southernOregon -GAlice District vs BLM- standoff is brewing

14 April 2015 - 10:40 AM











BLM issued a cease and desist order without a court order and without 'Coordination Authorization'....with local authorities. Federal officials acting lawlessly. Possible federal land grab to seize gold rich property on behalf of Chinese government.

Potential situation building in Southern Oregon/Central Jefferson. BLM has issued a cease and desist order to a group of miners in Josephine County 10 miles West of Grants Pass in the Galice Mining District. BLM has given the miners until April 25th to cease and desist all mining operations, remove all buildings and mining equipment. This order by BLM is not accompanied by a legal court order and has been issued on BLM supposed authority alone. Many of these claims have existed in perpituity since the 1870’s. The miners have issued a statement declaring they will resist what they believe to be an illegal order. The State of Jefferson will respond and arrive to support the miners if required. Stay tuned for updates as further information becomes available.

Galice Miners Will Do Battle With Bureau of Land Management

~ Executive Committee; Galice Mining District
There have been many questions about rumors of a battle brewing between the Bureau of Land Management and several miners within the Galice Mining District. While we cannot yet divulge any fine details (and ultimately must keep legal tactics completely private), at this time, we can confirm the following:

1. BLM recently (3/18/15) issued two Stop Orders on a mine, citing authority under their 3809 regulations, despite the fact that this is one of the oldest active claims in the country. The location date of this mine is so old that one of the location notices (the legal title to the mine) was actually first recorded in the original Galice Mining District Recorder’s book in 1876...(snip)..."

It's rare for the models to predict  a track into  So CAl ,as these things( 99-100) head west with the Trades. This one is heading north.  

I've been a weather radar junky for a long time and I can say that what is setting up is a very rare occurrence for   this region.



 I remember this storm, as I was able to see some of the damage it did in the backcountry. Got to walk the rail from Jacumba down to Dos CAbezas..










 I hadn't realized that damage has been repaired to the rail line. This vid  takes in the whole climb from Plaster City , through the CArrizo Gorge,up to Jacumba.




good guy detectorist finds wedding ring

OCEANSIDE — A family’s summer vacation in Oceanside became an agonizing tale for an Arizona woman who lost the wedding ring her husband gave her when they married nearly 20 years ago.

But thanks to the detective work and kindness of Vista resident Dennis Coppock her story has a happy ending.

Donna and Todd Stubblefield of Winslow, Ariz., were visiting coastal North County on July 15 with their two teenage sons. Donna Stubblefield was playing catch with one of her boys on the beach, just north of the Oceanside Municipal Pier, when the 3/4 carat diamond ring slipped off her finger....(big snip)"...

"“It’s just the right thing to do,” he said.

When the Stubblefields arrived home in Arizona, they sent Coppock a prepaid package for him to return the precious band, Donna said.

“I awaited anxiously for it and just a few days later, there it was, my wedding ring that I prayed for since it had been lost,” she said. “It ended up being in perfect condition, only full of sand.”

Coppock declined any reward for returning the ring, Donna said.

“What is remarkable is the fact that there are still people out there like Mr. Dennis Coppock, who still posses old fashioned morals and values,” she said. “Thank you Dennis from the bottom of our hearts. You will never know how grateful we are that you were the person that found my wedding ring.”"
