Wet system may bring flooding Sunday

Smith, Klamath river not expected to reach flood stage 

Del Norters should prepare for flooding on small streams and tributaries as well as in low-lying areas and roadways with poor drainage on Sunday.

After light rain Saturday and a short break in the evening, an atmospheric river is expected to bring 2-4 inches of rain in a 12-18 hour period on Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Aylward said. 

The storm could cause rock and mudslides along highways and is expected to generate wind gusts of up to 45 mph on the coast and in the mountains.

DA says hes investigating Sutter Coast

Del Norte County District Attorney Dale Trigg confirmed on Wednesday that his office has been investigating Sutter Coast Hospital “for some time” regarding potential violations of the California Unfair Competition Law. 

“The UCL is a law that is on the books to protect consumers,” said Trigg. “It is designed to make sure that businesses are acting in a fair manner, that they’re not committing fraud, they’re not doing anything unfair, misleading, or deceptive.”

Trigg would not specify details of the investigation. He said it was possible, though not necessarily certain, the investigation concerns issues of internal corporate structure, unfair competition, or deceiving the public. 

Fishing interests air Blue Creek grievances

And as if on cue here comes the largest single Powerball jackpot in history of $1.5 billion. The kind of money one could use to say, buy a presidency, or your own private island in Caribbean.

Subject of raid that led to charges against CO takes plea deal

Last week, prosecutors filed a motion to exclude evidence that might have compromised the credibility of their law enforcement witness testimony in an upcoming criminal case. 

This week, they reached an agreement with the defense to settle the case with an open plea deal. 

James Banuelos pleaded guilty Monday to felony methamphetamine possession with intent to sell and maintaining a place to sell it. In exchange for his confession, he will receive no more than three years in state prison with the possibility of probation. Two vehicles, jewelry, and a $2 bill collection seized during a March 5 raid on his residence will be returned, along with $160 stolen from his wallet by an officer assisting with the raid. 

Wild weather causes outages and local flooding

Floods, hail, flickering lights and extended outages hit Del Norte Wednesday morning as a brief storm system dumped an inch of rain during the first half of the day. 

In Crescent City, the parking lot next to McDonald’s on the 300 block of M Street was flooded around 7 a.m. The water was cleared out within four hours. 

Smith River had a heavy hail storm in the afternoon, covering another parking lot in white ice at around 5:30 p.m.

DA drops charges against juvenile in homicide case

The lead suspect in the May shooting homicide of 13-year-old Dante Romannose-Jones will see charges dismissed and be released from custody this morning in Del Norte Superior Court, according to a press release from District Attorney Dale Trigg. 

Nathan Feliz, 16, was in juvenile custody after being charged with killing Romannose-Jones by point-blank gunshot to the head during an alleged dispute over drugs in Klamath. The prosecution and defense agreed late last year to wait on the results of outstanding forensic analysis of the DNA profiles of Feliz and Romannose-Jones before proceeding with a trial later this year. 

Late last week, those results came in. The Department of Justice report “indicated forensic test results that were inconsistent with the statements of several key witnesses, many of whom had already provided inconsistent statements to law enforcement during this investigation,” said Trigg.
