News in Jefferson Country from Pie N Politics.com Editor Liz Bowen: It is time to post NO Trespassing signs on your property. Recently, Karuk Tribal Council Member Leaf Hillman has been spotted in Scott Valley and according to Hillman, he is looking to cause problems for farmers and ranchers.
There are 90 fish screens located on irrigation ditch diversions throughout Scott Valley. Monkey-wrenching is abusive and destructive.
If Hillman or anyone else crosses your private property, he is trespassing. Leaders of the Karuk Tribe have been accused of planting juvenile coho in the past and cried “fish kill” blaming others for the coho deaths.
This year, landowners must be especially vigilant, states Scott Valley Protect Our Water President Tom Pease. Carry a camera, document and report trespass to POW leaders and call 9-1-1 on all trespassers.
PNP comment: Correction: Leaf Hillman is not a Council member of the Karuk Tribe as reported. He is in employee of the Tribe. — Editor Liz Bowen
