Hefty price tag for summer's wildfires taking toll
YREKA, Calif. -- The hefty price tag for this summer's wildfires is taking its toll. Some agencies are feeling it in their pocket books only months into the fiscal year. 

The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors met with the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office this afternoon to discuss the current budget. The sheriff's department said they are needing more assistance after recent wildfires.

Sheriff John Lopey is no stranger to the council. He explained his department is in need of more funding because of the drain on the budget from fires that used over 40 percent of the budget for fire aid alone.

"The county isn't in a position to give me more money, so I am going to have to absorb that in my budget which means I may have to freeze a position," Sheriff Lopey said. 

The Boles Fire is one of the fires grouped into that price tag. But the total is still being tallied. State grants and help from the U.S. Forest Service is expected to help reimburse some of the costs.

Wehby to debate in Medford Oct. 14
MEDFORD, Ore. -- Candidates for Oregon state senator have agreed to one debate to be held Oct. 14 in Medford.

Republican candidate Monica Wehby rejected a recent debate invitation but says she will be at 3 upcoming debates. 

Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley's campaign says he will look over the campaign schedule before deciding whether to participate. 

California governor expands student privacy rights
SACRAMENTO -- California Governor Jerry Brown approved a bill protecting students' privacy rights. 

The bill bans companies from using a students personal information for profit. 

It requires providers to use the data only for school purposes and it bans the sale of a student's person identification to third parties and advertisers.

Fuel your school
MEDFORD, Ore. -- You can help drive-up funds for local teachers and students by participating in Chevron's "Fuel Your School" fundraier throughout October.

If you put at least eight gallons of gas in your tank at participating gas stations in Jackson or Josephine counties, Chevron and Colvin Oil will donate $1 to help fund a local school project.

Teachers can go online to request equipment for a classroom project if it enhances education. This includes everything from iPads to classroom rugs for students. 

Chevron and Colvin Oil will buy and deliver the requested items to the schools.

Aerial view shows aftermath of Boles Fire
WEED, Calif. -- New video shows an aerial view of the aftermath left behind by the Boles Fire. 

Douglas Wade captured the destruction on his drone while visiting Weed. 
The video helps show the large number of homes that fell to the flames and how the flames totally destroyed some houses, but did not touch others just feet away.

Wade also took these photos showing a before and after of Weed. You can see entire streets of homes were leveled by the flames. 

This photo was taken from a street corner, which is now completely charred with almost everything reduced to ash. 

Klamath Co. man wanted for arson
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- The Klamath County Sheriff's Department needs your help finding a man accused of arson.

Deputies say Steven Wise intentionally set a home on fire with two people inside last night. 

Wise is on the run and described as a white man, 6-feet-2-inches tall, weighing 170-pounds. 

If you see Wise, call the Klamath County Sheriff's Office.

Panel: Spend $100 million a year to prep for quake
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A panel of experts is recommending that Oregon spend at least $100 million a year to prepare schools and emergency buildings for a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake.

The recommendation is among nearly two dozen sent to state lawmakers on Tuesday. The Legislature last year created a task force to recommend immediate steps that can be taken to improve Oregon's ability to withstand a massive offshore quake.

The panel says the money should be used to retrofit unsafe buildings, tear them down or replace them.

Other suggestions include hiring an earthquake adviser to the governor and developing education programs for schoolchildren, businesses and the public.

The panel says local governments also should take into account the latest tsunami inundation maps when developing building codes.

California ends one of driest-ever water years
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California officials are urging residents and businesses to conserve water as the state ends one of the driest-ever "water years."

The California Department of Water Resources says the state received less than 60 percent of the average precipitation in the 2014 water year that ends Tuesday.

The department says the state's major reservoirs collectively held only 57 percent of average water storage on Sept. 1

Department Director Mark Cowin says day-to-day water conservation is essential because the state could face a fourth consecutive dry winter, which is typically California's rainy season.

Officials say recent storms haven't dented the state's drought and forecasters can't predict if California will get enough major storms to end the drought.
California's water year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.
