Caltrans proposes to widen the roadway between East Gridley Road and the Butte-Yuba County line to improve highway safety. The $50 million project calls for constructing a 14-foot two-way left turn lane, an additional 12-foot lane in both directions, 8-foot shoulders, a 20-foot area for vehicles veering off the roadway to return to the main highway and a new southbound bridge. Construction is estimated to start in spring 2021.

 

Caltrans District 3 is responsible for maintaining and operating 4,385 lane miles in 11 Sacramento Valley and Northern Sierra counties. For project updates, follow Caltrans District 3  on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3. For real-time traffic, click on Caltrans’ QuickMap quickmap.dot.ca.gov/ or download the QuickMap app from the App Store or Google Play.

Just before 10:00 p.m. on 12/2/2019, Yuba County Deputies responded to a 911 caller reporting his
neighbor was shooting a gun; and that a bullet had struck their home in the 3000 block of Feather River
Blvd in Olivehurst. Upon arrival, Deputies discovered a single bullet had hit the victims’ residence and
traveled through a wall into the home. The home was occupied at the time, but nobody was injured in the
shooting.


The neighbor that had reportedly fired the shots was identified as 63-year-old Thomas Allen Sudderth
of Olivehurst. Sudderth was determined to be a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing firearms or
ammunition. While deputies were at the scene, Sudderth exited his home next door holding a rifle.
Sudderth refused deputies commands and went back inside his residence.
Deputies established a perimeter around Sudderth’s home, and following several minutes of verbal
commands to come out, the suspect complied and exited his residence unarmed. Sudderth was found to be
intoxicated and was detained. Detectives responded and upon execution of a search warrant for the
suspect’s residence, located several guns and ammunition. Sudderth was arrested for 246PC/Shooting at an
Inhabited Dwelling, and being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition. He was booked into the
Yuba County Jail with a bail amount of $250,000.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.

 

To help senior drivers face the challenges of aging safely, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) joins the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) in recognizing December 2-6 as Older Driver Safety Awareness Week.


The AOTA hopes to promote understanding of the importance of mobility and transportation to ensure older adults remain active in the community—shopping, working, or volunteering—with the confidence that transportation will not be the barrier to strand them at home.


“The ability to drive encompasses a person’s knowledge and experience, along with visual, physical, and mental capabilities,” CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley said. “While knowledge and experience may continue to increase, older drivers must adapt to changes in their capabilities to remain safe, responsible drivers.”


California currently has more than 27 million licensed drivers and more than 4.5 million of them, 17 percent, are 65 or older. Preliminary data from the CHP’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System shows that in 2018, 558 drivers 65 or older were in fatal collisions, with 297 at fault. Of all California drivers killed in collisions each year, approximately 15 percent are 65 or older.
Driving is a complex activity that requires certain physical, visual, and cognitive abilities. As people age, those abilities often change in subtle ways. A driver’s chronological age is not a good predictor of driving ability. What counts on the road is performance. Having a series of minor crashes or near misses, getting lost on familiar roads, and being spoken to about driving by police, family, and friends are a few signs of diminished capacity for safe driving.


The CHP supports older drivers with its free, two-hour Age Well, Drive Smart course. Through this program, seniors can sharpen their driving skills, refresh their knowledge of the rules of the road, and learn how to adjust to normal age-related physical and mental changes. Information is available at CHP Area offices or at www.chp.ca.gov/programs-services.


The mission of the CHP is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security.

 

Marysville, Ca.

The City of Marysville has announced they will celebrate the lighting of their downtown Christmas Tree on December 6th. The festivities, which begin at 5:00 in the park at 3rd and D, will kick-off the holiday shopping season for downtown merchants as well, most remaining open until 9:00pm. The downtown shopping experience will be enhanced this year with the seasonal launch of 3 “pop-up” shops in addition to the array of unique stores already located on and around D Street.

“The Christmas Tree lighting is always such a festive event. It’s a great way to get the holiday season started”, commented Mayor Ricky Samayoa. “In past years, we’ve held the Tree Lighting on the same day as the parade but this year we’re pairing it with the launch of our Pop-Up Shops on D Street.

“Downtown Marysville is filled with shops offering one-of-a-kind gift ideas”, he continued, “and our new Pop-Up Shops are bringing even more variety of handmade and unique products”.

The Pop-Up Shops are located at 323, 324 and 325 D Street. They will feature Vintage Clothing & Accessories, Woodcrafts, Artisanal Candles and Bath & Beauty Products. Customers will find them open during the 3 weekends before Christmas.

The rains finally arrived which means muddy rivers and lots of sturgeon moving inland. With our weather source predicting more rain this week it is expected to raise local rivers and turn the water brown. Reports tell us some good areas to go after the sturgeon is Knights Landing and the Verona area. We are told to also see a few stripers caught and some will be keepers.

 

Local creeks, ditches and bypasses are a good bet for catfish with the Sutter Bypass leading the pack. When rivers rise so does the waterways that lead into the rivers. Any of these creeks, including ditches, will produce catfish this time of year. Keep in mind your bait does not need to stink to catch cats, but these scavengers usually prefer the smelly stuff over other baits. Years ago we shot a jack rabbit and left the carcass out in the sun for a week before using it for bait. I have caught lots of nice sized catfish with this method. In fact, just about any diehard catfish anglers have their own favorite stink bait.

 

Channel Catfish are an excellent table fare and are usually found in local rivers. I said usually because they are also found just about anywhere in the valley and foothill waters.

 

One of my favorite recipes for catfish fillets is to use mayonnaise and Ritz crackers, salt, pepper, garlic powder, dry parsley and pepper. Preparation is easy. On a sheet of wax paper place a cup of mayonnaise on one side and the dry ingredients, including the cracker crumbs, mixed thoroughly,  on the other side. Simply dredge the fillets in the mayonnaise and coat the fish with the cracker crumbs and dry ingredients. Pat the fillets to force the crumbs into the flesh. Heat a skillet to 350 degrees with oil and when hot carefully place the fish pieces in the pan. Cook on both sides and serve with lemon slices along with the rest of your meal.

 

Closing thought: “It is O.K. to be afraid as long as your courage outweighs your fear.”

Established in 1991 by Thom Staser and others, the Nevada County Food & Toy Run has provided tens of thousands of Christmas presents and thousands of Christmas meals to needy children and families throughout Nevada County and the surrounding areas for nearly 3 decades.

The riders act like little kids themselves as they parade through the streets of Nevada City and Grass Valley on their final stretch to the fairgrounds, but ask any one of them and the most heartwarming reward for them all is the joy to be found on those children's’ faces when they receive what they might have otherwise gone without.

      Another year is about to come to an end.  December always seems to be a busy month climaxing with New Year’s celebrations and facing what unfolds in the new year.  As far as gardening goes, there is not too much required except the second dormant spraying of fruit trees to protect them from curly leaf and other fungal infections.  That should be done near the end of December with a copper spray mixed with horticultural oil.  The same spray can be beneficial to other plants that are sometimes damaged by fungal infections.  Roses are candidates to prevent powdery mildew, rust and black spot. Fire Blight on apples and pears has been a more prominent problem recently and they should also be sprayed.  Pyracantha will benefit from spraying, as it is also subject to Fire Blight.

 

     December usually brings us some very cold weather, and it is good to be ready for it rather than being caught short and possibly losing some plants.  Be sure plants are well watered when a predicted freeze comes along.  Wet roots will withstand the freezing, and below freezing weather better than dry roots because they are insulated by a blanket of ice that keeps them at 32 degrees.   Raised beds that may be somewhat shallow could be similarly affected with the possibility of extremely low temperatures.  Just keep in mind “dry roots freeze faster than wet roots”.  Citrus trees are especially susceptible to freezing both because they are evergreen and they are out of their sub-tropical “comfort zone”.  Many of them will have fruit on them which will likely be damaged if not protected.  If the fruit is ripe it can be harvested, if it is green it will need protection.  Plastic will never protect the plant if it is simply thrown over the plant in contact with the foliage since it has no insulation properties.  It can be very effective, if it used to create dead air space around the plant.  A simple frame work around the tree, leaving several inches of free space, then cover the framework with a plastic sheet of some kind.  Some people will hang a light bulb inside to create some warmth if there is power close by.  Keep in mind that most of the newer efficient bulbs don’t offer as much heat as the old incandescent bulbs do.  For smaller susceptible plants an old blanket or beach towel – just something with some insulation quality can be used to cover the plant.  There is a relatively inexpensive manufactured product called “frost cloth” that can be used. It has the advantage of being light weight and shedding the rain rather than becoming heavy when wet like a towel.  It is often found in a light weight, or a heavier weight for better protection.

 

     Christmas tree lots will begin popping up everywhere, if not already. Some nurseries and garden centers will carry live Christmas trees, or other alternatives that intrigue folks.  The live Christmas trees often come as a “balled-in-burlap” item, meaning the roots have been dug from the ground with a ball of its soil around it.  It is then wrapped tightly in burlap and shipped that way, and it is left that way until it is planted.  When it is planted, it should be put in place still in the burlap and situated properly, and at that time the twine holding the burlap can be cut and any extra burlap can be trimmed off leaving any under the tree there (it will disintegrate in time) and finish planting the tree.

 

      Bare root season will be getting underway soon. Bare root roses arrive in mid December and bare root fruit trees arrive in late December and are ready to sell in January.  Blueberries, cane berries, pomegranates, figs arrive the last week of November. Asparagus, strawberries, rhubarb, and horse radish arrive in January. We sell them in pots. Bare root fruit tree lists are available at the nursery. You can take the list and plan what you want.

 

      If you purchase or are given a beautiful poinsettia plant for a seasonal decoration, please treat it well. Remove the  foil that covers the drain hole for the container and place it on a saucer with pebbles in it so that the plant doesn’t sit in water. There are many beautiful cultivars now, but I still prefer the plain red ones.  Ventura, where I grew up, was called the Poinsettia city.  The basic red poinsettias needed no special care there. My mother had them growing up the side of our driveway and all she did was cut them way back after they bloomed, they came back and bloomed at just the right time every year.  All gardening should be so easy!  We wish you all a wonderful holiday season.

 

Cecilia Rice is a partner at Bald Mountain Nursery on Bald Mountain Road  in Browns Valley.

 

     A note from Jeff Rice.      Cecilia Rice will turn 90 this December. She has decided to retire from writing this column. Therefore I will start writing the column in January. You may see some writing style changes, but I will continue with the monthly gardening column to bring you information on what is going on in your garden each month.

Yuba City

 

The Yuba City Police Department is focusing on speeding drivers in Yuba City neighborhoods through the Neighborhood Speed Awareness Program. The Neighborhood Speed Awareness (NSA) Program was designed to reduce speed in residential Yuba City neighborhoods through a combination of education and enforcement. The program offers an alternative to court fines for speed violations in residential areas.


Violators cited under this program attend a class presented by the Yuba City Police Department designed to inform the driving public of the need for speed compliance.
Attendance in the class requires active participation by the students in an informative/interactive two hour session. Information is given to the students on braking distances, vehicle load dynamics, vehicle versus bicycle/pedestrian injuries and collision prevention techniques.


Upon completion of the class the Yuba City Police Department nullifies the citation. The program assures better driving habits through education and students are encouraged to talk to their friends/family about the class.


Drivers may choose to attend court or handle the citation in the traditional manner; however this program seeks to provide an economical alternative for drivers and change behavior through education.


Speed continues to be the leading primary collision factor for collisions in Yuba City. In 2016, unsafe speed accounted for approximately 28% of injury collisions. Speeding in neighborhoods is also a leading concern for residents and deters from the quality of life in our city. The Yuba City Police Department takes speed offenses seriously. In 2016, approximately 1005 drivers were cited for speeding. Sgt. Kim Slade wants drivers to know “If you’re speeding in our neighborhoods, officers will be looking to stop and cite you.”
The NSA program targets residential streets within the boundaries of the City of Yuba City with identified speeding problems and seeks to make our neighborhoods safer and increase the quality of life in our community.


For the month of December, 2019 officers will be focusing enforcement efforts on the following residential Yuba City streets:


Forbes Ave

Olive St

Plumas St

Market St

Bryn Mawr Dr

Ruth Dr
Railroad Ave


“This is our City and our neighborhoods, please slow down and be a responsible driver,” says Sgt. Slade.


For more information on the Neighborhood Speed Awareness Program, please call the Yuba City Police Department Traffic Education and Enforcement Office at 530-822-4795.
