Cadd prevails by nine votes; Dickerson supporters concede council election


PNP comment: Redding Tea Party Patriots backed candidate Gary Cadd wins over Unions supporting Dick Dickerson. — Editor Liz Bowen

A few residents may have tried to vote twice

    • By Jenny Espino


  • Posted November 29, 2012 at 11:44 p.m.

A recount for the Redding City Council race Thursday confirmed Gary Cadd’s slim margin of victory over
Dick Dickerson.

Election results certified on Nov. 19 declared Cadd the second-place finisher in the three-way race for two seats. He edged out Dickerson by a razor-thin 11-vote margin in that first count.

After the hand recount finished Thursday, three days after it was initiated by a group of Dickerson’s friends and supporters and more than three weeks after the Nov. 6 election, the difference was nine votes.

Meanwhile, the Shasta County elections office has referred the names of four people to the district attorney’s office on suspicion of attempting to vote twice in the election.

Observers said they counted 62 changes over the course of the recount process, but in the end, the result changed little.

“We win by nine votes,” said Cadd, expressing relief he now can give his full attention to the serious issues facing the city. “I have been meeting with the Redding staff. They invited me in. We’ve been going over different issues, so I’ve already hit the ground running.”

DWR Announces initial water delivery estimate for 2013; 30 percent projection expected to Increase with additional storms
Press Release
From Aquafornia – Friday, Nov. 30, 2012

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) today announced an initial allocation of 30 percent of requested deliveries to State Water Project (SWP) contractors in calendar year 2013. The initial allocation – or water delivery estimate – is always conservative because it is made early in the storm cycle. The state normally receives more than 90 percent of its snow and rain from December through April and today’s allocation is expected to increase as more storms roll in.

Calif contractors to get 30 pct of requested water

From News 10 – Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012

California residents and farmers can expect less than a third of the water they requested for next year, but state officials hope that amount will increase. The state Department of Water Resources said Thursday that State Water Project contractors can expect to get 30 percent of their requested deliveries for 2013.


Local farmers ready to fight irrigation order


From KGET 17 – Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012

Tensions will boil over again as the discussion of a proposal that could cost farmers millions, comes to Kern County. This proposal aims to prevent poisonous nitrates from seeping into our drinking water from farms. But, farmers said the regulation is unnecessary, and, if passed, will eliminate hundreds of farms in Kern County.



‘We’re not there yet’

By Alex Breitler
From Alex Breitler’s Environmental Blog – Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012

Deputy Secretary for Natural Resources Jerry Meral said today that officials are not yet ready to publish the draft Bay Delta Conservation Plan (peripheral tunnels), originally expected in October.

“We’re not there yet,” Meral said at a BDCP meeting today. “…We simply don’t have yet a proposed project.” The new target: late January or early February.

Disruption of water delivery could devastate L.A. County economy
From Los Angeles Time – Friday, Nov. 30, 2012 

An earthquake that shuts down water deliveries from Northern California for a year could devastate the Los Angeles County economy, costing $55 billion and wiping out a half-million jobs, according to a new study. The research by a team of economists attempts to gauge the effects of a major earthquake disrupting water deliveries from the Sacramento-San Joaquin delta, which provides roughly a quarter of Southern California’s water supply.

Initial thoughts on the latest BDCP economic analysis presentation   


By Jeff Michael 

From Valley Economy – Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 

I attended David Sunding’s presentation at the BDCP Finance Working Group Meeting this morning, and some people have asked me to blog my reactions. Overall, I would say he did very well, and the presentation reflects substantial improvement for the Economic Analysis of the BDCP. It was certainly much improved over the June presentation, and I commend David for the enormous amount of work he has completed, and his clear and professional presentation and answers to the many questions. It wasn’t perfect, and I have a few new concerns, but they are outweighed by the improvements.   


State agency calls for cost-benefit analysis of Bay Delta Conservation Plan

From Sacramento Business Journal – Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012
A state agency announced Friday that a cost-benefit analysis of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan will be made to provide a more complete picture of the proposed project’s costs and economic benefits. The BDCP is a habitat conservation plan that would provide the basis for the issuance of endangered-species permits for state and federal water projects. It is largely focused on building a giant $13 billion canal or tunnel system to move water around the Delta to convey water to Central and Southern California.

Buy from China or don’t buy from China

Agriculture, Foreign countries

This may have been around before but is a great reminder for the holidays!

 Sent by Stan Meager

Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of Europe’s Best.

Arctic Gardens are OK.

Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada, the other stuff is grown in people poop (even worse than chicken poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world. U.S. is next.

Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in in huge containers from China and re-packed here.

Cold-FX is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. Doesn’t work anyway, big scam. If the country of origin is not clearly marked beware. If produce, ask an employee. Watch out for packages which state “prepared for”, “packed by” or “imported by”. I don’t understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially the produce.

The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store. I go to the local farmers markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year.

Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom. It’s important for all of us.

How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U.S. or Canada?


GOLD BRAND OR THE DOLE IS FROM CALIFORNIA. Beware, Costco sells canned peaches & pears in a plastic jar that come from China.


(Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken shxt.

If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish you’ll be alarmed, e.g. growth hormones, expired anti-biotic from humans. Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam, China, Philippines.

Check this out personally. I did.

Stienfeld’s Pickles are made in India – just as bad!!!

Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came from Indonesia. Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China!

While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands and criticizes the Obama Administration and the Harper Government for perceived errors. Yet 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended!! Well, duh. Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?


Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China ‘ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.


If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor…fast!! The downside? Some Canadian / American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.

Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.

START NOW and don’t stop. Send this to everybody you know. Let’s show them that NOBODY can take us for granted.

Lesser prairie chicken may get threatened listing

Endangered Species Act

PNP comment: More lies and fraudulent science will be used to destroy multiple land use. — Editor Liz Bowen

By KRISTEN WYATT, Associated Press

                Updated 10:05 a.m., Friday, November 30, 2012

DENVER (AP) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Friday it is considering formally listing the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species.

The announcement begins a yearlong review that will include public meetings in four of the five states where the member of the prairie grouse family lives.

Fish and Wildlife said it made the decision based on evidence that the bird and its habitat are in decline.

“The lesser prairie chicken is a species that is in peril and has been for some time,” said Fish and Wildlife Director Dan Ashe.

The chicken’s range includes parts of New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas. Nearly 85 percent of its grass and brush-land habitat has been affected by ranching and farming. Most of its habitat is on private land.

Ranchers, farmers and wind farm operators worry about a listing because it could increase regulations. Wind turbines, oil wells and fences are among the culprits scientists say have caused the chicken’s decline.

Washington Rep. Doc Hastings, chairman of the Natural Resources Committee, said the listing “could significantly disrupt traditional and renewable American energy production and delivery, as well as agriculture.

“Energy projects, including renewable wind energy, would be placed in jeopardy, facing inevitable delay and uncertainty due to new layers of regulatory red tape,” Hastings said in a statement Friday.

CA & OR, Federal gov & land grabs, Wilderness

Dear Josephine:

Oregon Wild sent out the below message yesterday to its activists. It is very important that you take a few minutes of time to notify Senators Wyden and Merkley that you strongly object to any more wilderness expansion in Josephine County.

 DO NOT use Oregon Wild’s email form attached to send any comments. They use it to capture people’s email addresses. I will send you a copy of my message to Senator Merkley and you can use that email address.

Regarding Senator Wyden, go to his web site and register you comments there.

Some talking points can be:

We already have 70,000 acres of Wilderness in Josephine County as part of the 180,000 acre Kalmiopsis Wilderness.

The 64,000 acres proposed for the Wild Rogue Wilderness Expansion has valuable timber resources set aside for production as part of the O&C Act of 1937.

The proposed Wild Rogue Wilderness Expansion area has deposits of valuable mineral resources like Gold as proven by past mining. A full Mineral Assessment is needed for the proposed area to determine the types and amounts of minerals present. Many millions of dollars of minerals maybe present below the ground. Some of the minerals are needed for our industrial use such as Tellurium which is used in the production of Solar Panels. Tellurium is a rare Earth substance and much of it used now in the United States is imported from China.

When the proposed Wild Rogue Wilderness Expansion legislation was introduced in Congress, it was done so without any prior consultation with the 3 Josephine County Commissioners.

Tens of Thousands of Josephine County residents are opposed to any more Wilderness Expansion.

A good portion of the land does not meet the criteria for Wilderness exclusion as outlined by the Wilderness Act. There is evidence of road construction, logging activity and mining activity in the past in the proposed area.

Oregon does not need any more Public Land turned in Wilderness for future generations. There are already 47 Wilderness Areas in Oregon totaling 1.7 million areas.

The Wilderness Expansion will do nothing to enhance tourism in Josephine County as the tourists travel on the Rogue River by raft and they will not even be able to see the land added for Wilderness. The very steep terrain away from the River prohibits hiking into that area. Besides, people on the raft trips do not have time for much hiking away from the River.  The current hiking opportunity is along both sides of the Rogue River for those people entering the area on foot.

Any more Wilderness Expansion will result in more road closures which will decrease hunting opportunities which is another important tourism activity in Josephine County.

Please take action, we must resist.

Galice Mining District has been re-organized


For your information, concerned miners in Josephine County have reorganized this Mining District. If you know any miners interested in mining in SW Oregon, please let them know.

Ron Glynn

Wolf Creek, Oregon


Re-organization: The Galice Mining District, which was first organized near the mouth of Galice Creek in 1853, was re-organized by a concerned committee of miners on September 2nd, 2012 who felt that many needs of the miners were not currently being met by any existing organization or mining district. The committee met at the property of the reman family in Douglas County, Oregon for the purpose of re-organizing the Galice Mining District and declared in part:

“that an existing mining district must be activated to achieve the goals of the miners, to wit: to provide guards for their mining rights, their properties and the yields thereof and therefore. It was agreed that the re-organization of the Galice Mining District was necessary to the achievement of said goal. The Galice Mining District is hereby reorganized.”

 It was motioned and unanimously passed to establish four offices to serve the Galice Mining District, including: a Chief Executive Officer who would have the combined powers of a Chairman and President; a Vice Executive Officer, who would have the duties of District Treasurer and to serve as a stand-in when the Chief Executive Officer is not available; a District Recorder, who would have the duties of a Mining District Recorder, as well as of a Secretary. The above three officers would also serve as a Judicial Panel in all grievances or other mining issues brought to the Galice Mining District. Fourth, was the establishment of a District Sheriff/Ranger who has the duty of investigating the complaints of the miners within this district and enforcing the judicial decisions of the above panel, as well as to maintain order at district meetings. For the interim, Kerby Jackson was appointed as Chief Executive Officer; Corey Palmerton as Vice Executive Officer; ida-lee, family of reman as Recorder, George Backes as Head Fundraiser and Ron Thorp as Mining District Sheriff-Ranger.

Lame Duck Congress Happening Now, Likely To Hurt You Unless You Call!

—–Huge Threats to You – Stop Harry Reid Omnibus Federal Lands Bill;

—–Call both your Senators today to stop any Omnibus Federal Lands Bill. Have them block it. They can do it if they want to. You need to make as much controversy about any Omnibus Federal Lands Bill.

—–Call any Senator at (202) 224-3121.

Stop EPA & Corps of Engineers Wetlands Jurisdiction Guidance Regulations Land and Water Grab

Stop Expansion of LWCF (Land and Water Conservation Fund);

—–You’re in a race. The Lame Duck Congress means all the Senators and Congressmen who have been defeated or who retired still get to vote on your future.

—–You must deluge your two Senators and your Congressman with calls to head off any Omnibus Federal lands bill.

—–This Lame Duck Congress is not even close to coming to an end.

—–While they’re working on the Fiscal Cliff, a lot of bad things can happen when Congress is in session and not paying attention to your issues.

—–The Lame Duck Congress is when all kinds of bad bills slip through Congress because your Senators and Congressman may no longer be responsible to you.

—–You must call your Congressman and both Senators to urge them to oppose ANY Omnibus Federal Lands bill.

—–That’s where Harry Reid gives every Senator a bill or two he wants passed that did not pass during the year. The understanding is that the Senator will then look the other way and ignore other parts of the massive Omnibus Federal Lands Bill . . . . . even if they hurt you and your community.

In 2010 Harry Reid tried to pass Omnibus Federal Lands Bill with over

200 bills in it. Fortunately you fought and defeated it.

Now that the election is passed, American Land Rights has turned our attention to defeating the likely Omnibus Federal Lands Bill and the EPA Corps of Engineers land and water grab in the Lame Duck Congress.

It is time to DEFUND the new EPA and Corps of Engineers Guidance Regulations that will take jurisdiction over all your water and your land.

They will effectively remove the word “Navigable” from the implementation of the Clean Water Act.

Below is information about bill in the House and Senate to take the money away from EPA and Corps to implement these new regulations.

ALRA must also focus on all the bad things that President Obama can do to you.

ALRA must alert tens of thousands of members and allies with letters, e-mails and faxes about the threats to you from the Lame Duck Congress and President Obama.

Join with us to stop the Obama Green Agenda.

Your support is critical to your success in getting as much information out as possible regarding the Obama Administration’s Green Agenda and your enemies in Congress to as many people as possible before and during the Lame Duck Congress.

Here’s a reminder list of some of the land grab threats the Obama Administration and certain members of Congress have planned for you, no matter who is in the White House.

Feds deny Marin County oyster farm lease renewal

Federal gov & land grabs


The Drakes Bay Oyster Farm near Inverness, on Thursday, November 29, 2012.  U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he will shut down the oyster farm at Point Reyes National Seashore, designating the site as a wilderness area.

U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar rejected a request Thursday to extend the lease of a controversial oyster farm on the Point Reyes National Seashore, ending more than 100 years of shellfish production in the area and creating the first federal marine wilderness area in California.

Drake’s Bay Oyster Co. — which produces 40 percent of the state’s oysters — has 90 days to remove all trace of its operations and depart from the bay where Sir Francis Drake first set foot in California.

“The estero is one of our nation’s crown jewels, and today we are fulfilling the vision to protect this special place for generations to come,” Salazar said in a statement.

The decision comes one week after Salazar visited the oyster farm to meet with owner Kevin Lunny and environmentalists fighting to shutter the operation.

Lunny, who bought the farm in 2004 anticipating the permit would be renewed, said Salazar informed him of the decision by phone. He hung up and walked out of his office, where he shared the news with his 30 anxious employees.

“We’ve never stood on the docks in tears before,” Lunny said. “It’s a horrible blow.”

Salazar, who had sole authority to extend the farm’s 40-year lease or terminate it, ordered the National Park Service to allow the permit to expire so that the bay can return to its natural state.

However, he also directed the Park Service to extend the leases of 15 beef and dairy ranches operating along the Point Reyes seashore. The ranches have “a long and important history on the Point Reyes peninsula,” Salazar said.

Wilderness advocates hailed the decision as a victory for the public. A study commissioned by the Park Service warned the oyster farm caused harm to harbor seals and grasses. They urged Salazar to return it to a state of wilderness as designated by Congress in 1976.

“This has been a long time coming,” said Bruce Hamilton, deputy executive director of the Sierra Club in San Francisco. “We have been waiting for 40 years. It’s the right decision.”

Neal Desai, associate director of the National Parks Conservation Association, called it a major conservation achievement.

“This is the greatest gift an Interior Secretary can give us,” said Desai. “It’s the protection of our national parks and wildlife. Salazar has delivered.”

Salazar also was applauded by many Democratic lawmakers, including Sen. Barbara Boxer and Rep. Lynn Woolsey.

“He studied the issue carefully, he listened closely to all sides and, in the end, he made his decision based on the science and the law,” Boxer said in a written statement.

Woolsey said Salazar was “fair, thorough and knowledgeable.”

“Now that this long process has run its course, it is my hope that we can put the contentiousness behind us and move forward as a united community,” Woolsey said.

But Salazar was criticized by Sen. Diane Feinstein, who authored the 2009 legislation that gave Salazar sole discretion to renew the permit.

Feinstein, who had urged Salazar to extend the lease for 10 years, said the Park Service’s environmental review contained “false and misleading science.”

“The Secretary’s decision effectively puts this historic California oyster farm out of business,” she said. “As a result, the farm will be forced to cease operations and 30 Californians will lose their jobs.”

From Western Farm Press – Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012

U.S. Department of Agriculture scientists are helping peach growers make the most of dwindling water supplies in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist James E. Ayars at the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Sciences Center in Parlier, Calif., has found a way to reduce the amount of water given post-harvest to early-season peaches so that the reduction has a minimal effect on yield and fruit quality.

Stanislaus ag water cleanup backed 


From Modesto Bee – Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012

A farmer-funded effort has helped reduce agricultural pollutants in waterways in and near Stanislaus County, its leaders and a state regulator said Tuesday. The East San Joaquin Water Quality Coalition reported that pesticide problems are “few and far between” nearly a decade into its monitoring and grower education. They said this and similar coalitions are showing that this method is preferable to regulation of individual farmers by the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board.
