Photo submitted " oq Please send your legal I  notices here: I l,a typesetting @plumasnews,com Ranchers worry about water transfer Opponents speak out during Samantha P. Hawthorne Staff Writer A lengthy agenda presented during the June 11 Indian Valley Community Services District board meeting contributed to arguments and yelling from both board members and the public. The meeting, which lasted nearly four hours, covered such topics as the resignation of director Judith Yocum; continued public opinion on board recall; water rights and transfer potential; biomass facility update and possibility of solar panel installation. The most heated discussion, however, was regarding the issues surrounding water transfer. The Greenville Town Hall was packed with regular meeting attendees, concerned ranchers and annoyed rate-payers, most of whom had a thing or two to say about the topics covered. Those who did speak out were very adamant that IVCSD had no right to sell water from the Round Valley Reservoir. Mina Admire, vice president of Citizens' for Responsible Government in Indian Valley, presented a slideshow on why the district should not transfer its water to proposed buyer, Montecito Water District. The theme of her presentation was based on concern that the board PUBLIC NOTICES California, and pursuant .to the Notice of Default and Election to Sell thereunder recorded March 14, 2014 as Instrument No 2014-1433 of Official Records of said County, WILL SELL ON 07/23/2014 at 11:00AM At the East entrance to the County Courthouse at 520 Main Street, Quincy, CA.

NEER Recorded on 11/22/2006 as Instrument No. 2006-10337 of Official Records in the Office of the County Recorder of PLUMAS County, might be putting immediate profit potential above the district's long-term health. She presented several questions that should be considered before moving forward: where is the water going; what is the current condition of Indian Valley; will a water transfer put Round Valley at risk; are there neighbors in need; what are the legal barriers and or mandates; and where will the district go from here? One of the main arguments was that MWD is a wealthy district and the only reason it wants the water is to put it in reserves for emergency use. She shared pictures of the area's mansions, plUsh vegetation, manicured landscapes and beaches to illustrate her point. California water attorney Michael Jackson explained that MWD's reservoirs are depleted, which qualifies it to receive emergency water transfers. Since California is facing one of the most severe droughts in history, Admire was concerned that IVCSD did not first offer its water to a neighboring water district. She, as well as other community members were also worried that selling the water could be detrimental if the district were to go into a water crisis itself. Several times Admire asked the board what its financial recovery plan is. IVCSD general manager Jesse Lawson said this is part of it. Gary, Stephanie and Travis Fairbanks took some unofficial measurements to show the reservoir levels. They came up with several different numbers for Indian Valley district meeting projected exposed shoreline, from 13 feet to 24.4 feet. They also noted that current dam levels are two feet below average. Many present also commented on how a transfer might affect the tourist population that frequents the reservoir. She said activities that may be affected include kayaking, fishing, hiking, picnicking and relaxing. Admire also noted that dropping water levels may impact local fauna, including pelicans, osprey, eagles, hawks, bear, deer, raccoons, skunk, squirrels and chipmunks. The group of ranchers present accused the district of going against the Indian Creek Decree, which according to them restricts the sale of water. Jackson said California Water Code 1740 supersedes the 1950 decree. It states, "Any water right determined under a court decree issued pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 2500) of Part 3 shall be transferable pursuant to this chapter and Chapter 10 (commencing with Section 1700). "The court having the appropriate jurisdiction over the decreed rights may enter a supplemental decree modifying any rights involved upon motion of the board or any party with a vested water right." Jackson added that anyone who objects to transfer can file a lawsuit against the district, however they must be able to prove the transfer would be damaging to his or her individual water rights. He said the only persons who have a legal right to complain about the transfer are those with water rights located on Wolf Creek and North Canyon. Lawson pointed out that by definition, a reservoir is used for storage and regulation. He said the last time it was used for municipal purposes was in December 2011. IVCSD general manager Jesse Lawson said he plans on giving a comprehensive presentation of the district's position on water transfer during the next board meeting. "It is my job to present the info, good or bad, to the board. I am giving them information and it is up to them to make the final decision," he said. Lawson said that the process of transferring water is extensive. It involves first proving that the district has water to sell and then finding a buyer - which is where the district is in the process. If they decide to move forward, the district must prove to the buyer and the Department of Water Resources that they are releasing the agreed upon amount of water by installing special equipment. Finally the district must complete a formal proposal and submit it to the DWR for review. The DWR will then make sure the transfer is legal; and determine if it will affect water rights holders. If everything checks out, the DWR will sign off on the transfer, allowing IVCSD to move forward. At this point the IVCSD board is still weighing its options regarding the sale, and no action has been taken. Portola man sentenced to 12 years Dan McDonald Jurors heard testimony Managing Editor from 11 witnesses, including dmcdontd@plumasnews,,com: i ; : i  ,one.of the ictims,. ..... David Scott Hall, 41, of Portola, was sentenced last week to more than 12 years in prison for felony domestic violence convictions. Hall, who was convicted by a jury following a four-day trial that ended May 23, was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Janet Hilde on Thursday, June 26. In addition to 12 years and four months in state prison, Hall was ordered to stay away from his victims for 10 years. "I was very pleased with Judge Hilde's decision to sentence the defendant to the maximum sentence allowed by law," District Attorney David Hollister said. "The defendant s assaults were brutal and violent, leaving the victims with substantial physical and emotional injuries." Hall's sentence stemmed from two separate domestic violence incidents with different victims. The jury found Hall guilty of two counts of domestic violence, one count of false imprisonment and one count of child abuse -- all felonies. The jury also found Hall inflicted great bodily injury during one of the acts of violence. He previously served prison time for a child abuse conviction. Hall was on trial for incidents that occurred in March 2013 and July 2012. He was arrested March 1, 2013, after Plumas County Sheriffs Deputy Andrea Murana responded to the emergency room because of injuries suffered by Hall's girlfriend. The victim reportedly had such extensive facial injuries that she was unrecognizable. An examination revealed a broken bone in her neck as well as facial swelling, a cut over her eye, bite marks on her shoulder and chest, and extensive bruising all over her body. David scott Hall Hall was also on trial for an assault on a different former girlfriehd and her children that happened July 6, 2012. In that case, Hall shoved his girlfriend into a bathtub, knocking her unconscious, and choked her ll-year-old daughter to the point of unconsciousness. The adult victim in the 2012 case was flown in from Pennsylvania to testify. The most recent victim refused to testify. ATTY MICHAEL AND DONAVON BEATTY - OWNERS (530) 283-2035 P.O.
