This is claptrap. Federal law holds that if rivers that are navigable in fact, they are navigable in law.

I like how she relies on an 1891 listing of navigable rivers for a legal foundation. For that matter, I'd love to know how the Scott and Shasta have "long been held to be non-navigable." By her?

I also need to respond to the "friendly offerings in a collaborative spirit" statement.

There have been no accusations -- just public comment about a bad (and illegal) proposal -- one that's already been accepted by the Board of Supervisors (while the only "green" supervisor was on personal leave).

In other words, it's damned close to becoming official, and when supervisors ask for public comment on bad policy, they shouldn't be surprised to receive it.

Thanks to everyone who took a minute to response. We're making progress, but we're a long ways from winning this one.

If you haven't yet sent an e-mail to the supervisors listed in my original post, please do so -- and tell them that any county policy that limits your legal access to Siskiyou County's streams and rivers is bad policy, period.

Thanks again,
Tom Chandler
