The Jefferson Messenger - Ed. 16 Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 16. August 25, 2018 . Volume 2

SOJ Special Anniversary Issue

Celebrating 5 Years
Thanks to the effort and coordination by Mark Baird, September 3, 2013, marks the date that the State of Jefferson movement officially got underway. That was the date the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors (BOS) voted 4 to 1 to separate from the State of California to form a proposed State named Jefferson. The proposal was joined by Modoc County BOS, on September 24. Glenn County followed in January of 2014.
It was Tehama County on July15, 2014, whose BOS voted unanimously to adopt a resolution supporting the declaration of withdrawal from California based on an advisory vote taken on a June ballot where the public voted 56% to 44% in favor of splitting the state. On July 22, 2014, the BOS of Sutter County unanimously adopted a resolution supporting a declaration and petition to the Legislature to withdraw from California to address a lack of representation.
On October 24, 2014, Modoc and Siskiyou delivered their declarations/petitions to the California Secretary of State. This was followed by eight counties on April 1, 2015.
January 6, 2016, was Declaration Day at the West Steps of the State Capitol when other counties filed their declarations/petitions, bringing the total to 21 Jefferson Counties seeking representation and/or to separate from the State. This year, Mariposa and Siskiyou Counties will be filing their declarations and giving us a new map with 23 Jefferson Counties.
Time to Hit the Reset Button
Think back to those years, 2014-15, when each of us were out gathering signatures on support statements to gain the numbers needed to file declarations/petitions, seeking equal/fair representation and/or to separate from the State. Remember Declaration Day, when bus loads and car loads of Jeffersonian's from 21 counties showed up at the capitol with our flags and signs celebrating this momentous day just a little over 2 years after it all began. This is also the day that we filed into our elected representatives offices dropping off information and talking to their staff. Unfortunately, all this fell on deaf ears.
A year later, a new effort got underway when on May 8, 2017, Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR) filed a lawsuit against Secretary of State Alex Padilla for lack of representation and dilution of vote not just for Jeffersonians but for all citizens of California's 58 counties.  When CFR is successful, this will be history in the making that could also affect representation in about 30 other states.
It is time to hit the reset button to expand and strengthen our base, to support Jefferson and join the battle for equal/fair representation in the State Legislature.
Yes, the support for Jefferson and recognition about the imbalance of representation has grown, but there is still much more work to be done. We are asking that all in the 23 counties hit the reset button and put forth a huge coordinated effort to hand out brochures, enter into dialogue and secure signatures on support statements. The forms should include a space for individual's name, phone number, email address and signature. Remember any age can sign the forms and you do not have to be a registered voter. This is also a great way to add contacts to your county email data base and also add subscribers to the Jefferson Messenger.
Jefferson and Citizens for Fair Representation is about the future of our children and grandchildren. We want to give all a voice in their future that includes their education, livelihood, health and safety and governing of the new state not to mention even naming their state.
It is and always has been about representation. Too many in your local communities are not aware of this and how far we have come. They don't know that Citizens for Fair Representation has a case in the United States Federal District Court in Sacramento. Unfortunately, the federal judge and Ninth Circuit have failed to appoint a three-judge panel to hear CFR's case.
It seemed only fitting that on the day we celebrate our nations independence, July 4, 2018, CFR's attorneys filed a Writ of Mandamus with the United States Supreme Court asking the court to compel the District Court and Ninth Circuit to impanel a three-judge court. Just three weeks later on August 27, SCOTUS issued a docket number.
Expanding Outreach and Fundraising
Last month, we passed the half way mark in our goal of $1 Million for the State of Jefferson Formation Legal Fund. Every dollar counts and is so appreciated. Some counties have had fundraising dinners, dessert auctions, yard sales and ice cream socials. The size of the event does not matter. It is a great way to get the word out about Jefferson that can include activities and fun for the whole family while also raising funds for the court case.
Get to know your local business people and ask them to donate gift certificates or goods and services for opportunity drawings. Gun and ammo store owners will usually work with you for more high dollar drawings. Reach out to other county committees and seek their advice. Start coordinating with your neighboring counties for town halls special meetings and events.
This election year gives us the platform to market Jefferson. Set up a table at a Wal Mart or other local markets for signature gathering and even registering voters. Tell people Jefferson through CFR is fighting for you to have a voice. If they want change in California and to have a say, then use your voice where it can count and vote on November 6. Talk about the gas tax, fire tax, water rationing and sanctuary state. You will find that most people are as angry about what is happening in California as you are and they welcome venting to like minded people. The fix is representation that can also take us down the path to a new state.
We urge all county committees to look at someone in your group that will take the lead and coordinate volunteers, to find locations and gather signatures. Perhaps another to coordinate sign and flag rallies on local roadways, business districts or freeway overpasses. Visit other local club or group meetings, Chamber of Commerce meetings and youth groups. Perhaps they might allow you to do a presentation and set up a booth while also supporting their efforts.
We are grateful to have the team of people throughout the counties of Jefferson who have contributed so much of their time, dollars and been the brains behind so many great fundraising and marketing efforts. We have had individuals who have offered to match donations in the thousands of dollars. We have indeed come far since 2013 and I wonder how many of you recognize what has been the biggest bonus for all of us over these last five years. Jefferson has brought us friendships that have not only formed in our own counties, but have stretched across county borders.
We know that for many it seems like things are not moving fast enough, but if you really think about the magnitude of what we are trying to accomplish, we have made major progress. Remember this is all grassroots, mainly at the local level, using the process allowed under the U.S. Constitution and that of the Judicial System. We have won over County Boards of Supervisors and City Councils. Many of our state and Congressional representatives now agree, “we must resolve the imbalance of representation in the State of California.”
You are all patriots but our battle for liberty has yet to be fully won. Therefore we ask once more that you give a little more of your time, share your ideas and reach out to others to help grow and strengthen our base. Jefferson is growing and twenty-three counties strong.

Jeanette Finicum, Guest of Shasta SOJ
Jeanette Finicum, widow of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, will be the guest at the SOJ Patriot’s meeting on Monday, September 10, located at 2570 S Bonnyview Road in Redding. The meeting begins at 5:30 PM.
Robert “LaVoy” Finicum was shot by officers of the Oregon State Police and/or FBI as he was trying to drive “across the county border” to seek the protection of the Grant County Sheriff. The Finicum family claims Robert was shot “assassination style” by officers.
Finicum was a spokesperson for Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, who it's claimed “seized an armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in the State of Oregon. The Hammond's, who were recently pardoned by President Trump, were arrested in connection with the incident at Malheur.
This year, the Finicum family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the FBI, BLM, Oregon State Police and others. The case is still pending.

This film tells the stories of how guns, and the billions made off them, affect the lives of everyday Americans.  It features personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims’ families.  The film exposes how the powerful gun companies and the NRA are resisting responsible legislation for the sake of profit – and thereby putting people in danger.
The film looks into gun tragedies that include unintentional shootings, domestic violence, suicides, mass shootings and trafficking—and what we can do to put an end to this profit-driven crisis.

Foothill Conservancy’s Mokelumne River Cleanup and BBQ - Sat Sept 15

Foothill Conservancy invites everyone to join in the 2018 Mokelumne River Cleanup on Saturday, September 15, from 8:30 am until noon, then stay for hotdogs. The event will focus on the Mokelumne’s Electra Run south of Jackson, the most-popular section of the river. The annual, family-friendly event gives people an opportunity to protect the Mokelumne’s water quality and clean up recreational sites while enjoying a beautiful morning along our local river.

“The Mokelumne River cleanup volunteers remove trash and recyclables from the river. Every year they share the satisfaction of making our river pleasurable and safe for all, from the wildlife that live there to the people who enjoy the river for fishing, swimming, picnicking and paddling.” said Carolyn Schooley, cleanup coordinator. “We welcome participation by groups as well as individuals.”


The Mokelumne River Cleanup is part of the annual Great Sierra River Cleanup, sponsored by the state Sierra Nevada Conservancy. Get information about additional Great Sierra River Clean-Up locations, including those coordinated by EBMUD near Pardee and Camanche Reservoirs.

All participants must register in advance by going online to www.foothillconservancy.org or by calling Carolyn at (209) 223-3508. Volunteers under 18 are welcome, but must have adult supervision. Minors must turn in a liability release signed by a parent or legal guardian. Liability releases can be found on the Foothill Conservancy website. 

Volunteers should wear sturdy boots and long pants, and bring work gloves, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellant and a water bottle. Coffee, water and BBQ will be provided.

Foothill Conservancy of Jackson is the leading conservation group involved in the protection and restoration of the upper Mokelumne River. The organization is actively pursuing river conservation, wise water planning and watershed restoration efforts in our area.

For more information, contact Carolyn at 209-223-3508 or Carolyn@foothillconservancy.org.

The Jefferson Messenger - Ed 15, Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 15 . August 11, 2018 . Volume 2
Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, Tuoloumne County

OUR WATER IS UNDER SIEGE!

Whiskey is for drinking, Water is for fighting

Years ago when I was in Spain, we were advised to drink bottled water as opposed to tap water. To my surprise, we found that wine was actually cheaper than water. I mention this because as you read through this issue of the Messenger, we in California, may soon discover that alcoholic beverages might be more available and cheaper than water.
This is why it is so important that we all become informed and involved voters in the 2018 election campaigns. Read the ballot initiatives and find out who is backing them. The same with candidates, their positions and polices on issues such as Yes on Prop 6, repeal of the Gas Tax, Sanctuary State Policy, forest management and water.
Remember, the main origin of water for California lies within the counties of Jefferson. Dams proposed for removal are located in the Jefferson counties of California and Oregon. In the meantime, we still live in California, but the outcome of this years election is not just about California. It is about going on record, taking a stand and fighting for the future of the new State of Jefferson and our Nation overall.
Fish are More Important than People
Earlier this month, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) proposed dedicating much more river water to the environment and less to farms, industry and individuals according to CAL Matters. SWRCB wants to divert water from the Stanislaus, Tuolumne and Merced Rivers to save fish. SWRCB was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown, who has been working on the Bay Delta Plan since 2009, before he took office.
Felicia Marcus, chairwoman for SWRCB, stated: “Simply put, the Sacramento San-Joaquin Delta is no longer a healthy place for many species and the people who rely on them.”
However last week, the U.S. Department of the Interior sent a letter to SWRCB recommending that the Board reconsider the Board Amendments and “postpone the public meeting currently being scheduled for August 21-22, 2018, for additional due diligence and dialogue.” It is believed that Congressman Tom McClintock and Calaveras County Supervisor Dennis Miller are greatly responsible for this recommendation by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Miller had also sent a letter to President Trump.
Should the SWRCB go ahead with their Amendments, the San Francisco and other Bay Area cities that depend on water from Hetch Hetchy Reservoir may find that they need to cut use. Any decrease in Northern California supply will ripple to Southern California. Farmers expect “devastating impacts,” reported the Modesto Bee.
Drain the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir
At the same time the aforementioned was being reviewed, the Restore Hetch Hetchy group filed another lawsuit looking to drain the reservoir, the source of water for about 2.4 million bay area communities, including San Francisco. However, in June, a Tuolumne County Judge threw the case out of court.
Remove Klamath River Dams
Last month, blue prints were being reviewed for the removal of the four Klamath River dams owned by Pacific Corp, which has determined that dam removal is the best economic decision for the corporation and its ratepayers. It is reported that this will be the largest dam removal project in U.S. history and will be required to jump through several regulatory hoops and agencies at both the federal and state level.
Two of the dams are located in southern Oregon and the other two in Siskiyou County. The estimated cost for the project is $450 million to complete with Pacific Corp ratepayers in California and Oregon contributing $200 million. The state of California is contributing the other $250 million through the $7.12 billion Proposition 1 water bond passed by voters in 2014.
But Wait, There's More!
Now there is another water bond on the November ballot. Proposition 3 would issue $8.77 billion in general obligation bonds for water-related infrastructure and environmental projects. The state fiscal analyst said the bond would generate about $8.4 billion in interest over a 40-year period, meaning the bond would cost the state (taxpayers) a total of $17.3 billion.
The 2.7 billion dollars that was earmarked for water storage facilities in the aforementioned 2014 Prop 1 water bond, was finally allocated about a week, ago. Some speculate that this $2.7 billion was finally spent because voters may not take too kindly to the passage of another water bond in November.
Of the Prop 1 bond money, $816 million went to fund the proposed Sites Reservoir in Colusa County, a drop in the bucket, for the estimated $5.2 billion dollar project. Reportedly, Sites is necessary for Jerry Brown's Delta Tunnels. Brown supports Sites Reservoir, which is located in the backyard of his family's ranch.
Last year, some questioned why Prop 1 money was not used to repair the Oroville Dam spillway. State officials told them that Oroville and other existing state water projects were not eligible for Prop 1 Money. Yet, Prop 1 money can be used to remove the four Klamath Dams.
As far as Prop 3, the largest amount of bond revenue - $2.895 billion would go toward conservancies and state parks to restore and protect watershed lands and non-profits and local agencies for river parkways. Only $472 million is allocated for water storage facilities/dam repairs, another drop in the bucket.
The author of Prop 3 is Gerald (Jerry) Meral, Jerry Brown's former Guru with the California Natural Resources Agency. Meral has a long history of being a major mover and shaker in the environmental community, and one of the original organizers of Friends of the River, who led the charge to stop the construction of the New Melones Dam located on the Stanislaus River. Meral and Friends of the River lost their battle on the Stanislaus however, still today, their cry of, “We Will Never Forget the Stansislaus”, echoes through their annual conference. Years later, Friends were successful in preventing the construction of the Auburn Dam.
Twin Tunnels - WaterFix
Nearly 60 years ago, Governor Pat Brown persuaded voters and legislators to approve one of the nations largest public water projects, the State Water Plan, that included a “peripheral canal”, a massive aqueduct to carry water southward to San Joaquin Valley farms and Southern California cities. The peripheral canal never got off the drawing board.
Fast forward to today with a new version of the peripheral canal – twin tunnels to carry water beneath the Delta – emerged. Jerry Brown adopted the tunnels, now dubbed WaterFix. So how does Jerry Brown and the Department of Water Resources intend to pay part of the $17 billion twin-tunnel project?
Remember in 1960, voters approved the State Water Plan. In 1978 Prop 13 was approved, due to the outrage over voters' skyrocketing property taxes, thus taking control away from the Legislature. However, Prop 13 allowed for the tax rate to be higher than 1 percent if needed to pay for debt that voters had approved in prior years. Today, there's still an extra charge for the State Water Project on your property tax bills.
Right now, the teams in the greater bureaucracy are wrestling with how to make the proposed WaterFix project go back in time to 1960. Thinking that since voters already approved the debt for building the twin tunnels, property taxes can be raised if needed to pay the WaterFix debt.
Reportedly, to do this, they're redefining the WaterFix as part of the State Water Project. Under state law, Water Code 147.5, the Department of Water Resources can finalize a long-term water contract 60 days after the Joint Legislature Budget Committee holds an informal hearing. The committee doesn't have to vote. The Legislature doesn't have to vote. All that's needed is the hearing. The hearing has been scheduled for August 14, 2018.
Sixty days later, the new long-term hearing will be finalized extending the term through 2085 and setting the stage for WaterFix debt to be issued. Jerry Brown's Choo Choo Train may not be realized but his WaterFix could well be, shortly before the end of his term.
Rationing, 2022 and Beyond
California's man-made drought will become permanent in 2022, due to Senate Bill 606 and Assembly Bill 1668, signed by Governor Brown in May.
  • Establishing an indoor, per person water use goal of 55 gallons per day until 2025; 52.5 gallons from 2025 to 2030; and, 50 gallons beginning in 2030.
  • Creating water incentives for water suppliers to recycle water.
  • Requiring both urban and agricultural water suppliers to set annual water budgets and prepare for drought.
If you're wondering how the government would know how much water your family is using, the utility providers will be obligated to report you and you could face massive fines. “They shall use satellite imagery, site visits, or other best available technology to develop an accurate estimate of landscaped areas.”
In other words, you may be fined if you take a shower and do a load of laundry the same day. An 8 minute shower uses about 17 gallons of water and a load of laundry about 40 gallons of water. Just when you go to grab a glass of water, you could find the water police knocking on your door.
According to the Pacific Research Institute (PRI), New Permanent and Water Restrictions WON'T increase water supply.
PRI adds, “California's water woes are fully the product of poor public policy. There is still no credible water market in the state. More than 90 percent of water flow is controlled by government. Too many officials seem to be fearful of building new infrastructure for storage and conveyance while continuing to favor environment.”
Time to Fight & Take a Stand
So what do we do? Do we sit on our hands and remain silent and let this all happen? Do we move to another state only to find that when it comes to California's environmental policies, they often spread to other states. Look at what has happened with emission standards. California led the charge!
We who populate the Jefferson Counties must use every opportunity to stand up and speak up about what is about to befall on all in California. This affects your families industries and agriculture. It is predicted that farmers will have to jump through hoops and create water management plans by those in government. What about you who have swimming pools, hot tubs and fountains? Will you be able to plant your vegetable garden? Do you think there might be food shortages, driving food costs even higher?
Our fight begins today, not tomorrow. It is our responsibility to educate and join with others to Repeal the Gas Tax, to Get Out The Vote in November. We must expand our efforts to raise funds for our court case, because nothing will be fixed or changed until “we have equal representation” for all in California.
And, last but not least, talk about the new State of Jefferson with NO State Water Resources Control Board, NO CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act), NO Fire Tax, NO Office of Planning & Research, that dictates land use, and NO CARB. This is called LIBERTY!
 
Mark Your Calendars – As far as the SWRCB Delta Plan, Stop the Water Grab Rally is scheduled for noon on Monday, August 20, 2018, on the north steps of the State Capitol. We ask that Jeffersonian's join legislators, elected county & city representatives and water purveyors who will be attending and speaking at this very important protest rally, organized by Assemblyman Adam Gray. Car pools are being coordinated in many of the Jefferson counties. Wear your gear and bring signs identifying your county and Jefferson.
