MT Shasta Stands Tall

Refreshing news from Mount Shasta I read an article in the online magazine Yes! about the laudable steps the Siskiyou County town of Mount Shasta is taking to keep big corporations and other behemoths, such as Nestlé, Coca-Cola and PG&E, from sucking its lifeblood and trampling its environment via such practices as large-scale water extraction and regional cloud-seeding using the toxic chemical silver iodide.

Rezoning Work Starts

The proposed rezoning of approximately 771 acres on the slopes of Mt. Shasta has garnered the attention of some Siskiyou County residents. However, planning officials say it’s early in the process to become overly anxious.

The land, which is owned by the Roseburg Resources Company, is currently a Timberland Production Zone. The proposed rezoning to Rural Residential Agricultural would allow for the land to be subdivided into parcels with a 40 acre minimum, according to county documents.

Policing Mount Shasta

Ah, the life of a small-town cop. In 1998 when he first started working for the Mount Shasta Police Department, Parish Cross' first arrest was on a charge of domestic violence involving an old high school buddy.

For a small-town police officer it's like that much of the time, close and personal: Crime victims can be his neighbors. The guy he tickets on Wednesday may be coaching Little League with him that weekend.
