Searchers have found the bodies of a Santa Rosa couple whose plane went down in the Sierra Nevadas last month. The Sierra County Undersheriff has confirmed the bodies of Brenda and Mark Richard were found Wednesday, the day after their plane was spotted. The couple had flown out of the Truckee-Tahoe Airport April 17 headed for Petaluma when they disappeared. Their plane had an emergency locater transmitter but for some reason it failed. The plane was estimated by radar and cell data to be in a 400-square-mile area northwest of Truckee and crews looked for the Richards for six days after the crash before suspending the search.

The Middletown Art Center has won a California Arts Council Local Impact Grant for 2017 for their yearlong project called “Resilience” which will explore the local impacts of the four recent major fires. Executive Director Lisa Kaplan says the grant will allow them to provide broad access to the arts for all residents of Lake County with the multi-disciplinary project focused on the regeneration of nature after the Jerusalem, Rocky, Valley and Clayton fires.

The project will include workshops and master classes in painting, photography, printmaking and poetry/spoken word that anyone 12 and up can attend for just $5 per class or $60 for a complete series in one discipline. Kaplan says the project will culminate in a countywide art exhibit and a book showcasing images and words from the overall project.
