In a PLF beach case, court crushes the Williamson County removal-ripeness trap

Liberty, Pacific Legal Foundation

In North Carolina, Texas, California and other regions, Pacific Legal Foundation has worked diligently to protect the property rights of coastal land owners . We have also fought for many years to ensure that property owners of all sorts have equal access to the federal courts to defend their constitutional rights.

Today, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a significant, favorable published decision in Sansotta v. Town of Nags Head that advances both causes.

From Liberty Scene 7-31-13: Conservation easement bill to lock up millions of acres

Federal gov & land grabs, Liberty

Congressmen Jim Gerlach (R-Pa.), Mike Thompson (D-Calif.) and a bipartisan group of 133 of their colleagues today introduced a bill to help landowners work with 1,700 land trusts nationwide to protect millions of acres critical for water, wildlife and working farms, ranches and forests.

Both are members of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. “H.R. 2807 makes conservation a real and affordable option for family farmers, ranchers and forest landowners to protect lands that are vitally important to their communities,” said Land Trust Alliance President Rand Wentworth, the head of a national conservation group representing 1,700 land trusts that have conserved 47 million acres.

Update on Oregon fires

FIRES

We’ve got a helicopter attack base set up here at Grants Pass Airport as well as one at Illinois Valley Airport. The fixed wing “forward air controllers” are simply called “air attack” or “attack one” when they are working a fire. Each fire usually has its own frequency, but several of these fires are in tough terrain and close together, so they are all lumped into one frequency and one air attack pilot.

The fixed-wing planes flying air attack here are three twin commanders (2 piston and one turboprop), a Cessna 206, and a couple C-182s. The large fixed-wing air tankers that drop 3000 gallons (24,000 lbs) of red retardant at a shot are based out of Redmond or Medford, and they follow a guy in a Beech King Air or a Cessna 340 who is called “lead one” and who sets the course into the fire for the DC-7s to follow. These guys are pretty damned good at what they do!

I’ve attached a couple photos of the helos working the fires here today. The K-Max in photos 7 & 7a is pretty interesting – it’s the heaviest lifter out here and it’s all rotors, motors and sling – will carry up to 6000 pounds of water in a basket (about 750 gallons).

Smoke was so thick that a lot of the air activity was shut down. Visibilities less than a mile in most places around here right now.

The Forest Service’s Mission Statement is Pure Fantasy

Federal gov & land grabs, Forestry & USFS

By: Jim Petersen, Founder, the Evergreen Foundation

No. 4 in Evergreen’s Silver Bullet Series

“The mission of the U.S. Forest Service is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. The agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world.

Public lands the Forest Service manages contribute more than $213 billion to the economy each year through visitor spending alone. Those same lands provide 20 percent of the nation’s clean water supply, a value estimated at $7.2 billion per year. The agency has either a director or indirect role in stewardship of about 80 percent of the 850 million forested acres within the U.S., of which 100 million acres are urban forests where most American’s live.”

The quoted message above appears at the bottom of every press release disseminated by the United States Forest Service. It is the venerable agency’s official explanation for its existence, yet it bears only a fleeting resemblance to the truth. This isn’t to say that I believe whoever wrote this statement is a liar. It is to say that the modern-day Forest Service is whistling past its own grave in hopes that no one will give it a final shove into the abyss.

It is true that Congress created the Forest Service in 1905 and gave it responsibility for caring for a timberland base that today totals 193 million acres. But I have serious doubts about the rest of the claims the Forest Service makes in its mission statement. Even the agency’s leadership admits that about 80 million of the 193 million acres in its care are in such dreadful ecological condition that it will most likely burn to the ground before Congress musters the political courage to shut down the litigation machine that is destroying the nation’s federal forest heritage.

If the Forest Service was actually working “to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations” we would still have an active timber sale program – one that at least removed diseased, dying and dead trees from forests that have been overrun by insects and parasites, fueling wildfires that now cost U.S. taxpayers more than $1 billion annually.

Oregon fires update from Mark Johnson in Grants Pass

CA & OR, FIRES

We are in a bad way up here.  The fire by the town of Glendale is now about 32 miles square.  The fire between Merlin and Sunny Valley [like Ft. Jones and Yreka]  is over 2,000 acres and by the houses.  The Labradore fire is in the Kalmiopsis…so we could have a reburn of those  500,000 acres.

The Big Windy Complex is on the Curry Josephine County line… on the South bank of the Rogue River [for now]……has the potential to …

……… burn …to Roseburg and Coosbay… and back towards Grants Pass.  Like 4X the acres of the Biscuit Burn.

Extreme potential there.

We have a fire on our job today also… found out about it on my way home.  I told them to call if they need me.

We hope it is just a minor thing…it was caused by the mechanical tree faller..the Timco.

Orleans Fire Consumes Two Homes, Continues to Burn

FIRES

 Fires started just after 5 pm on Monday, July, 29, in Orleans. Within an hour and a half, over 100 acres were burned, two homes were destroyed and five outbuildings, and Highway 96 was closed just south of town. The highway has reopened to one-way controlled traffic and current updates report the fire has burned more than 350 acres. / Photo by Elaina Supahan.

THE TWO RIVERS TRIBUNE

UPDATE

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 (4:30 pm)

“The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but preliminary signs indicate it was probably a human caused fire because there was no lightning in the area,” said Mike Beasley with the Six Rivers National Forest during a briefing held in Hoopa with the Type 2 Incident Command team (NorCal Inter agency Team II) set to take command of the fire this afternoon from their incident command post provided by the  Hoopa Valley Tribe.

A joint investigation is being conducted by CalFire and the U.S. Forest Service.

During the briefing, officials said one firefighter was injured by a falling branch which broke his nose.

Officials said rumors that the evacuation was lifted are not true. The evacuation of certain areas of Orleans remains in effect as of 4:30pm on Tuesday, July 30.

Power to all of Orleans was restored by 3 pm this afternoon.

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 (2:30 pm)

Residents of Orleans were forced to evacuate the town after wildfire broke out just after 5 pm on Monday, July 29, along Highway 96 near Camp Creek Road.

Within two-and-a-half hours, more than 100 acres were burned and several homes were destroyed. By 10:30 pm, the fire had engulfed over 200 acres, and hundreds of homes were threatened. By Tuesday morning, the fire grew to more than 350 acres and consumed two residences and five outbuildings.

The fire is moving up Sims Gulch toward the G-O Road in a steep forested area.

Julie Ranieri, Public Affairs Officer for the U.S. Forest Service’s Six Rivers National Forest, said, “Power lines and phone lines are down, and Highway 96 has been closed near Orleans.”

Highway 96 has since reopened to one-way controlled traffic and some area residents in the Karuk Housing area were allowed to return to their homes at about 11am on Tuesday.

Emergency crews from the Six Rivers and Klamath National Forests, Cal Fire, Hoopa Volunteer Fire Department, Hoopa Wildland Fire Department, and Orleans Volunteer Fire Department were on the scene Monday night with more crews and the American Red Cross arriving Tuesday morning.

Law enforcement officers from the California Highway Patrol, Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, and the U.S. Forest Service were also assisting in the evacuation and rescue operations.

A Type Two Incident Management Team assumes command of the fire, dubbed the ‘Dance Fire,’ this afternoon.

A public meeting will be held this evening (Tuesday) at 6pm at the Karuk Department of Natural Resources Building in Orleans.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
