California as 6 states, see my earlier posts about an independent Texas

I published messages in the fall of 2013 about what would happen to Texas if it were to become an independent nation again. I was doing research for a Toastmasters International Competent Communicator project. Some of the information about an independent Texas would also apply to a division of California into 6 states. Search my blog for references to them, they were published in September 2013.
I will get around to reviewing and recalculating the number of representatives currently representing all or part of each California county.
My home state of Massachusetts did not have 351 cities and towns at the time of the 1790 census. I have looked at histories of Massachusetts, and see that towns and cities were split off from existing communities, even into the 20th century. I know that some of the early divisions were caused by people living in a remote portion of a larger town who found it difficult to get the town center or to the community’s church. Petitioning the legislature to create a new town allowed them to set their own tax rate, have their own town schools, set up their own local church, and have other things that go along with being your own town or city. I wonder how many of these “secessions” were amicable and how many were not amicable.
Massachusetts lost 4 towns in the 1930s when the towns of Enfield, Dana, Greenwich, and Dana were disestablished/disincorporated, and their land given to neighboring towns. The lands were taken by the state for what has become the Quabbin Reservoir.

What would happen if California would split into 6 states, Part 2

I looked at the online Congressional Directory entries for California available through http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys Search for Congressional Directory, which is

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CDIR-2014-02-18/pdf/CDIR-2014-02-18-CA.pdf

I wrote the names of the counties included in each of the 53 districts, and compared the county names with the list of the counties that would be in each of the 6 new states in the latest proposal. See wikipedia entry Six_States for a list of the proposed states and the counties that would be in each.
Current CD 1 , 2 states Jefferson , North California
2 2 states Jefferson, North California
3 2 states Jefferson, North California
4 2 states Central California, North California
5 3 states Jefferson, North California, Silicon Valley
8 2 states Central California, South California
9 3 states Central California, North California, Silicon Valley
11 2 states North California, Silicon Valley
23 2 states Central California, West California
35 2 states South California, West California
39 2 states South California, West California
47 2 states South California, West California

There are 8 Silicon Valley only districts, 2 North California only districts, 12 South California only districts, 5 Central California only districts, 16 West California only districts, and 0 Jefferson only districts. [The total adds up to more than 53, so I will have to recheck the county information and congressional district information. But what a mess it will be if the current state government and the federal congress ever agree to do something like this.
I am not going to try to figure out the situation with the state legislature, or the school districts, and the cities that may cross county lines into two states.
A report by the California Legislative Assembly Office reportedly says that 60 % of the current in-state California students of the University of California would become out of state students. Oh, that news will surely make the proposal wildly popular with voters. [Ha!]

What would happen if California were to split into 6 or more new states?

News reports say that a petition has been submitted to the California officials to put a referendum question on some future election ballot about splitting the state into 6 different states.
1. Where would the state capitol of each new state be located?
2. How many representatives in the U.S. Congress would each new state be allocated? Each must have at least one.
3. Where would the state prison population be relocated? Would San Quentin still have to have all the Death Row prisoners, or would they be relocated based on where they were tried. Does each new state have enough jail and prison capacity to house those whould be convicted of crimes in the new state?
4. How many current Congressional districts would cross the boundary of two or more states? How many would remain the same, and how many would have to redistricted?
5. How many state legislative districts cross the boundaries of two or more new states?
6. How many school, municipal, special purpose, and other districts would cross the boundaries of two or more new states?
7. How many cities currently have territory in two or more counties of the current state? How many of these cities would be located in two or more of the new states?
8. The infrastructure of many utility districts, such as water and sewer districts, electric supply districts, and other districts may not be easily separated one from another. For those that would be located in two or more districts, would the Federal constitutional principles and legislation about “interstate commerce” begin to have effect?
9. What other consequences and effects would occur if California were split up into different states?
10.. The last time part of a state seceded from another U.S. state was when West Virginia broke away from Virginia during the Civil War during the 1860s. What did the new state of West Virginia do to create laws, and how did its laws begin to diverge from the laws of Virginia?

Answering even part of one of the questions above would be a wonderful assignment for political science or government course professors to give to students with low grades who come to ask, “Is there anything I can do to earn some extra credit to raise my grade?” [What a fiendish assignment!]

This is an interesting hypothetical problem that I intend to investigate. I will post my results at this blog.
Some of my starting research points will be information provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.

There may be politicians in the U.S. Congress, and professional lobbyists, who may find benefits in having California split up into multiple states. I would not count this proposal as a Dead on Arrival when sent to the Congress idea.

Possible Alternative Occupations for Library Workers

This is a table of information that I have created on June 25, 2014. I will be sending information about it to some discussion lists for librarians who are seeking work or seeking ideas for new careers.

Possible Alternative Occupations for People who work in libraries as a library assistant, library technician,
or Librarian. Suggestions from retired librarian Thomas Lindsey, June 25, 2014

Another BLS website , May 2013 Metropolitan and Nonmetropolitan Area Occupational and Wage Estimates is a master web page with links to estimates of employment in each occupation nationally and by metropolitan and non-metropolitan area http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oessrcma.htm For instance, if I was interested in the job market in Abilene, Texas, I could get some information about it.

I would also go to the Census Bureau Economic and Government Censuses, to look at the Census of Government Information for the 2007 and 2012 Censuses, and the annual County Business Pattern reports.
I think that Abilene, Texas is in Taylor County, Texas. TKL

The table is arranged by state, and alphabetically by metropolitan/nonmetropolitan area name

The following are Standard Occupational Classification codes used in federal statistical and occupational

Revolutionary War Locale, Battle, and Skirmish Locator

This is the newest revision of my list of places connected to the American Revolutionary War. It is far from complete. One information source that I consulted states that there are more 1,300 battles and skirmishes that took place during this war. It was in fact a global war, with conflicts underway between Great Britain and other nations in places such as Canada, India, Sri Linka, islands in the tropics, and sea battles. The “United States in Congress Assembled” and the individual 13 states commissioned more than 2000 privateer ships to attack merchant ships and naval vessels. Loyalists in the United States and Great Britain itself commissioned privateer ships to capture merchant ships sailing to and from ports controlled by the Americans fighting for independence.

The intent of my Revolutionary War, Locale, Battle, and Skirmish Locator is to match a geographic feature with a Feature ID number in the U.S. Geological Survey Geographic Names Information System. A feature ID record includes a name, state, county, feature ID number, latitude, longitude, and type of feature.
Point clicking on the name in a record leads to more information about the feature name, variant names and a citation to the source of the variant name information.

This record also has hyperlinks to several federal government and several commercial map and satellite photograph display systems that allow the place to be viewed through maps or photography.

I have given my best efforts to match a current feature name with the Revolutionary War era feature name. Some places may be mismatched or misidentified. Some places have ceased to exist, such as places inundated by lake or reservoir water impoundments. Some places have been annexed into the city limits of other cities. In these cases, I have tried to find a nearby feature and feature ID number to link to the Revolutionary War era feature.

Location State Name County or District Name Feature ID No. Type

the campaign journey from Rhode Island to Yorktown, Virginia in 1781

School librarian positions may be stabilizing

The U.S. EEOC conducts a survey every even-numbered year of employment in Public School systems with more than n thousand employees. About 5,000 are covered. The survey is published as Form EEO-5. The survey results for 2012 were published on 4-29-2014. Comparing 2010 and 2012 result numbers for librarian seems to show that decline in employment of librarians has stopped in the 49K range. Trying to find the reports from prior years that I looked at. They had difference URLs than the page for 2010 and 2012.

Updated Revolutionary War Site Locator

Well, it is now April 17, 2013. I have been working on my Revolutionary War Site Locator and have updated many entries. There are still many places to check, and some of my current information is probably incorrect. Helpful comments are always welcome.

The information is location, state, county, USGS Geographic Names Information System Feature ID, and type of location. I also include notes underneath entries to help explain the location.
Using the GNIS http://gnis.usgs.gov and entering the feature ID number will lead to a gazetteer entry. Clicking on the feature name will lead to more information about it, and a list of map and satellite photographs about the place.

Location State Name County or District Name Feature ID No. Type

See the entry Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail for a National Park Service Website with maps and text about

the campaign journey from Rhode Island to Yorktown, Virginia in 1781

that surrendered at Saratoga were marched to. It is located in the town of Rutland, Massachusetts. There was a state prison

camp in the same area from 1903-1933 that was for prisoners with tuberculosis. It was closed in part because it was located

on the Ware River, which may be part of the watershed for the Quabbin Reservoir which was about to open as part of the Boston

area water supply.]

An interesting part of my research has been trying to find old ferry crossings and fords in rivers and streams that were shallow enough for men, horses, and wagons to cross from one shore to the other. More on that in the future.

Revolutionary War Place Locator

I have been updating the information in my blog entry titled Locator of Revolutionary War…, and have also started researching a list of places referred to by the Marquis de Lafayette which are not in the Locator.

What a situation I have encountered. One source says that the Paramus New Jersey of the 1700s is now Ridgewood, New Jersey, Tinicum Island, Pa. is now included within the grounds of Philadelphia International Airport, Hog Point, Virginia could one of two different Hog Point, Virginia locales, Fredericksburg, New York might now be West Patterson, New York, Bergen Neck could be Bergen Neck, or it could be Bayonne, New Jersey.
I could go on with others, but you see the problems that I encounter, and I am sure that the U.S., British, and Hessian forces encountered back in the 1700s.
I will interleave the lists with each other and repost the locator in the future.
