Lassen County Times, finally reports LMUD's PCB spills?

Third LMUD site identified for PCB's


Lassen County Times Reporter, Shayla Ashmore,  Suppressed LMUD's PCB Problem in 2004 PCB COVER UP

Shayla Ashmore was taken to the PCB spills after a LMUD meeting in the fall of 2004. This story, as all stories that exposed the LMUD corruption, was buried.

On November 7, 2007, the EPA fined LMUD for falsifying a federal form when they tried  to hide the PCB problem. EPA fine LCT suppressed "this"  story also.



Woody Morgan was Editor of the Lassen County Times in 2004 and was best buddies with Frank Cady and the Nagel clan.

The PCB spills, at LMUD, were intentionally suppressed by Woody Morgan. Woody left the newspaper after suffering several strokes.

The public never knew about the PCB's until Kan We Help published the story, in March of 2008,  after receiving a copy of the EPA fine. PCB COVER UP

*Morgan also suppressed what was actually happening with the Arrowrock Scam and just published what Frank Cady wanted  the public to know. When Kan We Help submitted Arrowrock information, Morgan ignored it. The Lassen County Times HAS NEVER PUBLISHED KWH'S SIDE OF ARROWROCK.....................EVER!  LCT's suppression of the truth about Arrowrock,  allowed LMUD to continue this scam for five years.


Wayne Langston, Fred Nagel are only LMUD Directors that remain. Both were responsible for the cover-up.




Jaimee Richey/Jones, LMUD President Fred Nagel and Frank Cady negotiate to buy property for LMUD from their friend Jack Beterbide that Beterbide didn't own.

And it was contaminated

A Deal was made with their friend Jack Beterbide. The LMUD Board entered into negotiations to buy property  from Beterbide that he didn't even own. The day Beterbide bought the property he sold it to LMUD. Huge profits were realized........Stinks to high heaven................but this is nothing new with Jaimee, Fred and Frank




District Attorney looks the other way.....nothing new there!!!

District Attorney, Robert Burns, is the backbone of white collar crime in Lassen County

LMUD General Manager and LMUD Board have elected to do the publics business in private. LMUD Agendas will no longer place the public's "business" in open session. 

The Lassen County Times, Barbara France,  has given this violation, of the Brown Act, a name....Uneventful meetings




2/1/06: LMUD Board purchases land secretly without any public vote

November 9, 2005 LMUD Meeting

At the November 9, 2005 LMUD meeting, the LMUD Board and Frank Cady placed an item in closed session in regards to "real property. The closed session description was negotiations with Jack Beterbide for parcels 101-150-23 and 101-150-02. However, Jack Beterbide did not own one of the parcels (101-150-23).   

The Brown Act requires the Board to report any actions taken in closed session.  The LMUD board took "no reportable action".   

KWH objects to this issue being discussed in closed session and reminds the Board that this must first be placed in open session. 54956.8- Negotiations for sale/purchase of public property.

Again, "no reportable action" is taken by the Board.

January 17, 2006  LMUD Meeting

The "real property" deal is placed again on the agenda, in closed session

The LMUD Board reports "no reportable action was taken". 

LMUD has never placed the purchase of the "real property" on any agenda other than in closed session. The Brown Act requires this issue to be placed on the agenda in open session. 

 To date: the LMUD Board has never taken any action to purchase  parcel 101-150-023 owned by Robert and Gail Prosise and parcel 101-150-02 owned by Jack Beterbide. 

 January 17, 2006 minutes

February 1, 2006   

Frank Cady makes a purchase of property illegally. Frank Cady  purchased property from Jack Beterbide without Board approval. Frank Cady has a limit to purchase supplies and materials up to $25,000. Anything above this must be placed on the agenda for an open session public discussion and disclosure.

LMUD must hold an open session in which it must identify the property to be purchased. LMUD has never put this issue in an open session. LMUD is in violation of the Brown Act. 54956.8- Negotiations for sale of public property.

LMUD must place the purchase of property on an agenda for open session in order to take action on the purchase. LMUD is in violation of the Brown Act 54952.6.- Action taken defined

LMUD must approve any payment of demands before the general manager can make payments. The General Manager cannot not, on his own, purchase land without an action by the LMUD Board in open session. No action was taken by the board. LMUD is in violation of the governing law, CPUC DIVISION 6-MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICTS. 11891-Payment of demands

On February 1, 2006....... Jack Beterbide  suddenly purchases parcel 101-150-23 (.92 acres @ $130,434.00 per acre) from Robert and Gail Prosise for $120,000 AND SELLS IT TO LMUD THE SAME DAY . 


On February 1, 2006,...... Frank Cady records the purchase of parcel 101-150-023 and 101-150-02 from Jack Beterbide for $381,232 (check #14603 1/30/06). The purchase was signed by Frank Cady on January 26, 2006.

Jack Beterbide sold the two parcels to LMUD, (2.42 Acres),  for $157,438 per acre.

Was this a pre -arranged scam ?.....

LMUD could have purchased the "Prosise's property directly.....for $120,000 or less.

Did Fred Nagel, Beterbide and Cady conspire to secretly scam LMUD....something really STINKS 



The LMUD Board cannot violate their governing law or the Brown Act. Cady cites LMUD Resolution 99-02, however the LMUD Board must comply with the law and cannot pass any resolution or ordinance that violates current laws.
