I am asked every so often why my pages are not open for everyone or followers to post on. The answer is pretty simple. People can not be trusted! Yes that is a blanket statement, rumors printed have a way of becoming a gospel or perceived as truth compared to when you hear something at the bar or even grocery store.
Civ. Code § 45 defines libel as “a false and unprivileged publication by writing, printing, picture, effigy, or other fixed representation to the eye, which exposes any person to hatred, contempt, ridicule, or obloquy, or which causes him to be shunned or avoided, or which has a tendency to injure him in his occupation.” See Savage v. Pacific Gas & Elec. Co. (1993)

As the owner of my News pages and Siskiyou News Network, being lucky enough to live and call Sisq my home I take this very, very serious. My folks came through Scott Valley in I believe it was 1968 and my dads old panel van broke down on the way to Washington State. Little did they know at the time, but God must have had a grand vision for my parents.
My father was hitch hiking to the parts store, sidenote “which was run by our new neighbors father!”. So my father got picked up by a Scott Valley Local or more like pioneer and was told “we do not tolerate hitch hikers in these parts.” So after being put to work building fence and other ranch chores they got the van running again.
60 years later we are still here.
My mom, is probably the longest running business owner on main street in Etna. A town that I call home, I even ran for local seat on the city council and was elected. Made me feel needed, heck I was the paperboy in this one horse town when I was a grasshopper. I have had many many nicknames, all in good fun most of the time. I am vested in this small way of life, I understand small business and stick to itiveness. I have never been a profiteer and I sleep great when I lay my head down to rest.
I am here for you siskiyou, I do and will make mistakes. But trust me, I am an Aries to the “T” and a double fire sign to boot. I have fire for the Lord and nature. So when I throw someone under the bus be assured it was for a dam good reason, and I make my calls and make sure this is not some wild half baked notion I DREAMED up.
So with that off my chest, a post that was on Siskiyou Grapevine found to be or portrayed to be, was way false! The post was down right statutory libel !! The post is down and I am not going to post names or even the post. But I will go on the defence on something I started about the “Wild Horses” in the monument area in North Eastern Siskiyou County.
Do your own search of the web before you feel all high and mighty, go down a rabbit hole or two and educate yourself. The web can be an amazing tool, just like it can destroy a family member, loved ones, business way of survival and mental health. I think of it as a double edge sword, yep cuts both ways.
So here is a little bit of web searching for your information.
