   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.

Investigators from several state and county agencies followed a lead contained in an email written by a condemned serial killer to his hometown newspaper Friday, Jan. 27, but the search for the remains of one of his victims failed.

According to a press release from the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, investigators from the San Joaquin County and Calaveras County sheriffs’ offices and the Department of Justice (DOJ) searched an area in Calaveras County in an effort to recover the remains of Cyndi Vanderheiden — a 25-year-old woman believed murdered by Loren Herzog and Wesley Shermantine in 1998. No remains were uncovered.

As you drive through Hamilton Branch you may notice an odd looking yellow vehicle parked in front of the Hamilton Branch Community Services District office. This is the district’s new amphibious vehicle, an Argo 6x6 650 HD. It should make servicing the community’s spring during the winter much easier than it has been in the past.

The new Almanor Recreation Center (ARC) in Chester has, from its early beginnings, received tremendous community support — support that continues to grow with each passing day.

The first big step in this collaboration began with the efforts of Gini Natali to form an unfunded recreation district in the Lake Almanor Basin. A diamond of the first water when it came to community advocacy, Natali had learned of the potential of funding that would come to every recognized recreational district in the state of California.
