The closure is on the south side of the Yuba River Ranger District and generally includes Tahoe National Forest lands, roads, and trails between Highway 20 and Interstate 80.

The forest closure does not apply to: any Federal, State or local officer, or member of an organized rescue or fire fighting force in the performance of an official duty; persons with a permit from the Forest Service specifically authorizing the otherwise prohibited act or omission; and owners or lessees of land in the area and residents in the area, unless the area is subject to a County Sheriff’s mandatory evacuation order.

“Safety is always the number one priority for the Forest Service,” said Karen Hayden, District Ranger for the Yuba River Ranger District. “We appreciate everyone’s support in respecting the closure and our effort to keep the public and our fire fighters safe.”

A detailed map of the closure area and more information, including the closure order, can be obtained at Tahoe National Forest offices, as well as online at www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/tahoe/alerts-notices.

Lowell Fire information is also available by calling the Tahoe National Forest fire information line at (530) 478-6101 or the Cal Fire information line at (530) 823-4083.

The Casual Vacancy centers on Pagford, a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war; the rich at war with the poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. Pagford is not what it first seems.

Ben Stiller ( The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Zoolander) and Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts (Best Actress, The Impossible, 2012; St. Vincent) star in Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Noah Baumbach’s (Best Original Screenplay, The Squid and the Whale, 2005) comedy, While We’re Young. The film takes a look at the weird, upended logic of urban sophisticates: the older ones embracing their iPads and Netflix, the young ones craving vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes. After Josh (Stiller) and his wife Cornelia (Watts) meet a free-spirited twenty-something couple (Driver and Seyfried), they adopt a new lifestyle complete with hip-hop dance classes and mind-expanding parties. But with each hilarious attempt to act young, Josh and Cornelia start to appreciate the rewards of growing old together. While We’re Young features an outstanding ensemble cast including Adam Driver (HBO’s “Girls”), Amanda Seyfried ( Les Misérables), Charles Grodin ( Midnight Run) and Adam Horovitz (Beastie Boys bandmember Ad-Rock).

As the volunteer director for the Bay Area Youth Dance Team, Vanessa Scott was shocked when one of her 15-year-old students became ensnared in the web of human trafficking and was forced into prostitution. Like many Bay Area residents, Scott was unaware that the San Francisco area ranks as one of the nation’s main hubs for human trafficking, a crime that includes sex trafficking, child labor, forced labor and domestic servitude.

al Fire sets up Base Camp on Gold Path at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.
Big_John.jpg
Big John, a draft horse who has been evacuated from his home, is one of many animals who are safe at the Fairgrounds
July 26, 2015 - Due to the Lowell Fire, currently burning in Nevada and Placer counties, Cal Fire and assisting agencies have set up a command post and fire camp at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Additionally, the Nevada County Veterinary Disaster Response Team has set up an evacuation center at the Fairgrounds for large and small animals.

Due to the large number of resources utilizing the fire camp, the Fairgrounds will be closed to walkers and bicyclists until further notice.

During the duration that the camp is set up, Gate 1 will be open to Fair employees and Fair business (those visiting the Fairgrounds’ administration office) only, Gate 4 will be open to campers, Gate 8 will be open for animal evacuation, and all other gates will be closed to the public and restricted to authorized fire personnel only.

These closures and restrictions do not affect the Main Office, which is open during its normal business hours of Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. Additionally, limited RV camping will be available by contacting the Main Office.

During this time, the Nevada County Fairgrounds is also being used as an evacuation center for small and large animals. The Fairgrounds are open and equipped to handle large and small animals brought to the Fairgrounds. Several animals are already on the grounds, and the Fairgrounds will continue to receive and house animals as needed. Those with animals impacted by the fire, or those who need to remove animals to a safer location, are encouraged to use the Fairgrounds. If you need information or have questions regarding animal evacuations, contact Pat, Nevada County Veterinary Disaster Response Team (Animal Evac), at (530) 913-6506.

According to Mike Mohler, Public Information Officer with Cal Fire Incident Management Team 1, the fire camp, which was established on July 25, currently houses more than 700 individuals, as well as large equipment required to fight the fires.

For updated fire information and evacuation updates, contact the Cal Fire information line at (530) 823-4083 or visit Cal Fire’s website at www.fire.ca.gov.
