Virginia enacts law to protect landowners from predatory land trusts

March 11, 2015

by Bonner Cohen, Ph. D.
CFACT

In a stinging repudiation of the conduct of a Virginia environmental group once viewed as politically invincible, Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) March 10 signed into law bipartisan legislation that — for the first time — provides rural landowners the means with which to defend themselves against bullying by land trusts.

Feds sued for blocking thousands of recreational routes in Plumas National Forest

The victims include all citizen users of public lands — including the disabled

Pacific Legal Foundation
SACRAMENTO, CA;  March 18, 2015: Representing two California counties and a broad coalition of associations and individuals who value public access to national forests, Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF) today sued the federal government for acting to prohibit motorized travel on thousands of roads and trails in Plumas National Forest that have been used for decades for responsible and legally permissible recreational purposes.

Plumas National Forest is a 1,146,000-acre National Forest in the Sierra Nevada, in northern California.  The lawsuit argues that the U.S. Forest Service, a division of the Department of Agriculture, violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), by blocking access to much of Plumas National Forest without a careful, factually specific review of environmental impacts, including consequences for the public.

MoveOn.org Moves Into Sequim and Opposes Transparency and Choice

By Glen Morgan
Freedom Foundation

Posted 9/7/2014

“Panic has set in to the MoveOn.org crowd.  To them, transparency and choice are very threatening.”

An observer at the Aug. 26 Sequim City Council hearing could be forgiven for being confused by what they witnessed.

First, there were competing sign-waving folks outside the meeting venue. Everyone who attended appeared to be focused on the last item on the agenda—the two local initiatives that had qualified to be on the general ballot in November.

The first measure, titled “Proposition 1” would make collective bargaining sessions between the city and any public-sector unions open to the public. The second, Prop 2, would allow Sequim city employees to have the choice of being in the union or not. They could not be fired from their job if they were not in the union. Transparency and choice were clearly frightening concepts to MOVE ON.org, which appealed to its hard-core followers to picket the meeting. Continue reading

WA State Laws on Huckleberries?

Posted on August 28, 2014 9:51 am by Pearl Rains Hewett Comment

WA State Laws On Huckleberries?

Unbelievable, WA STATE DNR has the nerve to pass laws and stick it’s greedy fingers into

your “HUCKLEBERRY PIE PICKIN” enterprise.

When we were kids, 1950-1960 our family used to go out and PICK WILD BLACKBERRIES to earn money.

WOW, I’d work for a half of day, crawling over logs, sweating, scratched up, bee stung and sunburned … to get one gallon of berries.  

We’d go home, get cleaned up and deliver the FRUITS OF OUR LABOR  to a Local Restaurants that wanted to make Wild Blackberry Pie.

FREE ENTERPRISE WAS ENCOURAGED BACK THEN….

BUT,  It was a really hard way for a  kid to earn $1.50 for school clothes.

Federal Judge Lloyd George authorized the BLM to confiscate Bundy’s cattle and the agency dutifully attempted to do so. Continue reading

Opt-out bill hailed as first sign GMA could be eliminated

by Jeff Rhodes
The Olympia Report

Posted 3/17/2014

Property rights advocates are hailing a bill passed overwhelmingly by the Washington State Senate on Tuesday as potentially the first crack in the Growth Management Act dam.

Passed by the Legislature in 1990, the GMA requires state and local governments to manage Washington’s growth by identifying and protecting critical areas and natural resource lands, designating urban growth areas, preparing comprehensive plans and implementing them through capital investments and development regulations.
