“THREE STRIKES, VOTE THEM OUT!”

By Don Nelson
The Nevada County Board of Supervisors conservative majority is consistently making decisions at odds with conservative principles of limited government, individual freedom, and fiscal responsibility. Three recent examples of “big-government” overreach will suffice to illustrate.

Alvin Urke has run his Grass Valley excavation and septic business, Urke Construction, for almost 40 years. Urke, though, says he believes he will go out of business due to retroactive truck and bus regulations the California Air Resources Board, also known as CARB, has implemented to reduce pollution and diesel particulates statewide.

Tues, Aug 12 @ 1:30: BOS: Appeal to be Heard in Cell Tower Case

By Keri Brenner, staff writer for The Union
August 9, 2014

Arguments over the definition of a “visually important ridgeline” in Penn Valley are on tap at a hearing next week before the Nevada County Board of Supervisors.

The hearing, scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the county’s Eric Rood administration building in Nevada City, is on an appeal filed by Juliet Erickson and Peter Lockyer in a four-year-old lawsuit.

The Lockyers are suing over Nevada County’s restrictions on their building permit application for a home and detached office-garage on their property along the ridge northwest of the Lake Wildwood subdivision. The property is adjacent to a Nevada Irrigation District site where the county has allowed Verizon to build a cellphone tower.

Nevada County planners have said the ridgeline is designated “visually important” and therefore Erickson and Lockyer must agree to a management plan with deed restrictions, such as not removing certain trees south of their property. The couple claim the restrictions are to preserve a “background canopy (of trees)” for the cell tower.

Open Letter to Sheriff Gillespie

Bundy Ranch

August 6, 2014 

To Sheriff Doug Gillespie, Clark County Nevada Sheriff's Department,

In a recent press conference, you mentioned 1) the BLM lied to you and 2) Bundy brought armed men to the ranch for protection. 

While I can't speak to the validity of your first claim, we unequivocally take issue with the second.  We never asked for armed men to come to our aid. In fact, everyone who arrived at the Bundy ranch (men, women, armed & unarmed) voluntarily came to support the constitutional rights that you failed to defend. Had you not neglected your duty to defend our rights, the rights of the very people for whom you swore a solemn oath to defend, there never would have been a standoff in the first place.
So while you chastise my family and pontificate about how "Bundy should be held accountable for crossing the line", let it be known that the responsibility for this escalation rests primarily at the doorstep of the Clark County Sheriff's office.  

Please allow me a moment to remind you of some of the history leading up to that day:
