State officials in California have said that 17 communities will be out of water within the next two to four months. Wells are starting to run dry and reservoir levels are low as the state faces the worst drought in almost a century. The number of vulnerable communities is expected to increase over the coming weeks and months, and the list will be updated weekly said Dave Mazzera, acting drinking water division chief for the California Department of Public Health. Lompico is one of the affected areas.     “We have been unable to take water out of the creek since August and well production is down, and we didn’t have that much water to begin with.” said Lois Henry from the Lompico water board. She is certain the district will soon have to truck in water. Cloverdale has already seen the implementation of mandatory 25% rationing and a ban on lawn watering. It’s very likely that more mandatory cut backs will follow. The 17 most vulnerable areas are:     Jackson Valley Irrigation District     Shaver Lake Heights Mutual Water Co District     Sierra Cedars Community Services district     Boulder Canyon Water Association area     Camp Condor     The Cypress Canyon Water System     Lake of the Woods Mutual Water Co area     Bass Lake Water Co area     Whispering Pines     Brooktrails Township Community District     Redwood Valley Community Water district     Willits     Washington Ridge Conservation camp     Ophir Gardens     Lompico County Water District     Cloverdale     Healdsberg

Hoopa Valley Tribe Declares Drought Emergency

Hoopa Tribe

Two Rivers Tribune

The Hoopa Valley Tribal Council called an emergency meeting with their environmental and healthcare staff to discuss a plan to prepare for the realities of drought. Later that day, the Council passed a drought declaration./Photo by Allie Hostler, Two Rivers Tribune – See more at: http://www.tworiverstribune.com/2014/01/hoopa-valley-tribe-declares-drought-emergency/#sthash.R81v4gmE.dpuf

By ALLIE HOSTLER, Two Rivers Tribune

The Hoopa Valley Tribal Council declared a drought emergency on Monday evening at their re-scheduled council meeting.

The declaration comes just three days after California Governor, Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency on behalf of the state. Several counties have also declared emergencies as low precipitation levels and lack of snowpack, continue to break records.

When it comes to the Trinity River, water levels have never been as low as they are now or at least in the past 50 years that there has been a record.

“We’re setting a new record, and it’s not a good one,” fisheries hydrologist, Robert Franklin said during an emergency meeting with tribal departments on Monday morning. “The flows are the lowest anyone alive has seen (at this time of year).”

Franklin explained the dilemma low water flows can cause for the tribe. He said Trinity Lake is about half full and that if the Bureau of Reclamation acts as if there is a surplus of water in Northern California, sending more to central and southern California, cold water for the river could be compromised during critical salmon migration times this fall.

“Politics and money are on the other side,” Franklin said. “There’s a good chance we’ll squeak through this year, but if we have another dry year, or several, wow, we’ll be in no position to do anything.”

The Tribal Environmental Protection Agency (TEPA) is concerned about water quality and plans to begin testing for bacterial contamination earlier this year.

Ted Oldenburg, from TEPA said, “The major concern with low water levels is increased temperatures creating conditions ideal for the growth of algae and bacteria that could become a health risk, not only for drinking, but for recreational use in the river and creeks.

TEPA is also working to ensure their air quality measuring devices are up and running prior to the fire season, since it’s predicted to also be record-breaking.

Forest manager, Darin Jarnaghan and Fire Management Officer, Kevin Lane are working to develop a plan to reduce fire risk in residential areas. Some attendees talked about implementing a defensible space regulation to protect homes, but nothing was agreed upon during the meeting.

The tribe’s Office of Emergency Services is a little more than a week away from formalizing a draft Drought Mitigation Plan that could include storing water from untapped waterways in the mountains, increased fire prevention measures and repairing backup water systems for domestic purposes.

The plan will also include a strategy for increased public education about water conservation, and safety from polluted water and fire.

Director of the Hoopa Valley Public Utilities District (PUD), Barbara Ferris, said she is working to secure a backup water system and storage for domestic water use should Trinity River water become unusable.

“The scientific community doesn’t know where this is going. No one can really say, because no one has seen anything like this before. The planning needs to be three-to-five years out and it needs to be put in place now,” Ted said.

The team assembled to address the drought emergency will meet again to discuss their progress in two weeks.

Another Big Green power player moves up in Obama’s Washington

BY RON ARNOLD | OCTOBER 31, 2013

NATIONAL PARK SERVICE

President Obama this week nominated Rhea Sun Suh to be the

Department of the Interior’s assistant secretary for fish and wildlife and parks, a move that has brought shudders to ranchers, miners, timber harvesters and energy workers nationwide, particularly in the West.

(ALRA-Also private property owners are worried.)

The reason is that this high post controls both the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service.

Those two large agencies have a track record of appalling behavior that ranges from massively coercing private property away from thousands of owners, to faking science for new regulations, to cozy sue-and-settle lawsuits with not-so-former green group colleagues.

Suh is presently Interior’s assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, a position she came to in 2009.

With the arrogant Obama administration already overstocked with autocratic, intransigent, unaccountable agency heads, this nominee requires close scrutiny. Who is Rhea Sun Suh?

She’s a native of Boulder, Colorado, educated at Barnard College and Harvard University, and served as senior legislative aide to Colorado Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, who switched from Democrat to Republican during her tenure.

Republicans should note that Suh told a reporter that she found the move “personally challenging,” not a bipartisan epiphany. She resigned the next year.

In 1998, Suh was hired as a program officer of the Big Green megabucks William and Flora Hewlett Foundation — current assets, $7.4 billion

($1.9 billion in 1998), according to the database

CitizenAudit, created by the /Washington Examiner/’s Luke Rosiak.

At Hewlett, Suh managed their multimillion-dollar Western grants portfolio, doling out hundreds of thousands to green groups who sued the government to block productive ventures and usurp private property rights at the federal, state and local levels from the Dakotas to Texas to the Pacific — and even helped outlaw production in 21 million acres now called the “Great Bear Rainforest” in British Columbia, Canada.

 With the Hewlett job came a membership to the 200-plus-member Environmental Grantmakers Association, a major nerve center and force-multiplier of Big Green’s foundation netwar capacity.

 Writer Eve Pell argued in 1990 in Mother Jones Magazine, “by deciding which organizations get money, the grant-makers help set the agenda of the environmental movement and influence the programs that activists carry out.” That was 1990. It’s practically total control today.

The ferocity of EGA denizens can be gauged by an applause line from Canadian academic and activist David Suzuki’s keynote speech at their 1992 annual retreat: “The planet is under siege by the deadliest predator ever known in the history of life on earth.”

That would be you and me, of course, and all other human beings.

 Well, predator Suh involved herself deeply in the EGA, serving for many years on assorted committees as chairman and vice-chairman.

 In 2007, Suh became Conservation and Science Program Officer at Big Green money machine David and Lucile Packard Foundation ($6.3 billion current assets, $6.6 billion in 2007, according to CitizenAudit).

 She continued blocking productive ventures, particularly in the Feather River region of California’s Sierra Nevada.

In her present Interior job, Suh led diplomatic negotiations for an international agreement that will permanently prevent oil, gas and mineral production in the Flathead River basin in the U.S. and Canada.

 She dismantled Interior’s production-oriented Minerals Management Service and replaced it with three industry-punishment fiefdoms after the disastrous Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

 Astoundingly, Suh used her keynote speech at the Environmental Grantmakers Association’s 25th anniversary retreat last year to invite its wealthy elites to use her position to advance their grantees.

 “I look forward to working with you, my colleagues, mentors and friends, to utilize the skills and talents of the EGA community to advance a more resilient world and a resilient movement.”

 That’s appalling – “to advance the movement,” not America.

Suh’s magisterial allegiance to Big Green is chilling.

 The Senate must not misjudge this nominee. She is a brilliant and passionately dedicated ideologue, a master manager and consummate strategist.

 Would she be able to run the Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service? Oh, yes. She — and every Big Green group she ever bankrolled — would rule them.

Rep. LaMalfa Comments on President Obama’s State of the Union Address

Doug LaMalfa Congressman CA

 

Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today issued the following comment on the President’s State of the Union Address:

At the beginning of the President’s speech, I agreed with many of the goals and points he laid out. While I was pleased to hear him speak of streamlining regulations, his actions don’t match the rhetoric. We’ve seen his regulatory agencies reach ever farther into Americans’ lives, using creative legal interpretations to stymie economic growth and attack agricultural activities that are specifically exempted under existing law. His own actions are largely responsible for the very problems he spoke of tonight.   

Under the President’s economic agenda, America has seen both the first and second annual trillion dollar deficits in our nation’s history, sustained unemployment above seven percent and 90 million Americans pushed out of the workforce. Unfortunately, while the President and the Senate have failed to act on the 40 pro-growth jobs bills passed in the House, millions of Americans who are ready to work are left jobless.

The path to higher incomes isn’t through mandating wages, but through a highly-skilled workforce that can command higher pay. His own health care policies are doing more to force Americans out of full-time, high paying jobs than wage mandates can ever hope to fix.  We know that Americans can be the most competitive workforce on the planet, and that’s why House Republicans passed the SKILLS Act, which increases job training and placements, over ten months ago. Unfortunately, the President and Democratic Senate have yet to act on the bill.

In the North State, we have directly felt the negative impact of the President’s agenda.  Over 900,000 in California alone have lost their coverage under the President’s health care law, nearly three times the number of people who have actually gained coverage.  Just a year ago, the President told these families and individuals that if they liked their plan, they could keep it. Now they are being told they have to buy a product that is too expensive and inaccessible or face a fine. Americans are seeing their options evaporate, access limited and costs increase.

Working together is something the American public expects of Congress and the White House. The President has said the words, but as we’ve seen with his health care plan, the government shutdown, Iran sanctions and a host of other problems, he hasn’t been willing to talk with us. That doesn’t sound like working together to me.

The President has called for a year of action. Californians are facing massive transportation needs, crushing debt, increasing crime and a drought of historic size. I hope that we can work together to address these dire needs.

Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.

Drakes Bay Oyster Co. has more time to prepare for Supreme Court

Agriculture - California, Federal gov & land grabs, Lawsuits

PNP comment: Finally, a bit of good news. — Editor Liz Bowen

Posted:   01/27/2014 04:02:36 PM PST

The Drakes Bay Oyster Co. has been granted a legal stay to allow it to continue operations over the next 90 days while it prepares its case for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Earlier this month the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals declined to re-hear the Drakes Bay case in which owner Kevin Lunny sought an injunction to keep his operation open. On Monday, the same court gave him the stay.

The Drakes Bay closure order came on Nov. 29, 2012, when then Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced he would allow a 40-year lease — originally negotiated with the Johnson Oyster Co. in 1972 and taken on by Drakes Bay — to expire.

Firewood Strategy Public Meeting

Federal gov & land grabs, Forestry & USFS, Freedoms - Individual

PNP comment: This is a tiny step in the right direction, but ALL of the Forest must be available to the “people” for woodcutting. It is “public” land and must be managed for all the public, not just elitists!!! — Editor Liz Bowen

Yreka, CA. –The Goosenest Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest is conducting a series of firewood cutting strategy meetings that are open to the public.  The next meeting is scheduled to take place at 5:00 P.M. on Friday January 31, 2014. The meeting will be at the Goosenest Ranger Station, 37805 HWY 97, Macdoel, California.  Interested members of the public are invited to attend and make comment on improving firewood cutting access and strategy on the National Forest.

As a result of past firewood strategy meetings, the Goosenest Ranger District has opened new firewood cutting areas.  Two newly planned firewood cutting areas will be discussed at this meeting, one located near county Highway A-12 and another near the community of Tennant.

Permits and maps for firewood cutting are available at the Klamath National Forest Supervisor’s office in Yreka, or at any Ranger District Office on the Klamath National Forest.
