   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.

One way controlled trraffic remains in effect at the site of the accident. CanTrans sent a geologist to the site to assess the damage. Crews worked through the night.

A female motorist driving an older model van was killed about 3 p.m. when her van struck a boulder that apparently tumbled onto Highway 70 about three miles east of Belden,in the Feather River Canyon.

Emergency personnel first on the scene performed CPR, but were unable to revive the victim.


According to Will Farris, Feather Publishing reporter on the scene, it appeared the victim was killed on impact. He described the boulder as looking more like a slab of the mountain.

The highway is open to one-way controlled traffic.

CalTrans engineers will have to assess the stability of the hillside as well as the integrity of the road bed which is thought to be heavily damnaged.
