Fred Kelly Grant seminar on 10th Amendment powers

The 10th Amendment explicitly enumerates the powers of federal government and reserves all other powers to the states or to the people. The federal government has grown at an exponential rate, far exceeding its Constitutionally authorized powers. On July 29 and 30, Fred Kelly Grant will be discussing how we can demand that our federal government comply with the 10th amendment.

Fred Kelly Grant earned a doctorate degree in law from the University of Chicago School of Law in 1961. In recent years, he has focused on protecting property rights and access to natural resources on public lands. He assisted Owyhee County, Idaho in developing the first county “coordination” process that allowed the county to take a balanced seat at the management table with the federal land management and natural resource agencies. He has assisted counties, towns, and districts in fifteen states to establish their rightful place at the bargaining table. He has a Web site called War on Rural America about protecting private property rights through strategy and coordination.

Fred Kelly Grant will be conducting a two day seminar on July 29-30 in Grants Pass called “To the Tenth Power & Strategies for Improving Local Economy.” The first day is for Sheriffs and focuses on how local Sheriff’s departments can use the “coordination” process mandated by federal agencies to exert equal authority with federal government agencies on issues of concern to local counties. The second day is open to the public and will focus on the meaning and implications of the 10th amendment for private citizens.

The cost for the July 30 seminar is $50 per person. It will be held at the Anne Basker Auditorium from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Opening on Natural Resource Coordinating Committee

IMPORTANT!  There's an opening for a representative from the agricultural community on the Natural Resource Coordinating Committee.

Federal law requires the BLM and Forest Service to coordinate with local government on any decisions affecting federal land in the local region, providing that the local government has an established Natural Resources plan.

This is the committe that is drafting that plan for Josephine County. Once the plan is in place, federal agencies must comply with the plan and coordinate with the county on any decisions affecting public land within our county.

In the current makeup of the committee, the preservationists slightly outnumber those who advocate the responsible utilization of our natural resources. This opening gives us an opportunity to bring more balance to the committee, and prevent our county coordination plan from being slanted toward preservationism.

If you're concerned about losing the rights to use our pubic natural resources in Josephine County, and want to have a real impact on the future of our county, please apply for this postiion!

The application is available online in either MS Word or PDF format.

Print the application, fill it out, and drop it off at the Commissioners’ office at the County Courthouse on 6th St between A & B Sts.

The deadline is June 23, so don’t put it off. Please apply NOW.
