Constitution of the United States
Written in 1787, ratified in 1788, and in operation since 1789, the United States Constitution is the world’s longest surviving written charter of government. Its first three words – “We The People” – affirm that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens. The supremacy of the people through their elected representatives is recognized in Article I, which creates a Congress consisting of a Senate and a House of Representatives. The positioning of Congress at the beginning of the Constitution reaffirms its status as the “First Branch” of the federal government.
The Constitution assigned to Congress responsibility for organizing the executive and judicial branches, raising revenue, declaring war, and making all laws necessary for executing these powers. The president is permitted to veto specific legislative acts, but Congress has the authority to override presidential vetoes by two-thirds majorities of both houses. The Constitution also provides that the Senate advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments and on the ratification of treaties.
Preamble to the Constituion
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Yuba County General Plan
The EIR developed by AECOM guided by our Planning Director has been under development long before I became a County Supervisor and it is my impression that from the beginning it is a plan with an environmental agenda using AB32 and AB758. The Yuba County General Plan fiscal analysis was completed March 10, 2011 and conclude that the General Plan forecasts were completed before the full effect of the recession were known. We have not seen the bottom of the recession or land values and according to real estate experts we are looking at 10+ years before we bounce back from this current market. continued...

Yuba-Sutter Veterans Home
Air Force Staff Sgt. Richard Lawson, left, puts his hand on the shoulder of Army veteran Jeff McCumber while he is pushed in his wheelchair by Yuba County Supervisor Andy Vasquez.
Loma Rica resident Bert Johnson was inspired to write the song about seven years ago to finally tell his story of serving in Vietnam. Although the tale is his, detailing the draft notice, time spent in the jungle with "rifle in hand" and the thousands of names on the national war memorial, it's one shared by most others who served.
"I went home to my family," he sang. "But the battle keeps on raging. The war never dies."
After serving in the Army from 1967 to 1969, Johnson returned home, not to hostility, but a painful absence of recognition.
"It's the feeling that you are back and nobody cares," he said. "You're at home, but you are still in Vietnam. And the trauma still carries with you."
Nearly four decades later, Johnson and every other service member were thanked Saturday at the third annual Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day at Veterans Hall in Yuba City. About 150 people in attendance represented all branches of the military — Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine — and had served in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, the Cold War, Iraq and Afghanistan.______________________________
