Pacific Gas and Electric is claiming a private power line may have started the Tubbs fire in Santa Rosa last month. The cause of the Tubbs fire, which killed 21 people and destroyed more than 4,400 homes, remains under state investigation, but at least 10 lawsuits with more than 100 plaintiffs had been filed against PG&E claiming their poorly maintained power lines were responsible for the Tubbs and other fires started in the high winds on October 8. The Press Democrat cites court documents filed this week by PG&E say their investigations suggest the Tubbs fire may have been caused by electrical equipment that was “owned, installed and maintained by a third party”. PG&E did not name the third party, but referenced an area where investigators have been focused and have taken away some privately owned equipment.

The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration has issued a reminder today that anyone planning to sell cannabis or cannabis products beginning January 1, must register with them for a seller’s permit. Cultivators, processors, manufacturers, retailers, and distributors who make sales are all required to obtain and maintain a seller’s permit as a prerequisite for applying for a license with the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the Department of Food and Agriculture, or the Department of Public Health. If you already have a seller’s permit including one previously issued by the Board of Equalization you do not need to register for a new one.

The annual retiring of the flag at Clearlake’s Austin Park will be held Monday morning. The flag, donated by the Park Study Club, is flown above Austin Park each year between Memorial Day and Labor Day but Clearlake City Manager Greg Folsom tells Lake County News this year they were asked to keep it up until Veteran’s Day in honor of the local veterans and their service to our country. So this Monday, the city of Clearlake, along with children from Konocti Unified School District, the Park Study Club, the Lake County Fire Protection District, and the American Legion, will hold the annual flag lowering and retirement ceremony at Austin Park at 11 a.m.
