Sheriff appreciates public’s assistance

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 — Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon expressed his appreciation for all the information the public has provided regarding the investigation into the death of veterinarian Richard Meinert.

“We’ve gotten a great deal of information and the main thing I want them to know is, please keep it coming. If you know anything call us because we’re following up on everything. It’s too bad in some ways, obviously, that we can’t report back to the people on what we’re doing, but we have to look out for the integrity of the investigation first and foremost,” Growdon said. “Ultimately between that and the forensic analysis and everything else, hopefully we can determine what truly happened there and what the facts are.”

Forest to host special guests stock that serve

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 — Lassen National Forest will have special guests for the fair parade this year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

Two strings of Region 5 Packers, one from the Inyo and one from Shasta National Forest, are coming to the parade. Each string will have six animals carrying packed loads. Traditional tools continue to be used in wilderness areas because no mechanical equipment is allowed. Thus, mules continue to be the “fleet” of wilderness areas. The Shasta string is all matching mules and is quite a sight to see, even if you’re not horse person.
