Leavitt Lake residents Linda and Doug Ohotto were driving by the Sands Casino in Reno when bright objects in the sky caught their attention. They thought they were UFOs, but it was just birds eating bugs in the lights.
While looking at the birds, they ran a red light and were pulled over. As they tried to explain to a Reno police officer about the birds, Linda spotted their neighbors’ Datsun GT stolen two weeks earlier. The police officer checked out the story and let the Ohotto’s go without a ticket for locating the stolen car.

Those who profit from medical marijuana cultivation and distribution should not expect a friendly welcome in Lassen County.
Lassen County’s Board of Supervisors held a public hearing, received a staff report and unanimously approved extending the moratoria prohibiting medical marijuana cultivation and dispensaries in the unincorporated areas of Lassen County for another 10 months and 15 days on Tuesday, June 15.
The board originally approved the 45-day moratoria following a study session held at Jensen Hall on Tuesday, May 11. The board also discussed the issue at its meetings on Tuesday, April 11 and Tuesday, April 27.
The public hearing was required to extend the moratoria, and the board could extend the moratoria for another year as long as the total length of time does not exceed two years.
