Overview From An Independent Perspective

 

 

Sharp Park WILL REMAIN A GOLF COURSE after a federal judge DISMISSED a legal challenge from Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations on December 6th, 2012.

 

According to United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Sharp Park would MOST LIKELY NOT POSE THREATS TO THE EXISTENCE OF FROGS AND SNAKES ON AND AROUND THE GOLF COURSE.

 

This Golf Facility has been under a SIEGE OF GOLF-HATING ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM under the PRETEXT of somehow protecting obscure and insignificant species.

 

In fact, Sharp Park Golf Course is NOT harming ANY animal species.

 

Not surprisingly, Enviro-Lunatics HATE AND DESPISE the Game of Golf.

 

Enviro-Lunatics want to SHUT DOWN Golf Facilities like Sharp Park.

 

Anti-Golf Organizations have TERRORIZED the City of San Francisco for years over the future of Sharp Park Golf Course.

 

Sharp Park MAY STILL BE CLOSED because of their RELENTLESS AND UNCEASING LIES AND MIS-INFORMATION. 

 

The habitat that Enviro-Lunatics are trying to « recover » was originally created when the golf course was built along with a sea wall, isolating the Laguna Sal from ocean waves. 

 

If the golf course had NEVER BEEN BUILT, there would be no habitat for the endangered species. 

 

Anti-Golf Enviro-Lunatics seek the DESTRUCTION of Sharp Park, as well as the ENTIRE Golf Industry. 

 

Golf-Hating Terrorism will NEVER END unless the Golf Industry STRIKES BACK !

 

The Golf Industry Should Tell Anti-Golf Activists to Get OFF Our grASS and Roast In Hell.

Sharp Park WILL REMAIN A GOLF COURSE after U.S. District Judge Susan Illston DISMISSED a legal challenge from Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations.

 

On December 6th, 2012, a long legal battle broke toward the pin for Sharp Park golfers when U.S. District Judge Susan Illston DISMISSED A LAWSUIT by Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations that had threatened to close the 80-year-old Pacifica golf course in San Francisco, California.

 

The dismissal by U.S. District Judge Susan Illston caps FOUR YEARS OF LEGAL WRANGLING over habitat for protected San Francisco garter snakes and California red-legged frogs.

 

Sharp Park’s signature sogginess is just one sign of its fragile perch along the seaside ecosystem.

 

Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations FALSELY ALLEGED that the pumping of water on and off the course damages egg pods and habitats of protected species.

 

In her DISMISSAL, Illston cited an October 2nd, 2012, report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which found golf at Sharp Park would MOST LIKELY NOT POSE THREATS TO THE EXISTENCE OF FROGS AND SNAKES ON AND AROUND THE GOLF COURSE.

 

According to the report from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, it is expected just a single frog and snake would be killed over a 10-year period during normal golf course operations.

 

According to the same report, a MERE 130 frog egg masses, though, would be destroyed each year, the report estimated.

 

Bo Links, co-defendant in the suit and co-founder of the San Francisco Public Golf Alliance, described the DISMISSAL a TREMENDOUS VICTORY.

Golfers Triumph Over Snakes

and Frogs In Sharp Park Dispute

Finally, the golfers, snakes, and frogs at Sharp Park Golf Course can rest easy in co-existent bliss. 

 

For a number of months, they have all been on the endangered list.

 

Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations had CONSPIRED together, bringing a lawsuit on behalf of the reptile / amphibian contingent, arguing that ongoing golf operations somehow threatened the limited numbers of the California red legged frog and San Francisco garter snake that called Sharp Park home.  

 

Golfers, FIGHTING BACK, viewed themselves as the species earmarked for extinction.

 

But now, the various powers-that-be have taken the necessary steps to ensure parallel play.

 

On December 6th, 2012, the United States District Court issued a decision dismissing the Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations’ attempt to SHUT DOWN THE GOLF COURSE.

 

The court explained the basis for the lawsuit 

 

Plaintiffs [ a.k.a. Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations ] contend that defendants’ water management at Sharp Park has exposed frog egg masses to the air, causing fatal desiccation of the egg masses, thereby reducing the frog population.  [ ?!?! ]

 

Plaintiffs also claim that other golf course operation activities    lawn mowing and golf cart usage    harm the Snake and Frog by running them over.  [ ?!?! ]

 

What SWAYED THE COURT was a report issued on October 2nd, 2012, by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

 

The report from United States Fish and Wildlife Service, known as BIOLOGICAL OPINION AND INCIDENTAL TAKE STATEMENT, concluded that actions contemplated by the course are 

 

  NOT LIKELY TO JEOPARDIZE the continued existence of the California red-legged frog or San Francisco garter snake.

 

The report from United States Fish and Wildlife Service 

 

  anticipates that, in total, ONE FROG will be killed or injured [ and ] that, due to golf course maintenance and operations, all Frogs and Snake swill be subject to    HARASSMENT [ ???!!! ], and ONE FROG and ONE SNAKE will be killed or injured.

 

The report from United States Fish and Wildlife Service also 

 

  anticipates that 130 Frog egg masses each year will be subject to    harm, HARASSMENT [ ?!?! ], capture, injury, or death as a result of pumping activities for the next 10 years.

 

Incidental death and harassment ( you gotta love the image ) notwithstanding, the report found that, in a Darwinian ( or Gloria Gaynor ) sense, the frog and snake SPECIES WILL SURVIVE.

 

With the findings of United States Fish and Wildlife Service in place, the court made its decision 

 

The court concluded that deference was appropriate under the law, and held that the environmental groups could not proceed with their claims.

 

Accordingly, the court DISMISSED THE CASE, leaving the Sharp Park Golf Course habitat to the golfers, California red legged frog and San Francisco garter snake, as God and nature intended.

Environmental-Terrorist-

Organizations Face Setback In

Fight Over Future Of Sharp Park

Selected and Adapted Excerpts

 

 

 

Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations suffered another setback in their SUBVERSIVE CONSPIRACY TO CLOSE THE SHARP PARK GOLF COURSE when U.S. District Judge Susan Illston DISMISSED their Federal lawsuit on December 6th, 2012.

 

The lawsuit was originally filed in March 2011 by the following Environmental-Terrorist-Organizations 

 

   Center for Biological Diversity

 

   Sierra Club

 

   Wild Equity Institute 

 

According to Golf-Hating Anti-Pesticide Enviro-Lunatics at Sierra Club, Golf Facilities are 

 

  as unnaturally pumped-up as a steroid-addled East-German shot-putter.

 

Environmental-Terrorists CONCOCTED VIOLATIONS of the Endangered Species Act by the City and County of San Francisco, which owns and operates Sharp Park.

 

Specifically, the terrorists ALLEGED that course maintenance activities, including water pumping, were harming some egg masses of the threatened red-legged frog, and that the City of San Francisco did not have the required permit from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service that would allow these activities.

 

In May 2011, the City sought consultation with United States Fish and Wildlife Service, and submitted applications for the Sharp Park Pump House Safety and Infrastructure Improvement Project.

 

After a lengthy and extensive study, while the trial was put on hold, United States Fish and Wildlife Service issued its final report    BIOLOGICAL OPINION    on October 2nd, 2012.

 

Included in the report was an INCIDENTAL TAKE PERMIT covering those course operations that were the basis of the original lawsuit.

 

At that point, the San Francisco Public Golf Alliance, co-defendants in the lawsuit, ASKED THE COURT FOR A MOTION TO DISMISS, claiming the permit rendered the plaintiffs’ [ a.k.a. Environmental-Terrorists’ ] complaint was MOOT.  

 

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston AGREED, and on December 6th, 2012, DISMISSED the case.

 

But the BIOLOGICAL OPINION held even more bad news for the plaintiffs [ a.k.a. Environmental-Terrorists ].

 

United States Fish and Wildlife Service, with some restrictions, approved the course’s plans for up-dated maintenance, infrastructure improvements and habitat restoration.

 

Contrary to the Environmental-Terrorists’ long-standing contention, United States Fish and Wildlife Service believes that golf at Sharp Park 

 

   is NOT LIKELY TO JEOPARDIZE the continued existence of the California red-legged frog or the San Francisco garter snake.

 

This is a sentiment heartily echoed by Sharp Park’s many supporters.

 

According to Pacifica Mayor Pro Tem Len Stone 

 

I applaud the judge's decision.  Sharp Park is an invaluable asset to our community, and I look forward to working with San Francisco and San Mateo County on its continuing restoration and safekeeping of the protected species.

 

This latest setback for the Environmental-Terrorists comes on the heels of their RECENT DEFEAT in the San Francisco Supervisors’ Land Use Committee.

 

A resolution proposed by lame duck Enviro-Lunatic Supervisor Christina Olague, and championed by Wild Equity Institute’s Enviro-Lunatic Brent Plater, would have SEVERED Sharp Park from an ongoing Natural Areas Environmental Impact Report process and required San Francisco to start from scratch with a new plan for Sharp Park.

 

Critics contended this would have wasted years of effort and expense.

 

The resolution was INDEFINITELY TABLED.
