Galatians 6:6-8, "Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life," sent by Frank Tallerico 10/20/15

The wrong person (Dennis Lynch) is declared the (dam) 'expert,' by Rex Cozzalio, Hornbrook, CA letter to editor of H&N, posted to KBC 10/30/15. "Mr. Lynch receives no negative consequence for failure of any of his assurances, but tens of thousands of vested residents unrepresented in the KBRA/KHSA who know the unaccountable environmental promises are lies have been and will be those subject to the greatest confiscation and uncompensated loss of environment, lives, and futures."

Reg LeQuieuMallams' use of water didn't short anyone; Project irrigators got the water they were told they would get, H&N commentary by Reg LeQuieu, Klamath County and retired Klamath County Assessor, posted to KBC 10/30/15. "Mallams’ well is over a half mile from the Sycan River and over two miles from the Sprague River...there is no evidence that using his well somehow reduces the flow of the rivers..."

Everyone not part of KBRA process, by Marvin Cantrell, Klamath Falls, posted to KBC 10/30/15. "Mrs. Hill stated in her letter that "we" negotiated the settlement agreement because "we" realized it was best for "our farms and our communities." What about the rest of the communities? What about the Upper Klamath Basin? What about Sprague River, Chiloquin, Beatty, BIy and Bonanza? How about the rest of the ranchers and farmers trying to make a living?"

'Game' was rigged to limit participants, H&N letter to the editor by Werner Reschke, Malin 10/25/15, "the game has been rigged by the “stakeholders” (tribes, environmentalists, fishermen, some in agriculture) so they become the winners. The rest of us are the losers: more national debt passed to our children and increased power rates from the destruction of four hydropower dams — the cheapest power source in Pacific Power’s portfolio..."

1 Corinthians 1:18-19, "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to not the understanding of the prudent," sent by Frank Tallerico 10/25/15.

It's really about taking private property through administrative fiat, by Oregon Senator Doug Whitsett, District 28, 10/22/15 Newsletter. "Regardless of media accusations and name calling, it appears that (Klamath County Commissioner) Tom Mallams has remained within his statutory rights..."
NOTE by Klamath County Commissioner Tom Mallams, "The other additional piece of this puzzle is the relationship between the administrative rule that ties ground water and surface together, and the settlement agreements. The administrative rule is by it's own definition, 'consistent with the settlement agreements.' Also, with lack of legislation moving the settlement agreements forward, this very administrative rule, by its own language goes away. In other words, OWRD is turning well water off under authority of an administrative rule which is dependent on legislation that has not happened, and likely never will. Another government example of "THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE!"

Lithium and the Experiment over Oregon, by From the Trenches, posted to KBC 10/23/15. "For three years, up until July 2015 the small towns on the south coast of Oregon: Reedsport, Bandon, Brookings as well as the Klamath Basin and Rogue Valley’s small towns are being used to test lithium and psychoactive compounds on a regular schedule and have been used for such for the last three years. Soil samples are taken and social interviews carried out, and one can assume, medical records which are now computerized, are monitored." HERE for KBC Geoengineering page

Big Government seeks to replace Private Retirement Industry, by Oregon State Senator Doug Whitsett, posted to KBC 10/20/15

Walden to push Basin water pact; Congressman to sponsor new version of agreement, H&N 10/15/15. "It will likely include the removal of the four dams that sit on the Klamath River and have been a source of dispute among parties who have not signed on to the water agreement."

The West's water rights system is working, by Family Farm Alliance Dan Keppen and Patrick O'Toole, Denver Post, and Klamath Herald and News, posted to KBC 10/15/15.

The KBRA is opposed by our local elected representatives.

Keep false hope out of the dam issue, H&N letter to editor by Don Maushardt, Klamath Falls, followed by Dam removal expert (Dennis Lynch): Do it in one year, posted to KBC 10/15/15.

Tom Mallams responds to charges, Klamathnews.net, posted to KBC 10/15/15. "Within the notices, we were allowed 60 days to file a Petition for Judicial Review, which by definition is an "instant stay". Their final notice, dated August 25th, which we received on the 28th, gave us until August 31st to comply...The truly sad part of this is that the H&N knew all these facts while they were claiming my wife & I were "stealing water"from our neighbors..."

Doug Whitsett

Mallams is right in fight with state, by Oregon Senator Doug Whitsett, guest writer for H&N, posted to KBC 10/11/15. "County Commissioner Tom Mallams should be congratulated for his leadership in opposing the Oregon Water Resources Department’s (OWRD) heavy-handed and arguably unauthorized regulation of irrigation wells, by administrative fiat."


Dennis LinthicumKBRA is one more example of a false promise, by Dennis Linthicum, guest writer for H&N, posted to KBC 10/11/15.
"...Dam removal costs alone are near $1 billion.
What are the future basin and river restoration costs? — Unknown
What is the cost for establishing affordable energy options? — Unknown
What are the total costs for financial assistance to property owners, lost jobs and tax revenues? — Unknown
What is the cost for dealing with the release of over 20 million cubic yards of toxic sediment into the Klamath River? — Unknown.."

Mallams: water use allowed during appeal, H&N, guest commentary by Klamath County Commissioner Tom Mallams, posted to KBC 10/5/15. "Recently, a certain reporter accused me of breaking the law and ignoring water shutoff notices. The law allows all water users, including myself, to challenge an incorrect regulation order and prove that my well does not interfere with earlier priority surface water uses. All regulation orders have been “stayed” while I seek judicial review, allowing water use while the court decides my case.I believe in obeying the laws of the land, and no, I am certainly not above the law. I also believe in the right to protest and challenge unjust laws and regulation including unjust administrative rules."

Mallams to run for second term, Commissioner subject of recall effort, H&N, posted to KBC 10/5/15. "Last week Ilo and Melissa Ferroggiaro (owners of Laughing Lotus Farms, a medical marijuana dispensary) filed a recall petition...Daugherty said recall petitions and petitions to overturn the ban on county marijuana sales will be available to sign...(Mallams) noted those needing medical marijuana will still have access to it at shops within the city of Klamath Falls."

Ephesians 5:15-21 - "See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is, do not be drunk with wine, which is dissipation, but filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to on another in the fear of the Lord."

* Valley Forge and Western Montana…by Elaine Willman, Western Ag Reporter, posted to KBC 10/3/15, "I became convinced that the CSKT Compact is a template for federalizing all state waters, implementing communalism and socialism consistent with Agenda 21, and intentionally aligned to spread tribalism as a governing system while eliminating State authority and duty to protect its citizenry."(KBC NOTE: Willman believes Klamath Basin is headed for the same demise as Montana citizens as she has closely watched the federal takeover.)
