Reports of bear harassing Bertsch

Pursuit, flight and confrontation marked three reported sightings of a black bear in the neighborhood of the Bertsch-Tract during the past several days.


On Tuesday night a caller reported seeing a bear run into some bushes near Elk Valley Rancheria. Another caller says his dogs chased a bear into a tree near Darby Street and Ames Way on Saturday morning.


The same area has been plagued by reports of mountain lion sightings and attacks on animals in recent weeks.

Dispute over trees cut near power line

An outraged property owner is looking to account for several trees removed from her land in Crescent City by Pacific Power early this summer. 

Sabrina Nilan currently lives in Riverside but came back to town a couple weeks ago and discovered stumps, brush and debris in place of the numerous willow and alder trees that used to occupy the front of her property near Railroad Avenue.

Nilan and her husband were seasonal occupants of the property for several years. She said Pacific Power trimmed their trees occasionally during that time but was never permitted to cut them down. For much of the past year, she and her husband rented the property to a couple from Fresno.

 Sutter Coast Hospital made a $10.8 million profit in 2014, according to a financial report released this week, despite projected losses that were expected to grip the hospital through 2018.

“Productivity monitoring in 2013 and strong labor management in 2014” were responsible for some of the gains, the performance review states, accounting for $2.6 million less paid in salaries last year compared to the year before.

AB1393 funds, which subsidize the costs of running smaller hospitals with the profits of larger ones, accounted for $7.8 million of the hospital’s revenue last year. The remaining $2.8 million was made in other ways, including some cost cutting.

LNG pipeline crossing Klamath R. OKd by feds

Federal regulators granted final environmental approval Wednesday for building a pipeline that would cross the Klamath River, transporting natural gas from the Rocky Mountains to Coos Bay for shipment to Asia.

Earlier this month the Hoopa Valley Youth Council stated their opposition to the pipeline, which would cross the Klamath River south of Klamath Falls. They urged Gov. Jerry Brown to request an environmental impact statement on behalf of the state of California. Since the impacts made on the Oregon side of the border will make their way downstream and eventually affect California water quality, the state should be in on the process, the youth argued. 

The final environmental impact statement prepared for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission found that building and operating the pipeline and a gas terminal in Coos Bay would cause some environmental damage.
