Investigators this week arrested a Roseville wrestling coach and former Olympian, accused of sexual misconduct with teen athletes he was training as part of a sports business he ran from his home. Quincey Lee Clark, 50, was arrested by Roseville Police Tuesday, on suspicion of committing lewd and lascivious acts upon a child. Clark remained in custody Wednesday afternoon at Placer County Jail, being held in lieu of $250,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court today.
Assemblymembers Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) presented Sacramento County with a $25 million check and outlined plans to address homelessness along the American River Parkway during a press conference, Wednesday morning.
The funds would cover the start-up costs to shelter about 620 people a year in non-congregate sleeping cabins. This, combined with designated camping areas, would allow the county to serve more individuals, and transform the county’s ability to get people connected to shelter and services while restoring and protecting the parkway.
MOSQUITO FIRE STATUS as of 7:10 PM LAST NIGHT: All evacuation orders for both Placer and El Dorado counties have now been lifted, allowing residents to return home. With a wetting rain the past four days, fire activity has been minimal, and the Mosquito Fire has remained in its current footprint. Firefighters used this opportunity to make progress around the fire before the next warming trend arrives tomorrow.
Firefighters continue patrolling the southern and western sides of the fire to ensure no hot spots, threats of escape, or dangerous conditions threatening communities. On the north end of the fire, crews are working to secure and hold control lines along Deadwood Road and strengthen the fire lines heading south into the North Fork of the Middle Fork of the American River. Working in steep, rugged, and slippery conditions, crews have pushed down into the river drainages of the North Fork of the Middle Fork and the Middle Fork of the American River to tie in control lines and secure the eastern flank of the fire. With many of these sections completed, firefighters will strengthen them to ensure they hold. Crews have also completed most of the portions of the control line from Eleven Pines Road and McCulloh down to the edge of the Rubicon River drainage. Crews and equipment are continuing hazard abatement work in the Ramsey Crossing area. These operations include removing fire weakened trees and snags that pose safety issues to firefighters and roadways.
Suppression repair work continued throughout the day where no active fire suppression efforts are underway. This work includes addressing more than 200 miles of dozer line around the Mosquito Fire in which the berms will be removed, and water bars will be implemented to reduce erosion. Forest resource advisors are working directly with these crews to repair the hand and dozer fire lines, roads, trails, staging areas, safety zones and drop points used during the fire suppression effort. Dry weather with a warming trend is expected today into next week. Warmer temperatures, lower humidity, and light winds are expected.
