State recommends designating 37 miles of the Mokelumne as a California Wild and Scenic River 

River groups and water agency managers praise final state report

We're happy to share good news today!
On April 18, the California Natural Resources Agency issued its final Wild and Scenic report and recommendations for the Mokelumne River. The report recommends adding 37 miles of the river from just below Salt Springs Dam to just above Pardee Reservoir to the California Wild and Scenic Rivers System. The report was praised by river advocates and local water agency managers alike in a CNRA press release. 

Thanks to the more than 1,600 people who commented on the study! The overwhelming majority of comments were in favor of Wild and Scenic designation.

While this is a big step, we're not done yet. Securing permanent protection for the Moke will require state legislation. To make that happen, our local officials need to hear from you!  You can bet they're going to hear from Wild and Scenic opponents dismayed that the state found what we've known all along: the Mokelumne is a special state resource and worthy of permanent protection.

Please come to speak up for the river you love at one of these water agency meetings this week:

-- East Bay Muncipal Utililty District board, Tuesday, April 24 in Oakland

-- Calaveras County Water District board, Wednesday, April 25 at 1 pm in San Andreas


-- Amador Water Agency board meeting Thursday, April 26, at 9 am in Sutter Hill. 


Please urge the water agency directors to support the recommendations in the study that will both protect the river and local water supply and support moving forward with state Wild and Scenic River legislation.

The agendas and location information are on the EBMUD,CCWD, and AWA websites.

Soon, we expect the Amador and Calaveras County boards of supervisors to weigh in on this. We'll let you know when those meetings are scheduled.

For more information

For more information about the river or this alert, please contact Foothill Conservancy at 209-223-3508 or send us an e-mail.
Thanks for your continued support. 
Together we will save the Moke for good!

The Jefferson Messenger - Ed 8 Apr 21 Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 8 . April 21, 2018 . Volume 2
THE ONLY VALID STATE SPLIT IS...
THE STATE OF JEFFERSON

The State of Jefferson in no way supports or endorses the Three State Movement nor any other state split fly-by-night idea. Proponents of the State of Jefferson stand for representation, to restore Constitutional and personal property rights, and to reduce overburdening taxes and regulations.

This three-state split idea in no way addresses these values, in fact the northern 21 counties will be worse off, remain underrepresented, and be victim to the same urban politics and politicians that have decimated California and everything we are striving to restore. Besides, the fact that the mechanism of trying to split the state by vote is not supported in the Constitution Article IV Section 3 unless by some miracle, the courts can be convinced that a people’s initiative is equivalent to the legislature.

The State of Jefferson does NOT support this effort, nor do we think it will fix the ills of California. What it does do is create three (3) Democratic states out of one - which would send four (4) additional progressive US Senators to Washington DC. This would not affect the Federal House as that number was illegally fixed at 435 in 1911 (See Article the First).

Edited excerpts from fellow Jeffersonians


GREAT SCOTT!

In the El Dorado County community on Sunday, May 6th, more than 30 miles of beautiful country roads, centered around Scott Road will be closed to where only cyclists and pedestrians are permitted for 7 hours. Does anyone besides me think this would be a great opportunity for SOJ supporters to have their colors and signs posted along the 30-miles stretch of Scott Road? Neighboring Counties are encouraged to come one, come all, post those signs, flags and posters, wear the State of Jefferson colors proudly, participate if you are so inclined - there is no charge. Be seen.
 

The ride is promoted by Sacramento County, El Dorado County, City of Rancho Cordova, City of Folsom and 50 Corridor Chambers of Commerce - imagine the exposure of Jefferson to these entities.

Riders will be entering the ride course from one of four points:  White Rock Road and Luyung Drive (Rancho Cordova), Placerville Road (Folsom), White Rock Road near Latrobe Road (El Dorado Hills) and Stonehouse Road (Rancho Marietta). Perhaps these locations would be ideal to display SOJ signs, flags and posters.

OPINION

Thomas Jefferson once said in a letter to Miles King; "Nay, we have heard it said that there Is not a Quaker or a Baptist, a Presbyterian or an Episcopalian, a Catholic or a Protestant In heaven; that, on entering that gate, we leave those badges of schism behind, and find ourselves united in those principles only In which God has united us all."

Thomas Jefferson is the one responsible for this Separation of Church and State thing. He was not an Atheist. He loved his God but just did not go in for all the pageantry that differing religions offer. And he did not want all that minutia cluttering up the gearbox of our government. But he wanted God to be in our hearts and to help our leaders guide us through our troubles. I'm just saying that if you think Separation means no God in government then you need to research that a little more.

Foothill Conservancy: Meet, Greet, Eat, and honor Katherine and Pete! Sat May 19

It’s time for the Foothill Conservancy’s annual fundraising dinner. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 19 at 4:00 p.m. at the Karmère Vineyards & Winery, 11970 Shenandoah Road, in Plymouth. 
The event will feature delicious meat and vegetarian offerings from Taste Restaurant and Wine Bar, no-host craft beer and fine Karmère wines, live music from Amador’s own Wicked Sisters band, and a fabulous raffle, live and silent auctions with special prizes including mountain resort and cabin lodging, meals, wine, and more. Tickets are $65.
This year’s dinner will honor long-time Foothill Conservancy President Katherine Evatt and Vice-President Pete Bell for their contributions to local and regional conservation. The Volcano-area residents are among the Conservancy’s founding members. Evatt is the past president of the Sierra Nevada Alliance and the 2015 recipient of Friends of the River’s Capitol River Award. Bell serves as a director of the Pacific Watershed and Forest Land Stewardship Council and is a past recipient of Friends of the River’s Peter H. Behr Award.
 “This should be a wonderful event,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director, Amanda Nelson. “We have really great items in the raffle and silent and live auctions, and honoring Katherine and Pete makes it all the more special.”
Tickets to the event are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets.
For more information, contact Carolyn Schooley at 209-223-3508 or Carolyn@foothillconservancy.org.  end


Lynn Morgan campaign signs stolen and vandalized

PIONEER, CA- Large signs supporting the re-election of Amador County District 3 Supervisor Lynn Morgan have recently been stolen or vandalized near Buckhorn. A few weeks ago, Lynn and her husband, Pat Minyard, discovered that a 4’x 4’ sign had been stolen from one of Morgan’s supporter’s private property along Highway 88.

Then on Friday afternoon, April 13, Minyard noticed that one of Lynn’s 8’x 4’ signs and another 4’ x 4’ sign had been defaced by someone who had taped signs reading “We Miss Ted” on them. The signs apparently refer to former supervisor Theodore “Ted” Novelli, whom Morgan defeated in 2014. He is not a candidate for election this year.


“I’m sure Ted and Jennifer aren’t happy to see this,” Morgan said. “They’re very respectful of private property rights. It’s truly unfortunate and disappointing that this sort of malicious, illegal activity has occurred in a local political campaign. It’s sad to see the kind of disrespect now commonplace on the national political scene show up here in Amador County."

“I have no reason to believe that Jeff Brown is behind any of this, or supports it,” Morgan added. “But I’d like to see him condemn the theft and vandalism. I would certainly do that if his signs were damaged or stolen.”

“We’ll be reporting these acts of vandalism to the Sheriff,” said Minyard. “I know how hard Lynn works for District 3, and she’s a proponent for civil debate as fundamental to our democracy. We replaced the stolen sign and hope to clean up the ones we found Friday, but really, isn’t our county better than this?”

For more about Morgan and her campaign, or to request a sign, see www.re-electlynn.com

Jefferson Messenger - Edition 7 . Volume 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 7 . April 7, 2018 . Volume 2
ITS YOUR TURN JEFFERSON
 
Starting April 8th on the Jefferson KAHI Radio Show, it’s time for you to sound off.  This Sunday, we’ll be providing a rundown of how we got here, but then you take over the airwaves.

What will Jefferson look like?

We’ve been battling for four and a half years, but for what?  We all have our vision of Liberty, now it’s time to put that down on paper.

How do you want to live Jefferson?

What is your definition of Freedom?

Under what rule set does your new government operate?  What are the lines they are never to cross?

You all have marched on Sacramento, sent in your donations, called your state representatives, written letters to the same and to their federal counterparts as well.  You’ve done interviews, been spurned by the media, called various colorful names, supported and defended your rights under both constitutions and been attached to extreme groups you have nothing to do with.  So what do you want?

Is it to be left alone, chart your own path, be free to prosper with the resources at your command?  It is time to define your (not mine) utopian dream of a state under which you can be proud.  It’s been decades since the United States added a star to old glory.  Now is the time, our time, but we better have a clear vision of what we want.  1.9 million opinions must coalesce into a single consciousness under which we can all live.

Placer and El Dorado Counties recently launched their Jefferson radio show and will use this platform over the next several weeks to have Jefferson sound off.  You’ve been fighting for a while now.  You’ve been fighting long and hard against something.  Now is the time to define what you are fighting for.
 
Each Sunday at 10am on KAHI 950 AM we want you to call in and begin that conversation and let others know your hearts and minds.  You all get to build this thing from scratch.  Study our US Constitution and be prepared to launch the greatest state in the nation.  It’s time to put aside our anger for an hour each week and dream that dream of our vision under the framework we want to live and thrive.  Contact the show at 1-800-950-5244 or 1-530-885-3565.

What will be covered?  Structure of government, unalienable rights, education, taxation, justice, elections, and anything else you want to discuss.
Our time is now and it’s time to put pen to paper.  Let’s share the vision.

PUBLIUS
HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH?

California is well known for its outrageous and inexplicable legislative acts that range into the ridiculous, illegal, and unconstitutional. This is the California that:
  • Is pushing a bullet train that is under speed, over cost, ignores the wishes of the voters and tax payers, and benefits the financial interests of the family of our federal senator
  • Levies a fire tax, and calls it a fee
  • Refuses to spend allocated bond money on repairs and maintenance on the Oroville dam while using state dollars and resources to search for oil on the governor's personal property
  • Passes unconstitutional gun and ammunition control laws restricting the rights of its citizens
  • Imposes agency regulations that drive job-providing businesses out of the state
  • Continues to raise gas taxes and vehicle fees to finance legislators' pet programs
  • Makes unconstitutional and illegal agreements with foreign powers
  • Supports an unconstitutional and illegal secession from the United States
  • Has legislators currently serving prison sentences for illegal schemes, who have resigned from office for lewd behavior, and who openly brag that their illegal immigrant relatives are living and working in the state using stolen Social Security numbers
  • Tolerates sanctuary cities where murders are going unpunished

This is the same California that now demands that our county honor its unconstitutional and illegal sanctuary state law, which, in actuality, is null and void based on Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the U.S. Constitution.

I have had enough, many citizens of the Jefferson Counties have had enough, and the Boards of Supervisors should have had enough by now. As employees and representatives of the people, the time has come for the supervisors to stand up, honor their oaths of office, and announce to Sacramento that they will not comply. They should not be complicit in the illegal and unconstitutional acts emanating from Sacramento. They should not put the counties at risk of incurring federal penalties and sanctions.

The time has come for the supervisors to tell Sacramento that ignoring the rights and wishes of the people comes at a serious cost, and the time has come to look at an alternative to the mono-party system of rule that our state legislative bodies are inflicting on us. Tell Sacramento that the time has come for a state that represents the people. Tell Sacramento that the time has come.

Supervisors, stand up against sanctuary law
