tribal and state officials that deals with mineral resource issues, something he tried to do with H.R.5259, the Certainty for States and Tribes Act.

Zinke’s pro-energy stance could turn out to be helpful for some within Indian Country. He has repeatedly accused the Obama administration of engaging in a “war on coal” which he said hindered economic development opportunities for the Crow Tribe. But his push for a coal export terminal that would have benefited the tribe came at the expense of another. During his re-election campaign, he accused his Democratic rival of taking “blood money” from the Lummi Nation, whose leaders opposed the project.

Zinke derided the Lummis as a “wealthy tribe” but did not explain that they opposed the terminal because it would infringe on their treaty-protected fishing rights. The Obama administration halted the project in May in direct response to those concerns. But now that Zinke has been tapped for the president’s Cabinet, his departure from Congress could open the door for Denise Juneau, a member of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation who was his rival in the race.

Federal law requires an election to fill a vacancy in the U.S. House although she hasn’t committed to running again. “I look forward to a little time off to re-adjust the sails and think about what it is I want to do and accomplish,” Juneau, who was hoping to become the first Native woman in Congress, told Montana Public Radio on Monday. Confirmation hearings for Zinke are expected to take place early next year, after the 115th Congress convenes. He would go before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. “As a westerner, Ryan understands the challenges of having the federal government as your largest neighbor and I couldn’t think of a better fit for Secretary of the Interior,” Sen. Steve Daines (R-Montana) , who serves on the committee, said in a press release on Tuesday, before the official announcement.

Trump had been considering another Republican lawmaker with a less favorable tribal record for the Interior job. But Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Washington) basically withdrew herself from the running as Zinke’s stock rose. “It was an honor to be invited to spend time with the President-elect, and I’m energized more than ever to continue leading in Congress as we think big, reimagine this government, and put people back at the center of it,” McMorris Rodgers said on Facebook on Tuesday.
