9 minute youtube video on Siskiyou –  well worth watching and then mass email it !!!!!!!!!  Please.

Debbie Bacigalupi and Dave Spady have sent out their first youtube video featuring the drastic issues facing Siskiyou County

as the Greenies, several Tribal leaderships, Calif. Dept. of Fish and Game and federal agencies use fraud to destroy 4 well-functioning hydro-electric dams in the Klamath River.

If the dams are destroyed, it will severely hamper the already devastated local economy as legal irrigation water will then be taken away from small ranches and family farms.

Thank you Debbie for your hard work. She is dedicated to save her parents’ ranch in Siskiyou County. — Editor Liz Bowen

Dear Food Loving Americans:

About 25 years ago, Randy, a coworker, told me he thought there were plans by some group to force people to move into cities so they could be controlled. At the time, it seemed far fetched. Unfortunately, it seems that Randy was right. We know the group which is the radical environmentalists (There a lots of these watermelons) — The program is Agenda 21.

 The last Census showed that only 16% of Americans lived in Rural Areas. (Thank God that I am one of them after 24 years of living in a large city). Sadly, many Americans have no idea where their food comes from. I remember a survey done among young people in a very large city about where McDonald’s got their burgers. 40% of them thought it was created at the individual McDonald’s outlet!

America’s farms and ranchers are in Rural America. It is progressively getting tougher for our food producers to successfully operate due to a constant barrage of government regulations and actions to deprive them of needed water supplies. For example, a short while ago, some brainacs in EPA came up plans to regulate the amount of dust made by farmers.

Obviously, these fools never spent a minute on a farm. Fortunately, the plan was shot down.(for now) Then there was an idea to require all farm equipment operators to have a commercial drivers license like a long haul truck driver.(It was shot down too.

This attached video illustrates the plight of Rural People in Northern California faced with the prospect of the removal of dams to protect a fish that was introduced. These kinds of problems are faced by our food producers all over America as they are attacked by radical environmentalists and their willing accomplices in Big government.

The next time you are shopping in a supermarket, marvel at the variety of food available produced by American farmers and ranchers. We need to keep our food producers in business and stand up for them. The alternative is to get food from foreign sources like China or Viet Nam. Remember how the Chinese killed thousands of our pets with their tainted petfood. As for me, I damn sure do not want to be eating fish raised in a polluted lagoon somewhere in SE Asia.

Sincerely,

Ron Glynn

Wolf Creek, Oregon

California Water Wars: Nevada Didn’t Grab Enough

PNP comment: Interesting info on Colorado River, etc. — Editor Liz Bowen


Article should take about 2 – 4 minutes to read.

What, you ask, does Nevada and Las Vegas have to do with California water?  Well, water wars aren’t just fought within states. They are also fought between states. Southern Nevada gets almost 90% of its water from the Colorado River. Southern California also gets substantial water from the Colorado, most of which goes to agriculture in the Imperial Valley. The Colorado River has the unenviable status of being the most litigated river in the world. The problem for Nevada is that it agreed to a small apportionment of Colorado River water back when their population was tiny. Southern Nevada gets 0.3 Million Acre Feet a Year (MAFY) while California gets a princely 4.4 MAFY.

But then gambling came to Las Vegas in a big way. The population soared. They now have persistent water problems, made worse by a decade of drought. Thus, the Southern Nevada Water Authority is on a mission to find water anywhere it can.

Nevada’s crown jewel is the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River at Lake Mead. They get one-third of the power generated by it. But water levels at Lake Mead have dropped so precipitously that a “third straw” is needed to insure that water will be available. It will cost $800 million and no one is quite sure where the money will come from. In addition, SNWA has floated plans to build pipelines from northern Nevada and Utah, something which has met with vociferous opposition. They’ve also discussed building desalination plants in California or Mexico and swapping that for more water from the Colorado River.

Under The Law of The River which governs the Colorado, California, Nevada, and Arizona are allowed to use any Colorado River water not used by another state. But given the drought and growing populations, all three states are using their full allotments. This means no excess water for the other states.

SNWA is not currently a direct competitor with California for water due to the ancient agreement apportioning Colorado River water. Should that agreement ever change – and everyone know it is archaic – then SNWA could directly compete for more Colorado River water. However, SNWA is relentless in seeking more water and through swaps, desalination, and other agreements and is always looking to get more water from the Colorado. If they get more, someone else gets less. That is the real Law of The River.

Ag water allocations hiked

Agriculture - California, California water

PNP comment: This article is about water in Sacramento Valley and Bureau of Reclamation Project farmers south of Siskiyou County. — Editor Liz Bowen

westsideconnect.com Logo Image
April 23, 2012 | Posted in: News |

West Side farmers will have more water to work with this summer, after the Bureau of Reclamation revised its 2012 allocation last week.

The Central California Irrigation District, which had prepared for its first “critical” water year since 1994, was advised that it will receive a normal water allocation.

Growers in surrounding federal water districts learned that their 2012 allocation has been bumped from 30 percent to 40 percent – still a far cry from the 80 percent allocation of a year ago.

According to a Bureau of Reclamation news release, improved precipitation in the Sacramento Valley and improved snowpack in the Sierra Nevada led to the increased allocations.

A 100 percent water year has been the norm for CCID even through tight water times because of its enviable water rights secured under a long-standing exchange contract, which assures the district of receiving no less than 75 percent of normal.

Most cropping decisions have already been made, CCID General Manager Chris White explained Monday, but the increased allocation means that growers will have to rely less heavily on groundwater wells.

“It does come in time for us to revise our thinking on well use,” White told Mattos Newspapers. “We are preparing to make a heavier than normal draw on our groundwater, but we are back to normal operations and preserving our groundwater for a future year.”

Given the complex formulas involved in determining the allocation, White said, there may be an increased likelihood of a critical designation next year.

He said that conservation continues to be a priority for the district and its growers.

White said CCID received applications for $4 million worth of conservation projects last year and funded them all through a combination of grants and low-interest loans.

“With heightened awareness, with nearly a critical year this year and perhaps a heightened probability (of a critical year) next year, I see them embracing that even more this year,” White predicted.

Federal districts

Growers in federal districts such as the Del Puerto Water District running along the Interstate 5 corridor  are now slated to receive a 40 percent allocation.

Jim Jasper, president of Stewart & Jasper and a Del Puerto district board member, said he does not anticipate additional increases.

He said that storms delivered enough rainfall and snow in February and March to somewhat change a water outlook which,  along with cool weather had the added benefit of reducing demand for irrigation deliveries during that time period.

“It is a step in the right direction,” Jasper said of the 10 percent increase in allocation. “We will still have to get supplemental water, which tends to be very expensive, but there won’t be quite the demand for it.”

From Oregon Senator Doug Whitsett

Agenda 21 & Sustainable, Federal gov & land grabs, OR Senator Doug Whitsett, Politicians & agencies, Water, Resources & Quality

The Clean Water Act was adopted by Congress 1972. The purpose of the Act was to clean up our nation’s fresh water resources. It was designed to identify, and mitigate, water pollution from both point-sources, such as discreet discharges from a pipe, and from non-point sources, such as precipitation flowing from a field or forest.

The Act appeared to recognize that water pollution from point- sources generally are related to the activities of man. Most of these discreet sources of water pollution can be adequately addressed resulting in a cleaner water supply. For that reason regulations were adopted making identified mitigation procedures for point-sources mandatory and enforceable.

The Act also appeared to recognize that non-point sources of water pollution are less likely to be under the control of man and are more difficult to address. For these reasons the Act required that non-point sources of water pollution must be identified and that water quality management plans must be created to attempt to address those more diffuse water quality problems. However, the Clean Water Act did not require mandatory compliance with the water quality management plans because that compliance is often neither physically nor economically possible.

Over the past forty years, implementation of the Act has made significant progress toward cleaning up our nation’s fresh water supply.

In the early 1990’s the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission began legal efforts to expand the mandatory compliance to non-point sources of water pollution. Largely in response to that action, the Oregon Legislature adopted Senate Bill 1010 in 1993 that established the agriculture Water Quality Management Act . The EPA ultimately did not prevail in their attempt to enlarge their regulatory authority.

However, Oregon’s one of a kind state Agriculture Water Quality Management Act remains Oregon law. It is administered by the Oregon Department of Agriculture under the control of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. The law set up nearly forty separate state planning areas for water quality management.

The law provided for the appointment of Local Advisory Committees for each area. Those committees were tasked with identifying local water quality problems, and determining opportunities to improve that water quality. Each committee adopted rules designed to make progress toward better water quality within their local watershed.

The Administrative Rules the committees adopted have the full force of Oregon law. Each committee developed rules that they believed were appropriate for their particular area. However, all Local Advisory Committees were required to adopt one rule by the Oregon Environmental Quality Department.

That Rule was Oregon Revised Statute 468B. That statute defines all of the regulations that apply to water pollution from point-sources. Virtually every Local Advisory Committee in Oregon objected to adopting that rule, because it appeared to apply the mandatory regulations for point-source water pollution to the non-point source run-off that the committees were addressing.

The committee members knew that no way exists to meet those standards when applied to run-off from fields and forests. Committee members were concerned that the citizen lawsuit provision of the Clean Water Act would result in a third party bringing suit to force compliance with the 468B rule. Notwithstanding the plain wording of the ORS 468B rule, the Oregon Department of Agriculture assured committee members and producers that moving toward achievement of water quality standards would be sufficient to comply with those rules.

Unfortunately, the committee members were correct to be deeply concerned. The Northwest Environmental Advocates did sue the EPA, and various other federal agencies, to enforce the provisions of Agriculture Water Quality Management Act as they apply to the Clean Water Act. The suit appears to be focused on attainment of compliance with the ORS 468 B rule.

In a ruling last month, Federal Magistrate John V. Acosta appears to imply that making progress toward achievement of the Water Quality Management Plan rules is not sufficient. My reading of his decision appears to suggest that the water quality standards actually must be achieved to comply with the Water Quality Management Plan rules in order to provide adequate habitat for threatened and endangered species

Many of these water quality standards, such as water temperature and water phosphorous concentrations, cannot be achieved. They cannot be met because the standards significantly exceed the normal background levels. Water in the streams often exceeds those standards without any influence by man.

The result is that water diverted from a stream for irrigation may already exceed the water quality standards. For that reason, it cannot be returned to the stream because the return flow exceeds the arbitrarily established standard for clean water.

Unfortunately, after nearly twenty years, the committee members’ greatest fears have become reality. A third party lawsuit has resulted in a court ruling that appears to apply point-source water quality regulation to agricultural practices. The ruling has the potential to virtually eliminate flood irrigation practices in much or Oregon when that irrigation practice results in any surface water return flow to the stream or river.

It is my concern that Federal Magistrate Acostas’ ruling, if not successfully appealed, has the potential to virtually eliminate centuries old irrigation practices in much of Oregon.
Please remember, if we do not stand up for rural Oregon no one will.

Best Regards,

Doug

Letter to the Editor

April 24, 2012

Montague, Calif. — I happened upon a recent article printed in the Mount Shasta News about Jim Cook and his third run for District 1.

There was some of the information in the article that was not exactly correct: “‘One of the things he’s most proud of since becoming a supervisor is the progress made in coordination – the process by which local governments can sit down and work with federal agencies and bureaucracies,’ Cook explained.”

As far as I can tell, there has been no progress made. In looking at their Web, five years after attending their meeting with 75 other people, where Fred Kelly Grant held his coordination conference, I believe they actually only started coordination in 2011.

However, progress is being made by our local governments in Siskiyou County using the coordination protocol: Copco Fire Protection District, Fort Jones, Lake Shastina, Montague, Montague Water District, Happy Camp with forestry and Sheriff Lopey, has involved his office. All this is occurring from a lot of hard work by other people helping with this coordination process.

As for the comment: “Cook said he introduced the concept of coordination to the county, and he believes it has become a successful tool in gaining respect for Siskiyou County residents, particularly on issues regarding dam removal and forestry.”

Mr. Cook did not introduce the coordination concept to the board a few years ago. The Greenhorn Grange, Leo Bergeron and Anthony Intiso did. They sponsored the Feb. 16-17, 2007 Coordination Protocol Conference at the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds. I attended that two-day conference. Marcia Armstrong, Bill Overman, Michael Kobseff and Jim Cook were the four supervisors who attended. Marcia attended both days. Cook was not there on the first day, and Bill Overman and Michael Kobseff did not attend both days because they: “did not want trouble with the Brown Act.”

There was mention of McCloud and Nestle. He did not mention that the environmentalists, non-governmental organizer/stakeholders were the ones who are pleased that they ran Nestle out of McCloud. I read an article where they talked about it.

Sorry I had to correct your information, Jim.

New case of mad cow disease in California

Agriculture - California, cattle

PNP comment: This is all we need — new fears blasted at consumers by the media. U.S. grown food really is extremely safe, especially when compared to the 3rd world countries and major foreign markets — hummmmm like China. — Editor Liz Bowen

By SAM HANANEL and LAURAN NEERGAARD
Associated Press

Published: Tuesday, Apr. 24, 2012 – 12:16 pm

Last Modified: Tuesday, Apr. 24, 2012 – 6:36 pm

WASHINGTON — The first new case of mad cow disease in the U.S. since 2006 has been discovered in a dairy cow in California, but health authorities said Tuesday the animal never was a threat to the nation’s food supply.

The infected cow, the fourth ever discovered in the U.S., was found as part of an Agriculture Department surveillance program that tests about 40,000 cows a year for the fatal brain disease.

No meat from the cow was bound for the food supply, said John Clifford, the department’s chief veterinary officer.

“There is really no cause for alarm here with regard to this animal,” Clifford told reporters at a hastily convened press conference.

Mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), is fatal to cows and can cause a fatal human brain disease in people who eat tainted beef. The World Health Organization has said that tests show that humans cannot be infected by drinking milk from BSE-infected animals.

In the wake of a massive outbreak in Britain that peaked in 1993, the U.S. intensified precautions to keep BSE out of U.S. cattle and the food supply. In other countries, the infection’s spread was blamed on farmers adding recycled meat and bone meal from infected cows into cattle feed, so a key U.S. step has been to ban feed containing such material.

Tuesday, Clifford said the California cow is what scientists call an atypical case of BSE, meaning that it didn’t get the disease from eating infected cattle feed, which is important.

That means it’s “just a random mutation that can happen every once in a great while in an animal,” said Bruce Akey, director of the New York State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Cornell University. “Random mutations go on in nature all the time.”

The testing system worked because it caught what is a really rare event, added Mike Doyle, director of the University of Georgia’s Center for Food Safety.

“It’s good news because they caught it,” Doyle said.

Clifford did not say when the disease was discovered or exactly where the cow was raised. He said the cow was at a rendering plant in central California when the case was discovered through regular USDA sample testing.

Dennis Luckey, executive vice president of Baker Commodities, told The Associated Press that the disease was discovered at its Hanford, Calif., transfer station when the company selected the cow for random sampling.

Luckey said the cow died at the dairy and was randomly tagged for the surveillance program.

Michael Marsh, chief executive of Western United Dairymen, said it was an adult cow over 30 months old, not a downed or sick animal, and it appeared normal when it was last observed. He said the cow was first tested on April 18.

Rendering plants process animal parts for products not going into the human food chain, such as animal food, soap, chemicals or other household products.

There have been three confirmed cases of BSE in cows in the United States – in a Canadian-born cow in 2003 in Washington state, in 2005 in Texas and in 2006 in Alabama.

Both the 2005 and 2006 cases were also atypical varieties of the disease, USDA officials said.

The Agriculture Department is sharing its lab results with international animal health officials in Canada and England who will review the test results, Clifford said. Federal and California officials will further investigate the case. He said he did not expect the latest discovery to affect beef exports.

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association said in a statement that “U.S. regulatory controls are effective, and that U.S fresh beef and beef products from cattle of all ages are safe and can be safely traded due to our interlocking safeguards.”

Clifford said the finding shows that safeguards the U.S. government and other nations have put into place in recent years are working. In 2011 there were only 29 worldwide cases of BSE, a dramatic decline since the peak of 37,311 cases in 1992. He credited the decline to effect of feed bans as a primary means of controlling the disease.

There have been a handful of cases of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease – the human version of mad cow – confirmed in people living in the United States, but those were linked to meat products in Britain and Saudi Arabia, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Past scares about mad cow disease have affected beef exports to Japan and other countries. Japan banned all U.S. beef imports in 2003 after the first case of mad cow disease was discovered in the United States. Japan resumed buying American beef in 2006 after the bilateral trade agreement setting new safety standards.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Tuesday that the latest finding would not affect trade between the US and Canada.

Calif. Hunting Bill To Ban Dogs Draws Hundreds

2nd Amendment rights, Agriculture - California, Dept. Fish & Game, Gun rights & hunting, Property rights, Threats to agriculture, Wildlife

PNP comment: Whether animal lovers like it or not, there must be “management” of wild animals in many areas. Dogs are a valuable tool. These are the same type of dogs that are also used to track missing people or fugitives. This is not a one-size fits all world. We must live and let live! — Editor Liz Bowen

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Hundreds of animal lovers and hunters packed the Capitol on Tuesday to testify about a bill seeking to ban the use of dogs to hunt bears and bobcats in California, legislation that arose after a top state fish and game official drew heat for killing a mountain lion during a legal hound-hunting trip in Idaho.The crowd overflowed two committee rooms and filled the building’s two cafeterias before SB1221 by Democratic Sen. Ted Lieu passed its first committee test on a 5-3 vote.Supporters say hound hunters use packs of dogs, often equipped with radio collars, to chase wild animals until they tire and run up a tree. The dogs used for this type of hunting are sometimes mistreated, they say.”It’s described as mild,” Lieu, of Torrance, said before the committee voted. “This is not mild. You’ve got running dogs chasing a bear and-or bobcat. It’s not mild because sometimes the bear fights back and kills the dogs or injures them. It’s not mild because sometimes the dogs will tear apart the bobcat. And it’s not mild because the bear runs and runs and runs until the bear is exhausted and climbs up a tree and the hunter goes and shoots the bear.”Lieu’s office said several other states already ban the practice, including Arkansas, Colorado, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. Animal rights activists say it is inhumane for both the dogs and the wild animals they chase.Hunters said a ban would infringe on a long-time sport and remove a tool for managing wildlife. Opponents wore orange pins reading “Revenge is not the answer,” a reference to the chairman of the state game commission, who angered animal-rights activists earlier this year when he was photographed with a mountain lion he shot while using hounds during a legal hunt in Idaho.It is illegal to hunt mountain lions in California.Republican Sen. Doug LaMalfa said hunting is an issue for communities in rural parts of California to manage. He said banning the practice would have a devastating economic impact in some counties.”We really have a good process here with the Fish and Game Commission and the Department of Fish and Game closely monitoring the impact of hunting. I’m an animal lover myself; I hate to see abuse, whether it’s the wildlife or the hounds,” said LaMalfa, of Willows. “By and large, the vast majority of folks are trying to have good conservation practices.”According to state wildlife officials, California has an estimated black bear population of about 30,000, which has grown from about 10,000 three decades ago. In recent years, between 1,500 and 1,800 bears are killed each year by hunters, about 45 percent were killed with the use of dogs.The bobcat population is estimated to be 70,000. The state sold about 4,500 bobcat hunting tags last year. About 11 percent of the bobcats killed in California were killed with the use of dogs. The figures do not include illegal killings by poachers.The bill now goes to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Siskiyou County Mayors Endorse Rick Bosetti for Assembly

Assembly - California districts, Rick Bosetti


We need a leader that can fight for our forgotten rural cities and towns in Sacramento”

(Redding, Calif.) –Demonstrating strong support in Siskiyou County, three mayors have endorsed Rick Bosetti for Assembly, District 1.   City of Fort Jones Mayor Tom McCulley, City of Mt. Shasta Mayor Russ Porterfield, and Yreka Mayor Rory McNeil have joined Bosetti’s growing list of support from mayors and council members throughout the North State.

“Siskiyou County would be well-represented by a leader like Rick Bosetti,” said Fort Jones Mayor Tom McCulley.  “We represent different values than most of California, we need a leader like Bosetti who can fight for our forgotten rural cities and towns in Sacramento.”

“As Mayor of the largest city in Siskiyou County, it is my pleasure to endorse Rick Bosetti for Assembly because he has a record of taking on the establishment,” commented Yreka Mayor Rory McNeil.  “Rick is the right leader at the right time to oppose major efforts by the politicians in Sacramento to steal from our city coffer, preventing cash strapped communities from cut back on essential services and releasing prisoners early.”

Bosetti, one of eight children, was born and raised in Redding.  He graduated from Anderson High School and was drafted from Shasta College by the Philadelphia Phillies.  He went on to play for the St. Louis Cardinals, Toronto Blue Jays, and Oakland A’s before retiring in 1981.  He is married to his high school sweetheart, Patti, and they have four children together.
