"Jared Hancock Swimming Pool"?
With a new swimming pool in sight, some are wondering if the pool should be named after Jared Hancock, Susanville City Administrator, since he's been the main player spearheading the pool project through. Also, recently, Hancock have brought more new development to downtown Susanville giving it a more modernized look and to accommodate the locals.
Meanwhile, Chapman is on his last leg finishing up his term as Board of Supervisor struggling to get his elevator and new board chambers' project off the ground. We will update as project advances.

Dr. Richard Meinert Murder Unsolved
Richard Meinert murdered June 23, 2014. Meinert was found shot in the chest at Thompson Peak Veterinary office. It is suspected that Meinert interrupted a burglary and was killed by the assailant(s) in a struggle. The amount of drugs/animal sedative or money the murder got away with is unknown.
Meinert's expertise took him to the far corners of Lassen County and beyond. At one time he was licensed in 5 western states, Kansas, and New Hampshire. Rich participated in research at Plum Island, New York where he studied the diseases of livestock related to bio terrorism and was a state veterinarian for the California Department of Agriculture researching bovine tuberculosis. For many years Mienert was the contracted veterinarian with the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program in Litchfield.
Note: Is it true that Lassen County Sheriff Department cannot make an arrest in the Meinert Murder case, since the Board of Supervisors keeps the District Attorney and Sheriff Department on a tight budget? Is public safety at risk?

Were All Votes Counted?
Only 751 votes were counted for District 2 Supervisor race, 3234 votes counted for City Council race. Lowest turnout in over a decade for District 2 and City Council, except for 2012 election, which was questioned by many with security seals just jumping off voting machines for unexplained reasons other than to leave the voting memory card subject to being tampered with to alter votes. Most usually during a presidential race there's an increase in voter turn out. Do you know if your vote was counted?
Note: It was reported that Chapman was seen busy beating a path from County Clerk's office to Brian Wilson's office these past few days before election. What's up with that?

Voter fraud is taken serious with Jane Duke, Attorney of the United States and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Randall C. Coleman. In Crittenden County, Arkansas, four men were charged with conspiracy to commit election fraud. Duke stated, “The most fundamental rights we enjoy as American citizens include the ability to vote and, if we so choose, to run for elected office. In a nation in which every person’s vote matters, protecting the integrity of the electoral process from those who seek to win office by cheating the system is critical. Voter fraud schemes such as that carried out in the 2011 District 54 race have the devastating effect of eroding public confidence in elected officials and disenfranchising voters,” Coleman in response to the guilty plea, stated,“The right to vote is among the most precious we hold as American citizens; having open, honest, and fair elections is essential to our democracy. Election fraud schemes involving the bribery of Arkansas voters will be aggressively investigated by the FBI.”
On the night before Philly’s primary, four local election officials are accused of casting extra votes in order to balance their numbers
In Philadelphia, the night before it's primary, four local election officials accused of casting extra votes in order to balance their numbers. Even though the 6 phony votes made by election officials did not impact the outcome of the election, Attorney Seth Williams seen it as more of a matter of principle of law. “There’s no legally justifiable reason to vote multiple times and you cannot falsely certify that you live in a particular ward and division in order to work the polls and collect a check,” said District Attorney Seth Williams. “Our democracy rests on free and fair elections, but it also relies on the fact that they are conducted properly, which is why these four individuals deserve to be arrested for what they did.”

Archangels' comment about Romero's release...
Typical of small time losers in a quiet town. They screw cases up from the beginning then make deals. Our government at all levels is beyond corrupt. It's evil
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Lassen County's officials are not prepared for their budget meetings. Is this the prime reason, they fail to bring a project to reality before exhausting all funds? Watch the videos below to compare Marion County budget meeting to Lassen County's, you will see how unprepared Lassen County is for their budget meetings. Marion County is more prepared and transparent with their budget, then Lassen County is.
Note: Marion County works with a larger budget, but the same concept should apply to all when preparing a budget.
Prepared Budget Meeting vs Unprepared Budget Meeting
Local media, Chapman and followers embracing the future of Lassen County with rainbows and unicorns. They paint a pretty picture to mislead the people into denial that there's no real crime issue in Lassen County. They keep the Sheriff and DA's budget lean so there's no funds to fight crime to protect the taxpayers. Elevator, taj mahal, and bicycle trails rank top priority over public safety. Don't drink their Kool-Aid, It's toxic!
Thomas A. Romero from Modoc County was a democratic candidate for California State Senator District 1 in 2000, endorsed by Governor Gray Davis, U.S. Senator Dianna Feinstein, Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Attorney General Bill Lockyer.

The election results are unofficial in Lassen County, tentatively as of June 15, 2016. Lassen County Clerk still undecided who the winners will be. Will this be another grueling task for County Clerk Bustamante like in the 2014 election where it took her 18 months to count her own votes when running for County Clerk? The Scoop will keep you updated as the 2016 Primary Election results evolves in Lassen County.

2012 & 2016 Primary Election Precinct Result For District 2
Below are copies of the total votes cast by VBM (Absentee) and at the Polls for 2012 and 2016 for District 2. In 2012, VBM (Absentee) votes were 1107 while only 58 voted at the polls. In 2016, it was the opposite, with only 94 VBM (Absentee) votes and 970 votes at the polls. We find the election results questionable due to the fact there's a huge drop in the vote by mail VBM (Absentee) votes for District 2. Most usually VBM (Absentee) votes increases each year with less people going to the polls to cast their votes.
July 12, 2016, during public comment at a Lassen County board meeting, Supervisor Chapman rudely attacks a SEIU representative for speaking at the board on behalf of the noble In-Home caregivers and exposing how the County officials squanders the taxpayers money to pay an outrageous amount to Rick Haeg as a consultant and legal counsel, instead of giving the caregivers a 50 cent raise.
The State of California has almost 400 home-care service providers that help more than a half million people in California. The noble In-Home caregivers make it possible for the elderly or people with disabilities to stay in their homes by helping with their daily activities, that include eating, dressing, bathing, using the toilet or moving about the home, preparing meals, grocery shopping, managing the household budget, managing medications, doing light housework and other basic activities.
The fact is the underpaid, overwhelmed caregivers save the U. S. health care system billions of dollars, unlike Supervisor Chapman, who creates bottomless pits to consume taxpayers money for his pet projects.

Discrepancy in Registered Voters
There's a big discrepancy in the number of Registered voters in Lassen County in the two reports below with a difference of 695 registered voters. Which one is right, both cannot be right? Will there be an UPDATE #13 report?

America Don't Need Any Help Destroying Itself, America's Corrupt Government and Justice System Is Doing a Good Job All By Itself!
Nation Wide EBT (Food Stamp) Cards Not Working and More...
First, the poor is starting feeling the effect of a broke Government ran by a bunch of greedy, lazy politicians, who are quick to waste hardworking American's tax dollars. Government workers will be next in line to feel the effects of all of the foolish/wasteful spending. Remember, "Pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered". Too many politicians at the at the slop tough, feeding off the hard working tax payers and taking from the needy? Will Lassen County be prepared to deal with food riots like the ones recently in Venezuela? Or will they be too busy helping Julie tally votes?
NO JUSTICE FOR ANGEL SILER
Angel treated like a second class citizen, not worthy of justice in Lassen County. William Romero soon will be free with the other two guys, who never were held accountable for the murder of Angel Siler.
Lassen County Rigging Votes?
After the Scoop posted the election results below the morning of June 8, 2016, numbers started changing on the election reports. There's at least 4 reports updated, posted on Lassen County website with number of votes changing. The polls closed at 8 p.m. June 7, 2016. All 51 precincts 100% results were reported. Are all 670 increase in votes, provisional ballots or has someone been busy digging absentee ballots out of trash cans?
District 2 absentee ballots;
What happened to all of the absentee votes for 2016 in District 2? Only 8.14% absentee votes counted! This discovery is quiet disturbing to the voters in District 2 as other voters in Lassen County.

Lassen County 2014 Elections
Lassen County Clerk Julie Bustamante appears to have had a difficult time counting her own votes in the June 3, 2014 Primary Election when she ran for County Clerk against David Cole. It was not until December 4, 2015 (18 months after the Primary Election) that the election results were finalized. The General Election for November 4, 2014 results were finalized in only 6 days later. How can it be that in the November General Election the candidates from the June Primary Election were in the run off for District 3 without results being finalized from the June 3, 2014 election?
Dealing With Poverty

Civil Rights Violated
Angel Siler deprived of her rights under Color of Law. They discarded her life as though she was a second class citizen.
Will the FBI pursue the Angel Siler case now that it's so obvious her rights were violated by former DA Burns and Susaville PD by not following protocol to investigate her death?
