ONE STOP, PROPOSITION 63 FUNDS
HELD UP FOR NINE YEARS
In 2004, California voters approved Proposition 63 which generated funds to improve mental health services for the un-served and underserved.
In 2009, there was an amendment to the Welfare and Institutions Code (Section 5891 and 5892), Mental Health Services Act directing improvements to mental health facilities
Lassen County received $788,500 from this (restricted) fund to improve the three One-Stops.
At least that's what they told the State of California and the people of Lassen County
According to the Lassen County,as of 11/30/17, Lassen County MHSA fund balance is $635,126.20.
Herlong Fort Sage One Stop
The Fort Sage One-Stop in Herlong has an interesting past. Under former/recalled Supervisor Jack Hanson, this facility received a new roof and various repairs and benefits under the Lassen County Local Re-use Authority. The LCLRA was created when the Army gave Lassen County the township of Herlong (435 acres) and the Sierra Army Depot's Amedee parcels (3,000 acres). When the LCLRA was dissolved, no more funds were available to pay the mounting bills at the Fort Sage One-Stop. Lassen County eventually included the Fort Sage One-Stop in the "give-away" of this Army land to HSP Resources (Hal Hayes, Larry Smith and Steve Pezzullo) illegally.
The Fort Sage One-Stop had to eventually be returned to Lassen County. Lassen County again, had the responsibility of maintaining this building. Lassen County, ignoring Bieber and Westwood One-Stops, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on the Herlong One-Stop.
Lassen County's initial use of the Proposition 63 funds was to replace the HVAC ($102,701.68) at Herlong's Fort Sage One-Stop. These funds could only be used for mental health capital facilities improvements
Beiber Big Valley One Stop
On March 18, 2013, the Lassen County Supervisors & CAO Richard Egan created the illusion of remodeling the Bieber Big Valley One-Stop. Lassen County spent $68,886.25 (Prop 63 funds) on "plans" (NST Engineering, Semingson Architects) that they never, ever intended to use.
At the November 17, 2015, the Board of Supervisors meeting (Agenda H-1), plans were presented, to the Board, to purchase a triple wide mobile building that could have been installed within 3 months. Public bids came in and the winning bid was $184,094.60. This was rejected
From March 18, 2013 to October 26, 2017, the Board of Supervisors had spent $68,886.25 on this lie.
The Board of Supervisors tabled this issue never to return to any Agenda.
Westwood One Stop
WESTWOOD GETS ZERO, ZILCH, $0.00
Lassen County Supervisors issued a Request for Proposal, on October 17, 2017 for remodel work at the Westwood One-Stop. The bids were received on November 9, 2017. The low bid was $297,393. This was more than a fair bid for the work the County required. The County paid out $1,881.46 for this phony effort
ALL BIDS WERE REJECTED BY THIS BOARD
ALL FIVE SUPERVISORS TABLED ONE-STOP ISSUES UNTIL 2018......what a surprise
Kan We Help will be there!

Supervisor Tom Hammond
A court in chaos,
Kan We Help members attended all (except Juvenile cases) Lassen County Court cases from August 28, 2017 to December 8, 2017. The results were astonishing and shocking.
Judge Tony Mallery was sued for Abuse of Power. Judge Tony Mallery lost this case, on February 9, 2017.The taxpayers paid out a $184,830.99 settlement.
The Lassen County Superior Court was crippled when the Presiding Judge Michelle Verderosa resigned on May 8, 2017 and is no longer even a practicing attorney. Governor Brown selected the replacement for Judge Michelle Verderosa today. The official announcement will be made on or around December 22.
What was stunningly notable was the frustrations by the Visiting Judges. Some commented during open sessions of court of the "shabby" presentations of cases by the Deputy District Attorney's. Some stating that they have never, ever seen a court in such disarray. One Judge commented that it was "unfair" to have to endure such chaos.
1. Cases were dismissed, by Visiting Judges, for the District Attorney failing to file timely motions
2. Cases were dismissed, by Visiting Judges, for the District Attorney failing to present or even subpoena witnesses
3. Cases were dismissed, by Visiting Judges, for the District Attorney failing to provide the Court with any evidence.
4. Cases were dismissed, by Visiting Judges, for the District Attorney failing to provide competent management of
5. Cases were dismissed, by Visiting Judges, for the District Attorney failing to be able to proceed.
One Visiting Judge commented that coming to Lassen County was like riding a merry-go-round and complained that the Officers of the Court played a game of "catch me if you can".
One case, a Deputy District Attorney left the Court in mid-sentence and never returned ?
A few Visiting Judges displayed outrage at the lack of discipline by Officers of the Court (attorneys)
Most Visiting Judges expressed concern for the condition of case files; missing documents, errors in case indexes
One Judge proclaimed that she was glad it was Friday and that she didn't plan on returning
This Court has become a
Defense Attorney and Public Defenders heaven
An eye opening 15 weeks
How has owning an assault rifle with a 100 hundred bullet clip made your life better?

Trump endorses the Alabama pedophile for the Senate
This shouldn't surprise anyone since Trump boasted, on the Howard Stern show, that he went into the dressing room of a teenage pageant while they were dressing.

Tax Cut for the rich & the Trump family
taking $1.441 trillion dollars from the US Treasury
The tax increases, in this Bill, are directed at the Middle Class and Poor
Republicans state they will now have the leverage next year to go after Social Security and Medicare.
This Bill will make it financially impossible, in 2019, for 13 million Americans to afford health insurance
Trump drained the swamp and welcomed them to Washington DC
Lassen County Government:
The Lassen County Auditor states that no money ($21,000) has been transferred to the new Fund 153 (alleged Fund for a $25,000,000 Grant)
The Lassen County CAO states that money ($21,000) was transferred to Fund 153. The CAO can transfer money at will and no one, including the Supervisors will ever know
take a look
Hurting Americans with this tragic tax bill for the rich.......IS just another photo op for Trump
Shutting the United States government down
No one should be able to shut our government
RepubliKlans have done it once, and
they will try and do it again...........
THIS IS TREASON
CONFIRMED: TRUMP IS A RACIST, BIGOT AND......CLASSLESS MORON
Trump held a ceremony, in the Oval Office, and placed the podium in front of his Andrew Jackson portrait to honor 3 Navajo "US Marine" Code talkers. The Code Talkers started in 1940 with the Chippewa & Oneida Nations. The US Marines recruited 29 Code Talkers in 1942 and the program was so successful that over 400 were recruited during WWII. The Code was never broken
Andrew Jackson was known to say "A good Indian, is a dead Indian. Jackson's goal, as President, was to annihilate the Native American Indians. In 1838 Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act and then proceeded to kill.
President Jackson is Trumps favorite President
TRUMP INTENTIONALLY PLACED THE PODIUM UNDER THE JACKSON PORTRAIT FOR THE NAVAJO CODE TALKERS CEREMONY
TRUMP HAS A LONG HISTORY OF MAKING RACIAL SLURS AND REMARKS AGAINST NATIVE AMERICANS. IN 1993, TRUMP WAS FACING COMPETITION WITH NATIVE AMERICAN CASINOS OPENING AND TOLD CONGRESS THAT "THEY DON'T LOOK LIKE INDIANS TO ME".
Trump was a jerk then and he is just an old jerk now
Lassen County Supervisors

Lassen County is a welfare county
Do Poor People in Lassen County
Kan We Help exposed the Lassen County Supervisors attempting to remove all funding for the three One-Stops (Herlong, Bieber, Westwood) in their 2017/2018 Budget. The One-Stops funding was eventually re-instated.
Lassen County was awarded $788,500 in Grant money and designated this "restricted" money to upgrading the three One-Stops These On-Stops service the disadvantaged in Lassen County. The Herlong One-Stop was remodeled with Capital Outlay funding and then the County gave it away for $172.00 in the Herlong sale to HSP Resources. HSP Resources returned the property because they did not want to maintain the building and also there were restrictions on the building that prohibited the County from selling it. It is estimated that over $300,000 was spent on Herlong One-Stops remodel
The State Proposition 63 (2009) money has been wasted over the last 8 years and no upgrades of any kind have been done. Lassen County does not have any competent staff that can handle maintenance of their buildings and their buildings continue to move toward USELESSNESS.
Lassen County has gone through numerous tepid RFP's pretending to move toward awarding contracts for these remodels. NO CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN AWARDED.
LASSEN COUNTY ONE-STOPS
The latest, November 9, 2017 Westwood Bid, was no different. Even though the three bids came in more than reasonable, NO CONTRACT WAS AWARDED.
Lassen County Board of Supervisors
November 21,2017 Meeting Agenda
Do the people NOT MATTER?
The public has been notified that there would be a meeting on November 21, 2017
New policy, NO. This Board of Supervisors did this for
the July 18, 2017 meeting also
If the public has no access to public information the Supervisors can do anything they want.....

Republicans vote for a $1.5 trillion increase in the debt to pay for the tax cuts for the rich.
NOT ONE DEMOCRAT VOTED FOR THIS
Republican Senator Mitch McConnell claimed, at a press conference, that the House Bill will increase middle class taxpayers taxes by $4,188.

Kan We Help Exposed Lassen County's
Attempt to Devalue Property
in Order to
Scam the State of California
$25,000,000 to develop a vocational center for the Lassen County Jail, but the land must be unencumbered.
IT IS NOT !
NOW THE COUNTY IS IN A PICKLE !
The Lassen County Supervisors, on November 14, 2017, are going to be faced with a rather daunting decision. Do they go ahead and pursue this deception and risk litigation from Western Alliance (Lender of the $4,080,000 ) by devaluing the 23.45 acre collateral (see 2015 parcel map below) to 2.54 acres ?
Richard Egan, CAO, has not, as of this post, notified the Lender in regards to the collateral being devalued............?
The Supervisors placed 22 agenda items in the November 14, 2017 Consent Calendar in which they deny comments from the public. This was placed as G-5 in the Consent Calendar for a reason...so the public could not comment
SUCH A HUGE BROWN ACT VIOLATION
Kan We Help made this presentation on 9/19/17, at the Board meeting , but you will not see a word about it in the Board of Supervisors Minutes or the Lassen County Times. Just the normal suppression in Lassen County
The Lassen County Supervisors took out a Certificate of Participation loan on June 5, 2015 . They used Parcel 1, which is a 23.45 acre parcel that the Juvenile Hall sits on as collateral for the $4,080,000 loan.
Clown like Court procedure
sets Wayne Cramer free
all three agreed.......the Devil made him do it
Between the visiting judge, public defender and district attorney......Wayne Cramer, with an extensive history of violence was released for a week to get his dog out of animal control and then "they" dismissed all charges against him except the "resisting arrest" charge. He was sentenced to 100 days in the County Jail and must return on November 9, 2017 to finish his sentence (which he won't serve)
This is the criminal history of this Westwood man. The numerous complaints from Westwood residents were not considered.
LASSEN COUNTY SHERIFF DEPUTIES RISKED THEIR LIVES TO APPREHEND CRAMER ONLY TO BE INSULTED WITH THE COURT'S ORDERING A FINE OF $542 and 100 days in jail which he will not serve !!!
IT NOW IS STANDARD PROCEDURE, FOR THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY, TO DISMISS SERIOUS CHARGES AND ALLOW CRIMINALS TO GO FREE.
THIS DEFENDANT HAS ADMITTED MENTAL ISSUES BUT STILL WAS RELEASED INTO THE COMMUNITY BY THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY, PUBLIC DEFENDER AND THE JUDGE ON HIS OWN RECOGNIZANCE
Lassen Municipal Utility District has lived in controversy since they tried to raise rates 162% after they lost $8.7 million dollars
According to Lassen County CAO Richard Egan, the LMUD General Manager Doug Smith has not sent Lassen County a Board mandated letter stating that they can financially clean up their Hayden Hill property.
LMUD has now amassed $10,000,000. This is $8,500,000 over what they are required to have in reserve.
LMUD, over the years has been promised pie-in-the-sky million dollar upgrades to LMUD's infrastructure by energy companies. They wined and dined the LMUD Board & coerced LMUD to spend thousands of dollars on "their" studies (which were never released).
...IT WOULD COST LMUD NOTHING?
THE RATEPAYERS HAVE HEARD THAT FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS...
LMUD got nothing, for the dozens of studies they had done for these "energy companies"

Today Senate Republicans pass a Budget (51-49) that increases
the National Deficit by $1.5 trillion dollars after they defeated Rand Paul's Amendment of increasing the Deficit by $2.5 trillion.
The reason: A volley of "pork" Amendments by Republicans
All you "limited" government advocates can kiss your tax cuts GOOD-BYE
by the way, this budget also includes a $1 trillion cut to Medicaid (ACA funding)
and $500,000 million from Medicare (Seniors benefits)

DID LASSEN COUNTY TIMES REPORT MISLEADING INFORMATION or DIDN'T RESEARCH BEFORE THEY PUBLISHED?
Lassen Municipal Utility District's September 26, 2017 Agenda
Lassen County Planning and Building Services confirmed that they never received such a letter confirming that LMUD had the money to clean up Hayden Hill.
Trump surrounds himself with people that want to destabilize the United States government
But why start with hurting the poor. 70% of those benefitting from the Federal subsidies are in states that supported Trump
Is Trumps contempt for Americans so great that he will continue to destabilize our foreign policy (Iran, N.Korea...and our allies?) and domestic policy (American healthcare) ? What about Trump's trampling on the First Amendment? He hates the truth and is moving to a State controlled press. Sound familiar? If it doesn't......look really closely at his boss, Russia's Putin.
The small percentage of people that Trump panders to, the White Nationalists who represent white supremacy and the representation of the Tea Party/Freedom Caucus in Congress that wants to eliminate the federal government cannot be allowed to destroy our democracy. Those that can remember the John Birch Society should be concerned. Those that don't know the history, look it up....we have Google now.....
TRUMP INTENTIONALLY INJECTED UNCERTAINTY INTO THE HEALTH CARE MARKET TO END THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT WHICH GIVES MILLIONS OF AMERICANS HEALTH INSURANCE.
Trump's Press Secretary just released a statement that according to the Justice Department (Jeff Sessions) the Federal Government does not have to continue to pay Federal Subsidies for the poor.
Trumps diabolical plan
If Trump enacts this policy, this will end the Affordable Care Act and health insurance for millions of Americans.
TRUMP HAS DONE NOTHING
in 9 months but
HURT AMERICANS...just because he can
How or who can stop this insane man?
LASSEN COUNTY'S MONEY PIT
There was a real good reason why Bureau of Land Management moved out of 2950 Riverside. Nothing worked
Lassen County purchased this 17,714 square foot building without any inspections. That fact by itself was irresponsible and you have to ask yourself.......WHY?
After spending over $2,500,000 on this property it continues to be a money pit of repairs. The IT company practically lives at the building. The electricians are trying to figure out why the motion lights don't work and the heating and air conditioning is sporadic at best.
Lassen County issued a Notice to Proceed to the Contractor on November 28, 2016 and stated that the project must be completed no later than March 28, 2017. The County signed a Certificate of Substantial Completion on April 3, 2017 . The building was not fully functional but the County moved all four Departments into 2950 Riverside on April 28, 2017 anyway.
The Change Orders were signed on 9/28/2017 , five months after the County departments moved in and the building continues to have major problems. The final (?) payment to Modern Building (contractor for 2950 Riverside) just didn't add up and the County has not responded to explaining the final payment.
Payment #4 April 20, 2017 $409,182.34
Balance $54,840.00 ($48,640 is the retention)
*Payment #5 September 28, 2017 $36,607.21
*8 undated Change Orders, $35,475.95 with 3 contract work deductions, $39,907.49 equals an additional amount owed to the contractor of $4,431.54
The Lassen County's Administrative Officer is moving money around to even make the $300,000 annual payments on the $4,080,000 2015 loan.
The County has sunk over $2,500,000 into this building and the taxpayers need to know about this gross mismanagement
Lassen County Times claims they are a "watch dog" paper
The one thing the Lassen County Times is NOT, is a WATCH DOG PAPER. The greatest complaints that Kan We Help receives is that the Lassen County Times suppresses the facts. They don't investigate or do any follow up on their stories and they omit stories that might offend their "advertisers".
Manipulated news................. for profit?
Having a "competitor" like Kan We Help, keeps the news on the straight and narrow. The Lassen County Times must please their advertisers first, to stay in business. Remember, this is a weekly throw-away which is locally called fish wrap.
For 15 years Kan We Help has posted stories that the Lassen County cannot publish....because we can investigate, we can follow-up, we can print the truth and the people like that and have trusted Kan We Help.
Does the Lassen County Times practice what they preach? Most might say a whopping big No......
The Lassen County Times sends staff to cover public meetings and people that have attended these same meetings complain about the huge omissions of fact when they read the published version in the Lassen County Times. There is no excuse for this from a weekly advertiser that claims to be a "newspaper", that claims to have "journalists". You can find the real story about LCT by talking with former employees, which Kan We Help has done.
Not too long ago, the Lassen County Times trashed "blogs" and now has tried desperately to be an on-line blog. This is a reminder of when a former Editor of the Lassen County Times was caught publishing fake comments to support her position as Editor.
Trump snaps at San Juan Mayor after she begged him for help and Trump complains that "they want everything to be done for them"
Trump was at his New Jersey golf club when he made the statement about the Puerto Rican Americans.
This is Trumps "staff" at Mar a lago. The staff at his golf club is twice as "BIGLY"
HE'S A BUM: Labron James
no.....he is an Emperor
City of Susanville has a new Community Pool
The City of Susanville is the only incorporated city in Lassen County. The taxpayers of Susanville donated a million dollars + and the taxpayers of Susanville (residents of Lassen County) paid another million dollars + from the County coffers to build this pool.
Susanville taxpayers paid twice so naturally they should act like they own the Honey Lake Valley Pool at 800 South Street. The County has relinquished any interest in the management or financial control of the pool.
The City of Susanville now totally runs
the pool in all aspects.
This explains why the County refuses to attach any link to the Honey Lake Valley Community Pool on the County's website, ANYWHERE.
The City of Susanville has refused to link the Lassen Rural Bus Schedule on their website for fear that Herlong, Doyle or Westwood people would likely want to use Susanville's Pool.
LET'S MAKE SOMETHING PERFECTLY CLEAR:
THE NEW COMMUNITY POOL IS FOR SUSANVILLE
With three Susanville residents on the 5 member HLVRA Board, the County has even lost their voice on the Joint Powers Authority (HLVRA).
This could be why the outlying towns in Lassen County did not want taxpayer money spent on a pool that will only be used for Susanville residents.
KEEP IT A SECRET FROM THE REST OF LASSEN COUNTY
MEDICARE FOR ALL AMERICANS

Medicaid Expansion in all 50 States
Senators McCain, Rand Paul, Susan Collins will vote NO
Nineteen states did not accept the Medicaid Expansion after the 2012 Supreme Court decision which made Medicaid Expansion optional. Medicaid Expansion covers the low-income and this is what Trump has targeted to be eliminated. Killing Medicaid Expansion would kill the Affordable Care Act and give Trump his money for tax cuts for the rich.
THIS IS HIS URGENCY
After nine years, the Republi-Klans (Tea Party/Freedom Caucus)
are still trying to take away health care for Americans
Trumps Treason: Clear & Present Danger
This presentation was made on 9/19/17 at the Board meeting but you will not see a word about it in the Board of Supervisors Minutes or the Lassen County Times. Just normal suppression in Lassen County
Lassen County Supervisors are being advised to
de-value the collateral they put up for the
The Lassen County Supervisors took out a Certificate of Participation loan on June 5, 2015. They used Parcel 1, which is a 23.45 acre parcel that the Juvenile Hall sits on as collateral for the $4,080,000 loan.
Kan We Help argued that if Lassen County defaulted on this loan
that the County would lose the jail.
APN 101-150-01 (2015 map marked in yellow)
The "Site Lease" between Lassen County and the shell corporation "LCPIC" included the 23.45 acre Parcel 1 above.
Now, Lassen County is attempting to degrade their collateral without telling the Lender, *TPB Investments owned by Western Alliance Bank
*TPB Investments was incorporated in 2011 and is based at 201 East Washington Street, Ste 1200, Phoenix, Arizona.
TPB Investments does not have any recorded key officers
If the County goes through with this, the 23.5 acre collateral would be reduced to 2.54 acres and puts the County at risk

LASSEN COUNTY SUPERVISORS VOTE TO APPROVE
THE COUNTY'S 2017/2018 BUDGET
AT THEIR SEPTEMBER 12, 2017 MEETING
Old habits are hard to change, however this year's Budget made a good attempt to clean out those pockets of padded accounts that have held millions of dollars that Kan We Help identified
Kan We Help thinks some decisions should be looked at more closely:
The 2014/2015 Budget and 2015/2016 Budget designated $10,000 each to the three "ONE STOPS" (Family Resource Centers) which directly aids the needs of the County's disadvantaged population. All funds have been cut.
However, the $20,000 contribution for Supervisor Albaugh's District 4 Beiber Pool was preserved.
The $80,000 HLVRA annual contribution has been moved into the General Fund.
9/12/17 UPDATE: Supervisors restored the funds to all three Family Resource Centers.
Would this be a good time to eliminate the Supervisors "politically used"
$25,000 Discretionary Fund and move it into the Family Resource Centers funding?
Lassen County's $5,000 donation to the Chamber of Commerce for the County Courthouse Centennial Event has only produced a few tours but mainly a fund raising opportunity for the the "Chamber". The $5,000............?
In the very recent past, other frivolous large donations by Lassen County, to the "Chamber" included fees for a contest the "Chamber" wanted to enter and a fake Christmas tree.
NEVER ANY ACCOUNTABILITY FOR A SINGLE DOLLAR
Lassen County Counsel's Budget continues to hide expenses
Kan We Help exposed Lassen County Counsel deceptions on his Budget
Lassen County Counsel has been posting his membership costs, postage, travel expenses, and conferences all in OFFICE EXPENSE.
The Membership Account (#3002000) has not been corrected to show the actual costs of memberships and has even been padded with additional funds.
The Office Expense Budget has not been corrected. Office Expense continues to include memberships, postage, travel and conferences expenses and funding has been duplicated now in these individual budgets.
Lassen County continues to deceive the public on this Budget
CAPITAL PROJECTS vs capital projects
Capital Projects have always been this County's Achilles heel. Because Lassen County rarely builds anything
Fund 150/Capital Projects indicates for the 2017/2018 fiscal year that the only Capital Project is $30,000 for more "slab & underground" work for the Public Works Department & more "Stones Well" work. This Budget allows $175,000 for "Professional & Specialized Services". It appears that slab work/well work has become very, very expensive.
Fund 151 however indicates that the Lassen County Supervisors are attempting once again trying to budget $300,000 for the old Courthouse and $50,000 for 2950 Riverside. The Riverside Building continues to cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars in repairs and maintenance. There seems to be no end......
There is one big problem. The LCPIC loan has only $301,017.71 left.

2. Trumps first wife, Ivana Zelnickova, was an immigrant from Czechoslaovakia. She married Trump on April 7, 1977
3. Trumps third wife, Melania Knavs was an immigrant from Slovenia, working in the United States without legal work visas. After working for Trump Model Management in 2000, she obtained a Green Card and married Trump in 2005
TRUMP: If you are WHITE, illegal immigration is accepted.

Trump: a damaged pathetic personality raised by a father that supported the KKK
David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the KKK, stated in Charlottesville, Virginia yesterday (in a TV interview) that they finally after decades have a leader in the White house.
Was he talking about Donald Trump or Brietbarts racist Steve Bannon?
Everyday, it is becoming clearer and clearer that Donald Trump is not a friend of America
TRUMP FAILS TO DENOUNCE THE WHITE RACISTS IN CHARLOTTESVILLE
RUSSIA'S TRUMP IS NO FRIEND OF AMERICA
Trump finally signed Congresses new sanctions on Russia, North Korea & Iran.
Congress passed this 5 days ago and Trump tried to find a way to "not sign". No public ceremony with his oversized scribbled signature. No criticism of Russia's interference in our elections. Trump signed these new sanctions against his friends, in secret.
If Trump let this Bill sit on his desk for ten (10) days it becomes law as long as Congress is in session. Congress made this a "Veto Proof" bill because they do not trust Trump with Russia
Congress will stay in session to prevent Trump from removing the Attorney General and tampering with the investigation against him

Honey Lake Valley Pool
Who will use it?
800 South Street, Susanville, CA
This pool is a County wide swimming pool that Lassen County and the City of Susanville paid for with tax dollars. The HVLRA has installed a bus kiosk in the front so that LRB can drop off/pick up swimmers.
Where is the link to the Lassen Rural Bus Schedule ?
The HVLRA now has a website for pool hours but needs to add a link to the Lassen Rural Bus website also.
The City of Susanville has added a link to the pool on their website. The Lassen County Supervisors should also add a link to the pool information on their website.
City of Susanville's Community Pool Link
Lassen County's website makes no mention of the HVLRA pool, a Joint Powers Project
The only link to "recreation" in Lassen County is the Susanville Ranch Park? There is no information about the pool on the County's "Visiting" page?
Certainly Lassen County can tout more recreation in the County and at least should be promoting the new Pool after donating over $1,000,000
Lassen County CAO, Richard Egan told the Supervisors and the public that the 2950 Riverside building would cost $1,100,000
The actual cost to purchase 2950 Riverside: *$1,381,065.50
and the CAO also claimed that it would cost $600,000 to renovate
Actual costs as of 5/24/17:* 1,050,679.87
and the building is far from functioning at 100%
*public records from the Lassen County Auditor
...and the Lassen County Supervisors believed him?
CAO Richard Egan inappropriately used $80,000 of the LCPIC fund to give to the HLVRA. The annual $80,000 commitment to the community pool was to be paid out of the Tobacco Fund.
Lassen County Counsel's Budget
Will Need Future Adjustments
During budget discussion on June 14 &15, County Counsel was asked why there was a sudden jump from $1,000 in Memberships to $4,000 in Memberships. After the Board called a recess, County Counsel Burns stated that Memberships had been paid in "Office Expense".
Kan We Help submitted a Public Records Request for four years of County Counsel Budget expenses. The reports showed that not only Membership costs were paid out of Office Expenses but, Travel and Training had also been paid out of Office Expenses.
County Counsel, Bob Burns, was hired on May 16, 2014.

Hold a two day "Meet and Greet"
Prior to the Budget Committee meetings
Left to right: CAO Richard Egan, County Counsel Bob Burns, District 5 Supervisor Tom Hammond, District 3 Supervisor Jeff Hemphill,
District 4 Supervisor Aaron Albaugh, Blocked from view: District 1 Supervisor Chris Gallagher & District 2 Supervisor David Teeter
All Department Heads made presentations on...what they do
In the past, only Supervisor Chapman or Supervisor Pyle chaired the Budget Committee. This Committee reviews the revenue and expenditures for Lassen County and submits a budget for the Board of Supervisors to adopt. The County's fiscal year is from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. In the days to come, before June 30, 2017, the Supervisors will adopt a preliminary budget so they can continue to run Lassen County.
Last year, Kan We Help presented the full Board with evidence that certain budget accounts hide millions of dollars in-plain-sight (Memberships, travel, office supplies, conferences). Kan We Help exposed over $6,000,000 in padded budget accounts. The CAO could not publicly state his usual claim that the County was running a million dollars in the red.
Kan We Help video taped the Budget meetings last year, at the Administration Building on Roop Street in Susanville. It was standing room only. The Budget Committee meetings will be video taped this year, no matter where they are.
This year the "new" Board is looking at the County Budget with a new respect of WHERE the money is.
Drug Dealers in your neighborhood?
They can look like this but more than likely you wouldn't even suspect that it is a drug house unless you watch the "traffic"
Drug Traffic @ Drug houses: Cars or pedestrian traffic that is frequent and lasts less than a minute.
Delivery of product: Will be accompanied by the Enforcers, Look outs, & some use the intimidation of dogs
Distribution of product from Drug Houses: Unusual amount of "children" showing up on a specified day, to the drug house, and leaving with full back packs.
The saddest reality of "drug houses" is the use of children
Child Protective Services will take the children out and then have to put them right back in

Successful Clean up Day
Residents took advantage of the free dumpsters Supervisor Gallagher brought to Westwood. Most Westwood Residents complied with County letter to cleanup "trash" on their property
Supervisor Gallagher has done more in six months than former Supervisor Bob Pyle did in his 12 years as Supervisor of District 1
Then there are home owners, like 211 Delwood Street, Westwood, (out of protest) that have added to their piles. They do not intend to comply
Worst property in Westwood ?
Out of shear contempt, this homeowner has added more debris and trash which now extends into the street

Lassen Municipal Utility Board has Wasted
Millions on Filing Frivolous Lawsuits
The LMUD Board went to War with Amedee Geothermal in Wendel, CA. Amedee Geothermal fought back and won [Lassen County Superior Court Case 59485]. This was one of many battles with this unethical public utility. The case was filed on June 25, 2015 and went to trial on April 11, 2017. The Jury returned a verdict for Amedee and LMUD was ordered to pay attorney fees.
During the Fred Nagel/Frank Cady days, LMUD purchased downed power lines at the Hayden Hill Gold Mine in attempt to scam the ranchers, various other land scam deals, Arrowrock Hydro scam, Viewland/ATT scam . All of this and more over the last 17 years [LMUD abuses]

Lassen County Times Editor is Under Severe Public Criticism
Continuing to Post Carol Byers Vile Writings Week after Week
This practice is not about FREE SPEECH.
This is about the Lassen County Times Editor pushing his own agenda and political leanings. Byers letters have always been filled with blatant racial overtones, just pure hate and rarely contain any facts.
The last time Kan We Help criticized the Editor about breaking the weekly papers policy, Sam Williams threatened to sue Kan We Help. When that didn't work he attempted to extort $10,000 from Kan We Help.
Sam Williams has now demanded again a retraction from Kan We Help and $10,000 or he will sue Kan We Help (third time)
When asked to provide evidence that Kan We Help posted an error, Mr. Williams could not provide Kan We Help with any evidence, other than he didn't like it.
Mr. Williams, the public has let you know how they feel about your Byers weekly posts.
Kan We Help had nothing to do with that anger.

Republicans have been caught in a disgraceful lie
New Jersey Representative Tom MacArthur introduced the "Fairness for Our Hospitals Act" (HR 1831) on March 30, 2017. Speaker Paul Ryan and Donald Trump are trying to sell this as a Repeal to the ACA. It states nothing about any Repeal but give them a few days to bastardcize it.
Speaker Ryan is using HR 1831 to bribe Congressman with Pork. Rep. MacArthur was offered $4 million for Opiod Relief for his State. Millions of dollars in Pork/bribes are being offered to just get this to floor for a VOTE on this phony bill.
OBJECTIVE: Remove the pre-condition exemption from the Affordable Care Act....even if it takes lies and bribes
The reason there isn't any Text for the House Representatives to read............there isn't any yet.

On September 9, 2016 Granite Construction was awarded a $ 111,495.38 contract to pave Sage Valley Road in Herlong.
New Jersey Congressman Tom MacArthur will try to
introduce the third Amendment to Obama Care in 2017
The Tea Party/Freedom Caucus demanded an Amendment to eliminate mandatory coverage for "pre-existing conditions"". Rep. MacArthur ran into resistance from the moderate Republicans to allow the States to determine "pre-existing conditions. He then altered his bill to exclude Congress.
In the last 8 years, the Republicans have tried over 60 times to Repeal the Affordable Care Act. It has become a very successful fund raiser for Republicans in their Districts.

TRUMP HAS NO TAX PLAN THAT BENEFITS AMERICAN FAMILIES
BUT.......BENEFITS HIMSELF AND OTHER BILLIONAIRES
*In this "one" page farcical joke tax plan, Trump "the phony President", eliminates the Alternative Minimum Tax to benefit the RICH.
*some are speculating that Trumps youngest son may have typed this
In 2005 Melanija Knays Trump had to file public documents to become a naturalized citizen. This included her tax return.
In that 2005 tax return, Donald Trump the citizen, paid $31,261,179 in Alternative Minimum Taxes (on line 45 below). With Trumps proposed tax cut he would have paid $5,300,000 for the Alternative Minimum Tax.

HSP Resources (Steve Pezzullo/Larry Smith) want their taxes reduced on the Amedee Airfield Parcels
Steve Pezzullo submitted an application to the Lassen County Assessment Appeal Board to have his taxes reduced on the Amedee Airfield parcels he purchased under HSP Resources claiming that most of the 3576 Acres are un-usable due to contamination and now he finds out that he can't rent the Army's Amedee Airfield. The contamination of this property was included in the RFP. HSP Resources claimed they were going to bring in business with private planes landing on the Army's Airfield.
Kan We Help told the Supervisors, at public meetings, that the Army will never allow private businesses to have access to the Army's airfield in Herlong Something Kan We Help told "everyone" when the first of six RFP's were issued by Lassen County.
The value of the 3576 Acres had been assessed at $521,000 after the land was sold to a private party. On March 23, 2017, the Assessment Appeals Board reduced the value and the 3576 acres will be taxed on $393,277.

Amendments to ACA:
1. Americans not required to have health insurance
2. Effective 2020, Republicans will roll-back state Medicaid subsidies to States effecting 10 million poor Americans
3. Republicans will not require employers to provide health insurance for employees
4. Americans that can afford health insurance but let their private health insurance lapse will now see their insurance premiums raised up to 30%
5. Republicans will cut funding to Planned Parenthood for one year and programs for the working poor
6. Republicans intend to issue "credits" to people based on age & income, but a planned "phase out" would eventually eliminate these credits
7. Reverse tax increases on high-income taxpayers
8. Removes mandate for insurance companies to spend 80% of premiums collected for people's healthcare. Windfall for insurance executives

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
Uses dead Bill as Prop
On Monday, March 6, 2017, Speaker Paul Ryan waived around a 63 page pamphlet claiming that the Republicans are ready to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The mistake he made was stating that it was HR 3962. HR 3962, appeared in the House and was voted on 60 times from 2009-2014 (to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act). HR 3962 does not appear in the 115th Congress, but HR 277 does
HR 277 is not 63 pages, it is 183 pages
Read or print a copy of HR 277
Kan We Help contacted Congressman Doug LaMalfa's office on Tuesday and his staff stated that they did not know anything about HR 277.
Today, they not only knew about HR 277 but admitted that this Bill is still in Committee and will be the "Repeal of the Affordable Care Act" when it is brought to the floor of the House of Representatives.
Kan We Help contacted Congressman Phil Roe's (author of HR 277) office today and they stated that the Congressman will support Paul Ryans 63 page alleged "Repeal" that Ryan presented on Monday. However, when HR 277 was brought up they didn't want to talk about it. Is it Rep. Roe's intention to vote for a dead 63 page Bill or vote for his hidden 184 page Bill?
THE THEATRICS OF SENATOR RAND PAUL
Senator Rand Paul was "fake" outraged when he revealed he believed the House was hiding the Repeal to Obama Care (aka ACA) in the basement. Senator Paul even took a copy machine with a bevy of cameras to force the House to give him a copy him a copy of this "HR 3962". (HR 3962 died in the 114th Congress and was never re-introduced)
Senator Paul knew that the real Bill was parked in the House Indian Affairs subcommittee on February 1.
so why the fake drama?

Pete Heimbeigner, Deputy Public Works Director, gave a bumbling/mumbling update on the progress of the County's 2950 Riverside property at the 2/28/17 Board of Supervisors meeting.
Check out the report on Part 3 of the Board of Supervisors 2/28/17 meeting video:
Mr. Heimbeigner solved the fire suppression issue (no fire sprinkler system was ever installed in this building) by installing "fire walls & doors". Does he anticipate the occupants to stay in a burning building or run out and make sure they close the door?
United Builders has 80 "work" days from November 28, 2016 to March 28, 2017 to finish a million dollar project. It appears that Public Works is anticipating giving the contractor credits for days they weren't there. This contract states that the contractor will pay a $1,900 a day penalty if they don't finish by March 28.
The actual move-in day cannot be released even to the four County departments that will be occupying this old building. Public Works was not questioned about the "move-in" costs and who will pay for it.
And then there's Jim Chapman's elevator for his new Boardroom that the County has no money for. Originally a million dollars was initially set aside (from the CIP $4 million loan) to put an elevator in the Old Courthouse but the County needs every penny left (approximately a $200,000 remaining balance after the 2950 Riverside remodel) to finish their boondoggle Riverside building.
However.....let's look at what Chapman managed to stick into the 2016-2017 151/1511/3006118 before he left office. This is the Fund for the CIP loan
$1,000,000 for his elevator
This was a deceptive budget. This cripples the Auditor from paying the $800,000 remaining (3006113) on the Riverside building in this fiscal year.
To date, the County has spent over $2.8 million dollars of the $4 million dollar CIP loan on the Riverside building.
Remarkable marble staircase inside the Old Courthouse
THIS IS WHY KAN WE HELP IS WATCHING
Who has to pay
Judicial Misconduct ?
Case 16cv02114 was about Tony Mallery
Read the original complaint filed on 9/2/16 against Mallery
Judge Tony Mallery continues to sit on the bench in the Lassen County Superior Court (some thought he should have resigned) after a Federal Court orders him to pay $184,830.99 to the 19 year Court veteran Andi Barone who didn't want to take the abuses anymore?
The Lassen County Times has to be goated into publishing the updates and the settlement against Judge Mallery and all they can do is attempt to trash a "local blog" Kan We Help for reporting the truth
The Lassen County Times reports the Mallery Settlement by publishing, again,photos of Mallery's family and friends.
Well, Mr. Sam Williams alleged Lassen County Times Editor, what about the rest of Lassen County that has to pay $184,830.99 for his misconduct and must now continue to question his integrity on the bench?
Tony Mallery's judicial term
ends in 2018
Trump "claims" that he removed President Obama's
Oval Office rug and drapes within hours after taking the Oath
and replaced them with his gold theme
LIAR, LIAR, NOTHING BUT LIES FOR 4 YEARS
Presidents are given $100,000 to use for limited personal upgrades in the White House. (The Oval office & private living space)
Don't worry taxpayers...
Trump put President Bill Clintons old drapes back up
AND....... President Reagan's rug
THE ONLY TRUMP "TOUCH".......WAS PAINTING THE WHITE DOORS BROWN SO HE COULD FIND HIS WAY OUT
There was just so much money in the County's "$4 million loan" to use for the new pool, purchase and remodel the old building on Riverside.
There was not going to be ANY LOAN MONEY to put Jim Chapman's elevator in the old courthouse. Chapman finagled $133,000 from the "loan" money to have another so-called "study" by Lionakis, but it actually cost $62,682.50. As usual, the balance of the $133,000 will become part of a "slush" fund to be used at a later time.
Kan We Help suggested years ago, if the Board of Supervisors want a new Board room they can move the Auditor into the empty downstairs of the Administration Building and put a Board room in that area.

Sam Williams, alleged Editor of the Lassen County Times, wants "civility" and yet he allows dozens of hateful factless articles to be published year after year by Lassen County's Queen of Racism.
Williams also has a new Where's Waldo....Where's Jim Chapman.
Every single week this year, Chappies photo has appeared in the Lassen County Times....some very vintage.......
The love affair continues?
When did the clock start ticking
on the 80 days?
When did Lassen County issue the
"NOTICE TO PROCEED"
On November 28, 2016, United Builders signed a $979,000 contract with Lassen County to remodel the 2950 Riverside building.
According to the contract, if United Builders does not finish the project in 80 days they must pay Lassen County $1,900 a day penalty until the job is complete
Today Trump has threatened to pull all
Federal Funds from California
California is 13% of the GDP
California is the 6th largest economy in the world
To our Twitter Freak Donald.....
we say bring it on
79% of Lassen County voted for Trump
100% of Lassen County
will suffer from Trump
Republi-Klans have finally succeeded in creating
There is nothing to stop them.....
Now, sit back and watch everyone's freedom erode............
Watch Federal money and jobs dry up in rural communities
Trump is well on his way to building his racist administration
Senator Mitch McConnell censored Senator Elizabeth Warren today from reading Coretta Kings 1986 letter into the Senate record during open floor discussions on the confirmation of the racist Jeff Sessions to US Attorney General
Kings ten page document containing Sessions historical racist act
Trump's racists roots are leading to a Constitutional crisis
Are the Trump supporters getting exactly what they wanted:
A racist administration willing to put the rich white class first
It's not like Trump didn't tell you who he was and what he was going to do
Small welfare county's, like Lassen, will be the first to be hurt
LMUD'S "Skedaddle Substation"
The Lassen Municipal Utility District Boards have a long history of poor judgment, scams and lies.
The latest is the "get outta here" project in Wendel.
If unchallenged the LMUD Board will invest most of the ten million dollars (collected by excessive rate hikes) in bringing Nevada energy into California.
General Manager Doug Smith told Kan We Help last year that he was familiar with LMUD's history and would work hard not to go down the same roads of past Board decisions that led to one disaster after another.
2017 promises to be a year of cover-ups
Red Badge/Green Badge
Make sure you have the right badge on "today".
Tomorrow the "bad" badge might be "pink" or "black" or "rainbow"
This is only going to get worse
Why does a "Reality" show star ignore reality?
......because he has a ten minute attention span?
A man that is obsessed with only his "popularity"
and has the maturity of a ten year old spoiled brat
Rural welfare counties will be the first to be hurt with the Republi-Klan cuts
The Editor of the Lassen County Times believes that voters should accept the new administration
Does he mean the same way Lassen County accepted the first black President ?
The editor (?) allowed the most dishonest, factually lacking, racist, bigoted letters to be published more frequently than their own policy allowed.
Now, this severely biased...editor.....wants to tell the 21% that did not vote for the KKK supported candidate that they should accept an incurably flawed President?
Let's see what he writes when the Federal funding dries up for Lassen County. It has already started.........
The January 8 PG&E
Power Outage is More than Suspect now
The public deserves to know the truth and history about the power outages
The LMUD Board has made it clear that the newly planned Wendel Substation will be built to replace power from PG&E. PG&E is not reacting to this well and intends to not play nice.
THE LMUD BOARD IS NOT KNOWN FOR HAVING THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT BULBS
PG& E vs NVEnergy
.....and LMUD finds themselves in the middle
more to come....
This District wide outage was not LMUD's fault
PGE is able to give LMUD power today?
ANYONE WANT TO KNOW HOW THIS WAS DONE TODAY AND NOT YESTERDAY ?
LMUD Director Fred Nagel has power,
Fred Nagel has never had Lassen Municipal Utility District Power
He has been allowed to sit on the LMUD Board, raising rates that he does not have to pay
He has always been a Plumas Sierra Rural Electric customer
Be careful out there.............
