Corrections, June 11, 2016

Crescent City Mayor Pro Tem Blake Inscore’s name was spelled incorrectly in a June 2 story concerning city council’s search for a new city manager.

A page one headline Thursday incorrectly stated Crescent City Council’s actions regarding allocations for Rural Human Services (RHS) and the municipal swimming pool. As stated in story, the council agreed to continue allocating $300,000 to RHS from a state Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The council also voted to give RHS an additional $40,000 from a $200,000 allocation originally earmarked for the pool.

City wants bulk of grant to go to pool, not RHS

Rural Human Services could be getting additional money from Crescent City but not anything close to what agency directors say they need to cope with growing numbers of victims of domestic violence and the hungry.

At Crescent City Council’s meeting Monday, RHS requested all of some $200,000 public service funding included as part of a $2 million state grant the city is seeking. After much discussion, City Council agreed to allot RHS $40,000, should the city succeed in obtaining the grant. The remaining $160,000, councilors agreed on a unanimous vote, should go to offsetting costs for operating the municipal swimming pool.

Officials are requesting public assistance in locating two brothers with ties to Crescent City who have been named as persons of interest in an ongoing kidnapping and rape investigation.

The Investigations Bureau of the Del Norte County District Attorney’s Office is asking for any information regarding the whereabouts of two brothers — David Ken Lee and Peter Meng Lee.

The Lee brothers previously resided on Indra Street together. David Lee recently lived in Chico, where he was a student at Butte College and worked at a Subway, but has not been seen there for about two weeks, according to a press release from District Attorney Dale Trigg.

The brothers are not known to be armed. The press release asks anyone with information about the whereabouts of either man to contact the District Attorney’s Office at 707-464-7210 immediately rather than initiating contact with either of the men.
