The recent illness and euthanization of a dog earlier last week has prompted Lake County officials to remind residents and visitors to take precautions while in and around Clear Lake.


The dog was euthanized following a brief severe illness that began one day after swimming in the Konocti Bay area.


Although the cause of the illness is still being evaluated, Lake Water 

Resources has obtained samples for testing of the water in that area and 

has arranged for specialized testing at the California Animal  Laboratory in Davis to determine if the illness was caused by cyanotoxins.


Symptoms in the pet included vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy. Humans have not reported illness.

Accumulations of blue-green algae are a common and familiar sight in freshwater lakes, ponds and streams throughout the country, including Clear Lake.

Some blue-green algae produce toxins that can pose a range of health risks to people and animals when they are exposed to them in large enough quantities.

Scott De Leon, director of Lake Water Resources and Karen Tait, MD, Lake health officer, urged the public to observe important safeguards to avoid 

harmful effects of cyanobacteria. Don't swim in or drink water near or in algae and the same for your pet.


 

 

The trial of Will Parrish - the activist who occupied a crane for twelve days - scheduled for Monday has been re-scheduled to Monday, September 16th. Parrish is charged with 12 counts of Unlawful Entry, two counts of Resisting Arrest, and two other misdemeanors after turning down a plea bargain because it included a ban on going near the construction site and a $3,000 financial “restitution” for damages CalTrans and the California Highway Patrol say they incurred . The trial may take 3-4 days. 


Also, Kim Bancroft, Maureen Kane, and Steve Keyes were released Sunday morning without charges having been filed after being held for two days for locking down an excavator for five hours.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Firms lobbying the state government spent a total of $86.3 million between January and June, up about 1 percent.

Interest groups that lobby California state government, meanwhile, have spent a total of $137.4 million on their efforts so far this year, about $275 million a year. As every year, the petroleum association spent the most on lobbying.


Labor unions, health care companies and the California Chamber of Commerce also spent big to influence state government.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




 A dozen environmental groups, including the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth, have called California's oil spill defenses inadequate and cited the 

need for a powerful tug capable of towing disabled oil tankers and possibly based at Bodega Bay.


“California is far behind the rest of the West Coast and the world in oil spill 

prevention, preparedness and response capability,” the groups said in 

letter to John Laird, head of the state Natural Resources Agency, and other officials.


Rep. Jared Huffman and Richard Charter, a veteran coastal advocate from Bodega Bay, endorsed the environmentalists'

message, including a call to remove chemical dispersants as a primary spill-response toolciting evidence that it is both ineffective and toxic.


“We have no tow truck,” said Charter, a senior fellow with The Ocean Foundation, referring to the need for a 10,000-horsepower tug that could keep foundering oil tankers from crashing onto

 the North Coast's rocky shores.


Alaska and Washington operate tugs, a standard California fails to meet 

despite a legal requirement for it.


More than 500 million barrels of oil are transported in California's waters 

each year.
