Shooting at Republican Baseball Team Practice, Virgina


http://www.foxnews.com

Reports of a shooting this morning are correct. The Republican baseball team was hit at practice in Virginia. I am a member of the team but was not present at this practice session. Many are asking as I am on the roster. Pray for Whip Steve Scalise who was shot in the thigh area, is in surgery but should be ok and one staff member was hit and 2 Capitol Hill police hit. Their conditions are less known but seem to be more serious.

A Chico Nurse is Charged for Negligent Care


38-year-old Allison Guster of Chico appeared in a Butte County Courtroom Wednesday for her arraignment for the death of a hospital patient under her care.
The incident happened back in April of 2016 when 71-year-old Janna Adamson was recovering from surgery at Enloe Hospital. Adamson's doctor's orders for the nursing staff was to check the patient's oxygen levels at least every four hours. According to a District Attorney's Office press release, Guster allegedly only checked on Adamson once during her shift. Just before 4 am Adamson was found cold and unresponsive and dispite efforts to resuscitate her, Adamson was declared dead. An autopsy has determined Adamson died of pulmonary insufficiency, a condition which medical experts say would have been treatable if discovered in time. Guster reportedly falsified log entries on the number of times she checked on Adamson and the patient's pulse oximetry monitor had allegedly been turned off.
If convicted Guster could face 11 years in prison.

Suspected Pot Growers Give Pleas in a Butte County Courtroom


Suspected pot growers in the Oroville area enter pleas in court. Three suspected drug cartel growers entered no-contest pleas, Wednesday in a Butte County courtroom, to felony charges of cultivating thousands of marijuana plants. Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey noted that normally under Proposition 64 those felony charges would now become misdemeanors, but because the growers violated environmental laws the cultivation will remain felonies.
Two of the men 22-year-old Genaro Uristegui of Fresno and Andres 39-year-old Galarza-Zendejas were charged for marijuana cultivation and diverting water at two properties on Harlan Avenue near the Oroville Airport. They were also charged with dumping gasoline in a stream that they made to divert the water.
Another man, 40-year-old Eliceo Morales of Mexico was charged for marijuana cultivation and diverting water at a property on Rocky Top Road off of Cherokee Road.
According to a press release from the Butte County District Attorney's Office, all three men will be sentenced on June 28th.

California Borrowing Millions of Dollars for Oroville Dam Repairs


OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) — California is borrowing up to a half-billion dollars to pay for repairs to the badly damaged spillways of Oroville Dam.
 
The state treasurer's office said Monday that California water officials obtained a $500 million letter of credit last week for the Oroville Dam repairs.
 
Heavy water this winter tore giant craters out of both spillways at the half-century-old dam, forcing the evacuation of 188,000 people. The state Department of Water Resources is rushing to repair the main spillway before the next rainy season.
 
President Trump announced $274 million in funding for Oroville Dam repairs last month. State officials have not provided a repair cost estimate so far but said Monday they have asked the federal government to pay 75 percent.
 
Repairs are expected to take two years.

State Sen. Jim Nielsen Reaction to Oroville Dam Report


OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A California state senator is troubled that residents below a damaged California dam knew little about potential risk until ordered to evacuate when a spillway began breaking up.


Republican Sen. Jim Nielsen says communication from state managers during the February crisis at Oroville Dam was confusing to the public.


On Feb. 7, a massive crack opened in the main spillway at the dam. For days, managers assured the public there was no imminent danger as they slowed releases of water to assess the damage.
Then, a backup spillway started falling apart, triggering the evacuation order for nearly 200,000 people.
An Associated Press review found officials made a series of questionable decisions and missteps before and during the crisis.


Nielsen represents thousands of residents who were evacuated and says the confusing communication in the days leading to the evacuation will be one issue discussed during a Senate hearing on the crisis this month.

He says "there must be some accountability."

U2 Crash Probe Findings


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The U.S. Air Force says pilot error forced two airmen to eject from a U2 spy plane while on a training mission from Beale Air Force Base base in September, killing one of them.
The Air Force released findings of its probe of the crash near Sutter, California on Wednesday. Investigators found that a pilot who was learning to fly the aircraft either pulled back too fast or too quickly on his stick while learning to recover from a stall. That caused the plane to go into a secondary stall that forced him and his instructor, Lt. Col. Ira S. Eadie, to eject.
Investigators determined Eadie suffered fatal injuries when his seat struck the plane's right wing.
