OBVIOUS INCORRECT INFORMATION STILL DISPLAYED ON STATE WATER BOARD WEBSITE.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Strange. Three months now.

An 18 month detailed STATE WATER BOARD investigation ended with an excellent report (actually a September 28, 2017 NOTICE OF VIOLATION regarding Water Rights issued to the LDPCSD/PETE KAMPA) whose information finally set the record straight as to some of the outrageous disinformation this community has been fed for decades by real estate and land development special interests.

These “for profit” interests were focused on SELLING LAND “with the understanding” our independent nonprofit special district community services district would provide water service FAR BEYOND THE PERMITTED PLACE OF USE per Water License 11395 under which the LDPCSD had operated since 1980 LAFCO formation. 

However, as illuminating and detailed as that NOV may have been, crucial information has been consistently misreported on the state website for three months now. Why?

CAUTION: FURTHER SPITBALLING IN PROGRESS!  lol

The assigned investigator (and presumed author) for that Notice of Violation is no longer in that department.  Is there any possibility that some “informal punishment” was carried out for a job well done in ACTUALLY REPORTING THE TRUTH about this festering decades old fraud against the innocent and victim MR WECs of the Lake Don Pedro subdivision? 

Don’t laugh too quickly at the query because such things happen to good people all the time when a subordinate employee upholds their personal integrity and work ethic over that of the politically motivated desires of “tainted supervisors” who simply want to maintain the STATUS QUO – you know?  “Don’t rock a controversial boat”!

WE NOW RETURN TO THE TRADITIONAL SPITBALLING ALREADY IN PROGRESS – lol

Water Right Violations of WL11395 had occurred in both the counties TUOLUMNE and MARIPOSA yet this fact is still incorrectly being reported (Determination)  as STANISLAUS COUNTY and SUTTER COUNTY.  (BELOW CHART, Merced River entries on lines 5 and 9)

“Yes, Grasshopper you are correct ” – the Merced River does not flow through the County of SUTTER and one might reasonably believe the State Water Board would certainly know better”.

What the hell is going on here?

Why conceal such obvious fact?

Wrongfully protecting something else?

How can truth be what is lacked?

COULD IT BE ?????:  The millions of dollars in applied for and provided state and federal grants for water issues to two counties with active WATER RIGHT VIOLATIONS perpetrated by a CSD GM/Treasurer with a 20 year documented HISTORY OF MISREPRESENTATION concerning the authorized POU for Merced River water in the Lake Don Pedro area?

Are grant funded counties technically required to be “in good standing with water law” in order to receive such water related public funds?

How can this current GM/Treasurer and his acquiescing “bobble headed yes-nodding Board of Directors since 2014” be permitted to arrogantly disregard such a clear and easily understandable restriction:

MERCED RIVER WATER SERVICE IS LIMITED TO THE Lake Don Pedro subdivision and golf course area per WL11395?

Then there’s that related water issue of how PETE KAMPA and “his board” planned to circumvent the POU service restriction by greatly increasing the amount of “Alternate source water” available with extremely expensive groundwater wells developed with local, state and federal public funds to even further expand an existing subsidized GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM for all LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTIES.  Annexed properties that KAMPA himself assisted in bringing into the district some 20 years earlier when first employed by the LDPCSD between 1994-1997.

What a mess!

Yet a mess with a direct and clear paper trail to Pete Kampa and his co-conspirators who intentionally violate rules.

Did you know PETE KAMPA has also been a very active director in the very powerful CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION (CSDA) for approximately 20 years and even recently received a GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY AWARD from that “not for profit major lobbyist organization” for his work at the LDPCSD?  Oh, you did huh?  Imagine that.

Something sure seems contradictory with even a cursory examination of the facts.

Without question it is a damn shame so many people purchased land 20 +/- years ago in Lake Don Pedro who were encouraged to believe “cheap water service” would be provided by the LDPCSD in the future regardless if outside the legal service area of the water license under which it had always operated.

Seems every player in this “wrongful water service nightmare conspiracy” receives a definable benefit, except for the one who actually receives an ever increasing perpetual financial liability for as long as they own their Lake Don Pedro subdivision property-

 MR WECs.

YUP INTENTIONALLY CONFUSING! I think…maybe…maybe not. But I think so….for the most part….yeah, probably an intentional act….but then again…a coincidence can sometimes……lol

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hey there!  OK, in the two last posts we took a look at a fairly well prepared LDPCSD Annexation request that LAFCo “conditionally approved” and designated the Lake Don Pedro CSD as the “conducting authority” to proceed with the annexation

“AFTER

proper notice and hearing subject to the following condition of approval:  The Lake Don PEdro Community Services District shall provide water service to all future development within the annexation territory.”

Apparently the terms and conditions of that approval were somehow changed to what was actually produced and presented to the public:

“WHEREAS,  the Local Agency Formation Commission has authorized this Board to approve this annexation without notice and hearing and without an election.”

When I fist discovered this statement of how LAFCO permitted the LDPCSD to conduct annexations without notice or hearing –

(so that the MR WECs of the Lake Don Pedro subdivision – who pay the bills WOULD BE UNAWARE of this major property addition into the district that was outside the legal PLACE OF USE for MERCED RIVER WATER under WL11395 and thus would require an expensive groundwater substitution program for the approved project as well as FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN A LARGER TERRITORY),

PLANNING/LAFCO officials appeared confused about the statement indicating such would not be approved by LAFCO.  (This is similar to the map posted on the LDPCSD website which KAMPA states was produced by LAFCO, but it also was not according to the LAFCO Executive Officer.)

 

I have an idea (scary huh?)  I’m going to try to create a page with some of the important LAFCO – LDPCSD ANNEXATION RESOLUTIONS posted so you viewers can compare them side by side.  Perhaps we’ll be able to update this page as new annexation resolution information is made available at the county site.

OK, if this works, when you select the below link it should open a page with a bunch of RESOLUTION LINKS from both MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO and the LDPCSD.   Now for the FINAL SOI REPORT for the LDPCSD in 1987, it is a PDF file (first page displayed) and viewers can move through the document by using options located at the bottom left hand corner of the page.

Cross your fingers!……

(every time I try something like this ….well, I just hope it works.)

 

 

LAFCO and LDPCSD ANNEXATION RESOLUTIONS

 

ENJOY!  My best to you and yours, Lew

LDPCSD RES 95-4: REQUEST FOR LAFCO APPROVAL or ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF LAFCO APPROVAL?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Let’s see now…..

 

LDPCSD RES 95-4 (May 15th, 1995) correctly identifies the property to be annexed in the first paragraph of the document and references that it be annexed into the LDPCSD according to Resolution 94-3 (June 20, 1994) 11 months earlier.  (I recall reviewing much material including metes and bounds survey, map, and documentation of meeting Environmental issues and proper notification – seemed to be one of the better annexation approvals but the project was abandoned also.)  A reading of this particular resolution is interesting in that it appears to first REQUEST AN ANNEXATION at the beginning of the resolution but then continues as though it had already been approved by LAFCO at the end.

“T Corners Land Limited be annexed to the LDPCSD in accordance with Resolution 94-3?”

WHAT IS RES 94-3?  Let’s take a look – (Please notice there are helpful page numbers!)

OK, any deals with MID (Merced Irrigation District) are postponed for later and when annexed but check this out:

“…shall have the same rights and duties as if said property had been a part of the District upon its original formation…..”??????

Is this annexation now subject to subdivision CC&Rs?  Will it pay annual assessments to the Lake Don Pedro Owners Association?  Be subject to a violations committee notice? etc.   NO.  Then how could it possibly have the same duties as if a subdivision lot legally entitled to Merced River water because it is within the long established boundaries of the residential subdivision which is also the POU under WL11395?

When the district was formed (PER CPUC JANUARY 1981 approval of the transfer of facilities and assets to the new LDPCSD) the State of California clearly identified the SERVICE BOUNDARIES as the SIERRA HIGHLANDS SUBDIVISION which would later become the Lake Don Pedro subdivision.  Heck, that decision even stated the new LDPCSD (and its mandatory customers of the LDP subdivision) would not inherit previous line extension and water agreement deals made, or proposed to be made, between Sierra Highlands and these other outside POU property owners.

It also appears as though the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT (MID) was prepared to obtain water rights with yet another annexation into the LDPCSD.   Why is it that the MID, holder of WL11395, will permit annexations into the LDPCSD service area which their license clearly could not serve without an expensive groundwater substitution program?  Did they know  something was coming?  Seems to me the MID was receiving a VALUABLE WATER RIGHT from the annexed property owner yet passing the “consideration” or payment for that benefit (future water service by the LDPCSD) totally on to the innocent MR WECs of the LDP subdivision by making them financially responsible for developing the “ALTERNATE SOURCE of WATER” necessary for that development.  See what I mean?   MID gets a water license (Counties get to permit and tax the development) owner gets to land develop with expensive groundwater, and the innocent property owners of the subdivision get to pay for the whole deal – forever!

 

BUT WAIT!  The owners of the subdivision would never approve such a thing…..RE-ENTER co-conspirator PETE KAMPA who will use his expertise and political connections to exploit a legitimate State wide emergency drought  to secure state and federal grant money to develop groundwater wells with which to create a massive “alternate source of water” (under guise of assisting the already decades old exploited MR WECs through the drought) for the thousands of acres of LAFCO ANNEXED LANDS he assisted in setting up 20 years ago!   Humm, sweet scam there Mr. Pete you are one piece of work.

All the players in this despicable GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION SCAM receive an obvious benefit while MR WECs of the subdivision are surreptitiously stuck with an ever-increasing perpetual financial liability for as long as they own their Lake Don Pedro  subdivision property.

Oops.  Back to the resolutions.

But what about that other RESOLUTION referenced in 95-4 in the second paragraph?  Remember, the other LAFCO RESOLUTION?   First annexation in accordance with RES 94-4, but then 95-4 also references LAFCO’s March 28 1995, RES 95-1 determinations and approving the proposed annexation to the LDPCSD of territory described in Exhibit A..

So, first 95-4 takes us back 11 months to 94-3 on June 20, 1994 and then again back to March 28 1995 for 95-1 which contains the TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF ANNEXATION APPROVED  by LAFCO, and then (THIS IS THE SURPRISE):

95-4 STATES:

“WHEREAS, the Local Agency Formation Commission has authorized this Board to approve this annexation without notice and hearing and without an election”.

but wait! IF 95-1 states the terms and conditions of annexation approved by LAFCO, shouldn’t we take a peek at that?

ding, ding, ding….our studio audience says  “HELL YES!”

LAFCO RESOLUTION 95-1

OK approving RES 94-1 which is?  (BELOW)

OK, RES 94-1 must be a LAFCO RESOLUTION NAME, but why name it 94-1 if there is no corresponding LDPCSD RES 94-1 REQUEST FOR ANNEXATION?

NOW WE KNOW PROPERTY IS ONLY 20.01 acres, it is located in Tuolumne County, in the LDPCSD SOI, signed by all property owners within territory, [There it is!, LAFCO assigned the name “Annexation No. 94-1 to the Lake Don Pedro Community Services District” – so it was a LAFCO resolution, right? But why 94-1?],

and approves an unattached “Exhibit A” and designates the LDPCSD as “conducting Authority” authorized to

“conduct proceedings for the Annexation

AFTER

proper notice and hearing subject to the following condition of approval:

The Lake Don Pedro Community Services District

shall provide water service

to all future development

within the annexation territory.”

WOW. Talk about a “blank check”!!! Approving only a portion of “territory” but agreeing to all other land as well!

How did such an important term and condition become the District’s RES 95-4 statement:

“WHEREAS, the Local Agency Formation Commission has authorized this Board to approve this annexation without notice and hearing and without an election.”

Annexation was then evidently approved per the resolution and MR WECs, as usual, was again advised squat – other than to just keep paying more for monthly water service charges, rates and fees for the continuing special benefit planned subsidized water service for all LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTIES INTO THE DISTRICT.

I wonder how long it is going to take before all the annexation records are available on the Mariposa County website?  I am really curious about some other annexations.

 

 

My best to you and yours, Lew

TRACKING LDPCSD RESOLUTIONS CAN BE DIFFICULT

Reading Time: 7 minutes

TRACKING LDPCSD RESOLUTIONS CAN BE DIFFICULT

Especially for a “lay person” like me untrained in the intricacies of the annexation process, but here are a few things that made it difficult to follow what appears to be a meandering process fraught with missing paperwork, dead ends, and similar document designations.

For instance, the exact same RESOLUTION IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS regarding “VARIOUS ENTITY ACTIONS” are used by and between two different public agencies, the MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO and its special district creation, the LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT.   RESOLUTIONS with identical names were also not always related or concerned with LDPCSD annexations into the district. The bi-directional nature of these RESOLUTIONS consisted of, 1) Requests, or APPLICATIONS FOR ANNEXATION into the district service boundary the LDPCD sent MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO, and, 2) LAFCO ANNEXATION APPROVALS (often CONDITIONAL upon other events occurring first with instructions on how the LDPCSD should proceed with the annexation), or other related information.

NOT CONDITIONAL APPROVALS AGAIN?

OH KRAPA! 

Not a conditionally approved action again?

(aka, IF “THIS” then “THAT”)  as in,

IF within the Lake Don Pedro Subdivision, property is entitled to Merced River water service per WL11395.

Did we not just learn what apparently happened with a CONDITIONALLY APPROVED WL11395 DIVERSION OF Merced River water by the STATE WATER BOARD for the SOUTH SHORE CLUB (La Ventana) ANNEXATION PROJECT (off Bonds Flat Road between Hwy 59 and HWY 132) which proposed another residential subdivision and golf course complex in 1993?

That the project was abandoned for failing to meet specific STATE CONDITIONS FOR APPROVAL?

And that PETE KAMPA apparently obtained or was privy to a “shape file” of that project (likely while employed and involved with aspects of the project during his first LDPCSD employment tour between 1994-1997) documenting the PROPOSED POU (Place of Use) EXPANSION for MERCED RIVER WATER USE

IF conditions were met and the development approved for construction?

And somehow, that 1993 “shape file” information which ONLY DOCUMENTED A PROPOSED POU BOUNDARY CHANGE (if conditions met), was entered into CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF WATER RESOURCES official records as having been APPROVED in 1993 WITH A POU change – WHICH DID NOT OCCUR?   Yet PETE KAMPA later relied upon that “shape file” to represent a POU change on the OFFICIAL LDPCSD WL11395 POU SERVICE AREA MAP created with a Board approved $35,000 digital mapping project, although the final product map doesn’t even mention or illustrate the legal POU for Merced River water per  WL11395?  Geez – will it ever end?

THE BIG QUESTION:  

HOW DID A FAILED PROPOSAL FOR A POU CHANGE END UP IN OFFICIAL DWR RECORDS AS REPRESENTING AN APPROVAL WHICH WAS APPARENTLY LATER USED FOR A HOST OF ACTIVITIES INCLUDING GRANT APPLICATIONS TO THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR EMERGENCY DROUGHT RELIEF?

Anyway…..

LDPCSD ANNEXATION NUMBERED REQUESTS FOR APPROVAL sent to LAFCO were also sometimes renamed by LAFCO with another system of identification during the approval process which further complicated later tracking within respective agency records (BUT PLEASE REMEMBER – I DO NOT POSSESS ALL THE ANNEXATION RECORDS YET – SO WHO KNOWS HOW THEY MAY EFFECT RECORDS ALREADY OBTAINED?  (ie, Rescinded, modified, replaced, destroyed, etc.)  For example, I read a resolution which rescinded a bunch of LAFCO rules and regulations of the past and replaced them with new policies, so without such information a researcher could mistakenly believe a particular violation had occurred during a certain year, when the rules governing that issue had actually been changed and, therefore, no violation occurred according to the new rules in affect.)

Some LDPCSD RESOLUTIONS are documented as definitely having taken place in LDPCSD Board Meeting Minutes with an approved motion for the Resolution creation and subsequent approval vote by the board of directors, yet the RESOLUTIONS themselves have completely disappeared from LDPCSD records!

Some LDPCSD REQUEST FOR ANNEXATION RESOLUTIONS referred to by LAFCO do not exist.  The exact resolution name may exist but the LDPCSD resolution has nothing to do with annexations – so they are apparently also missing from records – or were simply “replaced” with a “Red Herring (bait to lead a questioning individual “off the trail”) to further obscure the record.

One particular LDPCSD RESOLUTION, 95-2, is apparently used twice as an accepted procedure for two separate property annexations into the LDPCSD.

Often LDPCSD RESOLUTIONS, especially in the 1990s, do not even identify the property to be annexed!

Many LDPCSD RESOLUTIONS also refer to an attached EXHIBIT which is rarely attached to the RESOLUTION DOCUMENT as stated.  (The Resolution will not ID property but refers to EXHIBIT A for specific details…..but no Exhibit A is attached!  Like a “JOKERS WILD” ANNEXATION FORM!)

The below LAFCO RESOLUTION OF ANNEXATION APPROVAL did not clearly identify the property either, except for a few letters of the project name which could be observed on the unnumbered second page of the resolution which had apparently suffered a severe “copy machine error” which distorted important information in this official document.  Whose responsibility to make sure government records are copied and filed properly?  What assurance is there that this particular page was originally contained in this particular document?

<<<<<<<INSERT?>>>>>>>>>

LINE 24 (above):  Maybe it isn’t “Lake Shore Ranch” but “Big Whore Ranch”  or “Pay More Ranch”, etc. ?

lol

Had a little study mishap

A foot high paper avalanche

With no page numbering its all mixed up

Is LDPCSD an annexed Modesto branch?

LOL

 

Seriously though, I had a whole stack of these LDPCSD and LAFCO ANNEXATION RESOLUTIONS on my desk and when walking by accidentally brushed against them and to the floor they went.  What a (*&^%$ mess!   As I was “putting the stack back together” I realized it was impossible without page identification.   Rather like that Pringles commercial and the different clip flavors — “You just created Bar-B-Que spicy PRINGLES!”  or whatever….interchangeable!   Take page one of RES -01, page 3 of RES-04, and page 4 of RES -05 and create a brand new annexation resolution of approval on paper!   Add another unrelated “EXHIBIT A” and any location is a potential annexed property into the LDPCSD!  Not so lol when unscrupulous special interests are concerned. .

CONSIDER:  How many times have I harped on the issue of PETE KAMPA failing to properly notice “SURPRISE” “SANDBAGGED” information interjected into otherwise properly noticed (per Brown Act) information  at monthly meetings or  the concern about the unnumbered pages of official documents or pages in the agenda packet?  These Resolutions fall under the same principle because without clear identifying information as to what PROPERTY IS ACTUALLY BEING CONSIDERED on the face of the application or in an “ATTACHED EXHIBIT A”—-

ANY PROPERTY COULD LATER BE INSERTED

INTO THAT “STREAM OF MEANDERING and APPROVING INFORMATION”.

(Perhaps an “Exhibit A” bar napkin agreement and sketch for  a Mars Annexed Development (MAD) was quietly slipped into the stream so the LDPCSD (MR WECs) will be required to obtain AVAILABLE GOVERNMENT GRANTS for the funding of a Polar Water Thawing Project per MARS RESOLUTION LDPCSD 2038-2xlol)

HEY!  I KNOW…let’s follow one of these LDPCSD RESOLUTIONS and see where it goes – hopefully.  (Of course it may turn out to be a similar exercise as attempting to explain in writing how to tie a boot lace without demonstrating or providing graphical assistance – very difficult.   In fact, I have been using large 2’x4’ pieces of drafting paper in order to layout some of these resolutions to follow their progression as they “hip hop” from “Resolution title to Resolution title” and refer to Resolutions that do not exist and attached exhibits that are not attached.  (Scotch taping legal pad sheets together didn’t work out so well.)

I will tell you this, I believe this RESOLUTION PROCESS and RESULTING MEANDERING PAPER TRAIL was intentionally created to make any future annexation confirmation process difficult. 

Sorry, but I call that pure deceit and this mid 1990s garbage looks similar to the garbage produced since 2014 by Pete Kampa.  What a frigg ‘n coincidence, yeah? I don’t thing so.

READY?  HERE WE GO!  Let’s start with LDPCSD RESOLUTION 95-4.

Prior to jumping right into the meat of LDPCSD RES 95-4, (May 15, 1995 –  oh yeah, reminds me, — and the timing of some of these resolutions is very interesting as well)  viewers should be aware this resolution also happens to be the last one posted on the MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO WEBPAGE, UNDER THE TOP LEFT LINK HEADING:  LAFCO RESOLUTIONS.

 

You can check this out yourself with the below link:

 

INDEX OF LAFCO RESOLUTIONS ON COUNTY WEBSITE

 

At the risk of repetition – (BIG lol, right?)

LDPCSD RES 95-4 is the last resolution posted on the MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO WEBPAGE, under the top left link title:  LAFCO RESOLUTIONS.

“But why would an LDPCSD Resolution be the last and only “outside LAFCO resolution” posted under a heading for LAFCO resolutions only?” an observant and curious viewer might reasonably ask.

“Excellent question”, I would reply just before beginning another torturous blah blah blah long and drawn out explanation like –

I’m not sure but have mentioned this fact to Mariposa County PLANNING/LAFCO officials in one of my “reminders about the public information request” but considering they have ignored these requests while simultaneously failing to offer any explanation as to why the information cannot be furnished – I suspicion County Counsel for one legal reason or another has instructed them not to respond.

(loud crying) whhhaaaaah, waahaaaaah,……the….the…the…they….don’t……li…..li……li…….ike me!……wahaaaaa !

—-boo hoo hoo.hoo……the, eh ehy won’t ta  ta   ta   talk o to or re re re  spond to to to ma ma ma my requessssssssstssss….wahhh….whhaaaaaaaaaa……

That’s OK, I don’t care much for their lack of respect for citizens and failure to obey their own rules either.

ANYWAY, so the first question is, why is the below LAKE DON PEDRO CSD RESOLUTION THE LAST POSTING UNDER LAFCO RESOLUTIONS ON THE MARIPOSA COUNTY WEBSITE?

READ THIS CAREFULLY – ANYTHING “JUMP OUT AT YOU” that just doesn’t seem right?

 

<<<insert>>>>

I am seriously wondering if LDPCSD RES 95-4 (ABOVE) was posted by the County as plausible deniability and suggested evidence as to the identity of the actual responsible parties for what certainly appears to be wrongful activity.  Think about that for a moment. 

What if the County did lay out a conditionally approved annexation procedure – yet LDPCSD officials ignored those preconditions and “JUMPED STRAIGHT TO ANNEXATION” – in addition to previously providing incorrect information in the original application to LAFCO?

When I first saw the statement above in 95-4 I even asked Planning/LAFCO officials about it and they were surprised as well.

Tell you what, I have things outside that I have ignored for days and need to address – why don’t you check out that LAFCO WEBSITE and Resolution page (link above) , and I’ll pick up here on the next post?  I’ve got to get away from this monitor as well my eyes are tired.

My best to you and yours, Lew

I SWEAR! JUST COINCIDENCE! I DID NOT GO BACK IN TIME! (no family member either- lol) :)

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Although there are still many extremely important LDPCSD applications to LAFCO for property annexations into the district, along with the corresponding LAFCO resolutions of approvals missing from the Mariposa County LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission) website for a complete analysis, and my original June 12, 2018 hand written request for information to the Mariposa County Planning Department/LAFCO along with a few followup questioning reminders that have apparently been ignored or denied for some reason, STILL OUTSTANDING, MISSING, OR UNAVAILABLE,  I did discover a LAFCO resolution which appears to address a question I have raised on this website a number of times (what? me repeat myself?  Nawww,  unheard of!  lol).

(ah, hum – clearing throat)

WHY WOULD MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO CONTINUE TO APPROVE ANNEXATION REQUESTS FROM THE LDPCSD WHEN THE LDPCSD COULD NOT LEGALLY PROVIDE THE WATER TO THESE APPROVED LAND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS REQUIRING WATER TO DEVELOP?

Want to hear something “Twilite Zonish” about this Resolution – and others I have recently viewed?

I kid you not, it was like seeing a whole screen full of   “typed gibberish” on the F&*I(NG monitor!

Wait!….Should I be issuing a “SPOILER ALERT” or something?  Am I about to commit the sin of “jumping to the end of the story”?  You know, where someone tells you the end  or moral of a joke or story prior to you hearing the whole thing and thus ruining the surprise?

You know, think I just answered my own questions.  OK, how about……..(must imagine SCI FI music – I made some up, but just can’t afford the hard drive storage space for such, ah…(ah, hum -clearing throat) let’s call them diversions, from the primary topic shall we?)  {music…}

I have been “different” from other human beings as far back as I can remember and without doubt many from this world can attest to this fact.   Although there have been countless theories, clues, and suggestions as to the existence and use of time travel throughout my life in the many places I lived, I was never-the-less strictly prohibited by FAMILY from ever even commenting on the subject much less what others may have believed about me.  I could not acknowledge that such travel was indeed possible or the more important fact that I had routinely participated in such for various purposes required by FAMILY. Most viewers are undoubtedly familiar with the concept of potential and irrevocable harm backward time travel represents to the current time line of events (ie, going back and preventing birth of grandfather) which is why it is so meticulously controlled and regulated by the FTC (Federal Time Commission), STRCB (State Time Resources Control Board) and related local TRAs (Time Regulating Authorities) each with their own particular and draconian styled penalties for violation of respective regulations.   Sorry, I’m rambling and just need to get to the point.  This is difficult for me because I am concerned, well, a bit worried that the next regular Monthly Board of Directors Meeting scheduled for August 20 2018 has been cancelled because the FTC and/or STRCB or some other TRA, has located a document they contend constitutes evidence that I had again time traveled back to 1976 with the specific intent and purpose of “planting” LAFCO RESOLUTION 76-4 in COUNTY PLANNING RECORDS so I could now use it to raise questions regarding all LAFCO ANNEXATION RESOLUTIONS into the LDPCSD!
I know, I know, sounds far-fetched but next month’s meeting has been cancelled without reason and I know for a fact 76-4 exists.  IT WASN’T ME!  I SWEAR!  NO MEMBER OF FAMILY THAT I AM AWARE EITHER!  (But I sure would like to thank all of them)
Although LAFCO RES 76-4 does indeed exist – unless later abolished in one of the MANY RESOLUTIONS I CAN’T SEEM TO GET MY HANDS ON (maybe an investigation by ?….but wait, wouldn’t that be a simple explanation for not meeting the request, you know, “The County of Mariposa cannot furnish records because of an on-going investigation” or something?  You know, respond to the requester like they mattered as a citizen of this country.  “Sorry, but, the files you are seeking are …..{insert excuse}……Sincerely Government agency” , instead of  a non-response?   Nothing? Rather like designating me to a “nonexistent status” devoid of any substance or merit.  So utterly worthless a non-response by a public agency is perfectly acceptable?   Come on, still disappointed I did not fall prey to baited traps that have undoubtedly snared unscrupulous seekers of specific information in the past?  (You know, those poor clueless dumb asses who believe if they could only get their hands on originals and remove certain government records from a file (or IN THE ALTERNATIVE LIKE WITH PETE KAMPA & HIS CO-CONSPIRATORS (and patsies), BY INSERTING FABRICATED DOCUMENTS INTO THE SYSTEM) it would solve all their problems?)  Then again, maybe they can’t use the originals because of incriminating evidence so fabricated resolutions are being recreated for substitution (or obtained from the FILES OF OTHER cooperating agencies) to reconfigure historical files?  Gee, I sure hope not.  Yet, what the hell has Pete Kampa being doing?  EXACTLY THAT!   INTENTIONALLY FABRICATING A GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT TO MISREPRESENT THE TRUTH of a STATE WATER BOARD designated POU for WL11395.   Seems to me, even if a legitimate government investigating entity required particular files the County would just copy and provide sections at a time while  keeping the public access on the site open.  Then again, this being a new system, perhaps the ones missing, just happen to be the last ones to be posted……but shouldn’t they have waited for the entire enchilada meal to be prepared before serving to the public?
Gosh, I’m hungry now.
ANYWAY, I can PROVE BEYOND A SHADOW OF DOUBT I was not responsible for this document!  I did not go back in time and create or produce this document, nor did I instruct or encourage a member of FAMILY to create or produce this resolution.

 

wait….this sounds familiar…. not me, I didn’t do it, someone else, anything I’ve produced or had any hand in producing….COMES FROM THE FILES OF OTHERS……that’s all we know now….a movie?   Musical?  OH YEAH – let’s take

A LITTLE TRIP DOWN

“ALMOST MUSIC” MEMORY LANE

with that

ONCE IN A LIFETIME

NEVER A HIT

WORSE THAN LSD song!

I’ve got to take a break – this is freaking me out.  What if they find other Resolutions suggesting I was responsible for ……….???

🙂

(OK Back to our regularly scheduled posting)

Anyway, here’s LAFCO RES 76-4 which makes the original question even more curious and confusing yeah? (rem?  WHY WOULD MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO CONTINUE TO APPROVE ANNEXATION REQUESTS FROM THE LDPCSD WHEN THE LDPCSD COULD NOT LEGALLY PROVIDE THE WATER TO THESE APPROVED LAND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS REQUIRING WATER TO DEVELOP?)

“SHOT IN THE DARK” THANK YOU MESSAGE –

YOU WERE VERY INSTRUMENTAL IN GETTING TO THE FACTS

(Although no one likes going where they are not welcome)

“Shot in the dark message” to the gentleman in the valley I spoke with a while back regarding this insane water situation here in Lake Don Pedro.  I believe you are an engineer or CAD drafting technician, perhaps both, I honestly do not recall. (I was attempting to find out how much it would cost to have a verifiable professionally produced map of the originally established service area of the LDPCSD based on the existing 11 page metes and bounds LAFCO field survey – (also a LAFCO RESOLUTION – 80-2 I think) since that particular map  HAS NEVER BEEN LOCATED IN 38 YEARS!

The primary thing I DO RECALL AND REMEMBER QUITE CLEARLY ABOUT YOU, although a complete stranger, was your patience, understanding and comforting reassurance that the problem was NOT ME, but rather, a status quo system where truth and logic are often lost in the application of curious government decisions and the ONLY SURE WAY to discover the truth as to what actually happened at the time was to physically go to the jurisdictional office and RESEARCH RECORDS YOURSELF BECAUSE GOVERNMENT WILL NEVER ASSIST IN ILLUMINATING THEIR OWN COMPLICITY IN SUCH APPARENT CONTRADICTIONS OF LAW AND OPERATIVE REGULATIONS.  (Is that why public records concerning this LDPCSD ANNEXATION MESS are unavailable?  Are they being “cleaned”, “sanitized”, “censored”, etc……?????)

Thank you so much KIND SIR!   Your “PEP TALK” was of great assistance during a time of exceptional personal frustration due to the CLEAR FALSE INFORMATION repeatedly presented to the public and other state/federal government agencies by the LDPCSD GM/TREASURER and his multi-year supporting Board of Directors.   I truly believe it is people just like you,

(a fellow citizen willing to listen to another citizen’s complaint of local government corruption, resulting dysfunction and waste of public resources for decades in their home community, who then, based on your own experience in battling such “suspicious or criminal forces”, suggests a proven method in obtaining critical information as to the truth)

who are, and will be, the “grass root heroes” for other patriots to carry on in reclaiming our country and system of justice from those determined to exploit and misuse our FREEDOMS and GRANTED PUBLIC POWER AND AUTHORITY for private special interest economic profit.  Again, thank you sir, if you can, drop me line – I’d enjoy explaining what I’ve found (and in some cases have not.)

OK, WHERE WERE WE?….oh yeah, have never received answer as to why LAFCO continued to annex properties into the LDPCSD water service boundary when the LDPCSD could not legally provide water.   I did, however, find LAFCO RESOLUTION 76-4 WHICH CHANGES

THE PRIOR QUESTION FROM:

WHY WOULD MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO CONTINUE TO APPROVE ANNEXATION REQUESTS FROM THE LDPCSD WHEN THE LDPCSD COULD NOT LEGALLY PROVIDE THE WATER TO THESE APPROVED LAND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS REQUIRING WATER TO DEVELOP?

TO:

Why did MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO even CONSIDER ANNEXATION APPLICATIONS FROM THE LDPCSD IF THEY DID NOT CONFORM TO LAFCO RESOLUTION 76-4 IN DEMONSTRATING adequate water availability in the application?

Guess we’ll just see.

“CALIFORNIA COMPLAINT HOCKEY” – EVER CATCH A GAME IN YOUR CITY, TOWN, – COMMUNITY?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Sure seems sometimes as though regulatory and law enforcement divisions of California government trusted with the jurisdiction, authority and power to protect citizens from intentional government waste, fraud and crimes against the public – actually dedicate more emphasis, time and resources on effectively blocking LEGITIMATE CITIZEN COMPLAINTS than sincerely investigating, identifying and prosecuting offenders in the name of public justice and honest government. (No doubt the far majority of law enforcement officer’s and organizations are indeed honest, have integrity, and fairly represent the interests of citizen’s, but unfortunately, it only takes a few to destroy the hard earned good reputation of all.  I must also realize that “the wheels of justice grind slowly but exceedingly fine” – so although it may appear from the “outside” nothing is happening, correction takes time.  That’s the real bummer of it all.  The crooks know this, in fact, count on it, and can very quickly design and implement an environment (with public funds of course) to pursue their own personal/business objectives and rewards knowing any statutory or legislative enforcement correction will be extremely slow – years down the road – IF even instituted.

GOVERNMENT – CITIZEN “COMPLAINT HOCKEY”?

Citizens of California compromise one team, let’s call it, “CITIZEN COMPLAINT TEAM” and State Government another team we’ll call “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS”.  Every time a citizen team member smacks a legitimate “COMPLIANT PUCK” past the “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS GOALIE” – an investigation by law must be conducted.

The fist line defense of the “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS” is to stop that “COMPLAINT PUCK” from ever getting on the ice and potentially reaching the goal of a legally mandated investigation with the subsequent prosecution of offenders identified in the “CITIZEN COMPLAINT PUCK”.  The “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS” through the years have developed extremely complicated and explicitly defined legal requirements to insure “COMPLAINT PUCKS” meet their explicit attorney generated government specifications and are acceptable by the government for use as an approved “VALID COMPLAINT PUCK” for any proposed game to determine if laws of this State have been violated by individuals or organizations and deserve investigation.

The problem is, the “CITIZEN COMPLAINT TEAM” now must retain an expensive attorney to research and interpret specific government puck requirements to ascertain if the “CITIZEN COMPLAINT PUCK” satisfies established standards prior to any government consideration in scheduling a game.  Since “COMPLAINT PUCK SUFFICIENCY” is determined and regulated solely by government “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS” (who ironically sponsor such games with funds collected by CITIZENS of that state COMPLAINT HOCKEY GAME JURISDICTION), whether or not a “COMPLAINT HOCKEY GAME” materializes is essentially determined by whether or not the “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS” actually desire to schedule a game – evidenced by first accepting the  “CITIZEN COMPLAINT PUCK” submitted for game use.

If a “COMPLAINT HOCKEY GAME” is desired, the government will see to it the PUCK QUALIFIES FOR GAME USE.  Correspondingly, if a “CITIZEN COMPLAINT” proposes a game with which the government DOES NOT WISH TO PARTICIPATE (for one reason or another – including complicity with the underlying basis for the complaint) the game is not scheduled until strict adherence to the “pucking rule” is achieved.    (In other words, specifically identifying the COMPLAINT PUCK’S LEGITIMACY FOR GAME USE per an elaborate approval system which some suggest was designed, and effectively used, to prevent a substantial variety of “complaint hockey” games proposed by angry victim citizens.

                                                    EXAMPLES:

“CITIZEN COMPLAINT TEAM”  SUBMISSION                NEGATIVE RESPONSE BY “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS”

Color of game puck is BLUE.                                                           Incorrect.  Color is Cyan.     NO GAME!

Games will be conducted in light provided by Sun                      Incorrect.   Under light provided by Earth’s closet star.   NO GAME!

Team mascot is a GSD (German Shepherd Dog).                        Incorrect.   Mascot is a canine.  NO GAME!

So in other words,

will government “COMPLAINT DEFENDERS” ever

“GIVE A PUCK?”

to sincere “CITIZEN COMPLAINTS” and demonstrate support for their stated goals of protecting the public through investigation, identification, and prosecution of those who UNDER COLOR OF AUTHORITY AND LAW intentionally violate STATE and FEDERAL LAWS in furtherance of the private economic special interests of others ?

WHO KNOWS?

Here’s something that could conceivably break either way on this particular subject:

2018-8-20 Reg Board Mtg Agenda Cancelled

[Gosh, didn’t like the suggestion of meeting audio being available on the LDPCSD website?  lol]

 

Does it indicate just more “covering of tracks” by Pete Kampa, the LDPCSD Board of Directors, Merced Irrigation District, the Counties of Tuolumne and Mariposa;  the State Water Board; state and federal granting authorities; et al regarding the intentional fabrication of a PLACE OF USE map for MERCED RIVER WATER per WL11395 with a $35,000 Board Approved Kampa Mapping Project and continuation of their obvious intention to further expand a special benefit GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM financed by the innocent MR WECs of the LDP subdivision for private land developers our district has no moral obligation or legal duty to provide water?

<gasp for breath>

Or has some state entity finally decided to

GIVE A PUCK

and start

CONTINUE AN ALREADY COMPLETED EXCELLENT INITIAL INVESTIGATION 

(SWRCB Sep 28, 2017 NOV) that was also an apparent victim of HI-JACKING AND AN ATTEMPTED CLOSURE BY KAMPA OPERATIVES just like our LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT was HI-JACKED by the special interests of OUTSIDE POU LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTY OWNERS pushing further GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION for their land development proposals with even more public funds?

Sure has the earmarks of 40 years of fraud against <MR WECs, yeah?

STROKE OF GENIUS

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

 

 

I fear its quiet unannounced arrival

Have witnessed the effects before

Only minutes after occurrence

That panicked stare and more

A previously well functioning body

Now vessel blockage devastated

With crucial loss of blood and oxygen

In the brain, where my fear has waited.

 

Yup!  Mom is right, why push any potential for such fear becoming a reality by placing myself in situations where my frustration and blood pressure push the tolerance needle into the red zone?

There have been times when so tired and exhausted from the audio/video/posting work (but I’m still trying to meet some ridiculous self imposed “deadline” so I could get outside and do something more enjoyable), but the wrong “start position” for my fingers on the keyboard produced gibberish on the monitor.  Don’t know how to properly describe the length of time, would guess some very small fraction of a second, nanosecond?  Regardless, just a “blink” of connection with that  displayed monitor gibberish and the flash thought of such being a reality.  (You know, fingers in the right position on the keyboard but everything I keep typing is like password codes and gibberish on the screen because something inside scrambled the grey matter?)  Again, only a blink of thought but still a terrifying “what if?”

Of course there are no guarantees in such matters.  Just the opposite could be true, yeah?  Perhaps the computer work and frustration with the LDPCSD has actually prevented and delayed outside work that would have triggered something more than just heatstroke – a classic stroke or heart attack?  Maybe just a broken leg, or something?  Then again maybe some of you out there will be reading about such blah blah blah next year?   Or five or ten years from now?   Maybe much longer if my brain function can be successfully downloaded into some sort of bio-tech contraption?  Yeah, like on Futurama with Beck Hansen, Nixon, etc.  lol  (Bender cracks me up.)  Whatever.  Guess we just do the best we can with what we have and try to “go with the flow”.

Anyway, I am not quitting my STAUNCH OPPOSITION AT ALL, just refocusing time more efficiently in recognition of the fact attending meetings where DISINFORMATION and DECEIT has continued unchecked since 2014 is not healthy.   Video meeting presentations do not seem to have accomplished much to stop the continued hi-jacking of our surface water treatment plant and plans to develop even more expensive groundwater wells to serve the thousands of other acres of LAFCO ANNEXED lands.   sl  0idkljqbwh jkf;slkdk

Still do not understand why all these outside POU property owners do not pool their resources and create some kind of a special benefit zone of water service where they could develop their own groundwater well for such outside POU service.  Use our transmission lines, treatment plant, testing facilities, storage tanks and all that, but completely fund their own ground well and the added costs associated with that “alternate source of water”.   Heck, they could even have their own board which determines what properties are to be annexed into THEIR SPECIAL BENEFIT ZONE OF GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION.  Only difference would be the maintenance, repair and eventual replacement would be funded completely from their own isolated fund.   Every drop that comes out of that ground well would be used to offset the MERCED RIVER WATER leaving the subdivision.  <period>   The LDPCSD could naturally have their own groundwater wells in case of emergency.

(I wonder — if such a special benefit GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION ZONE could ever be developed, if those beneficiaries might be a bit more circumspect and apprehensive about adding other grandiose proposed subdivisions and high water demand developments to their private groundwater substitution POU zone which they had to financially support?  You know, because it’s always easier to gamble with someone else’s money, yeah?)

Anyway, sent the following email to Syndie (and others) today –

____________________________________

I contacted the LDPCSD office by telephone on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 inquiring about the cost of an audio copy of yesterday’s monthly board meeting.  I spoke with Anne who advised you were unsure what the cost would be but would advise me when determined.  Considering our audio recordings are now digital (you have provided meeting copies to me in the past) seems the cost should not be that great.  Regardless, please notify as soon as possible and I will provide payment.   I did not attend yesterday’s meeting but am extremely interested in a couple of particular aspects.

Regarding the digital recordings of our public meetings,

I request that the LDPCSD (like so many other public agencies and organizations already do) post our digital recordings of meetings on the LDPCSD website for customers to review and appreciate on their own schedule just like the digital monthly meeting agenda packets.  No doubt there are many customers who would rather listen to the meeting while doing something else at home rather than having to sit and read snippets of carefully prepared management censored material.

The thousands of MR WECs (Merced River Water Entitled Customers) of the Lake Don Pedro subdivision (both residential and out of area owners all over the world) should not be required to physically attend inconvenient meetings held in the middle of nowhere in Lake Don Pedro every third Monday of each month at 1300hrs just to stay adequately informed about a public agency of which they are mandatory customers due to property ownership in the subdivision. No customer should be required to voluntarily perform countless hours of work every month just to present these meetings on a private website (lakedonpedro.org) when the District has the means to provide such service on its own website.  (Such a service would also guarantee those customers could listen to a meeting without “personal opinions being interjected between portions of recorded meetings. WIN-WIN Lol!)

 

MR WECs are stakeholders with a direct financial interest tied to LDPCSD operations due to the obvious influence water availability has on their subdivision property values in a drought prone region.  They are not speculators looking to turn an easy buck with someone else’s water.  They are already greatly invested in their land, and water.  Current management policies and direction, with obvious director support and/or acquiencese, seems to forget that every single CPUC approved lot in the LDP subdivision has the unequivocal right to water service upon demand at anytime in the future.   Will that water be available for those who are entitled and paid for it since their subdivision property ownership?  I believe it is long overdue that our LDPCSD website is upgraded to include current and pertinent factual information as to how this district has been managed and directed since October 2014.  The mandatory MR WECs of the subdivision who must financially support this special district deserve no less.

Please have this request placed on next month’s agenda for consideration and advise when I can pay for, and pick up, the audio CD of yesterday’s meeting.

 

Thank you, Lew

Sp of a cotozem pf tjos state reqiests gpverm

So if a citizen of this state requests government investigation of what certainly appears to be continuing criminal activity within a local public agency using public funds and resources, the highest law enforcement entity in of State of California (which advertises to have personnel trained for such investigations to protect the public from fraud and waste of public resources) suggests that citizen risk what their grandparents may have provided their parents, what their parents provided them, along with ANYTHING VALUABLE accumulated or been granted in their life for use by private attorneys in an attempt to stop a public agency GM and his acquiescing BOARD from continuing to misrepresent easy to obtain facts that even a child could appreciate?

What the hell is law enforcement supposed to be enforcing?

My friend who had that stoke dropped almost ½ million dollars trying to get the County of Mariposa to obey existing local and state regulations regarding 1991 STATE RESPONSIBILITY AREA FIRE SAFE REGULATIONS REGARDING MINIMUM ROADWAY STANDARDS.  That “Developer convenience road” on their property was constructed 12 years after those FIRE SAFE REGULATIONS were passed.  The road construction violated several public safety regulations specifically enacted by the California Legislature to protect life and property from known and foreseeable harm due to SUBSTANDARD ROADWAYS in designated high fire severity zones.  My friend is gone – and left this world (shortly after her husband who was also my friend) with such worries in their hearts and minds due to greedy developers and real estate interests scamming another way to increase profit margins for themselves with an extremely dangerous road at another’s expense.  Mpme pftjos ,ales semse/    None of this makes sense.

Sometimes it feels like I’ve already had a one – just doesn’t make sense.

My best to you and yours, Lew

SO GOSIP MAP SCAM TUNE (another “almost music” presentation :))

Reading Time: 1

More on all this later – still, it is absolutely amazing at the unnecessary expenditure of time, effort, and public resources for such a simple issue.  The reading, understanding, and obeying of a service area boundary map established in conjunction with detailed written restrictions contained in water license 11395 regarding the PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER.

 

My best to you and yours, Lew

HAPPY FOURTH & BE SAFE!
