You live in the mountains, and a mountain lion scares you?

Where do these people in Big Bend come from? Getting all a twitter because there’s a mountain lion in the area! For Fuck’s Sake People, We Live In The Wilderness! As much as you would like to make it a little safe city like place, wildlife happens. These people claim to love the land, hug trees, hate loggers, compost their own shit, hate modern conveniences, hate law enforcement, want to live like the caveman did. But they need to be warned by their computer, i-phone, i-pad or whatever the newest communication device is about a wildlife threat. And you should see the whining and wailing online if the internet gets a bit slow. Some even warned to beware of a llama running loose, that walked calmly through my yard today. I am so looking forward to getting out of here, it’s not the same place we moved to 22 years ago.

Burney station to open after 6-year closure

You cannot believe how many panties are in a twist because our area is going to have 24 hour coverage from the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO). It doesn’t mean we will get a deputy down here any quicker, as they hate our little town anyway, but just the thought of more law enforcement has driven the lawless into the vapors. The biggest benefit is the station will be open for normal operations to relieve us from the 120 mile round trip to Redding, cuts it in half. The Fleaheads are mostly moving out because the law has changed for their freeloading lifestyle of raping the land, stealing water and anything else not nailed down and growing “Medical Marijuana” for profit by selling it across state lines. The locals are pissed for most of the same reasons because the Fleaheads were easily manipulated, they thought, but they are the ones that ended up catering to them at the expense of their loved ones, all for the illegal dollar that comes from dealing drugs. Many friendships were damaged beyond repair by the lying, cheating, hard drug use and just plain character change. Needless to say, I welcome the idea of a deputy at least being available between the hours of  3 and 7am. But that’s just me, I like the security of being legal and not having to look over my shoulder. With that said, here’s the short article from The Intermountain News.

By Det. KEITH SHARP
Shasta County Sheriff’s Office
Burney Station
I am guessing most everyone has heard about the
Shasta County Board of Supervisors recent approval to
hire additional employees for the Sheriff’s Office.
I have had people ask me what that will actually mean
for the Intermountain area and its citizens. This article
will address the impact that the additional personnel will
have to the Burney Station and to
its eastern Shasta County residents.
First, the Burney Station will
be open once again during regular
business hours, staffed with 2
Public Safety Service Officers.
This means services that were
once available to the citizens prior
to the closing of the office will
be accessible again, no longer
requiring people to go to Redding
for certain assistance.
Although the courtroom will
remain closed until further notice, the re-opening of the
station will give the Intermountain citizens services that
have been dearly missed for 6 years.
Additionally, 2 deputy positions have been granted to
the Burney Station.
After these positions are filled, patrol operations in
the Intermountain area will return to 24-hour coverage.
Due to recent changes in the law, coupled with
criminal’s knowledge that patrol deputies aren’t on
duty between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m., property crimes have
become rampant.
Having 24-hour patrol coverage will help to prevent
these crimes from happening.
After the 2009 budget cuts, deputies were required
to stay closer to the higher call volume areas to reduce
response times.
The additional deputies will help lower response
times and help the outlying areas see regular patrols in
higher frequency.
Although there has yet to be a specific date set for the
re-opening of the station, the Sheriff’s Office has dedicated
resources to the hiring and training of the personnel
required to get these positions filled.
Once the deputy positions are filled, positions such
as a School Resource Officer and/or a Community
Resource Officer will be re-explored.
In response to the Board of Supervisors approval,
Sheriff Tom Bosenko says, “I am very excited about the
advancements we are making to improve our staffing
levels and get additional support to our deputies on the
streets. My staff and I always have your best interests
in mind and are always working to make improvements where we can.”

Now, just to let you see one piece of shit that came for the Pot Growing, to work for a local grower, and ended up involved in murder after a full day and night of smoking meth, I give you “Bubblegum.”

Are The Good Times Over?

Wow, 22 degrees this morning 74 this afternoon. Looks like this pattern will stick around for awhile with no precip in sight. We’ve been in a historical wet period for the last 500 years and it looks like the good times may be over. We are so screwed.

Drought Stricken California Suddenly Green

Some encouraging news compared to last year. From Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

Heavy rains over the last few weeks have led to a sudden greening of much of California, as revealed in yesterday’s color satellite image compared to exactly 1 year ago (click for full size):

NASA MODIS imagery of central and northern California on Dec. 23 of 2013 and 2014.
Many stations in Northern California have recorded over 20 inches of rain, and Folsom Dam has received a whopping 62 inches of rain this month. Lake Shasta, the largest reservoir in California, has erased almost half of its deficit below its normal level for this time of year.

Merry Christmas
