Events offer education in river life
The Smith River is a “salmon stronghold” and fisheries biologists plan to take it by storm this weekend.
Starting Friday with an evening of underwater video and photography of salmon spawning, it will be a weekend of free workshops and field trips all about salmon, entitled “Smith River: A Salmon Stronghold.”
In December 2005, Karen Olson testified against her boss during a local grand jury investigation.
At the time she was the second-highest-ranking prosecutor in Del Norte County and her superior was District Attorney Mike Riese.
She told the grand jury what she knew about Riese’s handling of a financial elder abuse case in which he dismissed felony charges against the defendants in exchange for more than $400,000 in restitution, $100,000 of which went toward his office’s budget.
