McArthur Woman Injured


A McArthur woman received major injuries April 20 in an accident near Ingot.

The 12:35 p.m. accident, according to officer Rudd of the Highway Patrol occurred when Peggy Deatley, 60, allowed her vehicle to drift off the roadway, hitting a dirt/ rock embankment.

Rudd says it is possible that Deatley’s medical, diabetic, condition caused the accident.

She hit the embankment on the drivers side. Upon impact the Ford rolled on its top and her right hand became pinned under the roof top.

Deputies Nail Another Area Fugitive

Richard Robert Gardner, Jr., 53, of Round Mountain was arrested at 4:35 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16 at at 30327 Frisby Way in Round Mountain.

Deputies had received information from Shasta County Secret Witness that Gardner was at the location.

Deputies arrested Gardner without incident upon arrival. A subsequent probation search of the residence yielded a loaded 9mm handgun, methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia.

Gardner was transported and booked into the Shasta County Jail for an active felony warrant for narcotic sales. The bail listed on the warrant is $250,000. Gardner was recently featured as one of Shasta County’s Most Wanted. Additional charges will be submitted with the Shasta County District Attorney’s office for review. The Shasta County Sheriff’s Sergeant Quinten Johnston says he would like to thank the citizens of Shasta County for their assistance in locating the fugitive.

Burn Permits Required May 1

SUSANVILLE – Effective Thursday, May 1st, 2014 the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Lassen – Modoc – Plumas Unit will require dooryard burning permits for residential burning within Lassen, Modoc and Plumas Counties.

Burning permits are required from May to midnight June 30thfor all residential burning on State Responsibility Area Lands.

• Burning can only be done on permissive burn days. To find out if it is a permissive burn day, contact your local Air Pollution Control District (APCD).

- Lassen County – (530) 257-2876 or 257- BURN

• At midnight June 30, a burning suspension will go into effect until the end of the declared fire season or until lifted by the Unit Chief.

• Only natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings may be burned • Household garbage may NOT be burned

• Do not burn on windy days

• You cannot burn in a burn barrel unless you have received authorization from your APCD

• Burning can only be done during permissive times.

- Burn hours for Lassen County are as follows: May 1, 2014 through May 31, 2014 - Open Hours June 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014 - 5 a.m. to Noon.

Burn hours for Modoc County are as follows: May 1, 2014 through May 31,- Open Hours

June 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014 – 7 p.m. to 10 a.m.

• You must have a signed permit in your possession while you are burning and you are responsible for maintaining control of your fire at all times.

• Possession of a permit does not protect you if your burn escapes. You are still liable for any suppression costs.

• If a burn escapes your control, you should seek help immediately. Wildfires can spread very quickly. A fast response from the fire department can reduce suppression cost considerably. Remember, you may be billed for suppression costs, so the sooner you seek help the better the outcome may be.

• Simple common sense can greatly reduce the chance of an escape. If you don’t feel it’s safe to conduct a burn, then don’t.

The lack of precipitation this winter may necessitate an early burn suspension. Please keep informed about burn restrictions by visiting our website at under “Hot Topics”.
