 Western Rivers Conservancy turns to crowdfunding to buy timberland

One of the highest-priority salmon restoration projects in Yurok Country — and probably on the West Coast — turned to crowdfunding last week to generate the last money needed for the protection of Blue Creek.

Since 2008, Western Rivers Conservancy has been raising public and private cash to purchase 47,000 acres of industrial timberland in the lower Blue Creek watershed with the intention to transfer ownership and management of the land to the Yurok Tribe.

The Save Blue Creek campaign, led by creative agency Instrument, worked with acclaimed photographers and filmmakers, including one from National Geographic, to capture aerials, close-ups and underwater shots that reflect the elements that make Blue Creek special.

McGuire, Wood to host a hearing on stalled crab season

A hearing on the delay of California crabbing season will be hosted by State Sen. Mike McGuire and Assemblymember Jim Wood Dec. 3 in Santa Rosa.

Public health concerns, oceanic conditions, impacts on the coastal fishing economy and what to expect in the coming weeks will be discussed by a panel of experts in the main room of the Steele Lane Community Center, 415 Steele Lane, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Fisheries were declared closed until further notice in early November, following an advisory issued by the California Department of Public Health warning against eating Dungeness and Rock crabs harvested off the California coast north of Santa Barbara. Harmful levels of domoic acid were detected in the crabs.

Costs saved, fugitive lost

Shirley Rush, 65, is under investigation in Del Norte County and sought on warrants from Arkansas and Missouri.
An alleged con artist wanted for decades by several states was briefly in custody in Del Norte County but slipped away from law enforcement trying to save the county some money.

The 65-year old woman identified as Shirley Rush came to Crescent City no later than September. Since then she is believed to have written more than $40,000 in bad checks, according to a press release issued Thursday by Del Norte County District Attorney Dale Trigg.

Counties in Arkansas and Missouri are willing to extradite Rush on active felony warrants for similar crimes in their states. 

Sutter case heads to private mediation

A lawsuit alleging Sutter Coast Hospital violated a contract through which it received land to build the hospital might be settled in private mediation next week.  

If a settlement is not reached, Judge Leslie C. Nichols announced during a court hearing Thursday that he is inclined to decide the case from the bench and not grant a jury trial as requested by the plaintiff, Beverly Hussey.

Hussey, widow of the man who donated land for the hospital to be built, alleges Sutter Coast’s pursuit of a Critical Access Hospital designation, which brings in higher Medicare reimbursement for rural hospitals, would degrade the hospital to a point that it would violate the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) contract that outlined how the donated land could be used.

Caltrans says Last Chance Grade fix going as quickly as possible

Last Chance Grade’s precarious placement on a sliding seaboard has the county abuzz over how to fix it fastest, while Caltrans maintains it’s doing all it can to move the project along.

“The reason I brought up the emergency status is because Caltrans hasn’t given us any answers short of declaring that,” Kurt Stremberg said at Thursday’s Del Norte Local Transportation Commission meeting.

When U.S. 101 collapsed north of Klamath in 1972, it proved fatal for both of Stremberg’s parents. To save his neighbors the heartache, Stremberg has made it his onus since then to keep the slide out from happening again.
