.

so with EXTREMELY LITTLE EFFORT I “discovered” some pretty shocking “old news”.

Yes I admit to being completely ignorant about how the CLINTON FOUNDATION received millions of dollars from this NETHERLAND LOTTERY CONNECTION.   (I never read the book CLINTON CASH.)

Any surprise HILLARY CLINTON was in the Netherlands recently explaining “her take” on why she lost the presidential election?

While reviewing what PETE KAMPA has done here at our LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT  [greatly expanding the PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER BEYOND THE DECADES OLD EXISTING WATER LICENSE 11395 RESTRICTIONS]  I wondered if the statement below might indeed suggest an accepted European political ideology and strategy that has been quietly transplanted across America by those coming here for exploitative purposes….even right here in LAKE DON PEDRO?

“We like encouraging people to take matters into their own hand and create a better world and we also like to encourage entrepreneurship,” Marieke Van Schaik managing director of the Dutch Postcode Lottery told ABC News.

Although certainly “old information” perhaps the below article (and other such reports regarding this NETHERLANDS (and others) influence on American politics and society) does in part explain PETE KAMPA’s ABSOLUTE CONTEMPT AND DISREGARD FOR UNITED STATES LOCAL, STATE and FEDERAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS WHICH TEND TO INTERFERE WITH HIS PERSONAL/BUSINESS/POLITICAL ENTREPRENEURIAL EFFORTS?

<NETHERLAND’S LOTTERY AFFECTING AMERICAN POLITICS?>

 

Recall what KAMPA did at the McCloud CSD with the NESTLE CORPORATION deal (France)?

SOUND FAMILIAR?

I am discovering why links to outside information are no longer operational-

SOMEONE IS CONCEALING TRUTHFUL FACT BY REMOVING THE LINKED INFORMATION!

STOP NESTLE WATERS

PETE KAMPA NOTIFIED BY EMAIL AGENDA PACKET WAS NOT POSTED FOR LAST MEETING – then PRESTO!

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

CURRENT LDPCSD GM/BOARD TREASURER PETE KAMPA

lakedonpedro file photo

 

GOSH, imagine that?  The AGENDA PACKET containing that “revolving questionable Annual Audit” scheduled for Board approval on Monday March 19th, 2018 (approved by the 3 directors present- Board President Danny Johnson, Vice President Dan Hankenmeier, and Director Russel Warren) was not posted on the LDPCSD website for CUSTOMER (or other entity) REVIEW until

AFTER THE MEETING HAD ALREADY TAKEN PLACE!

(Some prior notice before the meeting eh?)

Received a call back from Syndie at the LDPCSD office this morning (Wednesday, 3-21-18 @ 1022hrs) regarding my message left yesterday at lunch about that agenda packet being unavailable on the LDPCSD website PRIOR TO THE MEETING LAST MONDAY.  Syndie advised she had left an email message for Pete Kampa regarding the matter as he is in control of the website.

FINALLY….

A WORKING LINK TO THAT INFORMATION:

<BETTER LATE THAN NEVER eh?>

I wholeheartedly admit to being cynical about “ANYTHING KAMPA” and this only bolsters my opinion he is A TRUE MASTER OF ALL SNEAKY UNDERHANDED BUSINESS TECHNIQUES that undercut and injure the entire concept of “TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT PROCESS” – regardless if he received that CSDA (California Special Districts Association) TRANSPARENCY AWARD OR NOT.

[ANYTHING involving PETE KAMPA, THE MIDPOU, WL11395 and this district’s infrastructure needs to be double – triple checked for accuracy because

A FAT FOX HAS BEEN COUNTING HENS AND EGGS SINCE 2014!]

I wonder, does the CSDA instruct its Board Members on how to implement and utilize such sneaky techniques against the idea of AN INFORMED PUBLIC, or did PETE KAMPA bring such deceitful tricks to the CSDA as a bonus to his 20 year CSDA board position?

SO MANY PECULIARITIES REGARDING PETE KAMPA AND HIS EMPLOYMENT HISTORY.

Why was KAMPA’s Delft University, Netherlands employment history background removed from the internet?  Was it some kind of mistake years ago or does that institution (or political orientation of that country?) have any relation to,  or influence upon our GM/Treasurer’s perspective of local government in America?  Or – how to most effectively obtain millions of dollars in grant funds for a local non profit yet exploit and/or misappropriate the same towards the special interests of private for profit enterprises?   Doesn’t the Oath of Office mention both foreign and domestic enemies of this country?  Perhaps LDPCSD has received a “double whammy” with good old, “finally took the Oath Of Office” PETE KAMPA?

I, _________________________________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will
(Print Name)
support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of
California against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear

You know, instilling a sense of distrust, lack of respect, and contempt for our laws and system of justice (clearly evidenced by Kampa regarding the POU and Merced River water use under WL11395)  is one of the most damaging activities I can possibly imagine an enemy using against our country and citizens.

Why?

Because such disrespect spreads like a cancer when truthful information is suppressed/concealed and special interest propaganda is permitted to “fill the gap and flourish”.  

Holy Krapa-Roni!  Sounds like FAKE NEWS, yeah?

Incorrect maps still displayed on the LDPCSD website despite the STATE WATER BOARD Notice of Violation?

ABSOLUTE refusals by PETE KAMPA and his Board of Directors (for over a year) to simply contact the STATE WATER BOARD for a legitimate POU map?

(Don’t ask or acknowledge COMMON SENSE TRUTH so they can “PLAY DUMB” and later say “GOSH, WE HAD NO IDEA?)

KAMPA using an antiquated 24 year old “shape file” (map) from an abandoned project during his first employment tour with the LDPCSD to expand the Place of Use for Merced River water for LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commision) ANNEXATIONS KAMPA ASSISTED IN CREATING OVER TWENTY YEARS AGO?  (CONTINUED INTENTIONAL MISREPRESENTATION)

A 1995 proposed 900 acre residential subdivision kept a secret until only a few months prior to KAMPA’s unethical appointment to the LDPCSD as GM and being provided access to over 1 million dollars of hard saved LDPCSD cash?  Cash KAMPA used to leverage government grants supposedly for emergency drought use but in actuality used to develop GROUNDWATER WELLS to furnish water to the massive LAFCO ANNEXATIONS that cannot develop without that GROUNDWATER?  (MISAPPROPRIATION OF PUBLIC FUNDS FOR PRIVATE BENEFIT)

Way too many examples of KAMPA’s continuing deceitful tricks for this post!  (Rather like a single pearl, nothing ominous or threatening about one little pearl, but string a bunch of these little “pearl deceits” together on the thin wire of consistent misrepresentation and together they make an effective garrote to public knowledge and control of their own COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT!)

KAMPA & KOMPANY have been working 24/7 since October 2014 for such nefarious behind the scene deals with public funds.   Seriously, what chance do average citizens have in fighting such an organized conspiratorial criminal element (utilizing many other third party services as well)  that is supported with, and protected by, misused public resources and revenue?

Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office refused to investigate despite multiple submitted written complaints.

Mariposa County District Attorney refused to investigate despite complaints.

Remember the FOIA (Freedom of Information Request) to the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT regarding the OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE 16 years of MANDATORY COMPLIANCE REPORTING (ACTUALLY DEMANDED BY THE MID), BUT THAT CERTIFIED MAIL REQUEST WAS MYSTERIOUSLY LOST BETWEEN SACRAMENTO AND MERCED?

Then, even when the request was “hand carried” into the MID OFFICE  “THEY” WERE STILL UNSURE WHAT AN OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE REPORT WAS REGARDING THEIR WATER LICENSE 11395?

THEN USPS SUGGESTS USING REGISTERED MAIL NEXT TIME TO BE ABSOLUTELY SURE OF CONFIRMED DELIVERY!

(Registered mail is secured in a special area separate from other mail and anyone handling it is (supposedly) required to sign for the material.  That’s why customers pay those extra charges….to be sure it is delivered correctly AND OBTAINING PROOF OF DELIVERY!)

So what was the next logical step?

Checkout my $21.35 REGISTERED MAIL 75 page WRITTEN COMPLAINT WITH A PAID FOR RETURN RECEIPT (UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE) SENT TO THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE REGARDING ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE LAKE DON PEDRO CSD…..

How many times have we heard variations of

“Your questions raise a number of serious issues, including highly improper perhaps even criminal activities likely involving public service employees THAT SHOULD CERTAINLY BE INVESTIGATED BY PROPER AUTHORITIES, however, to this date OUR DEPARTMENT has not received a single complaint regarding this matter and it would be highly improper for me to comment on any allegation of wrong doing until receiving a legitimate written complaint from the public”.

______________

Take another look at that paid-for return receipt documenting proper delivery

“COMPLETE THIS SECTION ON DELIVERY”

(DO YOU SEE A SIGNATURE, PRINTED NAME, DATE OF DELIVERY, OR EVEN A “RECEIVED STAMP” which would constitute documented evidence for the sender that their material had been properly received as paid for?)

 Perhaps this is a method for participants in “ethically compromised government to project false ignorance” to the crimes they knowingly permit to continue while simultaneously concealing evidence of their existence from the public?

(Don’t forget the motive of also concealing such conspiratorial behavior from “legitimate public service watchdogs” who should be aggressively prosecuting such individuals for betrayal of our democracy.)

My best to you and yours, Lew –

but as far as KAMPA & KOMPANY and other such “DEEP STATE” type activists who use their trusted positions in LOCAL, STATE & FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to force their personal political beliefs and goals on VICTIM CITIZENS of this country……

and despite the fact they likely do not believe in anything but their own selfish perspectives and greed….

I wonder if ANY OF THEM, during those quiet times of contemplated thought about the meaning of life, ever considered the possibility (however slim they might now believe it to be) that they could actually be setting themselves up for an eternity in

?

There goes that blood pressure again!

Perhaps there is more evil than good?

“WE”…… 0048hrs UPDATE: Today’s Meeting Agenda Packet at end of post! later

Reading Time: 7 minutes

WE ……………(the other filthy members of this “DIGITAL KNOW NOTHING BAND”) were discussing the agenda for tomorrow’s Lake Don Pedro CSD Board Meeting (Monday, March 19th, 2018 @ 1300hrs) when a contradictory aspect to current General Manager/Treasurer Pete Kampa’s response to the STATE WATER BOARD September 28th 2017 NOTICE OF WATER RIGHT VIOLATION was brought up.

Please recall Kampa had confirmed at the February board meeting that the same incorrect 24 year old “Shape File” (map) information (KAMPA presented to customers at the October 2017 meeting with that BOARD APPROVED $35,000 mapping project) had indeed been submitted to the STATE WATER BOARD as the official LDPCSD Place of Use (POU) boundary for Merced River Water.

 

KAMPA had also at that time demonstrated his unwavering support for his NEW POU DESIGNATION by removing properties from the traditional monthly OUTSIDE POU COMPLIANCE REPORT in order to reduce the amount of GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION required for State Water License 11395 compliance.

Since every unit of Merced River water that leaves the district in violation of license restrictions MUST BE REPLACED with an equal or greater amount of GROUNDWATER, Kampa attempted to reduce that required amount of GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION since that new groundwater source was stated to be for EMERGENCY DROUGHT RELIEF.

WE HAVE ALWAYS CONTENDED

those extremely expensive GROUNDWATER WELLS designed, developed and maintained with PUBLIC RESOURCES & REVENUE were in fact intended by KAMPA & KOMPANY from the beginning to serve the outside POU compliance demands for the massive LAFCo (Local Agency Formation Commission) annexations into the district that were clearly OUTSIDE THE water license POU and therefore required a groundwater supply to develop.

Adding insult to injury, many of those annexations were approved by LAFCos when the LDPCSD had no GROUNDWATER SUPPLY what-so-ever.  This suggests a hidden agenda of forcing the LDPCSD  (formed by LAFCo as well) into surreptitiously circumventing clear license restrictions by providing a SUBSIDIZED GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION  SERVICE for properties outside the legal POU which our district had no moral obligation or legal duty to serve water – a fact clearly documented in the CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission) transfer of facilities and assets to the new LDPCSD in August 1980.   (A district formation document in LDPCSD records for many years has misrepresented that CPUC service area approval by adding a sentence greatly expanding the area.)

Even a 900 acre proposed subdivision KAMPA work on 20 years earlier (approved in 1995) was kept a secret from the public until only a few months prior to KAMPA’s unethical appointment as GM through a closed recruitment process orchestrated by Board Directors favoring further outside POU expansion.   Kampa was simply returned to finish what he started in the 1990s – obtain the groundwater necessary for private development with public funds.

Kampa’s removal of those annexed properties from that long standing OPOU report was accomplished based on SHAPE FILES (maps) obtained from a conditionally approved project  which was ultimately abandoned for failure to meet State conditions – with this occurring when Kampa was first employed at the LDPCSD back in the mid 1990s.  Did Kampa use those maps for obtaining DWR (Department of Water Resources) grant money?  Why would the DWR have antiquated “shape file” records illustrating an incorrect POU for Merced River water per WL11395?

WE WONDERED what this background discussion had to do with the upcoming meeting on Monday?

From the March 19th, 2018 Agenda Packet:

“State Water Board Violation Notice –The requested map layers have been submitted to the state are currently under review. To date, we have not received response from the State Water Board staff. “        

WE SUGGEST VIEWERS READ THE BELOW 180 SPIN BY KAMPA…

Can you hear and smell the PU?

  • Outside Place of Use and Well Operation–During the month of February, we operated Ranchito Well #2, pumping 9.86-acre feet to the treatment plant. The total consumption by OPU customers was 0.68 acre feet. For reporting purposes, we are including all parcels previously included in the OPU report, plus the parcels we have recently unidentified as likely outside the POU, but not previously included in monthly reports.  Using this method of reporting, until the state provides an POU boundary decision, we will be reporting the potential maximum number of properties that the state could determine as located outside the POU.

(GRAMMAR ASIDE –  Can viewers hear/smell what WE mean?

we are including all parcels previously included in the OPU report, plus the parcels we have recently unidentified as likely outside the POU, but not previously included in monthly reports.”

Can’t you hear the screeching tires of our LDPCSD clunker as KAMPA power skids them through a quick about face turn and heads off in the opposite direction?  Can’t you smell the burning rubber tires?

(Guess who pays for the resulting damage to this LDPCSD IMAGINARY VEHICLE? – representing the course this CSD has been pursuing since KAMPA became the driver in 2014?)

“WE”?

Dear LORD!  I am SICK AND TIRED OF THE YEARS OF THIS MISLEADING “WE” KRAPA!

WE THIS…. WE THAT…. WE BELIEVE……, when in actuality it is PETE KAMPA THIS, PETE KAMPA THAT……PETE KAMPA BELIEVES…..

(Thus this CONTINUING “WE” spoof of the DKNB! 

LOL!

There are no other Digital KNOW NOTHING Band members!

Just ME ME ME ME – off key again huh?   Lol)

In this current KAMPA “WE EXAMPLE” the “WE” is substituted for the STATE WATER BOARD which investigated this CONTINUING KAMPA POU MISREPRESENTATION and determined the POU boundaries indeed appeared contradictory and requested clarification from GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA.

The KAMPA “WE” has done JACK SHIT in reporting the truth of this POU matter – much less acknowledging his own duplicitous activities of intentionally misrepresenting essential facts for over twenty years! 

#2 

Why OPU instead of the TRADITIONAL OPOU?

Agreed, much of Kampa’s work might best be summarized with a “PU” abbreviation – (PU as in stinky krapa), but more importantly this is just another illustration of Pete’s penchant for intentionally confusing subjects and issues as camouflage for his behind the scene garbage.  Something he has done for over twenty years regarding the LDPCSD and permitted MERCED RIVER WATER USE.

After all, how is “PLACE OF USE” abbreviated in legitimate State water agency documents?

POU !

So naturally our professional manager uses “OPU”.

Same as on the LDPCSD website where viewers must download the POU information for review rather than having it simply posted like KAMPA has done for his

BULLSHIT MAPS

WHICH CONTINUE TO REPRESENT INCORRECT BOUNDARY INFORMATION

as well as

“AREAS RESERVING WATER FOR FUTURE USE”

to the public!

WE-CU4?-UR

And it’s not so lol PU PETE.

Actually, the OPOU title change to OPU may have been suggested by the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT after I requested POU COMPLIANCE INFORMATION through a FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT request (Certified mail lost between Sacramento and Merced) that the MID had been receiving monthly for about 16 years until KAMPA returned and quickly halted the report.

Even when “hand carried in” MID claimed to be unsure of the information I was requesting!  Heck, KAMPA later stated he wasn’t even aware of such compliance reporting to MID the WATER LICENSE HOLDER WHO HAD ORIGINALLY DEMANDED THE REPORTS IN THE FIRST PLACE!

  Oh please!

WE BELIEVE IT PRETTY OBVIOUS that the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT, PETE KAMPA and the LDPCSD Board of Directors have worked together for some time to conceal this information from the public.

#3

HEAR & SMELL?

KAMPA has steadfastly pursued his own personal/business SPECIAL INTERESTS in developing annexed land within the LDPCSD.  (Kampa personally advocated the annexation of approximately a thousand acres in 1997.)   Kampa has supported and defended his devious activities with professed managerial education, experience and professionalism.   Do not forget he even recently received a GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY AWARD from the CSDA (California Special Districts Association) where he has been an active board member for approximately 20 years.  Some coincidence, huh?  No doubt the CSDA is extremely proud of their ACCOMPLISHED SPECIAL DISTRICT REPRESENTATIVE who can really get things done.  Apparently the CSDA is not concerned with the lack of ethical standards of their board members either.

Yes a cocksure Pete Kampa resurrected and began pushing a twenty plus year conspiratorial annexation development plan with a cooperative board (NOTE:  OUR statement does not include recently appointed Director Nellie Sperry or prior director Jim Sult) signing off on all things KAMPA.  Even the locations where further dry wells were drilled; the purchase of a nearby property with a questionable ground well, and other activities came right out of that 20 year old OPOU “playbook” development plan.

Only recently has the board displayed some questioning of “all things Kampa”.

But what has changed?

That appears to be a relatively simple question to answer:

It is one thing to essentially tell LDPCSD customers who ask legitimate pertinent questions at meetings to piss off – but quite another when the STATE OF CALIFORNIA asks those same questions!

_________________________________________________________________

ALSO FROM THE MONDAY AGENDA PACKET:

“Incorrect Government Code Section Used on 2-21-18 agenda – We received a public comment at the February board meeting regarding the California Government Code section (citation) used on the Closed Session agenda.   Management has confirmed that Code Section 54956.95 was incorrectly used, which should have been Code Section 54954.5”  

Nice try— but that INCORRECT CODE SECTION has been used multiple times for different CLOSED SESSION MEETINGS regarding a GM EVALUATION despite a prior question as to the code’s correctness being ignored.

SO WE WONDER: 

Was this truly the wrong Code Section for a NUMBER OF GM Evaluations supposedly held in CLOSED SESSION?

(Recall Board President Danny Johnson stated there had never been a GM evaluation in the past according to policy.) 

Or –

Was the correct code section for AN INCORRECTLY TITLED GM EVALUATION repeatedly used to obscure CLOSED SESSIONS where financial matters involving law suits and potential district losses have been discussed, perhaps even acted upon outside the public view?

In other words, were these multiple CLOSED SESSION MEETINGS actually dealing with district liabilities and/or potential losses by law suit as the CODE SECTION STATES due to PETE KAMPA activities which the board/legal counsel did not want reported to the general public at this point – so they just called it an “evaluation”?

What documents were copied and distributed by Board President Danny Johnson during that one meeting closed to the public where PETE KAMPA was SUPPOSEDLY directed to write his own evaluation of accomplishments at the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD?  That could have been done in open session, yeah?

Heck, WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CONTRIBUTE TO SUCH A “FORMAL EVALUATION”!

 WE have had enough for now.

OUR best to you and yours, Lew  

OH YEAH….

TOO FAR AGAIN?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

I tossed and turned a bit last night.

Did yesterday’s DKNB (Digital Know Nothing Band) SPOOF go too far in my continued expression of frustration and disappointment with the special interest activities of duplicitous public officials and their contracted professional General Manager who have clearly pursued private land development special interests with public resources?   Evidence clearly supports the accusation of many years of Merced River Water Entitled Customer (MR WEC) betrayal.

Believe it or not I actually toned DKNB down considerably in a number of areas, for example, the original video staging of that bathroom scene also included Nestles Quik lightly sprinkled around the inside of the toilet bowl trying to simulate years of rust stains (NEGLECT) but it turned out too gross looking and could have easily been interpreted as something far more disturbing than rust!  The snipped corner of a gallon zip lock plastic bag full of water made an excellent bladder but after posting realized I failed to provide a plausible reason for that “wild shot” extinguishing the candle flame on the tank.  (Could have been as simple as a sneeze, guzzle of beer, dropping something, reading an unattached GM report, etc.)

I was advised many of the images flashed by too quickly to fully appreciate what was being displayed.  Yes that’s true, but I have always believed (perhaps mistakenly) if someone were interested in the material they could pause the presentation to inspect more closely.  Guess it depends on the device being used.

Frankly, I have NEVER BEEN SATISFIED with ANY of these “presentations” but the lack of time (skill, talent, ability, blah, blah, blah) dictates I do the best I can then just “throw them out there” in hopes a few of the intended points are “caught”.

Some of it was pretty straight forward.

 

You know, I have held on to that video of the coals in the fire for some time because I could always see something that seemed fitting – a simplistic view of

HELL. 

Rather like looking at large billowy passing cumulus clouds on a bright blue sky day – I can usually see and/or imagine something else in that passing vapor.

Can you see what resembles a human skull and horizontal distorted face in the image below?

 

How about now?

 

 

GEEZ! 

NO WONDER I TOSSED AND TURNED LAST NIGHT!

My attempted music composition is another  source of constant disappointment – one can only go so far without the requisite skill, talent and/or training.  DKNB was likely just one more in a series of  amateurish “viewer tortures” highlighted with unaccomplished, worn out elementary harmonica and guitar riffs, various keyboard sound effects and simplistic lyrics.

OK.   So what?

There doesn’t seem to be a waiting list for legitimate investigators or news reporters – much less professional musicians and/or videographers to document and expose this four decades old LDPCSD FRAUD.

BOARD APPROVED $35,000 MAPPING PROJECT USED BY CURRENT GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA TO 

REPEATEDLY PRESENT

KNOWN FALSE INFORMATION TO THE PUBLIC

AND STATE WATER BOARD!

A fraud, incidentally, which simultaneously undermined the greatest property sales variable (QUALITY WATER) for our massive two county semi-regulated COMMUNITY INTEREST DEVELOPMENT (the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision) situated in the rugged, fractured rock, drought prone western Sierra Nevada foothills.

But then again, was this “loss” of the greatest property selling point for our subdivision property only incidental to the CSD FRAUD or …… a diabolically designed and essential sacrificial part of this “FOOTHILL WATER EMPIRE SCAM” in order to establish the initial “LEGAL RIGHT” to Merced River water so as to eventually facilitate its exploitation throughout the undeveloped rural areas of both counties while the thousands of oblivious MR WECs property owners of the Lake Don Pedro subdivision picked up the escalating costs?

Look at the historical record.

Follow the money.

What the “HELL” do you think?

What is happening here in LAKE DON PEDRO is an excellent example of what has been wrong in this entire country for a very long time regarding PUBLIC SERVICE FAILURES – a complete lack of accountability by those who work together to intentionally violate the law (CONSPIRACY) to utilize PUBLIC RESOURCES (tax dollars) for special interest PRIVATE BENEFIT/PROFIT while holding the “average citizen” to a much higher standard for far less serious transgressions of law.

And who ends up paying for all this deceit?

DKNB (again)

Reading Time: 3 minutes

DKNB 

  (again)

This term looks like it could be on a stock market display yeah?

“DKNB had climbed one and a quarter at today’s closing bell”.

Perhaps representative of the file naming process where vowels are dropped to reduce the descriptive title length, ie,  “fraud 2014-2018” becomes, FRD 2014-2018; “theft” becomes THFT; “that no-good lying bastard becomes” THTNGDLNGBSTRD, etc.?

However, “Members of this DKNB” is a quality neutral assertion of fact without indication of potential desirability for inclusion in the group – absent the context in which it was used.  For example,

“Members of this DKNB”, which was formed through the mutual efforts of various churches in the area, attributed their community success to the cooperation between……” would likely be perceived as a good thing with which to be involved, whereas,

“Members of this DKNB” were quickly surrounded by SWAT personnel and the area closed to traffic”, probably not so good – and might indeed suggest using a different route home.

Obviously when the words forming DKNB are revealed it certainly appears derogatory and dismissive  yet this interpretation fails to appreciate the environment giving birth to the spontaneous shorthand.   So basically, blah, blah, blah … — …      🙂

QUICK REPORT ON THE Wednesday, FEBRUARY 21st, 2018 Special Meeting of the LDPCSD Board of Directors

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Hello!  I have a bunch of stuff to do but wanted to pass on some of the important particulars of yesterday’s meeting….

Three meeting attendees: two customers and the LDPCSD Auditor.  Another packed board room.

The Chief Plant Operator Randy Gilgo was absent.

Full board (one a little late).

I read Wes Barton’s letter into the record during public comment (posted yesterday) and followed with mine below (yeah, I know, blah, blah, blah …)

“Oath Sworn Directors have a duty to this District to abide by CALIFORNIA STATE LAW in the performance of their elected/appointed positions.  Contrary to this duty, directors have rarely asked PERTINENT often OBVIOUS – COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS regarding the special interest direction GM/TREASURER PETE KAMPA and his limited liability management company has pushed this public agency.  The board’s dereliction of duty began in October 2014 with the failure to perform a routine employment background check prior to KAMPA (and company) being appointed as GM/TREASURER and provided access to over one million dollars saved after near bankruptcy.  Despite the total destruction of the LDPCSD Admin Office in February 2012, even a simple “in house” review of existing records would have clearly revealed KAMPA’s many PAST MISREPRESENTATIONS of the Place of Use issue when first employed here between 1993-1997 when very busy pushing LAFCO annexations into this district.  The Board’s failure to “represent the interests of the MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS OF THE LDP SUBDIVISION” have not only continued but have escalated in severity.   Even after many public meeting requests spanning over a year for the Board and/or GM to simply contact the STATE WATER BOARD and obtain the OFFICIAL PLACE OF USE MAP FOR MERCED RIVER WATER, directors rejected those COMMON SENSE REQUESTS choosing instead to continue following the district management direction established by Kampa.   This board has consistently approved the use of District resources for Kampa to continue attempts at completing what he started 20 years earlier with the many LAFCO ANNEXATIONS that could not develop without an ALTERNATE SOURCE – OF GROUNDWATER PRODUCTION.  Even a 900 acre proposed residential subdivision right across the road here was quietly approved in 1995 during Kampa’s first tour but actively kept a secret from the public until only a few months prior to Kampa’s unethical return in 2014.  Even today KAMPA once again requests the board to approve an extremely suspicious annual audit WITHOUT EVEN READING IT which has already been the subject of multiple corrective revisions for several months.  Unanimous board decisions mean little when dedicated to violating both the trust of customers and the law. You should all be ashamed, with the noted exception of newcomer Director Mrs. Sperry.”

AUDIT PRESENTATION – HOW ABOUT SOME “UP FRONT” SURPRISINGLY GOOD NEWS FOR A CHANGE?

The Board  DID NOT “BLINDLY” accept GM/TREASURER KAMPA’s suggested motion of approving the audit without reading the material!  (That suggested approval motion by KAMPA is not only outrageous but quite revealing as to another of his traditional methods of operation.) CONTROLLER’S  REPORT – additional information from prior years due to a new system being used by Controller.   During a JOURNAL ENTRY ADJUSTMENT discussion Kampa interrupted to explain a possible explanation for project discrepancies that were apparently identified in the audit that he meant to address the year before.

I asked about the significance of unsigned certificates in the agenda packet regarding assurance of sufficient funds to operate for the next six months – Kampa stated they only had to be signed quarterly and were just routinely included with the other material.  (Still think they would look better signed –or left out completely.)

The audit material will be sent to customers receiving electronic packet information (have you – you know what?) and will also be posted on the LDPCSD website.

Another pleasant surprise…..Kampa’s suggested motion of including WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COVERAGE FOR VOLUNTEERS WORKING FOR THE DISTRICT ALSO DID NOT PASS.  (KAMPA admitted there have been no such volunteers as of yet nor were any expected.)

I have been told that some time back there were volunteers working on a Financial Committee and assisting the district with financial matters – but not performing maintenance tasks.  I made a comment that such a plan was once again “putting the cart before the horse” and could easily result in much higher costs if volunteer “accidents” were to occur.

EDUCATING DIRECTORS

Regarding training for directors by the Special District Leadership Academy in Seaside, (an associate organization of the CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION which Kampa has been an active board member for approximately 20 years, I confirmed my support for educating directors – however, questioned what good such training would actually be IF STATE LAW could not be followed by directors or the GM?   Think about that for a moment….

PETE KAMPA is a “professional “ SPECIAL DISTRICT MANAGER AND OWNER OF KAMPACS, aka, KAMPA COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS (a SPECIAL DISTRICT MANAGEMENT LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY) ……  was previously employed at the LDPCSD between 1993-1997 working extensively on annexing much more property into the LDPCSD service area – whose land development projects would be dependent upon a GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM THAT DID NOT  EXIST YET.

Kampa has also been a board member on one of the most (if not the most) powerful and influential “not for profit” water lobbying organizations in the State of California for about 20 years – yet this “professional” explains to state regulatory agencies that there has been confusion for many years regarding the PLACE OF USE MAP for MERCED RIVER WATER per WL11395?

Additionally, consider that MR KAMPA was also apparently unable to read and comprehend the clear restrictive terms cited in that license which the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD has used since formation in 1980 to provide water to customers.

But wait…..Didn’t PETE KAMPA recently receive a TRANSPARENCY AWARD from a BIG NOT FOR PROFIT WATER ORGANIZATION?

So I wonder….

what good is specialized education without the personal and/or

business integrity to properly use it for the public’s benefit?

THE BIG ISSUE:  Although GM KAMPA refused to discuss aspects of the POU VIOLATION in his digital map presentation it was never-the-less confirmed that he has indeed sent that SAME INCORRECT DISTRICT POU BOUNDARIES TO THE STATE WATER BOARD IN RESPONSE TO THEIR SEPTEMBER 28th, 2017 NOTICE OF VIOLATION REGARDING POU RESTRICTIONS.

I am still amazed that directors have difficultly answering simple questions like:

DID YOU READ THE NOTICE OF VIOLATION?  (Board President Danny Johnson said he “scanned it”.

DID YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE NOV CLEARLY DETAILED WHAT THE OFFICIAL POU WAS?

HAVE YOU LOOKED AT THE JUNE 1977 MAP ON THE WALL, WHICH ALTHOUGH ILLUSTRATING INCORRECT INFORMATION REGARDING “RESERVED WATER” FOR NUMEROUS LAFCO ANNEXATIONS, DID IN FACT CORRECTLY ILLUSTRATE THE LDP SUBDIVISION AS THE LEGAL POU – again, according to the STATE NOTICE OF VIOLATION?

(NOTE: That incorrect “reserved water” illustration on the June 1977 map also included the 1995 LAFCO approved 900 acre “slumbering subdivision” Kampa has actively kept a secret from the public since his 2014 return.   Incorrect maps are still being displayed on the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD website despite the contradicting factual information contained in the September 2017 STATE WATER BOARD NOV.)

Another closed session under GOVT CODE 54956.95  for PUBLIC EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION  (I asked for clarification of this Government Code Section as it appears to deal with district liability loss from potential law suits – President Johnson made a note of the request stating it would be addressed at the next meeting.)

 

REPORT OUT FROM CLOSED SESSION:

California Code, Government Code – GOV § 54956.95

(a) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prevent a joint powers agency formed pursuant to Article 1 (commencing with Section 6500 ) of Chapter 5 of Division 7 of Title 1, for purposes of insurance pooling, or a local agency member of the joint powers agency, from holding a closed session to discuss a claim for the payment of tort liability losses, public liability losses, or workers’ compensation liability incurred by the joint powers agency or a local agency member of the joint powers agency.

(b) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prevent the Local Agency Self-Insurance Authority formed pursuant to Chapter 5.5 (commencing with Section 6599.01 ) of Division 7 of Title 1, or a local agency member of the authority, from holding a closed session to discuss a claim for the payment of tort liability losses, public liability losses, or workers’ compensation liability incurred by the authority or a local agency member of the authority.

(c)  Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect Section 54956.9 with respect to any other local agency.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

ahhhhh   HAIL!

 

Just had a little bit of hail!  Naturally now that I’ve picked up all the tools it will likely clear up requiring them to be hauled back out for “good weather” work– but had I left them out….well you know – lol

My best to you and yours, Lew

Note from Wes Barton concerning the LDP CSD meeting Feb 21, 2018

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I am sorry I will be missing the meeting, this may bring my absents over ½ dozen since 2006-2007.

It is Necessary, however. 

I am going to comment on your “audit” agenda item 5b, only.  If ever I’ve seen a pure “Kampa-ism”, this

Is It.  “I’ll put the check in the mail after you cash it”; “trust me”!     Sorry Pete, I for one do not trust you!

The difference between me and the folks you often “snooker” is I do understand you and your “model”

Of “talk and paper and talk and paper and talk and etc.”

 

 

[WES BARTON/lakedonpedro.file photo]

I have also studied business and practiced good Business; I know right from wrong and maybe.  I must say I have learned, from you,  how you take an honest

But weak organization, use its ignorance to con government and “crony” players to benefit you and said players.

Leaving the weak organization as an even weaker organization that fears leaving your bosom for you have exploited their weaknesses and destroyed any confidence that may have brought them to this organization with desire to serve the community.  Pete, you are something else!

Just glancing at the financial info you are providing this month shows a discrepancy must exist between the CSD periodic records and a proper audit any professional level accountant might prepare.  After the fourth Year of auditing an organization to now ask for 10 years of past records is near unbelievable, except here, by

Our “auditor”.    Ask your auditor if he is under investigation for audits of 2015, 2016 for questionable reports.  I’ve told you earlier, State Auditor has referred this CSD to the State’s local high-risk audit team, too.  It took a long time for the State to look at CSD’s water rule, boundaries  but they finally did.  Your accounting and

Financial controls structures are probably in “deep do-do” too.  Pete, knowing that there is not a person in the walls of CSD that can properly read financials, he is offering all an out by sticking their heads in the sand (or another way of saying it is to sign off on the audit before reading and you won’t see the audit again).

Note: I’ll try to keep it alive, however, until it passes the “stink test”; Nellie, I don’t know your background.   Hope I didn’t insult you with my comments; I do know the others.

I pray that the Board will remember Pete’s character  when they review his fairy tale presentation in the closed Meeting today, too.

 

PS Syndie, please give Nellie a copy, thanks

SPECIAL LDPCSD BOD MEETING, Wednesday, FEBRUARY 21st, 2018 @ 1300hrs

Reading Time: 4 minutes

EXCERPTS FROM THE FEB 21 2018 PACKET,

THEN MIGHT I SUGGEST MUNCHING THROUGH THE ENTIRE ENCHILADA BELOW? lol

COVER LETTER TO ELECTRONIC AGENDA PACKET

(Ask for yours yet?  They might make nice souvenirs?)

AGENDA PACKET HIGHLIGHTS CURIOUS ACTIVITY

Page 1:  

Agenda Item 5.b. (more below regarding this highly suspicious proposal)

Kampa proposes ACCEPTING “LATE AUDIT REPORT” WITHOUT ANY ADEQUATE REVIEW? 

Typical Kampa method of operation – QUICK!  HURRY!  TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!

Approve without a semblance of reasonable attention! 

That’s what got us into this KAMPA KOMPANY KRAP!

 

 

Page 7:  

39%

TREATED WATER LOSS FOR JANUARY 2018

NATURALLY NO OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE REPORT AGAIN

who knows what the raw water  loss between McClure and treatment plant might be?

Page 13

Yet another unsigned certification of adequate revenue for next six months?

Page 23

 WILL BOARD ACCEPT KAMPA’S RIDICULOUS PROPOSED MOTION?

“I MOVE TO ACCEPT THE 2016/2017 ANNUAL AUDIT”

 WITHOUT READING OR STUDYING THE MATERIAL FOR ACCURACY?

 

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$   START IMPORTANT BACK TRACK 411   $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$  

RECALL THE LAST AUDITOR’S VISIT WITH THE WRONG FINANCIAL INFORMATION ALREADY PREPARED AND FORMALLY BOUND FOR BOARD “SNAP” APPROVAL?

SAID THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE CORRECTIONS FOR A LATER APPROVAL – YET THE MOTION ON THE MATTER MADE NO MENTION OF THE NECESSARY CORRECTIVE CHANGES TO BE MADE FOR IT TO BE CORRECT?

I AM NOT POSITIVE, BUT BELIEVE THERE WERE TWO OTHER  OCCASIONS FOR SUCH NECESSARY AUDIT CHANGES SO THIS WOULD BE THE THIRD TIME.

AND WHAT DOES PETE KAMPA NOW PROPOSE IN THIS RESOLUTION?  

FOR THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO ONCE AGAIN IGNORE THEIR FIDUCIARY DUTY TO THIS DISTRICT AND BLINDLY TAKE PETE KAMPA’S WORD THAT THE NUMBERS ARE CORRECT AND NECESSARY CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE TO PRODUCE AN ACCURATE AUDIT? 

 

Seems to me common sense would dictate a responsible review of this very important financial information prior to approval –

ESPECIALLY AFTER MULTIPLE FAILED ATTEMPTS TO APPROVE IT WITH MISTAKES!

 OLD POST WITH A VIDEO OF THE “KAMPA MOTION OF AUDIT APPROVAL” (WITHOUT MENTION OF THE CORRECTIONS TO BE MADE) AND WES BARTON’S COMMENTS ON RELATED FINANCIAL MATTERS:

LINK BELOW

There he (WES BARTON) Goes Again! and Thank You!

LINK TO VIDEO OF KAMPA AUDIT MOTION WITH POST:

<<<VIDEO of motion with original POSTING  >>>

 $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$  END IMPORTANT BACK TRACK 411 – RETURN TO FEB 21 2018   $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$  

Page 26

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION COVERAGE FOR DIRECTORS and

ALL PERSONS PERFORMING VOLUNTARY SERVICES

(Wonder if the 3-4 hard core meeting CUSTOMER ATTENDEES might qualify as DISTRICT VOLUNTEERS FOR COVERAGE?  lol)

 

Future WORKERS’ COMPENSATION for medical/psychological/psychiatric assistance due to the stress and discomfort involved in running a CSD the KAMPA KOMPANY WAY? 

(aka, cheating and exploiting the far majority of customers may be easy for some of these directors but the “getting caught” part might be a bit uncomfortable.)

Perhaps ADDITIONAL INSURANCE COVERAGE while wining and dining with KAMPA’S CSDA ASSOCIATES ON THESE PROPOSED “EDUCATIONAL JAUNTS”?

Page 29:  PRESENTATION OF COMPLETED DIGITAL “REPRESENTATION” of infrastructure, boundaries and related data  (Recall one of the reasons KAMPA’s $35,000 DIGITAL MAPPING PROJECT WAS DESIRABLE?  

Because it would be so easy to make paper copies for distribution – right?

JUST ANOTHER KAMPA MEETING “SAND BAGGING”

Why no paper copies of these KAMPA INFLUENCED MAPS (based on highly suspicious 24+ year old “shape file” information from an abandoned project when KAMPA was employed here between 1993-1997) in the agenda packet so CUSTOMERS COULD REVIEW THESE “DIGITAL REPRESENTATIONS” PRIOR TO THE WEDNESDAY MEETING?  

Kampa is apparently still pushing the infrastructure constructed for LAFCo annexed properties (and others?) that are OUTSIDE THE WATER LICENSE PLACE OF USE according to the STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

Alright then. There it is.  Still a little hungry?

Below is the whole greasy meal!

My best to you and yours, Lew

MEISU

Reading Time: 2 minutes

MEISU

Guess we are all “broken records” to one extent or another when passionate about someone or a particular subject, issue, cause, etc…  A friend gently reminded me once again that I often invoke examples of things younger viewers may not appreciate due to my advancing age and their lack of experience with the activities I grew up with and reference  ….ah, ok – lol.

“Broken record”… those old flat vinyl grooved analog recordings utilizing a needle to transmit the sound through the “record player” or “turn table” to the amplifier, then out through the speakers (simplistic explanation).  Old time records if not handled carefully could get scratched causing that “stereotypic” (cute play huh?) repeating “click” and scratchy sound as the needle (traveling in the spinning groove) hit the damaged surface of the record.  Sometimes if the damage was severe enough, the needle would get stuck repeating the same snippet of music over, and over, and over, and over, and over,  …..

JUST LIKE ME AND THIS MERCED RIVER WATER PLACE OF USE STUFF!

   Lol 

True, Pete Kampa has also been a “broken record” on the subject of OUTSIDE POU use under WATER LICENSE 11395 for a much longer time (over 20 years) and for CLEARLY DIFFERENT MOTIVES, yet I don’t believe that is the most important distinction which defines our  adversarial- and repetitive “broken record” perspectives.

The way I see it is this – (you knew it was coming right?)   there is absolutely nothing wrong with repeating something you believe in (with heart AND mind) in a sincere attempt to influence others into appreciating your perspective and gathering necessary support for related activities.  However, if the repeated information being used is not truthful or worse yet, intentionally designed and masterfully used to misrepresent the truth to deceive others into a position of detriment or loss, well, that is not devotion or passion but simple propaganda – or repeated information designed to influence others for various nefarious purposes benefiting the one purveying the untruths, and/or the interests of those hidden behind the scenes that the “untruthful agent”  represents.

Simply put, any “deal” designed, dependent upon and sustained through untruths is likely not in the best interest of those being actively deceived.

Certainly not a rocket science sort of revelation, and as semi-recent cartoon character Homer Simpson might exclaim,

“Duh!”

My best to you and yours, Lew
