Proposition 1 - The Water Bond

By Jean Gerard

NO on Proposition 1 – The Water Bond

The Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (AB1471), the Water Bond, is on the ballot this November for voter approval. Proponents want us to believe that it will ‘save’ water by building dams and reservoirs. It won’t. It is designed to remove dams, not create them. It supports wetlands restoration, not water storage.

In the beginning, this bill called for the removal of four Klamath River dams. The language has been changed to make its intent less obvious, and the intent stands.
79732. (a) In protecting and restoring California rivers, lakes, streams, and watersheds, the purposes of this chapter are to:

Lift regulations and economy will boom



Other Voices column published in The Union newspaper, October 2, 2014

by Manny Montes


How is it that one can move to Germany, Spain, Italy, or France, and never become a German, Spaniard, Italian, or Frenchmen? Yet anyone immigrating to America, irrespective of origin, can become an American.

The answer is blood and soil in the first instance, and in the second, embracing ideals.

These ideals can be articulated in many ways, but all stem from the creed of our founding, individual liberty. In practice, Thomas Jefferson stated “ … a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government …”

The essence of America is freedom. I state this as preface to this response to Jim Hurley’s piece, “Avoiding Extremes our Best Hope.”

ACTION ALERT: Tuesday, 8/26, BOS: Local Control of Nevada County Forests at Issue

ALERT!  PATRIOTS NEEDED!


On Tuesday, August 26, the Board of Supervisors will approve a resolution asking Governor Brown to get involved in pressuring the federal government to take immediate action to reduce the catastrophic fire danger faced by the counties in the Nevada. CABPRO intends to be there to request that they do NOT approve it.Sierra

We need a good turn-out to let the Board know we are watching this issue carefully.  The reason is the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) will meet in September to roll out their Strategic Plan which may turn over county power and oversight to non-profit organizations who will then deal with the federal government and especially the BLM and National Park Service.  If that happens, we citizens of Nevada County will lose any input we would otherwise have into the management of our lands.  We believe that LOCAL government is the best government because it is the closest to the people.  We must show up in numbers to impress the Board that they best not abdicate their responsibilities to some regional or other organization, nor to the federal government.  Please attend and help us keep the Board of Supervisors honest and representative of We the People when they meet to propose solutions in September.  Thank you in advance for showing up.
