What do we do with Director James G Barrett now?

To obtain the money needed legally is one one thing. To obtain it behind closed doors is another. My taxes pay for this structure of the SCSD, being honest with the people. Even I know of things that have been done improperly. Why did I not Speak up, when a person states something wrong and is ignored by the Management and Board I use to think whatever, they are going to get away with it anyway. This is why I want my TAX DOLLARS to go to QUILIFIED PEOPLE,that know how to run a company. Not someone that thinks they know. It may cost extra but we will get rid of the buffoonery that we have now! No more band-aides for something tha is broken! As for the poll i say none of the above.At least he is trying too keep the District honest. I don't see anyone else doing that at this time........  (Jan 18, 2008 | post #12)

Restore Not Modify The Salton Sea

It is time to get our government back too the people. Not for Corporations. As we hem and haw, the sun and winds are doing their job in drying up the Sea. We were promised a Clean Salton Sea 30 years ago. Something simple at the time. We have been deceived long enough. By the year 2078, as planned by the SSA, the water ways to get to the Sea will be gone from our shores on both sides. I believe they were added in just to please and comfort our cry. On their map it calls for two brine patches.Only one gets water? Where will all the water come from to marsh the dry exposed land? Dust Bowl just like Owens Lake. E-mail all you know and ask them to help RESTORE NOT MODIFY OUR SALTON SEA. All it takes is your signature(S).We should not be having to do this, but the Government forgot their promise once elected into office.I will carry your voice to them....  (Jan 18, 2008 | post #1)

Thanks for the words. I will try to keep my head about me. I'm not done yet. It ain't over til it's over. I might get carried away from time to time. I am not a Politician, I am though one voice of many. If I rant on then it's because I am Passionate or Obsessed with this project. I wish I knew all the right words but I speak from my heart on this. We put up with this for 30 years too long! We have been patient long enough. If we do not save the water we have now, all ranting and raving will be for not. It will be tough for us all to watch the Salton Sea shrink from the cancer of man by doing nothing. One morning when it's too late we are going to look out our windows, sit on our porches and look at an eye sore. Soon we won't be able to touch the waters edge. I will nave to collect donations to but Blue Dye, to paint the the canvas of what once was. Or maybe I can gather the feelings of others(blue), to change the color. I am hoping that it will never come to this. Just try and launch a boat now to get out to the Sea. All launches in Salton City are useless at this time. They haven't even bothered cleaning them! If you have a yearly Ramp Pass, demand your money back. If you have an idea on how to Restore Our Sea,send it to me. When it gets to that stage we will be prepared to them how simple it is and cheaper it is then their vision. As we speak, their plan is working. Sun(solar)Power,Wi nd Power are doing their work for them. If I could I would protect a hole in in the Dyke where they blocked off a vein for the water needed. Even if just a pin hole. What are their future plans for all our Community Economics. A water-way from our communities will not be enough to strengthen any community. The only surviving Marinas will be at the North-East side of the the Sea, for they will be at the waters edge. Condensed the New and Improved Sea will be crowded. If and when you launch a boat here in Salton City, will there be room for you to enjoy your fun in the sun to the North? Swim lanes, just like bike lanes?Red and Green lights just like entering a Freeway?Alot of questions are in the factor, do they have the answers? The main question is. In 25 years will the water-ways from our shores here, still be a factor then? Hey 30 years ago I was only to be a clean up! Think about it? Well I don't know if this is ranting or raving just feel that in the end we all loose? I will not "SELL OUT" to them. We pay them to listen to us, THE PEOPLE. Speak up now or forever hold your piece. By then it will be too late. I will use my "Star Power" for you, The People and the Future. Wanna Go Fishing, Swimming, Boating.... Got Water?  (Jan 9, 2008 | post #10)

FTG... Only ranting going on is takeing back our Government. Somewhere they lost focus on what they are to do FOR The People and By The People. For those who care it is a simple idea, no fuss no muss.It just made me sad when I talked with people they simply gave up.Some even moveing out of area. Really is hard to understand how a generation that changed the world, are turning their backs.Baffeling, Heart Breaking,Dumb Founding? But, Their is a new Generation in town,much younger than I, that care!Bravo  (Jan 7, 2008 | post #8)

FTG....It seems that a great amount of people want this again. I will see what I can do. Quite a few News Groups are interested also. I will get things set with them and get a date for everyone. I will post the other site every where I can.All that has to be done is click print and mail. I am getting in contact with Sherri N. on this site also. I can't stress enough Thanks to all on getting on board what we all thought was a sunken ship.This one is sailing. Just e-mail everyone you know and have them pass it on. I couldn't do this without you. Your signature is your voice.I hear you loud and clear.If you go to any meetings on this just ask them," Why didn't you hear our voice 30 years ago? At that time it was only a clean up!You Broke it,now you fix it! Now hear our Roar!" This is the only visit I am going to give them. I will not wait for an answer for the will come up with more lies.They can explain why all the failed attempts on paper for the PEOPLE to read for themselves.Do not be surprised if you read more lies.Do not be surprised on who wants our Sea to vanish and why. As you can tell mettings,planning, etc. was a farce from the begining.It was thought to by-pass our Voice and we would accept whatever they stated to us.When we spoke,it went in one ear and out the other. Remember what they did to "Yellow Hair", Custer. Should have listened.  (Jan 6, 2008 | post #6)

Tragic collission near Salton City

I know how hard it is to see ariuond the bridge when you turn into the Red earth truck stop. Caltrans needs to hurry up and get the traffic problem fixed. I am surprised of all the accidents and near misses the job isn't completed yet. Comming back from town sometimes it's a guessing game, are they going to wait or pull out? CALTRANS, complete your mission. It's just a road.How many more must suffer or die?  (Nov 8, 2007 | post #2)

Are You Goin To Vote NOV. 6, 2007 SCSD BOARD ?

My answer to your question. I understand that that you have been censured by the Board.I am aware that an ATTY. is present@ meetings because of your actions. Well good for you!The censure was wrong! The Atty. being present,well that's a bit of overkill. The BOARD did this before then let him go because of the expence.So now, if the ATTY. is worth being there,the way other members better watch out cause this just might backfire on them. Is he worth the money being spent to sit there? Is he just working for the people of SCSD? Or is he working for the ones that brought him in? We are all supposed to be grown adults. Insted, Management and the Board are acting like little kids on a playground and kicking you out of the sand box and won't let you play with their toys. Being as smart as they are it is costing, WE THE PEOPLE,tax dollars.SMART?Than ks for the tax hike it's being well spent! just in case SCSD, I was being SARCASTIC, not complememting!  (Oct 12, 2007 | post #3)
