    Doubtful that a hillbilly dragging a chain is a supporter of Governor Newsom. This isn't political but outright stupidity and started four or five fires that many local resources were diverted to.

      Actually, he somehow managed to drag a trailer through some electrical wires and started several fires instead of stopping to deal with the problem. Maybe 150 acres burned and some evacuations for a time.

        Know of at least two local crews that were coming home from two weeks plus at Tamarack for a well-deserved night home that went straight to Jenny Lind.

Hope you won't miss you Bacon Californians

You may of missed this but a few years back CA voted for farm animals to have more room in their pens, cages before we butchered them.
We, as in the people of this state might find pork products hard to find and down right expensive.
So far everything democrat have certainly been a bust to this state and to our country.
From Mymotherlode
"Thanks to a reworked menu and long hours, Jeannie Kim managed to keep her San Francisco restaurant alive during the coronavirus pandemic.

That makes it all the more frustrating that she fears her breakfast-focused diner could be ruined within months by new rules that could make one of her top menu items — bacon — hard to get in California.

“Our number one seller is bacon, eggs and hash browns,” said Kim, who for 15 years has run SAMS American Eatery on the city’s busy Market Street. “It could be devastating for us.”

At the beginning of next year, California will begin enforcing an animal welfare proposition approved overwhelmingly by voters in 2018 that requires more space for breeding pigs, egg-laying chickens and veal calves. National veal and egg producers are optimistic they can meet the new standards, but only 4% of hog operations now comply with the new rules. Unless the courts intervene or the state temporarily allows non-compliant meat to be sold in the state, California will lose almost all of its pork supply, much of which comes from Iowa, and pork producers will face higher costs to regain a key market.

Animal welfare organizations for years have been pushing for more humane treatment of farm animals but the California rules could be a rare case of consumers clearly paying a price for their beliefs.

With little time left to build new facilities, inseminate sows and process the offspring by January, it’s hard to see how the pork industry can adequately supply California, which consumes roughly 15% of all pork produced in the country.

“We are very concerned about the potential supply impacts and therefore cost increases,” said Matt Sutton, the public policy director for the California Restaurant Association.

California’s restaurants and groceries use about 255 million pounds of pork a month, but its farms produce only 45 million pounds, according to Rabobank, a global food and agriculture financial services company.

The National Pork Producers Council has asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture for federal aid to help pay for retrofitting hog facilities around the nation to fill the gap. Hog farmers said they haven’t complied because of the cost and because California hasn’t yet issued formal regulations on how the new standards will be administered and enforced.

Barry Goodwin, an economist at North Carolina State University, estimated the extra costs at 15% more per animal for a farm with 1,000 breeding pigs.

If half the pork supply was suddenly lost in California, bacon prices would jump 60%, meaning a $6 package would rise to about $9.60, according to a study by the Hatamiya Group, a consulting firm hired by opponents of the state proposition.

At one typical hog farm in Iowa, sows are kept in open-air crates measuring 14-square-feet when they join a herd and then for a week as part of the insemination process before moving to larger, roughly 20-square foot group pens with other hogs. Both are less than the 24 square feet required by the California law to give breeding pigs enough room to turn around and to extend their limbs. Other operations keep sows in the crates nearly all of the time so also wouldn’t be in compliance.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture said that although the detailed regulations aren’t finished, the key rules about space have been known for years.

“It is important to note that the law itself cannot be changed by regulations and the law has been in place since the Farm Animal Confinement Proposition (Prop 12) passed by a wide margin in 2018,” the agency said in response to questions from the AP.

The pork industry has filed lawsuits but so far courts have supported the California law. The National Pork Producers Council and a coalition of California restaurants and business groups have asked Gov. Gavin Newsom to delay the new requirements. The council also is holding out hope that meat already in the supply chain could be sold, potentially delaying shortages.

Josh Balk, who leads farm animal protection efforts at the Humane Society of the United States, said the pork industry should accept the overwhelming view of Californians who want animals treated more humanely.

“Why are pork producers constantly trying to overturn laws relating to cruelty to animals?” Balk asked. “It says something about the pork industry when it seems its business operandi is to lose at the ballot when they try to defend the practices and then when animal cruelty laws are passed, to try to overturn them.”

In Iowa, which raises about one-third of the nation’s hogs, farmer Dwight Mogler estimates the changes would cost him $3 million and allow room for 250 pigs in a space that now holds 300.

To afford the expense, Mogler said, he’d need to earn an extra $20 per pig and so far, processors are offering far less.

“The question to us is, if we do these changes, what is the next change going to be in the rules two years, three years, five years ahead?” Mogler asked.

The California rules also create a challenge for slaughterhouses, which now may send different cuts of a single hog to locations around the nation and to other countries. Processors will need to design new systems to track California-compliant hogs and separate those premium cuts from standard pork that can serve the rest of the country."

    So, you have a problem with chickens being able to at least turn around in their cages? The reality is the drought and the inability of our government to acknowledge climate change means that dairy cows are currently being culled (that's the nice word) to immediately become hamburger. Pastures are gone, water diverted and feed costs more than makes for a profitable business. So, in the short run hamburger may cost a bit less or at least the price remain stable. A year or more out your weekend steak will cost a fortune because herd production is not something turned around overnight. Some of you are also blaming the forest service for letting some of the big fires go like Tamarack but the reality is we are not funding or cooperating to address climate change (as our governor at least addressed with President Biden). Yet so many in the GOP refuse to even acknowledge the concept of climate change and somehow manage to convince you it's somehow the Democrats' fault.

    Yes, because I would really like to know when a disease like Mad Cow breaks out and we can isolate and contain.That's called science in the name of public health. Otherwise, we might as well be China.

          Both of the previous posts in denial of what is happening on our planet. Truly sad, especially if you have children or grandchildren.

          I'm reporting the news that next year bacon might be a pretty hard product to find even in a restaurant. Why do I have to take sides?
          As for democrat's, it is a fact that the majority in our prisons ( felony convictions) are democrats- FACT
          That also goes for democrat politician's convicted of crimes. Both examples are easily obtained and certified- FACTS No amount of denial, or arguing about it changes the Facts. Democrat, liberal, socialist of the left are the most violent criminals in our Nation, causing the most crimes against our citizens.

        I'm a farmer, I was born and raised here. I'm also a democrat but not one of those socialist commie ones running around looting and burning businesses. I heat my home with firewood, I raise pigs and eat them too. I grow crops and eat those. I'll be raising more pugs then normal. When it's time I shoot them between the eyes then I slit open their throat cutting the jugular. So as the heart is still beating the blood gushes out of the severed jugular. Makes it a lot neater when I hangem up by their rear legs and gut them. Damn tasty meat
        I dont tell those thieves in Sacramento cause all they'll do is steal my money and spend it on wetbacks who don't belong here anyway.
        I also sell my pigs to restaurants pigs are like Gold and I'll be wallowing like one in the money I make with them. Cows are a whole different story and I don't have anymore.

        Tonight we're having marinated chicken thighs wrapped in bacon and then grilled on the BBQ. I saw some at Save Mart last year and they looked pretty good so now we do it and choose our own marinate.

          Interesting how tpt shuts down the comments section when someone makes a disparaging remark about an establishment visited by locals.
          If a local or nonlocal makes a true statement, why should freedom of speech be denied.
          Sexual innuendo and perverts can comment all they want. Factual statements are muted.
