Educational Support Center Revised.jpg

The Yuba County Office of Education is pleased to announce that it will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its recently renovated Educational Support Center located at

1010 I Street in Marysville on Thursday, February 21, 2019. Tours of the facility will

begin at 4:30pm with the ribbon cutting ceremony taking place at 5:50pm.

“We’re looking forward to sharing the mission and services of the Educational Support Center as we continue our efforts to build a more responsive service model for students and families of Yuba County,” said Dr. Francisco Reveles, Yuba County Superintendent of Schools. “The center significantly enhances our response capability by bringing together essential student services such as speech therapy, psychological, vision and special needs assessments, all previously housed at different locations throughout the county. At the same time, we are able to rehabilitate a building that has long been an eyesore for our community.”

With the increasing numbers and severity of students with special needs in Yuba County, this consolidation of services and personnel is critical to our mission at YCOE. Of note, no additional administrators or staff were hired and funding for the renovation came from the sale of YCOE property no longer meeting its intended purpose and from deferred maintenance.

“We’re delighted that the Yuba-Sutter Chamber of Commerce has joined us in this ribbon-cutting event and look forward to sharing our vision with the community,” stated Dr. Reveles.

Marysville, Ca.

Yuba Sutter Arts is in the midst of an ongoing series of programs and events recognizing student artistic achievement during the first quarter of 2019.   Next up are the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.   This program is a collaborative effort between Yuba Sutter Arts and the Sutter County Community Memorial Museum.  The Museum manages the “Art” part of the program and Yuba Sutter Arts handles the “Writing” piece.   Collectively, these two organizations are the Northern California Regional Affiliates for seven counties; Colusa, Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties.

Now in its second year as the Northern California affiliate for the Writing Awards program, Yuba Sutter Arts received over 60 writing submissions, more than double last year’s intake.  The Museum received more than 150 submissions of 2-D and 3-D art.  And, yes, this is Scholastic like the publishing company that puts on the book fairs at schools from which kids get a bit of that old-time book store experience.  

The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, February 23 from 3-5pm at the Burrows Theater, 630 E Street in Marysville.  The Gallery at Yuba Sutter Arts will have many of the art submissions on display and there will be a few select readings by the writing award winners during the awards ceremony in the adjacent theater. This is a free event and the public is invited.  Refreshments will be served.

Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth. Join us as we celebrate the winners at this annual gathering of students, educators, supporters and the general public.  Scholastic Awards alumni include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Lena Dunham, Robert Redford, Joyce Carol Oates, and many others.

Earning a Scholastic art or writing award is often the first moment of validation for a young artist or writer and can function as a catalyst that leads to a lifelong commitment to develop and apply their creative gift—no matter what career or path they choose.  The program helps celebrate the accomplishments of creative students, extending opportunities for recognition, exhibition, publication, and scholarships to teenagers who demonstrate exceptional aptitude in writing and art.

Please join us as we honor the achievements of creative teens. We feel that now, more than ever, it is important to recog­nize creative accomplishments and provide students with the support and resources they need to make creativity a lifelong pursuit. We hope you’ll join us at the ceremony and help honor these remarkable young thinkers.

Governor Gavin Newsom presented his first State of the State to the Legislature. Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), who represents Wheatland, CA and the region devastated by the Camp Fire, issued the following statement: 

"I applaud the Governor for agreeing with Republicans that the high-speed rail costs too much. We should stop funding this multi-billion dollar train to nowhere - all of it.

“It is encouraging to hear the Governor speak about the recovery of Butte County and the needs of the thousands of families devastated by the Camp Fire.

“But singling out Wheatland, a town of 3,497 people where the median home value is $306,000, is disingenuous at best. Wheatland in Yuba County is not the epicenter for the pent-up demand for affordable housing. 

"San Francisco’s median home value is $1,374,800. Multiple generations of families are living together to afford skyrocketing prices in the Bay Area.

“Wheatland, unlike Marin County, did not use its powerful political allies in Sacramento to exempt itself from the housing element law that allowed them to plan for fewer low-income housing units lasting through 2028.

“With its small town resources, Wheatland continues to make a good faith effort to meet the state’s housing element requirements. And it is my hope that Wheatland will have an equal seat at the table with the Administration to have the resources to meet the state’s requirements.”

Not a clue Marysville -- stop shooting yourself in the foot!  You plan to start charging up to $16,000  in fees to organizers of such notorious events as the Bok Kai Parade?  So this means you plan to also charge preposterous fees for all future events, such as the Peach Festival; Christmas Parade, etc. that people look forward to and attend each year, while claiming you are doing this because you want to be good stewards of the public's funding and how it's being spent.  Really??

Since when do you care about what "the people" want?  It's always been about how  you can figure out ways to keep all the money for yourselves that you can, while robbing "your people" of it's last dime.

Now you want to take away the last few family events that brings people in to your "fair" town.  These events are the only times people even come in to Marysville in  huge numbers and spend lots of money. Mostly they just avoid Marysville altogether!

We do understand that money has to come from somewhere to sponsor these events, but isn't that why  you charge us all those exorbitant fees, fines, taxes, etc.?  Shouldn't some of that ripped off money be given back to "the people" instead of scheming to take away what little pleasure people have left in life???

Shame on you! Get a clue,

                      bordercrossing.jpg

The weekend just before President Trump’s El Paso, Texas rally on Monday, Feb. 11th, Steny Hoyer (2nd in command behind Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Washington, D.C.’s People’s House) headed a contingent of Democrats to inspect the immigrant problem at the border town of El Paso.  Hoyer appeared on some TV news shows saying, in part, “There’s no problem in El Paso…it is safe and secure.”  Those quotes were echoed by other Democrats in Hoyer’s group.  They were absolutely correct.  El Paso was safe and secure because of a Sturdy, Safe Wall…part of the Sturdy Wall that snakes through the border towns of El Paso and Juarez, Mexico.

Jim Acosta, the CNN News Clown (can’t bring myself to call him a journalist) tried the same trick a few weeks earlier when he was at a border wall and also said, in part, “Hey, there’s no problem here, the border is safe and secure.”  Here again, I have to agree with Jim…it’s because of a Sturdy Wall, STUPID.  I guess I have to lump Hoyer and his bunch into that characterization and pluralize it into “Stupids.”

While President Trump was speaking at the El Paso Rally, there were two large contingents of illegals making their moves across the border at about the same time…the first from right across the border from El Paso, across the Rio Grande River, in Sunland Park, New Mexico (close enough to be a suburb of Juarez…and another group about 100 miles away as the crow flys at Antelope Wells, New Mexico…way beyond the end of the barrier (wall) in the El Paso sector.

                                                         Sunland Park

Officials with the U.S Border Patrol said they took over 300 undocumented immigrants into custody Monday night Feb 11th, in Sunland Park, New Mexico.

Border Patrol agents said shortly after midnight agents noticed a group of 311 undocumented immigrants making their way around a pedestrian fence and took them into custody.

Border Patrol said this is the first large group of people apprehended in Sunland Park this year.

The group consisted of primarily of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles, according to Border Patrol.

                                                            Antelope Wells

The Border Patrol's El Paso sector announced Monday Feb 11th, that its agents had taken 330 migrants into custody, hours before President Trump was to visit the sector to make his latest pitch for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The migrants were arrested shortly after midnight at the Antelope Wells entry point in southern New Mexico, which is part of the Border Patrol's El Paso sector. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in a statement that the group was composed primarily of "Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles" and was the 28th group of 100 (2,800) or more of migrants to be apprehended in the El Paso sector since the beginning of October.

"Criminal organizations continue to exploit innocent human lives in order to enhance their illicit activities without due regard to the risks of human life," CBP said in a statement. "In most cases these smugglers never cross the border themselves in order to avoid apprehension."

This marks the second large group to be arrested near the port in less than a week. On Friday Feb 8th, agents arrested 290 Central Americans who entered the country illegally.

Nonetheless, Antelope Wells remains as one of 43 official ports of entry along the international line dividing the U.S. and Mexico and has the distinction of being the least-used legal crossing on the southern border… but the illegal migrant traffic seems to be accelerating.

The international border on both sides of tiny Antelope Wells, in southwestern New Mexico, is open desert with no fence. New Mexico has almost no security fencing along its international border — just two miles of a corrugated metal barrier in Sunland Park, a city in New Mexico's southeastern corner.

In President Trump’s State of the Union address he explains some of the problems at our southern border, in part;

“As we speak, large, organized caravans are on the march to the United States.  We have just heard that Mexican cities, in order to remove the illegal immigrants from their communities, are getting trucks and buses to bring them up to our country in areas where there is little border protection.  I have ordered another 3,750 troops to our southern border to prepare for the tremendous onslaught.

No issue better illustrates the divide between America’s working class and America’s political class than illegal immigration.  Wealthy politicians and donors push for open borders while living their lives behind walls and gates and guards.

Meanwhile, working class Americans are left to pay the price for mass illegal migration — reduced jobs, lower wages, overburdened schools and hospitals, increased crime, and a depleted social safety net.

Human traffickers and sex traffickers take advantage of the wide open areas between our ports of entry to smuggle thousands of young girls and women into the United States and to sell them into prostitution and modern-day slavery.

The savage gang, MS-13, now operates in 20 different American States, and they almost all come through our southern border.  Just yesterday, an MS-13 gang member was taken into custody for a fatal shooting on a subway platform in New York City.  We are removing these gang members by the thousands, but until we secure our border they’re going to keep streaming back in.

My administration has sent to the Congress a commonsense proposal to end the crisis on our southern border.

It includes humanitarian assistance, more law enforcement, drug detection at our ports, closing loopholes that enable child smuggling, and plans for a new physical barrier, or wall, to secure the vast areas between our ports of entry.  In the past, most of the people in this room voted for a wall — but the proper wall never got built.  I’ll get it built.

This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall.  It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.”

For several million dollars San Diego State University will have a faculty and Administration that is diverse—by nationality, immigration status, gender, sexual orientation and maybe even left handed vs. right handed people.  One area that will not be diverse is ideology—unless you are a believer in racial discrimination, identification politics, hate those that believe in freedom, you will not get a job.  I would add that committed Christians will also be unwelcomed at this school.

Diversity? Politically only the Left need apply.

“The diversity initiative was spelled out in an email to the campus community from J. Luke Wood, associate vice president for faculty diversity and inclusion at San Diego State.

“Some examples of trainings will include unconscious and implicit bias, racial/gender microaggressions, teaching practices for underserved students, cultural competency, and becoming a Hispanic serving institution,” Wood stated in his email.

The impetus for the initiative is a University Senate resolution approved in February 2018 “to create a campus-wide diversity plan,” according to the email from Wood, which added the resolution required individual diversity plans be developed for all academic and administrative divisions.

Want indoctrination?  Go to San Diego State.  Want an education that is diverse—Hillsdale College and other schools that educate, not indoctrinate.

Just like every California resident, counties up and down the state – especially rural counties – often struggle to accomplish required tasks in a system that continually finds ways to direct county money away to non-county initiatives. In its effort to address issues associated with our troubled youth, Yuba and Sutter counties had to get creative to make things work.

Over the past few years, it became evident that the resources available to maintain a two-county operation at standards required by law were scarce, so Yuba and Sutter counties began working with Colusa County to explore other solutions.

Since 1976, Yuba and Sutter counties have worked together to increase successes for probation youth in the local communities through a number of effective partnerships, including an arrangement for a shared Juvenile Hall program. For more than 40 years, new programs were implemented and existing programs expanded in order to meet growing needs of the young population.

The Maxine Singer Youth Guidance Center “Camp Singer,” located adjacent to the Juvenile Hall, was established in 2001 as a program for developing an alternative for the placement of youth coming from outside our area, as well as for extended Juvenile Hall stays. The very next year in 2002, a secured housing unit was built that could house 15 youth, as well as periodically house juvenile offenders being prosecuted in adult court.

Throughout the years, Yuba County took the lead in operating the facilities and programs, which include the program design, staffing, medical care, and all other functions at the institution. The costs were shared equally by Yuba and Sutter counties.

As the aging youth facilities at the western end of 14th Street in Marysville reached the end of their usefulness, it became necessary to look toward establishing a modern juvenile hall to serve the region; a task significantly hampered by limited available funding. County leaders needed to get creative in developing a solution.

In 2014, the Yuba and Sutter counties partnered with Colusa County and entered into the Tri-County Joint Powers Agreement. This regional approach permitted Colusa to transfer their awarded $5.7 million SB 81 Local Youthful Offender Rehabilitation Facilities Construction Grant to the development of the Tri-County Juvenile Rehabilitation Facility.

Building on that success, Yuba County was able to obtain approximately $9.6 million in additional SB 81 funding, bringing the total to $15.3 million for a new three-county juvenile hall. The three county partnership clears the way for replacement of an inefficient old facility and overall improvements that better-serve the interests of our juvenile population. 

“Not only has our partnership saved taxpayers millions of dollars, but more importantly we have been able to leverage local resources that have redirected hundreds of our youths’ lives,” said Yuba County Probation Chief Jim Arnold.

In 2015, an amended Joint Powers Agreement was crafted that established how the three counties would share costs related to operation of the new facility.  Yuba and Sutter will each cover 44 percent of those costs, while Colusa County will be responsible for the remaining 12 percent.

“Youth who were previously sent to group homes out of the area have been able to participate in a camp program in their own community, along with their families, while also giving back to the community with extensive community service,” Sutter County Chief Probation Officer Donna Garcia said.

Construction of the new three county Juvenile Hall facility is expected to begin as early as next year across the street from the current hall on 14th Street in Marysville.

On Monday, 2/11/19, Governor Gavin Newsom signed a General Order rescinding previous authorization for California National Guard operations at the U.S. – Mexico border that allowed California National Guard personnel to perform duties traditionally undertaken by the federal government.  At the time of the Order, approximately 360 members of the California National Guard were deployed at the border at the request of the White House to provide support for the federal government in border operations. 

Last week, President Trump announced he will be deploying 3,750 U.S. military personnel to the U.S. – Mexico border.  Governor Newsom’s General Order cites this development as the primary reason for California to reprioritize its National Guard deployment.

Governor Newsom’s General Order redeploys personnel to focus on other threats facing the state by:

  • Authorizing 110 personnel to prepare for the upcoming fire season by supporting CAL FIRE in fire prevention and fire suppression efforts;
  • Authorizing the expansion of the California National Guard’s statewide Counterdrug Task Force by at least 150 personnel; and,
  • Authorizing 100 personnel to conduct counter narcotics search and seizure operations targeting transnational criminal organization around ports of entry.

Of concern to the  Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) is the deployment of National Guard personnel to address illegal cannabis production and other illicit narcotics.  The Governor’s office indicates that much of the National Guard’s efforts in this aspect of the draw down will occur on the state’s public lands.

According to the Governor’s office, the National Guard will begin making preparations to carry out the order immediately and have the draw down in effect by March 31, 2019.

Marysville, Ca.

Yuba Sutter Arts is proud to announce the next series of classes in its Ceramics for Veterans program.  Titled, “An Introduction to Wheel Throwing,” the classes will be offered at the studio of teaching artist and Chris Thompson’s studio in Sacramento.  There will be two sessions offered; Sundays, February 24 - March 24 from 10am —1pm or Sundays, February 24 - March 24 from 2—5pm.  Chris’s studio is part of an artists’ collective and is located at 202 23rd Street, Sacramento, CA 95816.  Space is very limited so be sure to call or email to register as soon as possible.

The classes will offer an introduction to basic throwing techniques for bowl or plate formation. Glazing and surface treatment will also be covered. Those comfortable throwing the basic shapes will be able to try more complex forms like pitchers or covered jars.  Students will learn the technical aspects of glazing and firing.  Veterans will leave with a sense of accomplishment and finished projects.  These classes are offered free of charge to all Veterans, active duty military and immediate family members.

Classes will be led by well-known northern California ceramic artist, Chris Thompson.  Chris is also a U.S Air Force Veteran who served between 1979 and 1989. He currently teaches at Sacramento State.  Chris first worked with Yuba Sutter Arts in 2013 during his “Thousand Bowls” Feed the Hungry public art project.  Yuba Sutter Arts also partnered with Chris during its “Veterans Mural Art Park” project in Marysville in early 2016. Chris contributed to the project as both a participating Veteran and an artist/mentor to other Veterans. 

“Art is about bringing community together,” said Chris.  “I believe it can be a unifying force in the social fabric of our society.  I enjoy making art that speaks about social awareness or social needs and especially art that supports our Veterans,” he added. 

Ceramics for Veterans is funded by Yuba Sutter Arts and the California Arts Council’s Veterans in the Arts program which is rooted in the Council’s desire to address the needs and improve the lives of California's Veterans through the arts. Veterans in the Arts seeks to increase equity, access, and opportunities for Veterans to participate in quality arts programming that is sensitive and responsive to their unique experiences.

Again, this project is open to all Veterans and their families in Sutter and Yuba Counties at no cost.  To register or for additional information, contact David Read at 530-749-8065 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
