The County is “Hoovering” We had a dog named Hoover. He had a unique approach to dealing with animals that were bigger than he was, deer, bears, larger dogs. He would ignore them, pretend they were not there. If I do not recognize this threat then it it does not exist, and an I do not have to deal with it was his approach to problem solving. The County is Hoovering! It worked for Hoover. I have serious doubts that is will work for the County.

So, the supervisors of days gone by wanted quality people, and the conservatives of yesteryear made it clear they would de-elect anyone who would raise the taxes to pay for the quality, and the TWO TOGETHER agreed to give promises of tomorrow's riches to prospective employees. Do not kid yourselves into thinking you are blameless in this issue. The conservatives of old Wildwood West made the deals happen that plague you today. Where's the DeLorean and Back to the Future when you need them? "Because you're mine, you're Walkering the line." Say Cheese!

Lassen County is debt free, operating under a balanced budget and have established a CalPers trust fund to fund the county's portion of post employment benefits.

I am told that Nate Beason asked a candidate for Assembly to stop telling Nevada County residents that Lassen is debt-free, because the facts about Lassen were making Beason look bad.

Douglas Keachie

There is one less "2 terms are enough" illegal sign out there.

George Rebane

DougK 932pm - are you bragging or lamenting?

Douglas Keachie

Actually I'm looking for clarification. Apparently all political signage has to have at least a website on it. Bulf has not only a paid for but also a approved by on it. Nate's real signs have a sticker that was added that says paid for. The judge against Anderson who's name I can't spell just now just has a website, as does Reed's.

Russ Steele

Some one is tampering with the "2 terms enough" signs on Banner Lava Cap, slicing the sign in half. Taking half and leaving the other half. I have taken a picture of one of the half signs near our house. On Gracie someone took the whole sign.

Douglas Keachie

Are the signs legal, Russ?

Gregory

Freedom of political speech is absolute. If a sign displaying political speech is on private property, it doesn't need to follow any regulation, and only requires the consent of the property owner to remain.

Douglas Keachie

This one was on public property, at a major intersection.

Barry Pruett

DougK: What happened to the sign?

Douglas Keachie

I think it was reposted in front of the sheriff's parking space.

Brad Croul

Doug, since no one claims ownership of the signs, they are effectively litter and you are doing a community service by removing them.

Todd Juvinall

Yard signs are free speech and do not require a disclaimer. Someone from the left thinks otherwise. If they are on public property they are generally removed and stored at Caltrans or county yards. I once found an off-duty CHP swiping my signs from private property and burning them up in his front yard up on Banner Mountain. I was shocked, shocked I say, he was for my opponent!

Douglas Keachie

"Someone from the left thinks otherwise."

but obviously not me. Haven't touched any signs ever on private property, especially not the ones about trespassers, shooting, and survivors, etc.

George Rebane

As an update on the matter at hand, Rick Haffey was just on KNCO rehashing the long way he and Supes have gone to "stabilize" future county pension expenditures. Not a word about dealing with the $119M unfunded liabilities that the county's pensioners are expecting to be paid. Sounds like the re-election machine is serving up another number featuring the Rood Center Rockettes doing the Haffey Sidestep. And no one out there in media land is curious (or astute?) enough to ask him?

Dixon Cruickshank

How many people are in the county to split that 119 up - just curious

Keachie -whatever it takes- Alinsky

you really are an arbuckle on the ass of progress you know

Douglas Keachie

Each person's share, given a population of about 100,000, would be $10 for each one million, or 119 x $10, math is not that difficult, except for those who would describe themselves as arses of progress, which is really a strange thing to do, some new perversion? Count me out.

Brad Croul

Regarding Lassen County, Lassen is home to the High Desert State Prison, California Correctional Center, a Federal Correctional Institution, and Herlong military base, a casino, an Indian Rancheria, power plants, and encompasses 4,720 square miles of land vs. 975 sq. mi. for Nevada County. It is not exactly an apple-apple comparison.

Dixon Cruickshank

Mr Keachie I do find it rather scary that you are a teacher, in more ways than 1.

Someone on here did mention that if they just ignored the issue the current residents of the Rood Center would be gone - I would bet they are hoping that to be the case that they are collecting by then.
