The holidays give us time to reconnect - with family from afar, with friends we haven’t seen for a while, and with ourselves. We hope you and your loved ones take time to enjoy the many things that make this place so special – walks in forests and along rivers, drives through pastoral ranch and farm lands, taking a break to enjoy local beer or wine among friendly folks.

And don't forget about the upcoming John McCutcheon Concert on
January 10th in Mokelumne Hill. Tickets to this event would make
great Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers!

Award-winning musician-storyteller John McCutcheon returns to Mokelumne Hill - Thurs Jan 10

On Thursday, January 10, 2019, beloved musician-storyteller John McCutcheon will perform in Mokelumne Hill at the historic Mokelumne Hill Town Hall, starting at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 the day of the show, $15 for children 12 and under. Tickets are on sale now at and at the Foothill Conservancy’s Jackson office at 35 Court Street, Ste 1. The show is a benefit for the Foothill Conservancy.
Whether in print, on record, or on stage, people communicate with John McCutcheon’s versatility, charm, wit, and pure talent. “We introduced John to this area in 1992 and have presented him several times since,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director Amanda Nelson. “In every show, he has delighted, inspired, amused, and transported his audience. We are happy to have him back after so many years.” McCutcheon’s last Conservancy benefit was in 2001 and his last Mokelumne Hill performance was in 2004.
A native of Wisconsin who resides in Georgia, McCutcheon spent years immersing himself in the traditional music of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. He is one of the country’s most respected and loved folksingers. As an instrumentalist, he is a master of a dozen different traditional instruments, most notably the rare and beautiful hammer dulcimer. His songwriting has been hailed by critics and singers around the globe. His 30 recordings have garnered every imaginable honor including seven Grammy nominations and Parents’ magazine awards. And his commitment to grassroots organizing has put him on the front lines of many important issues, from supporting Wisconsin's teachers to opposing environmentally destructive Alaskan mining proposals.
McCutcheon is best known for his captivating live performances. As the late Pete Seeger said, “John McCutcheon is not only one of the best musicians in the USA, but also a great singer, songwriter, and song leader.” Johnny Cash called him, “The most impressive instrumentalist I’ve ever heard.” Describing his stories, the Washington Post said, “He has an uncanny ability to breathe new life into the familiar. His storytelling has the richness of fine literature.”
People of every generation and background feel at home when John McCutcheon takes the stage, with what critics describe as“little feats of magic,”“breathtaking in their ease and grace...,” and “like a conversation with an illuminating old friend.” His performances feature original and traditional songs with the profound mark of place, family, and strength, along with stories told in a style that's been compared to Will Rogers and Garrison Keillor. It’s an evening not to be missed!
The event will include light refreshments and a cash beer and wine bar.

On December 18, 2018, at 9:00 AM, Board Of Supervisor Meeting, Chamber Hall at County Building (810 Court Street), they are having a code enforcement town hall meeting.

Come out and hear how the current system works and why it takes too long and cost too much money and what tools Code Enforcement (County) could have to make it more efficient and accountable. It will also touch on why the County should be recovering administration costs, etc (does not currently) since it is the general fund money and should go back in for public needs not just for the individual who doesn't want to obey the codes. The presentation will last around an half hour and will be open to the public afterward, We need to come forward and express our frustrations and to support code enforcement to have more tools or come out and let them know of an experience you had with the slow process. If they don't hear the public demand it, they will not change it! Come on out. It's a presentation you don't want to miss! TBD where it will be in the agenda- will update with info asap!

The Jefferson Messenger - Edition 23, Vol 2

The Jefferson Messenger 

Edition 23. December 8 , 2018 . Volume 2
Citizens for Fair Representation
Press Release
For Immediate Release
December 5, 2018
Citizens Decry Institutional Tyranny
“Institutional tyranny was declared lawful last week,” stated Mark Baird, spokesperson for Citizens for Fair Representation (CFR), referring to Judge Kimberly Mueller's order dismissing Citizens for Fair Representation v Secretary of State Alex Padilla for lack of standing. The plaintiffs filed suit against Padilla in May of 2017, for lack of representation and dilution of vote.
Baird went on to say, “Mueller's orders say that since all Californians are equally disadvantaged with representative ratios of one million people per State Senator and 500,000 people per each Assembly member, that there is nothing the court will do.” Baird added, “California has the worst representative ratio in the nation. Not only is California's ratio worse than any state in the nation, but far worse than most world governments.”
In 1879, the California State Legislature was capped at 40 in the Senate and 80 in the Assembly, with a population of approximately 440,000. Now, almost 150 years later with population numbers almost 40 million, the number of representatives remains the same. Baird estimates that California citizens vote has been diluted 400%.
CFR believes that Judge Mueller is commanded by Shapiro v McManus (U.S. Supreme Court) and U.S. Code Title 24, Section 2284 and must request a three judge court be appointed in any dilution of vote
case, with the reasoning that a single judge can never be trusted with the sanctity of the people's vote.
According to CFR early on in the case Judge Mueller did in fact uphold the law ordering a three judge court only to make an unprecedented decision one week later to reverse her own ruling, admitting what CFR believes to be illicit conversations with another court.
Baird said, “While Judge Mueller's actions were not unexpected, they are disappointing. CFR believes this action to be unconstitutional.” Baird further stated, “It leaves us wondering whether all it takes for oligarchy and dictatorship to flourish is a judge who will support tyranny as long as all are equally harmed by it!”
After consulting with their attorneys of record, Scott Stafne and Gary Zerman, along with their legal consultants, Alex Kozinski, former Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and Professor Steward Jay, University of Washington State School of Law, Citizens for Fair Representation decided they will enter into the appeals process.
CFR is dedicated to the proposition of representation in districts small enough that legislators will be forced to consider those who elect them, no matter their political affiliation. “And to that end, CFR will continue to fight for equal/fair representation and liberty for all California's citizens.” said Baird.
Terry Gherardi
Ladies and Gentleman of Jefferson,
As some of you may have already heard, Judge Muller has dismissed our complaint again. Although this is disappointing, it is not unexpected. This Judge has already made the unprecedented action of calling for a three judge court as commanded by the law, only to “change her mind” one week later. Further misconduct in her dismissal should not be a surprise to any of us.
I have spoken individually with each of our attorneys. WE MUST FIGHT!
No one but the citizens of Jefferson are actively doing anything to stop the institutional dictatorship in California. This court has gone on record as saying that tyranny and dictatorship are ok as long as everybody is equally harmed by lack of representation.
If we fail to fight, no one will do this for us. If we fail to gain Liberty through adequate representation, no one will just up and give it to us. There is no where to run and no where to hide from the storm that is approaching our freedom. WE MUST FIGHT!
We will appeal! Yes this Democrat Judge has made it more difficult. No one ever said this would be easy or a sure thing. We must exhaust all legal, moral and ethical avenues to regain our Liberty through adequate representation in districts small enough to ensure accountability to the people! We will file an appeal in appellate court. The judge made some rather serious procedural errors in her ruling and in her conduct. With the addition of Trump appointments to the Ninth Circuit, our odds increase.
Have faith that our true judge, the beneficent creator of the world, will smile upon the rectitude of our intentions, as we publicly pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor to secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and to our posterity. Please remember that Liberty has a price. It has always had a price. If our generation fails to pay, the next will pay their share and ours until
finally the burden cannot be shouldered by ordinary means.

If you have doubts, consider the following. Ballot harvesting is a felony in most states. Ballot harvesting was the method used by The Democrat party to win House seats in California’s conservative districts, and they consider it a great idea. Gavin Newsom has publicly stated his disdain for Second Amendment Liberty, and in fact has publicly stated his disdain for everything most of you stand for.
The Mono Party has a super majority in both houses of government as well as a socialist in the Governors mansion. Twenty-three counties went Democrat in the Governors race and 31 counties voted conservative and yet no Conservative has held a state wide office in over a decade. Fewer than half of registered voters bother to vote. Why?
Because it is widely perceived that your vote counts for nothing! Worse, it is true! Our votes have been diluted 400% since our state’s founding. We suffer under the worst representative ratio in the nation, 350 percent worse than state number 49, at one million people per senator and one half million per assemblyman. Most national governments have better representation than we do in a single state. One quarter of the people tell three quarters how things are going to be and they say if you don’t like it, get out! Free speech is now called hate speech, just as George Orwell predicted in his book “1984”. Plastic straws and cow farts are banned while illegal alien criminals murder our fellow citizens and suck our treasury dry. All with the official blessing of the rats, liars and crooks in Sacramento.....We must fight!!!
Ladies and Gentlemen of the twenty three counties of Jefferson, we are it! No one is rushing to save us from the apathy to Liberty in this state. If we want this we will have to fight for it! The appeal has already begun. Pray for strength. Have faith. Prepare for the fight that will surely follow.
Liberty or Death,
Mark Baird
