Clear Lake State Park reopened its gates on Wednesday after being closed for more than a month due to flooding. 

The Lake County News reported that the park is open to day use and boating from sunrise to sunset. However, the historic flooding of Clear Lake has damaged a good portion of the area, keeping the campgrounds and cabins closed.

Park Superintendent Bill Salata told the news site the cabins will be shut down indefinitely because park officials still haven’t evaluated the erosion damage as some portions of it remain underwater. 

The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday, February 14, 2017 in a press release that they will resume sales of voluntary zip ties for medical marijuana immediately.

The zip ties are a way of identifying legal marijuana plants. According to the Sheriff's Office, this kind of labeling process is a time savor for the deputies when they come across plants. 

The seventh and final fugitive wanted on suspicion of killing Laytonville marijuana grower ­­ Jeffrey Settler was arrested in New Jersey on Friday.

According to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office, Gary Blank the third was taken into custody by New Jersey State Police at around 9 p.m. in the neighborhood of red bank. Exact details on what led to the arrest weren’t released but officials did say law enforcement agencies in the state were helped by anonymous sources saying Blank had been given a ride from California to the northeast.

I'm here at the Folk Alliance International Conference  representing KZYX & Z and my show "Roots and All."

I may have mentioned a few dozen times on the show that my kid, Ian, is also a folk DJ in Philadelphia. He's here too. In fact, we're rooming together.

Give up. You will never, ever catch up with every new TV show that's out there. There's a reason for that, says Melanie McFarland, television critic for Salon: "There were more than 450 new shows that premiered last year across broadcast, cable and streaming."

After a day of statements, Tuesday's Supreme Court confirmation hearing was all about answers. Judge Neil Gorsuch was careful in his responses to Senate Judiciary Committee members, but there were still a number of insights that marked the day. Read our full Day 2 coverage here. These are five highlights:

Chicago police say they've located a missing teenage girl who was sexually assaulted in an attack streamed live on Facebook.

The Associated Press reports that the girl was apparently raped "by five or six men or boys" in the video, which was watched live by dozens of people.

It's the second incident in the past three months where an apparent violent crime in Chicago, with multiple assailants, was broadcast live on Facebook as it happened.

On Tuesday morning, the Department of Homeland Security announced new restrictions for personal electronics on direct flights to the U.S. from 10 airports in the Middle East and North Africa. Devices larger than a cellphone will not be allowed in the cabin, though they will be allowed in checked baggage.

Later Tuesday, the U.K. announced it would be enforcing a similar rule — using a slightly different list of countries.

The rule change in both countries was unexpected and the explanations for it cryptic.

Here's a quick look at what we know, and what we don't.

Designers are rolling out their spring lines and the runways are looking more diverse than ever. But the comparative abundance of models who are people of color didn't happen overnight.

There was the occasional — very occasional — model who wasn't white in the 50s and early 60s on runways. But African-American models put American couture on the map in 1973 when they walked the runway in France in what's become known as The Battle of Versailles.

Republican House leaders are making last-minute changes to their health care proposal in a bid to woo more conservatives ahead of a vote scheduled for Thursday.

One of those changes would let states impose work requirements on some Medicaid recipients. A handful of states asked the Obama administration for that authority but were denied.

When Donald Trump was elected president, his daughter Ivanka Trump said she would move to Washington, D.C., but not into a White House office.

Nevada has taken a crucial step closer to ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment — roughly 35 years after a deadline imposed by Congress. The state's Assembly approved the long-dormant measure in a largely party-line vote on Monday, sending it back to the state Senate for a final blessing.

Bangladesh has done a great job of getting more toilets to more people. Now it needs to figure out how to empty them.

President Trump made the trip up Pennsylvania Avenue to close the deal with members of his own party on a bill that, on the face of it, does what Republicans have been promising to do for years: Repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

He came with a tough love message for members of his own party.

"Looks like you'd be ripe for a primary if you don't keep your promise," the president told the group of lawmakers in a closed-door meeting, according to Rep. Blake Farenthold. "He did say that," the Texas Republican adds.
