Marysville, Ca.

 

 In a first-of-its-kind effort, a group of Yuba County farmers has established a non-profit organization and fund, titled the Yuba River Endowment, to benefit Yuba County residents.

 

 As their first funding effort, Endowment board members unanimously voted to present the Marysville High School FFA program with $15,000 to cover all out-of-pocket expenses for FFA students to attend all Field Day and State competitions for the current school year. The funds will cover all transportation costs, hotel and registration fees for 12 scheduled trips, helping approximately 230 students this year.

 

 “Marysville High School has invested a lot in expanding our ag programs and infrastructure, but we are not able to cover out-of-pocket expenses for students to attend FFA competitions,” said Marysville High School Principal, Shevaun Mathews. “The Yuba River Endowment funding is truly a blessing that will take the burden off students to raise the funds themselves, and will allow all students who qualify to experience these events.”

 

 The Yuba River Endowment was established by a select group of Yuba County farmers who have a legal right to water that flows on the Yuba River. In a truly win-win situation, the farmers’ water is used to provide the required flow levels to protect endangered fishes on the Yuba River, then once past this critical point, the water can be sold to drought-stricken areas of the state.

 

 Proceeds from these transfers provide the funding for the Yuba River Endowment, allow these farmers to expand their agricultural operations and create jobs in Yuba County. Through generations of conservation, cooperation, infrastructure investment and groundwater recharge, Yuba County is a model for water management in California.

The Endowment was created to give back to the community, and provide organizational and educational grants to improve the quality of life in Yuba County.

 

 “Our motto for the Endowment is ‘Local Farmers Giving Back’,” said local farmer and Yuba River Endowment President, Al Lassaga. “Our board is made up of representatives from seven different Yuba County regions, from Browns Valley to Wheatland. Investing our money back into our community, and specifically into agricultural education and our future farmers, just makes sense. We want to make sure agriculture stays strong in Yuba County for generations to come.”

 

 Yuba River Endowment board members awarded the funds during the Marysville High School FFA meeting, Tuesday, December 10th.

mike leahyBWMike Leahy ls pleased to announce his campaign for re-election to the position of County Supervisor in the 2nd District of Yuba County.

Mike has served the 2nd District in Yuba County since 2015 in this time he has been a voice for the people. Mike "withdrew" from the Cal Pers retirement program offered by the county - As he stated elected Reps. should not build a retirement on the back of the people whom elected them. This is a principle he argued at the last election.

We have approved funding for 4 blocks of sidewalks and streetlights surrounding Cedar Lane School in west Linda the construction is charted to commence in the next year.

 

Feather River Blvd is getting a multi-family project behind the cloverleaf market.

The sidewalks and lighting are also scheduled to be installed in this area -

Mike's participation on SACOG (Sacramento Area of Governments) has brought funding to Marysville for the 5th street project.

 

 

The SACOG budget was in jeopardy of being allocated elsewhere yet through working with SAGOG he stopped that and retained the funding for projects in Yuba County and Marysville on your behalf.

 

Economic development, bringing jobs and businesses to our area is the pathway to prosperity for all.

We now have taken action to bring infrastructure that will allow new business to relocate to Yuba County.

We took steps to eliminate Yuba county's unfunded liabilities through cal-pers. we

established a "Cal PARS" account that is working to eliminate our liabilities.

 

The Marysville Ring levee funding was entered into the presidential budget proposal after years of work from the water agency and a simple request made directly to the president., “I simply asked him for help on the issue and it showed up on his budget.”

 

Yuba Sutter Transit - the contract was up for the provider so we preformed an RFP and interviewed many providers. Selecting a new provider for service that came with some rather interesting benefits to the community. The result, all of the employees have received increases in salary and benefits and the overall providers budget has gone down. The employees were so happy that someone did something for their benefit.

 

Mike is Chair of Yuba Sutter Transit.

 

Area4 on Aging. Mike serves Area4 to ensure funding for our seniors in projects that matter to them.

We know Gavin Newsom lied about his opposition to the High Speed Rail.  We know that Newsom decided to force 80,000 independent truckers into corporation workers and union bribe payers.  We know that Newsom has declared war on California  farmers by limiting water allocations to make up for the Trump Federal increase in water to farmers.  I do not have to tell you why he is forcing our kids from k-12 to be proficient in the terms, use and actions of sex, while keeping them under the control of failed schools by working to kill off charter schools.  Reasons for Recall are many.

If you are an opponent of the Newsom actions and want to support it, there are two petitions—you can sign both—demanding a Recall of Guv Newsom.  You can donate to either, ask for petitions to distribute and get signed.  Beware of those using the Recall to raise money for their own goals—NOT the Recall of Newsom.

 

 “Meanwhile: The California Republican Party has sent a fund-raising pitch seemingly embracing an effort to recall Newsom. 

 

GOP Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson said money raised would go to the party, not the recall backers, the Sacramento Bee reported.

 

A long shot: Qualifying a recall for the ballot could cost $10 million. In its most recent filing, the California Republican Party had $1.6 million in the bank, and many legislative seats to defend.”

 

You read that right—“ GOP Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson said money raised would go to the party, not the recall backers, the Sacramento Bee reported.”

 

Glad to see the California Republican party took a strong stand against Governor Newsom.

 

The CRP could at little cost promote the Recall petitions, get the Counties to promote the petitions, ask people on their lists to support the Recall.  But asking for money for the Recall then announcing the money is NOT going to be spent on the Recall is a problem.  I am sure they will correct this.

To help house displaced farm animals during times of disaster, portable livestock pens have been deployed to seven fairgrounds around California. The pens, purchased through a partnership between the California Farm Bureau Federation’s charitable foundation and the California Department of Food and Agriculture, were formally dedicated during a ceremony today at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds in Yuba City.

 “During wildfires, floods and other emergencies, farmers and ranchers take great care to be sure their animals can be safely evacuated, often to nearby fairgrounds,” CFBF President Jamie Johansson said. “These portable livestock pens will make it easier for fairgrounds to fulfill their role as shelters during disasters.”

 After the Camp Fire ravaged part of rural California last year, the California Bountiful Foundation—a charitable foundation established by CFBF—created a Farm and Rural Disaster Fund. Donations from 50 individuals and companies allowed the foundation to contribute $75,000 toward purchase of the portable livestock pens.

 With additional funds from CDFA, a total of 280 pens were acquired. CDFA has distributed 40 pens apiece to fairgrounds in Anderson, Auburn, Lakeport, Merced, San Mateo, Ventura and Yuba City. Manufactured by Plymouth Industries of Nebraska, the panels to create the pens are stored on racks so they can be quickly mobilized and transported during a disaster.

 “Already this fall, we’ve seen the pens used to help livestock during the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County,” Johansson said. “We also look forward to having them used for happier occasions, such as ongoing events at county fairgrounds around the state.”

 For more information about the Farm and Rural Disaster Fund, see the CFBF website at www.cfbf.com.

 The Feather River Tea Party Patriots announced their Monday, December 2, 2019 meeting will be a Special Movie Night featuring the Dennis Michael Lynch film “They Come to America IV – The Cost of Politics.” 

 

The 4th installment of the Dennis Michael Lynch “THEY COME TO AMERICA” film series documents events on our Southern border emphasizing why we need a wall and more U.S. Border Patrol assets, now.  The film shows how politicians use the immigration issue to wedge Americans against each other. 

 

DML also focuses on the San Diego border and how the sewage, industrial and Medical waste, and toxic chemicals are flowing in from the Tajuana River polluting US waterways.

 

In addition to the wall, the movie shows why we need more border assets and Border Patrol Agents all across the border especially Florida, the Bahamas, and U.S. Islands where 100’s of illegal aliens enter weekly along with $ Billions in every type of drugs.

 

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Chris Harris explains how the cartels control the borders and how the increase in drug smuggling has increased the assaults of border patrol agents and citizens.  Rhetoric from the liberal open-border Democrats have caused a massive increase in asylum seekers, including terrorists.

 

President Trump promised to implement E-Verity for all employers during his 2016 campaign for President.  To date , he has done nothing, not even one tweet.  The National Chamber of Commerce and the open-border Democrats have tied his hands.  Hopefully when he is re-elected in 2020, he will fulfil this campaign promise.

 

Don’t forget – If time permits, our regular feature “In The News” with Paul Preston, Agenda 21 Radio Host and President of the New California State movement, will follow our Special Movie.  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. 

The meeting will be Monday, December 2, 2019, at the Crossroads Community Church, 445 B Street, Yuba City, CA 95991.  Contact Larry or Carla at (530) 755-4409.

Water supply reliability, flood risk reduction projects, new emergency response equipment

Marysville, Ca

 

 Three local agencies received a financial boost today with the help of Yuba Water Agency. 

 

Olivehurst Public Utility District steel water main project - $1.4 million

 

A $1.4 million grant provides funding to help OPUD replace the steel water main it uses to deliver water to approximately 10,000 residents in the disadvantaged community of Olivehurst. 

 

The current steel water main has been in service well past its life expectancy and is prone to leakage and inefficiencies, which leads to the loss of approximately 78 million gallons of water each year. 

 

“Replacing this outdated infrastructure is essential to improving efficiency and maintaining a reliable water supply for the residents in Olivehurst,” said Yuba Water Agency Director Doug Lofton, whose district includes Olivehurst. 

OPUD will replace approximately 14,000 feet of the aging steel water main with 8-inch-diameter PVC pipe. The district will also replace 25 fire hydrants, 69 8-inch valves and 40 tie-in locations to the existing water main lines. 

This is one of several projects that are being presented to the Department of Water Resources to compete for $24 million in funding for various water projects that benefit disadvantaged communities. That includes water supply and flood risk reduction projects for Yuba County, Reclamation District 784, Linda County Water District, and the cities of Wheatland and Marysville, and the local contribution from Yuba Water makes the entire group of projects more competitive for the larger grant. 

 

Yuba Water is able to grant these funds to OPUD because this project will help conserve water, and ensuring a sustainable water supply is a primary agency mission.

 

Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority Hallwood flood risk project - $500,000 

 

Yuba Water Agency also approved a grant for the Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority to help reduce the flood risk for the community of Hallwood. 

 

The $500,000 in funding will be used by TRLIA to continue its efforts to strengthen the Yuba River North Training Wall.

 

“We’re happy to expand TRLIA’s reach to take the lead on this important flood risk reduction project,” said TRLIA Executive Director Paul Brunner. “Yuba Water Agency funding will be used for preliminary engineering, design and environmental work, which is an important first step in project implementation.” 

 

Originally, the purpose of the Yuba River North Training Wall was to confine, or train, the boundaries of the Yuba River to manage mining debris. However, during the high-water events in 2017 and 2018, Hallwood experienced localized shallow flooding due to erosion of the training wall. A temporary fix was constructed last year, and this funding will begin the process to find a long-term solution. 

 

Yuba Water Agency’s grant to Three Rivers is part of the agency’s long-standing mission to reduce flood risk for Yuba County. In prior years, Yuba Water has assisted TRLIA with policy, technical and financial aid, including carrying the local cost-share for the construction of the Feather River Setback Levee. Yuba Water is repaying $5.5 million per year for that project. 

 

Reducing flood risk is one of the primary reasons Yuba Water was formed.

 

Marysville Police Department emergency response vehicle and trailer - $10,000

 

This grant will fund an all-terrain vehicle and an all-terrain vehicle rescue trailer for the Marysville Police Department as part of Yuba Water Agency’s Bill Shaw Rescue Equipment and Training Grant program. 

 

The new ATV will be used to quickly and effectively respond to people trapped in the river bottoms due to rising water levels, and the trailer will allow officers to stabilize people experiencing medical issues during those incidents.

The Bill Shaw Rescue Equipment and Training Grant Program, which was created in 2018, is designed for first-responder agencies in Yuba County and will cover the one-time costs of up to $10,000 per applicant annually, associated with the purchase of rescue equipment and specialized personnel training. Since its inception, the program has supported 14 agencies with $178,500 in grants.

an informational meeting.  Nicole Roldan-Leben, with USDA-Rural

Development, will discuss their grant and/or low-interest loan

programs.  Both are designed to help residents pay for home fire-

safe upgrades and to improve their defensible space. 

 

Dr. Kate Wilkin, with UC Extension and an active member of

our Fire Safe Council, will share information on the most important

secured that will pay for the hazard and risk assessments that are

part of creating a Firewise USA Community.

On Thursday, November 14th, the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) hosted its third Homeowners’ Insurance Ad Hoc Committee (Committee) meeting.  This meeting was held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Ventura County.  RCRC member counties have been disproportionally impacted by recent homeowners’ insurance cancellations and non-renewals following years of devastating wildfires in California.  

 

In June, the RCRC Board of Directors approved a resolution creating the Committee.  The Committee is tasked with considering potential solutions for the increase in homeowners’ insurance cancellations and non-renewals in high fire risk areas.  In particular, how county governments can develop programs and measures to encourage greater community-wide access and affordability to homeowners insurance. 

 

The potential solutions include, but are not limited to, introducing additional insurers into rural areas, working with the insurance industry on an insurance risk-reduction model, examining insurance industry risk modeling, re-creating/revising California’s Fair Access to Insurance Requirements Plan (FAIR Plan), and working directly with policy advocates, the California Legislature, and the Department of Insurance to explore other options.

 

The Committee is tasked with issuing a report of findings no later than the August 2020 Board of Directors meeting.
