Published in Siskiyou Daily News, Yreka, CA.
There may be a whole new way to look at water and obtaining it – from deep inside the earth. An unusual discussion will be held tonight at the Yreka Tea Party Patriots meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m. and is held at Covenant Chapel Church, 200 Greenhorn Rd. in Yreka. It is free.
The speaker is a local resident, Pal Pauer, who is an authority on what is called “primary water” and how to obtain it. Pauer is an expert hydrologist and geologist and has dowsed, found and helped drill for primary water from the Yreka area to Kenya in Africa. He has been involved in drilling 100s of wells that are providing significant amount of water.
Pauer speculates that the incredible new flow of water in creeks in Solano County, CA. after the Sept. 26, 2014 earthquake resulted from shifts in the earth’s geology that now allows a deeper groundwater to make it to the surface. Pauer’s information should be very enlightening.
Scott Valley Protect Our Water will meet this Thursday, July 30, 2015 at the Fort Jones Community Center. Time is 7 p.m. Please bring a dessert to share as we eat before, during and after. Siskiyou County Dist. 5 Supervisor Ray Haupt will be speaking on a number of county issues. Rich Marshall, president of the Siskiyou Water Users Assoc. is also planning on speaking.
Last month, Klamath Co. Commissioner and Chairman of the Board, Tom Mallams, told POW about the 44 agricultural wells in the Upper Klamath that the State of Oregon had ordered to be shut-down. This order included Mallam’s well. There should be an update on this situation.
There will be food, drink and “Rockin’ the Rec” fun on Friday, July 31 from 8 to 11 p.m. Live bands “River Rock” and “The ‘B’ Side” will be playing, so bring your dancing shoes. Doors open at 5 p.m. with pizza and drinks at 11236 N. Hwy 3 in Fort Jones. Admission is $10 at the door.
I keep forgetting to mention that the watermelons are past softball size and cantaloupe have set on. Yay! We have finally eaten a few ripe tomatoes with great expectation of lots more.
After I complained last week about my cabbage seeds that did not germinate, Peggy Heide from the Yreka Community Garden called and said she had some younger cabbage plants that I could plant. So I stopped by the Yreka Community Garden and was truly impressed with all the garden blocks that local residents are utilizing; and the perennials that are in pots and will be sold during the fall sale.
Peggy sent me home with flathead cabbages, broccoli, kale and several varieties of onions. I also purchased a tall, blooming black-eyed Susan plant. I put them under the pine tree planning on transplanting, but ended-up busy for several days. Then one afternoon I went out to turn on an irrigation timer and a doe was lying under the pine tree. Ugh. I got her out, without her tearing up the fence, but quickly learned that she enjoyed several cabbages, the broccoli and kale along with my blooming lavender phlox and some amaranthus leaves. Gee whiz, I felt stupid, but the deer haven’t been around much lately, so I let my guard down. I’ve also been told that a mountain lion has been spotted running across the road by our house – once at 3:45 in the a.m. and just last week at 9:30 a.m.
Anyway, I was able to save and transplant several cabbages and I planted the onions on Saturday. Also gave Peggy a call and told her the sad news.
I was a bit surprised that the Yurok Tribal leadership recently encouraged a raid of over 55,000 large marijuana plants claiming it is illegal to grow marijuana on the Yurok Reservation and the irrigation water is needed in the Klamath River for salmon.
Here is their press release: “This year’s “Operation Yurok” resulted in the eradication of approximately 55,000 marijuana plants. Large-scale cannabis cultivation, on and near the Yurok Reservation, is responsible for robbing millions of gallons of cold water from several tributaries that feed the Klamath River. The main purpose of the two-week, collaborative operation was to return as much water as possible to the Klamath and the Tribe’s community water systems, which are located downstream of many of the illegal pot plantations. Large quantities of chemical fertilizers, as well as illegal grading and trash dumping, were a common visage at the environmentally destructive grow sites.”
“Currently, the Klamath River is suffering from salmon-stressing, warm temperatures and low flows. Earlier this week, the Yurok Fisheries Program found adult Chinook salmon infected with Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (Ich), the same deadly disease responsible for the 2002 fish kill. The pathogen thrives in warm, slow flowing water.”
Yep, kinda leaves you hanging alluding to other possibilities …

PNP comment: This must be from back East or the South, where it is legal to obtain a tag to hunt a doe. But you get the gist. It is great! — Editor Liz Bowen
A FUNNY for conservatives —
Looking forward to hunting season but I do have a question…
If I shoot a buck, but I only have a doe tag, can I claim that the buck wasn’t really a buck?
I mean, maybe he’d always wanted to be a doe, but with no choice of his own he was born with the physical attributes of a male. Yet on the inside he’d always known he was truly female.
I’m just wondering if the game wardens will buy it.
Our society and the Supreme Court does!

Officer Involved Shooting
Earlier this morning, at approximately 0653 hours, officers stopped to check on a motorist who was parked on the right shoulder of I-5 southbound, north of North Weed Boulevard. Upon contacting the solo and only occupant of the vehicle (2004 Chevy Malibu), officers observed a firearm within the vehicle.
The motorist suddenly sped away from the officers and a pursuit ensued.
Officers utilized a spike-strip and the Chevy came to a stop in the center divider of I-5 southbound, at Mott Road within Siskiyou County. Shortly after the Chevy came to a stop a combat shooting occurred. There are no outstanding suspects and traffic is being diverted around the crime scene at I-5 southbound, at Mott Road. Traffic is expected to be delayed while the CHP’s CIIT (Critical Incident Investigative Team) and Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office personnel are conducting the investigation.

Comment by Erin Ryan, field staff for Congressman Doug LaMalfa:
I’m not sure if you have been hearing about this social engineering experiment the Obama administration is pushing through HUD. It’s a very bad idea and most Americans do not want or need Big Brother deciding who lives next door to you. I wanted you to know that Congressman LaMalfa is a signer on this letter of request for a hearing on the matter and wants our neighborhoods left alone. The release below gives you an overview of what they are trying to do.
House Republicans request hearing on H.R. 1995 to prohibit
Obama HUD neighborhood rezoning rule
July 28, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government board member Bill Wilson today issued the following statement joining 18 House Republicans who in a letter urged the House Judiciary Committee to commence hearings on H.R. 1995, “The Local Zoning and Property Rights Protection Act of 2015,” which would prohibit the Department of Housing and Urban Development from implementing a rule, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing”:
“The radical HUD plan to condition federal funding on rezoning neighborhoods to achieve a subjective and punitive set of quotas is a utopian pipe dream, and a federal attempt to usurp local zoning authority. We urge the House Judiciary Committee to take up H.R. 1995, and to require political partisans at HUD to justify this raw power grab. This has nothing to do with individual cases of housing discrimination, which have been illegal for over 40 years. Like the IRS abuse of power targeting people who disagree with them, the Obama appointees are using the power of government to harm communities that do not vote or act as Obama and his allies think they should. It is social engineering, nothing more.”
