The Ancestral Yuba River | Welcome to a new friend: The Astoundingly Conservative Yuba River

Life on the Yuba Watershed

The Ancestral Yuba River is an ancient, gold-bearing gravel river bed that existed 55-40 million years ago, and ran in a roughly north-south direction prior to the geologic uplift creating the Sierra Nevada range as we know it today.  The geologist, David Lawler, publishes a map of the system which is available here: http://www.californiagoldpublications.com/maps.html.

It is believed the word Yuba is a variant of the Spanish word “uva” — in English,”grape.” The Yuba was probably named by early Spanish or Mexican explorers for the wild grapes that climb through the river canyons, much in the way the Feather River watershed was known as ”Plumas” for the abundance of wildfowl. These names were established before the California Gold Rush and well-known to the 49ers.

This site is intended as a forum and community resource covering the joys and challenges related to life on the ancient gold bed and the area comprising the present-day Yuba Watershed.

[Terry:  Now, What does this next post have to do with the Yuba River? Is it sick? Does it have a sex life? Is this a dumbass place to stick political rants? Many questions, so few answers.]

 

Obamacare will question your sex life

By Betsy McCaughey September 15, 2013

Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?”

Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help. And you can thank the Obama health law.

“This is nasty business,” says New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski. He called the sex questions “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.” He couldn’t think of an occasion when a cardiologist would need such information — but he knows he’ll be pushed to ask for it.

Pot farm pollution: Too dangerous to deal with?

“The issue of keeping creeks, streams and rivers free of toxins has become a statewide issue.”

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — With parts of Northern California’s scenic hillsides illegally gouged by bulldozers for marijuana grows, frustrated local officials asked the state for help to protect streams and rivers from harmful sediment and the chemicals used on the pot plants.

They hoped to charge growers under federal and state clean water regulations with tougher penalties than the infractions local officials could impose. But they were rebuffed.

It’s too dangerous, the state agency in charge of protecting the region’s water said in a letter to county supervisors.

“We simply cannot, in good conscience, put staff in harm’s way,” wrote Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board Executive Director Paula Creedon.

As in many rural counties in California, marijuana farms are becoming more and more plentiful. They proliferate in the high Sierra, where armed Mexican cartel operatives clear wilderness areas, divert creeks and poison wildlife.

Undated photo from Butte County Department of Public works shows illegal grading 1000 ft. from the Feather River. Growers flatten remote hilltops, dam streams to divert water and allow sediment and chemicals to reach waterways.

Will California rural counties secede from Sacramento’s control?

SACRAMENTO — Most Californians treat with bemusement the news that the board of supervisors in far-north Siskiyou County voted 4-1 early this month to seek secession from California and revive efforts to create a new state of Jefferson.

But while U.S. flags are unlikely to soon add another star, this rural separatist movement has long been brewing and is based on serious grievances that state and federal officials would be wise to ponder.
