Say NO! to the "State of Jefferson"
Siskiyou County right-wing extremists want Lake County to support the
formation of a "State of Jefferson." This new state would instantly
become the most impoverished in the United States, bankrupt at birth.
Geographically isolated, sparsely populated, and economically
disadvantaged, it would be unable to fund public education, highways,
parks, or law enforcement to anything remotely approaching an
acceptable standard. This silly idea offers no advantages to the
residents of Lake County. So it was appalling when on February 17 the
Lake BOS appeared to have voted to support the county's secession from
California to jump onto this sinking ship. Fortunately this ambiguous
action was unambiguously reversed at the March 3 meeting, when the
Board decided to put an advisory vote on the November 2016 ballot.
County Keep It California
campaign is in the early organizational stages. In the meantime, you can
the way, be sure to check out the appalling racist remarks made
by chief spokesperson Mark Baird

JUNE 4-5 -- Sierra Club Yolano Group Snow Mountain hike/car camp. Snow
Mountain is the northern anchor of the newly created Berryessa Snow
Mountain National Monument. As one book describes it, “The trip
to the twin summits of Snow Mountain offers scenery that includes
serene forests of pine and fir, a psychedelic assortment of multihued
rocks, and sweeping vistas of mountains and valleys stretching to the
far horizons.” The 8+ mile roundtrip hike climbing 2200’ to the
twin peaks above 7000’ certainly provides breathtaking views. Due
to the long drive to trailhead, we will drive to Letts Lake Campground
on Saturday, car camp overnight, and climb the mountain from the Summit
Springs trailhead and drive home Sunday. No dogs, rain or snow
cancels. Trip limited to 12 hikers. For logistical details
(food etc.) contact the leader, 530-756-3973 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
