Caltrans annual litter day is tomorrow

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 2 will join 11 other Caltrans districts as they take part in the nationwide Litter Clean-Up Day on Thursday, April 23.

District 2 spent more than $750,000 on cleanup and trash removal along our highways last year. Statewide, Caltrans workers collected about 3,000 cubic yards of trash throughout the state, enough to fill nearly 21,000 large garbage bags.

“You won’t see a lot of garbage in our district any day of the week and we take pride in that,” said District 2 Maintenance Manager Steve Hardie. “We have three dedicated maintenance crews responsible for keeping our highways litter-free on a regular basis.”

Thunderstorm risks increase today and tomorrow

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 — According to the National Weather Service in Reno, local morning weather balloon data and forecast simulations are all pointing toward an active thunderstorm day this afternoon/evening Tuesday, April 21, and likely again tomorrow Wednesday, April 22.

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are forecast to develop by early afternoon today lasting into the early evening hours. This is likely to happen again tomorrow, but if we have too much cloud cover tomorrow our thunderstorm threat would be reduced. For both days, the highest odds of storms are over the high terrain of the Sierra and far western Nevada.

Local author explores vampire genre with a new twist

Spiesvs

Local author Aaron C. Richards shows off his first novel, “Spies Vs. Monsters,” during a recent book signing. The novel, which offers a modern twist on the old vampire stories, is on sale at Margie’s Book Nook in Susanville.

Sunday, April 26, 2015 — While Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” written in 1897, may be the classic vampire tale, the bloodsucking undead actually made their first appearance in 18th century poetry and then later in prose in “The Vampyre” by John Polidori, written in 1819. Since then vampire stories seemingly popped up everywhere — even today in movies and on television. And let’s not forget the whole chupacabra thing, either.

But beware — local readers had better be very careful when they wander through Margie’s Book Nook because “Spies vs. Monsters” lurks on the bookshelves — the first novel by Susanville’s Aaron C. Richards, one that explores the old vampire genre with a new and modern twist.
