Ecology: “Court decision is big gain for groundwater protection”

Yelm and Thurston County Issues

Dan Partridge, communications manager, Water Resources Program at the WA. Dept. of Ecology states:

“The state Supreme Court has reaffirmed local governments’ obligations to ensure groundwater protection when making land use decisions.

In Kittitas County vs. EWGHMB, the court on July 28, 2011, upheld a decision of the Eastern Washington Growth Management Hearings Board that Kittitas County violated the Growth Management Act. The county was not preventing subdivision applicants from using more than one permit-exempt groundwater well per development. Washington allows the drilling of wells without a water right permit provided that groundwater withdrawals are limited to 5,000 gallons per day.

In considering Kittitas County’s appeal of the hearings board decision issued in 2007, the Supreme Court ruled that the county failed to protect groundwater resources by approving side-by-side subdivision proposals allowing developers to evade legal limits on the use of permit-exempt wells.”

Protection of existing water rights
“’This could come at a great cost to the existing water rights of nearby property owners, even those in adjoining counties, if subdivisions and developments overuse the well permit exemption contrary to law,’ the court said in a 6-3 decision.”

“Water Resources Program Manager Maia Bellon said counties’ obligations in determining the “legal availability” of water in addition to the “physical availability” of water when making land use decisions is nothing new.”

Land-use decisions, water availability linked
“‘The decision recognizes the critical importance of marrying land-use decision-making with water supply and its availability. Those are and should be inextricably linked,’ Maia said in news stories following the ruling.”

JZ Knight interviewed on Coast to Coast AM

Yelm and Thurston County Issues

On Sunday, August 14 from 11PM – 2AM PDT,
“Guest host Rob Simone was joined by Founder and President of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, JZ Knight, for a discussion about her experiences connected with the channeling of a 35,000 year old warrior from the lost continent of Atlantis, called Ramtha. Knight detailed how she first began channeling this being and how that relationship has evolved over the last three decades. She explained that, initially, people misunderstood her experience, thinking she was a medium. To that end, Knight credited Ramtha with creating the term “channeling,” in the 1980’s, as a way of differentiating what was happening with her, since, when she channels Ramtha, he actually takes over her brain and she leaves her body.”

“Knight shared a number of predictions and insights which she has learned from Ramtha over the years.”

“Knight also imparted some steps that people can take to bring enlightenment into their lives. She advised that they first ask themselves if they are “ready for a future.” From there, they should write down the statement “I have always lived the future, now.” She said that focusing on those words and saying them slowly three times will result in a “jazz energy feeling” in one’s head. So powerful is this process, Knight claimed, that “you will see how your life will change in one day.” Additionally, she suggested using statements like “I have always been,” followed by a specific goal, such as increased intelligence or improved health. Knight contended that using these techniques, over time, would result in dramatic changes in a person’s life. “You have nothing to lose, except your past,” she marveled,” quoting the show’s website.
