alton wright  2 7 18Yuba County Supervisor District 5

Alton Wright wants to become the next Yuba County Supervisor for the people living in District 5.

“Having lived in the foothills for nearly twenty years, and with local family roots dating back to the late 1960’s, I love the people, the beauty and the opportunity of our incredible community. I also see the long-term challenges and hear the frustrations of people who feel ignored or misunderstood by their elected leaders. This has to change. This is why I want to be the supervisor for you, the people.”

With his educational and professional background, Alton stands apart from others relying on past personal qualifications because he knows there’s a critical need to address real, everyday issues RIGHT NOW– Make the community more fire-safe, fix roads, support the needs of youth, families and seniors and fairly resolve the outdoor Cannabis challenge, as well as many others. District 5 can’t wait for the current, stagnant leadership to follow through on false promises or to see others who might be a cookie-cutter repeat of the past.

Like many of us, Alton is just a regular person: taking a load of firewood to a needy family, giving seniors vegetables grown on his sustainable farm or mentoring a young adult away from harmful drugs. He’s also the person to lead the effort to stop unfair water rate increases and to support local organizations bettering the community. This must-do attitude is the kind of supervisor he will be, whether it’s to advocate for more streamlined permitting processes, to ensure that appropriate funding is in place to support common sense law enforcement or to simply provide a fresh perspective on unsolved issues.

“I don’t profess to have all the answers or solutions, but I know they are out there, within the hearts and minds of our community and we can work together to find them. I know some decisions won’t please everyone, but I will always seek input from everybody affected. I will work tirelessly for the people, my neighbors, to make District 5 a better place than it is today. Let’s make Yuba County shine above all others!”

District 5 covers a vast, diverse geographic area including Strawberry Valley, Camptonville, Smartsville, Rackerby, Challenge, District 10, Hallwood, Northeastern Marysville, Loma Rica, Browns Valley, Dobbins, Oregon House, Brownsville and the southern edges of Clipper Mills and Forbestown, the neighborhood Alton lives in.

The New California State movement announced Grievance 2 against the state of California was declared at 11:00 a.m. January 30, 2018, in Martinez, Contra Costa County; San Joaquin County; Riverside, Riverside County; and Yuba City, Sutter County.

New California is a new state in development by egregiously aggrieved Californians exercising their Constitutional Right to form a new state separate from the tyranny and lawlessness of the state of California.

Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it and institute new Government. When a long train of abuses and acts to seize and hold the people’s power without legal authority and pursuing invariably the same Object that clearly demonstrates a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

The present governor and government of California have a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of a Tyranny over the state of California.

Citizens of New California are joining together to remedy the abuse of power by the government of California and exercising their right to form a new state as authorized and set forth in Article IV, Section 3, of the United States Constitution.

Therefore the counties of New California bring forward 40 grievances against the government of California, being announced in public on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. each week for 40 weeks. The next 38 weekly grievances for the northern counties will be read at the new Sutter County Courthouse, 1175 Civic Center Blvd., Yuba City, Tuesdays, 11:00 am-11:30 am. Concerned citizens are welcome to attend.

Declaration of Grievance 2

The United States Constitution, Article IV Section 4, states, in part:

The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

Grievance 2 consists of 3 parts:

Failure of the government of California to provide a republican form of government.

Failure of the government of California to protect each Citizen against invasion.

Failure of government of California to protect Citizens against domestic violence.

feather river tea Roger Photo 001 edited 2  1 31 18Yuba City, Ca.

The new Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced Roger Morgan, Chairman/Founder of the Take Back America Campaign, will be the Special Guest Speaker for their next meeting, Monday, February 5, 2018.

Over the past 9 years, under the guise of medicine, California has allowed over 50,000 illegal marijuana cultivation sites on public and private land. The environmental impact and ecological damage has been horrific. Poisons, pesticides and fertilizers used to grow pot are killing wildlife, poisoning fish and contaminating the earth and our watersheds that serve millions of people. The abdication of state or federal enforcement has placed the entire burden of public safety and environmental protection on local governments and law enforcement, without the resources. They are overwhelmed. Two counties so far have declared states of emergency, with more to follow. Environmental reclamation, if even possible, is estimated to cost up to $1,000,000 per site. That equates to $50 billion statewide, all to grow an illicit plant that is destroying the brains and lives of our youth. California now produces 8 times more pot than is consumed locally, supplying 60 of 80% of the entire US black market for recreational pot, more than all Mexican cartels combined. A day of reckoning could be coming with AG Jeff Sessions at the helm. Roger will discuss the implications for cities, counties and the state, and why California should pause in the implementation of the entire program to legalize pot for recreational use.

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 requirement and no cost to attend. The Feather River Tea Party Patriots meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. sharp and will be held at the Crossroads Community Church, 445 B Street, Yuba City. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.; come early to register, socialize with like-minded patriots, and get a good seat. Contact Larry or Carla for Information: (530) 755-4409

By Stephen Frank condensed from Gregg Fishman

Fixing the process for building permits is just one of the problems facing developers and consumers. But, it needs to be done. In Nevada County they have streamline the process from 2-4 weeks to in many cases only one day. Money saved and shows a government willing to work for the people, not against them.

“In fact, the Nevada County Building Department used to have a backlog of requests for permits and plan reviews, partially because of the sequential process they had in place when several different departments needed to review the same project. Now, much of that backlog is gone because of an innovative process they put in place that simplifies obtaining a building permit for many projects. It didn’t cost any money and it didn’t take any additional resources. All it took was rethinking the existing process and trying to approach it from the customer’s standpoint.

Is this a challenge to the 57 other counties on how to save time and money=–at no extra cost?

john 1 24 18I have lived in the same house in Browns Valley for close to 40 years. During those years I was a volunteer fire fighter and one of the founders of the Loma Rica/Browns Valley Community Service District (The Fire Department). 35 years as a Charter member of the Foothill Lions, served a short time on the Board of Directors of the Browns Valley Irrigation District before being appointed, by Governor Pete Wilson, to the Yuba County Board of Supervisors. I also served as Chairman of the Yuba County Water Agency. For the last 17 years I have been the owner of the Territorial Dispatch Newspaper, a "Watch Dog on Government." For these reasons I feel that I am uniquely qualified to represent the people of Yuba County's 5th District.

I believe that to know how a politician votes is not enough. It is far more important to know what changes and direction are initiated by your elected representative. No more rubber stamps.

Before moving to Browns Valley I became an Eagle Scout, went to American River College, joined the United State Marine Corp Reserve, was Yard Foreman for Armco Steel in Davis, and owned a Gas Station in Carmichael. After the Jimmy Carter gas rationing fiasco in the mid 70's I closed the station and went to work for Montgomery Ward in Sacramento. Six months later I was transferred to Marysville to manage their Automotive Department.

My wife, Kitty, and I have been married almost 40 years. We have two daughters Melisa and Trisha and one grandson Evan.

David Joyce   1 24 18Local Air Force Veteran David Joyce has filed signature in lieu petitions with the local elections office and has started collecting signatures for his candidacy for County Supervisor District 1. The Marysville resident is returning to the area after living in Sacramento area for several years. He joined the Air Force in 2003 and was stationed at Beale AFB as a Munitions Technician until 2007. After his military service he worked as a Budget Analyst for the State of California and also was awarded a Mission Continues Fellowship which he served at Congressman Tom McClintock’s office where he specialized in Veteran Affairs.

In addition to his time with McClintock’s office he has over a decade of campaign experience ranging from School Board to local Congressional races and was elected to the Sacramento County Republican Central Committee during his time in Sacramento. The idea of running for public office was not originally in the plan when he and his wife relocated to Yuba County. “I’m running because the same problems this county had a decade ago when I was here are still going on and in some cases even worse. The more I started digging around the more I found out things I really did not like, it became a rabbit hole. My Wife and I cannot tolerate sitting on the sidelines. The outpouring of support we received locally when we started to explore running was amazing” says Joyce.

In addition to returning to the area, Joyce has started his own marketing company and finished his Master’s this past June. Joyce says his style of campaigning will be welcomed in his district, “The response to my platform and reason for running has been great. I’m a firm believer in meeting people in their homes and getting to know them and their concerns. I will govern the exact same way. I fully intend to have a daily mobile office in my district and being highly accessible, there are great people here and they deserve that”. Joyce states that his district concerns involve better fiscal management of local funds, the dire situation regarding illegal pot grows and bringing businesses to Yuba County.

David and his wife Kendra reside in Marysville with their daughter Lola. If you want to assist in signature gathering or get to know more about the campaign contact him directly at 530-301-6433 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Congressman Tom McClintock announced that the President of the United States has signed H.R. 381, designating a mountain in the John Muir Wilderness of the Sierra National Forest as “Sky Point.” The bill honors Marine SSgt Sky Mote of El Dorado, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on August 10, 2012.

On that day, SSgt Mote was at his post in the tactical operations center of the First Marine Special Operations Battalion in Helmand Province. When an Afghan police officer opened fire on the Marines at the operations center, Sergeant Mote was in an adjoining room. According to the Navy’s citation, “He instead grabbed his M4 rifle and entered the operations room, courageously exposing himself to a hail of gunfire in order to protect his fellow Marines. In his final act of bravery, he boldly engaged the gunman, now less than five meters in front of him, until falling mortally wounded.”

SSgt Mote was awarded the Navy Cross for his heroism in defending his fellow Marines. In addition, SSgt Mote had earned the Purple Heart, the Navy-Marine Corps Commendation Medal, the Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal, two Combat Action Ribbons and three Good Conduct Medals during his nine years of exemplary service to our nation.

The peak was chosen in consultation with the Mote family because it overlooks a region where Sky Mote often camped and hiked.

“We will not allow the young men from our region who perished in service to our country to be forgotten,” said Congressman McClintock. “Nor will we ever forget the daily anguish of the Gold Star families they leave behind. This bill is a small token of the commitment of our country and our community to remember the fallen and to grieve with their families.”

For many years illegal aliens received full blown drivers licenses from the California Department of Motor Vehicles—all they had to do, is what they do every day, LIE. In this case they were claiming they were here legally or citizens. It was never vetted, challenged or checked. Now a Court has determined that every person that gets a license in California is automatically registered to vote. Why should an illegal alien get the special drivers license, as 800,000 have. Instead claim citizenship and you get a license and a vote.

““We are very pleased that Californians will have easier access to voter registration,” said Jeremiah Levine, an attorney with Morrison Foerster who represented the voting rights groups. “We are especially satisfied that changes will be made before California’s statewide and federal primary elections.”

The state agreed to roll out a new program that will automatically register driver’s license applicants to vote unless they opt out. The program is part of AB 1461, dubbed the California New Motor Voter Act. Signed into law in October 2015, the new statute requires the DMV to forward records for all eligible applicants to the Secretary of State’s Office for registration unless those applicants elect not to register to vote.

Yup, the infamous League of Womens voters policy is to support corruption of the electoral process. No one is surprised. Then the Secretary of State, who refuses to remove illegal aliens from the voter rolls—he won’t check the special drivers license list for illegal aliens against the voter rolls—who believes it is OK for fraud in elections. April 1 may be the key date free elections, what is left of them, ends in California.

President Trump delivered a speech at the 99th Annual Farm Bureau Convention where he signed two executive orders to expand broadband deployment in rural areas.

The first order, “Streamlining and Expediting Requests to Locate Broadband Facilities in Rural America,” will accelerate the deployment of broadband in rural areas by ordering executive departments and agencies to reduce barriers to capital investment in broadband services. More specifically, the order will streamline the application process for broadband deployment on federal property. The second order is a Presidential Memorandum for the Secretary of the Interior that will support broadband tower facilities on federal property managed by the Department of the Interior (DOI). The order states “Lowering the costs of broadband deployment to rural areas can strengthen the business case for broadband facilities deployment and therefore amplify investments in broadband infrastructure. To that end, the executive branch will seek to make Federal assets more available for rural broadband deployment.” The order directs Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to identify assets managed by the DOI that may be used to support rural broadband deployment and adoption.

President Trump signed the executive orders the same day he received an official report from the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity (Task Force) that prioritized expanding broadband deployment in underserved rural areas. The Task Force was formed by President Trump to make recommendations to promote economic development and improve the quality of life in rural America. On Monday, the Task Force reported to the President that his Administration should focus on the five following priorities in rural America:

· Enhancing broadband access and commercial connections in the country's rural areas;

· Improving quality of life, including addressing opioids, education and recreation;

· Generating a reliable workforce;

· Advancing technological innovations; and,

· Economic development.

The Administration will have opportunities to address many of these recommendations in 2018 through the infrastructure package and the rural development title of the 2018 Farm Bill (a high priority for RCRC's advocacy team). In addition, the President pledged that his Administration will invest in infrastructure and continue to eliminate/reduce Obama-era regulations that hamstring rural economies. President Trump specifically praised his own order to repeal the Waters of the United States rule and pledged to cut regulations for logging and timber industries. The President also pledged that the 2018 Farm Bill will be done “on time” and offered his endorsement of the federal crop insurance program.

Reveles Formal   1 17 18Is running for Yuba County Superintendent of Schools

Dr. Francisco Reveles has announced his intention to run for the position of Yuba County Superintendent of Schools. “My hands-on leadership approach emphasizes a straight-talking style of communication based on community responsiveness and fiscal accountability. Dr. Reveles was appointed to the superintendent position in August 2016 and is a strong advocate for an educational system that reflects the aspirations and values of Yuba County families.

A 25-year Yuba County resident and educator, Dr. Reveles’ priorities center on strengthening responsive schools, quality early-childhood and special education programs, college and technical career readiness for all children, and student safety. This commitment is reflected in the county office’s close collaboration with Yuba College in developing an innovative college-based education center specifically focused on serving older youth with special needs.

And student safety is paramount for Dr. Reveles. He has moved forward in close collaboration with the Yuba County Office of Emergency Services with implementing a rapid response emergency notification system for all Yuba County school districts for crises situations such as the Oroville dam evacuations and foothill fires. Children’s safety at schools during such emergencies must be a priority and part of the county crisis response planning process.

Dr. Reveles’ view is that the county superintendent’s influence and impact extend beyond schools given that children do not exist in a vacuum. Crime, homelessness, substance abuse, and living condition all impact child development, directly or indirectly. In response, the Yuba County Office of Education is sponsoring the first-ever Children’s Summit: Issues and Implications scheduled for early spring, 2018. It will bring together family support agencies, educators, law enforcement, and community advocacy groups to share critical information with policy decision-makers.

This past December, Dr. Reveles also delivered a motivational presentation at the Government Center for men and women on probation and parole, many who were also parents. Dr. Reveles shared his struggles coming to Yuba County as a child with his homeless family and the importance of developing purpose in life centered on family, inner-strength, faith, and forgiveness.

Dr. Reveles has written a number of newspaper articles that reflect his emphasis on transparency in public office and creating meaningful connections with the community. His disdain for bureaucracies that tend to politically insulate themselves by communicating in sound bites and coded media clips was underscored in a recent newspaper article he wrote on the importance of educational leaders being straight and candid with the public on the recent state academic testing results. Other published stories highlighted Dr. Reveles’ optimistic perspective on what it means to be an American while another emphasized the critical importance of parent-child communication during these challenging times. All the published articles can be accessed through the Yuba County Office of Education web site.

Dr. Reveles stresses the importance of close collaboration with all Yuba County school districts given the superintendent’s statutory responsibly for fiscal oversight and the timely implementation of the Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAP).

Dr. Reveles holds a doctoral degree in Education, a Masters in School Counseling, and credentials in School Administration, Biology and Chemistry. Additionally, he possesses extensive experience as a school administrator, university researcher, and educational textbook author/film producer. He has presented parenting seminars across the country, delivered educational keynote addresses for NASA, and is currently serving as an Honorary Base Commander at Beale AFB as well as Yuba County Rotary member. His hands-on leadership approach and life’s work with youth were recognized as exemplary by the Center for Cowboy Ethics based in Colorado and were highlighted in a nationally released book and film.

Chris Carlos   1 17 18Local attorney, Chris Carlos, has announced his candidacy for the office of Sutter County District Attorney (DA). Lifelong Yuba-Sutter resident, Carlos has been a practicing attorney for 18 years.

Carlos served as a Deputy DA in the Butte County District Attorney’s Office, Deputy DA in the Sutter County District Attorney’s Office, and has run his own private law practice in Yuba City for the past seven years.

Carlos was a founding member and prosecutor for the Sutter County Gang Task Force. In his first year, gang members were sentenced to over 300 years in prison.

“We were all hoping that when Carl Adams left as DA, things would get better. It hasn’t happened. Amanda’s reign is full of turmoil again,” said Carlos. “Just this Sunday, the Appeal’s own editorial referred to Amanda’s reign as ‘side-show status.’ I’m running because this is my home and Sutter County deserves better.”

Carlos has prosecuted numerous murder cases and 39 jury trials, including numerous first degree murder and first degree gang murder trials. Current Sutter County DA, Amanda Hopper, has never tried a murder case.

“Amanda lacked the fundamental experience needed for the job,” said Carlos. “We elected a person who had little experience managing employees and zero experience with the toughest cases.

To compound this, Amanda has turned on her top employees, two of which are now suing her, and morale in the department has tanked. It’s really sad.”

The Sutter County District Attorney’s Office budget for 2016 was $4,084,137 and they filed a total of 3,070 cases. In comparison, the Yuba County District Attorney’s Office budget was $2,379,044 and they filed a total of 2,929 cases. Which means Yuba County filed essentially the same number of cases, on half the budget.

“We are paying more, for a lot less service from our DA. It’s simply not fair to the taxpayers of Sutter County,” said Carlos. “My slogan is ‘less politics, more service.’ This cycle, voters absolutely have a chance to make Sutter County a safer place to live and work.”

Carlos received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from San Francisco State University in 1996, and his law degree from the University of California, Hastings, in 1999.

Chris and Elizabeth have been married for 18 years and are both lifelong Yuba-Sutter residents. Through his law firm, Santana and Carlos, Chris does a substantial amount of pro bono work, and reduced rate work for local charitable causes. Chris is also a former coach and board member for Peach Bowl Little League.

KG Karla Nemeth   1 17 18Karla Nemeth was appointed Director of the California Department of Water Resources by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. on January 10, 2018.

“In a potential conflict of interest, Nemeth is married to Tom Philp, a former Sacramento Bee editorial writer who now works as a senior strategist for the Metropolitan Water District (MWDM) of Southern California. MWD is the largest member agency of the State Water Project that DWR oversees and is a key promoter of the Delta Tunnels “.

Goal to battle alcohol-related crime

The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office has been awarded a $14,500.00 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to battle alcohol-related crime.

The grant was awarded to the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office from ABC through the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The goal of the grant is to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors and reduce alcohol-related crime through multiple enforcement, educational, and prevention programs conducted by local law enforcement officers.

A portion of the grant funds will be used for enforcement efforts. Programs funded through the grant include Minor Decoy and Shoulder Tap Decoy operations, Informed Merchants Preventing Alcohol-Related Crime Tendency (IMPACT) inspections, Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drug (LEAD) trainings and Target Responsibility for Alcohol-Connected Emergencies (TRACE) trainings.

The grants strengthen local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local law enforcement and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help communities reduce alcohol-related problems.

“The program improves the quality of life in neighborhoods,” said ABC Director Jacob Appelsmith. “We’ve seen a real difference in communities where the grant program resources have been invested.”

The funds will be used to reduce the number of alcoholic beverage sales to minors, obviously intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitations of alcohol, and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs.

ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.

feather river teaScott Bennett 1  1 10 18With Guest Speaker Scott Bennett

Yuba City, Ca.

The new Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced Scott Bennett, U.S. Army Special Operations Officer and Psychological Warfare analyst, will be the Special Guest Speaker for their next meeting, Monday, January 15, 2018.

In 2011, 2LT Scott Bennett, U.S. Army Special Operations Officer and Psychological Warfare analyst, worked in the highest levels of counterterrorism, intelligence, and politics in Washington DC. He had been awarded a Direct Military Commission by the President of the United States, and was a leading writer and thinker at the State Department Counterterrorism Office, U.S. Special Operations Command, U.S. Special Operations Command, and the George W. Bush Administration.

After discovering and exposing massive corruption within the Obama White House and military contractors, he was unlawfully imprisoned on trumped up charges by the Obama Administration. Why? In performance of his sworn military officer's oath, Bennett had filed intelligence analysis reports exposing illegal terrorist finance corruption and money-laundering operations involving the Clinton Foundation, the law firm Covington and Burling, the Department of Justice (Eric Holder, Lanny Breuer, Loretta Lynch, Kevin Downing), Saudi Arabia-Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood, US Central Command, and the international defense contractor, Booz Allen Hamilton.

Lt Bennett was threatened, then imprisoned and tortured in a horrifying "Kafkaesque" sojourn; but with a renewed spiritual strength, and an unyielding tenacity and determination, Bennett eventually fought his way out and exposed the "domestic enemies" who had subverted the U.S. Constitution and betrayed the American people. It was in the traumatic silence of jail and agony of isolation that Lt Scott Bennett was able to synthesize his past work, contacts, experience and intelligence research to discover the real story behind Booz Allen Hamilton, the Carlyle Group, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and give the American people the truth they always suspected, but could never find. Now they can.

The compilation of reports and letters to Congress, and synthesized intelligence materials (unclassified) is told in his book "SHELL GAME." Autographed copies will be available at the meeting. Contact info available at:

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.

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