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 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. 

Approximately 100 people were evacuated from their homes in Lakeport Monday as water levels in Clear Lake hit their highest mark in decades.

The mandatory evacuations were issued  at around 4:30 p.m. for  four locations: Lucky Four Resort at 1060 N. Main St., Aqua Village Mobile Home Park at 1350 S. Main St., Willow Point Resort  at 1 First St, and and Esplanade Street from Main Street to K. Street.

LOWER LAKE--The myriad of debris in Lower Lake left by the destructive Clayton Fire — at least on the state level — has been cleaned up, Lake County officials said Wednesday.

 

According to county Environmental Health Director Ray Ruminski, Cal Recycle completed its debris removal work on more than 150 properties in the burn area last week. Most were properties whose owners granted a right of entry to the state program while a handful were nuisance abatements issued by the county.
