Large-Animal Veterinarians Needed in Siskiyou County
Ariana Rakhshani/KTVL.com

SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. -- Siskiyou County is down to few large-animal veterinarians.

Last year, the main large-animal veterinarian lost her life to cancer. Since then, the large-animal community has been underserved.

Hale Dairy has about 900 milk-cows and calves, and a large animal veterinarian is needed often. Hale Dairy owner Doug Hale said the only large-animal veterinarian in Siskiyou County is Doctor Art Spencer.

"He's the guy in the Valley," Hale said. "I've got no other choice, but I mean, he's been great--even though there's been nobody else."

Doctor Spencer said some large-animal veterinarians are thinking about relocating to Siskiyou County to help serve livestock like large animals, and alleviate some work from Doctor Spencer.

Judge blocks release of recordings by anti-abortion group

SUDHIN THANAWALA, Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge on Friday blocked the release of any recordings made at meetings of an abortion providers' association by an anti-abortion group that previously revealed secretly recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader.

Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

In his three-page order, Orrick said the federation would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order "in the form of harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation."

The National Abortion Federation sued in federal court in San Francisco, alleging that the Center for Medical Progress infiltrated its meetings and recorded its members. The group says release of any audio or video would put members in danger.

"The safety and security of our members is our top priority," Vicki Saporta, association president and CEO, said in a statement. "That security has been compromised by the illegal activities of a group with ties to those who believe it is justifiable to murder abortion providers."

David Daleiden, a leader of the Center for Medical Progress who is also named in the suit, said in a statement that Planned Parenthood and its allies were trying to silence the group and suppress investigative journalism.

"The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and will contest all attempts from Planned Parenthood and their allies to silence our First Amendment rights," he said.

The center has released several secretly recorded videos that have riled anti-abortion activists, including one Thursday of a Planned Parenthood doctor in Colorado. It has accused Planned Parenthood of selling fetal tissue for profit, which is illegal, and Republicans in Congress have begun discussing cutting off funding for the organization.

The undercover video released Thursday shows Dr. Savita Ginde, vice president of Denver-based Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, discussing prices of aborted fetal remains, the center says. Planned Parenthood issued a statement calling the video "misleading and deceptively edited."

An earlier video shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, describing techniques for obtaining fetal body parts for research. She spoke over lunch with activists posing as potential buyers from a human biologics company.

Planned Parenthood says it abides by a law that allows providers to be reimbursed for the costs of processing tissue donated by women who have had abortions. The payments cited by Planned Parenthood officials in some of the videos range from $30 to $100 per specimen, and the organization has subsequently confirmed that is the general range, although there is no fixed price list.

In Friday's lawsuit, the National Abortion Federation alleges that the center created a fake company to get into the federation's annual meetings in 2014 and 2015 and then recorded its members with the goal of smearing abortion-rights supporters.

The suit sought a temporary restraining order barring the release of any video or audio recordings, the dates of any of the federation's future meetings and the names and addresses of its members.

A California court this week issued a temporary restraining order blocking the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of leaders of StemExpress, a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers.

In one of the previously aired videos, a woman identified as a former StemExpress phlebotomist describes drawing blood and dissecting dead fetuses.

Person of interest in police impersonations in custody
By KTVL Staff/KTVL.com

MEDFORD-- Jackson County Sheriff's Office has announced that a suspect in a high speed chase case is now a person of interest in an ongoing investigation into a police impersonation case.

Kevan Skeels, 24, of Eagle Point was arrested on July 29 following a car chase with a deputy who attempted to stop him for having a vehicle that matched the description of the police impersonator, a black 2006 Ford Crown Victoria.

A search warrant on his home and car revealed LED-lights similar to those used in police vehicles, methamphetamine and firearms with ammunition. One firearm was found in Skeels' vehicle.

No police uniforms were found, but tactical gear and clothing similar to those used by officers was located.

According to the press release, although Skeels is not believed to be the suspect in the recent White City police impersonator case, officers have evidence that he has performed similar stops in the past.

Skeels also faces additional charges for the drugs and weapons found in his vehicle and residence.

The sheriff's office is asking anyone with information into the case to come forward. Skeels purchased his vehicle in May and has only lived in Jackson County for a few months.

Skeels is previously from Verona, Ore. and is currently on post-prison supervision for a 2011 felony assault conviction in Washington County.

The investigation is ongoing.

Amid California drought, fears rise of trees dying, falling

CHRISTINE ARMARIO, Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — As Californians and the communities they live in cut back water use and let lawns turn brown, arborists and state officials are worrying about a potentially dangerous ripple effect: Nearby urban trees going neglected and becoming diseased or dying.

With cities ordered to reduce water use by 25 percent during the state's four-year drought, many residents are turning off sprinklers — not realizing that trees can be permanently damaged by a sudden reduction in the amount of water they receive.

"You don't want to be cutting back the water to the trees," said Ruben Green, an arborist with Evergreen Arborist Consultants in Los Angeles. "The tree can't adjust."

Across the state, 12 million trees died over the past year due to lack of water, according to the U.S. Forest Service. While the bulk of those deaths occurred outside urban areas, conservationists and officials are now focusing on cities, where mandated water reductions are becoming visible in drying limbs and scorched leaves.

Fears that parched trees could pose a danger were heightened this week when a 75-year-old, 75-foot-tall pine tree fell on a group of kids from a camp at a Southern California children's museum, leaving a boy and girl hospitalized with serious injuries. An independent arborist and another from the city of Pasadena are conducting an investigation into the cause, which has not been determined to be drought-related.

Green visited the site of Tuesday's tree collapse and said it appeared unlikely the drought was to blame because the area around the tree looked well irrigated and its root system appeared compromised — a sign of rot, decay or injury, not necessarily the drought.

Still, the collapse highlighted concerns about the health of urban trees. Los Angeles alone has more than 25 square miles of parks and about 350,000 trees.

Green and other arborists said they have seen an increase in the number of diseased trees in the city. As they get less water, they become more prone to illness caused by pests. In addition to bark beetles, Green has seen a newer pest drilling tunnels in the trunks of "dozens and dozens of trees."

Arborists say the number of falling trees and limbs does not appear to have risen in Los Angeles, but there are concerns that could be next.

"We're really right on the brink of starting to face more serious issues," said Cindy Blain, executive director of California ReLeaf, a nonprofit network of urban and community foresting groups around the state. "This is a critical time."

The University of California's Tree Failure Report program tracks trunk and branch collapses across the state and has recorded a substantial increase, from 2,587 incidents in 2010 to 5,776 as of May of this year.

Arborists also are worried that if a strong El Nino brings a wet California winter, already distressed trees will collapse when a storm hits.

California ReLeaf has partnered with Save Our Water, a coalition of the California Department of Water Resources and Association of California Water Agencies, to launch a campaign informing residents about proper tree care during the drought.

Blain said many of the people she's spoken with say they have forgotten about their trees or gotten worried and began watering at the tree's base. Trees should be watered from the edge of their canopy.

If a tree goes too long without enough water, it will become unable to soak up the liquid at all.

Like many Californians, Bruce Birkett has reduced lawn watering at his childhood home in Los Angeles in response to the drought. Recently, though, he's watched in grief as the giant cedar in the front yard became brittle and brown.

"That was hard," he said, "watching this lovely tree looking poor."
