CCofCC Seeks “protection of citizen’s health, safety, welfare, and prosperity”

Press Release from the Concerned Citizens of Central California:

To the citizens of Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties:

Concerned Citizens of Central California hereby notify you that they have formally demanded the County Board of Supervisors and Sheriffs, as responsible representatives of our communities bring together all agencies to devise an emergency plan of action.

The purpose is to secure local control for the protection of citizen’s health, safety, welfare, and prosperity. Some resolutions have been passed at the county level, but no actions have taken place to regain local control of our Sierra National Forest, leading to massive water loss, and catastrophic fires.

Even with a forecast of a strong El Nino this year with above average rainfall, there will be further environmental complications. Increased rainfall from El Nino will bring mudslides and silt into the watershed, the streams, and the rivers killing the fish, making the water unpotable, and useless for our valley agricultural industry.

Without major changed in forest management, the fire danger will increase next year, and the drought will continue.

The whole community is coming together as the current conditions are so destructive that it is burning down the forest, killing wildlife, including the various endangered species. The only way to correct this mismanagement is to work with the US Forest Service using local county controls. The effects of this drought and high fire danger causing natural and socioeconomic disaster will be with us for generations.

Below is a sample letter, which has been mailed to the County Supervisors and Sheriffs in all three counties:

The residents of Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties hereby inform you that degraded conditions in the County forests are endangering the health, safety, welfare and prosperity of all County citizens, businesses, public and private lands.

 Concerned Citizens of Central California request the immediate focused attention and decisive action of all three counties’ Boards of Supervisors as we address the complex issues that this catastrophe presents. We have lost the luxury of time for study and planning. Prompt action is crucial to protect our residents, animals, infrastructure, homes, businesses, natural resources, and recreational industry. Our Sheriff’s departments are over tasked, and underfunded to meet the demands that a mismanaged forest has created.

In 2013, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors passed and adopted the RESOLUTION REQUESTING a STATE OF EMERGENCY IN FRESNO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA DUE TO DEGRADED FOREST CONDITIONS AND IMMINENT THREAT FROM CATASTROPHIC FIRES AND EXTREME DROUGHT. This resolution states that, “It is the responsibility and within the scope of authority of the Board of Supervisors of Fresno County to exercise powers necessary and proper to protect public safety, health, and the economic prosperity of the inhabitants of the County pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of laws of this State;” The Board of Supervisors follows with a request that a state of emergency be declared in and around the County’s forest communities.

On October 21, 2014, the Madera County Board of Supervisors passed and adopted the RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF SUSTAINABLE FOREST POLICIES. “It is the responsibility and within the scope of authority of the Board of Supervisors of Madera County (“County”) to exercise powers necessary and proper to protect public safety, health, and the economic prosperity of the inhabitants of the County pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of laws of this State;” The Board of Supervisors follows with a request that a state of emergency be declared in and around the County’s forest communities.

In April, 2015, the Concerned Citizens of Central California spoke before the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors about the urgent need to pass an EMERGENCY RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF SUSTAINABLE FOREST POLICIES. “It is the responsibility and within the scope of authority of the Board of Supervisors of Mariposa County to exercise powers necessary and proper to protect public safety, health and economic prosperity of the inhabitants of the County pursuant to the provisions of the constitution of laws of this State.”  The Concerned Citizens of Central California request that the Board of Supervisors declare a State of Emergency in and around the County’s forest communities.

The residents of Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa Counties, whose health, safety and welfare you have sworn to protect, do now call upon you, the members of all three County Board of Supervisors, to act promptly and decisively to protect your counties against further destruction. As our Federal and State agencies have failed us, in preventing this emergency, local action becomes the only logical solution.

 We are asking for the County Supervisors to schedule a meeting, as promptly as can be organized, including all three Boards of Supervisors, the Fresno, Madera, and Mariposa County Sheriffs, all appropriate County agencies, the United States Forest Service, Cal Fire, P.G. & E., So. Cal Edison Co. and the residents and businesses, to discuss the implementation of measures, to protect our public and private lands and communities from further damage. Mountain residents will be happy to assist in organizing this event.

 In conclusion, we will work with the Supervisors and Sheriffs in this process unless they are unwilling to work to take action to protect the citizen’s health, safety, welfare, and prosperity. Meaningless political resolutions, statements, and posturing without action is no longer tolerable. Further actions are planned to take place to ensure that the people representing our communities are there to serve the best interests of the people.

 Thank you,

 Concerned Citizens of Central California

FASCISM RULES: Plow Field, Go To Jail? Feds Threaten John Duarte. He Slugs Back

For Duarte, the unthinkable began in early 2013 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (CoE) presented him with a “Cease and Desist” Order (CDO) against him and and Duarte Nursery alleging that the act of plowing his field was an illegal “discharge of dredged or fill material.” (Premium Wine Executive News subscribers can obtain the full Cease and Desist Order letter at this link.)Further, the CoE order claimed that Duarte’s illegal discharge was under their jurisdiction because his wheat field was part of the “waters of the United States.”

California Bans Bobcat Trapping, Despite Evidence

Press Release from the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance:

With a contentious 3-2 vote, the California Fish and Game Commission approved a statewide ban on trapping of bobcats.

The Sportsmen’s Alliance and its Al Taucher Conservation Coalition partners favored following the science amassed by the state and federal governments.

“Today’s narrow decision by the commission to ban bobcat trapping in California flies in the face of the science made available by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,” said Josh Brones, government affairs coordinator of western operations for the Sportsmen’s Alliance. “For the commission to willfully ignore the departments’ recommendations to not implement the ban, indicates an utter lack of regard for the role and value of science and wildlife professionals in resource policy-making decisions.”

In his presentation, Craig Martz, senior environmental scientist for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, provided ample evidence that the bobcat population in California was stable and possibly growing, and as high as 140,000 animals. When the maximum population was estimated to be no more than 72,000 bobcats nearly 30 years ago, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife established a threshold of harvest by hunters and trappers to be 14,400 bobcats. Given the current average annual take of approximately 1,800 bobcats, the department’s staff appropriately summarized their presentation by stating that the trapping of bobcats would have absolutely no impact on the population.

In a disappointing turn of events, newly appointed commissioners Sklar and Williams voted against sportsmen and were the deciding factors in the needless statewide ban, with commission president Jack Baylis joining them. Commissioners Kellogg and Hostler-Carmesin voted against the ban.

“We are very disappointed by the willingness of the new commissioners to cave to the irrational and emotional arguments of the animal-rights community by taking such a radical stance on a very complex topic that has been debated for more than year – especially when their knowledge and experience with the subject matter has been confined to this single meeting,” said Brones.

“When they were appointed by Gov. Brown, we had hoped Williams and Sklar would recognize the environmental and economic importance sportsmen serve in wildlife management. At the very least, we hoped they would take a prudent and thoughtful look at the evidence and recommendation of state and federal scientists,” continued Brones. “Apparently, that was too much to hope for in this hotly debated contest. This glaring disregard for credible science will most assuredly be exploited as we pursue our options to reverse this decision.”

It’s The Damned Pot Plants Causing the Drought! Who’d a Thunk it?

*Editor’s Note* The biggest reason I decided to post a teaser to this article is because it epitomizes the work of the Media. It robotically repeats all the things that it has been programmed to repeat, i.e. “terrible drought,” “Like..everything else,” “liberals are blaming,” “conservatives…blame,” “liberal environmentalists,” “political point scoring,” “natural processes,” “humans…have little to do with.”

“California’s terrible drought has become — like just about everything else in the United States — a political issue. Many liberals have taken to blaming anthropogenic climate change for the drought, while some conservatives have placed the blame at the feet of “liberal environmentalists.” The political point-scoring is tiring and just plain silly, given that the drought is almost certainly a result of natural processes — processes that we humans, conservatives and liberals alike, have precious little to do with. Another problem is that our partisan pugilists are conflating two separate issues: the drought, which is the lack of rainfall that California has suffered over the past four years, and the water shortages, which may indeed have some man-made causes.

To that end, a San Francisco-based author with a PhD in Nutritional Ethnomedicine floated an interesting theory regarding those water shortages earlier this week. Speaking on the radio, he suggested that California’s huge crop of marijuana plants is “depleting the water table,” and is partially responsible for the massive shortfalls in water that the state is now facing.”<<<Read More>>>
