Matthew 1:18-23 "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph, her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 'And she will bring fourth a Son, and you shall call his name Jesus (meaning Savior), for He will save His people from their sins." So all of this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, "Behold the virgin shall be with child and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God is with us."

Irrigation water block is no guarantee for Basin by Tom Mallams Klamath County Commissioner for Herald and News 12/16/14. "In the Dec. 13 Herald and News, I was incorrectly quoted as saying there is a “guaranteed” block of water for Project irrigators in the proposed water agreements. I have never said this. I have consistently said they only “claim” or “attempt” to have a guaranteed block of water for Project irrigators..."

Letter from Klamath Falls City Councilman Bill Adams to Congressman Walden, Senator Jeff Merkley and Senator Ron Wyden, posted to KBC 12/16/14. "...While their is mixed support by members of our agricultural community, I believe it is only because they have their backs against the wall. The majority of this community does not support this bill because it requires Dam Removal. This was shown by the election of all three County Commissioners who have opposed the KBRA and recently sent you a letter opposing SB2379..."
Psalm 20:1-6 "May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice. May He grant you according to your heart's desire; We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up banners! Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand." sent from Frank Tallerico 12/7/14

More water needs to be allocated for agriculture, by Brandon Criss, Siskiyou County Supervisor District 1, 12/2/14. "Eighty percent of Siskiyou County and 77 percent of the Tulelake basin voted no on dam removal. When dams are a Klamath County campaign issue, pro-dam candidates have consistently won. With the dams in place, we are seeing record runs of Klamath River salmon. Tearing out existing hydropower dams that have proven benefits for fish, Basin agriculture, and this past summer’s firefighting efforts, is no solution."
