Scott Valley POW
NEXT MEETING IS Thurs. Aug. 27, 2015
at the Fort Jones Community Center, Fort Jones, California
POW stands for —
Protect Our Water
We are a little agricultural valley
in the mountains of Siskiyou County —
at the very top of the State of California.
Scott River is located in Scott Valley over a range of hills from Interstate 5 near county seat Yreka.
Population in the entire Siskiyou County is 45,000;
Population in Scott Valley is roughly 5,000.
Photo above is —
Scott River in June 2010 at the south end of Scott Valley. This is taken from the old dump road bridge near Callahan about a mile from where the South Fork and the East Fork of the river join and start heading down through the valley.
The snow pack in the mountains behind Mt. Bolivar was at 140 percent in 2010 winter and spring, which provided lots of water in May, June and July.
When the snow pack is melted, the river volume drops dramatically.
About Scott Valley POW —
Scott Valley Protect Our Water organized in May 2010 as an ad-hoc group of like-minded individuals, who have decided to stand-up against governments, its agencies and officials, when those governments, agencies and officials are invasive and threaten OUR Individual and Property Rights.
General meetings are open to like-minded individuals.
Those who do not agree with the Scott Valley POW Mission Statement are not welcome.
We say “NO” to those regulations that are attempting to destroy our Constitutional Rights.
We will not submit,
nor sign our rights away;
we will stand on those
with all the resources at our command.
Civil Disobedience is legal
We will be calm. We will be peaceful. But, we will support one another.
If the California Department of Fish and Game Wardens step foot on your property — with just a phone call to our Phone Tree — the word will be sent out and we will immediately drive to your property and stand with you — against these THREATENING government officials.
We realize that saying “NO” to a government official is civil disobedience, but once again we claim protection under the U.S. Constitution. Civil disobedience is legal and, in this instance, a healthy fix to out-of-control government agencies.
April 3, 2010 at the North end of Scott Valley. Bruce Walker had just turned over the soil for planting. Yep, that was another skiff of snow.
This is taken in just about the same spot, only this was the end of July after the field has been irrigated by wheel-line on and off for two months. Nice crop of alfalfa hay, Bruce and Lisa.
