Dam meeting

For those who know the importance of saving the four hydro-electric Klamath River dams, please attend a special meeting tonight, Oct. 10th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Winema Hall at the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds. Sorry, it is short notice.

But, our Siskiyou Co. Supervisors have been trying to schedule a meeting with major players regarding the Klamath dams issue. It finally happened — with a short window of opportunity.

This is a Siskiyou Co. Supervisors special board meeting.

After secret meetings were held, last year, in Sacramento and Portland by the 2016 newly-formed non-profit group that continues to work to destroy the Klamath River dams, our supervisors told Klamath River Renewal Corp – no more shenanigans or secret meetings! Even Congressman Doug LaMalfa and his staff were left in the dark as the new non-profit KRRC did not communicate well with either the congressman or Siskiyou County.

KRRC’s Executive Director and Vice President have committed to attend this meeting. Also attending is Alan Mikkelsen, who is the new Acting Deputy Commissioner for the Bureau of Reclamation.

Elizabeth Nielsen, Siskiyou Co. Natural Resources Specialist, sent out an announcement explaining the purpose of the workshop is for KRRC to update the public regarding their September 2016 requests to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to take ownership and then remove four dams on the Klamath River.

KRRC should also discuss their past work and permits with state and federal agencies, other stakeholders, as well as past meetings with Siskiyou County and their (lack of) outreach throughout the county.

It is good that Deputy Commissioner Mikkelsen has agreed to attend and discuss the Dept. of Interior’s role in the Klamath dams destruction process and his outreach efforts to Siskiyou County. Mikkelsen is a close advisor to Dept. of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. It is imperative we let him know about the disastrous environmental and water pollution that demolition of the four dams will cause.

Our Siskiyou Supervisors still have major concerns and have made requests for information and permit verifications, which have not been sufficiently answered or addressed. There will be time set aside for the public to provide input and comment. Please do.


Remember to get your tickets to support saving the Klamath dams. The fundraiser prime rib dinner hosted by the Siskiyou Co. Water Users Assoc. will be held this Sat. evening. Doors open with a no-host bar at 5 p.m. and the dinner is at 6 p.m. Grill master is Dave Tyler. Tickets are $30 per person. Call Louise Gliatto at 530-842-5443 ASAP.

We must retain our hydroelectric facilities. The dams improve flows in the Klamath River in the summer and fall, provide vital flood protection in the winter and produce fish at Iron Gate Hatchery.

Veterans Parade

Please consider participating in the 17th Annual Veterans’ Parade in Etna on Sat. Nov. 4, 2017.

Veterans: Please let “we the people” honor you for your service. You can drive your own vehicle or get several buddies to join you.

Organizations and individuals: You are invited to participate as a way to pay tribute to our U.S. military service members.

It is so easy to enter: Just call me at 530-467-3515. The parade will stage at the Etna High School at 10 a.m. and it starts at 11 p.m.

POW meeting

Andrew Hurlimann, president of Scott Valley Protect Our Water, brought its monthly meeting to order on Sept. 28, 2017. He announced that California Concealed Weapons classes are being held in Scott Valley. Call Andrew at 467-3146 for more info.

Erin Ryan, staff for Congressman LaMalfa, brought up the tax reform issue that was a hot button in Sept. She said, “It isn’t done yet!” and explained several of the proposals in the framework.

Erin said the Siskiyou/Cascade National Monument did end up on the “short list” for possible reduction of acreage. Of course, the Greenies are fit to be tied, but removing hundreds of thousands of additional acreage that will not be managed for forest and environmental health and safety is ridiculous.

Ray Haupt, Siskiyou Co. Supervisor for Dist. 5, discussed the local fires. He was able to get a meeting at the Incident Command Center fire camp near Etna for Congressman LaMalfa. Ray said that the new owners of the forest around the Scott Valley floor is now owned by EcoTrust Forest Management and the business actually wants to place mobile sawmills facilities in the valley to process their trees – some of which were burned in the menacing Wallow Fire. That would be fabulous!

A San Francisco PBS station did an interview with Ray regarding the massive fires we have each year. He mentioned the very unhealthy smoke we had to breathe for over 6 weeks and asked the listeners to stop funding environmental projects as they actually stop the healthy thinning and management of forests resulting in catastrophic fires and smoke. Ray added that eight out of the 12 communities in his district were under some sort of evacuation notice this summer. No, not good!

Ray orchestrated getting Senator Ted Gaines up to Siskiyou County, who was then able to take a helicopter flight with Siskiyou Sheriff Jon Lopey and Siskiyou Co. Supervisors’ Board Chairman, Michael Kobseff. The senator was shocked when he actually witnessed the massive numbers of illegal cannabis grows. There is a huge new concentration of over 4,000 people in the Shasta Vista area specifically involved in cultivating cannabis resulting in a great deal of ground water contamination and raw sewage.

Senator Gaines supported our Siskiyou Supervisors when they approved a “Declaration of Emergency,” regarding the grows, and asked for help from CA. Governor Jerry Brown for eradication.

Last Friday, Gov. Brown sent a letter that basically says “no”. What? Does he like pot? I am speechless!

Siskiyou Sheriff’s Office Seeks Assistance Locating Missing Endangered Person

Sheriff Jon Lopey, Siskiyou Sheriff's report

October 9, 2017

On October 8, 2017 at about 12:40 p.m., the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) received a report of a “suspicious vehicle” from an off-duty law enforcement officer.  The officer was hunting with a family member when he encountered an abandoned vehicle on a United States Forest Service (USFS) road in the Klamath National Forest (near Cade Mountain).  The vehicle appeared to be abandoned and a vehicular door was opened.  A California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer and SCSO deputy responded to USFS Road 17N38 near USFS Road 19N01 and the vehicle, a silver SUV with a Florida license plate affixed, was located and found to be abandoned.  A wallet and cellular phone were found in the vehicle. There was evidence of animal infestation within the interior of the vehicle, and dried blood was found, raising concerns about the prior occupant’s welfare.

Identification in the vehicle was found that identified the possible missing/endangered person as Mr. Alexander Navarro Rivera, 59 years-old, with a Florida address.  SCSO has initiated a search and rescue (SAR) mission in an effort to locate Mr. Rivera.  Thus far, he has not been found and no sign of him has been reported by federal, state, or local law enforcement agencies.  SCSO’s Major Crimes Unit, including its forensic technician, is also assisting with the investigation.

According to Sheriff Jon Lopey, “We are very concerned about Mr. Rivera’s possible disappearance and welfare.  We will know more about what happened when we get a report from our SCSO SAR Coordinator and investigators forensically process the vehicle.  Anyone with information about Mr. Rivera’s possible disappearance is urged to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office 24-hour Dispatch Center at (530) 841-2900.”

EPA moves to repeal Obama’s Clean Power Plan coal regs

Clean Water ACT - EPA, Federal gov & land grabs

PNP comment: Hooray !!! America can get back to work! — Editor Liz Bowen

Fox News.com

October 9, 2017

EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt announced Monday that the Trump administration is moving to scrap the Clean Power Plan, the Obama administration’s signature regulatory program to curb emissions from coal-fired power plants.

Pruitt made the announcement at an event in Hazard, Ky., casting the previous policy as unfair.

“That rule really was about picking winners and losers,” Pruitt said. “The past administration was unapologetic, they were using every bit of power, authority to use the EPA to pick winners and losers on how we pick electricity in this country. That is wrong.”

Bundy: Bunkerville Standoff: Judge Navarro Blinks!

Bundy Battle - Nevada, Bureau of Land Management, CORRUPTION, Courts, CRIMINAL, Federal gov & land grabs

I do wonder how the defendants will react to another delay, as they have already been detained for 21 months without a trial.

Redoubt News.com

October 6, 2017

By Shari Dovale

Today brought a full day of court hearings in the Bunkerville Standoff trial.

The Tier 1 defendants, considered the leaders of the Bunkerville Protest, were scheduled to begin jury selection on October 10th. Several motion hearings were scheduled for this week.

Then the Las Vegas shooting took place on October 1st.

The day began with Pete Santilli changing his plea to guilty for Felony Conspiracy for his role in the protest. He was released on his own recognizance with several stipulations to be followed before his scheduled sentencing on Jan 11, 2018. It is expected for Santilli to receive time-served plus probation. It was noted on the record that Santilli will not be testifying at the upcoming trial.

Ryan and Ammon Bundy have not been in the courtroom for their hearings. They have protested the mandatory strip searches performed by the Pahrump Detention Center. It was not much different today.

Judge Gloria Navarro finally seemed concerned this week that a resolution could not be found for this issue. Both defendants have made it clear that they want to attend the proceedings but were being singled out by guards at the prison for retaliatory action in the form of these strip searches.

Evidence was put forth that indicated the Pahrump Detention Center may be going too far with these particular defendants. Judge Navarro finally agreed that a change was appropriate and ordered the men to be moved to the Henderson Jail. The order included that the men were not to be stripped before leaving Pahrump. This order covered Ryan and Ammon Bundy, as well as Ryan Payne.

During the hearings today, Ryan Bundy was denied his right to represent himself. The judge felt that he was not making sense to the court, and could be getting some very bad advice from someone on his legal team.

Bundy’s assigned stand-by counsel, Angela Dows, requested, and was granted, a withdrawl from the case. A new attorney was assigned to represent Bundy, until it was determined that the scheduling conflicted would not allow him to accept the case. A new attorney will be found for Ryan next week.

For a short time, there was discussion on Ryan being moved to the third trial, so as to give a new attorney time to prepare for the case. AUSA Myhre objected to that and stated that Ryan knew the case and could get his attorney up to speed. This might have been possible if the attorney could have been secured.

It is also to be determined as to whether or not the attorney will be fully handling the case or whether it will be a stand-by attorney with Ryan defending himself. Despite the problems in the courtroom earlier, Judge Navarro made indications that she is open to reinstating Ryan if she felt he was competent.

Quite a lot of discussion ensued on whether to delay the trial, or even change the venue, due to the shooting event on October 1st.

A request was made to move the trial to Reno. This was denied by Judge Navarro.

Several delays, from 30-90 days, were requested and considered. Navarro agreed to a short delay and scheduled a status hearing on October 24th, with a new tentative trial date set on October 30th.

Todd Leventhal, attorney for Scott Drexler, stated in court that he had based his schedule on the original trial date and could not change his plans. He may not be available for a trial during the holidays. Watch for motions on this issue in the near future.

I do wonder how the defendants will react to another delay, as they have already been detained for 21 months without a trial.

It is understandable that Judge Navarro had no control over the issues requiring the delay, but neither did these defendants. They deserve more than the benefit of the doubt, at this point.

Guv Brown spent $250,000,000 on Plans for Delta Tunnel Scam

By Stephen Frank on Oct 05, 2017 08:50 pm

If built the Delta tunnel will cause our already high water rates to go up by a factor of 3.  Could you afford to live in California when that happens?  Do you want to pay that much money in exchange for water tunnels that do not create a single drop of new water—just moves water […]

Siskiyou Co: Cancer takes life of UCCE Farm Advisor Steve Orloff

Agriculture - California

PNP comment: Many times for nearly 20 years, I interviewed Steve for news articles. He was always helpful and always working on experiments that would aid the farmers in drought or reduced water situations. Siskiyou County was lucky to have him as its Farm Advisor. Steve will be sorely missed! — Editor Liz Bowen

Orloff worked for UC ANR for 33 years, including 20-plus years as a Siskiyou County farm advisor

Cary Blake | Oct 06, 2017

Western Farm Press

Steve Orloff, University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) county director and farm advisor at Siskiyou County, has died of cancer, according to an online message posted by Rob Wilson, director of the Intermountain Research and Extension Center located at Tulelake.

Orloff worked for UC’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Division for 33 years, including 20-plus years as a Siskiyou County farm advisor in Northern California.

“His tremendous knowledge and overwhelming support for agriculture will be deeply missed,” Wilson said. “We have lost a dear friend and valued colleague! On behalf of all the IREC staff our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”

Arrangements for Orloff were not available at press time.

Glenda Humiston, UC ANR vice-president, said, “I’m sure that many of you have worked with this kind and affable man, whether it be at county director meetings, on alfalfa research or Program Council or other projects. We’ll all miss Steve’s good nature, willingness to help others and his expertise.”

Humiston shared a message from the Orloff family, which said in part, “He will be deeply missed for his kind and generous heart, as he so freely shared his knowledge and experience with anyone who asked for his help. But anyone who knows Steve will especially miss him tremendously for his sense of humor and fun-loving spirit.”

Orloff conducted research and educational programs in alfalfa, irrigated pasture, small grains, and non-crop weed control with a focus on pest management, irrigation, variety adaptation, and general production practices.

Orloff graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in geography from San Diego State University in 1978, followed by a Master of Science degree in general agricultural science from Cal Poly in 1983.

Published in Siskiyou Daily News, Yreka, CA

To wake Monday morning and hear of the horrific domestic attack in Las Vegas was shocking, so very sad and, as President Donald Trump said, gave way to much grief. I appreciate his sincere and caring statements as he addressed our nation and I echo his feelings, when he claimed the shooting during Jason Aldean’s country music concert “was an act of pure evil!” The president provided comfort for our nation, when he reminded us, “It is love that defines us.”

News reports said that many folks naturally began helping those who were wounded or frightened. What a great thing to know. There are so many good people in our country and their good works are much too often lost in the crowd of selfish voices we hear in the technical world.

President Trump said that he and the first lady pray for our nation – “to find unity and peace.” I agree and will do the same. This polarization has gone too far in too many ways. It is time to turn to God, remember the great sacrifice that true love is and fall on our knees in humble supplication for that unity and peace.

Good news

Now for some good news: During the Scott Valley Protect Our Water meeting, last Thursday night, Ray Haupt announced he will run for a second term as Siskiyou Co. Supervisor of Dist. 5. The crowd applauded and several individuals thanked Ray for his tenacity working to save the Klamath dams, pushing for more raids and arrests on illegal cannabis grows and helping local land owners fight to protect their water rights from intrusive state agencies. He also serves on several national forestry groups that are working to change policy and improve the management of national forests.

Yay, I totally support Ray and all the good work he has done for his constituents and the entire county.


Richard Marshall explained about the Citizens for Fair Representation lawsuit that was in a Sacramento court earlier in the month. The State of California has asked the judge to dismiss the case and she did not do that. CFR attorneys consider that a win as they will be allowed to amend their case that demands more representation for rural counties in the state legislature.

More than 100 supporters of the State of Jefferson attended the hearing, but less than half were allowed in the courtroom as it was not large enough to handle the spectators. CFR asked, in advance of the hearing, if the judge would move the case to a larger room. That suggestion was ignored.


Richard Marshall, president of the Siskiyou Co. Water Users Assoc., announced a fundraiser dinner will be held on Sat. Oct. 14, 2017 at Winema Hall at the fairgrounds in Yreka. Doors open at 5 p.m. with prime rib dinner prepared by grill master Dave Tyler and his wife, Kathy Tyler. Price is $30 per person and Friends of the Fair will offer a no host bar.

Richard said the pro-dam-taker-outers have been quiet lately, but there is a deadline of Dec. 31, 2017 for the non-profit Klamath River Renewal Corporation to obtain or side-step several permits. He said activities are going-on behind the scenes and, as if on cue, several newspapers reported on Friday that Allan Mikkelsen, a high-level Dept. of Interior appointed official, just stated the DOI will not interfere with plans to remove four dams from the Klamath River. Yep, you heard right!

Ray Haupt and Congressman Doug LaMalfa have met with Mikkelsen, within the past month, explaining the devastation that will occur to the environment, water quality and killing of an Endangered Species Act listed species – the coho — if the dams are destroyed. So, far Mikkelsen has dug-in his heels, but Ray and our congressman have not given up.

So, the fundraiser is coming at the right time to raise funds to save the Klamath dams. Richard said that our power bills will increase substantially if the dams are removed.

“We will also lose the ability to control instream-flow in the river, lose vital flood protections and the fish hatchery at Iron Gate,” said Richard. Most importantly, Rich explains that without the dams the enviros will call on the water in the Scott and Shasta Rivers and that will take away most of the water rights allotments of farmers and ranchers. Agriculture can’t survive without water.

“This is a huge risk to our way of life,” said Richard.

There will be two dynamic speakers sharing the spotlight. Both are attorneys and both have fought battles for forestry, farmers and water rights. They are James Buchal, who wrote “The Great Salmon Hoax” and participated in the Klamath Bucket Brigade back in the 2001 water shut-off to the Klamath Project farmers.

Larry Kogan has also worked on issues surrounding the Klamath Dams and will discuss the Klamath Hydro Settlement Agreement, as amended, and the role of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

You can get your tickets by calling Louise Gliatto at 530-842-5443 or Kathy Bergeron at 530-842-4400.


This Sat. Oct. 7, 2017 is a special barbeque dinner supporting the Veterans Assistance Program, which provides emergency assistance to Siskiyou Co. veterans and widows. Getting fire wood to those in need is a major project for this group.

It will be held at the Siskiyou Golden Fair Beer Garden at 5 p .m. with raffles and an auction. Tickets are $15 for ages 12 and over; $5 for ages 5 to 12; and younger children are free. Entertainment will be presented by the Yreka High School music program. For tickets call Jay Dancer at 530-598-6979 or Jennifer Bryan 530-917-9478.


The frost Monday morning likely took out what was left of our garden. Yahoo! Will miss the veggies, but not the work!
