NL playoffs: Washington Nationals to play in first World Series

By HOWARD FENDRICH / AP Sports Writer WASHINGTON — It was merely the first inning, yet the home fans kept rising out of their seats to applaud or yell or twirl their red towels, to chant “Let’s go, Nats!” and “M-V-P!” and various players’ names, enjoying every moment of a seven-run outburst that would, eventually, propel their city to its first World Series appearance in 86 years. And then, a couple of hours and several innings later, as the Washington Nationals were protecting a shrinking lead, those same spectators, 43,976 strong, stood and shouted and reveled some more Tuesday night, giddily counting down the outs needed to finish off an NL Championship Series sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals. From 19-31 during a mediocre May to the Fall Classic in an outstanding October. Extending their stunning turnaround, the wild-card Nationals got RBIs from middle-of-the-order stars Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto in that breakout first inning, and Patrick Corbin’s 12-strikeout performance and a trio of relievers helped hold on to beat St. Louis 7-4 in Game 4 of a lopsided best-of-seven NLCS. “Often, bumpy roads lead…

Former library demolition begins in preparation for jail expansion

RED BLUFF — Demolition of the former Tehama County Library on Madison Street, which has been vacant since the library moved to Diamond Avenue in August 2017, was well underway Tuesday, nearly the entire middle section torn out by about 1 p.m. Demolition of the building in preparation for the jail expansion began about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday and the contractor plans to have the site cleared and the job finished by Monday or Tuesday, said Tehama County Staff Analyst Brant Mesker. The $115,000 contract with Resource Environmental for the demolition of the building was approved at the July 23 Board of Supervisors meeting. The company is based in Fresno, but is staged out of an office in Woodland. The company had 30 days to get the demolition completed once on site. The removal of the old building is being paid for from the county’s general fund and was budgeted as part of the accumulated capital outlay budget. It is not anticipated to be reimbursable through a state grant, according to county staff. The jail expansion project, estimated to be $23 million as of a February…

Corning council moves to limit problems in city parks

CORNING — The council Aug. 8 heard the first reading of an ordinance that would limit activities in city parks and voted unanimously in favor of it. Police Chief Jeremiah Fears proposed the ordinance, which would ban park activities from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., prohibit smoking or vaping in the parks, limit alcohol consumption or possession where signs are posted, disallow firecrackers and fireworks and forbid the possession and discharge of dangerous weapons like firearms, air guns, bows and arrows and slingshots. The ordinance came about due to ongoing issues in the parks and the city revisiting the municipal code for potential updates, said Angel Garman, Public Works sectary. “I think it has been reported on numerous occasions the types of vandalism that we are experiencing and the illicit activities making it uncomfortable for users, all types of users, to utilize our parks,” said Kristina Miller, city manager. Miller presented the ordinance to the council because Fears was away on other business. Councilman Robert Snow said he would like to see something added to the ordinance about special occasions, like permitted sporting events at…

Mount Shasta Community Stunned Over Roseville Quadruple Homicide Investigation

MT. SHASTA (CBS13) – The Mount Shasta Police Chief was shocked by murder suspect Shankar Hangud showing up to the Police Department and confessing to killing four people Monday. Chief Parish Cross said he hasn’t seen an investigation like this in his 15 years of service. “No one is immune, no community is immune from it. When they do happen, it’s hard to handle,” he said. Police say Hangud drove a body, an adult male relative, through farm fields past Shasta Lake and through the mountains. He ended up on Mt. Shasta Boulevard downtown. “People are upset and disappointed and shocked,” said Cross. Now the Roseville Police Department, which is leading this investigation, is looking into how Hangud ended up in Siskiyou County. “Why he’d end up here is unknown, he said we’re right on the freeway, and you have a lot of people who come into town,” Cross said.

Police Find Stolen U-Haul Van Filled With Bags Of Identifying Information; Three Arrested

VACAVILLE (CBS13) — Police in Vacaville arrested three suspects Tuesday morning on multiple charges including vehicle theft and identity theft. The police department said they received a report of people looking into vehicles at a hotel on Lawrence Drive. When officers arrived at the hotel, they found a U-Haul van that was reported stolen the day before. As they were investigating, officers saw Sacramento residents Doug Brown, 30, and Samantha Krauss, 21, watching the officers from a window. The officers confronted Brown and Krauss as they tried to leave the building. Brown reportedly discarded methamphetamine in front of an officer while holding a U-Haul key. Officers discovered 29-year-old Anthony Solis was also with the pair. Through a search of the U-Haul, officers found multiple bags of identifying information. Officers have already identified 100 victims from across California and Oregon. The three suspects were arrested for vehicle theft, identity theft, conspiracy and violations of their probation.

Construction to Begin On Three-Year Highway 132 Project In Modesto

MODESTO (CBS13) — Modesto will soon begin work on the largest transportation project the city has ever seen. The project will re-route a portion of Highway 132 to reduce traffic in the region, but not everybody is happy about the plan. The oldest locally-owned body shop in Modesto, Burnside Body Shop, has sat in the same location off of Kansas Street since the 1930s. It will soon be forced to relocate to make room for a major transportation project. The city released a video that shows the future of Highway 132. “It’s a project that will allow us to add capacity for a heavily-used section of highway that goes between Modesto and ultimately all the way down to Tracy,” Modesto spokesperson Thomas Reeves said. The Modesto City Council recently approved a $92 million contract with Bay Cities Paving and Grading to build nearly four miles of new road northwest of downtown Modesto. “This state Highway 132 is really the only alternative to 120 up in Manteca, so those commuters… will be able to use this route to head over to the Altamont Pass,” Reeves said.…
