More than 425,000 PG&E Customers Have Provided Updates Since June 2018




Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is reaching out to about 150,000 customers encouraging them to update their home phone number, mobile number, email and other key information so the company can contact them in advance should it become necessary to temporarily turn off power for safety this fire season.

PG&E sent emails to about 62,000 customers with incomplete contact information earlier this month. Later this week, the company will mail postcards to about 95,000 customers who have no phone number or email on file.


While PG&E has contact information from most of its more than 5 million electric customers, there are still some who have not provided it or need to update the information. In the North State, this includes 2134 customers in Butte County, 303 in Colusa County, 338 in Glenn County, 26 in Lassen County, 174 in Plumas County, 880 in Shasta County, 1228 in Sutter County, 949 in Tehama County, and 805 in Yuba County.


It is important that all customers keep their information updated so PG&E can share important wildfire safety alerts. In addition to notifying customers directly, PG&E also will provide outage updates and safety information through channels such as social media, local news, radio and


"Being prepared ahead of wildfires and other emergencies is essential to keeping our families, friends and neighbors safe," said Laurie Giammona, PG&E's Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. "We are asking each of our customers to be sure we have their latest, most up-to-date contact information so that we can do our best to reach them in advance of a potential Public Safety Power Shutoff event."


The Public Safety Power Shutoff program is one of many additional precautionary safety measures in response to the 2017 and 2018 wildfires that the company is putting in place as part of its Community Wildfire Safety Program intended to reduce wildfire threats and strengthen communities for the future.


Extreme weather threats can change quickly. PG&E's goal, dependent on weather and other factors, is to send customer alerts through automated calls, texts and emails at 48 hours, again at 24 hours, and again just prior to shutting off power.


Besides updating their contact information to prepare for Public Safety Power Shutoffs, PG&E encourages customers to do the following:

·         Have an emergency plan for wildfires and discuss it with your friends, family and neighbors;

·         Update or create a go bag or 72-hour kit that can be used if you need to evacuate; and

·         Clear defensible space around your home or business.

·         Visit for more information about how to prepare.


PG&E thanks the 425,000 customers who have taken action to ensure they will receive its wildfire safety alerts since June 1, 2018. For customers who have not yet confirmed or updated their contact information, PG&E strongly encourages everyone to do so by visiting or by calling the PG&E contact center at 1-866-743-6589.

Olivehurst, CA

suspect 8 14 19

On 8/13/2019, Yuba County Sheriff Detectives arrested 18-year-old Alexis Algarin of Marysville for
attempted murder and firing a gun into an inhabited vehicle. Algarin was identified as a suspect in the
shooting of an occupied car traveling on Arboga Rd near Melody Rd in Olivehurst around 6pm on 8/9/19.
Algarin allegedly fired multiple rounds at the victim vehicle from the car he was riding in, after following
the victim around Olivehurst in the minutes before the shooting. The victim vehicle was struck by gunfire,
but none of the three occupants were injured.


Algarin and the victim were acquainted with each other. The shooting is suspected to be gang motivated,
and remains under active investigation.

Sutter County, Ca.


                Twenty 10-foot by 16-foot wooden prefabricated units have been ordered that will serve as the first general homeless population emergency shelter in Sutter County.

                The units, which are expected to arrive and be assembled in mid-August, will house up to 40 homeless individuals who agree to utilize services provided by several organizations, with the goal of becoming permanently housed. The shelter will be established on county property at 1965 Live Oak Boulevard, behind the Sutter-Yuba Behavioral Health Services building.

                The shelter is expected to open in September. County officials are finalizing discussions with the Salvation Army to provide management of the facility. The Salvation Army operates The Depot homeless shelter and drug treatment program in Marysville, and recently opened additional housing in Linda for individuals who were made homeless by the Camp Fire.

                Those who access the emergency shelter will be expected to stay no longer than 90 days and to be working toward the goal of acquiring transitional and permanent housing while utilizing the emergency shelter.

                The shelter will be modeled on Yuba County’s 14 Forward concept of tiny units coupled with access to services on 14th Street in Marysville. That program has received statewide recognition as an example of practical emergency shelter.

                Sutter County has scheduled a community meeting at 6 p.m. on August 22 at the Sutter County Veteran’s Hall, 1425 Veteran’s Memorial Circle, Yuba City, to provide operational details of the emergency shelter.

                Until recently, Sutter County has been under a federal court injunction blocking enforcement of an ordinance prohibiting camping on Sutter County property, including county-owned property along the Feather River. The injunction applied to a specific no-camping ordinance adopted by the Sutter County Board of Supervisors in 2017. The injunction was lifted after the Board repealed that specific ordinance, but an older ordinance also addressing where people can or can’t camp remains in place.

                Although the injunction has been lifted, local law enforcement agencies cannot cite or arrest individuals for sleeping on public property if there is no alternative location for them to sleep, according to a U.S. District Court of Appeals ruling in 2018. In essence, the court said, it is a violation of the U.S. Constitution for local government agencies to make homelessness a crime. While the court did not require local government agencies to provide shelter, it made it clear that in the absence of adequate shelter beds, local governments cannot remove homeless individuals from public rights of way.

                Wednesday, August 7, the Sutter County Board of Supervisors met in special session at Yuba City Hall with the Yuba City Council for the second session of a workshop on homelessness. During the first session in late May, supervisors and council members heard presentations on the extent of homelessness, efforts to assist those homeless individuals who are seeking help, and the court rulings which prevent enforcement of the no-camping ordinance in Sutter County.

Now is the time to head to the ocean for those who enjoy this kind of sport. Halibut, salmon and rockfish are the name of the game at this time in San Francisco Bay. Just about any marina is scoring with party boats returning full of fish. Hot spots last week was out of Berkeley and  Emeryville.

As predicted, the Barge Hole on the Sacramento River proved to be a good bet on the opening day and still continues to produce quality salmon.

It appears this time of year is the time to go after catfish. Just about anywhere this fish lives is producing fish at this time which includes Collins Lake. The cats are reported to be suckers for just about any bait thrown at them, including power bait and worms. Of course, the big ones like the stink baits and chicken guts.

Lake Tahoe is still putting out some nice mackinaw lake trout and mixed in is limits of kokanee land locked salmon. The trout are holding in water between 150 and 180 feet and are being caught jigging and trolling with live minnows. Kokanee are running from 13 to 15 inches and some lake trout up to 10 pounds have been reported.

We hear from Eagle Lake near Susanville. This natural lake is still producing some nice eagle lake trout at this time. In fact, the lake has been cooperating all year. The trout have moved deep and are reported to be found in 25 to 40 feet of water. Drifting night crawlers is productive as well as lures which imitate the native fish in the lake such as the tule chub minnow. A good bet is always spoons and spinners in sliver color.

Ice House Reservoir and Union Valley Reservoir, both located in El Dorado County, received planted trout last weekend. According to a good source we are told some big spawners were also dropped in Ice House Reservoir along with the usual plant.

Englebright Reservoir located above Marysville is overrun with skiers, wave runners and so on. Best to stay away from the fishing for a while.

Bullard’s Bar Reservoir is still a hot spot in the North State for kokanee salmon. Best bet for lots of action is at the dam. Be prepared to share this spot with lots of boats.

Closing thought: “No matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you can always turn around.”

The Bolt Tool Museum , 1650 Broderick Street, Oroville, Ca. 95965,  is pleased to announce that Rod Hisken will make a presentation on Vintage Tractors. Mr. Hisken is a skilled public presenter and has filled

the room for several years with his entertaining and informative style.

These lectures help to keep the Museum in operation and his he is appreciated.

Rare John Deere's and Fabulous Fords have been past efforts and this year the focus will be Farmin' with Farmalls. Several red tractor collectors from Northern California have been invited to show their restored gems and will be on display for the public. Their owners will be present to answer questions and share knowledge about the restoration processes.

bolt tool osami tractor

Mr. Hisken will bring the famous Osumi  tractor. This tractor was restored by a young man who graduated from the Wheatland High School Farm Mechanic Program . It was purchased by David Osumi in 1948 from the newly founded Valley Truck and Tractor when they began as an International dealer. It is believed that the tractor was sold by Henry Miller to David . This was the first tractor that David bought for his tomato  farming business after he returned from internment with his family. Everything was gone! His hard work and focus is a testament of the belief to moving on in this great country of ours. Yes, we have made mistakes ,but there is still no other place in the world like the United States.


You may have driven past the Museum for years without stopping and going in to view the famous collection and research that Mr. Bud Bolt has achieved . It is indeed a marvel to explore and you will wonder why you didn't come sooner. People from all over the world have come and visited. Their appreciation has generated numerous tools from several continents.


Hope to see you at the Bolt Tool Museum on August 17 at 10:00 AM


Livestock owners look for backup water sources

The potential for power outages intended to prevent wildfires has livestock owners working to be sure they can provide water for their animals. Farmers and ranchers who use electric pumps for livestock water say they're looking for generators and other backup systems. A University of California farm advisor says power outages could be especially troublesome for small-scale livestock owners. Utilities provide information about backup generation resources and vendors.  

Many rural roads remain inadequate

Trucks carry 70% of farm and food products, making rural roads crucial to the agricultural economy. Analysis by the American Farm Bureau Federation indicates many rural roads and bridges lack the capacity to accommodate growing freight travel. Congress is working on a new transportation bill. A study released this spring by a national research group rated nearly one-third of California's rural roads as in poor condition.  


USDA tracks fruit, vegetable affordability

For less than $3 a day, Americans can purchase enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. The U.S. Department of Agriculture calculated costs based on retail prices and a number of fruit and vegetable combinations. Guidelines encourage Americans to eat two cups of fruit and two-and-a-half cups of vegetables each day--but USDA surveys indicate most people fall short of those recommendations.


Research on cilantro may improve treatment for seizures

Cilantro has been used in traditional medicine to treat against seizures, and University of California research has found the underlying action that allows the herb to have that effect. Scientists at UC Irvine say this new understanding may lead to improvement in treatments for seizures. The study identified a particular component of cilantro that reduced what the lead researcher called "cellular excitability."  

foster quilt

At the most recent Valley Quilt Guild meeting, 117 quilts were given to foster children.  Diana Adams, Program Specialist for Foster Kinship Care Education at Yuba College  received the quilts on behalf of foster children in our counties.  She explained about her program and brought thank you notes from children who had received quilts in the past.



The Valley Quilt Guild has a long history in the community of providing quilts for foster children. The non profit organization was established in 1982 and currently has about 150 members.  The purpose of the organization is to grow quilting by providing educational and fun activities related to quilting and to encourage community service by participating in quilt related projects such as making quilts for foster kids.


The group meets monthly, except November, and welcomes anyone interested in quilting, whether beginner or proficient quilter. Check the website: for further information.

The Yuba Water Agency additionally approved a cash-flow loan for the Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority to help advance the Goldfields levee project. 

The $2 million loan will provide funding to move forward with the acquisition of approximately 108-acres of land needed for the project. 

Total cost for the land acquisition is approximately $7.7 million and the California Department of Water Resources has agreed to cover $5.8 million of that cost, with Three Rivers paying the remainder. Due to the uncertainty of when the state funding will become available, Yuba Water has agreed to provide a bridge loan to Three Rivers to keep the project on schedule. 

The project will reduce flood risk for properties within Reclamation District 784’s service area, and will meet the state’s 200-year levee standards, meaning there is a 1-in-200 chance in any given year that a storm could overwhelm the system. 

Three Rivers has agreed to reimburse Yuba Water Agency by 2020.

Yuba Water’s loan to Three Rivers is part of the agency’s long-standing mission to reduce flood risk for Yuba County. In prior years, Yuba Water has assisted Three Rivers with policy, technical and financial aid, including carrying the local cost-share for the construction of the Feather River Setback Levee. Yuba Water is repaying $5.5 million per year for that project, which was part of the levee repairs and improvements completed under the authority of the federal Yuba River Basin Flood Damage Reduction Project.

Yuba Water is able to make these financial contributions to support projects within its mission areas for the benefit of the people of Yuba County. The agency’s missions include reducing flood risk, ensuring a sustainable water supply, hydropower generation, fish habitat enhancement and recreation at New Bullards Bar.

            A day in the life of Rick Dalton, a waning actor and his stunt double, Cliff Booth. Their escapades paint a picture of the less washed times of Hollywood. Rick struggles in his acting career and Cliff just goes with the flow. All the while their neighbors’ lives are peppered through the film to remind us of the impending peril.

            Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood, earns one out of five, Dirty Footed Monkeys. The acting is better than most Quentin Tarantino movies. The actors deliver their lines in a more natural way, not in the usual Tarantino style, with declarative statements as if every word uttered from their lips are the most important words spoken by human tongue. The production value itself was great and a lot of attention to detail went into it. The pace of the film was glacially slow with small calvings of plot and action spread too thin to keep one interested. I had the urge to walk out, but alas I persevered to the very end and it was worth it. The last half hour of the movie contained a satisfying ending that turned one monkey from the brink of abandoning ship.

Dear Friend,


Lydia’s House is a women’s discipleship program in the Yuba/Sutter area. Women come into our residential program for a period of nine to twelve months receiving love, support, healing of the body, mind, and spirit. We offer a clean, sober and nicotine free environment where we minister to our residents through biblical counseling, community work, classes, groups, individual mentoring and guidance as they develop a firm foundation becoming disciples of Jesus Christ.

Lydia’s House has been serving the community and helping women for three blessed years now. We have had the opportunity to touch the lives of so many women through our program and endeavor to expand and grow as the Lord leads us. However, we cannot do this alone. Facing the painful cycle of addiction in our community and families means we need to come together to bring about change. Change is what we do at Lydia’s House.

We currently have six women residing in our home and we have 3 graduates continuing in our aftercare program. On average, it costs $1100 monthly per woman in residence at Lydia’s House. Please consider donating to help reduce and alleviate the burden of cost for this amazing ministry.

Lydia’s House was founded through ministry at The Bride Church in Yuba City. Currently we are operating under the nonprofit status at The Bride Church. We graciously thank you, if you have already chosen to partner with us in our changing lives ministry. We are only able to do what we do because of you. We strive to transform hearts, renew minds and change each and every life that walks through our doors.

How can you help? First and foremost, we need your prayers as we walk with these women from brokenness to freedom. We also desperately need financial support to continue blessing and changing lives and hopefully expanding our program. We are also looking for donations for our raffle and auction at our upcoming fundraisers. We thank you. We will be praying for you and your business throughout the year in thanks for your generosity and love.

 Yuba Sutter Arts is pleased to announce the return of Idle Fret to its Burrows Theater in Marysville.  Idle Fret performs a broad repertoire of original compositions and covers of jazz standards. They embrace multiple genres from Swing to Smooth Jazz to Latin flavored tunes.  The concert will be held on Friday, August 23rd at 7:30pm at 630 E Street in Marysville.  General admission tickets are $10 and $5 for students 18 and under.  Tickets are available at or by calling 742-ARTS (2787). Plenty of free parking is available on the side streets and in the adjacent Umpqua Bank and Bank of America parking lots. 


idle fret Jim Achilles 2This concert will be bittersweet as it will be Jim’s last performance in the area. He and his family are moving to Medford as he becomes the first full-time Oregon Area Director for Joni and Friends International, a non-profit ministry that serves individuals and families affected by disability. Jim will be working with a team of staff and volunteers orchestrating family retreats, conferences, training events, special programs, and providing resources for churches with disability ministries. And yes, he expects to get involved in the local music scene after they get settled.


Jim established Idle Fret not long after he and his family moved to Yuba-Sutter as an outlet for his love of composing and performing a wide variety of jazz styles. Taking advantage of some local connections with gifted musicians, Jim assembled the band’s current line-up which features a cool acoustic blend of sax, flute, and guitar.

The group has received great reviews over the years since its inception.  The members of Idle Fret include Jim Achilles (Guitar and trombone), Robert Achilles (Keyboards), David Coe (Winds), Judy Coe (Flute), David Bole (Bass) and Ken Horton (Drums).  The musicians play in diverse groups including the Sierra Nevada Winds, the Auburn Symphony, the Yuba Sutter Symphony, and various pit orchestras throughout Northern California.

When asked why playing jazz together was such a rewarding experience, Achilles responded, “Jazz gives everyone in the group the freedom to be both who they are as individuals and who we are as a group. It is the perfect blend of corporate connection and individual expression. And as we have fun experiencing it – always different, each performance – the audience has fun hearing it. You’re likely to see a lot of smiles in the group during the show, smiles that say, ‘Wow, we’ve never done it that way before! And it was cool!’”

Jim and Idle Fret promise an evening of great songs and performances that display unique creativity and high emotional impact—that, and stuff that’s just plain fun and entertaining.  Come support live music in the community and enjoy these very gifted musicians.  

Colusa, Sutter and Yolo County


The month of August is Child Support Awareness Month. Colusa, Sutter and Yolo County Child Support Services want to remind parents they are among the 49 child support agencies across the state that offer many services to assist parents in supporting their children.


Research conducted statewide in 2017 revealed that many California parents, both outside the Child Support Program and participating in it, were unaware of programs available for their benefit through Child Support Services.

If a parent wants to get a court order for either financial or medical support, Child Support Services can help. Child Support Services can also enforce existing court orders for support and help keep track of payments to provide peace of mind for all. Services are free for parents enrolled in the Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) Program, all others pay only a $25 annual fee.


“The statewide theme for this year’s Child Support Awareness Month is “You are there for them, we’ll be there for you”; and we’d like for parents in Colusa, Sutter and Yolo Counties to know that this is certainly the case” said Natalie Dillon, Director of the three county child support agencies. “One of our goals is to help parents by making what can be a complicated or difficult situation easier to navigate.”

Child support payments provide a measure of financial stability for families and create better outcomes for children. It can be complicated, but the employees at Child Support Services are ready to help.
