   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

Free Entrance to Lassen Volcanic National Park August 14 and 15

Lassen Volcanic National Park will waive entrance fees on August 14 and 15 along with other national parks throughout the country. “We hope many local community members will have a chance to visit their nearby national park during this time,” stated Superintendent Darlene M. Koontz. The Park Service wants people to see that national parks are places for everyone to have fun, reconnect with nature and history, and build a sense of ownership and stewardship for these areas and the environment. This weekend will be in addition to the fee-free days scheduled for National Public Lands Day, September 26, and Veterans Day, November 11.

 

Lassen Volcanic National Park offers over 150 miles of hiking trails which range in difficulty from a strenuous seven mile round-trip hike up Brokeoff Mountain to a gentle two mile stroll around Manzanita Lake. For sheer beauty and rugged mountain scenery the Brokeoff Trail is one of the best in the park. The Brokeoff Mountain Trail climbs steadily through open meadows and forest for two miles and then through scattered hemlocks and finally above timberline to the top. At the west end of the mountain just before the last half-mile of the climb, there is a good view of Mt. Shasta. From the top there are spectacular views of the surrounding mountain scenery. Each trail in Lassen has its own unique beauty for visitors to discover.

 

Some park trails may still have lingering snow. Please stay on defined pathways through snowfields. Sturdy hiking boots and trekking poles are advised. Be prepared for rapidly changing conditions by carrying high energy food, and plenty of water and by dressing in layers. For more information, visit the park website at www.nps.gov/lavo or call (530) 595-4480.
