BLM poser should be fired for online comments

Bureau of Land Management

PNP comment: Even this opinion piece got it wrong. Remember that the Hammonds did not start the fires on BLM lands, but on their OWN lands in a cooperative agreement with BLM regarding prescribed burns. Years later, the BLM acts indignant and  uses the “Terrorism Act” to prosecute local ranchers only doing a cooperative practice that actually aided BLM for decades. The Hammond story is full of lies by bureaucrats and truly an injustice. — Editor Liz Bowen

 

Capital Press

A BLM employee who impersonated an agency retiree to make comments on a story on the Capital Press website violated agency policy, according to an agency spokesperson. It’s unclear, however, how seriously the agency is taking the violation.

The Bureau of Land Management has identified an employee who used a government computer to impersonate a former coworker and post comments on an article on capitalpress.com about the arson convictions of two Oregon ranchers.

It’s not saying who did it, or what disciplinary action is being taken. While that’s understandable as a personnel issue, what isn’t understandable is the BLM’s seeming lack of regret and indignation.

Greg Allum, an Eastern Oregon resident once employed by BLM, recently informed Capital Press that his name was used to post comments on an article about Dwight and Steven Hammond, a father and son who were recently sentenced to five years in prison for setting fires on BLM property near Diamond, Ore.

The comments referred to the Hammonds as “clowns” and defended the actions of BLM in pursuing criminal charges against them.

Allum told us that although he didn’t support the Hammonds’ actions, he thought the five-year sentences were excessive and the government’s prosecution over zealous. The comments didn’t reflect his attitudes, which he said were well-known among his colleagues at BLM.

After checking the Internet Protocol address used to make the comments, Capital Press found the comments were posted from a computer that belongs to the BLM.

Michael Campbell, a public information officer for BLM, said the employee’s actions violated the BLM’s “robust social media policy,” under which only authorized officials can represent the agency on social media sites.

Not quite. The employee didn’t represent himself (or herself) as the BLM on our site. The employee instead assumed Allum’s identity and surreptitiously vented against the Hammonds and readers who made comments supporting them. All on government time, using government equipment.

It would seem the purpose of the posts was as much to embarrass Allum as vilify supporters.

Whether BLM appreciates it or not, the employee diminished the agency in the eyes local farmers and ranchers and bolstered a popular perception that government workers have too much time on their hands.

Allum deserves an apology, and the responsible employee needs to be shown the door.

Tahoe Restoration Act of 2015 Passes House Natural Resources Committee

CA. Congressman Tom McClintock

From CA Congressman Tom McClintock newsletter:

The Lake Tahoe Restoration Act of 2015 (H.R. 3382) was approved by the House Natural Resources Committee on October 8th. The bill is authored by Congressman McClintock and Congressman Mark Amodei of Nevada. The legislation focuses resources on fire prevention and additional measures to protect the lake from the introduction of invasive species.

“The House measure is specifically designed — after extensive input from fire districts throughout the Tahoe region — to reduce excess fuel loads in the Tahoe Basin before they burn. It streamlines the planning process that has severely hampered past attempts at forest management,” remarked Congressman McClintock. “It calls for new revenues generated within the Tahoe Basin to stay in the Tahoe Basin for environmental improvements. It also augments efforts to protect the lake from invasive species that have already devastated many other lakes in the West.”

“For the last eight years, Tahoe legislation has been introduced in the Senate and has not moved off the Senate floor,” continued Congressman McClintock. “This bill has been carefully crafted to fit within the budget parameters set by Congress and it addresses the two most immediate environmental threats to the Tahoe Basin. I believe this bill has an excellent prospect for passage out of the House.”

The bill:

— Expedites active forest management and fuel reduction projects consistent with the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit land and resource management plan.

— Guarantees that funds generated by timber sales and recreation will stay in the Tahoe Basin to provide for further fuels management and promote public access.

— Supplements and expands the current inspection regimen of boats launched into Lake Tahoe and provides for fee-supported private, local, and state inspection and decontamination stations.

— Provides for disposition of federal-owned parcels of land in urban areas and acquisition of in-fill parcels within the national forest to streamline management and reduce the inefficient “checkerboard” pattern.

— Makes the involvement of local governments mandatory in land acquisition decisions that directly impact their communities.

— Promotes tourism by prioritizing public access to federal lands.

Pumpkin peril: Federal website’s jack o’lantern warning cites climate change

Clean Water ACT - EPA

PNP comment: Now any holiday that brings joy to Americans is under attack. This one is downright silly. — Editor Liz Bowen

 

There’s good reason to be frightened of those jack o’lanterns on porches across America this week, according to the federal government, and it isn’t just candlelit, jagged-toothed grins.

Pumpkins, according to the Department of Energy’s website, contribute to global warming by decomposing into methane, a harmful greenhouse gas the federal government says is 20 times as scary as carbon dioxide.

“With the passing of Halloween, millions of pounds of pumpkins have turned from seasonal decorations to trash destined for landfills, adding to more than 254 million tons of municipal solid waste produced in the United States every year,” the agency warns. “This Halloween, think of turning this seasonal waste into energy as a very important ‘trick’ that can have a positive environmental and energy impact.”

” … I really don’t think pumpkins are the problem.”

– Larry Checkon, Pennsylvania Giant Pumpkin Growers Association

‘Waters’ rule affects many Yolo County farmers

Agriculture - California, Air, Climate & Weather, California Rivers, California water, Clean Water ACT - EPA, Federal gov & land grabs, Water rights, Water, Resources & Quality

Daily Democrat

California farmers and ranchers face much uncertainty about the new Clean Water Act rule by the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers that became effective in recent months.

The uncertainty grew, after a federal judge in North Dakota granted an injunction sought by 13 states to prevent the rule from taking effect, and as specialists finalized work on a map that shows as much as 95 percent of California’s land area might fall under the rule’s jurisdiction.

Known alternately as the Waters of the U.S. Rule or the Clean Water Rule, the provision aims to regulate small streams, tributaries and wetlands. Opponents of the rule say it greatly expands federal jurisdiction over many landscape features found on private lands — including farm, ranch and forest lands — and may ultimately require additional permits and increase areas that would be placed under restricted use.

Kari Fisher, California Farm Bureau Federation associate counsel, said that soon after the federal court injunction was granted, the EPA released a statement saying the injunction applies only to those 13 states involved in the North Dakota litigation. While some have interpreted the injunction as applying to all states, Fisher said the rule remains in effect for the 37 states not involved in the litigation, including California.

“For California, EPA’s position is that the rule is effective and enforceable,” Fisher said. “Farmers and ranchers need to be aware of the rule’s potential impacts to their farming operations.”

San Joaquin County winegrape grower Brad Goehring said the waters of the U.S. rule is damaging to agriculture.

“Most everything is now considered a water of the U.S., and permitting for farmers will be too costly. This is basically criminalizing farming,” Goehring said. “I think it is the biggest violation of private property rights in the history of the United States, because the rule is so broad and it encompasses everything.”

The new rule has the potential to qualify up to 97 percent of Yolo County’s 653,450 acres, according to the Yolo County Farm Bureau. Some 60,896 acres is winthin a 100-foot buffer, while an additional 527,697 acres lies within a 1,500-foot buffer. That makes 631,094 acres which could potentially be affected.

The 9 Essentials to Sheltering in Place

Prepare - Emergency

The 9 Essentials to Sheltering in Place

When it comes to emergencies there’s items that are necessities and there’s items that are luxuries.Generally speaking you want to tackle the necessities first and then add additional items to increase the comfort level of the situation.

Here are 9 essentials you should have during a sheltering in place scenario, (keep in mind that you may be required to shelter in place somewhere besides your own home):

1.Water– Plan on 1 Gallon per person, per day for drinking and sanitation.Our water storage category includes items like Datrex Water Pouches and 5-Gallon Water Containers that can help you with your water needs.

2.Food – A supply of 3-5 days per person.For a lot of people the first couple of days can be supplemented by what’s already in the house.However, to insure that you always have your emergency food supply ready to go I recommend one of our 3-21 Day Food Supplies.

3.Clothes – In your 72-Hour Kit you want to be sure you have an extra pair of clothes and shoes for each person in your group/family.

4.Medications – It’s a good practice to collect 3-5 days worth of any prescription medications that you’re taking.Also be sure to note expiration dates so that you can rotate them appropriately.

5.Flashlight -When it comes to flashlights, don’t go cheap.There are good flashlights out their that are very affordable.Here’s some great options: Ultra-Bright 3-LED Dynamo Flashlight, 12-LED StreamLine Flashlight, or the ULTIMATE Dynamo Solar Powered Survival Radio.

6.Can Opener – This is another item that you want to be sure is high quality.There’s nothing worse than a can opener that won’t open cans.

7.Radio – The ideal option for a radio is one that has multiple options for powering the radio including, batteries, hand-crank, AC/DC, and/or

solar.The ULTIMATE Dynamo Solar Powered Survival Radio is a great option for this.

8.Hygiene Kit -Start with just the basics, soap, toilet paper and a toothbrush is enough to get most people by for 3-5 days.

9.First Aid Kit – Again, from a starting point perspective make sure that your first-aid kit at lest includes, antiseptic, gloves, bandages and your non-prescription medicine such as aspirin or Tylenol.

Put these 9 essential items in place and you’ve got a good foundation for a sheltering in place emergency kit!
