Woman Killed
ROUND MOUNTAIN — Tailgating may possibly have been a factor in the Wednesday crash that caused the death of a Redding woman.

According to CHP Officer King, at approximately 8:10 a.m. A Freightliner loaded with produce and driven westbound by Luis Carmarena, 28, of Yakima, Washington, was traveling at approximately 55 mph entered a right curve on Highway 299 “following closely” behind another tractor trailer combination. As he entered the curve he allowed his vehicle to cross over the double yellow lines and into the eastbound lane. His freightliner collided with the guardrail as it began to flip over on its left side.

As it flipped over it collided and landed on top of an eastbound 2008 GMC 2500 Sierra driven by Stacy Clulla, 43, of Redding.

Clulla was pronounced dead at the scene. Carmarena received minor injuries.

The roadway was shut down for several hours during the investigation.

Senior Project Honors Brother

while skateboarding at that corner.

BURNEY — Jared Hovis’ brother, 12-year old, Gage Sealander, was killed in a freak skateboarding accident in 2014 and Jared dedicated his senior project to his memory.

He had an idea what he wanted to do and asked Willy Lyons to help him. Willy had lost his son in a tragic accident a few years ago and it helped both of them heal. The Community came behind them and helped.

Jared and Willy went into the woods and found what they were looking for, a good, solid downed tree that could be crafted into a bench.

They brought it back into town and Willy guided Jared’s cutting, sculpting, smoothing, polishing and assembly.

At the same time they contacted Rick Morris and the Burney Beautification Committee who procured one of the Chamber’s old planters and suggested that they get the Fire Department to help with the moving and planting.

The Beautification Committee had purchased a Gator with grant money from Burney Regional Grant funds and donated it to the fire department which, along with using it for fire related chores, uses it each summer to water the Beautification Committee’s flowers and plants at various locations.

Park Plans Moving Forward
FALL RIVER MILLS — Fall River Valley Community Services District Manager Bill Johnson told his board that representatives from the District, along with representatives from Shasta Land Trust, the Stewardship Council, and PG&E had met on April 20 to review the progress and steps necessary to do the Community Park Project.

Johnson said the next steps include amending the CEQA documents to reflect the fact that the district is no longer planning on a hydroelectric generating station on the property. He says funding for the documentation is available through the Stewardship Council.

On another subject, he reported that he had attended the Integrated Regional Water Management Group meeting and learned about developments in groundwater monitoring, which will become more thorough, especially for basins considered a medium or high priority.

The next evaluation of the district’s basin will take place in 2017.

Total revenue for the District’s April billing cycle was $31,424, about 3% above budget, and total operating expense totaled $23,377, approximately 27% below budget, caused by an unusual saving in wages as well as maintenance and repairs.
