Sunday, July 5, 2015 — Based on records and data kept by one local resident, Eagle Lake’s water level will drop to a historic low this summer.
    Doc Bateson measured the water level at 5,091.83 feet on June 20, which he said is down four inches from three weeks ago in May.
    “If it continues at that rate, it will break that all-time record by Aug. 5,” he said.

High school adds new protocol

Sunday, July 5, 2015 — The Lassen Union High School District has added new protocol after a substitute teacher complained about not being paid in a timely manner.
    Katie Anderson, a 2010 graduate of Lassen High School, recently moved home to start studying for upcoming medical school entrance exams and began substitute teaching in Feb. 26, at Lassen High School.
    She said, “I understand teaching can be very difficult and substitute teaching can be impacted by many variables. I understand my lack of teaching experience, my age and being a recent college student would create challenges, what I did not anticipate was the greatest challenge would be receiving a paycheck.”

CDFW begins trout removal at Gold Lake

Saturday, July 4, 2015 — State biologists began removing trout from Gold Lake in the Bucks Lake Wilderness last week.
    Kevin Thomas, a California Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist who is overseeing the project, said about 120 brook trout were removed with gill nets in the first two days.
    The CDFW plans to spend the next two summers pulling trout out of the small alpine lake northwest of Meadow Valley. The biologists’ goal is to eradicate the lake’s trout population in hope the endangered mountain yellow-legged frog will repopulate the area.
    Trout, which CDFW does not consider native to the lake, are one of the tiny amphibian’s main predators.
