By Jon Coupal

Cassandra of Greek mythology was blessed with the gift of prophecy and doomed by the curse that no one would ever believe her.

Conservatives in California know just how she felt.

California’s modern day Cassandra's have repeatedly warned about the misuse and diversion of public funds for roads and highways. In no other area have California voters been lied to more frequently and more brazenly than with transportation spending.

Nearly 30 years ago, voters were told that California’s roads, freeways and bridges were crumbling and that spending on transportation was so seriously inadequate that a gas tax increase and other taxes were desperately needed to save California from ruin.

Based on the promises from special interests — in a very well-funded political campaign — in 1990 voters approved in Proposition 111, a 9-cents-a-gallon tax increase combined with a 55 percent increase in truck weight fees.

Demonstrating that not much has changed in three decades, promoters of Prop. 111 trotted out long lists of projects that would be completed with the billions of dollars in new revenue. Advertising focused on the benefits of Proposition 111, without ever mentioning taxes.

Sound familiar?

Fast forward to 2017 with the infamous passage of Senate Bill 1, a massive tax increase of another 12 cents per gallon on gasoline, an additional 20 cents per gallon on diesel fuel and a sharp increase in the cost of vehicle registration.

Passage was secured in the Legislature through a toxic mix of threats and pork.

There was far more political blowback from the 2017 tax hike than politicians were anticipating.

Nervous legislators responded by swearing up and down that, unlike all the broken promises before, this time the money would actually go to roads and highways.

To show they meant it, the Legislature put Proposition 69 on the June 2018 statewide ballot and claimed it would protect those dollars against the type of diversion that had occurred in the past. But it soon became clear that Prop. 69, mythically named the “Transportation Taxes and Fees Lockbox,” was just another smokescreen.

An initiative that would have repealed the gas and vehicle tax hikes, Proposition 6, was defeated in 2018 following a massive political campaign that claimed that without the extra tax money, bridges would be unsafe and people would be killed by poorly maintained infrastructure.

Again, the advertising in opposition to the repeal was highly sophisticated and targeted. Voters in Los Angeles were told that all road projects in the Southland would stop dead in their tracks if Prop. 6 passed. Similar scare tactics were used in San Francisco, Sacramento and the Central Valley.

Once again, a promise in writing to dedicate gas tax dollars for road construction and maintenance was written in disappearing ink.

In September, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order that has redirected gas tax money to fund railway systems and other projects, rather than repairing and upgrading the state’s broken highways and roads. The governor and Caltrans claim that the diversion of funds is justified by the need to do something about climate change.

Upon hearing of the cancellation of projects to widen bottlenecks on Highway 99, Fresno Assemblyman Jim Patterson, one of California’s responsible legislators, said angrily, “Instead of building capacity on our highways to move people and freight, Gov. Newsom is funding his pet rail projects throughout the state.”

Patterson called it a “theft of funds meant to improve our roadways” and warned that it is “a glimpse into the future.”

Cassandra couldn’t have said it better.

“The Central Valley is just the beginning,” Patterson predicted. “Other road projects will likely be next” to be canceled.

Conservative observers in California have, over the last two decades, implored voters not to trust the current political establishment.

Sadly, warnings about corruption, incompetence and misuse of public funds have too often gone unheeded as voters keep electing the same irresponsible politicians. Citizens are now paying the price for their disbelief.

Under the current political regime, Californians are suffering with the worst roads and yet pay the highest transportation taxes.

Cassandra warned of the downfall of Troy. Of course, that’s just a myth, unlike the U-haul trucks you see on the road as Californians flee the state. Those are entirely real.

Yuba County, Ca


On Thursday, October 10th at approximately 11pm, Yuba County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of Challenge where an intruder was reported as being inside the residence of an off duty Yuba County Deputy.  Before Police personnel arrived, the off duty officer shot the intruder with his duty weapon.  The suspect was pronounced deceased on scene at that time.


The California Department of Justice has been requested to assist with the investigation. The investigation in ongoing and further information will be provided once the investigation is completed.

PG&E Continues to Monitor Weather Conditions; No Equipment-Related Fires Reported


Executes Final Wave of Safety Turnoffs in Kern County, Impacting Approximately 4,000 Customers


SAN FRANCISCO — On Thursday morning, October 10, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) reported that improving weather conditions in some parts of the areas affected by the Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) have allowed for safety inspections, repairs and restoration in some areas to begin. Approximately 126,000 customers were restored by 6 a.m. Thursday.

There are still currently approximately 600,000 customers without power as a result of the PSPS event, which began on early Wednesday.




  • There were no reported fires related to PG&E equipment in the PSPS impact zone.
  • As of 6 a.m. Thursday, peak wind gusts — a major factor in the decision to implement a PSPS — have been recorded at 77 mph at Mt. St. Helena West in Sonoma County and 75 mph at Mount Diablo in Contra Costa County since midnight. Both of these areas were de-energized in the PSPS action.
  • The company has received many preliminary reports of vegetation-related damage to its equipment in these areas.
  • A third phase for portions of Kern County is scheduled for late morning Thursday. Due to changing weather forecasts, PG&E now expects this event to impact approximately 4,000 customers. Earlier forecasts predicted impacts to 40,000 customers in this area.
  • Safety inspections, repairs and power restoration will begin in specific areas once a weather “all clear” is given.
  • Customers not impacted by the PSPS may experience power outages due to PG&E equipment damaged during this major event.
  • Resources standing by to support the restoration include more than 6,300 on-the-ground field personnel and 45 helicopters. Crews will conduct visual inspections and will make repairs as necessary if any damage is found.
  • The number of circuit-miles requiring inspection includes nearly 25,000 miles of distribution lines and 2,500 miles of transmission lines, a combined distance measuring longer than a trip around the circumference of the Earth.

“We faced a choice between hardship or safety, and we chose safety. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience and the hardship, but we stand by the decision because the safety of our customers and communities must come first,” said Michael Lewis, Senior Vice President, Electric Operations.


Weather Updates


Dangerous weather conditions are expected to continue in parts of the Sierra Foothills and Bay Area until midday Thursday. Similar conditions in Kern County are beginning late morning Thursday and lasting through midday Friday.


For restoration to begin, the company must inspect its affected equipment to ensure no damage has occurred to its equipment. As of 10 a.m., the company has not issued an “all clear” for the Bay Area. Inspection patrols take place during daytime hours.


  • Caltrans Also Activating Three New Ramp Meters on the Corridor
    PLACER COUNTY — In an effort to relieve congestion and make merging safer for motorists,
    Caltrans announced plans to activate three new ramp meters next week and initiate around-the-
    clock ramp metering on all freeway entrances to southbound State Highway 65 from Lincoln to
    Starting Monday, October 14, the three meters going live are: Northbound Galleria Boulevard to
    southbound Highway 65; southbound Stanford Ranch Road to northbound Highway 65; and
    northbound Industrial Avenue in Lincoln to southbound Highway 65. The meters will have
    expanded hours of operation, which will allow these signals to also manage non-commute
    congestion with on demand metering.
    At the same time, seven other ramp meters on southbound Highway 65 from
    Rocklin to Roseville will expand hours of operation. Traffic metering will take
    place anytime or day during the daytime or nighttime hours when there is
    heavy traffic congestion on the freeway.
    The seven ramp meters affected are:
     Eastbound and westbound Pleasant Grove Boulevard on-ramps to
    southbound Highway 65.
     Eastbound and westbound Blue Oaks Boulevard on-ramps to
    southbound Highway 65.
     Eastbound and westbound Sunset Boulevard on-ramps to southbound
    Highway 65.
    Westbound Whitney Ranch Parkway to southbound Highway 65.
    Currently, six of these ramp meters – except for Whitney Ranch – operate
    from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    Saturdays and Sundays.
    This is the first time Caltrans will operate anytime metering for freeway on-ramps in the greater Sacramento Valley region. To alert motorists of the upcoming changes, the meters will rest on green this week.


Studies have found ramp meters are an effective way to reduce freeway congestion and collisions, improve travel time and make merging onto the freeway safer.





                           Motorists Should Treat Non-Working Signals as All-Way Stops

Marysville, Ca.

Caltrans is preparing for widespread power outages beginning at midnight as PG&E cuts power to reduce the risk of wildfire.

Due to severe wind concerns in Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Yolo and Yuba Counties, PG&E may potentially cut power beginning at midnight Wednesday, October 9 through midday Thursday, October 10.

Motorists are reminded that the California Department of Motor Vehicle Driver Handbook mandates that non-working (dark) and flashing red traffic signals be treated as all-way stops during power outages. Drivers should proceed with caution through intersections and observe right-of-way rules.

Throughout District 3, traffic signals contain battery backups, which typically last 3 to 4 hours before becoming non-operational. Additional measures may be implemented at signals during power outages including generators or stop signs. However, motorists should be prepared for all-way stops at non-lighted signals during power outages.

To illustrate the safest way to navigate an intersection during times with no power, Caltrans Public Affairs developed a Caltrans News Flash, which can be viewed here:

PG&E customers are also encouraged to sign up for electrical outage alerts and review current outage maps via its website. Please note that due to high website traffic the PG&E website may unresponsive. Current updates may be found via Twitter.

Caltrans District 3 maintains more than 4,385 lanes miles of state highway in 11 Sacramento Valley and Northern Sierra counties. The department issues updates about road conditions on Twitter and on Facebook. For real-time traffic information, go to or download the free Caltrans QuickMap app from the App Store or Google Play.


PG&E shut off power to residents of the North State shortly after midnight Wednesday. More shutoffs are expected today. In total, 800,000 customers will be negatively impacted. An estimated 2.5 million Californians will not have electricity.

 Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), who represents Paradise where 85 people died as a result of the Camp Fire and thousands are still displaced, issued the following statement: 

 “PG&E’s massive power shutoff is unacceptable. This policy has to change. PG&E’s decision to protect itself from liability at the expense of hardworking Californians will not be tolerated. This disregards people’s livelihoods. We depend on electricity to live and earn a living.

 “Millions without electricity is what a third world country looks like, not a state that is the 5th largest economy in the world.

 “Schools closed. Government offices closed. Businesses closed.

 “Employees were sent home as businesses had to shut their doors. Some workers are forced to go without pay.

 “Parents scrambled to find babysitters, raced to buy battery-operated lights, and rushed home to prepare their families in anticipation of days of darkness. This is no way to live. We are in the United States of America. Access to electricity is a basic necessity for life.

 “This ham-fisted policy by PG&E appears to be nothing more than a very selfish approach to protecting corporate interests at the expense of customers who cannot shop elsewhere for this vital utility - electricity. This Legislature must rigorously examine whether PG&E is capable of responsibly delivering reliable, safe electricity to its rate-paying customers.”

 roostertales pictureThe Rooster Tails Fishing Club monthly breakfast will be held at the Auburn Elks Lodge at 195 Pine Street in Auburn on Friday, October 18, 2019.  This free event is open to club members, spouses, and non-member guests.  Doors to the Lodge open at 7:00 a.m. to share fresh brewed coffee.  A fantastic $15 wide-selection buffet breakfast is served at 8:00 am, followed at 9:00 am with special guest speaker, Captain Jeff Soo Hoo, who will provide a striped bass seminar. Jeff’s Delta fishing exploits have earned him the reputation as one of the best fishing guides for scoring trophy striped bass.



 Jeff has been fishing the Delta for over 30 years, first with his dad, now with his own kids.  After 20 years of running a family restaurant and fishing on his days off, he decided to follow his calling. With the encouragement and support of his wife and family, he sold the restaurant, got his captain’s license and started Soo Hoo Sportfishing. He loves to share his passion and expertise for fishing stripers. The Delta is an amazing maze of waterways - it is not a simple process of just dropping a line in the water. Knowing when and where to fish is his key to his success. Jeff is excited to be sharing his approach on drifting live bait and spooning Delta Striped Bass with the Rooster Tails and their guests.


Whether you're a serious angler, family, or group that wants a memorable day on the water, he will give you the best fishing experience of your life! You will love fishing on the MoMo, named after his daughter, a 2018 custom built Rogue Coastal 23, designed for fishing - stable, safe and comfortable. He has the skills, equipment, and will guide you to the best stripers at his own top-secret spots.


The 30 year old, 250+ members Rooster Tails Fishing Club of Northern California, Inc. is a non-profit organization that meets the third Friday of each month to educate, entertain, and enhance fishing experience.  Unlike many bass and fly fishing clubs that concentrate on very specific types of fishing, the Rooster Tails Fishing Club provides a balanced mix of fishing techniques presented by fishing experts targeting a variety of fish species on multiple types of waters.

Yuba Sutter Arts is pleased to announce a reprise of last year’s public showing of the cult classic film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Friday, October 18th at 6:30pm at the Burrows Theater.  Doors open at 5:30 and early arrival is highly recommended to ensure tickets will be available. The event is a fundraiser for Tri-County Diversity, an affiliate of Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health.  The suggested donation is $10, and an interactive movie kit is available for $5. The Theater is located at 630 E Street in Marysville.


Rocky Horror Picture ShowThe long success of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which stars actors Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick, has completely redefined the meaning of 'cult film.' Used all too often as a synonym for "interesting flop," the words apply literally to the musical horror comedy, which debuted in 1975 and continues to play nationwide on Fridays and Saturdays at midnight in theatres where it is the object of a cult with its own rituals, vestments and liturgy, all spontaneously created by the film's fans.  As the longest-running film in cinema history, Rocky Horror has grossed hundreds of millions in box office receipts.   Dr. Frank N. FurterJanet WeissBrad MajorsRiff Raff and the rest of one of filmdom's most beloved, enduring and unusual cast of characters are getting ready to celebrate this fun evening at Yuba Sutter Arts.


Before you set off to your Rocky Horror Picture Show screening, dress the part!  Relevant costumes and props include a green lab coat stained with red food coloring, pink latex gloves, a pearl necklace, high heels, wild brown wig, black cape and heavy makeup. So now you’re all attired and you’ve memorized the steps to the Time Warp, here’s what you’ll need to take, what to do with it and when…rice, for the wedding scene, glow sticks for the "Over At The Frankenstein Place" song, toast, when they propose a toast, party favors so you can be one of the Transylvanians, toilet paper for when they unwrap Rocky and playing cards, for the last song. 


“Last year’s screening of the film was a sell out, so we knew we wanted to do it (along with the Time Warp) again,” said David Read, YSA Executive Director.” “This is one of those films that you cannot fully experience or appreciate at home; it requires an audience full of enthusiasts to share it all with,” he added.


Let’s keep the tradition going in Yuba-Sutter so come on out and “Let’s do the Time Warp AGAIN!


Plenty of free street parking is available as well as in the nearby Umpqua Bank and Bank of America parking lots.

On the anniversaries of the Cascade and Camp fires, the Sutter County Museum will hold open houses for the community. Counselors will be on hand for anyone who needs some support. Anniversaries of traumatic events can be very difficult, and many people are still feeling the effects of these devastating fires.


On October 9th (Cascade Fire) and November 8th (Camp Fire), if you need a place to be, please join us for an evening of conversation and reflection. There is no set program, we are just offering a welcoming and supportive safe space for people to congregate. We will keep our doors open until at least 7pm.


Our current temporary exhibit, Simple Objects: An Excavation, is related to the fires. The exhibit is a collaboration between Sacramento artist Stephanie Taylor, who was born in Butte County, and writer Christy Heron-Clark, who was born and raised in Paradise. Together, the pair visited Christy’s two adjacent family homes in Paradise, after the Camp Fire, to find objects that might have survived. While Christy responds to these simple objects with recollections of her treasured childhood, Stephanie ponders each as it exists now, altered and transformed.


The exhibit is an installation of written recollections, photography, drawings, and rescued objects. It tells a story of the intimacy of personal loss and the impact of wildfire on communities. Simple Objects explores the concepts of what we retain when we lose, and how we can move forward with resilience.


Alongside this exhibit, we will be displaying works created by artists in the Yuba-Sutter region in response to the Cascade Fire, the Camp Fire, and other major fires that impacted Northern California in the last few years. Artists represented include: Paul Boehmke, Claire Braz-Valentine, Caitlin Carnegie, Tim Fisher, Joan Goodreau, Sue Kibbee, Amber Palmer, Brandy Bruce Sharp, Sarah Sharp, Alexandria Sprowls, Heather Thornewood, and Rhiana Thornewood.

Whether it is two-wheeled transportation or hitting the road by foot, safety is a two-way street. To help fund the California Highway Patrol’s (CHP) yearlong effort to drive the message home, the Department was awarded the California Pedestrian and Bicyclist Enforcement and Education Project VII grant, which began October 1 and enables officers to conduct enhanced-enforcement patrols and public awareness campaigns.


“Pedestrian and bicyclist safety are a priority for the CHP,” CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley said. “This grant provides us additional resources to enhance the safety of the most vulnerable roadway users.”


Pedestrian and bicycle fatalities account for nearly 28 percent of all traffic-related deaths in California. Approximately one-half of all pedestrian crashes in the state occur at a crosswalk. The CHP reminds motorists that every corner is a crosswalk, whether marked or unmarked.


On October 2, National Walk to School Day, the CHP will focus on locations with high numbers of pedestrian and bicyclist crashes. Officers in plain clothes will work with uniformed officers to monitor crosswalks for motorists and pedestrians who fail to yield the right-of-way or who take unsafe and illegal actions.


School zone enforcement operations will take place throughout the year. To improve pedestrian safety in school bus zones, officers will ride school buses to watch for drivers who fail to stop for flashing red lights. When they spot a driver who has not stopped, they will relay the vehicle description to an officer in the vicinity.


The educational component funds traffic safety rodeos and educational presentations related to safe and courteous traffic safety behavior. The grant also supports safety publications, bicycle helmets, reflective gear, and other safety equipment.


Funding for this program was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety through a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


                                 Certain requirements must be met

 Marysville, Ca.

Survivors of the 2018 Camp Fire in Butte County who relocate to Yuba County may now be able to transfer the base year value of their damaged or destroyed property to the replacement property, according to Yuba County Assessor Stephen Duckels.

 A resolution adopted by the Yuba County Board of Supervisors earlier this year makes such a transfer of base value possible, in instances where there is a Governor-declared disaster.

 “What this means is that, if certain requirements are met, you may be able to transfer the assessed value of your property in Butte County to your property recently purchased in Yuba County and benefit from property tax based on your prior assessed value rather than the market value of the replacement residence,” Duckels said.

 The main requirements that must be met are:

  • The original property was owned and occupied as a principal residence
  • The replacement property is owned and occupied by the same person as a principal residence
  • The market value of the replacement property at the time of purchase is of equal or lesser value than the market value of the original property immediately prior to the disaster
  • The replacement property is purchased or newly constructed within three years, following the date of damage or destruction

 Those who believe their property may qualify for this benefit should contact the Yuba County Assessor’s Office by phone at 749-7820 or visit the Assessor’s Office at the Yuba County Government Center, located at 915 8th Street, Suite 101, in Marysville.

On October 4th at approximately 1:30pm Marysville Police officers responded to the 1100 block of H St for a reported non injury accident.  As officers arrived on scene the victim pointed out the other involved vehicle, a green van, fleeing the scene.  Officers began a short pursuit with the driver of the van.  The driver, later identified as Henry Ramus (30 yrs) from Marysville, exited the van while it was still moving at 10th and I St.  The van collided with another vehicle that was traveling on 10th St and I St.  Ramus began running through backyards attempting to flee officers, who were now chasing him on foot.  A Marysville K-9 apprehended Ramus at 9th and H St, due to Ramus failing to follow officer’s commands. 


Ramus was taken into custody without further incident.  A loaded firearm was later found to be in the van that Ramus was driving. 


After Ramus was cleared at the hospital he was booked for felony evading, felony vandalism, hit and run, resisting arrest, driving on a suspended license and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
