City of Yelm water rights appealled – by a local citizen!

“Yelms water rights appealed: Department of Ecology ruling on Yelm Creek based on whats best for public interest”

“Yelms water rights, which were granted by the Department of Ecology and affirmed by the Pollution Control Hearings Board in March, have been appealed by Yelm resident Sara Foster.

The appeal will be heard in Thurston County Superior Court. A hearing date has not yet been set.

In court documents, Fosters lawyer, Patrick Williams, argues the boards decision to uphold DOEs decision to grant the water rights ‘do not meet the criteria established by the (pollution board) itself in its final order,’ and says a judgment in Fosters favor ‘would force Ecology to create real, measurable, and sustainable measures prior to Yelms use of the water right at issue, thereby protecting Ms. Fosters interests.’

In granting Yelms water rights, DOE weighed the ‘overriding considerations of the public interest’ to approve the appropriation of closed streams.

The decision was appealed to the Pollution Control Hearings Board and the appellants challenged the use of the public interest provision, noting the DOE doesnt have any written policy or rule governing its use.

The board concluded the department established through testimony sufficient criteria to guide the use of overriding considerations of the public interest thereby justifying its use in this case without the promulgation of a rule or adoption of a policy,'” quoting Steven Wyble in the Nisqually Valley News.

Editor’s Note:
The Dept. of Ecology had granted the City of Yelm more-than-double-their-current water rights to pump from the aquifer, which would have an effect on other citizens’ wells outside of the Yelm city limits, as explained by JZ Knight’s legal team and which included as part of her WA Supreme Court win in 2011.

Another reason to visit Yelm’s Farmers Market today


Yelm’s Farmers’ Market 2nd year, Today – end of October
next to Stewart’s Meats near McKenna

– “‘The Awakening That’s Happening’: Local, Sustainable Food”
“People are realizing that we cant rely on the industrial food system much longer.
The awakening thats happening is our greatest opportunity, says New Mexican farmer and activist Miguel Santistevan. This awakening has sparked the revival of local, sustainable food systems.

At its most basic, sustainability connotes a system capable of continuing indefinitely without compromising future life. Sustainability is also sometimes described as a three-legged stool: in order to be balanced, it must sit equally on sturdy legs of economics, environment, and equity. A food system contributes to community sustainability if it is economically viable for small farmers; nourishing of the earth and elements; and socially equitable for all involved, including farm and food workers and consumers.”

“Examples in the movement to create local, sustainable food systems are virtually endless. Here are just a few:

* Farmers markets are also experiencing a meteoric rise. Between 1994 and 2011, farmers markets registered with the US Department of Agriculture increased 400 percent. They now number over 7,800. Markets are also vibrant community gathering spots, places to meet, play, connect, and unwind. Food from a farmers market or CSA typically travels between 10 and 100 miles, unlike the long distances traveled by their grocery store counterparts,” quoting Tory Field and Beverly Bell, Other Worlds | Harvesting Justice Series, posted in Truthout.

From Space.com:
“There is more to a “supermoon” than meets the eye.

Science governs the appearance of the largest full moon of the year, and this weekend you can check out the amazing lunar sight for yourself.

On Sunday (June 23), the moon will be at its closest point to Earth called perigee. This relatively close brush will happen as the moon enters its fullest phase, creating the cosmic coincidence known as the supermoon. At its fullest and closest, the moon will appear about 12 percent larger in the sky. [Amazing Supermoon Photos of 2012]

‘It doesn’t matter where you are, the full moon you’re seeing will be the biggest for 2013,’ Michelle Thaller, the assistant director of science at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center said. ‘ That 12 percent size different can mean as much as a 30 percent change in the brightness, so this will be a particularly bright supermoon.'”

For Thurston County, Moonrise begins Saturday at 8:26pm, reaching a crescendo Sunday morn at 4:33am.

“Spiritual Journey Begins June 26 at RSE” in Yelm

From the Press Release in The Wall Street Journal:
“Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) will hold a Beginning Event Wednesday, June 26, through Sunday, June 30, to introduce new students to Ramtha’s teachings and disciplines. RSE’s tranquil campus is the ideal environment to experience new potentials, expand your spiritual horizons, and capitalize on the mind’s natural abilities.

The Beginning Event allows students to achieve fundamental shifts in personal reality in a retreat setting away from normal activities and distractions. Participants will be introduced to Ramtha’s philosophy and given opportunities to engage disciplines designed by Ramtha. The disciplines allow one to test the statement that “you create your own reality.” This allows students to experience their own personal truth and their own wisdom rather than rely on belief, faith, or someone else’s word.

According to Ramtha’s model of reality, we have direct control over how our lives play out. Students will be trained in the art of creating personal reality through a deeper understanding of the brain’s mechanics.”

Blog writer Steve Klein is in his 28th year as a student of Ramtha’s, has been employed by JZ Knight for 10 years having resided in Yelm since 1988.
