California nudists accused of stealing public water

September 15, 2014

nudeRangers for a Northern California open space district raided a nudist colony Thursday, accusing the residents of stealing water from a district waterfall. [Mercury News]

Amid the current drought, the Lupin Lodge nudist camp, located near Los Gatos, has endured major water shortages and has resorted to trucking in water. Residents of the camp recently opted to run an upstream water line that drew water out of a Midpeninsula Open Space District waterfall.

The makeshift pipeline reportedly produced about 11.5 delivery trucks of water per day for the Lupin Lodge. Owners of the lodge justified the water source, saying they have grandfathered in water rights and need the water for fire protection.

But, open space district officials disputed the claim, saying the nudists’ actions amounted to a private taking of a public resource.

District rangers, in turn, removed the water line, coiled it up and dumped it on Lupin Lodge property. A testy encounter then occurred between the rangers and the nudists, which resulted in sheriff’s deputies coming to keep the peace.

No arrests occurred, and the nudists did not receive any form of citation for erecting the water line. It is unclear if any further legal action will occur.

What does the Word hold for us on the subject of sarcasm?


You bring God into a discussion, you bring Ted as well.

I’m curious as to where the accompanying photo came from; I clicked on the link in the story to go to the original story, but that photo was not there. Did CCN “invent” this photo, or did they dig it up somewhere to add to the salaciousness of the story?


Jorge Estrada

The photo could have been taken during an arrest for exceeding the time alloted at a pay shower, a job for the higher ranking deputy.

Oh my, their erection precipitated a testy encounter? I’ll bet our chubby deputies were nonplussed….


catdude

Jorge Estrada

Nudist stripped of their water rights, fowl governing?


achillesheal

Was it the male or female nudists who erected the water line?


achillesheal

The “teste encounter” must have been particularly disturbing to the deputies.


NorthCountyGuy

Moonbat Brown’s gross mismanagement is the biggest water thief in California.

Holy Smoley! Can you imagine the resulting firestorm of regulatory retribution fallout if this had been a Christian youth camp that tapped into that water source? Oy- the Horror! The Horror!

If it were a Christian youth camp that did it they would not need the trucks, they would of

course been able to walk on the water and transport it in their shoes.

panflash,


If this were a TRUE Christian youth camp, there would have been no need for stealing water in the first place, because if they were taught, AND BELIEVE, in Jesus’ words, they would never be without water!


JESUS STATED; “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24)


Therefore, the Christian youth would only have to pray that they never run out of water, and if they truly believe, their prayers would be answered. Get it?

SloTownMan,


Jesus said there would be days like this. “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me” (Matthew 5:11)

Good point, Ted.

Hey Ted-


You DID notice the “WARNING: Sarcasm Alert” advisory that I put at the top of my original post, right?


Get it?


achillesheal

Sarcasm is the devils humor. Forget it, I tried.


Ted Slanders

panflash,


I am sorry, but Jesus’ words have to error on the side of caution these days.
