The lights were back on Tuesday in Santa Cruz County, where self-styled environmentalists claimed responsibility for downing electrical transmission lines that left 95,000 residents without power. But no one was celebrating. Authorities have no suspects in Sunday and Monday's sabotage incidents.

Despite a little firefighting help from Mother Nature and the governor's office, a wind-blown blaze in Butte County spread to more than 8,000 acres Thursday, destroying about 30 homes and forcing more than 9,000 residents in a rural enclave to flee the flames. Fire leaped up canyons toward Paradise, a heavily wooded town of nearly 30,000 residents 15 miles northeast of Chico, despite improving conditions during a day that saw winds in Northern California ease for the first time in three days.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by Charter Communications Inc. and its chairman, billionaire Paul Allen, in a dispute over its franchise in Santa Cruz County. Charter, the third-largest U.S. cable TV operator, said the county unlawfully barred Allen from taking control of its local franchise. It said the county set excessive requirements that violated its free-speech rights and a federal cable TV law.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday delayed plans to conduct aerial spraying against the light brown apple moth over 12 Northern California counties until safety tests are completed. In a separate decision, a Santa Cruz County judge ordered that spraying for the agricultural pest be stopped there pending a full environmental review. The decisions pose additional obstacles for state and federal farm officials, who have cast the battle against the voracious bug as an emergency, allowing them to sidestep normal review procedures.

A tree-sitter protesting logging fell from his redwood perch and onto a stump Tuesday near this Santa Cruz County community. The unidentified man was believed to have fractured an arm and leg. Steep terrain and gravel roads forced rescue workers to hike more than half an hour to get to the scene, said Dave Sumner, a senior emergency dispatcher.

A man undressing for bed at his summer home stumbled as he wrestled to remove his pants and fell out of a plate-glass window to his death, Santa Cruz County authorities said. Brent Stone, 47, a land developer from Stockton, fell 10 feet onto his concrete driveway early Sunday. He died of head injuries, authorities said. Stone's three children were also in the house, but he was alone in his second-floor bedroom at the time of the fatal accident, said Sheriff's Department spokesman Kim Allyn.
