Bulletin, Kecorcl, Progresswe, Reporter Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014 11B LETTERS, fr om page 9B united by opposition but their agendas are in conflict. (Building a whole new sewer system away from the hot springs may be a good idea but it'll cost millions and isn't feasible now.) Let's hope tempers cool and residents realize that no one feels worse about what happened than the board members and no one will work harder-- in a knowledgeable way -- to rectify things. Eric Lund Greenville We deserve this According to Proposition 218, which now is California Constitutional Law, Article XIII, fees, charges and assessments must be approved by the voters. The law is clear! No tax may be imposed or charged unless the tax is submitted to the electorate and approved, especially when the charge is property related. The charge of $100 to $150 per year assessed by the Department of Forestry is illegal. That is the reason it is called a "FEE," as opposed to a "TAX." The highest rate is $150 per year. So, no voter's approval needed for some fees. The Court imposed a penalty ordering Cal Fire to pay SPI $24 million for corrupt and tainted actions and systematic and pervasive abuse of California rules. It will take 180,000 charges of $150 to pay in order to comply with the court's order. The judge used fairly strong language. The problem is that those people never get fired. They probably get promoted, which is the normal way to kill further discussion of the acts, taunted actions, by our public servants. They probably think that they are in Washington, something like being a senator or congressman. The matter included lawyers, investigators, drawings, pictures and a lot of people performing necessary functions or, in this case, unnecessary functions. It appears appropriate fop the state to conduct an investigation and determine whether the actions were done on purpose or out of pure stupidity. Either way firing is appropriate. One consideration is that I hope the investigation is conducted by persons other then those used by the feds in Fast and Furious, the IRS problem and the Bengazie murders. Well, no matter what happens, you get to pay the retirement. We voted for it and get the government we deserve. Jan Klement Quincy Rich have ruined America Fat cats and "extremely wealthy" listen up! I hear youse guys is buyin' presidents and congressmen. Dumb, man, I mean really dumb. The President said buy Volts -- not votes. Is it any wonder we are in such a mess? From Lincolns and Fords to Volts in only 150 years. See what you rich people have done to America? If you like this America, you can keep it. If you like your Volt, you can keep that too.' If you like your freedom, well Better save your money. The next president is gonna be real pricey. I've seen her action before. Ed Laurie Portola Immigration problem A solid 60 percent of U.S. citizens have been against the present levels of alien influx for decades, but the American majority has been ignored by both Congress and the White House. The U.S. doesn't have a broken immigration system; it has a broken deportation system. Americans are under no moral obligation to admit huge numbers of people who have no right to be here just because Democrats need 30 million new voters and big business wants cheap labor. As for any Republican candidates running for office who support amnesty and continuing unchecked immigration numbers, it matters not whether they or a Democrat is elected. If the country is going to be overrun anyway it matters not who wins a seat on this Titanic. At the current rate of immigration, America won't exist anymore. Barbara MacArthur Chester M. Talia Attorney at Law 257-5199 ann California District 1 Assemblyman Brian Dahle recently announced that he will seek re-election in 2014, planning to build on the early successes of his problem-solving approach in ounces year include the following: --Working with local hospital districts to save rural hospitals from previously enacted budget cuts that would have closed down skilled nursing facilities, i ? passage of AB 744, a i commonsense pilot project to allow more aggressive forest fuel i reduction to protect communities from wasteful and i deadly catastrophic wildfires.
