Oregon Couple Forced To Destroy Their Pond Because Government Ruled It Illegal

• http://www.trueactivist.com

A couple from Oregon have been told that they must destroy a 2-acre pond on their land because the government said they have to. The pond on Jon and Sabrina Carey's 10-acre property near Butte Falls is the land's most attractive feature and has been in place for 40 years. In an interview with the Mail Tribune, Jon became teary-eyed as he stood next to the pond and said, "I basically bought a lemon. That's how they explained it to me." The couple, who purchased the property two and a half years ago, are desperate to keep this feature intact, and therefore have "pleaded with the Medford Water Commission to adopt the pond and treat it as a municipal water source, something Jackson County Watermaster Larry Menteer has opposed because of the precedent it would set. The Water Commission has rights to the watershed around the Careys' property, where dozens, if not hundreds, of ponds are located, as well as Medford's primary source of water, Big Butte Springs", reports the Mail Tribune.

Others in the area have also had trouble with water ownership in the past. Eagle Point resident Gary Harrington spent 90 days in jail for illegally harboring around 13 million gallons of illicit rainwater, according to reports. This happened after he crafted several ponds on his property and insisted that the water would assist in fire control and prevention. However, the government was not satisfied with his justification since a "1925 state law dictates that the water belongs to the Medford Water Commission."

Due to the fact that Oregon law dictates that water is a publicly owned resource, and Harrington did not possess said permits, "Rain Man" as he became known, was charged with nine misdemeanors, spent three months behind bars, and had to pay $1,500 in fines, in addition to being ordered to destroy the dams and drain all the ponds.

According to the Watermaster's Office, the previous owners of the property did not receive a permit for the pond, consequently meaning that the Careys are now in violation of Oregon regulations, meaning that they would also have to pay the cost to drain the water. The Careys then had to hire an attorney, Sarah Liljefelt, who proceeded to file a request with Jackson County to provide a permit for them to store water, stating, "The reservoir on Ms. Carey's property, though small, is one of the largest in the area."

The title is wrong. Government didn’t rule the pond illegal. Rather, some Government people ruled the pond illegal and said that government did so. Without knowing the deep details, it is difficult to know if the Careys violated a contract or not. Violating a contract or injuring a man or woman are the only two ways that the Careys might have done something wrong. There are several things the Careys can do. See below.

There are several things the Careys can do. Hiring an attorney in the standard way is NOT one of them. Hiring an attorney like this, makes one a client of the attorney. One who is a client of an attorney is considered a ward of the court, a minor with regard to the court, an infant in the eyes of the court. Rather, find an attorney who is willing to be co-counsel only. The Careys would speak for themselves in court. The attorney would only advise them as to how to speak in some things. Next, below.

When a complaint is filed against you by Government, especially if you have time, rather than operate within the complaint by filing motions, etc., file a claim within their complaint. The claim might look like this: a) I, [a] [wo]man, (your name), gave no entity, known as the STATE OF (OREGON), the right to administrate my property; b) I say that the property described on schedule A is my property; c) I say that no man or woman will make a claim saying that my claim is untrue; d) I want my property to remain under my complete control without the STATE OF (OREGON); e) I will charge trespassers on my property ($10,000 per day) every day they are on my property.

The, above claim can be adapted for use with any property, including that of you body if you are arrested. The stipulation is, you must not have violated a contract, or injured a man or woman.
