    THIS WEEK IN THE NORTH STATE...

    A big rig driver hauling cattle from Woodland to Cedarville lost control on Highway 299 near the Vista Point west of Burney just before 3 a.m. Friday. The second of two trailers overturned killing one cow and injuring others. The overturned trailer was uprighted and the cattle offloaded at a local ranch while an estimated six cows that were ejected in the crash were rounded up late Thursday morning. Highway 299 was closed at various times during a six-hour span for the cleanup and roundup.

    CAMPGROUND CLOSURE NOTICES NOT TRUE

    Some media outlets were reporting campgrounds in the Hat Creek and Old Station areas were going to be closed for Saturday's opening day of fishing season. While there is still visible damage from the Feb. 6 windstorm, all private and public campgrounds will be open. There are some campsites within the U.S. Forest Service that will be closed, but not entire campgrounds, said a forest service official working Thursday at Hat Creek Campground just west of Old Station. Of the more than 175 campsites at the six U.S. Forest Service campgrounds, he estimated 25 percent of the campsites would be closed while workers continuing felling trees deemed unsafe. All private campgrounds open to the public are open and no campsites are closed at those locations. To view more information on those campgrounds, download the 2015 Visitors Guide on this page below for Rancheria RV Park in Hat Creek and others or click on the following links: Hat Creek Hereford Ranch RV Park & CampgroundHat Creek Resort & RV Park.
