Linda, Ca
 
 
Regional SWAT Team, took a barricaded suspect into custody after a 3-hour-standoff following a pursuit
involving a stolen vehicle from Sutter County. The suspect was identified as 24-year-old Austin Branch of
Olivehurst.
 
The incident began about 9:00 a.m. when a deputy on patrol attempted a traffic stop on a stolen vehicle
traveling eastbound on N Beale Road near Avondale Avenue in East Linda. The driver initially failed to
yield and turned onto Lowe Avenue before stopping in the 5900 block, when a male passenger exited the
vehicle and fled on foot into an apartment complex. Deputies quickly established a perimeter around the
area where the suspect was last seen and believed to be hiding. Because the stolen vehicle was reportedly
taken during an armed carjacking in Sutter County and the suspect considered potentially armed and
dangerous, the SWAT team was called to assist.
 
At approximately noon the SWAT team began a search of the apartment and made announcements that a
Sheriff K9 would be deployed. It was then that Branch emerged from a rear patio closet and was taken into
custody without further incident. He was turned over to the custody of Sutter County Sheriff’s Office.

The investigation began when Officers were dispatched to the 600 Block of 11th St for a burglary in progress.  Officers arrived on scene and contacted the homeowner who advised he witnessed an unknown male inside his garage that did not belong there.  The homeowner said he was the only person that lived at this residence and no one had permission to be inside.

 

Officer’s made entry into the garage and observed a male subject inside of the homeowner’s vehicle.  Weiss forced entry to gain access into the vehicle by shattering a window. Officer’s noticed shattered glass on the ground and observed that the passenger window to the vehicle was broken.  Officer’s ordered the male out of the vehicle and took him into custody.  The male was identified through his California Driver’s License as Shaun Weiss. 

 

Weiss displayed symptoms of being under the influence of methamphetamine and said he did not reside at this residence.  Weiss also said the vehicle he was filtering through was not his.  

Weiss was booked into the Yuba County Jail for being under the influence of methamphetamine 11550 H&S, and residential burglary 459 PC, and is being held on $52,500 bail.

 The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play written by Eve Ensler which was developed and premiered in New York in the mid-90s.  Seen previously in Yuba-Sutter back in 2007, the play is a series of monologues performed by women.  All of them address how women view their vaginas - some humorous and some serious.  The new production will be under the direction of Janet Frye who directed the 2007 production. 

An outgrowth of the play is the creation of the V-Day organization, a global movement to end violence against all women and girls.  In the week’s just before and immediately following Valentine’s Day, royalty free productions of The Vagina Monologues are allowed as fundraisers to support work to end violence against women and to provide support for women’s shelters and rape crisis centers.  The performance partner agency and beneficiary will be Casa de Esperanza, the women's shelter in Yuba City.  Casa de Esperanza offers 24-hour crisis line and intervention and 24-hour intake for survivors of partner abuse, sexual assault and their children.

 

The Vagina Monologues explores consensual and nonconsensual sexual experiences, body image, genital mutilation, direct and indirect encounters with reproduction, vaginal care, menstrual periods, sex work, and several other topics through the eyes of women with various ages, races, sexualities, and other differences.  Controversial from its earliest performances, the play has also been called, “the most important piece of political theater of the last decade,” and “an hour of theater [with worldwide impact].”  Considering the social impact of the “Me Too” movement and ongoing abuse and gender equality issues, it seemed like the right time to create a revival and revisit these important topics.

 

The cast includes Carmen Smith, Janet Frye, Gail Carter, Kelly Barber Cunningham, Ruby Cunningham, Lisa Kirchner and other distinguished local performers.  Janet is directing and Lisa is producer and also a Casa de Esperanza board member.

 

All performances will be at the Burrows Theater at Yuba Sutter Arts, 630 E Street in Marysville. Show times are February 7 and 8 at 7pm and February 9 at 2pm. General admission is $20.

 

Tickets may be purchased online at yubasutterarts.org or in person at Yuba Sutter Arts, 624 E Street, Wednesday through Friday from 11-4.  Plenty of free parking is available on the adjacent streets and in the nearby Umpqua Bank and Bank of America parking lots.

Please come out and support this important cause and the performers who have spent countless hours putting together this production.

honor Mural Painting of Guru Nanak Join the Sikh Community of Yuba-Sutter in collaboration with the Yuba Sutter Arts Council for a special event in honor of the life of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. Guru Nanak (April 15, 1469 - September 22, 1539) was the founder of Sikhism and the first of ten Sikh Gurus.  His birth is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Kartik Pooranmashi, the full-moon day in the month of Katak, the eighth month of the Nanakshahi calendar.

 

During his lifetime, Nanak travelled far and wide teaching people the message of one God who dwells in every one of His creations and constitutes the eternal Truth.  He set up a unique spiritual, social, and political platform based on equality, fraternal love, goodness, and virtue.

 

Nanak's words are registered in the form of 974 poetic hymns in the holy text of Sikhism, the Guru Granth Sahib, with some of the major prayers being the Japji Sahib, the Asa di Var and the Sidh-Gosht. It is part of Sikh religious belief that the spirit of Nanak's sanctity, divinity and religious authority descended upon each of the nine subsequent Gurus when the Guruship was devolved on to them.

 

The fundamental beliefs of Sikhism, articulated in the sacred scripture Guru Granth Sahib, include faith and meditation on the name of the one creator, unity of all humankind, engaging in selfless service, striving for social justice for the benefit and prosperity of all, and honest conduct and livelihood while living a domestic life.  The Guru Granth Sahib is worshipped as the Supreme Authority of Sikhism and is considered the eleventh and final guru of Sikhism.

 

The free celebration and presentation will be held at the Burrows Theater at Yuba Sutter Arts, 630 E Street in Marysville on Saturday, January 30th.  Doors open at 6:00 and refreshments will be available.

 

Plenty of free parking is available on the adjacent streets and in the nearby Umpqua Bank and Bank of America parking lots.

Sacramento. Ca.

Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City) and Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), who represent the area devastated by last year’s Camp Fire, introduced legislation that will help prevent future wildfires and utility power shutoff events.  AB 1941 and AB 1942 would direct additional funding into utility infrastructure upgrades and forest fuel reduction projects – two of the primary factors of catastrophic wildfires and power shutoff events.

“PG&E needs to get back to the basics of providing safe and reliable power,” said Gallagher. “There is no doubt that PG&E’s mismanagement is the primary culprit in these devastating fires and PSPS events. But policies coming out of the State Capitol that distract from these primary objectives only make matters worse.”

Senator Nielsen said, “Power shutoffs are unacceptable. Too many lives were interrupted; many people went without pay. PG&E executives need to be held accountable.”

PG&E is currently spending roughly $2.4 billion annually to uphold a legislative mandate to buy renewable power. At the same time, the company spent only $1.5 billion to update its century old infrastructure in 2017.  A century-old transmission tower was cited as the ignition source of the Camp Fire, and a utility tower reportedly may also be the source of the Kincade Fire.

 AB 1941 will temporarily pause the state’s renewable power mandates until infrastructure and vegetation management conditions are improved. The legislation will require that savings from this temporary relief may only be used by Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) to harden the grid and update decaying infrastructure. Also during this time, and any proposed bonuses and salary increases for executives would be prohibited.

 AB 1942 will appropriate $330 million from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund for forest and fire prevention programs and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by uncontrolled wildfires. Scott Stephens, a professor of fire science at the University of California, Berkeley estimates that 20% to 25% of the wildfire damage resulted from climate change, and "75% is the way we manage lands and develop our landscape."

 The independent Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO) determined that forestry management is one of the most cost effective ways to reduce carbon emissions . In addition to the LAO, the San Francisco Chronicle recently opined this would be a better use of cap and trade funds.

California IOUs have already met their goals of reaching 33% renewable solar and wind energy and PG&E is already producing 85% of its power from renewable and carbon-free sources. The lawmakers noted that every dollar spent on the additional cost of renewable energy is one dollar that is not available to be spent on vegetation management, line insulation, undergrounding, and

The North State lawmakers noted that California is moving backward on its carbon reduction due to recent wildfires. Last year’s fires generated 45 million metric tons of carbon - more than nine times California’s combined reductions achieved in 2016 and 2017.

“California must get smarter about its climate goals. Century-old infrastructure, tinderbox forests and PSPS events are unacceptable. Renewable energy mandates that take away from addressing these issues while fires continue to burn are intolerable. With our plan, we can do better on carbon reduction and combating catastrophic fire,” Gallagher concluded

new reclamation

 

Following the December retirement of Steve Fordice, Patrick Meagher was selected to serve as the new General Manager for Reclamation District 784, which is located in Yuba County.  Mr. Meagher has worked for RD 784 since 2011, serving as the District’s Field Superintendent. Mr. Fordice retired December 31 after serving in the position for 12 years. 

 

After graduating from Yuba City High School, Mr. Meagher immediately entered the construction trades where he worked for local area builders until becoming a licensed contractor himself. He then went on working for Sacramento area commercial and industrial contractors serving in various leadership roles over the years until returning to the Yuba/Sutter area to work for a local developer for nearly 10 years as a superintendent, project manager, and estimator. 

 

During his tenure as Superintendent with RD 784, he attended annual DWR Flood Fight Training classes, the Yuba County Supervisory Development Academy, and the ICS/NIMS/SEMS emergency training course at Yuba College. In further preparation to take on his predecessor’s position, he also attended the Special District Leadership Academy, Financial Management For Special Districts, and General Manager’s Leadership Summit, all through the California Special District Association continuing education program. 

 

RD 784 was established in May 1908, and operates under the authority of the State of California’s Central Valley Flood Protection Board and the Department of Water Resources. RD 784 operates and maintains over 33 miles of levees, more than 60 miles of internal drainage canals, and ten pumping stations. 

 

Meagher started his new position on January 1 and will oversee all day to day operations within the District.

Born in Sacramento and raised in Sutter county, MADELYNE JOAN TEMPLETON grew up with a deep desire to draw and paint. As a Yuba City High School student, she participated in summer art programs at CSSA Cal Arts in Valencia, San Francisco Art Institute, and CCA California College of the Arts on scholarships. Madelyne received three degrees from Yuba College in Art, Art and Humanities, and Commercial Art. In 2017 she graduated from California State University, Sacramento, with a B.A. degree in Studio Art. Madelyne is a full-time freelance artist and muralist who has won numerous art awards and has been in several art exhibitions up and down California. Her work adorns utility boxes in Marysville and Yuba City. She is currently commissioned to paint murals across the state beautifying the landscape for communities to enjoy. Her striking artistry is both vivid and complex.

 

Three years ago JOE BERRY came into woodworking after satisfying a years-long itch to try his hand at turning wood. He purchased a lathe, some tools, and a few blocks of wood...and the rest is history. He began by making a few simple bowls, but later his work evolved to include the infinite variations of segmented turning and epoxy inlays of various shapes and uses. Joe makes his pieces with the goal of providing utility, while meeting the challenge of trying something new. His beautiful, inspired work is pure perfection.

 

The Theater Art Gallery is open every week, Thursday through Saturday, from noon to 5:00 pm, and Wednesday by appointment. Call 908-5704 or 329-1733. Our friendly staff welcome you and admission is always free.

 Every two seconds, someone needs blood. Patients depend on the ongoing generosity of volunteer blood donors for the blood transfusions they need. Vitalant (formerly BloodSource), which serves local hospitals, had 21,000 fewer donations than needed over the holidays. There is a critical shortage of blood.

 

Local residents will have the opportunity to save lives by donating blood during the Vitalant Winter Classic Blood Drive on Saturday, January 25th in Chico, Redding and Yuba City.   During the event, donors will receive a Vitalant branded hat, scarf and glove set, as well as hot cocoa and refreshments. 

 

Participants can also enter to win a trip to Hawaii, Mexico or Disneyland*.  

 

“This is a day when the community comes together to help save lives,” said Joe Ayer, Senior Manager of Recruitment at Vitalant. “Blood on the shelf helps patients every day—for traumas, cancer treatments and critical transfusions—and enables us to be ready if disaster strikes.”

The Yuba City Police Department is reminding fans attending Super Bowl watch parties to get a safe ride home after the game.


“If you plan on drinking, plan for a ride home with a sober driver,” Yuba City Police Department, Sgt. Kim Slade said. “Whether your team wins or loses, you’ll always get the ‘W’ by not drinking and driving.”


Super Bowl LIV falls on Sunday, Feb 2, and the Yuba City Police Department will increase patrols Feb. 2 ready to flag those suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
The Yuba City Police Department reminds drivers that driving under the influence of anything that impairs is illegal, including prescriptions, over the counter or illicit drugs and marijuana. If you take prescription drugs, be mindful of side effects, especially if there is a driving or operating machinery warning on the label.


If you’re hosting a watch party, be a team player and have plenty of snacks and non-alcoholic drinks available for designated sober drivers. If a designated sober driver decides to have a drink, make sure someone else who hasn’t been drinking is available to come pick everyone up. Anyone who sees a drunk driver should call 911.


Walking to a bar or party? Walking impaired can also be dangerous, so have someone who is sober walk home with you.


No matter who you are rooting for on Super Bowl Sunday, we are all on the same team when the game ends so remember to go safely.


Funding for Super Bowl Sunday enforcement is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Marysville, CA

 

On Monday, January 13th, 2020, the Marysville Police Department received an anonymous crime tip of a man driving a maroon colored Cadillac in the east Marysville area.  The man, described as a Hispanic male, was reportedly speeding on streets and brandishing a gun.  The unknown reporting party described that the driver “seemed very unstable.” 

 

The above information was disseminated out to patrol officers, who conducted extensive checks of the east Marysville area with negative results. 

 

Jeremy Stover

On the morning of Thursday, January 16, Marysville police officers arrested twenty-nine-year-old Jeremy William Stover, a Marysville resident, in connection with the crime tip.  Stover was arrested out of a maroon colored 1994 Cadillac, located at an apartment complex in the 100 block of East 13th Street in Marysville. 

 

The arrest stemmed from two separate calls for service on the morning of Thursday, January 16th.  At approximately 5:40 a.m., two reporting parties called the Marysville Police Department to report gunshots heard in the 800 block of H Street.  One reporting party told an MPD dispatcher they observed an older model, maroon colored Cadillac leaving the area at a high rate of speed.  Officers immediately searched the surrounding areas. 

 

 

At approximately 6:09 a.m., an officer spotted a 1994 maroon colored Cadillac, parked in a parking lot of an apartment complex, located in the 100 block of East 13th Street.  The officer saw that the Cadillac was occupied by a driver (Stover) and a female passenger.  At least two Hispanic males standing outside the Cadillac, immediately fled the area on foot upon seeing an officer.   

Officers initiated a high-risk enforcement stop and detained Stover and his female passenger out of the Cadillac.  Officers learned that Stover was wanted on two warrants and was in violation of his parole.  During a search of the Cadillac, officers discovered an airsoft handgun that had the resemblance of a real handgun.  Officers also discovered nearly fourteen pounds of marijuana in the Cadillac.  Stover was found in possession of other drug paraphernalia items, including a hypodermic needle.  Stover was booked into the Yuba County Jail.
