KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — A judge in Klamath Falls has denied motions to temporarily stop the state of Oregon from shutting off irrigation in the upper Klamath Basin to satisfy water rights the Klamath Tribes are using to protect fish.

The Herald and News (http://bit.ly/12LQp4L ) reports that Klamath County Circuit Judge Cameron Wogan on Friday denied motions filed by some upper basin ranchers.

            Although maybe most people don't know that all Tribes are supposed to be sovereign however they remain under the jurisdiction of the government. Hello, BIA! The BIA is under the Department of Interior and thus -Government as well as many other agencies. Can you think of one? I hate hearing the race card that the Indians are getting the water turned off! I guess some will be complaining if a pipeline comes through too! Whose fault will that be? Everyone needs water and I believe there are those that work hard in their chosen professions. I thought here in America "we were all the people".

            The Klamath Tribes are a sovereign people with government-to-government relations with the United States. As such we have a treaty that guaranteed us certain rights in exchange for our former lands: an area that spanned from west of I-5 in norther California to Goose Lake in eastern Oregon to the top of the Cascade Range in the North. In short our ancestors gave up most of what we had to the ancestors of those who we now ask to honor those agreements.

            I was under the impression Water Rights were part of the Sale of Indian tribal land in the 50's and again in the 70's. to the Federal Gov. Something is all wrong when a bottom feeding Carp is more important than Farmers Crops, where is John Wayne when we need him?

            America was built on the backs of the working man. How sad that in America we would allow water for a fish to take food from a family. I am so saddened and disgusted by what is taking place in our community. Our local farmers and ranchers deserve better than this. They have for generations put their hard work and sweat into our community. It is time "we the people" stand up for what is right and put a stop to stupidity, selfeshness, powerplay and strong arming. We cannot allow one judge to determine the future of our entire community. Are we at the point in the United States of America that we will be paying for the air we breathe simply because it passes through someone elses land they currently own or used to own? How rediculous this has become. Time for change.

          Should Oregon change its law requiring attendants to pump gas?

          Drivers in New Jersey could soon pump their own gas under a bill being introduced in the Assembly. Under current law residents are not permitted to pump their own gas. New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states that require attendants to pump gas. Should Oregon change its law? Send comments to gobrien@heraldandnews.com
