Water fee collection procedure and practices challenged

Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2013 — A local water user claims the process Lassen County follows in assessing and collecting watermaster service fees is "unlawful and unjust," and therefore he says his family will not pay the bill.The watermaster service fees are determined by the Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District, reported to the Lassen County Assessor's Office and then users are billed through the Lassen County Tax Collector's Office. If the fee is not paid, the tax collector processes the fee as if it is an unpaid tax bill.

   April 4 - 2013  - A rather unique and intriguing visitor recently brought his stay in California to an end.

  After more than a year of wandering through northern California, presumably in search of a mate and a new territory, a gray wolf known as OR-7 left the Golden State and returned to Oregon on March 13. OR-7 wandered throughout northeastern California but spent most of his time in Plumas and Tehama counties.

  Originally from northeastern Oregon’s Imnaha pack, OR-7 was fitted with a radio collar in February 2011 when he was just a pup. The nomadic gray wolf dispersed from his pack in the fall of that year to begin an epic walkabout.
