MT. SHASTA, Calif.-- An investigation surrounding the circumstances that left one man unconscious in his home in the 300 block of Quincy Street in McCloud on August 19 has been closed after his death has been determined to be caused by a spontaneous brain hemorrhage, according to a press release from Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office.

Steven Guymon, 47, was transported to Mercy Medical Center in Mt. Shasta around 9:30 p.m. after being found unconscious in his house. A deputy was sent to the hospital in response to the report that Guymon was under treatment for a possible debilitating injury that left him unconscious.

Guymon later died on August 23.

Internal bleeding in the brain caused bleeding under the surface of the skin, which resembled an injury.

Couple found guilty in child abuse case

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A Gold Hill couple has been found guilty of criminal mistreatment and assault in the second degree after being accused of severely abusing their 11-year-old son.

The boy's stepmother, Angela Marie Millard, and her husband, Lawrence Millard, were on trial this week facing several assault and criminal mistreatment charges.

The Millards were arrested in February after the boy's grandmother took him to a health clinic in Washington state. A nurse practitioner alerted authorities when she noticed the thin boy had burned hands, a broken tooth, a swollen foot and bruised legs.

Prosecutors allege the couple would beat the boy and leave him tied up in their one-bedroom apartment.

Investigators say the step-mother would hold the boy's hand under hot water and beat him with a hair brush and that the father beat him with a table leg.

Sentencing begins Tuesday. The assault charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of more than five years in prison.

The boy is in foster care along with his two sisters.

MEDFORD-- Medford Police are investigating the circumstances of a stabbing in the 400 block of Plum Street that left one man with a stab wound to his lower leg on Wednesday night, according to a press release.

Medford Police did not find the victim at the scene after responding to the report of a possible stabbing around 10:15 p.m. and witnesses only had vague details of the event.

One hour later, Providence Hospital contacted the police regarding a stabbing victim in the emergency room. The 32-year-old's wound was non-life threatening. 

According to the press release, the man was stabbed after getting into an argument with other people. Police also say he is well known to local law enforcement.

The investigation is ongoing.

Mayor thanks US student who helped thwart France attack

DON THOMPSON, Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — An American student who helped stop a terror attack on a Paris-bound high-speed train said Wednesday it's been a "crazy few days" and he is happy to be home.

Anthony Sadler spoke briefly during a news conference with Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, who presented him with a basketball jersey.

"I'd just like to thank everybody for coming out," Sadler said. "After such a crazy few days, it feels good to be back on American soil, but especially in Sacramento. This is my home, and I'm just glad to be back here to see everybody."

It was the first time the 23-year-old Sacramento State University student and his family have spoken publicly since he returned to the U.S.

Sadler arrived in Sacramento on Tuesday after first taking a private jet to Portland, Oregon. Columbia Sportswear CEO Timothy Boyle had made the jet available to fly the Americans' mothers to France.

Sadler and two Sacramento-area friends — U.S. Air Force Airman Spencer Stone, 23, and Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, 22 — helped subdue Ayoub El-Khazzani, a man with ties to radical Islam who was carrying a handgun and an assault weapon on the train Friday.

His father, a church pastor also named Anthony Sadler, recounted how he ignored his son's initial telephone call after the attack because it came from a strange number. Only after his son sent him two texts did he answer the call.

"He began telling me what happened with the words that any parent would want to hear. He began by saying, 'Dad, I'm all right. We're all right. But something happened,'" he said. "I fell back in my seat in disbelief. I couldn't believe what had taken place and what my son and Spencer and Alek had found themselves involved in in the middle of this great European trip."

Johnson added that, "The story we are celebrating here today could be entirely different if it wasn't for the bravery of Anthony, Alek and Spencer. ...A massacre could have taken place, but it was averted."

Stone was undergoing treatment at a military hospital in Germany for injuries suffered in the attack. Skarlatos remained with Stone in Germany.

"It's kind of overwhelming for me," Sadler said Wednesday. "I didn't expect all this to happen, but I just appreciate you all for coming, and it's just good to be back home."

The mayor gave Sadler a Sacramento Kings jersey after saying he saw the college student wearing a Los Angeles Lakers jersey.

"We're so thankful to have one of those three young men here with us," Johnson said. "On behalf of the city and this region, we just want to say to you, thank you, thank you and thank you!"

Senior U.S. Army leaders said Skarlatos will get the Soldiers Medal — the Army's highest award for acts of heroism not involving actual conflict with the enemy.

The city of Sacramento is planning a parade for all three men, who grew up in the area. Sacramento Police Chief Sam Somers said federal, state and local authorities are consulting to make sure Sadler is in no danger, but his father said there currently are no credible threats against his son.

Sadler was greeted with repeated applause by a crowd including family members, city officials and bystanders including local golf pro Taylor Hawkins.

She said she came out "just to see and just to support Anthony Sadler. I think what he did was heroic — to have that courage, just to do what he and he did, he and his friends."

Humbled Vick at peace in reserve role with Steelers

WILL GRAVES, AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The crowd around the backup quarterback's locker was three or four deep. Somewhere in the middle, underneath the bright lights that never seem to go away, Michael Vick spent 13 minutes answering the same questions that never seem to go away.

Six years removed from the end of a federal prison sentence for his role in a dogfighting ring that changed his football career — and more importantly the arc of his life — Vick understands his mere presence in the NFL remains difficult for some.

As the newest member of the Pittsburgh Steelers spoke Wednesday less than 24 hours after agreeing to a one-year deal, a handful of protesters armed with homemade signs gathered outside the team's training complex to remind Vick of personal missteps he understands will follow him forever. One sign read: "Jail time is not enough."

"There still are some people who feel the same way about what happened," Vick said. "But I think you've got to look at the bottom line. You can't look to the past, because everybody's different from when they're 20 to when they're 35."

And the man in the white No. 2 jersey who spent Wednesday jogging and getting his left arm loose is decidedly different from the football supernova that once appeared to be a video game brought to life.

He's not a starter anymore. He's not young anymore. He's not the franchise anymore. He's not even a redemption case anymore. The Steelers don't need Vick to save them. Really, they kind of hope they don't need him at all. Ben Roethlisberger got a $100 million contract last spring and isn't looking over his shoulder.

Vick is simply Plan B, or maybe even Plan C. And he gets it, even if it took some getting used to last season while playing overqualified understudy to Geno Smith with the New York Jets.

"I admit that I didn't do it as well as I wanted to, because in my mind the position I was in was supposed to be different," Vick said. "But I think you've got to accept it first. I think I've been able to do that and come to grips with it, and my role is clear."

The role comes with its own unique circumstances. This is the duality of Vick in the twilight. He will forever be a pariah to some — his first day with the Steelers ironically coincided with National Dog Day — and yet for many players he remains as much myth as man.

Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell was "starstruck" when he ran into Vick before the crisp informal workout that led to Vick's signing. Rookie quarterback/wide receiver Tyler Murphy idolized Vick when the now 23-year-old Murphy was in elementary school. The nod of respect is a reminder of how far Vick is from his prime, when he was spectacularly making it up as he went along in Atlanta and giving Steelers coach Mike Tomlin sleepless nights when he was running the secondary in Tampa Bay.

Part of Vick believes a shred of that player still exists. It's what made sitting by the phone this summer after his largely lifeless year with the Jets so frustrating.

"I felt like I didn't lose a step, especially with my arm strength and my speed, and I just didn't understand why (I didn't get called)," Vick said. "But I kept my faith and kept working hard, because I knew that at some point, eventually, I would get a shot."

What that shot will eventually look like, however, remains unclear. Tomlin didn't rule out giving Vick an opportunity to get in the huddle on Saturday against Buffalo, simply calling what he saw on Wednesday "a good start."

"His talents are his talents," Tomlin said. "He can throw the football. He can put it anywhere on the field."

Vick is OK with that being enough for now. He's become pretty capable of learning on the fly during a nomadic second act that brought him from Philadelphia to New York to Pittsburgh. He's also adept at defusing any lingering tension about his misdeeds.

While the attendant at the team's front desk took phone calls from fans expressing displeasure at his arrival, he remained stoic when asked how he "can sleep with himself" at night, pointing to his work as an advocate against animal cruelty.

"I can't take it back, but the only thing I can do is to try to make up for it the best I can," he said. "I know it affected a lot of kids' lives and saving a lot of animals. So, we've made a lot of progress. We changed some laws and do some great things that I'm very proud of. I never thought I'd be doing that."

A few moments later the lights flipped off, the sea of cameras and microphones around him dispersed and Vick sat in his locker, picked up his phone and embraced the peace within.

Investigation: EPA, state missed potential for mine blowout

This Aug. 11, 2015 file photo shows waste water continuing to stream out of the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colo. Federal and state regulators underestimated the potential for a toxic blowout from the Colorado mine, despite warnings more than a year earlier that a large-volume spill of wastewater was possible, an internal government investigation released Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015 found. (Geoff Liesik/The Deseret News via AP, File)

MATTHEW BROWN, Associated Press

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Despite prior warnings that dangerous levels of toxic water were building inside a Colorado mine, federal and state regulators mistakenly concluded the pressure was not high enough to cause an accident, an investigation released Wednesday found.

The pressure blew, however, when a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency team started excavation and cleanup work at the site, unleashing a 3-million-gallon torrent of poisoned mine water that fouled rivers in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah.

Officials previously offered only partial information on events leading up to the Aug. 5 accident that has drawn sharp criticism of the EPA for causing the spill and for its lackluster response.

In the report Wednesday summarizing its internal investigation, EPA officials faulted procedures that left personnel largely unprepared for the spill and recommended changes to avoid a repeat of the accident.

The report also appeared to minimize the agency's responsibility. Among its conclusions were that a "blowout was likely inevitable" and that an EPA official on the scene had staged a rapid evacuation effort that kept members of the cleanup crew from being killed.

Based on other records, The Associated Press reported Saturday that EPA managers knew that a release of "large volumes of contaminated mine waters" was a possibility as early as June, 2014, yet drew up only a cursory response plan.

The worries about a large spill were repeated in a May work plan from an agency contractor, Environmental Restoration.

The toxic sludge released from the mine prompted the shutdown of some public drinking water and irrigation systems and tainted hundreds of miles of rivers.

Some farmers on the Navajo Nation who draw water from one of the affected rivers, the San Juan, want to keep irrigation systems shut down for at least a year to avoid contaminated sediments that experts say likely settled onto river bottoms.

EPA Deputy Administrator Stan Meiburg said on a Wednesday conference call that underestimating the water pressure inside the mine workings "was likely the most significant factor relating to the blowout."

The investigation revealed that regulators could have drilled into the mine to get a better gauge on how much pressure had built up.

Though drilling would have been expensive and technically challenging, "this procedure may have been able to discover the pressurized conditions that turned out to cause the blowout," the documents say.

However, Meinburg said there was "no evidence to suggest this technique would be necessary," and other factors indicated there was little pressure inside the mine.

Those indications included the lack of any seeps of water above the mine opening and the fact that water was draining from the mine, meaning a buildup of pressure was less likely.

Asked to reconcile the contradictory claims that the pressure could have been discovered but the spill was "likely inevitable," EPA assistant administrator Mathy Stanislaus said it was unknown if the drilling could have been done.

The documents said state officials from the Colorado Department of Natural Resources had supported the work done by the EPA team and were present on the day of the spill. Agency spokesman Todd Hartman said Wednesday that it was "pretty clear at this point folks didn't have a good handle on the amount of water" in the mine.

Elected officials from impacted states and Congress have been critical of the EPA's handling of the spill and the slow pace with which the agency has released documents related to it. Among the unanswered questions is why it took the agency nearly a day to inform downstream communities that rely on the rivers for drinking water.

EPA officials acknowledged Wednesday that more efforts should have been made to notify downstream communities.

The wastewater flowed into a tributary of the Animas and San Juan rivers, turning them a sickly yellow-orange color and tainting them with lead, arsenic, thallium and other heavy metals that can cause health problems and harm aquatic life.

The toxic plume traveled roughly 300 miles through Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, to Lake Powell on the Arizona-Utah border.

EPA water testing has shown contamination levels returning to pre-spill levels, though experts warn some of the contaminants likely sunk and mixed with bottom sediments and could someday be stirred back up.

Toxic water continues to flow out of the mine. Since the accident, the EPA has built a series of ponds so contaminated sediments can settle out before the water enters a nearby creek.

The agency said more needs to be done and the potential remains for another blowout.

Separate investigations into the accident are being conducted by the EPA's Inspector General's Office and the U.S. Department of Interior.
