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.

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.
