Toughening trespass grow penalties

Sentencing must take into account environmental harm 

A bipartisan push by Northern California’s congressional representatives has resulted in tougher penalties for drug-related trespassing on public, private and tribal lands across the U.S. 

As of Nov. 1, federal judges must take into account environmental damages, such as water diversions and vegetation removal, as separate or aggravating offenses in addition to those already laid out by the U.S. Controlled Substances Act.  

Man arrested on suspicion of rape, kidnapping

A local man on Friday was arrested on suspicion of raping and kidnapping a 15-year-old girl, but he had a seizure and was hospitalized before police could bring him to jail.

Crescent City Police officers contacted the suspect, Shawn Frillman, 36, at his residence on 5th Street after the victim and her mother reported the incident on Friday at 1 p.m. They identified Frillman as the perpetrator and said that the incident had taken place at his residence, according to interim Police Chief Scott Berry.

Triplicate subscribers warned of scam

With roughly 5,000 veterans in Del Norte County, picking a handful of grand marshals to honor for the parade this Veterans Day was no easy task.

After honoring five World War II veterans and a general in the Hmong Army last year, the Veterans Day Committee and VFW Post 1381 chose to focus on those who fought in the Korean War, said committee member Duane “Sparky” Countess. Four local Korean War veterans will be grand marshals in this year’s parade and will lead the flag salute at the Veterans Day dinner Tuesday.

Ceremonial dirt was turned at the Del Norte County Regional Airport Thursday to celebrate not just the real ground-breaking that will begin on the airport’s runway improvement project next week but also the many behind-the-scenes tasks completed over the past several years to create a shovel-ready project.  

“This is the first turning of the shovel for a physical project, but this project has been going on for a long time,” said David Finigan, chairman of the Border Coast Regional Airport Authority, which manages Del Norte’s airport. “All along the line we’ve heard from various stages, consistently, year after year, that ‘You can’t do it.’ Well, I’m here to show you today that we can.”

Money woes closing school

After nearly 10 years of providing an alternative education model for Del Norte students, Klamath River Early College of the Redwoods will close on Dec. 19.
