feather riverCharlieSchaupp  3 28 18Yuba City, Ca.

The Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced Lt. Col. Charlie Schaupp (Ret.), Conservative Candidate for the 3rd Congressional District, will be the Special Guest Speaker for their next meeting, Monday, April 2, 2018.

The Schaupp family currently farms over 3000 acres in the 3rd Congressional District and Charlie understands first-hand what it means to produce crops, make a payroll, pay rents, pay property taxes, and run a business to make ends meet. The family has farmed in the Hungry Hollow area of northern Yolo County since his great-grandparents settled there in the 1880’s.

Charlie Schaupp’s agricultural roots run as deep as his passion for freedom. Charlie is a graduate of Yuba College where he received an associate degree in agricultural business. He received his bachelor’s degree in agriculture from California State University, Chico with an emphasis in soils, irrigation and drainage. A water science specialist, Charlie also engaged in additional graduate studies in hydrology and water resource development.

Lieutenant Colonel Schaupp, United States Marines, is a proven patriot. He is a retired Marine officer and his 28-year service with Marine reserves was both extensive and honorable. During a 5-year mobilization in the Global War on Terrorism, Charlie served as Anti-Terrorism Officer for the 3rd Marine Division, Security Officer for First Marine Expeditionary Force in battle of Fallujah (duties as a special staff officer to General Conway assigned to safeguard access to classified information and operations), and Deputy Camp Commander and Anti-Terrorism officer for Camp Courtney, Okinawa-Japan, protecting and safeguarding over 5000 Marines and families who were deployed overseas.

Charlie was also mobilized in 1991 for Operation Desert Storm and served as the Commanding Officer of Company B, 4th LSB ‘The Stockton Marines’ in combat operations supporting the 2nd Marine Division’s attack and advance into Kuwait City. He, again, was called up in the service of freedom in 1997 and was mobilized to support peace enforcement operations in the Bosnia crisis.

Charlie is earnestly committed to helping our youth. He served as a Boy Scout leader for over 20 years and while deployed overseas to Okinawa, Japan, he carried out the duties as the Assistant District Commissioner and Scout Round-table Commissioner in the Far East Council to ensure the success of scouting programs for our military families who were stationed in foreign counties. For his service to scouting, Charlie is a recipient of the Silver Bear District Leadership Award from the Boy Scouts.

Charlie is strongly committed to lowering taxes. As a former director of the Yolo County Taxpayers Association, he worked to ensure elected officials were held accountable when spending tax money thereby ensuring governmental fiscal responsibility. He is also a proud veteran and serves in several veteran organizations. He is currently the Commander of Western Yolo Post 7143, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).

Don’t forget – Our regular feature In The News with Paul Preston, Agenda 21 Radio, will follow our Special Guest Speaker. Paul will be discussing events of the day.

Everyone is welcome. There is no membership and no cost to attend.

Marysville, Ca.

Yuba County Water Agency and Cordua Irrigation District are beginning a new chapter in the story of their relationship, having moved to one of collaboration and partnership, with the finalization of a recent settlement agreement.

Both entities today exchanged settlement checks, resolving several long-standing disagreements, including two lawsuits.

“Just as important as resolving old disputes, this settlement agreement provides a foundation for future cooperation and collaboration between YCWA and Cordua,” said YCWA Chairman Brent Hastey.

The procedures specified in the settlement agreement will expedite YCWA’s approval of Cordua’s 2018 water transfer program, resulting in significant Cordua efficiencies and cost savings, while maintaining measures to avoid adverse impacts to other water users.

“Yuba County is fortunate to have a nearly 100-year-old irrigation district in Cordua and an entity like YCWA managing the water and power resources for its citizens,” said Charley Mathews Jr., Cordua Irrigation District board member. “When water is involved, there are always situations where disagreements arise, but the professional courtesy exhibited by both sides moved what was a disagreement into a better understanding of the value of a long-term relationship going forward. The winners in the end are the citizens of Yuba County.”

The lawsuits and disputes between YCWA and Cordua that this agreement resolves include:

1. A lawsuit against YCWA seeking approximately $4.5 million in damages for a dispute dating back to 2015, in which YCWA did not approve a Cordua proposed groundwater substitution-based water transfer and sale.

2. A lawsuit against Cordua claiming California Environmental Quality Act and Brown Act violations relating to Cordua’s 2016 approval of a CEQA addendum for its groundwater substitution transfers to State Water Project contractors for 2016 through 2024.

3. A YCWA and Cordua dispute over the price owed by Cordua to YCWA for Yuba River Development Project water delivered in 2016.

Under the agreement, the lawsuits are dismissed and YCWA paid Cordua $675,000 to resolve the 2015 transfer request lawsuit, and Cordua paid YCWA $60,000 to resolve the 2016 project base supply billing dispute.

One Day Seminar on the Constitutional Sheriff

The Sutter Buttes Tea Party Patriots has organized a community event titled “The Sheriff and The Citizen”. This one day seminar being presented in part by Sheriff Richard Mack, published author and founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, will focus on the constitutional role of the County Sheriff and will serve to educate sheriff candidates, deputies and citizen supporters of the Sheriff with regard to the significance of the constitutional role of the only elected law enforcement officer in the country.

The course curriculum, published by The Institute on the Constitution, is appropriate for Sheriff candidates, DA candidates, deputies and citizens to understand The American View of Law and Government and its relationship to the U.S. and State Constitutions in order that they are ready, willing and able to support the constitutional role of the Sheriff.

Key elements covered in the course include the following:

Recognize the sheriff’s oath of office and its proper application. Understand and articulate The American View of Law and Government. Identify the Founders formula for preventing tyranny. Learn the doctrines of nullification and interposition and their relationship to the office of sheriff. Discover the authority of the elected sheriff. Appreciate the importance of elected officials upholding their oath of office.

This one day seminar is being held on March 25th at The Church of Glad Tidings, beginning at 9:00 AM. To register, contact Tammie Rikard at (530) 701-2845 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Sierra Sun Times

Last week, Senate Democrats pushed their proposal for a $40 billion investment of federal funds in rural broadband deployment projects. Democrats call for a “Roosevelt Plan” that will bring internet to every American in the United States, including rural areas that are less profitable for the private sector.

The $40 billion investment will be allocated using the following principles:

1. Provide Direct Federal Support for a Universal Internet Grant Program to Close the ‘Last Mile’ Gap. 1. Focus on those areas that need adequate, affordable high-speed internet the most.

2. Upgrade existing infrastructure where reasonable.

3. Leverage competition to make sure federal resources are used most efficiently.

4. Use Tax-Payer Resources Responsibly.

5. Tackle the Tribal Broadband Gap.

2. Create Accurate Maps of Areas that Lack Adequate Internet Access.

3. Deliver Internet Speeds Needed to Compete in the 21st Century.

4. Upgrade the Nation’s Critical Safety Infrastructure.

The Democrats’ proposal matches Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reports that estimate it will cost $40 billion to bring broadband to 98 percent of the country. This approach would not only invest directly in broadband deployment projects, but will include investments in broadband mapping data to help providers pinpoint the most underserved areas.

Randy Fletcher Yuba County Supervisor District 5  3 14 18Yuba County’s 5th District Supervisor, farmer and local small business owner, Randy Fletcher, will run for re-election to the Yuba County Board of Supervisors.

“Since I took office, our District has been hit hard, experiencing the worst droughts and wildfires in recorded history,” said Fletcher. “I strive every day to use my time to the fullest to help our residents recover and thrive.”

Fletcher’s first term has been focused on tackling the top issues identified during his campaign and building relationships throughout Yuba County and California. He completed the ban on outdoor marijuana grows, worked to reduce flooding problems in District 10, secured a new ambulance location to better serve the foothills, started construction on a cell tower in Brownsville, secured an unprecedented amount of funding for road repair projects, eliminated many small permit fees and started a same-day permitting process for a dozen common projects.

Fletcher served as Chairman of the Board in 2017. He represents the County on 14 committees and boards, including the Yuba County Disaster Council and the Yuba County Water Agency.

Senator Jim Nielsen, Assemblyman James Gallagher, and numerous regional County Supervisors have endorsed Fletcher’s re-election campaign.

Fletcher is President of Fletcher & Associates Insurance in Downtown Marysville, and the owner of the historic Chestnut Grove in Brownsville. He was the original founder of Tuff Stuff Jerky.

Fletcher served over 20 years in local law enforcement and was a nominee for Officer of the Year.

Randy and Kathy have lived in Browns Valley for 35 years. They have two children and five grandchildren.

“My experience as a police officer, farmer and small business owner prepared me to lead our District,” said Fletcher. “I ask for your vote again.”

Andy Vasquez  3 14 18Andy Vasquez, the incumbent Supervisor for Yuba County’s 1st District has filed for reelection. In 2009, Vasquez was appointed to the position by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger after Supervisor Dan Logue was elected to the California State Assembly.

Vasquez is a Vietnam Veteran, former Reserve Yuba County Sheriff Deputy, and a small business owner for over 40 years.

“I took office in 2009, right as the recession hit,” said Vasquez, “but we’ve worked hard, trimmed all departments, and maintained a balanced budget every single year since.”

During Vasquez’ term in office Yuba County residents are now protected by one of the best levee systems in the entire country, a new Sheriff’s Department was built, a record number of road repairs have been completed and major improvements have begun to North Beale Road. To encourage jobs, Vasquez worked to streamline the building permit process and eliminate many fees altogether.

Vasquez organized four Linda community clean-up days, removing over 350 tons of garbage and returning hundreds of shopping carts to local stores.

“My top priority is public safety,” said Vasquez. “We are in crisis, the state is releasing thousands of criminals back onto our streets and homeless populations are out of control. We need to make sure we have enough officers to protect lives and property.”

Andy and his wife Jeannie have five children and five grandchildren and enjoy volunteering for local groups and attending local charitable events. To learn more, visit www.AndyVasquez.com.

Guest Speaker Candidate for Governor Travis Allen

Travis Allen is a Conservative Republican legislator for the California State Assembly from Huntington Beach, California. He was first elected to the California State Assembly in November 2012 to represent the California's 72nd State Assembly district, which includes the cities of Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Westminster, most of Garden Grove, portions of Huntington Beach portions of Santa Ana and the unincorporated communities of Midway and Rossmoor.

In June 2017, Allen announced his candidacy for Governor of California in the 2018 election. He is running on a platform of spurring job creation and business growth by cutting California's highest-in-the-nation taxes; restoring tough-on-crime policies and rolling back policies that have released thousands of criminals back into communities; using existing, record tax revenues to fix the state's deteriorating freeways and roads and reduce traffic; increasing school choice and creating more charter schools; preventing future water shortages by increasing water storage capacity and completing the landmark California Water Project.

Allen is a lead sponsor of a 2018 ballot initiative to repeal Senate Bill 1, Governor Jerry Brown-backed legislation enacted by the Democratic-controlled legislature which increased the state gas tax by 12-cents to 30-cents a gallon. SB 1 also increased the diesel fuel excise tax by 16-cents and the diesel fuel sales tax from 5.75% to 9.75%. SB 1 also significantly increases the vehicle license fee. Unless repealed, SB 1 which went into effect November 1, 2017, will add $5.2 billion to Californians' tax burden every year.

Allen's legislative voting record has been characterized by his strong support for limited government, free enterprise, spending restraint, regulatory reform, and lower taxes. He has earned 100% ratings from the California Taxpayers Association, the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the California Manufacturers Association. Assemblyman Allen's support for lower taxes and opposition to tax increases has earned him consistent A+ ratings from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. The Firearms Policy Coalition has given Allen an A+ rating in recognition of his strong support for Second Amendment rights.

Sacramento, Ca.

On February 21, 2018 Republican members of the California Legislature delivered a wagon-load of petitions to the California Water Commission calling for the immediate approval of funding for Sites and Temperance Flat reservoirs. The more than 4,000 petitions were signed by Californians from all corners of the state in response to recent reports that the commission is blocking the construction of badly needed surface water storage, even as another drought is looming.

“Four years ago, California voters overwhelmingly approved a $7 billion water bond on the promise of new surface storage projects,” said Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle (Bieber). “Our government has made a habit of selling the voters a false bill of goods. It is long past time that our government starts keeping its promises.”

In 2014, Californians approved Proposition 1, a water bond that included $2.7 billion for investments in new reservoirs. The proposition tasked the California Water Commission with allocating the storage funding. Recently, the commission issued a report that could jeopardize the funding for important storage projects like Sites Reservoir and Temperance Flat.

“The lack of urgency from bureaucrats at the water commission is putting Californians’ livelihoods in danger,” said Assemblyman Frank Bigelow (R-O’Neals) in a recent Sacramento Bee op-ed. “If we are hit with another drought, the commission will be responsible.”

If built, Temperance Flat Reservoir could hold 423 billion gallons of water northeast of Fresno. Sites Reservoir could hold 586 billion gallons in Colusa County.

feather river teaMark Meuser  2 28 18Mark Meuser Two Speakers, Secretary of State Candidate Mark Meuser and New California State Vice-Chairman Paul Preston

Yuba City, Ca.

The Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced they will have two great Guest Speakers at their Monday, March 5, 2018 meeting. Scheduled will be conservative Republican Secretary of State candidate Mark Meuser, followed by the New California State Co-Founder and Vice-Chairman Paul Preston.

Mark Meuser, a Walnut Creek constitutional and election law attorney with Harmeet Dhillon’s Law Group, is running for Secretary of State. The office, currently held by Alex Padilla, boasts a dismal national ranking of 43rd in voter turnout and is ranked almost dead last by The Pew Charitable Trust’s Election Performance Index.

Mark will share his thoughts on voter integrity and offer solutions. He will discuss the concept of 1-vote for 1-person to protect fairness in elections – what a concept!

California has a Democrat Secretary of State who has decided not to participate in the Federal Election Integrity Commission study of elections. Padilla refuses to check the DMV drivers licenses list, 800,000 illegal aliens, against the voters list to determine how many illegal aliens are registered to vote. This is a Democrat that refuses to provide honest elections for Californians.

Why is no one being charged with fraud or arrested if Secretary of State is not being held accountable for not enforcing laws. The fact that there are 11 counties in California with over 100% voter registration is a major problem. The fact that Los Angeles County has over 144% voter registration should be a concern to all citizens. Secretary of State is in position to protect the citizens’ rights to make their voice heard. Mark Meuser wants to be the sheriff of California Elections.

Paul Preston will give a complete overview of the New California State movement. How the current New California State team was formed and what’s in the future. Why a Declaration of Independence, 40 grievances, and eventually a New State of California Constitution. Where are we in the total process? He will outline the overall strategy and timeline to become the 51st state.

There is no membership requirement to attend and everyone is welcome. Doors open at 6:00pm; meeting begins promptly at 6:30 pm. Come early to register, socialize with like-minded patriots, and get a good seat.

The meeting will be Monday, March 5, 2018, at the Crossroads Community Church, 445 B Street, Yuba City, CA 95991.

John Cox is the only candidate running for California Governor endorsed by the California Pro Life Council. He is both a fiscal and social conservative, John supports 2nd Amendment rights and strongly opposes boondoggles like the High Speed Rail “Train to Nowhere.”

Once the land of promise and opportunity, California today is on the brink of financial insolvency, thanks to the failed policies of the Liberal Democrats and the timidity of “me-too” Republicans.

Brent Hastey, YCWA Board Chairman

Yuba County Water Agency supports initiatives and efforts that help provide flood risk reduction, groundwater management, watershed protection and habitat restoration for the benefit of the people who live and work in our community.

This year, we are placing our support behind two proposed bond measures that will be on statewide ballots, known collectively as the 2018 Water and Park Bonds.

If approved by California voters, these initiatives would provide billions of dollars for statewide water management projects to enhance water supplies for societal and environmental uses, including projects valuable to Yuba County residents.

Senate Bill No. 5, the “California Drought, Water, Parks, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018”, is a $4 billion bond that would provide millions of dollars to implement voluntary agreements that benefit water quality, supply and watershed protection and restoration, for Central Valley flood protection and levee improvements, and for drought and groundwater investments to achieve regional sustainability.

The National Heritage Institute’s proposed measure, the “State Water Supply Infrastructure, Water Conveyance, Ecosystem and Watershed Protection and Restoration, and Drinking Water Protection Act of 2018, is an $8.9 billion bond that would provide funding for flood management improvements to existing dams, including possibly New Bullards Bar Dam, and for salmon restoration or reintroduction projects in the Sacramento Valley.

Because of the increasingly extreme weather patterns we are experiencing, it is becoming more important for us to make significant investments in improving infrastructure to be better prepared for potential future droughts and floods.

In my capacity as YCWA Board Chairman and Association of California Water Agencies President, I encourage the people of Yuba County to review the 2018 Water and Park Bonds.

Actively investing in flood risk reduction projects in our community is the first step in rebuilding and reinvigorating our economy. We continue working toward that goal every day, but we can use all the help we can get.
