Vote postponed on property agreement

Sunday, Aug. 16, 2015 — A vote pertaining to property for the placement of a second water tank as well as issues on the relinquishment of water rights at Duck Lake with Beaty and Associates was tabled at the Monday, Aug. 3 meeting of the board of directors for the Westwood Community Services District. The board determined it needed additional information before voting.
    The district is taking the necessary steps to install a second water tank, recommended by the state of California Water Resources Control Board. The project was accepted by the Upper Feather River Regional Water Management Group, which makes it eligible for grants, therefore the district is working on the engineering aspects in order to be ready when money becomes available. The plan is to obtain grant money in the amount of $700,000 for the purchase of a million-gallon steel tank.

Possible evidence of a wolf discovered in Siskiyou County

Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015 — The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has collected evidence that suggests at least one wolf has traveled into Siskiyou County.
    Based on compelling information received earlier this year from Californians reporting they saw a large, dark-colored canid, CDFW deployed a number of remote trail cameras within southeastern Siskiyou County.
    At one location, in early May, images were captured of a large, dark-colored, lone canid, which is possibly a dispersing gray wolf. Although scat was collected in the area for genetic analysis, they yielded poor-quality DNA and results were inconclusive. Since then, no other images of a large canid have been captured at this location.

State urges vaccinations

Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015 — California Department of Public Health Director and State Health Officer Dr. Karen Smith reminds parents to make sure their children are up-to-date on required vaccinations before the school year begins.
    “Parents should put vaccinations on their back-to-school checklists,” Smith said. “Vaccinations are the best way to ensure that students are protected and to stop the spread of measles and other serious diseases.”
    Children are required to have received certain vaccinations in order to attend school or child care in California. Smith urges parents to make an appointment now with their health care provider to help protect themselves and their families.
