‘Save Dunsmuir High’ rally planned

Siskiyou County, State gov

Redding.com

  • Posted March 30, 2013 at 10 p.m.

Dunsmuir High School Superintendent/Principal Len Foreman is worried a proposed change in state funding could force the closure of the high school, which has been part of Dunsmuir since 1911.

“Help Save Dunsmuir High School,” a community forum, will be held at 6 p.m. Monday in the school auditorium to rally support for the school and encourage the community to contact legislators, Foreman said Friday.

Gov. Jerry Brown wants to overhaul the way schools are financed. He proposes doing away with many categorical programs linked to specific pots of money and instead consolidating dollars to give school districts flexibility in how they spend. Foreman said a proposed funding change for small, one-school district would hurt Dunsmuir High, which has 85 students.

Siskiyou County: Police ID two suspectws in $1M California gold heist

GOLD, Sheriff Jon Lopey

PNP comment: Way to go Sheriff Lopey !!! — Editor Liz Bowen

Published March 31, 2013

FoxNews.com

Police have named two suspects in a gold heist in California that netted more than $1 million a year ago.

The two men, both from the San Francisco Bay area, allegedly made off with more than $1.25 million in gold, jewelry and artifacts from a display case in the lobby of the Siskiyou County Courthouse during a February 2012 robbery.

“This has been a long and arduous investigation . . . “

– Sheriff Jon Lopey

Now, police say they’ve issued felony warrants for David Dean Johnson, 49, of El Cerrito and Scott Wayne Bailey, 51, of El Sobrante.

The men are the primary suspects, the LA Times reported.

“This has been a long and arduous investigation involving … suspects responsible for burglarizing our courthouse and stealing a historic gold display and other antiquities which cannot be replaced,” Sheriff Jon Lopey said in the release, according to the paper.

After making off with the gold and other items, Johnson and Bailey used the money from the sale of the goods to purchase “high-value” items, Lopey said.

The entire gold collection before the theft was valued at about $3 million. Lopey said it would be “highly speculative” to guess how much of the gold, if any, would eventually be recovered.

Surveillance footage captured video images of two men breaking into the courthouse at the time of the heist. An alarm that was rigged to notify Yreka police and sheriff’s deputies did not sound at the time.

Yreka, the seat of Siskiyou County, sits in the shadow of 14,000-foot Mount Shasta near the Oregon border.

Miners and other residents donated much of the gold to the collection over the past century.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Minutes from Scott Valley POW meeting March 27, 2013

POW

By Liz Bowen

Shared desserts first. About 40 people attended from as far away as Redding, with Erin Ryan, Congressman Doug LaMalfa’s staff, and Tom and Patsy Mohler from Red Bluff.

Liz Bowen presented the slate of officers that were nominated and stated the nominations were still open and please, if anyone wanted to nominate anyone, to do so. Mike Adams moved nominations be closed and we voted on the officers. The results are:

President Mark Baird

Vice presidents Andrew Hurlimann and Liz Bowen

Recording Sec. Bev Slaughter

Treasurers Cyndi Baird and Pauline Cramer

Jim Craig discussed the Fire Protection Fee. He spoke with Cal-Fire officials and learned the agency has NOT sent out a second set of bills. It is still dealing with 87,000 appeals and complaints received statewide – many claiming information is not correct regarding a livable structure on property.

But three people that we know of, in Siskiyou County, have received a second bill – two were in attendance at the meeting tonight. Jim said that for any discrepancies or to complaints about a second billing — to call the Suisun City Cal-Fire phone number and talk to a SUPERVISOR. The number is 1-888-310-6447.

Erin Ryan reported on Congressman Doug LaMalfa’s recent FIRST interview with FOX television from his Redding office. And that the Redding newspaper and television has continually painted the Redding Tea Party Patriots with negative and false articles. So the group no longer allows the media to report on their Question and Answer periods, which caused quite a stir on Monday night.

Congressman LaMalfa did hold a Town Hall meeting on Monday during the Tea Party meeting, which the television showed only 20 people attending, when in reality there were 380. This is the bias that continues from many media outlets.

Mark Baird told about his meeting with CA. Senator Jim Nielsen and 14 lawyers in Sacramento last week over the California Water Bond. The Southern California water entities want water to be channeled through the Bay Delta and, unfortunately, it looks like there may be additional $250 million in the 2014 Water Bond to pay for California’s portion of the cost of Klamath dam destruction.

Mark informed them that Siskiyou will loudly fight the Water Bond, which will pit Siskiyou agriculture against So. Cal agriculture. Yep, that is David and Goliath, but we do know how that turned out for Goliath!

Richard Marshall, president of the Siskiyou Water users Assoc., explained that the Klamath Co. Commissioners withdrawl from the KBRA and KHSA is a great step in the right direction. Some people are fighting and slamming Klamath Co. for withdrawl, but out of 9 counties that are affected by the Klamath River – only one is now a signer to the KBRA and that is Humboldt.

SCWUA is opposing The Nature Conservancy in Shasta Valley as it tries to take total ownership of its legal Water Right allotment and move that water down Shasta River, without it being utilized by other Water Right holders. This is not the way Water Rights works and, if TNC is able to shepherd its water down the Shasta River, it will totally change how Water Rights priorities work. Not a good thing.

The Siskiyou Co. Board of Supervisors voted 4 to 1 to write a letter to the Water Quality Control Board saying it does not want to participate in the Integrated Regional Water Plan, but realizes it is being mandated to close sewage ponds near Montague and does not have the funding to do the job. Yes, it is a dilemma.

Andrew Hurlimann is organizing a Gun Training Day with a law enforcement officer in attendance to provide instruction. Date TBA.

Mark Baird expounded on the letter he sent to DFG regarding its continued insistence of the Normandeau Company completing yet another redundant in-stream water flow study on both the Scott and Shasta Rivers. In a letter DFG Regional Manager Neil Manji sent to the County Board of Supervisors, Manji asked for input and info, which would be kept “private” and no public meetings would be held by the “Public Review Committee”. Yes, it looks like this info will be dealt with in “secret” and who knows if it doesn’t get changed around to fit the scenario DFG hopes to create.

In December, the Siskiyou Co. Board of Supervisors voted NOT to participate as a stakeholder DFG/Normandeau study.

First Circuit of US Court of Appeals Upholds Videotaping of Police

Federal gov & land grabs

PNP comment: This article refers to the federal ruling. I am not sure what the California courts have said about filming police lately. I have filmed the DFG Game Wardens, but they always knew I was there with the camera.

We believe we need to have camaras and audio recording devices on us, especially when dealing with agency employees and law enforcement.  — Editor Liz Bowen 

First Circuit of US Court of Appeals Upholds Videotaping of Police

PR Newswire/Yahoo! News

The First Circuit of the US Court of Appeals has held that videotaping police in the course of their duties is “unambiguously” a free speech right protected under the First Amendment.

The original lawsuit, Glik v. Cunniffe et al., Civil Action No. 10-10150, was brought by a Massachusetts lawyer, Simon Glik, who sued the city of Boston and three local police officers. Mr. Glik, the court documents stated, was arrested for video taping the officers’ conduct with his cellphone. Mr. Glik, in his lawsuit alleged that his civil rights, protected by the First and Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, were violated.

The arrest was based on the Massachusetts Wiretap Act, disturbing the peace and aiding in the escape of a prisoner. The official record indicates that the criminal case was eventually dropped, but Glik filed a civil suit.

The official record shows that the city of Boston and the police officers moved to dismiss the case, arguing that they were subject to immunity because there was no clear First Amendment right to film police using a cellphone video camera. The court records also show that they also argued that they didn’t violate Glik’s Fourth Amendment right because they had reason to believe he had violated the state’s wiretap law.

Judge William Young of the US District Court for the District of Massachusetts denied the motion to dismiss, the city of Boston and the officers appealed.

The appellate judges found that Glik did have a First Amendment right to film the government officials carrying out their duties in a public space. Private individuals, like members of the press, should be given wide berth to gather information on public officials, the judges wrote.

“Changes in technology and society have made the lines between private citizen and journalist exceedingly difficult to draw,” they wrote. “The proliferation of electronic devices with video-recording capability means that many of our images of current events come from bystanders with a ready cell phone.”

This is an important decision as various states have similar laws that prohibit the video taping of police conduct. Everyday Police officers arrest individuals for recording on-duty police without consent, citing such actions as violations of state wiretapping and eavesdropping laws.

Interior Denies Spinning Klamath Science

Federal gov & land grabs, KBRA or KHSA, Klamath River & Dams, Paul R. Houser Ph.D. scientist

PNP comment: We are so digusted that a government agency no longer has checks and balances. There is no REAL over-sight — just continued cover-up for lies and fraud. We support Dr. Paul R. Houser and his findings. — Editor Liz Bowen

Complaint Deemed Factual but Inaccuracies Excused as “Normal Practice”
Published on Mar 25, 2013 – 1:51:39 PM

By: Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER)

http://yubanet.com/california/Interior-Denies-Spinning-Klamath-Science.php#.UVR7cFdj8pG

Washington, DC March 25, 2013 – The U.S. Interior Department has rejected a complaint from one of its own Scientific Integrity Officers that it presented distorted summaries of studies on the effects of a still-pending decision to remove dams in the Klamath River.  Interior’s review confirmed the substance of the complaint but concluded that blatant inaccuracies and critical omissions did not constitute scientific misconduct, according to a response posted today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

Dr. Paul Houser, a hydrometeorologist, took leave from his university position to become a Science Advisor to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and to serve as its Scientific Integrity Officer.  In September 2011, he was asked to look over a draft press release and a summary of analyses on expected effects of removing four dams from the Klamath.  The release described only positive aspects, omitting a number of major contingencies, uncertainties and possible negative effects.  He elevated these concerns to the Secretary’s office.  Although Reclamation’s technical staff seconded his objections and the release was ultimately changed, two weeks later he was put on probationary status and the Department took numerous related retaliatory actions.  In February 2012, his position was terminated. Dr. Houser then filed a complaint that the actions against him violated the core tenets of the Interior Scientific Integrity Policy that he was formerly administering.

To help review the complaint Interior hired a consultant firm; the firm convened a three-member panel and produced a report in August that was only released last week.  The panel concluded that the complaint was factually correct but did not amount to misconduct for some very curious reasons.  For example –

·         Instances of “false precision” (where a summary has a finding that does not exist in the studies it purports to summarize) are dismissed because they are “not inconsistent” with the underlying studies;

·         Repeated inaccuracies – all slanted in one direction – in these short documents are excused by a panel finding that it is “normal practice” for press releases to exhibit hyperbole or falsities; and

·         Explicit efforts to prevent these concerns from being put into writing were discounted because the panel found them “not sufficiently unusual” to be “automatically alarmed” by them.

“By blessing abuse as ‘standard practice’ this review stood Interior’s scientific integrity policy on its head,” said Dr. Paul Houser, who also filed a whistleblower retaliation complaint which has since been resolved. “I feel like I fell through the looking glass into a world propelled by circular reasoning.”

Although the panel interviewed no witnesses, did not question Dr. Houser nor did any kind of actual investigation, it made findings about motives and intent of several of the actors inside Interior.  Rather than conduct its own inquiry, Interior’s Scientific Integrity Officer, Dr. Suzette Kimball, accepted the panel’s conclusions as “definitive” and formally declared the complaint to be “Not Warranted.” Her ruling came in a January 29, 2013 letter which did not include a copy of the report on which it was based.

“It is becoming obvious that Interior’s scientific integrity process suffers from a glaring lack of integrity,” stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch, noting that no scientific misconduct complaints filed under Interior’s integrity rules have been found to have merit.  “These rules were created at the behest of President Obama to root out rampant political manipulation of science yet in more than two years Interior has managed not to find a single instance of it.”

Dr. Paul R. Houser: Why I filed a complaint of scientific misconduct

Federal gov & land grabs, KBRA or KHSA, Klamath River & Dams, Paul R. Houser Ph.D. scientist

Statement of Dr. Paul R. Houser, Hydrometeorologist

March 25, 2013

Why I Filed a Complaint of Scientific Misconduct

In September 2011, as part of my job as the Bureau of Reclamation Scientific Integrity Officer, I expressed concern about the accuracy of science reporting and summary documents related to the pending Secretarial Decision on Klamath River Dam Removal.  I considered this case closed until the Department of the Interior escalated it through systematic reprisal and termination of m y job in February 2012.

Subsequently , I filed a scientific integrity complaint in accordance with the Department of the Interior’s Scientific Integrity Policy, and a whistle – blower protection claim with the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

I did a great deal of soul-searching and consultation before filing the complaint.  Making the complaint has significant implications for my career and family, and I wanted to make sure I was not pursuing it for selfish or political reasons.  I decided to file the complaint for three reasons:

(1) My obligation to scientific integrity as a scientist and my duty as a citizen to improve how our government operates;

(2) For the benefit of my replacement, so that he or she can uphold the public trust by providing honest scientific advisement without fear of losing their job;

and

(3) So that the Secretarial Decision is well informed.

I attest that I have no fiduciary or political ties or conflicts associated with the Klamath River Secretarial Decision process. I do not have any financial relationships with Klamath River associated industry, employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, expert testimony, either directly or through immediate family. I am not an author of any reports or the recipient of any research support associated with the Klamath River.

My philosophy has been to accept all interview and speaking requests, and I have been adamant about not accepting payment for them.  I am also not for or against dam removal, but rather I am an advocate for the best science informed decision that meets the multi-objectives of obeying the law, protecting the environment and advancing society.
