A newly cleared trail is bringing the first visitors to a 300-foot waterfall in Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. The falls are tucked away in a remote corner of a 43,000-acre parcel of wild land administered by the National Park Service. Russ Weatherbee, a wildlife biologist for the park service, said he had heard for years about a large waterfall on one of the forks of Crystal Creek, a stream that drains the western quadrant of the recreation area.

Faced with a shrinking budget and a multimillion-dollar bill to keep the city's creeks clean, city officials have proposed putting Redding's creeks up for adoption.

You can see the work of architect Santiago Calatrava at the Olympics this summer in Athens; in the revitalization of parts of Valencia, Spain; and in the new PATH transportation terminal at the World Trade Center site in New York.

Volunteers are preparing to do battle with an invasive and fast-growing weed that is choking out native plants along Shasta County creeks. The arundo donax is an aggressive Mediterranean plant that looks like bamboo but can grow 4 inches a day and reach heights of 30 feet. It also consumes about 80% more water than other plants.

Thieves may have spent more than a month chiseling through a concrete bank vault before employees noticed that an undisclosed amount of money was missing, Redding police officers said. The Bank of America branch's vault alarm sounded several times over a span of five weeks before May 12, when workers finally realized the vault had been broken into. "Each time the alarm activated, the police responded and found the bank secure," Redding Police Capt. Dave Mundy said.

Starting Jan. 1, the city will begin cleaning up a piece of public land that has served as a de facto dump for years, with the hope of turning it into a prime public recreation area. Once slated to be a municipal landfill, Oregon Gulch is filled with used tires, household garbage and unwanted appliances. The gulch is a popular spot for dirt biking, which has eroded the hillsides and caused silt to slide into the Sacramento River.
